I went to one with my ex. Definitely the upper crust of the city. It was pretty boring. Speeches, introduction of debutantes, dinner, dancing.

I've never been to one, but there are all different debutante balls now. Anyone can throw one, and there are plenty of debutante balls thrown by people who are most definitely not the social or cultural elite. What was once perhaps a rite of Southern upper-crust passage has now been claimed by the many. Can't say I give a crap. The whole thing looks silly to me. Though certainly the deb ball profiled in the article sounds like big money.

I was a backup escort for a client's daughter. I would've liked to have experienced it (I love Southern tradition), but the original choice for escort pulled through at the last minute and was able to make it.

Good, because I had nothing to wear.

I've been to probably a dozen in St. Pete, almost every year since my senior year of high school. Always had a great time, one of the highlights of the year. Minimal speeches and some introductions. But, dinner, drinks, and dancing with tons of hot rich girls has always appealed to me. I guess I'm just crazy.

I went to a bunch my senior year in high school. The parties were ok, but the sex and drugs were great.

I went to a few with my ex in Atlanta. As mentioned before, its not like its high society anymore. While these folks were all well enough to do, it was basically the country club set, not the upper crust.

I'd let a debutante lick my balls.

It's a good reason to have a tailcoat.

And that is more than enough reason to keep them around.

Thanks for the recommendation, however my girlfriend is allergic to cats, I may just have to have her do it more often.

Your raw untamed heterosexuality amazes me.
