College is a time to learn about yourself. You get to pick a major (then change it three more times before you pick something pointless, like English which leads you to a life of more school and no job). You get to choose extracurricular activities like Greek life or whatever people who don’t go Greek do. And you get to ~experiment sexually~.
It’s in the movies and it’s in the erotic fiction we read when we take baths: college is the time to learn what you like in bed. And in some random guy’s bed. And in the back of a bus on the way to formal. So it should come to no surprise that this is when people are learning about themselves. They buy fuzzy handcuffs. They order some lube off of Amazon and avoid eye-contact with the delivery guy. And according to a study, they’re trying #buttstuff.
Anal. Backdoor loving. “Greek sex.” A poke in the brown hole. Whatever you want to call it, your roommate, your best friend, and your big are all probably doing it.
The study polled roughly 10,400 straight women between the ages of 15 and 44. It found that women of all ages, ethnicities, and cultural backgrounds engage in anal sex (but “it was more common among those who were either married to or cohabiting with their partners.”): Roughly 36 percent of the women polled had tried it in their lifetimes, and roughly 13 percent had tried within the last 12 months of the survey.
That’s right. It turns out a lot of ladies are taking it in the backdoor, but the catch? They’re doing it with a committed guy. The study went on to say that less people used condoms with anal than they did with vaginal sex which says a few things:
1. People are more concerned about getting pregnant than they are getting diseases (can’t totally argue their perspective).
2. Girls might just be using anal to their advantage.
The study says more women are trying it, but that’s not what I see. I see a whole bunch of boss bitches using their asses to their advantage. I mean, there’s a direct correlation to anal and living with, if not marrying a guy. Once upon a time we thought the key to getting him on his knees was to get on ours, but now? That might not be the case. Maybe the secret is getting on all fours and using that lube we ordered on our anuses.
I’m not saying that trying anal is the secret to getting a big house and an even bigger bank account. But then again I’m not not saying it. Some might call it manipulation, I call it economics..
