A PSA From Michelle

Having come across this issue a couple times in the past few months I’m forced to make this statement: Look, once any body part or object has been inserted into the ass it cannot then be placed in the vagina. I understand that in the heat of the moment our hero and heroine might forget basic hygiene, but as a reader all I can think about is the raging case of crotch rot the heroine is in for. Can we have a shower in the interim, or at least a ho bath? Even a baby wipe will do, but please let them clean up in some fashion before continuing. Otherwise the book is a total wallbanger. And not in a good way.

    Amen. Front to back, people. Front to back.

    I have noticed this several times lately, too, and it completely squicks me, jarring me out of the book. Along with a few other sexual hygiene-related things, it makes me wonder if this is another area where sloppy research/planning is going on.

  • Common sense should be enough, without actual research.

    And unless they are watching porn with that particular fetish, there’s no research, sloppy or otherwise, that wouldn’t turn up the health issues.

    I’m with you AL, I wouldn’t think research would be necessary either. If wiping back to front is a no-no how can they miss that sexing back to front is even worse? I dunno, but I need them to stop immediately.

    I consider myself lucky–I’ve never read a scene like that. There’s always at least a condom change.

    I can’t believe any research would be necessary. I mean, you’re inserting something that was in someone’s ass–you know, that place where feces comes out–into her vagina, without washing up in between. If the author is consciously going there, there needs to be at least one line acknowledging it. It squicks me out, personally, but if I were to read such a scene I’d be more annoyed by the fact that it’s ignored.

    I am SO with you on this. I’ve encountered my share of those types of scenes, particularly in paranormals, where the reasoning is “they can’t get diseases” due to their supernatural abilities/nature…for me, it doesn’t “fly” at all, not even in that type of scenario.

    I don’t think I’ve ever encountered one of these scenes either (or else I’ve just completely blocked them from my memory 🙂 ), but all I can say is euwww – diseases or not – just euwww.

    Maybe a little research IS necessary in this instance for those authors who just don’t get how bad this is.

    Take one sex toy, even a super smooth one. Insert it where the sun don’t shine. Remove and take a good look at it. Do you really want to insert that in its current condition in any other orifice of your body? HELL to the NO!

    And a supersmooth sex toy in no way replicates all the textures and bulges of a human penis. Think on all the Crap, literally, coming out on the backstroke as it gets trapped.

    Go elswhere with that without a good cleanup? SHUDDER!

  • Yes, heck to the yes. Along with the no lube anal, my personal annoyance. Sorry author, but……lube, lube, lube.

    Can we please add fingering her ass then rubbing her clit with the same hand to this list? Thank you.
