Anal Sex on Broadcast TV: “How to Get Away With Murder” and “The Mindy Project”

Sex on TV has always been shrouded by the censors. But there’s proof that sexual depictions are finally loosening up–especially with anal sex.

HBO has already tread this territory, with “Entourage” in its seventh season in 2010. Then it blew the door open with the “Girls” pilot in 2012, with Lena Dunham getting anally penetrated by her boyfriend.

Finally, broadcast TV is finally getting on that train. We’ve seen two such depictions in recent weeks.

On ABC, the “How To Get Away With Murder” pilot, which aired on Sept. 25th, showed first-year law student Connor Walsh (Jack Falahee) seducing IT guy Oliver (Conrad Ricamora) to get information about Oliver’s company. We don’t see any penetration, but when Connor flips Oliver over onto his stomach, we know what’s going down.

On Fox, “The Mindy Project” third season’s fourth episode shows couple Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) very comfortable in their relationship–so much so that Danny accidentally goes in the back door. Played for laughs, Danny simply says, “I slipped.”

The season’s just getting started, so hopefully we’ll see more sexual adventures from these and other shows very soon!
