Skip to comments.Ass Backwards: The media's silence about rampant anal sex
Posted on 09/21/2005 6:50:39 AM PDT by Callahan
"Oral Sex Prevalent Among Teens," announced Friday's Washington Post. "A federal survey finds more than half of 15- to 19-year-olds have had oral sex," said the subhead in the Los Angeles Times. "Sex Survey Shocker; Concern as most American teens have had oral sex," cried the Boston Herald.
Across the United Statesand beyond itany newspaper that didn't focus on lesbianism in the sex survey (released last week by the National Center for Health Statistics) declared a crisis of oral sex among teens. Experts and journalists, unwilling to express plain old moral dismay at the idea of their kids doing the deed, cited its health risks. "Oral sex has been associated in clinical studies with several infections, including gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes and the human papillomavirus," observed the Post. Teens "have not been given a strong enough message about the health risks of oral sex," an expert warned the Times. "We need to provide them with information about the public-health consequences," another expert told Time.
If only it were that simple. Talking to your kids about oral sex is the easy part. If you're going to be frank about the most dangerous widespread activity revealed in the survey, you're looking at the wrong end of the digestive tract.

Figures the pain-in-the-ass MSM would blame "abstinence-only education" for teenagers acting like porn stars. when the culture is steeped in sex--the more bizarre, apparently, the better. Kids are just copying what they see on the internet and in the Oval Office (thanks Clinton).
President Clinton, the MSM and democrats say the oral sex is not sex.
And the misappraisal of human anture continues.
ANTURE! I get it! LOL!
Raunch culture may be the tipping point for something new and conservative. The libs will be fighting mad all the way when the "kids don't enjoy themselves like in the good old days of free love".
This will be hard for some Democrats to digest.
I'd rather have silence about it than have to look at ~this~ headline. Society is too coarse already.
I really wonder about folk who want to hear more about whatever this is. Voyeurism into the perverse, all the while claiming to be really offended.
You can ignore it, but it won't go away. The "culture war" requires combatants on both sides. And you weren't asked to join--you were drafted.
If you think sex is a pain in the ass your doing it wrong,
I think Opie & Anthony broke this story years ago.
Sadly, it's going on among our youth. To be able to combat it, we need to be aware of it ... regardless of how icky it is.
You bring joy even to typos, Laz. Good to have you back.
To each his own. But I'd guess the increase in anal sex numbers can be directly linked to porn, and the increase in the anal sex fetish that now saturates that industry. Anal sex is glorified in porn. That said, a lot of men have this urge to, well, enter any hole available. Sorry guys, its an exit, not an entrance. Women I know whose hubbies have begged (yes begged) to do this have all replied with, 'you first'. LOL.
Not just the youth hun,
I hear women my age complaining about the man in their lives (husband, boyfriend) being absolutely fixated on it.
Guy on girl anal sex has been standard operating procedure in "mainstream" porn for quite a while.
What couples do behind closed doors is their own business, but this really is indicative of how the prevalence of pornography is affecting taboos.
Ah yes, more media coverage is a good way to reduce the popularity of something. Lets talk about anal sex all the time.
No need to try rewriting history,Bill Clinton,your legacy is.................." I did not have sex with that woman,Monica Lewinsky"
Try putting that genie back in the bottle.
What are they gonna do when their husbands say "Sure"? Porn by nature must get increasingly weird as the old taboos lose their shock value. One day, you will wake up and pedophilia will be "mainstream."
Naaaa,,,the demonrats are used to asssholes...!
