T&P Parties (NSFW)

A small envelope of photographs I have from the Sailor Sid Diller collection suffered water damage back in the 1980s- I never heard the full story- and I usually try to crop out the damage before including them on the site. But sometimes I think it adds a well traveled bit of character to present them as scanned.

This photograph features Sid at a ‘T&P Party’ circa approximately 1983. Out of context it’s hard to tell if the gentleman laying down is about to get pierced or if it was just a bit of play, but luckily there were cameras present to document it all.

I love seeing Sid with his septum tusk flipped up like this.
