Anal sex, once considered taboo, is not just for the impulsive anymore, and anal intercourse is becoming more common in bedchambers across the world. People who engage in anal sex now have plenty to say about the intense pleasure and sensation they experience when engaging in this type of sexual activity. While anal intercourse may not be for everybody, for those that are willing to give it a try the first question they often have is, what does it feel like?
What Does Anal Sex Feel Like for Men?
Men experience anal sex somewhat differently than women. Because men have a walnut-shaped gland called a prostate gland, located at about 5 centimeters in the rectum, pressure against this gland acts much like a G-spot in women. It intensifies the pleasure for men, leading to more powerful ejaculations. For their partner, penetrating the anus is much tighter than a vagina, and because the sphincter muscles act like a vise, this increases the incredible pleasure for them as well.
What Men Say About This
"Anal sex was great for me! At least it was not what I expected. Anal sex is much different from vaginal sex and lucky for me, my partner was very comfortable with it. As long as you use lots of lube, the experience is very gratifying and intense."- Paul, 31
"What does anal sex feel like? Really good! For both of us the biggest difference is what you would normally expect, it’s a lot tighter. You will need to go slower at first over a longer period of time. I have noticed that my partner’s breathing becomes deeper, and overall the experience is very intense!" - David, 27
"It is incredible, although it takes some time for your body to adjust. When it does, you get a sense of fullness that is very gratifying. The act of being touched inside feels wicked, if not transcendent." - Allen, 22
"It feels like my whole body has to relax in order to accommodate it, while feeling perfectly normal at the same time." - Chuck, 26
"My wife now allows me to have anal sex with her, and I love it. After many years of marriage, anal sex is most likely the thing that makes our intimacy the strongest." - Greg, 42
What Does Anal Sex Feel Like for Women?
Anal intercourse is enjoyed by women because of the amazing feeling. The sensation is totally different from regular sex. Because it's not her vagina, the feeling is alien yet pleasurable at the same time. This is because of the many nerve endings around the anus, making it very sensitive and intriguing. This kind of stimulation can create intense pleasure, and even lead to orgasms with some women. But be prepared that the first few tries may not be that comfortable and some may experience pain because of the stretching.
What Women Say About This
"Anal intercourse is more intense for me, and it activates all my pleasurable nerve endings. I also find that I can achieve an orgasm through anal sex than with traditional vaginal sex. When having anal sex 'doggy style' or bent over while standing, I am able to receive really orgasmic G-spot stimulation from anal intercourse. I love exposing myself in this way because anal sex feels sexy, slippery, and decadent at the same time using so much lube." - Molly, 28
"For me, anal sex feels like a sensory overload. As long as I concentrate on relaxing, it can feel real good. At first I was doing it all wrong and it felt awful. You have to use a lot of lube, and the first couple of times will feel uncomfortable until you get used to it. After a few times you will feel more comfortable and begin to enjoy how pleasurable anal sex can be." - Anne, 27
"What does anal sex feel like? You know how you feel when you really, really have to go the bathroom, because you feel like you are just going to explode? I mean you do not even want to breathe, cough, or sneeze, for fear of what might happen back there! Even with lube the uneasy feelings I get just turn me off. It’s definitely not for me." - Ashley, 30
"It depends on my partner. Anal intercourse alone is only 'OK', but when it is coupled with clitoral and vaginal stimulation it becomes a ‘WOW” sensation. With every stroke and rub, my climax becomes 10 times stronger. The trick is to find a partner who knows how to do it correctly. Otherwise, on its own just feels like something sliding along the sphincter. Nothing amazing, but nothing horrible or painful.” - Jennifer, 35
"The first time I tried anal sex, it felt really bad. The second time we tried using more lube, but it still felt like something I shouldn’t be doing. After a few more times, I just told my partner I didn’t like it. Although I have some friends who tell me they love it, for me it never feels comfortable or pleasurable and I will not try it again." - Veronica, 28
"It is really intense! While I have not decided whether it’s a good intense or a bad intense, it is definitely intense. During anal sex, I can feel every inch of my partner sliding in and out of me. I can't say the same about vaginal sex, there is a difference. Because it is so intense, I try to limit the amount of times I do it. I sometimes fear that I will not have control of myself and will have an accident, and that is obviously everyone’s biggest fear as it relates to anal intercourse." - Alissa, 29
