Good Morning people,

I had an interesting conversation this morning. The topic on deck was Jamaican slang, dances, and music. While chopping it up my people i introduced her to one of my favorite songs, "Dagga Dat" by Reggae artist, Bragga. (heavy in the rotation on my iPhone) I quickly shot her a copy of the youtube link to checkout the vid and realized she could barely understand the lyrics... Doing what i do, i looked up an article and explained what the song was really about.. Needless to say, it was an interesting convo so i've decided to share what i found.

Right now in Jamaica, the ban on “daggarin” is a big issue. For people living “a foreign” (abroad/overseas) this is probably news to you. But before we get into the details, don’t you want to know what is “DAGGARIN?”
No, daggering is not some insane stabbing done by Jamaicans. And no it is not a Jamaican form of sword fighting …pause. The Jamaican Broadcasting Commission, who banned “daggarin” in the first place defines it as “a colloquial term used in dancehall culture as a reference to hardcore sex or what is popularly referred to as dry sex, or the activities of persons engaged in the public simulation of various sexual acts and positions”.

The truth is, I can try to tell you about daggering or you can actually witness it with your own eyes. Here is a video of “daggarin” done by emerging dancehall artist, Aidonia. read

It's a matter of option. If the men are going around breaking/snapping/injuring their penises becuz of daggerin', then that's their fault. I don't think that the government should try to control it. If you wanna break ya dicky, den break ya dam dicky...You'll learn betta sooner or later.LOL

I'm Loquacious...but I'll digress. said...

I've been to a few parties and i've seen tons of vids, that ishhhh is crazy....

it damn near seems painful on both sides of the equations. Now folks growing up in/around that is gonna think that is the proper way to get it in.... **Shakes head** That ish maybe fun everyonce in a while but i don't think it should be one's default setting, if you get my drift.

B. Free,

and i don't believe government should have the right to ban it!!! what's next, what happens if you eat your food too sensually or to aggressively???
