Gut Rumbles

I TOLD you that you can blog about anything.

I've been to only ONE whorehouse in my colorful life, and that was "Effies" in Athens, Georgia, a long time ago. The wimmen there serviced many a young college male, a LOT of whom lost their virginity in that place for a very reasonable price. (A 50-50 was $20 back then.) That place was an institution at the University of Georgia.

Effie's was a true whorehouse experience. You picked your partner, she took you to a room and washed your equipment with warm water and soap in a porcelan sink (a lot of inexperienced guys never got past that point without... well, you know what I mean), and then you did the deed in a perfumed bed. I thought the place was better than Disney World.

Somebody wrote me a tear-stained letter when the vice squad finally closed the place down sometime in the early 70s. That was like learning that a good friend died.

Every college town needs a good, honest whorehouse.


Pardon my ignorance, but what is a 50-50?
Is it like a 69?
(I don't visit whorehouse all that often...)

50-50 is fellatio followed by vaginal penetration.

Or so I have heard....

There used to be a place called Nellie's in Natchez, MS. Someone even made a T-shirt with footprints all over it, the message read "Follow me to Nellie's". She even had part-time, seasonal girls working there, some who would take vacation from their regular jobs up north, to come vacation in Natchez and make a little spending money... I was gonna say "on the side", but that pun just keeps getting bigger.

Then there was Mabel's in Zwolle, LA. And LeRoy's in Alexandria, LA. They all closed in the late '70's.
