So thIs Is what Mexico’s hipsters Are drinking nowPRI #Navigate_DownAugust 25, 2019
Rock, cumbia and musica romantica beats from a jukebox along the back wall.
Chattering drinkers pack tightly from the saloon-style swinging doors to the tile bar.
Long the province of peasants and poor townfolk, pulque has been reborn this century as a buzz of choice among young, forward-leaning and better-heeled urbanites.
For those able to relish its taste and texture — admittedly still a select few — pulque provides a sip of the past, quaffed in the shadow of the modern.
It’s also just about $1.65 a pint, and a nearly hangover-proof means of getting hammered.
“Of every hundred people who come in now perhaps two or three are older.”
Pulquerias once flourished in Mexico’s capital and other cities.
An artist puts finishing touches on a Aztec-inspired mural in Las Duelistas, one of the most popular pulquerias, in Mexico City’s historical center.
“They treat pulque like a fad,” says Melly Leyva, 46, who has tended bar at La Hija de los Apaches, her family’s pulqueria a few blocks from the Mexico City coroner’s office, for more than 20 years.
A few older men huddle over corner tables or behind a protective pillar at the bar.
Adult spanking is a curious thing. I mean, most of us did not like being spanked as children. We dreaded spankings, didn’t we? So, why do so many of us long to be spanked as adults. I think for some of us, it is for sexual pleasure. For others, it is to meet an emotional need. Maybe we feel we deserve it before we enjoy fucking. Some parts of society make women feel we are bad if we enjoy being fucked. So, maybe we feel better about our longing if we are punished first. I will tell you why I want you to spank me.
