I wanted to write a blog post about the 16-year-old girl who jacked me off during a fireworks display back in Vodkaberg in summer of 2001.
Now I was thinking that was on the 4th of July. But then I was wondering, why was there a fireworks display on the 4th of July in Russia in 2001? Were they having a celebration of the American 4th of July, or was it just some kind of coincidence? Or did I misremember the date?
It was summer, anyway.
There were tons of outdoor festivals with fireworks and huge unruly crowds and tons of alcohol in those days.
And tons of 16-year-old girls, I should say.
I would have been 32. She was half my age. That was still legal at that time in Russia. 16 was the age of consent in Russia at that time, by the way. Still is, actually.
But it's really not much of a story. We were standing there, with my 50-year-old female colleage and some other students, and we were all looking up at the fireworks, and the 16-year-old reached back and stuck her hands down my pants and got the old flagpole out.
Nobody noticed. At least I didn't notice anybody noticing.
So, illegal? No. Immoral, probably. She was a student, also.
She was the one referred to as Young Marilyn in the memoir VODKABERG.
She's got two kids and is married to a soccer player now.
Funnily enough, ten years previously, when I was in college in New Orleans, on the 4th of July 1991, when I was 22, I had my second date -- which involved some sexual contact -- with a girl I'd met a few weeks previously.
She'd initially told me she was 18, but then after we watched the fireworks display on the 4th of July, she revealed she was 16.
I don't think that was legal even in Louisiana at that time.
Funny, I remember being concerned about that, at that time.
That girl is married now, too. She's got three children.
