Anal sex is a form of sex that involves the penetration of the anus, often with an erect penis but just as often with a dildo, fingers, or any other object that can be inserted. Anal sex is commonly associated with gay couples and homosexuality in modern times and throughout history. Still, it is now slowly becoming understood that couples of all sexual identities can enjoy anal sex, including heterosexual couples and even single individuals. Lesbians are also known to enjoy anal sex using their fingers and dildos, vibrators, and household objects. While orgasms often occur through clitoral masturbation or pleasure, the sheer amount of nerve endings in the anus means that orgasms can occur through anal sex too, both for men and women, for the former through the stimulation of the prostate. Anal sex is also generally known as a potentially more painful form of sex. Still, there is a wide variety of advice online and on chat forums about minimizing discomfort for those seeking such information – such as by providing lubrication and how to warm up properly for the physical sensation.
HOW TO ENJOY ANAL SEX
One of the reasons that anal sex is popular in heterosexual couples is that it dramatically decreases the chance of pregnancy when not utilizing birth control, such as condoms. It would be difficult for the sperm to somehow travel from the anus into the vaginal opening deep enough to reach the interior female sexual organs, providing couples the ability to have sex without birth control and without an extreme concern for reproducing. However, anal sex doesn’t protect people from exchanging and contracting STIs; therefore, those who enjoy it still need to remain vigilant and careful about who they choose as their partners. Another reason for couples to select anal sex is due to its ease of access when a female sexual partner is on their period.
Not only can anal sex be enjoyed with a dildo or a penis and a whole host of sex toys that can change the course of the experience, such as butt plugs and anal beads. These toys can also help facilitate particular power dynamics through the act, such as by informing a sense of dominance and submission, masochism, or even sadism. It is also possible for pegging and fisting to be enjoyed, not only for homosexual couples but also for heterosexual couples looking to add to their sexual experience and power dynamic. Fisting is one of the least commonly enjoyed forms of anal penetration, as it requires an extreme relaxation that is difficult for anyone but highly experienced individuals to reach, but it is still enjoyed by many.

The main reason couples and individuals choose anal sex is not however due to its accessibility or ease, but instead due to the sheer physical pleasure it provides them. It’s no secret that there is a whole host of nerve endings in the anal region that make anal sex extremely pleasurable for both men and women, regardless of their preferences or sexual identity. For men, the pleasure itself can come from the friction of the penis rubbing up against the prostate internally through the anal wall, which can also often lead to an orgasm in of itself. This orgasm is often described on online chat forums by those who have experienced them as an even more pleasurable orgasm than those enjoyed through vaginal sex. It can often be long lasting and more intense too. It can also be an enjoyable form of sex as it allows for further reach of the G-spot, a particularly sensitive spot where pleasure is increased, which further provides for a better orgasm. This spot is a hot topic of debate among scientists and doctors over its particular location and reason for existing, but, regardless, online chats are filled to the brim with stories of incredible G-spot pleasuring and the resulting orgasms. This spot can be enjoyed by both men and women and explains women choosing anal sex over vaginal penetration too. Another reason women may prefer anal penetration to vaginal penetration is the tighter muscles of the anus to the vagina. This enhances the pleasure of the inserted penis for the male (if penetrated with an erect penis) and provides the women greater pleasure upon being penetrated. Some women may find anal sex more painful for this reason, typically when greater care has not been undergone to ensure they are properly lubricated, ready, and comfortable for this form of sex. Therefore, it is essential that they are fully prepared and turned on before attempting anal sex. And aftercare is just as important
Anal sex is also often enjoyed due to its association with dominance, making it a commonly practiced form of sex within BDSM and S&D relationships. The level of taboo that it exists within in greater society also only adds to the excitement it often creates. Therefore it has become only more prevalent in secret and on online chat forums as a result.
WHY THE TABOO?
Anal sex is often found to be a taboo form of sex due to its existence throughout history in opposition to religion. As it is not a form of sex that can typically produce children, it has often been seen as wasteful and condemned within religion and has therefore been vilified throughout history. For men who are receiving anal sex, it has been seen as being effeminizing, something that is now a source of its being popular but was, of course, once something to be avoided for safety reasons. Its often violent portrayal within pornography has also added to its taboo nature, even in modern times, where it is more accepted than ever, and it remains a criminal offense in some countries worldwide.
Anal sex is also often considered taboo due to the concern over contracting STIs. While it is a high-risk sexual practice due to the thin layers of skin in the anal region, therefore meaning tears happen more naturally, which can increase the spreading of STIs, the AIDS epidemic also created a genuine fear and disgust over the act, which was only bolstered by the extreme homophobia of the time.
