Bend the Boyfriends Over
|At a recent product meeting at the Stockroom (Yes, we do have meetings- we don’t just run around trying out sex toy products all day!) I was curious about the sales of the amazing Feeldoe - a delicious double-headed dildo that can be used without a strap-on. It’s one of our top sellers. I asked, oh so innocently, “Do we have that many lesbians buying this?” I was answered very enthusiastically, “It’s mostly straight couples buying it! Everyone wants to bend over their boyfriend.” How bad ass is that? (No pun intended!) My heart swelled with love as I pictured all these gals all over the country making their male counterpart take it up his hungry pink pucker. I am terribly excited about this trend for many reasons:|
A. It’s a loving tribute to the phrase, “Turnabout is fair play.” Having been on both ends of the… ahem… stick, I can confidently say that it is a revelation being the Penetrator after enjoying for years the sensation of being the Penetrated. No one can deny that penetrating is a powerful feeling. Why should all the straight girls of the world miss out? And there is nothing like making your lover wait with breathless anticipation while you buckle on a mighty strap-on and choose just the right dildo for the job. Whew. Is it getting hot in here?
B. This act is the great equalizer. Now he knows what it feels like. This gives a guy a chance to let her take over. Grab the wheel and let her drive. Plus, guys have this magic spot called the Prostate that makes this ride well worth he trip.
c. And what better way for a woman to experience playing the part of the Top or the Dominant than to take him where he is most vulnerable?
My favorite married gal had these great points when I brought up the topic: 1) stuff in your butt doesn't make you gay 2) don't start with something that looks like a big cock 3) don't strap it on to start, tiny butt plugs rock 4) male g-spot/prostate 5) dogs like to chew on butt plugs, so don't leave them lying around the house
She told me she’s lost two plugs already! Learn from this!
I was surfing the web a bit and found a hilarious article written by “Raunchy Love” for a Canadian University, sighting rising popularity of the Bend Over Boyfriend trend. Raunchy wrote: “Yes, ‘Pegging’ is a craze that’s been sweeping the nation faster than Canadian Idol and it’s all about gals playing ‘quarterback’ and their boyfriends playing ‘tight-end.’” Love those Canadians and their football metaphors.
The grand cheerleader of hetero butt-sex, Tristan Taormino, has dedicated lots of energy to the cause and helped developed Liberator Wedges and Ramps that make bend over positions all the more accessible and sexy.
And then there are Bend Over Beginner starting kits and the Bend Over Boyfriend Instructional DVDs and Videos by a hero of mine, Dr. Carol Queen. These are great starter tools for the curious and the uninitiated.
I haven’t heard much open discussion from hetero men about this, but maybe that’s part of the appeal. The juicy secret of hidden submission and pleasure between a man and a woman cannot be overestimated. But hey- if any of you readers out there have some helpful/entertaining insights to share, I’d love to hear them. Until then, pucker up, boys.
