The real problem with ”Rate Your Shag”

Now, I was going to write a huge rant about ”Loughborough: Rate Your Shag” but I already did a mini rant on Facebook and Twitter so I have decided to approach it differently.

For those of you who do not know, the ”Rate Your Shag” pages on Facebook have been created so people can send in anonymous posts rating someone they have slept with. That’s right, instead of the good old fashioned working at it, we’re now apparently giving them a rating of one to ten in our heads and then rushing to our laptops to tell them our comments like we’re Simon Cowell on The Sex Factor. I thought rating someone’s performance in bed was restricted to videos on porn websites but apparently not.

Now, I could rant and rage about ”Rate Your Shag” but quite frankly, ”Ain’t nobody got time for that” so I’m going to say one thing. There is a saying that goes ”It takes two to tango” and it is something that is very appropriate when talking about sex; you may think the person you slept with was God awful in bed, but how do you know that you weren’t just as bad? You posted anonymously on the page so you aren’t getting any feedback yourself.

It’s all very well to slag off someone’s sexual skills and say it was the worst shag of your life, but if it was THAT bad then they probably won’t be praising you to high heaven either. So (even though this won’t happen) I propose that when you send in a post to ”Rate Your Shag” the admin forward your name to said person so they can leave you feedback (anonymously of course). That way both parties are getting humiliated publicly, because if society really is going downhill then I at least thing everyone should be dragged down with it and not a select few.



Ok, I’m done.
