(Sorry I’m only now getting to this)
I post loads of Micky because he’s my favourite, but I also post about Mike and Davy quite a lot too.
I don’t post about Peter as much because I don’t (and can’t) connect to him like I do the others. I have no problem with Peter and I don’t dislike him in the slightest, but when I first got into the Monkees I made an effort to watch loads of interviews with them and get to know each of them. From day one Peter has made me feel seriously uncomfortable when I see interviews with him (from back in the day and more recently). I know I’m not the only person who feels this way either, as I’ve spoken about this privately with people before. He has this nervous energy and comes across as childlike, awkward and weird, and it seems like he’s trying way too hard to play up to the cameras. The reason that makes *me* feel so uncomfortable is because *he* doesn’t seem comfortable either. I don’t know if he’s like this in interviews on his own because I haven’t really watched any solo-Peter interviews, but in group interviews the other guys seem less than impressed with him too, and the whole vibe is just off.
I’ve heard so many stories about Peter from people who’ve met him, and about 8/10 of those stories are really positive. I’m sure he’s lovely in person and totally different when the cameras aren’t rolling. I prefer show-Peter, and I think real-Peter did an amazing job with a character that was almost totally different from his real-self.
But that’s why you don’t see me post about him more. He was a gorgeous guy when he was young (and he still looks great for his age!) and while he isn’t a great singer and I don’t enjoy his voice I also respect that he was (and is) a seriously great musician (I love him playing the banjo!). I have no beef with Peter, he just isn’t for me. And I *do* post about him, just not as much as the other guys.
You are definitely not alone on this, sister. The unfortunate thing when it comes to Peter is that the adorable, sweet, laid-back blond hippie that he once was is very much not who he is now. That is not to say that he isn’t grateful for his fans, but there is an attitude and an air about him that—as you said—makes it difficult to connect with him. Nevermind that he absolutely should never do interviews, at least not TV ones (lest we forget the Rachel Maddow fiasco of 2012—just two days after Davy died, mind you). And of course, every story of meeting Peter is different, as he does have good days and bad days like anyone, but the distinction between him and, let’s say Micky, is that Micky will not take his bad day out on a fan…but Peter will. It just seems like age and time have hardened Peter in many ways (which is in sharp contrast to Nez, who has so completely mellowed the fuck out as he’s gotten older that you’d think he’s constantly medicated). Just our $0.02 on the matter.
Hi there! No, Peter is not, in fact, playing the harp in The Devil and Peter Tork. He makes mention of it in the audio commentary on the episode, that he “lip synced” his fingers, that “it was all imitations of Harpo Marx, I promise,” and that “I did not and still do not to this day know how to play the harp.”
…Not bad for a long-haired weirdo, eh?
Hi there! Well, we’ve actually been asked this question previously, so we’ll go ahead and repost our answers for you. (And remember, you can always check out our Monkeesexual Compilation Posts and/or our #ask np tag to see if your query’s already been asked/answered!)
Davy: Davy loves being at the same height as a vagina. He enjoys a tall girl, so that he can stand between her legs and look up like he’s scaling a mountain. She doesn’t even have to talk in complete sentences or know what day of the week it is…just give that Midget a tower of legs to climb, and he’s happy as a clam.
Micky: Micky likes blondes. And also blondes. In the words of someone who knows what’s what: “If it’s young and blonde, Micky want to penetrate it.” Micky also likes to be able to make a girl laugh, and it helps greatly if her top happens to fall open while that is happening. The quickest way to a woman’s heart is through her areolas, don’tcha know.
Peter: Peter enjoys someone with whom he can have philosophical discussions, but he also enjoys doing this naked, and baked as a cake. He also likes being baked and naked WHILE baking a cake, but that’s another story. Peter is not opposed to an empty-headed bimbo, as long as her mouth is full (you can guess what we mean by that). Also, boobies. Peter is fond of the boobies—in any size, shape, whatever, just as long as they are there.
Mike: Nez likes blondes with an intellectual side, and it also helps if you’re fertile. He likes to procreate, is what we’re saying, and his super Nezsperm can and will probably get you pregnant just from him looking at you. He also likes a woman who can cook chili in the nude. While quoting Proust. Backward. In Iambic pentameter.
Yes indeed, this question has been asked several times before (it seems to be a favorite among Monkees fans, including you, as we found a previous question asked by you in our #kinky is as kinky does tag!). So we’ll repost our answers here:
Davy: Davy would probably be the least likely to have a kinky fetish. For him, “kinky” is a one-time event of having sex somewhere that isn’t the bedroom—like in a car while driving (would that we were making this up: Jessica actually mentions it during their Newlywed Game appearance). An event such as this allows him the room to show off his sexual prowess, which we think he would want to do, to bolster his confidence as a lover. But it’s likely that Davy’s somewhat reserved nature would leave him a bit too uptight anything deeply kinky.
Micky: Roleplaying is somehow always the first thing that comes to mind when we think of Micky. Perhaps it’s his background as an actor, but we can see Micky as really loving anything in the bedroom with outfits or costumes. The kinky twist might be that, instead of the traditional roles, Micky would want to be in the “feminine” role—not necessarily dressing up like a girl, but being vulnerable, being open to being tied up and left at her mercy, and having her be the one to seduce him, instead of vice-versa. We think that would satisfy some craving to be dominated that he has in his psyche, but still allow him to maintain some degree of control.
Peter: It’s almost impossible to say what Peter’s kinky fetish is, because we think it changes by the week. What gets him hot and boiling one day might be something completely different to what does it the next. Hot wax, handcuffs, spanking, voyeurism, public sex—it’s very likely that all of these have been kinks of his at one time or another, and that he has fulfilled them. Peter we think would be willing to explore kink most deeply—see, for example, a fic on our site called A Night at the Nutcracker, which, while a show-based fic, depicts Peter as the instigator for bringing the guys to a kinky sex club. We think Peter is probably the Monkee most likely to “try anything once”—twice, if he really likes it—and so his kinky fetish would simply be the exploration of multiple fetishes and seeing how many he could get his partner to try.
Mike: Mike and kinky have an unusual relationship. Of all the Monkees, Mike is probably the one to keep his fetishes and fantasies firmly locked inside his head. Life itself is the kinky fetish for Mike—watching the way a situation or encounter plays itself out. Mike would be most likely to enact his seduction mentally, so the kinky part would be to involve someone without them actually knowing it. He’d play mind games and then observe the effects of them on the other person, both physically and psychologically, and this would be the source of his enjoyment. In all likelihood, however, Mike would probably be more comfortable fulfilling someone else’s kinky fetishes than acting out his own.
…So there you have it, folks! And for those who may not know, we have gone ahead and compiled all of the Monkeesexual questions that we’ve been asked over the years into not one…not two…but THREE compilation posts, so you can read over all the deliciously dirty queries that have come (pun somewhat intended) our way and our answers to them. Links to all three compilation posts can be found right on our Tumblr page, HERE. Enjoy!
Okay, Micky is adorable here - but seriously… what is Peter thinking about? He looks totally lost in thought…
Peter: *thinking* But…how do they get the pimiento in the olive? Mmm…olives. Olive Oyl’s kind of hot. I wonder if she and Popeye ever got it on…
Peter is wondering what on earth is so funny!
Their couple-yness is just ridiculous…
