Although you might laugh at the thought that some people think anal is reserved for male inmates, myths about anal sex are prevalent. And that's a problem for people who are inclined to try some backdoor action. If you've tried it once or twice and it hasn't worked for you; don't despair. It gets better.
Think about it. Wasn't vaginal intercourse (or oral sex) awkward or even painful the first couple times? So, doesn't it reason that the same hold true for anal? With a thoughtful (and gentle) partner, some yoga classes to relax the mind and body, and lube made especially for anal sex (there is even a lube that has desensitizing ingredients, if you're a newbie) you might find that backdoor entry is not only worth giving another try, but something you might add into your boudoir routine.
Anal orgasms exist for women, and according to Refinery 29, you don't need a prostate to have an anal orgasm — just an anus. In many ways, I like to think of the butt as an equal opportunity orifice. Your body is designed to climax from sensations in your butt hole. According to Scarleteen, the anus is a mucocutaneous part of the body, meaning that because the skin is comprised of mucosa and cutaneous tissue, it can give you the feels. In other words, your butt hole is an erogenous zone filled with tons of nerve endings that can lead to sexual arousal and climax. With that in mind, I'd like to debunk the following myths about anal sex.
