HETEROSEXUAL ANAL SEX

A LARGE NUMBER OF HETEROSEXUAL MEN AND WOMEN ENGAGE IN ANAL SEX - IN SPITE OF THE IGNORANT BELIEF THAT IT IS A "GAY THING".





(From: The New Yorker)

Every couple of years, another once-scandalous sex taboo starts making its way toward the commonplace. A decade ago, blowjobs were what people whispered about; then three-ways became the naughty bedroom act. Now, it’s anal sex—but according to the Centers for Disease Control’s National Survey of Family Growth, it’s rapidly becoming a regular feature of hetero couples’ horizontal activities.

The survey, released last year, showed that 38.2 percent of men between 20 and 39 and 32.6 percent of women ages 18 to 44 engage in heterosexual anal sex. Compare that with the CDC’s 1992 National Health and Social Life survey, which found that only 25.6 percent of men 18 to 59 and 20.4 percent of women 18 to 59 indulged in it.

Anecdotal research also demonstrates curiosity is on the rise. Babeland’s anal-sex workshops are now held three or four times a year, instead of once, and they’re filled with straight couples. “More and more, people are devoting themselves to learning about anal pleasure,” says Carolyn Riccardi, education coordinator for Babeland’s New York retail stores. “Male-to-female anal sex has been happening since the dawn of time,” she says. “What’s different now is that women are actively learning how to enjoy it and have fun with it.”

“I first did it with my husband,” says Lisa, a recently divorced thirtysomething from across the Hudson. “It was a regular part of our married sex life, and I enjoyed it. I think it can feel good for anyone—except if you’re too uptight about it, meaning, you’re literally tight-assed.”
Ah, yes, the anal-sex dilemma: If you think it’s going to hurt, it will. 

Relaxation isn’t the only requirement for a good experience: Too much aggression (and no lube) can put a woman off anal sex permanently.
And not all guys are anal enthusiasts, either. Jim, a 27-year-old consultant, has been given the opportunity by willing partners but hasn’t taken the plunge. He agrees that it seems to be on the rise among his friends but wonders whether it’s “really a cultural shift or just something we ease into semi-contemporaneously as we age, like marriage or buying real estate or listening to jazz rap.”

The idea that anal is something couples eventually turn to for sexual variety seems to be supported by the CDC survey, which shows the lowest numbers among those who’ve never been married and are not cohabiting, compared with those who are cohabiting, married, or divorced.

“For me, anal sex is very intimate, much more so than regular sex. If I care about someone, I’m willing to experiment,” says Irene, a 33-year-old East Village environmentalist who has been doing it with Lex, a 30-year-old Wall Streeter. But when we press Lex on whether he likes to receive anal attention from his girlfriends, he responds, “Call me old-fashioned, but the guy should be the penetrator, not the penetratee, no?”

It’s an attitude still widely held by many straight men today, and one that’s reflected in the CDC survey: Though the report is chock-full of all kinds of straight, gay, and lesbian sex in fairly graphic detail, there’s absolutely no research on female-to-male anal play. It turns out that the straight-male fear of reciprocal anal play is a potent mix of sexism and homophobia; a straight man can do it to someone else, but having it done to him isn’t okay.

But the newly discovered anti-cancer benefits of prostate stimulation are giving straight guys—especially the progressive New York breed—a legitimate excuse to be more, shall we say, open to exploration. And men’s magazines, which until recently discussed anal sex only in terms of how to trick a girlfriend into giving it up, now publish articles on the Aneros—the doctor-created, FDA-approved prostate stimulator—and the male G-spot, a.k.a. the P-spot, a.k.a. the He-spot.

“Straight guys come in looking for the Aneros,” says Riccardi, “but once they get all their questions answered, they’ll walk out with something more fun and less medical for themselves. Or their girlfriends will come in looking for ways they can be the penetrator, too.” When Riccardi first started working at Babeland three years ago, she would gently ask straight female customers if they’d ever tried sticking a finger up their boyfriend’s or husband’s bum, and they’d shoot her looks of horror. “Now when I ask them that question, they almost all say, ‘Oh, sure.’ The stores strap-on sales have never been higher.


“My wife is totally turned on by the idea of ‘having’ me, as that’s just not something women really get to do most of the time, and it’s not something that guys have usually had done to them. It really is a reversal in the most primal of ways,” explains newlywed Brooklynite Anthony. “I think anyone who doesn’t enjoy it or thinks they wouldn’t is hindered by their own hang-ups. It feels good, period. And breaking taboos is sexy. Variety is sexy. Being vulnerable is sexy.”


