Though there are various items that share the banana hammock name, these items do not necessarily match the true definition of the word. Below is are three definitions for the banana hammock.
Banana Hammock Definition
The word Banana Hammock is a slang word for a men style g-string bathing suit or underwear. The g-string gets the banana hammock name due to the fit around the male genitals. Essentially the g-string mimics a banana resting in a hammock; hence the name banana hammock. These types of g-string underwear garments are typically worn by male exotic dancers. In addition to the “g-string” term, the picture on the left is a man in a Speedo type bathing suit which would also be considered a banana hammock.
The word Banana Hammock can also be a word for a specific type of hammock that
looks like the shape of a banana. Unlike many of today’s traditional hammocks that are flat, the banana hammock tends to wrap around the body of the individual in the hammock. These hammocks are quite comfortable. There is one banana hammock maker in Canada that hand makes every one of their banana hammocks. You can essentially the hammock in any location. The company is called Banana Hammock Republic. There are plenty of great photos of people using their hammocks in various and crazy locations on the main page of their website. It makes the Joe’s Banana Hammock team jealous. We are going to have to buy one to add it to our collection. One really great thing that the Banana Hammock Republic is doing is selling one particular hammock at a discounted price. When you purchase this particular hammock, the money received is used to make two additional hammocks for the homeless. Our hats go off to the BHR company.
A fruit hammock is also another item that has been named a banana hammock. The naming is likely due to the picture containing banana in the hammock. The hammocks appear to be well made. I would also have to believe that the hammock would be quite the talking piece in any kitchen.
