I used to think that Puritanism was what kept sex a dirty word in America, but I now have a new theory. I think these differing views towards sex are simply reinforced through every day language.
What we call the different sexual positions greatly affects our opinion of them. Let’s take doggy style.
I think Katherine Heigle said it all in Knocked Up. When she is asked if she wants to do it doggy style, she responds with, “you’re not going to fuck me like a dog.”
In French, doggy style is called levrette. FBF has assured me this brings up absolutely no images of les chiens en train de faire l’amour (dogs making love). To them, it’s just another way to bring pleasure to your partner. No dogs about it.
Now if only Seth Rogan had instead asked her to do it levrette-style, they might not have had such awkward pregnant sex!
