The Donkey Show in Tijuana

"Kinsee and the Tijuana Donkey" by Derrik Chinn

The Donkey Show, to my knowledge, is probably something that happened a few times in Tijuana during its heyday, but has since stopped happening.  For those who don’t know, The Donkey Show is a live sex show between a donkey and a woman.

A few weeks ago, I put on my own little Donkey Show on Revolucion Avenue in Tijuana.  And no, I didn’t have sex with the spray-painted donkey, I simply ran over and asked the man if I could hang out with the little fellow for a minute.

I love the Tijuana “zebras” because they show how, in Tijuana, people capitalize however, where ever and whenever they can. I can’t help but think that when the United States starts to really truly feel the effects of this economic crisis, we won’t laugh so easily at the Mexicans and mock them for all the silly ways they come up with to make a quick dollar.
