Dr. Evil, if it were made in a sexual context, of course it would.

Sexual context?  That's surely not the way I read it.  We may have a bit of a gender thing happening here.  "Ass whoopin" must have strongly different connotations to you then it does to me.  To me it means being beaten in a competition more than soundly in a fair and square manner.  You seem to think the writer has sexual nuances attached.   My guess that was not his intent whatsoever.

Maybe we are reading it differently, but I was basing it on the conversation that led up to that post. (If you want to look at it in the competition sense, however, it wouldn't be in a fair and square manner, as they mentioned in the post it was made to that he was older and out of her weight class).

The conversation being debated could be understood as suggesting what might be going on in the mind of a 15 year old boy who is contemplating the prospect that he might have the opportunity to wrestle with an attractive 15 year old girl.  It is probably sexual in context.
