Anal Sex [A Poll]

A friend and I are having a disagreement on how common anal sex is. He believes that it isn’t very prevalent outside porn and I think it’s fairly common… I don’t have any sites to cite online so I thought I’d poll you guys and get you to help me prove him wrong.

So, do you have anal sex? If so, how often? Do you do it 'cause it’s enjoyable to you or 'cause your partner wants it?

Thanks. :slight_smile:

No. No anal sex or anal play at all, other than external touching.

I’ve had anal sex, and can take it or leave it. It’s not painful or anything, I just prefer oral or good old vaginal sex. I think I did it mostly for my SO at the time, because it really turned him on.

I’ve had (well, given) anal sex. As Alexxandra said, I can take it or leave it. I wouldn’t be adverse to doing it, but if I met someone who said she never ever in a million years wanted to do it, I’d not care a whit.

Yes. About twice a month. Because I enjoy it.

Correction : Because we enjoy it. Don’t want to mislead :wink:

Tried it out of curiosity on both our parts, she didn’t like it, I could take it or leave it.

Just not into it, either doing, having done, or watching it in porn. I just have a hang-up about poo.

I did have a gf a while back, though, who liked to perform anallingus on me, and I have to say it felt fantastic. I tried reciprocating, but I really preferred plain old cunillingus.

There is no way that I’m going let Mr. Party Tool get all poopy!
Even if I put his little plastic jacket on … eeewwwwwwwwwwww!

I’ve tried it once. It’s nothing special to me. I prefer vaginal sex, although if Pricegal wants to try it, I’ll do it. It doesn’t freak me out or anything.

I regularly perform anilingus and have nothing against it (actually I quite enjoy it), although I try not to think about exactly what I’m doing.

I do not want to be the receptive part in anal sex or have anilingus performed on me.

Never tried it, not interested in trying it, not even interested in watching it in movies, and the same goes for the spouse. I can appreciate that other couples might enjoy it, but for me it’s just to icky to even contemplate.

i’ve hear of “tearing” stories and people having to go to the hospital… i don’t know that’s true or not… but it’s enough to keep me from giving it a try :slight_smile:

I remember thumbing through a college sex ed text book years ago that had data from a fairly comprehensive survey of American sexual practices (it wasn’t Kinsey or M&J) and it was probably written in the late 80’s.

Anyway, I was somewhat surprised that it reported around 20% of women have had anal sex and I think it was around 10% who regularly (??? frequency) have anal sex. I’m sure someone could find something to support or refute this, but I think actually looking it up would be a pain in the ass.

the odd finger now and agian, yep, anything bigger is a bit too umm, daunting.

Geez I guess I’m one of the few around here who has had plenty of practice then. It was normal for my ex-wife and I for around 7 years, and by normal I mean 95%+ of the time. It’s really not that dirty, I can only remember one time it was really bad.

I think that if you wanted to try it you have to go about it slow and start with a finger or two, then move up to a few fingers. You might be suprised at how much it can stretch. I’ve never heard or seen any serious tearing, nor have the other women who wanted to try it had any real complaints except it hurts a bit, which is mostly because they are not used to it.

One last thing, there is a book called The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women, don’t know the author but it was quite good, I found it at a Boarders. I’m not going to look up the author at work though so you can do that on your own!

Well, my partner and I do it often, at least two or three times a week, but then we’re a gay couple.

Have tried it with previous partners but found I was more definitely wary of it that they were. Never felt comfortable with it at all.
No real desire to, well, pursue that avenue again.

On the other hand, so to speak, an inserted finger at the time of ejaculation can be an unexpected extra and create a more intense orgasm.

Don’t use a poll for anal sex unless it’s really well lubricated.

I like it, and off the top of my head I can’t think of any part I haven’t played in it. I don’t know about common, though, it tends to be more of a special occasion thing for me, but that decision is dictated more by my partners than by my desires.


Bi male here, I have both given anal sex, which I found to be extremly presurable due to the tightness, and engaged in a great deal of anal play. I haven’t recieved simply because I haven’t met the right boy.
