Oh, joy! In case you thought Maggie Gallagher [or any of the Religious Right] was only concerned with gay people and gay sex, think again. Their sex-obsessed weirdness goes so much deeper than that:
“Anal sex is painful, unsanitary, unsatisfying for women, and creates unique risks for serious physical diseases (if you doubt me, go read the Wikipedia entry on the subject) because the anus is not designed for sexual intercourse, increasing the risk of torn flesh and the intermingling of bodily fluids — blood, semen, fecal matter — that can spread an astonishing variety of diseases. The female partner is far more at risk than the man in these encounters. This should be a feminist issue. But women are doing it to please their boyfriends. Because we have created a sexual culture that empowers young males (even as it stunts their incentives to grow to become successful, confident and happy family men) and disempowers women.”
Next time you see Maggie Gallagher and are tempted to ask what’s up her ass, well, I can tell you what’s NOT.
Anyway, as always with sex of that sort, some straight people like it, some gays do not, etc. Normal people don’t tend to be concerned what other couples are doing in the bedroom, as long as it’s all consensual.
