fast: what is it prince williamThe legacy? Will it be second in line to the British throne? Is it his brief tenure as the cover star of countless editions of J-14 Y People Issues of Sexiest Man Alive (and his subsequent demise from such publications after reaching his thirties and revealing himself to be genetically less aligned with his glamorous mother and more with his carrot-like father Danvers?) Or is it inadvertently popularizing a sexual act? which had been most prominently associated with a tongue-in-cheek superhero franchise?
Last week, His Royal Highness’ legacy was essentially solidified when the hashtag #PrinceOfPegging started trending on Twitter. The hashtag was based on a tip from DeuxMoi, an Instagram account that posts hidden celebrity items (completely unverified). One of last week’s blind items focused on a British royal whose extramarital affairs are “an open secret in London and among the English aristocracy”. The blind article says the following:
“At a recent media party, I was told that the real reason for the affair was the royals’ love for bondingin which his wife is too old-fashioned to participate. The wife doesn’t care and, in fact, she prefers her husband to satisfy her sexual needs elsewhere, as long as things don’t get emotional, as was the case with the last woman.”
For the uninitiated, “pegging”, a term coined by Dan Savage, is the act of putting on a harness and having penetrative sex with another person; it often refers to a straight man being anally penetrated by a female partner, but that is not necessarily the case. Historically, the act has been stigmatized, but has gained increasing acceptance within the cis-hetero community, thanks to increased cultural visibility through shows like wide city and movies like Dead pool. “More straight men are unlearning their shame-based biases around receptive anal sex, and more straight women are empowering themselves with the portrayals of pegging they are witnessing in popular media,” says sex and intimacy coach Ashley Blanket. She predicts that pegging “will continue to become more and more common until it is no more taboo than a handjob or a blowjob.”
Many royal watchers interpreted the data as a reference to Prince William, whose marriage to Kate Middleton has been the subject of intense speculation in recent years. That’s largely due to rumors circulating of an extramarital affair between William and Rose Hanbury, who goes by the nickname the Marchioness of Cholmondeley (pronounced Chumley, for some reason). In 2019, there was a (now deleted) story in the British tabloid. Sun suggesting that Kate Middleton and Rose, who had been good friends for some time, had had a falling out, with some suggesting that William’s alleged affair with Rose was part of the reason. (True to form, the palace did not comment directly on the story, instead sending anonymous sources to refute it. “This is a lie that goes around the world before the truth has had time to kick off its boots,” one saying the Daily Mail.)
Following the publication of that story, Rose has been seen going to church with William and Kate, and was also photographed at Prince Philip’s memorial service a few months ago, seemingly putting those rumors to rest. However, rumors of incorrectness on William’s part have been around for a long time. delayed in the media, with DeuxMoi’s blind article only fueling speculation.
Does William know about this rumour? Most likely not. Is he self-aware enough to know that, if true, would be by far the most interesting thing about him? No. And would he be happy about the fact that he has unwittingly been chosen as the spokesperson for a taboo sex act that more and more straight men are adopting?? Probably not.
But that seems to be exactly what happened, if the Google Trends data surrounding the term “pegging” is any indication: As of last Thursday, searches for “pegging” was up 400 percent. In addition, Pornhub Insights, that referent of cultural trends, published a blog mail indicating that searches for “pinning” had increased by 318 per cent in the UK alone, and “mail on a leash” also saw a 98 per cent increase. The top three searches for the term included “female domination pinning”, “pegging threesome” and “fixing her butt”. Hail Britannia.
