Vogue, the new expert on everything butt-related, has declared butt sex is on the rise. Karley Sciortino, the site's sex columnist and blogger behind Slutever, backs that opinion with recent on-screen anal sex moments (did you catch this one?) and a workshop offered at Harvard—called "What What in the Butt: Anal Sex 101"—as evidence that butt sex isn't as taboo as it once was.

"While it's obviously hard to get exact numbers, a study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine in 2010 found that 40 percent of women by the ages of 20 to 24 have tried anal sex," Sciortino writes. "Also, hello, anal sex is a primary way that gay men have sex. Doesn't it seem high time we all stop being so embarrassed or squeamish about the topic of butt stuff, or simply pretending it doesn't exist?" You got it, Vogue.
