When Beyonce's song Drunk In Love came out, minds exploded everywhere. What a song! How explicit! It felt like a peek into the bedroom antics of Beyonce and Jay Z. Delightful. But it also made me question the lyrics.
I mean, I know they be all night. And she's drinking. And then they get in the bathtub. And ... well this "Then I fill the tub up halfway then ride it with my surfboard, surfboard, surfboard. Graining on that wood, graining, graining on that wood I'm swerving on that, swerving, swerving on that ...." Oh my goodness. Now Beyonce has us thinking about surfboards again with a curious photo she posted on Instagram.
Thankfully she's not graining (or grinding) on that wood. Just lying there with a gorgeous smile. This is not what she meant in the song. Apparently, "surfboard" is a sex position where the man is lying down on his back and the woman is on top, with a foot on each side of his hips. I don't need to explain more -- you get the idea.
I imagine her and Jay strolling along the beach when they come to this surfboard "parking" area. Jay looks at Bey with a smile. Bey gives him a shy nod. And then Jay dares her to get on one of the surfboards for a pic. She hands him her phone, and here is the beautiful result. It's like a "wish you were here" postcard.
Did you know what "surfboard" meant?
