Life on the coast


I have no doubt there are plenty of well meaning, respectable people living on the coastal strip. However, it seems that amongst them, there are some whose morals don’t coincide with ours. For these individuals, anything goes even if it oversteps the bounds of common decency by a mile or more.

On Friday 15th, the ninth edition of the Motero Lunch organised by Moto Club 12+1 took place at Pilar de la Horadada. It is apparently a traditional event during autumn organised with the blessing of the council as part of the local fiesta to honour the Virgen del Pilar. There was even an official poster advertising it.

The two girls that had been booked were apparently performing their routines throughout the morning. This was to be the culminating act where they invited members of the audience to participate with them in what turned out to be a highly explicit sex show lasting 25 minutes.

Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t disapprove of striptease per se. This, however was obviously something quite different as you can see from the photographs. If it had taken place in a private club attended only by adults, it would have been OK; what people get up to in private is up to them. However, at this biker’s lunch, children as young as 4 and 5 were allowed in to watch the sordid spectacle free of charge and imagenobody in the 3,000 strong audience seemed to care that they were sat right at the front. I imagine that was  probably because most of the people there were fuelled up on beer. 

If you remember, Torrevieja hosted a drag queen night as part of their carnival in February. That might have raised a few eyebrows at the time but surely comes nowhere near this latest event. 

If this is what they get up to in places like Pilar de la Horadada, I’m glad we live in civilised Bigastro where fiestas are something that people of all ages can enjoy without being mortally offended. 

How the man in the photograph can look anyone respectable in the eye ever again, especially the relatives of those young children, is beyond me.
