Putting your penis in someone's bum is the wrong way to make babies. If it's a woman's bum, it's 100% the wrong way. If it's a man's bum, it's still 100%, but kind of even more the wrong way, if you see what I mean.
So okay. If sex were about making babies, gay men would be pretty bad at it.
The thing is, sex is not just about making babies. This won't come as a shock to many people, because let's face it, sex is a good way to spend an evening (and a morning). Everyone knows it.
But go a bit further, and a lot of people do get shocked. Here's two ideas that a lot of people have around the world:
- Anal sex is wrong, 'cos it's, you know, dirty. Bumholes are dirty.
- Sex between two men is wrong, because two men can't make babies.
Both of these are not only bogus arguments against gay sex and gay people, they're also contradictory. Think about it - if two men having sex is wrong because anal sex is wrong, how come there is no public issue with man-woman anal sex? You don't hear religious people preaching against the terror of men putting their penises in women's bums.
So if it's not about being dirty, the argument must be about making babies. Right?
No, I don't get it either.
If you want to make a baby you'll need either a) a man, a woman, and some free time, or b) some scientists in white coats and a plant called "Ivy F".
If you want to get some hot, sticky, sweaty, tender, pleasureful exercise with someone you know and like, sex is a pretty good bet, whether it's between men or women. (Although if you don't want a baby, contraception is a requirement...)
