Anal Sex: Top 10 Most Common Misconceptions

Anal sex is a highly misunderstood and controversial topic, so we have finally come to give you the truth on this sinfully pleasurable act. Many people are scared to take part in this experimental sexual action, and even more scared to ask questions about it. To give you all the information you need to know, we have finally brought you the answers to the top ten question you might have about anal sex!

Number Ten: Anal Sex Is Painful… Right?

Everyone fears this notorious act for the rumors about how much it hurts. It may hurt sometimes, but often it only hurts because it isn’t being done right. It many cases, it can actually prove to be a painless and pleasurable alternative to standard intercourse. To make the experience as easy as possible, it is necessary to have the proper preparations. Allow a lot of time for this experience, as it is essential to go slow. Start out with small insertions, such as fingers, and work up to larger options. Make sure to use plenty of lube, and simply relax. If you are nervous or uptight, that can be the biggest cause of experiencing pain from this act.

Number Nine: Is it Always Going to Hurt?

Many women have tried anal sex, and immediately closed off the option from a single bad experience. It may have hurt once, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will hurt every time. It is essential to remain open-minded; you may just need a little more practice to get it right. Once you get it down, you’ll be able to enjoy it more in the future.

Number Eight: Isn’t Anal Sex for Sluts?

The porn industry has seriously damaged the societal view of anal sex. Many women refuse to take part in the act for fear of the reputation it may bring to their image. We all have curious tendencies, and every experience is worth trying- with the right partner. Anatomically speaking, anal sex is potentially more pleasurable than many sexual experiences, mainly because everyone has what is essentially a “G-spot” in their abdomen accessible only by anal insertion. Gay guys have been mastering the art for as long as time can recall, and even heterosexual men would enjoy the insertion once they relax. Having this kind of sex doesn’t make you a slut, but you probably shouldn’t be broadcasting your sex life anyway.

Number Seven: Is This the Only Way Guys Will Want Me?

The insecurities of women often lead them to believe that doing things other women won’t, such as anal sex, will fix the issues in their sex life and make more men want them. If you aren’t comfortable being seen as that person, simply don’t take this step in a relationship until the right partner is found. This is an exhilarating sexual experience for two people who wish to intimately show their love and care for each other with sexual pleasure. It should never be done just to make someone like you, or as a means to save a dying relationship. Be smart about it, ladies. Using it to fix problems will only make those problems harder to deal with in the future.

Number Six: Is my Boyfriend Going to See Me Differently After?

In many cases, the answer to this question could be yes. There are many deplorable men out there who will simply toss you away once they get what they want from you, and that is in reference to all sexual acts. Once again, we must state that it is important to find the right partner to share this experience with; one who will see it as a means to bond and grow closer to each other. We can’t promise that your boyfriend, in particular, won’t do this to you, but you must use your judgement to find a man who sees you as more than just a sex toy.
