Teabagging is an activity used within the context of BDSM and male dominance, with a dominant man teabagging his submissive partner as one variation of facesitting and/or as a means of inflicting erotic humiliation.
Teabagging is not always carried out consensually as a sexual act. It has been used during hazing or bullying incidents. Incidents have included reports of groups holding down victims while the perpetrator "shoves his testicles in [their] face" or puts their "crotch to his head."
Mimicking teabagging has become popular in online video games. It is portrayed by the winning player positioning his character over the fallen character's face (while repeatedly crouching and standing) to imply domination or humiliation.
In 2009, Tea Party protests were formed to protest against United States government tax and spending policies. Many of the initial protest organizers themselves used the term "teabaggers" to describe themselves and their movement. Owing to its sexual connotation, the term "Tea Bagger" has been used by several pundits and journalists to ridicule the protesters. Anderson Cooper apologized for using the term.  The term's growth in the political arena earned attention by the Oxford American Dictionary, and the word "teabagger" achieved finalist status for the OAD Word of the Year.
The double meaning of the phrase drew criticism and mockery from MSNBC's David Shuster
who on April 13, accused the protesters of "going nuts for it" and "whip[ping] out the festivities"; wanting to "give President Obama a strong tongue-lashing and lick government spending." He argued that "the people who came up with it are a familiar circle of Republicans including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, both of whom have firm support from right wing financiers and lobbyists." and that "the Fox News Channel, including Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity, both are looking forward to an up close and personal taste of teabagging themselves." He concluded, saying that "If you are planning simultaneous teabagging all around the country, you're going to need a Dick Armey." On April 13, 14, and 15, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow
made similar remarks. On April 14 and 15, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann
made remarks in the same vein, and on April 15, CNN's Anderson Cooper
said "It's hard to talk when you're teabagging."
On the April 16 edition of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart
observed, "So, in our new world order, Fox are the hippies [for promoting anti-government protests] and CNN is The Man. What does that make MSNBC?" He then played a montage of clips of MSNBC anchors using the "teabagging" terminology and concluded, "Hours of scrotum-based humor. Oh my God! MSNBC is us! They're The Daily Show! Well what the fuck am I supposed to do?"
