I don't know if this is right or not, but what I've done for that in the past is to twist both stitches on the left needle (one at a time) and then p2tog through the front of the loop.  I *think* this should achieve the same effect...purling two together through the back of the loop just seems too complicated.

I do this by slipping both stitches (knitwise) individually to the right needle, put them back on the left needle, then the back loops will be in front and you can purl them together. It's similar to how ceedah explained it.
