I love Carnival!!. Trinidad's carnival! Once a year my senses rejoice at the opportunity to douse my soul with intoxicating soca music, shed my cares and fears, and temporarily transfer my spirit into the mas. (S. Drakes)

The theory of the carnival baby

The phenomenon of the “Carnival baby,” a child conceived at Carnival time, is supposed to put a significant bump in Trinidad’s birth-rate in November, nine months after Carnival. Is this true?? Does sexual activity increase during the carnival season?. I agree that street dancing is hard to distinguish from sexual intercourse (aside from the lack of penetration) but does that lead people to actually commit the act?

Now I personally have never been driven to have extra sexual activity during carnival, actually I think I have less. When I get home from carnival days or when I attend a fete, the only thing I think about is getting into my bed and sleeping. Do you think that your sexual activity is heightened during the carnival period? Do you think that there could be another factor affecting this increase in births around this time, Valentines Day maybe?

valentines might be a good alternative theory...but there must be something to it, ah mean ALL stereotypes or sayings have SOME truth to it. maybe when they done making all the birth papers electronic instead of writing it in them big-ass binders, we could do some objective research LOL

Saucy like you saucy for real...;-)

Kevian not lapsing nah. You gone straight back into debating the issues surrounding carnival. Kudos to you.

I personally don't believe the hype. Even if the sexual activity is there, as far as couples go they should be having sex in the same way they'd have sex all year round which is with protection.

But if I do find out that I'm pregnant next March I'll let you know. just kidding.

So then would u say is de alcohol that leads to extra sexual behaviour? Maybe with the alcohol in their heads they forget the protection? Or maybe those who don't usually use protection make "cordination" mistakes..lol?

'co-ordination mistakes' LOL I have to make note of that one.

I'm sure that the combination of alcohol & grinding up on your bf/gf or some real nice stranger has its effects but its not like that is some out of the blue situation when you live in Trinidad.

I thought about how many people in Trini I know born in Nov, I have to say it isn't an outstanding amt.

Well girl i read some document from the registratar of births department in trini and they stated that most births do occur more between the november to the december period in trinidad.

Probably because my bf doesn't have the slightest interest in mas or feteing, I probably don't know about a combination of alcohol & grinding up on your bf/gf or some real nice stranger making u feel horny.

Plus I don't stay dancing with one person for long dies why I probably can't identify as well.
