Anal Sex – Making it to TV

I have to say, I have never been much of a fan of American TV shows. The nearest I get to watching something with American accents in it is banging on NFL Sunday when I fancy watching the American football. However, my Mrs is a different creature altogether and every shitty American show seems to get watched.

Last week she was watching ‘The Mindy Project’. Obviously I wasn’t paying much attention, until I realised they were engaging in anal sex. I nearly had a heart attack to be fair.

Now I will admit here, anal sex really isn’t my scene. To me, the bum is where poo comes from and I don’t want my willy anywhere near that.

Two Certain Things

However, I know that two things are certain. Firstly, plenty of couples engage in it all over the country. Secondly, anal sex isn’t something that is EVER spoken about on television.

OK, it seems only fair that I actually say what happened as there will be guys out there who, like me don’t watch this kind of nonsense.

The two main characters are apparently ‘finally’ in a full monogamous relationship, but with monogamy comes sexual experimentation, and the episode ‘I slipped’ sees the man trying to get ‘Mindy’ to have anal sex with him.

Well, needless to say, the reviews of the show were not that favourable. This was addressed by actress Mindy Kaling who was asked by a fan about the uproar over the episode at a New York festival.

“I think that, we have to, in knowing what their relationship is and knowing that the way it was portrayed, it wasn’t something that made her feel unsafe or degraded … you can love someone and be in a relationship with them when you’re both consenting adults, and people can try things and you can be like … ‘I busted you on that.

“It was not an issue of sexual unsafety. I understand people felt that way, and I disagree … In a larger sense, we have this card — this red card — of stirring fear in men about certain things. I was sad about that because I thought, ‘Is that a situation where we want to use that card for that?’ It bummed me out a little bit. There was no sexual peril in there; it was not a situation where she felt unsafe or was objectified. She just was startled … I was sad about that.”

On set, Kaling once again defended the episode, saying she considered the issue relevant.

“I think a lot of men can relate to that,” she said. “We don’t do taboo things just for the hell of it. But this was also just consistently making us laugh. I think the death of any show is that it’s not relevant anymore.”

Bringing up the Conversation

To be fair, if this show has helped bring that conversation into normal households then that is a good thing. It is not always easy to bring up the subject of anal sex as many people still consider it taboo.

The more normalised anal sex becomes the better. There was once a time that homosexuality wasn’t mentioned on TV. However, once TV breaks down the walls, people who want to choose a lifestyle feel much more comfortable about venturing into it.

So a big thumbs up to ‘The Mindy Project’. I may never watch that special form of garbage, but they are definitely doing something very important.
