  • Sexual Humor and Sexual Innuendo: When is it too much at band rehearsal?

    First off, I'm no prude and I'm not above using adult words and occasional adult and sexual humor at band practices, but when is it too much? We have one guy who will sing dirty lyrics on every song he sings (at rehearsal), continually makes sexually rude comments, jokes, etc. Of course everybody laughs (me too), then other people start and it's a steamroller type thing. We DO get things done despite all the joking around, but to me it gets to be too much after a (very short) while.



    Anyone else?

    If it's just a bunch of guys and no one is offended then it's no big deal, but if you have a female member OR this guy ever pulls that **************** in public it's just a big ****************ing no-no, to say the least.

        What about it gets to be too much for you?

          I've had a couple of bandmates over the years who were like this. The sex part of the equation didn't bug me all that much (as long strictly amongst the guys ... and not behavior that carries over into public). After 4 years of barracks life, 4+ years of college roommates and 15+ years of 3 nights a week adult league hockey lockerrooms - foul language and dirty jokes don't phase me in the least.



          If the bandmate in question is anything like the couple of guys that I've run into - what would bug me is that the guys spent all their energy looking to make the jokes work when everybody else around them were trying to "get stuff done". I'm all for clowning around ... but found the constant clowning to be a distraction.

                A few I've heard over the years:



                To the tune of "Panama": "Padded bra. Padded bra"

                To the tune of "Rocky Top": "Floppy cock, you'll always be - Hung between my knees. Good ole floppy cock. Hung between my knees. Hung between my knees"

                  It's best doing this stuff in an originals group. Everybody chuckling except the songwriter. If I could somehow capture "death stare rays" and turn them into electricity, we could stop digging up the Alberta tar sands.

                    I'm not easily offended, but it's annoying if the jokes are a manifestation of a deep hatred for women, and it's a deal breaker when any ****************ing around, obscene or otherwise, gets in the way of getting the job done at rehearsal.
