Prostate Massage Is the New Sexual Frontier
Even among the open-minded and libertine audience for sex columns, heterosexual men being on the receptive end of butt play has been, until very recently, a taboo—a sign of latent homosexuality. "I remember writing about anal stimulation among straight men—and specifically the act of pegging—for a blog about ten years ago," recalls Timaree Schmit, a sex educator and host of the podcast Sex With Timaree. "It received more comments than any other piece the site had ever hosted." Many commenters "insist[ed] that any man who wants or enjoys having his ass touched was gay."
What a difference a decade makes. Straight male anal penetration and prostate stimulation are having a moment. The "p spot" is a topic, discussed in terms neutral of sexual orientation, for such trend-oriented outlets as Shape, AlterNet, Psychology Today and GQ. Male characters have been "pegged" (a term coined by Savage's readership eight years before DREW's freak-out over it) by women in media as divergent as Netflix's historical drama "Marco Polo," R-rated slapstick superhero blockbuster Deadpool, and Comedy Central's "Broad City." Online sex retailers are adding prostate stimulator and male sex toy sections, and sales have increased.
"From 2015 to 2016 we've seen our sales under this category grow nearly 13 percent," says Katy Zvolerin, director of public relations for the online and brick-and-mortar sex-toy chain Adam & Eve. "Projections for 2017 will have us eclipse this mark as more prostate toys and anal kits hit the market." Zvolerin describes the market as "advanced," adding, "We carry everything from a small non-intimidating jelly plug to the advanced multi-faceted gear that incorporates a cock ring and anal plug into one toy."https://tonic.vice.com/en_us/article/prostate-massage-is-the-new-sexual-frontier
