1. The Masturbator on the A Train: NYC. on the way to Corner Bistro in the village (amazing burgers) after exposing himself to me he moved directly in front of me to 'give it a tug.' UN-pleasant.

2. DC Metro Bus: A biligerent woman yells at the bus driver on the 42 approximately 2pm on a Saturday. He will not let her on free. She pulls off her shirt and pulls down her shorts (basketball jersey outfit thingy) and exposing her naked drugged out body. NOT hot.

I was on the DC metro (green line) this past Saturday at 8:00a when I notice this guy in an untucked white button down shirt paired with black pants and a braided belt. (I was thinking, huh, I haven't seen anyone wear a braided belt since Jay rocked them at UNH in the late 90s.) Anyway, this dude with the braided belt in 2009 was kind of shimmying more than a person typically does when simply walking. After a quick moment I realized that it was not a belt, it was his penis. I couldn't help but do a double take, then look to see if anyone else noticed. It seemed nobody had seen or cared so I went back to reading my book. The dude shimmied to the door and sprinted once his feet hit the platform, I assume to get on the next car in hopes of getting a better reaction.

When I saw this question, I thought to myself "For sure this didn't happen on the 42." Thanks Kate for proving me wrong.

closest i've seen is some underaged hoochies on the redline last winter. it was one of those days where if you leave any skin exposed when you go outside, it will fall off, and there was a group of 18-19 year olds wearing barely anything on a tuesday night, heading to dupont circle at like 11pm for a night out. one was wearing this bubble dress thing that was ridiculously short and then some fishnet tights. we're talking so short that the only thing between her and the seat were her fishnets. but then we all get off the train and i'm going up the escalator behind them and yeah...she's not wearing any underwear. i wanted to ask her if her mother knew she was out in public dressed like a whore and flashing her business in strangers' faces. i don't know what's wrong with kids these days.

I was in Barcelona in Park Guell, walking down a path with a friend I had met the day before in the hostel. We heard someone off the path clear their throat. When we looked to the right to investigate, this extremely short dude with nothing on but bright blue & yellow hightop sneaker was standing there, hands on hips ala Superman, looking extremely pleased with himself. We burst out laughing. Might have been the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. I doubt that was what he was going for...

Does this include the times I've done it personally? Damn...I've said too much again...

I was hoping to never have to reference this memory....

On a bus in Seattle I was sitting on one of the benches that runs lengthwise when I noticed some movement in the first perpendicular bench and looked up to see a homeless woman with her shirt pulled up around her neck performing oral sex on a homeless man. ON A BUS!!!

There were probably about a dozen other people on the bus, all trying hard to pretend that they hadn't noticed.

Have any of you DC folk ever seen the guy in Dupont Circle who wears short shorts and sits with his man parts hanging out trying to make eye contact with anyone within sight? Looks a little like a chubby Gene Hackman? I've seen him there a handful of times...I'd bet he haunts the Metro too.

Back when I worked in NYC, my coworker used to walk up sketchy 8th Ave where all the old peepshow places are in order to get to our building from her bus stop. One morning on her walk to work up 8th Ave, she passed a guy sitting in a doorway without pants, shaving his junk with a pink lady bic razor. She changed up her route after that.
