Butt Sex And The City

SUBMITTED BY XORN SMITH: We all have hobbies. Some people collect stamps. Others antiques. Me? I collect mainstream media references to anal sex and (even better) appearances of anal sex in non-porno films and television. Hey, we all need something to keep us busy and off the streets.

Yes, I still remember what I was wearing when I went to see Bridget Jones’ Diary and Renee Zellweger rolled over in bed and told Hugh Grant that what they’d just done was illegal in most countries.

Really, once you take away the films of Tinto Brass, which are pretty much borderline porn anyway, there’s not all that much to tell. Willem Dafoe and Madonna in the horrible Body of Evidence. Marlon Brando and the butter in Last Tango in Paris in a scene that I always found more creepy than erotic. Maybe Buffy and Spike in the balcony at the Bronze, but then it was never firmly established which orifice Spike was entering.

In short, there’s not a whole lot of mainstream anal going on, although things are improving, particularly in the heretofore unchartered realm of pegging. Both Showtime’s Weeds and FX’s Dirt featured fairly explict scenes of guys being done with strap-ons in the past couple of years. Be sure to check the DVDs out at your local Blockbusters.

But, in general, mainstream anal is still in short supply.

Thus, I was shocked — shocked — that I missed one of the most famous anal sex references in all of modern pop culture.

It just so happens my dentist has one of the greatest collections of magazines in his waiting room — if you like pretending it’s 1999. I’m reading a cover story from the August issue of Entertainment Weekly of that year, when they reference the “infamous anal sex” episode of Sex and the City.

What?! I like anal sex. I like Sex and the City. Why had I never heard of this before?

Turns out it was from the fourth episode of the first season, back when they still had those crappy interludes of guys talking to the camera about what they like in women. I never much cared for Season 1 and I guess that’s how I missed it; more’s the pity since the sodomy in question concerned my favorite SATC Girl, Charlotte. (Am I the only one who always thought Kristen Davis was far-and-away hotter than Kim Catrral?)

So as soon as I got home from my semi-annual teeth cleaning, I immediately logged onto YouTube in search of hot Charlotte anal action. Sadly, as this clip reveals, our girl decided against the butt sex.

Now, on the one hand, I applaud Charlotte for not doing something she didn’t want to. But on the other, what I find interesting about her decision — and about the earlier discussion with her friends on anal — is how stygmatized the act still seems. Miranda warns her about the loss of power. Carrie gravely asks if she’s thinking of marrying the guy. Only Samantha, she of the allegedly loose mores, speaks out in favor of it. The whole fact that she’s contemplating — egads!— some backdoor action is treated as a DEFCON 5-national-emergency-situation among the ladies.

At no time is the question of Charlotte’s pleasure ever really a focus of the discussion — among her friends or with her boyfriend. (Although considering that the episode was written by a man, maybe that’s to be expected.) Doesn’t anybody ever ask if Charlotte would have enjoyed a good assfucking? Why does anal have to be something that she “surrenders,” as if it were her chastity and this were the 17th century? For a show that was supposed to be on the cutting edge of sexual enlightenment, it seems to take a pretty back-ass position on anal (pun intended).

But then again, maybe I have a different perspective. After all, I never would’ve even found Boinkology, if I hadn’t discovered this clip while, uh, surfing on YouTube.

    well, sex and the city, so far as i know from having seen about 3 episodes ever, was all about talking about sex, but having the same morals that everyone has already had. i mean, they had a plotline that was all about how carrie had accidentally farted in front of her boyfriend and they were -freaking out- about it. honestly, whenever i saw an ad for that show, and they had these ‘real’ women on who were all, ‘oh my god, that is exactly how i talk’, i wanted to renounce my womanhood. women aren’t like that. and if they are like that, well, they kind of suck.

    i’m glad you bring up the issue of her pleasure though. pleasure is actually really infrequently discussed in television discussions of sex. what is or isn’t pleasurable is either a mystery, or it’s presented as if we all just -know-, because of course, all people find the same things pleasurable, right?

    all that said, if you don’t already have it in your collection, there’s an episode of the soprano’s (another show i’ve only seen a few episodes of) where tony’s sister uses a vibrator in some guy’s ass. it was not explicit, but it was all kinds of awesome. hm, actually, not all kinds, but pretty awesome.

    ISIL: It’s more of a mental index than an actual physical collection if that helps with your codification.

    AL OOF: Yep, Janice & Ralphie.
