This series shines a little light on the human anus. More so than any other part of the body, it is a physical feature men and women have in common. Many consider the subject taboo, not to mention the notion of including the anus in any sexual scenario. But for those a little more adventurous, discovering the magic and mystery of their partner’s anus opens up a whole new world of wonder.
In ancient Peru some 40% of all married couples included anal intercourse in their love making experiences. Today, in Rio de Janeiro, 50% of the married population engages in anal sex. Beyond simple enjoyment, others reasons given are to avoid pregnancy or avoid contact with menstrual blood, or to avoid rupturing the hymen before marriage.
So what is the female perspective in the western world? European and American women aren’t overly concerned about broken hymens before marriage. And since they’re using the pill, they don’t have to spread their cheeks to avoid pregnancy. So why are more women trying anal sex and including it in their sexual repertoire?
A 1992 survey found that 16 percent of women aged 18-24 had experimented with anal sex. Today the number is more like 40 percent. Why? The answer may be summed up by just one word … orgasm. During their most recent sexual encounter, 65% of the female respondents said they had reached an orgasm with vaginal sex. The number increases to 81% for those who had received oral sex. For those who had anal sex, the number jumped to 94%.
A 2013 Maxim’s survey produced these results about what women are okay with concerning anal sex:
• Nothing. stay away from there. 41.7%
• Some fingering. 19.5%
• Mouth/tongue action. 10.0%
• Anal sex—bring it! 28.8%
The same Maxim’s survey asked about what women fantasize about:
“To be urinated on while having shower sex.”
“Taking a girl from behind with a strap-on while she gives my boyfriend a blow job.”
“Acting out naughty skits from video games.”
“I fantasize about pirate role-playing.”
“To have sex with a hermaphrodite.”
(Today’s women have become quite imaginative!)
Many women who say they hate anal sex have actually never tried it. That seems to suggest their opinion was formed by either their preconceived notions and/or by how society views anal sex (which seems to be changing), and also from what they have heard from friends that have related negative experiences with a uneducated lover. The women that did not like it that had tried anal sex said it hurt, largely because their lover rushed and did not take enough time.
As for men, many men, despite the fact their anuses look like women’s, that they have the same sensitive nerve endings as women, would say penetration of any kind must mean the guy is gay. These are men that will go to their graves having missed out on some very Continue reading
