Overview

Tea-bagging is primarily used to make one's death a more humiliating experience and provoking the other player. This action is most commonly performed in video games found within the first-person shooter genre; however, every game that has a crouch button and dead bodies is susceptible to this phenomenon. Tea-bagging is but one of the ways that the online first-person shooter community is forming a more juvenile identity in comparison with the other genres of video games.

Steps on how to tea-bag properly:

  1. Kill opponent (this step is not necessary if your desired target is already dead)
  2. Move up to your victim's corpse
  3. Stand on top of said corpse
  4. Crouch and stand repeatedly, alternating, while being located directly over the corpse

Now, you don't always have to move over a dead player's body if the game has a kill-cam. Sometimes, the players will just tea-bag the ground from where they are standing instead of actually moving over the other player's dead body. This is commonly seen in Red Faction: Guerrilla.

In Pop Culture

Season 20, episode 19 of The Simpsons depicts Homer and Marge tea-bagging a corpse in what appears to be Halo 2.

The Female Counter Part

Considering that there are more girls who are participating in these games, they can't go in and say "Tea-Bag" a random corpse. A few girls have gone around saying things such as "Lip Stamp" when they find a dead body or "Muffler" when they want to 'silence' them. The one you'll hear, though, depends on their, erm, 'preference.'
