Is it really appropriate for 5 and 9 year old boys to go round singing "I wanna be your backdoor man"

don't get me wrong, I love Led Zepplin and now so do my boys.

Why not?
Cracking tune.

Come on now.

If you heard a 5, almost 6 year old shouting at the top of his lungs:


wouldn't you be a bit shock

[assuming you know what backdoor man means]

Lauriefairycake Tue 26-Aug-08 19:12:26

I wouldn't, and it's only by re-reading this that I assume there's a gay sexual reference

I wouldn't at all.

KerryMum Tue 26-Aug-08 19:13:17

not gay per se.

women have anal sex as well

Lauriefairycake Tue 26-Aug-08 19:16:09

only said gay because you said boys were singing it

unless you're inferring that they sing it to women with large dildos grin

I wouldn't call myself incredibly naive, but I didn't really pick up on the meaning of that lyric. So kids won't. Wouldn't bother me.

But I was slightly disturbed when dd2 was about 3 or 4 and loads of little girls would jig about singing 'hit me baby one more time'.

KerryMum Tue 26-Aug-08 19:27:50

you goof lfc.

it means the singer wants to give it to a girl up the arse.

pointydog Tue 26-Aug-08 19:29:41

Surely one man could say to another 'I want to be your backdoor man'?

Shitehawk Tue 26-Aug-08 19:30:00

It would only worry me if they were singing it knowing what it meant ...

KerryMum Tue 26-Aug-08 19:31:41

not thinking Robert Plant meant it that way pd.

That's true shitehawk. But OTHER people might not realize they've no idea....

especially, say, if it were in the middle of Tesco.

Lauriefairycake Tue 26-Aug-08 19:33:40

also, not only would I not think of anal I would think it meant

"I want to sneak round to your back door when your dh is out" (actual back door, you know, made of wood or pvc) grin

KerryMum Tue 26-Aug-08 19:35:40

ah well, maybe that's it lfc and I'm just a filthy minded slut!

I would worry, but then I live in brighton

KerryMum Tue 26-Aug-08 21:13:52


clueless here!

stitch Tue 26-Aug-08 21:15:21

well, i didnt understand the meaning until you mnetters pointed it out to me.
my dc are currently singing a song with lyrics that go something like this
'where the girls are easy, and the drugs come cheap'
i dont know what todo. if i make a fuss, they will probly shout it even louder. blush

MrVibrating Tue 26-Aug-08 21:16:59

Yes KerryMum, your last post was right grin

More history of this phrase in song lyrics here.

gigglewitch Tue 26-Aug-08 21:21:39

I don't think i 'get' the, erm, meaning blush

Am mortified than mine heard that atrocious 'right said fred' thing on hols and are hollering "I'm to sexy for <insert 5&7yo vocab> ..."

<<off to google 'backdoor man' although this is possibly unwise>>

MrVibrating Tue 26-Aug-08 21:22:17

Sorry, cross-posted. KerryMum I didn't mean you are clueless.