PAT SAYS:

A few years ago I started to conduct my own little survey on the number of heterosexual men and women, married and single, engaged in anal sex.

I was surprised to find that nearly every man or woman I asked said that they had tried it at least once.

A number of married couples told me that it was a regular part of their lovemaking.

I think that it is highly ignorant to believe that this practice is confined only to gay men.

Many gay men and gay couples do NOT practice anal sex at all.

And many "straight" couples do practice it either occasionally or as a regular thing.

I thought that a recent comment maker on the Blog made a funny point when he asked: "Why did God put a man's G Spot inside his bottom!?

When it comes to sex many, many people have desires and fetishes that they would be embarrassed to talk about openly.

Any many people fantasize about and do things in private that they would not speak about openly.

Us Catholics, in particular, were given an awful hang-up about sex by the Church and by our parents and society under the Church's influence.

People need to be liberated from these hang-ups and need to understand that sex is a gift from God that we are meant to enjoy.

Of course in the course of that enjoyment, all things must be truly consensual and people should never be used or abused.

    1. Magna it's not even like your anatomy's like anyone else's - like all old hens you have a cloaca.
      The article was a bit quiet about the fact it's possible to clean the anus out - a rather obvious step in the process which heteros don't think about for some bizarre reason. A penis or vagina which isn't cleaned is also rather revolting. It's not unusual to find loo roll stuck in the labia majora, for example.
      Of course as a lesbian I'm only talking about anal sex in theory.
      Meanwhile I think we should club together to get the fake Magna Carta a present:

  2. Pat, you definitely need to see a psychiatrist or psychotherapist as soon as possible. You are an abomination. Your supposed motto "The memory of Christ is both sacred and subversive" is no longer appropriate. Your sickening, morally perverted, pornographic obsession with sex is repugnant. God bless and help those men you "ordain"...Your family must be ashamed and embarrassed with you behaving like an adolescent. Pat, grow up and be a real man.

    2. MMM @ 11.13 - I completely agree with the content and tone of all you said Michael. Pat, the blog performs a real service at times but please, as MMM suggests so well, have a think about where we are going. The issue of the sexual practices of those ordained or wishing to be is an absolutely solid issue we need to discuss and consider, but sexual practice in itself, whilst important, is maybe better suited to another platform?

  6. I think that though anal sex may be more common (or people less inhibited to disclose?) it is a important to mention that it is most certainly not without its risks and these are explained to patients in the surgery when they may present with problems eventually. It is best that at least people--particularly females (who are more susceptible to problems resulting) make informed choices if they decide on it. In some patients, there is faecal incontinence at quite an early stage, in life and increased risk of bowel cancers and the female may experience prolapse which requires surgery. Most people are aware of HIV increased risk but there are many other virus infections which are increasingly difficult to overcome and antibiotics cannot deal with a virus as a virus quickly multiplies in a way which is outside the way in which the antibiotics work. That is all I am prepared to write here as there are very many studies which people can read online for themselves if they so wish. I felt that these risks should be discussed so that a wrong impression wasn't given to readers who ideally have a duty to inform themselves properly before engaging in any behaviour.

      Anon @ 01:29: An intelligent informative comment for those who may be interested in the practice. Thank you, ....on their behalf.

      In relation to this blog, I have neither interest in the practice, nor in reading about it or other peoples' practices in the context of this blog. In fact I couldn't even be bothered reading beyond the first few lines, for as I've said previously, I've now become utterly bored with this blog's continual focus on sex. I find the sensible informative comments interesting, but inwardly groan at many of the tit-for-tat, throwaway or titillating contributions.
      I can assure that I am neither prudish nor inexperienced in the matter of human relationships. There's copious information elsewhere on the internet to pursue study of sexual matters for anyone so inclined.

      The parallelism is plain for all to see.

      Person A whose personal crusade is to cut down on teenage sexual activity, uses a vaccine scare to do so. Apologises later.

      Person B who is opposed to anal sexual action uses a series of medical scares to do so.

    7. The blog here presents itself as a medium in which people can give their truthful opinion based on real knowledge and experience.. That's why we should respect and give accreditation to valuable posters who are generous enough to share their expertise with us.
      We may not like what we hear. We may wish to shut our ears in denial but I do believe we should be grateful and sensible enough to recognise the medical truth when we are allowed an insight into it.
      This is why the info. post up at 1.29 was so relevant and so valuable.( We have no way of knowing who was helped by posts such as that but hopefully the person who really needed that important info. read it and was guided to avoid or understand the potential difficulties. Others will read, reject, gloss over, dismiss or deride but that's because they are not ready to hear and understand yet - - maybe not ever. That, however, is their loss and not the poster's responsibility)

  7. A straight friend tells me that he likes anal sex with a woman because the vagina gets loose after too much action, whereas the anus and its muscles are much tighter and give greater pleasure to his penis. Of course, it does help to douche beforehand. That avoids any mess.

