At Beltane people had sex in the fields to ensure good crops, so why not have sex to ensure a good tourist season?  ;D

Yes, that's what I was alluding to. It would be especially gross in New Orleans because the king is a middle aged man and the queen is a college student. Then again, historically that's probably a fairly common trait of sex-for-good-fortune pairings.

Ehh, I think it gets more complicated between straight people, for a number of reasons.  :-\

But also ...  :o




Yeah, I know about it but I haven't seen it. I don't like scary movies.

You realize, of course, that a pole like that, like a May pole also, is an ancient phallic symbol?

Of course I do, it's common knowledge here.

Midsommar is one of the relatively few holidays that have nothing to do with Christianity.

It's an ancient celebration of summer and fecundity.
