Other than being the Pi Day, the 3.14 mathematical constant “π”, March 14 is also a celebration of love which comes exactly a month after Valentine’s Day.
In the Asian context, March 14 is widely deemed as the White Day where women would give presents, commonly white chocolates or other white confectionaries such as marshmallows, to men they are romantically involved with or have a crush on, Forbes and The Culture Trip reported. Often time, it is also considered a day for the women to respond to the men after the latter had displayed their love to them on Valentine’s Day.
However, in the Western context, it is much simpler. It is a day for women to give a favour back to their lovers after the men have showered chocolates, flowers and other gifts on them a month ago. March 14 is not a commercialized celebration that requires more gifts but it is simply a meal of steak and fellatio − thus the name Steak and Blowjob Day.
The satirical celebration originated in the United States and many believe that it was invented by radio DJ Tom Birdsey when he was on the WFNX show in Boston, Massachusetts, Daily Mail reported.
The day is also called as Steak and Knobber Day and its official website highlighted that it is a day for women to “repay the favour”. On the website, it wrote:
You know the drill. Every 14th of February men get the chance to display their fondness for a significant other by showering them with gifts, flowers, dinner, and many other romantic baubles. They rack their brains for that one special gift that will show their spouse that they truly care.
Well here’s a little secret: men feel a tad left out. They’re just too proud or too embarrassed to admit it.
March 14th henceforth became “Steak and Blowjob Day.” Simple, effective and self-explanatory. No cards, no flowers, no special nights on the town; the name explains it all: just a steak and a BJ. That’s it.
The website features videos of how to cook a steak as well as not so gracious SFW (safe for work) how to give a blowjob vidoes. The celebration suggests that it is not a “soulless, capitalist creation to seek extra cash from consumers” like Valentine’s Day but a satisfaction that men want through the mouth and phallus.
However, it does succumb women into the traditional feminine role of cooking and kneeling when performing fellatio. In counterargument, men also suffer similar social pressure on Valentine’s Day which is to be the patriarchal provider.
Besides, the celebration also brings awareness to breast cancer which the site describes the illness as a “major suck balls”. If you use their platform to send a “Steak and BJ Day” invite, you will be prompted to donate to a charity to fight breast cancer. More about it here.
So, would you celebrate Steak and BJ Day? Do remember that oral sex is illegal under Malaysia’s Law. Section 377A of the Penal Code that states “the introduction of the penis into the anus or mouth of the other person is said to commit carnal intercourse against the order of nature” is an offence punishable up to 20 years of imprisonment, fine and whipping.
