View Full Version : Mexican myth or reality ?

03-26-2002, 12:16 AM
Before posting this question here, I first tried to look this up on SNOPES, but didn't find anything about it. I tried a search hear, but didn't come up with anything.
What I want to know is, in Mexico, are the infamous "Donkey Shows" real, or just made up? They seem too disgusting to be real, but then again, a lot of disgusting things do go on in real life.

I live in El Paso, just across from Juarez, Mexico.

As far as I know, the Donkey Show is real. They have sort of cracked down on the more obvious vice along the border drags in Juarez and Tijuana, so the good old days of known donkey shows in nighclubs are probably gone (in defense of Mexico, if its possible, these only happened in border towns and mainly targeted a drunk, horny American audience). If they still have them they are more 'underground' now.

Friends of mine who went over there for a good time in the 1960's and 1970's certainly vouch for it being real in those days.

Wow, I was sure that I would be told that that story was made up. Lately, I've been finding out that a lot of stuff I've heard, either isn't true, or is highly questionable. And I've always been curious about this. Not because I want to see it (that would not be my idea of a good time) but because it's one of those things that when you hear it, especially when you hear about it a few times, a voice in the back of your mind keeps asking, "Is this for real?" .
Anyway thanks for giving me the answer. I appreciate it.

During one of my college years (1977) I took a ski trip with my girlfriend and her brother and his GF and another friend. Our ski destination was Ruidoso, and that allowed us a side trip to Juarez.

Our trip to Juarez was a lot of fun. We had a very nice dinner at an almost vacant restaurant where we figured out that letting the girls request the drinks was the order of the day. When we'd seen enough "Beatle Bars" in the town square, we all piled into a taxicab to ponder our next move.

As we conferred, I suddenly heard my GF say, "I want to see a donkey f*** a woman" and the cabbie just popped it into gear, and away we went (huddling to one side as this 1959 Chevy was missing a right rear passenger door).

He took us to an apparently vacant parking lot where there was, behold(!), a trap door that lead to an underground bar. When we arrived, the deal was apparent. The bar was full of women and we had to select.

My GF attempted to explain her quest, and we were rapidly accommodated. We were taken to a room where we were informed that there was a $2 a head room "tax" above the $40 we paid for the room. All of these rooms were off an underground network of tunnels.

So, we heard and saw them drag a donkey up the tunnel. But all we got were some homely Mexican hookers doin' each other with potatoes as their dildoes.

Ringo, that is the worst shaggy dog story I've ever heard.

Joel, trust your instincts. Cuate has not seen (and does not claim to have wanted to) a donkey show even though s/he lives near Juarez. Ringo was in Jaurez and tried to see one and did not. I am not convinced that they exist.

Fortunately Cecil has taken on the important topic of people having sex with animals (zoophilia) and his column about it will be out in a few weeks. So hang tight.
(Ew, that didn't sound right.)

Uhhh I don't think anyone wants direct proof.

Take our word for it they existed. I know that dogfighting, animal "crushing" with high heels fetish films, and "bukkakke" exist too but I never wanted to see them or delve too deeply into those topics. The Donkey Show falls into that category. You won't see them advertised in the "things to do" section of the local paper, but that doesn't mean they aren't out there.

I doubt if any doper would admit to seeing such a thing even if they did.

Mexico? Dunno.

But I know for sure that at least one occured in the Phillipines in the late 80's.


03-26-2002, 05:53 PM
...erm..."Philippines"? Yeah, that looks better.


03-26-2002, 08:51 PM
Thing 1, you make an exellent point. However, we all know that beastiality is real and cuate's point about it existing even though none of us have actually witnessed it is good too. Hmmm, I'm inclined to beleived that at least it did happen in the past, even if it doesn't happen now. Maybe they don't do it any more. Maybe the legend lives on, long after the deed has stopped being done.

I made a trip to SoCal several years ago, probably around 1988, and visited with my brother while I was there.

During my stay, we made a day trip down to Tijuana. During the trip, my brother's (now ex) girlfriend was telling me about some of the things they had done on previous trips. She mentioned that they had seen the infamous donkey show. I guess I looked skeptical, because she proceeded to tell me about it in great detail. Later I mentioned it to my brother and he said sure, they’d seen it. He didn’t seem that impressed, but did say it had really revved her motor (she did have some fairly interesting kinks, so I’m not too surprised at that.)

So while it’s not a first hand account, I do know people (my brother being one) who say they’ve seen it.

I guess we just got the wrong cabdriver.

I think that is what Joel is asking for since he acknowledges that bestiality exists and is familiar with stories of the donkey show. He evidently wants proof. I am not trying to be a jerk, but I thought the standards on this board were pretty high as to what constitutes proof. Second hand accounts and a failed attempt to see one do not convince me.

Let me be clear. I am not saying they do not exist, only that so far there is still no conclusive proof for them. This board is a very big place. Surely someone here has seen one. Maybe the Master will settle it once and for all.

Geez, folks, there are thousands of web sites with photos and videos of people boinking dogs and cows and sheep and snakes and whatever else you can imagine. What's so hard to imagine someone putting a stage show featuring a donkey/burro, regardless of country?

I'll take the disgustingness up a notch by saying that I had previously heard that much like Sea World, you had to be careful not to sit in the front row at the infamous Donkey Show in Tijuana because it was a 'splash zone'. That is, the female performer was known to direct the donkey's unit towards the crowd during orgasm aiming for obnoxious, drunk gringos.

That said, I had also heard it was oral sex only

Of course, I have tried to investigate this on my own with some of my wife's male family members because they are all Mexican and grew up in and around Tijuana. In their youth, they were pretty rowdy. My wife's father admitted he had heard of it, and even tried to look for it himself at one point out of curiousity but never found it. He tells me if you tell a cab driver to take you to the 'Donkey Show' you get dropped off at a generic strip bar where the cabbie gets a kickback and only after you pay your cover charge do you find out you've been had. "Sorry Senor...maybe the Donkey Lady be here manana..."

I don't have anything to add...I was just checking to see if this thread was about "fat burners"...

A student of mine was "working" on a computer in my room, she suddenly said "EEEw, want to see something disgusting?" I misguidedly said "yes". I'm now going through intensive therapy(and learning to practice saying "no" if anyone asks, especially a student, this again). The email contained a video of a small pony (possibly a Shetland) mounting a large woman. You couldn't see her head but she just lifts her skirt, bends down and the pony jumps on. The sound track is her moaning.
I was so shocked I deleted it immediately so can't tell you the web site it came from. I'm told by aforementioned student that there is a web site with lots of yucky things like this.

Well, I never thought I'd talk about this, but in view of the situation...

I myself have seen, live, a woman fellate a donkey. It was in 1994, in Nogales, in a journey which started out at a club called "Lord Black's" if I recall correctly, and ended at a filthy structure to the south of the town, with a sort of makeshift stage and bar, and planks for seating rather than tables.

Sadly for the interests of science, I did not stay for the conclusion of the act, but my traveling companions told me they witnessed full vaginal insertion of the donkey's member. I have no reason to doubt them, and, as I say, I personally witnessed the oral copulation portion of the entertainment.

It was not an arousing sight, and even if the goings-on had not been so repulsive, I can still recall how foul the place smelled.

So, there you have it.

Well, with a first hand acount by one of the boards more esteemed members I am convinced. The donkey show is a real event. Thanks Bricker. I think.