    2. Usually excruciatingly painful for females and hated except for a few exceptions. These would tend to be women who are scared the man will seek a new partner if they don't grit their teeth and comply and pretend that they are fine with it. In counselling, we enable women to realise that it's OK and important to refuse things with which they are clearly uncomfortable and forcing is a form of abuse.

      Pat, I don't agree with your assertion that those now sick and sore of your continuing obsession with sexual matters seek to censor your blog.
      I'm coming to a view, that with respect to your apparent obsession with sexual matters, your refusal to even acknowledge concerns being expressed indicates a righteous intolerance of views other than your own.
      You've had a long history of disagreement with the RC church, and I'm sure there has been much fault on both sides, and I'd say predominantly on the hierarchy's side. But I suspect your strong minded stubborn personality will not have endeared you where differences of opinion arose. In some of those occasions you may have found it necessary to take a strong stance on matters of principle and for that many of us admire your obvious effort and concerns for the weak and defenceless.
      However on the matter at hand, despite no matter of imperative principle involved, you seem hell bent on continuing an incessant obsessive focus on sex almost to the exclusion of other matters equally relevant to highlighting the hypocritical practices and behaviour of the RC church hierarchy and perhaps a significant proportion of its ministers.
      At the temple of Apollo in Delphi a guide once pointed out an inscription, giving a translation which I believe is appropriate:
      "All things in moderation"

  29. THE IRISH COLLEGE


    The Irish College rumpus from 2001 is well known. The two lads, Xxx "give it to me Xxxxx" and Xxxxx "tooler" Xxxxxx were put out to pasture for a few months and then ordained. Clearly, their bishops knew all about this and decided to ordain them. Maybe they both emerged from this phase?

    The deceased Cardinal Connell was a lot more worldly wise than many might think. He knew what was going on in Dublin. It's true that he was told about Xxx and Xxxxx by the D&C stasi at the Irish College. To be fair to him, he was probably embarrassed hearing it and didn't want to meddle and interfere over the rector's head. But he was told! Years ago one of his priests in Dublin who wanted to leave the priesthood because he had met a man, told Des, who asked him why he couldn't just continue quietly, because he was a valuable good priest. When our friend protested, Connell said that he knew that lots of Dublin priests were up to all sorts of things and why couldn't our good young priest just live his double life as long as no one else knew.

    1. If this is true about Connell, it is disgraceful.

    2. Yes, it's true. I was a seminarian at the Irish College back then. We were impressed by tge cardinal's orthodoxy and his stands against secueularism. One of our older fellow students from Armagh advised us to go to the cardinal about the filthy homo sex goings on. I have to say I was so saddened when he didn't act on our information. I didn't stay at the college like ng after that.

    4. Pat go easy on poor Connell. Dont speak ill of the dead. He was God's holy anointed, just like you, anointed with holy chrism. I remember tge cardinal standing up for the authority of Christ and his holy Church when he preached at the Irish College. He had no time for accommodation with secular democratic governments. He was a great defender of the liberty of the Church and its authority. He told us, and you wouldnt find many bishops who would, that we didnt have to obey any laws of the state that went against church teaching. A real teacher of the faith. He is missed.

    5. Leave the Cardinal alone. Who are we to judge? I'm sure he had good reasons not to interfere in the Irish College sex scandal. He wasn't a fool. He would have experience of students at UCD and he probably thought this was either malicious gossip or a phase the lads were going through. Surely not a hanging offence? Where's the mercy on this blog?

    6. Gud riddance to that irish college stasi. I think most of them left disillusioned apart from that old fart in armagh, but the D&C ones are gone. Me thinks they had their own issues.

    7. 19:28, and he oughtbto have added that we needn't obey any Church laws that go against Christ's teaching, like canon laws that prohibited the disclosure of sexual, and other criminal offences.

    8. What nonsense. Pat is not anyone's holy anointed. He's a heretic bishop.

      Delete
    9. And where's the charity and justice, 19:34?

      It seems Connell looked the other way, a wonderful tradition in the Church, especially among senior clerics.

      Stop making excuses for the man. You sound pathetic!

      Delete
    10. What about charity and justice you twat.The charity was in the cardinal's merciful attitude and the justice was left to the appropriate authorities to dispense. It wasnt for the cardinal to dispense justice in this case. He was not the ordinary of either lad or responsible for their training. So stick that in your ugly pipe Magma!

