The social conservative right gets it right when they say that normalizing gay marriage and gayness in general will lead to a breakdown of traditional morality. Butt licking is not explicitly forbidden by the bible but I think it comes under the penumbras and emanations of Leviticus.

While I'm not personally opposed to butt stuff I think I must draw the line at licking. I don't see the appeal.

That image at the top of the article is clearly ripped off from Gentle Giant's "Acquiring the Taste".

If the epidemic becomes widespread in 2017, then Bill Clinton in his role as First Spouse will be the perfect person to spearhead this campaign.

I'm no expert on butt munching, but I don't think the eye comes in contact with the butthole, so there is little chance of infection unless you lick your eyeballs like a gecko.

Right, rimming is just tongue. The activity where you rub your eye on somebody's butthole is called "oculus rifting".

I confess I didn't read the article. Is the contention (no, I still haven't read it) that the practice was suppressed between Chris Rock's bit and now?

Wasn't Chris Rock's bit about the practice as part of prison rape? And this is maybe different now.

This is actually a sex act where I find myself seriously wondering about the public health implications. Not that I know whether it in practice does spread cholera (not a problem for anyone reading award-winning histories, of course), but it seems like it might. Anyone on top of the research?

29: I believe that there is a greater risk of Hepatitis A. Kids are now routinely vaccinated against Hep A and Hep B. Most adults are just offered the Hep B vaccine. I got vaccinated at a community health clinic which had a history of providing care to LGBTQ-A communities, and they did both.

How effective are those vaccines? I knew a guy from Pakistan and he seemed to view Hep A and B as something one got from time to time.

37: I thought that Hep A was a bad acute illness, and Hep B was more chronic. In MA Human Services Agencies are required to provide the Hep B vaccine to their employees at no cost. Not sure what that says about their effectiveness.

Maybe it was only Hep A. He was talking about something you catch by eating.

Staid is what Gentle Giant was, one of the duller bands to come out of the Canterbury scene. The softs were more experimental, Caravan dirtier, Gong hippier and Hatfield and the North more deliberately obscure.
