Lanigan, sure it happens but there is no need to go to a place where your odds of such an activity, or worse, skyrocket. I've worked in that area for years and would never go to that park for any reason. Too many robberies and too much drug activity in that area. There are some pretty unfriendly folk right around there.

I've seen heterosexual couples several times doing "it" in a park. Some people don't want to spring for a motel and don't have enough privacy at home, I suppose.

The phrase "bump-and-grind" has been used since the 40's, to mean a striptease. It's not solely, nor did it originate as, an African American idiom.

edited to add: I know it's pedantic to point that out. I was surprised at the thought that white folks wouldn't know the phrase.

Not saying only black people can say it...but it is PRIMARILY used by black folk.
And to argue that point with me is just INSANE!!!!

moving on.....

about this park. yea it happens. but parks that are well-taken-care of, and nice and manicured, normally doesnt happen because of the type of caliber of folk it attracts.....which are normally located OUTSIDE of the inner city.

Great. Now I'm going to have R. Kelly stuck in my head all day.

OP, Howie Park isn't someplace I'd take my kids. That's a ****ty neighborhood.
