So I'm looking through Anthony Bourdain's latest book (I went to see him in DC a couple months ago) and come across this picture. It looks obscene but it's not:
The caption reads: "Midnight Express II
at a traditional hamam (an Arab-style sauna). The single most painful,
embarrassing, and shameful episode of my life. This was not a massage.
This was torture. The freak you see rear-mounting me twisted, yanked,
bent, snapped, and pounded every muscle, bone, and tendon in my body.
Fortunately, I was so busy trying not to scream that I was unaware of
the sexual-humiliation component. I'm told the resulting footage was
very funny. Believe me, I didn't think so at the time." Ha!
