Capture The Flag: Sex For Sport
This could get controversial. But stay with me, folks. First let’s look at the Naughty Nomad’s definition is below take from his website and this article called The Mast Mission that explains plenty more about this subculture.
A ‘Mast Mission’ is to a timed challenge, issued to a traveler, to capture a flag (i.e. have sex with a person from that country). This refers to the native of the country the traveler is visiting. The length of time and the country being visited will determine the difficulty of the mast mission. If you succeed, you raise the flag to the mast, hence the name Mast Mission.
Controversial, yes. Fascinating, very. I am a huge fan of Mark Zolo of Naughty Nomad and while some of his content can tend to be somewhat sketchy - he has always been hugely pleasant and friendly to work with. And, I ultimately think much of his content is written tongue in cheek with the intention to shock and gather attention. Not that is not true - but like any good storyteller - will embellish.
Mark joins the podcast to discuss a subculture that lurks in the underground of almost every backpacking trip I have been on. While I have never partook - (unsure if I wanted to, would I even be successful so much easier to sit on the sideline and judge) I have always been fascinated by this subculture and the overall game. Mark discusses this, him maturing and some pretty traumatic trolling situations that he has found himself in because of his content.
