I don’t know why this is so funny to me.

Maybe I have the emotional maturity of 13-year-old, but I keep snickering at this question from the Regneres study.

Q115 Have you ever had anal intercourse? (By anal intercourse, we mean when a man inserts his penis into his partner’s anus or butt hole.)

Maybe it’s the utter earnestness of the question and (especially) the clarification; or the look I imagine on someone’s face on hearing the question and (especially) the clarification; or the splitting of “butthole” into two words — what kind of hole? a butt kind of hole; or it’s the nonsensical “or” — his partner’s anus or butt hole (but not both?).

Or maybe it’s just funny.

An interesting note, though. Of the survey’s 2988 respondents, 2361 called themselves 100% heterosexual (that’s 79%), and 2729 were “mostly heterosexual” (or 91%).

Yet an ass-smacking 1145 said they’d had anal sex — almost 40%!

Keep that figure in mind next time you hear someone talking about the disgusting practices of the male homosexual. It ain’t a gay thing. It’s a human thing.

And now I offer my apologies and return you to usual gravitas and decorum of Box Turtle Bulletin.

Of course they’re going to say “anus” and “penis” and “butt hole”. It ramps up the ick factor with the awkward phrasing.

Substitute for the more natural “dick” and “ass”, and answers are bound to be different.

I swear, that study makes it seem like those who wrote the questions are stuck in TV Land.

40%? I guess you gays have been right all along. I wonder if it asked if you have ever been on the receiving end?

What really makes me mad is that they only asked about if when you were raised if your parent had a gay sexual affair. They never asked about straight affairs.

40% is, I believe, the CDC figure for hetero

So apparently, regerus’s data wasn’t pull out of his ass, just his conclusions.

So, a straight dude who takes it from his girlfriend with a strap-on isn’t having anal intercourse? Huh.

I think I am going to post this on all the Regnerus topics on Box Turtle. Let’s say we all work together and make a terrific website where we collect all this information on the Regnerus’ Study.

We crowd source this and everybody helps. I think what is missing is a lot of comments on the research by other Sociologists. We can all take a State and then call all the Universities in that State and speak to Sociologists there and ask them to provide their feedback on the research.

Other people can work on collecting up all the direct quotes from Regnerus.

Oh and shouldn’t we collect up all the places the data is being misreported? I saw for example a quote something like, “Well this study proves that pedophilia is rampant with gays”

And what about a website? Should we buy a domain name or should we use Blogger or Word press or something? If we hosted this separately how much would that cost us in bandwidth if a lot of people visited? Does anybody have idea on this?

Let’s set this up and organize this so it will be real easy for lawyers from our side to have a good reference point to jump off from.

What else? Do you like this idea? Who will help? I don’t mind if this is a part of Box Turtle and they are getting recognition for this. But I do think to do this right it is to big for the few guys at Box Turtle we need a lot more helping hands than just those guys. Whadda think?

I’m down SGM. I like the idea. Let me know how I can help; I’m already located near all three major research universities in my state.

Regarding technicalities I vote we start on blogger & grow it as demand dictates. That way we can use Google docs/cloud to coordinate too. But I’m an internet dunce. Perhaps there is already a better way to handle this on the net.

The incidents of sodomy (anal and oral sex) is up with Teavangelical kids, they get to remain ‘technically’ virgins. The stories my niece and nephew tell…

The stats may be up, Gus, but it’s not a new thing. Thirty years ago I met a couple of Pentecostal lads in a bath house. They romped about enjoying oral sex with joyous regularity that seemed extravagant even to me. We talked a bit and they explained that the Bible prohibits anal intercourse but is silent on oral sex.

I wanted to ask if they ever experienced glossolalia while sucking but thought that would be impolite.

A lot of it has to do with imagining Regnerus’ face as he says the line. As the video shows, he’s not comfortable saying LESBIAN, much less anus, or Butt Hole.

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children.

This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.
