Teabagger or Tea Bagger (Teabagging or Tea Bagging)

"Teabagging” (or “tea-bagging” or “tea bagging") is a sexual slang term about an oral sex act. The male’s scrotum is the “tea bag.” The slang dates to at least 1994; in 1998, “teabagging” was mentioned in a slang dictionary and in the John Waters film Pecker.

Political “tea parties” were scheduled for April 15, 2009 (tax day) to protest against high taxes (TEA=Taxed Enough Already) and against big government. People attending the tea parties were mostly Republicans, conservatives and independents. Those not attending the tea parties (such as Democrats, liberals and other independents) derided the tea party-goers with the sexual slang term “teabagger” (or “tea-bagger” or “tea bagger").

The terms “teabagging,” “tea bagging,” “teabagger’” and “tea bagger” were entered in the Urban Dictionary in April 2009, with some entries dated before the April 15th tea party. 

The terms “teabagging” and “teabagger” can be regarded as offensive, especially to a tea party participant who knows the original sexual slang meanings.


Wikipedia: Teabagging
Teabagging is a slang term for the act of a man placing his scrotum in the mouth or on or around the face (including the top of the head) of another person, often in a repeated in-and-out motion as in irrumatio. The practice resembles dipping a tea bag into a cup of tea.

The practice
Teabagging is an activity used within the context of BDSM and male dominance, with a dominant man teabagging his submissive partner as one variation of facesitting and/or as a means of inflicting erotic humiliation. Teabagging is not always carried out with a solely “sexual” connotation.

Teabagging has been used during hazing or bullying incidents. Incidents have included reports of groups holding down victims while the perpetrator “shoves his testicles in [their] face” or puts their “crotch to his head.”

Mimicking teabagging has become popular in online video games. It is portrayed by the winning player positioning his character over the fallen character’s face (often repeatedly crouching) to imply domination or humiliation.

Use as a political term
In 2009, groups known as Tea Parties were formed to protest United States government tax and spending policies. Media outlets began to use the term ‘Teabaggers’ as a criticism of the entire Tea Party movement, making use of language and accoutrement employed by some of its members. An article in Salon.com by Alex Koppelman traced the controversy to a photograph by David Weigel posted on The Washington Independent website on 27 February, showing a protester holding a sign that read “Tea Bag the Liberal Dems Before They Tea Bag You!!” Weigel’s report was referenced by bloggers, including Wonkette, who used “teabagging” or “teabagger” in their headline. Several critics of the protesters, including Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, and Anderson Cooper, used the slang in their broadcasts. Cooper later apologized, calling the term “silly” and stating that his use of it detracted from his serious reporting.

The term’s growth in the political arena earned attention by the Oxford American Dictionary, and it achieved finalist status for the OAD Word of the Year.

Although I’ve written this article before,due to the amount of mail received,I found that I may have been a little vague.So here is a less vague version of my post.

TEABAGGIN’

Teabaggin’ is very simple,first you get the bithch to lay on her back,I’ll use femine pronounds because I am heterosexuall---do not take it that this cannot apply to a homosexuall relationship,please.Next you piss into her mouth,making very sure she doesn’t dribble a drop...as long as she holds most it is quite ok.Then ,lurch over your woman and proceed to dip/dunk your ball sack like your favorite brand of tea.THIS IS NOT ALL!!

Afterwards,you fuck her in the ass....now pay attention,after you cum,DO NOT remove your dick from her dirty hole...let it get soft in there...then let her SHIT it out.

Tea Bagging
Another mouth move that I’ve heard men totally enjoy is what I call Tea Bagging. Start with him lying on top and then ask him to get on all fours and crawl over you. Then scott down beneath him, leaving a trail of kisses on his chest and tummy, then, when your mouth is beneath his groin, place your hands on his hips to guide and lower his hips, dipping his balls into your mouth. Invariably, his penis will harden and do a little bonk, bonk jig against your forehead. If you have enough space in your mouth, try to take both balls inside. But if you can’t, don’t worry—most women are not able to do this.

TEABAGGING IN OUR TIME
New Illinois Governor Loves Teabagging
3:25 PM on Mon April 6 2009
By Ken Layne
Early this morning, in Wonkette’s Daily Briefing, we had this to say about Blago’s replacement: “There’s a new Illinois governor, right? And he is ’squeaky clean.’ So god only knows what kind of kinky stuff will bring this guy down.” Now we know: New Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is one of the original practitioners of the political sex-creep stunt of “tea-bagging.”

Jesus, we knew it would be bad, but we didn’t know how bad:

He has built a reputation for political stunts; three years ago, he urged utility customers to mail tea bags with their payments to protest rate hikes.

April 15 Tax Protesters: Don’t Call Us ’Tea Baggers’!
by Steve Weinstein
EDGE Editor-In-Chief
Wednesday Apr 15, 2009
It all began on CNBC, where a newsman in Chicago proposed an updated version of the Boston Tea Party to protest the Obama Adminstration’s bailouts and stimulus plan. “No taxation without representation” was the rallying cry of the original protesters, who dressed as Native Americans and threw British tea overboard in Boston Harbor.

The “tea party” concept spread through the Internet and right-wing talk shows such as Sean Hannity and Fox News, which has become a sort-of sponsor of these rallies. On April 15, thousands are expected to protest in cities across the country.

Only now, the protesters and their organizers are fighting a battle on two fronts: not only against what they see as a government gone wild with giveaways; but ridicule for the double meaning of “tea bagging.”
