Bangkok Thailand - How did that name happen?
HOW DID I LIVE ALL THESE YEARS WITHOUT KNOWING THIS?
THE KINGDOM OF THAILAND
I'll bet you never knew this!!!
In the original native culture of Thailand , when males reached the age of 18 they had to participate in the following community ceremony.
They lay themselves stark naked in a large circle, feet facing inward. A beautiful young naked girl kneels over the ankles of each the men.
She places a blob of honey and various crushed sweet fruits around his navel to attract flies and insects.
(This keeps them off his face during the ceremony.)
A specially chosen nubile and very beautiful naked girl then does a sexy and sensuous dance in the center of the circle.
As soon as all the men become fully aroused and develop erections, the kneeling girls then reach over the knees, pull the fully erected penises downwards as much as they can and then on a given signal from the center dancer release them.
The men's penises would then spring back up and go "WHAP!" against their belly.
This exercise was a measurement of the strength of their masculinity . . .the man who killed the most flies was elected to the court of the King.
And that folk's, is why the current capital of Thailand came to be named Bangkok .
