Ok only thing I've got to say is no more "ick factor" pass for fundies... which will get their undies all bunched up... if a man puts his penis in his womans rectum and that is not ick... it is hypocrisy when they try to say that about men having anal sex. they didn't learn that sexual behavior from gay people it is a normal variant in human sexual behavior.

I'm so glad that's the definition that won the vote. That activity needed a name, and "saddlebacking" is perfect.

Can someone provide data on whether this is only a Christian phenomenon? There may be other fundamentalists who feel left out.
Regardless, this is a great definition and I look forward to it being the top result on google.
