My coworker's boyfriend's brother is a Marine. :rolleyes: She relayed the following tale to me. In Vietnam (and other Asian countries) brothels offered a service where a prostitute was placed in a special basket with a hole in it. The basket was then raised to the ceiling and spun so the cords wound up. Then a naked Marine would lie under it. After he got hard the basket was spun and lowered. He then fucked her through the whole as she was spining (or rather lied there and let the spinning do the work). Is any of this crap actually true? :dubious: It sounds more painful (& not in a good way) than pleasurable.

As they say, "If somebody can think it up, then someone has tried it." Beyond that, the veracity of a claim that it was a common practice in Asia . . . I don't know and am not very interested in researching the project. I'll leave it to someone else.

Er, what? According to this website (http://www.kansainow.com/love.shtml) it exists in Thailand... but I have never heard of this practice before. It sounds like an urban legend. I suppose it could be true - I don't pretend to be intimate with all the odd sex practices in Asia - but I was brought up in Korea and this is the first I've heard of such a thing.

I saw this soft-core porno called Kama Sutra or something where an Indian girl twists herself up with ceiling-hung scarves Cirque de Soleil style and then untwists over her partner. Probably not the best position ever, but a unique way to kick things off.

Here's a site that seems to sell a functional equivalent. Not really as quaint as a basket, but I can imagine it working in the same fashion. On sale now for $199! Perfect for that difficult to buy for relative.

I know they exist so I did a google on Sex Baskets and came up with this (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2005/09/050921082724.htm) (safe for work)
:smack: Not quite what I was looking for.
Try a google on sex swings, and you will get some ideas.

I have heard that called the "Chinese basket trick".

I should be clearer - I am not doubting the existence of the practice itself; just the fact that it originated somewhere in Asia.

Actually the adjective "Chinese" often doesn't mean "from china" but rather"strange and unusual." So "Chinese basket trick" never claims it actually comes from china, but it might've been what the op mangled as "asian basket trick"

I'm still trying to figure out why you have the "rolls eyes" icon following this sentence.

And yes, I've heard of these chairs but just word of mouth.

I heard about it 24 years ago while I was in the army, from an NCO who had been a private stationed in Viet Nam during the late 60's or early 70's. He said it was a swing, and in a brothel in Thailand while on R&R.

Because I heard it from someone heard it from someone who heard it from someone who heard etc etc.

A friend of mine in the Navy brought one of these baskets home from the Phillipines for his wife. They tried it. The results were more humorous than erotic, at least from their retelling.

I've never heard it associated with any specific ethnicity, it was just called a basket fuck. But the only place I ever heard it associated with was the Phillipines in the late '70's. And it was available there for not too many pesos. Or so I was told, I never tried it myself.

hehe. I have a sky chair (http://www.skychairs.com/) hanging in my living room, and another on my back porch. They are veeeery comfortable. The only down side is that when people first see them, they assume. . .

(not that there is anything wrong with that)

I guess in some circumstances it might be a refreshing alternative to the fruit basket or the muffin basket.

I actually have a buddy that we all refer to now as Taiwan Basket because of his enthusiastic account of having heard of the same thing as the OP, excepting of course that he called it a Taiwan Basket.

I think I first read the story in a Penthouse letter back in the 1970's, I've heard them called "spin-f**k chairs". I think Dennis Miller has made reference to them, but then again, what hasn't he referenced?

Over the years I've probably heard this from a half dozen or so veterans. Also about a drinking game involving a girl under the table, based on trying to guess who she was servicing.

So how is the basket not whacking him in the head and other body parts while it's spinning? is his dick that huge?

I heard of a lot of interesting things in Thailand, even saw a few, but never that. I'm sure it exists somewhere, and may even be interesting as a novelty item, but I think I'll pass on this one myself.

Thirty-five years ago or so I heard this described as a French basket (or some such). I think the name changes depending on who the person who describes this wishes to insult at the time.

I first heard about this in the early 60's, and many times since, and the most common name is "Chinese Basket Fuck". The object was described as a basket with no bottom attached to the ceiling with cords, pulleys, and gimbals. It took a team of three women. One woman would get in the basket and compose herself so as to be "dead center". The customer would lie supine on the floor. The remaining two women would stimulate the customer into a fully erect state, lower the basket carefully to full penetration, then spin the basket.

My reaction to this story (after the initial "wow" wore off) was "How do they keep her centered?" If she starts to spin off-center, "wow" would quickly become OW!, don't you think?

Of course, it was also a widely-believed story in the 60's that female Viet Cong, posing as prostitutes, would put razor blades in their vaginas to maim unwary G.I.'s, so who knows?

Paging Siam Sam.

I'll be in Phuket wed-fri so I guess I can ask around. We're all good married guys on the trip so I won't have a first hand account. That said, one of my old bosses did do this in Thailand and said it was a good experience. He only tried it once, whatever conclusions you'd want to draw from that. Most guys I know reportedly go for the full body massage. YMMV

It most certainly does NOT exist in Thailand, NOR have I seen or heard of it anywhere else in Southeast, East OR South Asia. I did hear of this stateside during the Vietnam War era, though, but this is the first I've heard of it in all those years since then. It's an Urban Legend, you can bet good money on that.

Your old boss was pulling your leg. Believe me, if this ever existed, *I* would know about it.

But have a good time in Phuket. This is a good time of year, what with it being the cool season and no rain in most parts now. But watch out for those tsunamis!

I herd about this before, but mainly as a midwestern sort of thing. Almost the same as other posters, except to for a small detail: to get the basket spinning, you need to tip over a cow so it bumps into her legs.

Just in case you're wondering, it's pronounced "poo-get." But I have heard a story, possibly apocryphal, that New York City denied a restaurant license for a Thai restaurant wanting to call itself Phuket, because the city thought it was pronounced, um, differently. :D
