Twitter is in a tizzy over this whole “dude sex” phenomenon
People cannot stop talking about “dude sex” and/or “bud sex” and/or “bro jobs.”
The term “bud sex” was coined by Tony Silva, a researcher at University of Oregon, whose new study, Bud-Sex: Constructing Normative Masculinity Among Rural Straight Men That Have Sex With Men, is the talk of the world wide web at the moment.
According to Silva, bud sex (aka dude sex) is when two men who identify as straight hook up together in a discreet, NSA sort of way. They have wives. They have kids. They consider themselves to be heterosexual. But they’re able to compartmentalize sex in a way that allows them to occasionally get intimate with other guys without complicating anything.
Apparently not everyone else is able to compartmentalize these guys’ sexualities so easily, however.
Check out what folks on Twitter have been saying…
So apparently there is this term as "Bud-sex"
Interesting! Human behaviour is really fascinating!

Also interestingly I think "dudesex" and the explanation of it COULD apply to men who are incarcerated for extended times
