'Saddlebacking' Defined


Syndicated sex columnist Dan Savage has done it again! Take that Rick Warren, you festering bigot!!

Following the success of such neologisms as 'pegging' and 'santorum', both of which are as firm wedged into my vocabulary as can be - it's almost like they've been pegged there, so that not even santorum could work them loose* - he has now added 'saddlebacking' to the lexicon, then left it to Fate and bloggers like yours truly to spread it far and wide... HELLO!

Defined as 'the phenomenon of Christian teens engaging in unprotected anal sex in order to preserve their virginities' it also manages to incorporate the practice of barebacking with the anti-sex dogma and failure of 'abstinence only' sex education**. As he wrote in this week's column:

'Here's why this definition is perfect: Saddlebacking, like barebacking, involves one person riding up on another's backside. But in this case, it's not the bare-naked cock-in-ass that's the most important feature of the ride, but the fact that the person being ridden has been saddled - thanks to the efforts of the Rick Warrens of this world—with religious hang-ups and serious misconceptions about sex. Like the barebacker who casually tosses away his health - or his partner's health - because he believes, quite erroneously, that 'risky = sexy', the saddlebacker offers up her ass because she believes, quite erroneously, that she can get fucked in the ass - vigorously, religiously - and still be considered a virgin on her wedding night.'

Amen, brother!

Is it any wonder that the fastest growing demographic of HIV cases are young women - especially those saddlebacked by boyfriends who inject steroids with infected needles, with nary a gay man in sight? And yet they're allowed to give blood, while we're not.

Ah, but that's a matter for another post...

*HA! A two-fer!!
**Especially since it's been proven again and again to not work.
