I'm a bit shock at todays afternoon play ... and I might be pissed off if I had a preschooler at home with me asking "what is anal sex mummy".

<expects hundreds of posts claiming Mintyy is an old prude>

Mintyy is most definitely NOT a prude shock

I'm intrigued about what the play was about! It's not prudish to not want Anal Sex as an accompaniment to your lunch!

i haven't listened to radio 4 afternoon plays for years. complain to the bbc, was there a warning before the play began?

i'm with you mintyy. you're not an old prude, you're quite reasonable.

I would be surprised that they had picked up on it tbh, ime R4 plays are not that exciting! In fact when she was a baby R4 was about the only thing guaranteed to put DD to sleep grin

Those Radio 4 afternoon plays are weird. Would never have thought they'd do anal though!

Yanbu. People can come to Mumsnet if they want to be exposed to that sort of filth and depravity.

I always miss the good plays.

Note to self to look on catch up

I was in the car with my parents and my astute five year old when an afternoon play came on the radio once. The sound of rampant shagging - grunts, squelches, slappings, wailings, groans and heavy breathing filled the airwaves for what seemed like at least thirty seconds. For the first time in years I was properly embarrassed!

This one had references to having sex, porn, anal sex ... only talked about, not acted out, but could/would you have this on tv before the watershed?

Yanbu to expect a warning if there's going to be adult content.

Yabu to think of anal sex as somehow 'worse' than any other recreational sex act smile

Anal sex on Radio 4??? Gosh, doesn't seem like it fits with the shipping forecast and Women's Hour!

I'm a little bit tempted to look up this play later!

MaeMobley Mon 31-Mar-14 15:43:15

At least it was not during The Archers! YANBU.

You know the Mail is going to pick up on this thread and quote you in yet another Beeb bashing article...

Radio 4? Are you sure? shock

Mintyy Mon 31-Mar-14 16:50:14

Really tigermoll? Is anal sex seen as a totally mainstream thing these days? I am so out of touch.

UncleT Mon 31-Mar-14 17:26:04

YANBU. No way that's acceptable mid-afternoon. As an aside though, while I love Radio 4, the afternoon plays are complete tosh. Embarrassingly bad stuff as a rule.

maras2 Mon 31-Mar-14 17:57:02

Agree that most R4 afternoon plays are crap . However there is no watershed so maybe don't listen when littlies are about .

tigermoll Mon 31-Mar-14 18:19:17

Hi Mintyy smile I just meant that anal has this 'dirty' reputation, as if it's somehow more perverse/degrading/weird/disgusting than of the other activities that take place between consenting adults. When really it's just another recreational sex act, and shouldn't be considered shameful.

Kundry Mon 31-Mar-14 18:20:38

YABU but purely because you listened to the Afternoon Play which is invariably dreadful.

Mintyy Mon 31-Mar-14 18:26:29

Hmm, I can't quite let go of the idea that anal sex is actually dirty. But there you go, as I said, am old fashioned and probably behind the times.

I didn't really listen to the play, in my defence grin. Am surprised there is no watershed on the radio.

tigermoll Mon 31-Mar-14 18:34:05

All sex is dirty. If it's done correctly.

I am in no way prudish, but anal sex on radio 4 in the afternoon?! Never mind a preschooler, what if I'd had it on and been sat with... My mum!! shockshockshockshockshockshockshockshock
