Last week, Huffington Post Live brought on sex advice columnists from college campuses across the country to discuss what is apparently the latest fad at university. Move over binge drinking and MDMA, because college kids now are all about anal sex (which—admittedly—is probably often done after engaging in binge drinking and taking MDMA).
HuffPo interviewed Abigail Student (HER NAME IS STUDENT!) of Washington State University; Indigo Trigg-Hauger of the University of Washington; and Nicha Ratana-Apiromyakij of Brown (Ha! Brown. Butt Sex. Get it?) to hear their thoughts on whether ass play had been normalized among students in college.
(Unrelated: no college student should ever be giving sex advice, even if it’s just to their peers. Why? Keep reading.)
“Modern men and women have gone off the beaten path by moving their entry point two inches south from that of their forefathers,” said Student.
Right. No one older than you had ever thought of butt sex. Nor tried it. Invented about four months ago by a curious Millennial boy and girl. Student then quoted Frost. Robert Frost, using his most clichéd metaphor to talk about shoving your dick up someone’s ass.
Trigg-Hauger claimed the same, saying she gets multiple questions a month about people’s anal cavities for her sex advice column. Multiple! That’s like, more than one… at a school whose enrollment is 43,000 people.
Ratana-Apiromyakij, of Brown, is much more confident about anal sex’s occurrence on the East Coast.
I’m pretty sure anal sex happens on our campus.
Yes, pretty sure. I am too. Pretty. Not certain, but highly confident. She also had this profound advice.
As long as both parties are consenting, that’s a good thing.
Because otherwise it’s rape, which is a bad thing, regardless of what hole it occurs in. Strong words here from our college sex advice columnists, but is anal sex all the rage?
No. For one thing, it’s not that great, or else everyone would be doing it all the time. What’s more than likely happening is that people are entering long-term relationships when not living at home for the first time. That lends itself to more frequent sex. Frequent sex lends itself to experimentation. Thus, trying anal sex.
It’s not a pandemic, this process has been going on forever. I tried anal sex in college. A decade ago. But if I could do it all over again, I’d stick to drinking and ecstasy. They require fewer sanitary wipes.
Like I said, never listen to college-aged sex advice columnists. Ever.
