Impolite Society: Tackling the Taboo, One Rude Question at a Time
Does Batman Go Down? And Should You?
Show Notes

Cunnilingus is as old as the human species, but this sex act is still taboo in our modern society. So taboo that Batman was forbidden to do it in a recent HBO Max series. Why is it that an act for female pleasure is seen as delinquent, but fellatio is being boasted about in locker rooms across America?

We’re lapping up the history of cunnilingus across the animal kingdom, what evolutionary benefit this sex act may have had, and why the power dynamics of sex make us so uncomfortable. All this to get to the bottom of the rude question: Does Batman go down, and should you?

That’s what you're in for today on Impolite Society.
