At a recent dinner party for an emigre friend visiting from
Florida, I remember Claudia Robinson describing the various
Jamaican dishes for an American guest. "Eating Jamaican food is
positively a sexual experience," she remarked as she went on to
extol the sensuousness of the numerous subtle flavours combined
in mackerel rundown.
The validity of her statement never really struck me until a day
or so later while I was eating a mango - nothing equates oral sex
Peeling off the skin with little bites and licking the juice as
it spills is very akin to the preliminary teasing with teeth and
tongue that initiates cocksucking. When the skin is completely
off and the meaty body of the mango presents itself is equivalent
to the tumescence of a full erection. Then the whole thing is
engorged in the mouth, laved, sucked and nibbled. The lips are
very involved at this stage, stretching and contracting as they
wrap around the luscious object.
After this, when the seed is exposed, the vigorous sucking and
pumping motions begin in earnest. The jaw muscles are brought
heavily into play - effective exercise and practice for the real
thing. The seed is sucked dry of every last drop of golden juice,
until it is white (limp) from exhaustion.
The experience of eating mangoes is often not complete without
getting hairs stuck between your teeth. Size queens, naturally,
prefer Hayden (Beefy) or East Indian mangoes. The former are large,
heavy and very full, while the latter are longer and more
Given that mango eating is so much a a part of our culture,
Jamaican males should be particularly good at fellatio. However,
I have disappointedly found this to be not so. They may capitulate
to being blown but show no interest in blowing. With all the
practice they have had in sucking mangoes and with the well-
developed jaw muscles that this affords, one would have thought
otherwise. If I am wrong, I would love to be corrected. My mango
is ripe and ready.
