Hi there! Well thank you so much for the kind words. We appreciate it! :D In regard to your question, we’ve actually been asked that before, on several occasions. Remember that you can always check our #monkeesexual post tag or our Monkeesexual Compilation Posts to see which questions we’ve been asked previously. However, we will go ahead and repost our answers here for you now:
Davy: Mostly monosyllabic. Lots of grunting, maybe some panting. We don’t see Davy being particularly loud, but not totally silent, either. We can, however, possibly see him letting out a “Yippee!” like in Too Many Girls (Fern & Davy)…or, well, since that one anecdote that we posted…”Here we cum…”
Micky: Nonstop jabbering interspersed with primitive grunting. We think Micky literally would not be able to shut up, and would broadcast an ongoing stream of dirty talk. Though if his partner wanted him to be quiet, he might actually oblige her request and not say a word the entire time. His groans, however, would most likely escalate in frequency and volume the closer he got to climax, and then he’d get loud as all hell.
Peter: Peter would be the moaniest of the bunch, by far. We feel his noises would be all over the map, however, too…loud groans followed by dirty little whispers, moans rising into guttural screams, and everything in between. So he definitely wouldn’t stick to any one noise all the time—you’d just get a big ol’ grab bag o’ nookie noises.
Mike: We think Mike would be the quietest Monkee in bed—quiet to the point of wondering whether he’s actually enjoying himself. But if spurred on properly, we can see Mike making a few grunting noises of varying levels of enthusiasm. When Mike has an orgasm, of course, there is the possibility that he might revert to one of his Texan-isms, such as a half-choked “Holymotheragod!” or somesuch.
I really don’t get Monkees fans who are in as much denial of the Monkees’ mortality than the ones who believe the boys never smoked or cursed, etc. People that get mad when you talk about genetics for Davy’s death instead of just echoing something about angels. People that don’t want to acknowledge Mike’s eye surgery when they complain about him using a tablet or not wanting a flash to go off directly in his face. People who complain about Peters limited song choices despite following tongue cancer surgery. Do other fandoms have problems like this one?
A theory: The idea of the Monkees’ mortality is as threatening to these fans as the smoking/cursing/partying/etc. because it poses a threat to that same brush of “innocence”/”perfection” with which these fans paint them. We’ve said previously how a lot of the older fans tend to view the Monkees as flawless deities, and when things such as Davy’s bad genetics or Mike’s bad eyes or Peter’s tongue issues are pointed out, it makes them into actual human beings, instead of gods.
These fans don’t want to think there is a very human reason for why Davy died (and Davy’s father and mother both died young, so genetics undoubtedly did play a role), or a very human reason for why Mike is still reticent about certain aspects of the celebrity limelight. They want to see it as something above, something beyond mere mortality, because to so many of these fans, in their minds, the Monkees have not aged like everyone else but instead still exist as robust, invincible 20somethings on a television show.
Also, it may very well be that these Monkees fans fear the Monkees’ mortality because it makes them think of their own mortality. “Well, if Davy Jones can have a heart attack, that means I could, too!” or “If Peter Tork can get cancer, who’s to say I won’t?” and so on. If the Monkees have aged, these fans then have to acknowledge that they have as well, and that is clearly not something that many of them want to do.
So those are a few of our thoughts on why some of these fans behave this way. None of this excuses their behavior, of course, and we believe and will always believe that casting aside the Monkees’ flaws not only takes away what makes them so interesting, but inhibits their ability to simply be human beings, which is exactly what they are.
Trying to determine the exact moment when Micky Dolenz’s hair went from “Attractive, Well-Maintained White Boy ‘Fro”:
…to “Finger Stuck in An Electrical Socket Chic”:
- He’s a kickass singer
- He’s the most down-to-earth of all the Monkees
- He’s generous
- He knows when to be professional
- He makes ridiculous, off-color remarks that would be weird coming from anyone else but that are hilarious and endearing coming from him
- His nickname for Peter is “The Torkmeister”
- His 45+ year bromance with Mike Nesmith
- The fact that he is the “glue” that holds the Monkees together because he’s the only one that gets along with everyone.
- Underneath the rock n’ roll exterior, he’s still a big science nerd who carries around copies of Scientific American.
- He’s single-handedly responsible for keeping the fedora industry in business, come on.
- He is just awesome in general and makes you feel at ease whenever you’re around him.
