The man in question even back then was known to us and the ladies who provided exotic dancing entertainment and he tips well. The man would often place himself in a conspicuous section of the club dimly lit and away from other male patrons at the gentleman’s club. I have seen the ‘equipment’ myself as he helped himself off but I was on the job [darnit]; a little eye candy doesn’t hurt [wink]. He seemed to have a fixation on ‘backing his fist’ in public as my DJ friend informed he has a reputation at other clubs but was asked to either desist with the action or make it more discreet or better yet engage one of the ladies who may be involved in offering commercial sex services. But he seems not interested in going so far in terms of contact directly. There was a similar case at a now closed strip club in Spanish Town on Brunswick Avenue where a masturbator also was cause for some upset there and he was asked to desist jacking off but not leave as the owners felt he may annoy other males in the building; although he was a big spender at the bar and tips. I was wondering if it is the same man in this present case as my DJ friend was not able to confirm.
The present incident concerned occurred in February 2016 around 1am as the club ambiance heated up. The ladies were doing their thing; patrons were busy cheering or darting about by the bar as a regular good night. The masturbator took his seat with drinks in hand and was observing like others. He then flipped out the erect member and proceeded to help himself off. A particular dancer who was also a favourite of mine but being on the job I could not engage whose on stage character is a nurse in an open crotch mini nurse’s uniform complete with a cat’s imagery as in a tail, painted on whiskers makeup and a nurses’ hat. She was the object of the goodly jacking gentleman no sooner she took the stage.
However his proximity to another table with other male patrons watching while he was openly jacking was the straw that broke the camel’s back; the men were riled according to my DJ source and of course the usual ‘battyman’ ‘fish’ accusations came flying both as a way to smear an opponent and his manhood and because he had an erection openly displayed near other men. Shouts exchanged, the music stopped as the DJ (another one on duty and not my source) saw the disturbance by the spot. Penis tucked away quickly the man defended himself ably. He was just as vocal and animated at the other men who wanted him to move away from them or leave the club or they would leave. Frankly I would have preferred them to leave as it is better to have repeat business from regulars than newbies who simply are pass throughs given the situation. One man my DJ friend said asked why was the management allowing ‘battyman’ to come to a straight club? As if to suggest they should screen patrons sexual orientation [how stupid].
The embarrassed man eventually left the club after the clash went on for a good half an hour with the men determined he should leave but some of the ladies and management suggesting an alternative where he would sit at another seat away from them with a relocation of the table and seating so as to create breathing space. We laughed at the issue as my DJ brethren continued but the matter also raises the issue of sexuality in Jamaica; the use of open spaces involving sexual matters; tolerance and public displays of sex acts. Some of the ladies followed him outside a bid to console him I imagine or work some funds from him as a girl as to turn it for her coins, simply put.
A case some time ago had a stripper being charged for touching a man’s penis bizarrely as the matter was brought to the court.
As Jamaica moves on ever so slowly on breaking taboos I guess we will continue to see such extra ordinary occurrences until we settle.
Peace & tolerance
