Miss Tahiti 2008, Hinatea Boosie
Perfection from Paradise
Fancy a slurp?
Sailors visiting Polynesia for the first time could not believe their luck when young, naked, Polynesian girls swam out to their ships and happily had sex with the incredulous sailors. In 1778 one report noted of the place: “The great plenty of good and nourishing food, together with fine climate, the beauty and unreserved behavior of their females, invite them powerfully to the enjoyments and pleasures of love. They begin early to abandon themselves to the most libidinous scenes.” This did not go down so well with Christian missionaries and in 1863 the French banned many of the locals' traditional cultural practices; including such horrors as naked bathing, although largely the locals found ways to conveniently avoid these strictures. Of course the sailors were not aware of the structure of Polynesian society in that not all women were so inclined to distribute sexual favours. Those swimming out to boats were outside the tapu system (which definied certain behavioural patterns and characteristics) and had, therefore a low status which could be enhanced by obtaining gifts from the sailors. They were also young and, again, local society allowed more leeway for its younger members. Nevertheless, Polynesia developed a reputation, which it still has today, as a semi-mythical paradise of beautiful, underdressed and willing women.
Hinatea is beutiful and underdressed, certainly.
