Everything You Wanted to Know About the Rise of Anilingus (But Were Afraid to Ask)

We’re entering an age of more sexual openness with regards to butts.

With anilingus currently in so many editorial spreads and on the tip of so many tongues, it bears noting that Mozart wrote a song about eating ass.

And porn star Asa Akira declared in an interview that, “Culturally, ass is the new pussy.”
