Meet filipina whores
Mckay was shocked to learn that it still existed in what, based on his extensive conversations with Filipino seafarers, seemed like great numbers.
In the extremely limited body of academic literature on this topic, there aren't many numbers.
Some have one on top or bottom, and others have both.
One shipmate told Mc Kay that others have four, one on top and bottom and on both sides, "like the sign of the cross." Another said: "I have a friend at home, you know what his nickname is? "Seven." The practice is unique to Southeast Asia and dates back to at least the 16th century, though no one is sure if it has been continuous.
According to Lamvik, the Filipinos emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s as the most qualified option for the mostly European-owned businesses.When Norwegian anthropologist Gunnar Lamvik first began living in Iloilo city, a seafaring haven in the southern Philippines, he sensed he wasn't getting the richest and most detailed information about the shipping experience from interviews with his neighbors, who were home on two-month vacations from 10 months at sea.To crack the cultural mystery of any total institution, you have to go inside, he reasoned.He belted out the lyrics to "House of the Rising Sun." Then, he insisted on singing it again. It was in this type of loose, booze-flowing setting that he learned the most about the lives of his shipmates.And soon, conversations turned to perhaps the most fascinating part of the Filipino seafaring identity, the little-known and barely studied sexual practice of "bolitas," or little balls.
