Anal Sex: A Beginner's Guide

Once a taboo, anal sex is now seen as an enjoyable addition to many sexual relationships. According to the National Survey of Attitudes and Lifestyles, the amount of people practising anal sex went up from 12 per cent in 1990 to 17 per cent between 2010 and 2012 for men, and from 11 per cent in 1990 to 15 per cent during that time for women.

So now your partner wants to give it a try. Perhaps they’ve tried it before and enjoyed it, or maybe it’s long been a fantasy of theirs (and maybe yours too). If so, you wouldn’t be alone - a study found that anal sex is a common sexual fantasy for 32 per cent of women and 64 per cent of men. On the other hand, some people have a very clear idea that anal sex isn’t for them, and that’s totally fine too as nobody should ever do anything that feels in any way coercive or uncomfortable...

The Independent - LOL! etc.

Fagburn sometimes wonders if the lessening of the taboo around bumsex has helped lessen male-male homophobia, or is it vice versa, or like chickens and eggs?

Fuck knows.

PS No, I don't understand the bizarro choice of stock photo, either. Maybe the article was about fisting and they decided to tone it down at the last minute?

Update: Anal seems to be in fashion.
