What straight guys really think about anal sex
I had high hopes for this article:
But in the end was left greatly disappointed, as it perpetuates the same old myths, invents a few new ones and simply does not square with most peoples experiences.
The author (apparently a “sex writer” who has never had anal sex) makes a show of being neutral on the matter of heterosexual anal, but the piece is yet again more anti-anal propaganda.
I also think the men she interviewed for the article (who all come out against anal sex) are complete fabrications.
Take this quote, from “Scott”:
“I really like vaginas. They are just fantastic. I’m not really looking for an alternative,” he says. “When something else comes up, it’s like, what is this shit? That’s not what I came here for.”
This is useful when she wants to suggest there is no real demand for anal sex from straight men:
But among the men I spoke to, the “why is there anal sex in non-anal porn” gripe was common enough that I’m inclined to think that audience is much smaller than most porn directors think.
Her own data (from a recent survey) conflicts with her assertions – Anal sex is more popular than ever, especially among younger people (16-24).
I expect more articles in on this theme as more people discover a preference for anal sex – and expect more authors like EJ Dickson to stand Canute-like, fighting the tide.
But don’t take my word for it, have a read and decide for yourself.
