black bamboo
 n.— «The lure of the “black bamboo,” a cheeky phrase which can’t be further explained in a family newspaper, has become a big draw for British women seeking more than just a tan in this popular tourist resort. Bristling with sex day and night, this is no Club 18-30 for drunken teenagers, but a paradise where middle-aged mums, wives and even grans give in to the temptation of muscular young men, many with rasta-style dreadlocks.» —“ Sun, Sea & ‘Black Bamboo’” by Sharon Van Geuns in Negril Beach, Jamaica Sunda Mirror (United Kingdom) Aug. 6, 2006.
