Straight Guy just quizzed me about whether I knew what a "happy trail" is.
I gave him the stone cold stare I only use when I see people inside of costumes handing out flyers or free samples on the street. A combination of sorrow and disbelief.
Yes, I know what a happy trail is. In fact, I wouldn't have guessed that straight people used the expression.
What do you say, readers. . . Happy trail: gay or straight anatomy chart?
P.S.: I never try the samples from the person in the costume. It's just wrong. Unless it's cookies.
Hate to break it to you, GG. It's not gay code.
I first heard of the happy trail in rural (near-Amish) Pennsylvania back in the early 80s. The context was sexually naive but definitely straight.
Now that I'm much older, I'm searching for a similar term for the new random grouping of active follicles near my left shoulder blade.
Wow, this is truly a revelation. I thought my people were singularly advanced in this linguistic territory of happy, treasure, garden trails.
