A professor at Indiana University dedicated an entire academic journal article
to examining Jay-Z and Beyoncés marital analingus.
Why exactly does it matter what celebrities do behind closed doors? Well,
according to Indiana University professor Dinah Holtzman, it can highlight
important trends in cultural feminism.
In an academic journal article entitled Ass You Lick It: Bey and Jay Eat Cake,
Holtzman argues that Beyoncés marital practice of cake eating, also known as
analingus, is culturally significant and worthy of study for those entrenched in
debates on the pop stars relationship with feminism.
The Carters down-low affirmation of reciprocal analingus is notable because of
the larger cultural debates around Beyoncés embrace of feminism in late 2013 in
the midst of her Mrs. Carter Tour,' Holtzman wrote.
According to a summary of Holtzmans work, the article focuses on the marital
analingus that Beyoncé and her husband, rapper Jay-Z, engaged in between 2010
This essay investigates a period from 2010 to 2014 in which Beyoncé covertly
celebrates mutual marital analingus with her husband rapper Jay-Z, the abstract
reads. The couples subtle promotion of cake eating suggests the key to
commensurate male-female coupling is to queer and black(en) heterosex.
According to the Indiana University website, Holtzman is a lecturer in the
schools American Studies department. Her research interests include sexuality
studies, queer of color critique as well as critical race, feminist,
psychoanalytic and queer theory.