    11. Pat is not a heretical bishop. He might be a schismatic. But he is validly ordained. So in Roman eyes he is valid but illicit!

    12. Magma farta, you seem to have your knife in Connell. What did he ever do to you?

      Delete
    13. 20:43, looking the other way on such a serioys matter is neither charitable nor merciful, but a cowardly ommission of justice.

  32. Bishop Pat, you are getting my da, Magnus, into awful bother with my ma, Maggie. With all these other 'Magna Cartas' posting comments, she thinks the old fool 'put it about a bit' too much when he was younger. The rows between them are terrible, so they are. Vodka bottles (empty ones, mind; they aren't that stupid) are flying all over the place. There's now more glass in their wee house than in the whole palace of Versailles!

    1. Sure your aul ma and da, Uncle Magnus and Aunt Maggie, are never done fighting. Been at each other’s throats for years. That’s why you turned out so querulous. They must be some age now all the same given the age you are. Fair play to them to be able to still lob a bottle. Haven’t seen any of the clan this 40 odd years since I moved down under.

      Your cousin,

    2. Oh I'm so glad to hear that, Magna. I really didn't think your dad would get parole after what he did. Glad to see I was wrong.

    3. Magnanimous Carta. Hmmm.

      Are you related to Magnificent Carta by any chance? Or a Magnolia Carta I once knew some years back?

  33. Pat, have you lost your mind that you think this is a holy and healthy topic to cover on your blog??? I thought you could go no lower but discover you can. Is this really at all helpful to those following the teachings of the Catholic Church? You are an abomination.

  34. I feared this might happen but this blog is now totally dominated and taken over by MC. It’s no longer bearable to read, frustrating and all so pointless. Can’t cope with it anymore.

      Stay strong, and please ignore, just don’t reply to any of them
      Shame on you Pat for allowing these clones to destroy what used to be a great blog.
      And the subject of your blog today is the work of the devil
      I don’t know how your blog will survive after the slurry of today

    3. 19:55, yes, that thought had occurred to me. Thank you.

    4. Magna is big enough and ugly enough to cope with a bit of competition and friendly rivalry, hysteric at 19:55. Go and have a wee lie down. You’ll be alright later.

    5. @19:55
      Thank you for your concern. Rest assured that anybody pretending to be me will never quite achieve my bon ton. Far from a tactic to see me off I would see it as a compliment and an indication that I should continue to set an example for years to come.

    6. I hope they are. I've long thought Magna Carta's behaviour here could only be intended to ruin any credibility this blog may have, but Pat wont listen. Now wait for the stream of abuse I'll get.

    Pat, I've just done a quick trawl of today's comments as you appear to place value on your numerical count above. Of the 114 you refer to, in respect of views on the blog subject matter, I've
    taken 73 to be neutral: 19 to be unrelated, and 21 expressing negative views on the appropriateness of the subject matter for this blog.
    And of the 114, 13 were actually by you.
    Don't you think this is worth considering?

    1. Would you ever shut your gob 23:42! We are not stupid. The “original” MC is in blue and the new one is in black. Simples.

      Many of us are enjoying the new “MC black” - he/she is much nicer and funnier than “MC blue”.

      So if you don’t like sling your hook and good riddance.

  42. There is something to be said for Pat’s editorial line. If heterosexual anal sex is practised, in both directions, as it seemingly is, is it not possible, and beneficial, to discuss it in a rational way. It’s clearly not a recent arrival in human sociological and anthropological terms.

    Is it a good idea to categorise some subjects as taboo?

  43. I remember from my days in the RAF (in the relatively innocent sixties), a doctor lecturing us about the avoidance of STD's, before we went on an eastern posting. He said that nature, which was usually so right about everything, had astonishingly placed the 'playground' next to the 'sewage works' which created serious hazards. And he wasn't even talking about sodomy but natural intercourse with unhygienic women! Those who do, especially with many, risk their own and others' health but then it is unreasonable today that anyone can be expected to deny themselves any potential pleasure whatever the risk.

    I believe that a proctologist is the specialist who deals mainly with homosexuals and the predictable and horrible results of their unnatural 'doings' (adult nappies being the least of it) . Oddly, their practices seem to be almost entirely restricted to homosexuals. This is presumably because heterosexual women don't do 'it' with twenty strangers a week.

    If you want to know how I know so much about it, look at the blog of Joseph Sciambra a reformed Catholic homosexual who gives insights into the physical horrors that accompanied his 'lifestyle' and nearly killed him.

  44. I agree with this statement "You need to get out more if you think hetero women don't have anal sex."
