4 Pegging References in Pop Culture
Pegging's going mainstream!
While still considered a somewhat taboo subject, pegging is slowly becoming a more accepted and talked about subject, and we're all about it!
Pegging is an incredibly empowering and pleasurable experience for couples of any variety - if you're looking for some advice to start out, or want to know the ins and outs, be sure to check out our comprehensive guide!
We all know how influential pop culture can be. So hopefully by portraying pegging as a positive, empowering act, more people will open the doors to a bit of sexual exploration. Here are five pegging references that we've seen in pop culture....
Weeds was ahead of the craze, featuring pegging in an episode back in 2006. In this scene, Yael pegs Andy after finally agreeing to have sex with him. The encounter comes as somewhat as a surprise for Andy, however the show handles this scene in a positive way despite the lack of awareness that pegging had in the mid-2000s.
The pegging scene from Broad City has become so infamous, that you've probably already seen it floating around the Internet somewhere. In this scene from 2015, Abbi is in bed with cute neighbour Jeremy. When she asks if they can switch things up, Jeremy excitedly rushes to his dresser to retrieve a large, bright green strap-on.
Abbi then faces a dilemma: to peg or not to peg? Of course, she calls up her best friend Ilana, who is excited and encourages her to go through with it, which she does - and everyone is happy. BFF goals, right?
The 2016 American superhero film Deadpool received a considerable amount of praise from viewers, who loved its dark humour and characters. But one scene that definitely shouldn't go unnoticed, is the pegging scene during the sex montage. In celebration of International Women's Day, Deadpool's wife Vanessa penetrates him with a strap-on.
The best thing about this reference is that pegging is often frowned upon by heterosexual males, as they believe it is linked to homosexuality. But in Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds, while portraying a "manly", tough character, has no problem playing up the gender roles and becoming the submissive one. Equality, ya'll!
It isn't just TV shows and movies that are promoting pegging in a sex-positive light! While suffering a bit of backlash about its appropriateness, Teen Vogue released an article earlier this year based around anal sex. While it did not exclusively cover pegging, the article was aimed at younger audiences to inform and educate them, including diagrams of the prostate and encouraging anal sex for all genders.
While it's not for everyone, pegging is known to strengthen heterosexual relationships, with professionals stating that the role reversal and gender switch can be incredibly beneficial.
Celebrities aren't so different from us after all! Again, while no celebrity has explicitly discussed the details of their pegging adventures (yet!), many have admitted to loving a bit of back-door action.
Among these celebrities is 50 Cent, Drake and Kanye West, although the details might be a little off. Either way, we reckon it's just a matter of time before our fave celebs give in to pegging...
Whether you and your partner are interested or not, always practice safe sex and keep things fun, sexy, and consensual!
