The Booty Trap
This morning, when my Michigan / OSU weekend hangover finally went away, I came downstairs and found my roommates laying around the living room drinking coffee and sharing stories from their weekend escapades. Note: any normal person would assume we all would know these stories since we spent the weekend together, but it was Michigan / OSU weekend…. Without my digital camera I would have no idea what happened.
It turns out that, while in bed, my roommate’s boyfriend, drunk as a skunk (yes, I just used that phrase) made an interesting request. Anal sex.
Now, this topic may not be as taboo as it used to – perhaps we can thank Brokeback Mountain for that? – but it is still a topic I would rather leave to the porn stars than bring into my bedroom. In fact, I am constantly wondering why so many guys make the request to begin with. I get that it may feel “better.” I also can see how it will really spice up a boring sex life (to which I must respond, “So will doing it in the shower.”).
But after asking around, I confirmed my suspicions as to the real reason: the story…
Just like my roommates, guys like to sit around and compare their latest sexcapades with their friends. It seems that since anal sex is still rather kinky (or NOT HAPPENING, depending on who you are), the impressive factor is about as high as it can get. Unless, I suppose, if some dude’s lady lets him invite all her friends over for an orgy.
The point is, most guys don’t want to try the rear to “bring you closer together” or “take the relationship to the next step.” They do it because they want their friends to ooh, ahh and get jealous of the fact that they convinced their girlfriends to do it porn-style. Bonus if they also convinced you to tape the whole thing…. Which they will probably also show their friends.
Hopefully, knowing this, my roommate will opt out again in the future. Especially because her boyfriend is her brother’s best friend.
