Anal Sex is one of the most popular sex positions but has long been a taboo subject. However behind closed doors it's as common as putting mayo on a burger.
There's nothing like having a sex chat with your friends to make you feel ahead or behind the sexual curve, particularly when that curve is the butt. If it seems like they're all trying anal sex, that's not a crazy assumption: 36 percent of women between ages 18 and 44 have had heterosexual anal sex in their lifetime, and 13 percent have done so recently.
If you haven't taken part in any butt play yet, we don't necessarily suggest you bring these facts up at your next cocktail party, but they could make for some fascinating fodder with your sexual partner when you get back home.
1. It Shouldn't Hurt
An obvious fear about anal penetration is that it'll be painful to insert something as big as a penis (or even a finger) into such a small hole. You really need to be communicating the whole time before the act, during, and after. There may be discomfort, but there shouldn't be pain so if there is then stop immediately. Like everything else, pain is a signal that something is wrong. If you feel uncomfortable, start with a small item, such as a toy, and work up from there.
2. It's More Pleasurable for a Man to Receive Anal Sex
No, this is not a myth. The prostrate is stimulated through the anus, and you can find it inside of him if you insert a finger inside and make a hook toward the front, meaning toward his testicles. You can also stimulate that area by pressing into the perineum, or the space between his testicles and anus. We have a large range of Prostate Massagers which will send him straight to orgasm.
3. The Prostrate is Similar to the G-Spot
You think guys have all the luck? Not so fast. Women actually have an analogous area, the G-spot. It has very similar tissue as to the prostrate. A partner can access your G-spot by penetrating with a similar hooked angle toward the anterior wall of your vagina, whether that be with a finger, his penis, or a toy. If you prefer your G-Spot to be aroused the traditional way then we have a huge range of G-Spot Vibrators here.
4. Some Women Can Orgasm From It
Anal sex doesn't have to be some gift you give your partner so he can check it off his own bucket list. Contrary to popular belief, you might enjoy it too. The G-spot tissue explains why some women like anal sex. A penis might hit your G-spot from an entirely new angle, providing an entirely new orgasm.
5. There Are Nerve Endings in the Anus
You know that the penis and vagina are packed with nerves right, but what's in the butt? The skin and tissue there are different from the vulva, but there are also nerve endings. A lot of people who are experimenting with anal play require very little stimulation on the outside to get a pleasurable reaction.
6. There Is No Lubrication
Your vagina is prepared for sex just about all day, every day for most of your life, and it prepares you more by smoothing penetration. Not so much for the anus. Just about any anal play would benefit from some lubricant.
7. His Penis Might Hit Your Intestine
When a man's penis is incredibly long or going incredibly deep, you might feel the sensation that he's hitting your cervix. For anal sex, there is an anatomical equivalent. In theory, you can continue going up the intestine the higher up you go. That's one reason you shouldn't insert things that will perforate the [delicate skin of the] intestines.
8. It's Possible to Poop on Him - But Only In Extreme Circumstances
Um, can you say biggest fear realised? But it would take a strange series of events (and poor judgement) to wind up pooping on him. Typically, as long as you're a healthy person, you're not going to lose control of your bowels so you need not worry. If you have a gastrointestinal illness, food poisoning, or you're intoxicated, you may have more reason to fear.
9. Still, You Might Feel the Urge to Go
Many women who experiment with anal sex may feel that (terrifying) urge to take a bowel movement during the act, but it typically goes away. You may get the feeling of the urge to pee when a sex position is pressing on you at an odd angle. This depends on what is in your bowel system, so it's not a bad idea to go to the bathroom within the hour before having this type of sex.
10. You Can Get a UTI from Anal Sex
A urinary tract infection happens when bacteria enters your urethra and adheres to its inner wall. Anal play of any kind might leave more bacteria on the fingers or penis, so if he switches to touching your labia or clitoris, it could then be transferred. So its important to wash your hands or use a wipe between acts. You also need to switch condoms if you go from anal sex to vaginal sex which is very important.
11. You Can Get Pregnant from Anal Sex
This is always worth mentioning, and the answer is Yes it is possible that if someone ejaculates into your anus then the semen could migrate to the outer third of your vagina. And any time there is semen near your vagina, it's possible for those little swimmers to reach an egg. Use a condom to avoid any little surprises.
12. Anal Play Won't Stretch Out Your Butt Hole
If women worry about their vaginas stretching out from use it follows they'd worry about the same thing with their anuses. Put it this way: It would take a lot to stretch it to the point where it couldn't come back, such as regular use of extremely large toys. Though, you might just relax after the first time having anal sex, which makes it feel like it's got a little bigger. But don't worry you haven't wrecked it, you're just starting to enjoy it! You can stretch your anus in a variety of ways from Butt Plugs, Anal Beads and Stretchers.
