We all love it.
But in Australia, we don’t wear it.
But here we have a new term for having sex in Australia, and I don’t recommend you walk around with a big icon of that word on your anything (shirt, hat, bag) — least of all your bum!
The big “roots” logo across the back of your pants is a serious ‘no-no’.
Think about that, before you bring your favorite “ROOTS” PE outfit to Australia.
You’d be surprised how often the term comes up.
Everyone loves footy in Australia. While you are getting to know someone, it’s typical that you ask them who their team is.
Except as a Canadian, I found this often came out like this:
“So who are you rooting for?”
And I’d basically just asked this total stranger who they were having sex with, en masse, and with a connotation of the fact that they may or may not be getting paid for it….
Yep, not what I meant at all.
In sum, in Australia, if you are “rooting” someone (or far worse, for someone…) than you are screwing their brains out, getting laid, banging, getting it on.
So be careful. Because we’re a prudish nation and we blush easily.
