Bhahaha, I was just reading that! Then I just HAD to look it up on Urban Dictionary;

1.A pubic hair piece. A toupee for the pubic area/genitals. In the 1700’s when mercury was used to treat sexually transmitted diseases (Gonorrhea or Syphilis) one of the side effects was the loss of pubic hair. To disguise this condition, that was not cured by mercury, a Merkin was employed.
17th Century setting: Due to his treatment of the "French Pox" (syphilis) with mercury a merkin Gwendolyn used a Merkin to used to hide the side effects of hair loss and not alarm her husband.

2.something george bush is constantly saying he is proud to be
"ah am proud, to be a merkin citezin"

3.A pubic Toupee

A family guy reference in two episodes
Man: "Hey kid, wanna buy a merkin?"
Chris: "What's a merkin?"
Man: "Why it's a pubic toupee"

#2 is CLASSIC!!!

heeeehheheeee hahahah omg, snort! Great stuff! I have a friend who did a fabulous performance a few years ago. She danced costumed as a sexy beaver then she stripped down to a merkin which was actually a full on head-wig. It hung a foot down from her crotch...caught everyone by surprise, hilarious!

i just want to tone but the reality is I need to weight lift to get back strength i lost when I was sick (took a lot of time for them to figure out I had Celiac's). But that is tempting. But even toned I'm not pretty or that perky so I am definately not on this kid's attractive list.

Dr. Pyro wrote:Hay! The Nude Bike Ride is on! Though we wanted it on Thursday it looks like it will be held again on Wednesday. So never fear denizens of the playa, there will be plenty of nude people you'd rather not look at hanging (as it were) around BDC&WB noonish Wednesday.
Well whoever changed thier mind and made it Wednesday instead of Thursday, thanks !!

I am the organizer/moderator of Critical Dicks.
http://tribes.tribe.net/criticaldicks

Last year the WNBR was on wednesday because I asked (Dale?) or whoever runs it to change it so that it didn't cross time schedules with the Critical Dicks March, it WAS on thursday the previous year, but by the time I saw it in the WWW guide it had already been finalized and he could not change it, or he would have.
There are a lot of people who like to do both and they had to make a decision, as the WNBR was at 11 and Critical Dicks was at noon in 2008.

I have heard nothing about why they want to drop the name, but there really is nothing political about the WNBR at BM, whereas the Critical Dicks March actually has something to say.
And yes, all genders or genderlessnesses are invited, just try to bring something dick-like you you don't already have one, and you don't have to be naked, many have worn diffferent dick costumes over the years, including myself.
Hell, you don't even have to bring a Dick, just show up and be a Dick supporter.

I am going to selflessly post this here, because it fits the topic.

So essentially because of Casanova's post the nude bike ride was resurrected and there will be more "unattractive" nude cyclists on the Playa.

I love Burning Man.

This year I am joining in for sure.
Beautiful point. It really does sum up the whole zeitgeist of the event.

Let's:

take this stripling's body issues and exclusionary fearful nature, educate, mock and acclimate him, and let's make lemonade . . . i.e., generate a useful dialogue on openmindedness and nudist theory (plus helpful merkin pictures) . . .

is actually much like:

let's devote months of preparation to travel many days to a cracked desert lake-bed where murderous sentry bovines and rabbits await and nothing survives, make a city, and do weird triumphant @#$& that we can barely report accurately later to our gobsmacked friends . . . because it's just awesome and we feel like it.

We are nothing if not consistent.

(Also, apparently naked.)

[quote="Casanova"]So this will be my first year attending the burn.. And my sister just told me it is a total nudist colony and everyone gets naked, and when I think of everyone only 10% (if that) of people are attractive, I assume she was just exaggerating because I have seen some really cool pictures of costumes so i know everyone is not naked. I am bringing my girlfriend and honestly I don't want to have my eyes fall out or be forced to look the other way every time someone walks by us that should be wearing clothes. I wanna keep our innocence from this kind of stuff, So if I attend Burning Man is this just out of the question?[/quote]

Come to my camp and we will draw on your flawed bits with a sharpie. Then we will mock you sorority style, spit on you, set you loose, then do a naked dance in hopes that you will not be returning to us.

The next time someone asks me if burningman is just a big rave/concert/sex-straviganza I'm going to punch them in the ovary and/or testicle. If you are here for the free beer go the fuck home.

Thanks, 'mancer. I know it's weird and all, but that is how my body was mad. No one want to do a head to toe, ...um... all the way down shave.

And I finally know why people wore merkins. THat had been a niggling question for many years.

Sorry you were sick, but glad they figured it out.

No part of my body has ever been perky. When my tits first showed up they immediately flopped down towards my navel. Some of us have more hidden gifts. ;-)
