Is it just men that seem to like anal sex or do women too?

Panthering Fri 11-Oct-13 06:12:04

I am on a bit of a quest.....

I really love anal sex and it gives me a totally different orgasm to other types.... However I feel I am the only woman on the planet that does...?

All my girlfriends say they maybe have tried it/ don't like it/ partner doesn't like it etc which left me thinking is it just me.... Am I just a bit wierd in my tastes?

So I'd love to know what people think about this?

It makes sense to me as there is so much you can do with it, great if you have a period, problems post childbirth etc....


CogitoErgoSometimes Fri 11-Oct-13 06:16:03

Gosh, is it Friday already... ? Tip. Don't canvass whether your sexual preferences are 'normal'. Sex is an individual thing so, if it works for you, great.

deepfriedsage Fri 11-Oct-13 06:30:13

Yes its Friday.

I think it is in natural, each to their own. I would dump you and think of you as unhygenic and perverted and wonder what mug would let you damage their digestive system.

cupcake78 Fri 11-Oct-13 06:39:11

Some women do, some don't. Some men do, some don't.

cupcake78 Fri 11-Oct-13 06:39:42

Some women do, some don't. Some men do, some don't.

deepfriedsage Fri 11-Oct-13 06:41:53


Yep. Pegging too.

Twiddlebum Fri 11-Oct-13 06:56:15

I can't help but think this is someone hoping to start a viral (a la penis beaker) thread???

deepfriedsage Fri 11-Oct-13 07:00:14

Careful, or you may appear to be out hun t ing.

GuybrushThreepwoodMP Fri 11-Oct-13 07:17:15


Arf at 'so much you can do with it '

Anyway OP I'm really pleased you managed to find the Center Parcs thread while you were doing a search for anal - pure MN gold wink

And FWIW, I agree with Cog.

Some do, some don't-why do you care & feel the need to validate what you like as normal?

If you enjoy it then by all means crack on, just don't expect everyone to share preferences... hmm

JessicaBeatriceFletcher Fri 11-Oct-13 08:39:05

grin Gin, love you for using "crack on" in this particular thread....

elizadofuckall Fri 11-Oct-13 08:40:55

So much you can do with it? confused

Make myself laugh sometimes grin

GuybrushThreepwoodMP Fri 11-Oct-13 08:50:57

Very odd thread. What a strange contribution to Centre Parcs too.

What do you want? Just people's views or are you going for a note explicit conversation?

I live by the rule that it's rude to change lanes without indicating. That's all.

phantomhairpuller Fri 11-Oct-13 08:53:56

What does it matter what other people think?

Yawn confused

mcmooncup Fri 11-Oct-13 08:54:40

Post-child birth, it was the first thing I though of

I hate being cynical at this time of the morning.

mc grin

MrsSchadenfreude Fri 11-Oct-13 08:56:59

"crack on" gringringringrin I see my arse as a one way valve, personally, but each to their own.

Fenton Fri 11-Oct-13 08:58:19

Welcome to MN.

FanjoForTheMammaries Fri 11-Oct-13 09:05:28

Hoping for some juicy tales eh?

FanjoForTheMammaries Fri 11-Oct-13 09:06:19

Do you go to strangers at parties and ask them about anal sex before getting to know them too?

phantomhairpuller Fri 11-Oct-13 09:10:26

grin Fanjo

spence82 Fri 11-Oct-13 11:10:05

Personally I dont like it. I did it with one of my ex gfs a couple of times as she was into it.

I get the impression a lot of men want there oh's to try it as its still slightly taboo.

Lisavarna Fri 11-Oct-13 12:38:44

Yes OP you are so right! Its so handy when i'm having a particularily heavy period, i just go, no probs hun lets just use the other hole!

Oh yeah and after those tears i suffered in childbirth it was such a relief to be able to just revert to anal sex, isnt the body such a wonderful thing, so wonderfully adaptable!


Boosterseattheballcleaner Fri 11-Oct-13 12:54:19

If I'm on my period i just put a towel down i don't ask for a trip up oxo tower.

Do you people have no shame wink

I live by the rule that it's rude to change lanes without indicating. That's all

Ooopppss!!! Water spluttered all over my keyboard.
Love it!

Jan45 Fri 11-Oct-13 15:46:29

Oxo tower, lol, change lanes, lol lol.

CerealMom Fri 11-Oct-13 15:50:09

Who posts stuff like this at 1/4 past 6 in the morning!

Obviously if you're in a different time zone it's ok - it's Friday.

But still, 1/4 past 6...

reelingintheyears Fri 11-Oct-13 15:50:47

OP, where are you?
Mind your keyboard while you crack one out love.

Boosterseattheballcleaner Fri 11-Oct-13 15:58:17

Its ok, OP has gone to the center parcs thread.

They will be at home there.

Also used "As a woman"

as you were.

chickydoo Fri 11-Oct-13 16:03:35


PatoBanton Fri 11-Oct-13 16:03:35

Just imagining the thought process.

<wakes up>
<cor I fancy a bit of how's yer father>

looks around

No women in sight

no sheep either

<I know. I'll PRETEND to be a bird and post on Mumsnet and maybe some actual birds will talk about willies with me>


"There is so much you can do with it" - huh? What does that even mean?

Boosterseattheballcleaner Fri 11-Oct-13 16:04:57

Commonly known as a "Bumder"

BuzzardBirdBloodBath Fri 11-Oct-13 16:05:03

If you put a 'b' in front of 'anal' it spells banal...just like this thread hmm

'as a woman' plus the omission of 'other women' in the thread title :
"Is it just men that seem to like anal sex or do women too?" hmm

like I said earlier, I don't like to be cynical in the mornings, but I really don't mind being a cynic in the afternoon.

arf at cracking one out, reeling

reelingintheyears Fri 11-Oct-13 16:06:08

Very good BBBB grin

reelingintheyears Fri 11-Oct-13 16:07:42

Much easier being a cunt cynic in the arvo, i'd agree with that.

morethanpotatoprints Fri 11-Oct-13 16:10:22

My dh asked a woman if she took it up the shitter once, honestly grin

Well, she was one of these who bloody jumped out at us while we were shopping and started asking personal finance questions. he said he wasn't interested so at the end of her next question he replied with do you take it up the shitter. She replied, thats a bit personal isn't it?
He said, yes so is asking about my finances.
I know I shouldn't but I laughed because the womans face looked like a camel chewing a biscuit grin

Boosterseattheballcleaner Fri 11-Oct-13 16:11:18

put an "ogy" on it and we have an analogy.

Word play Friday get in

Oh panthering, you tease, I'm a girl and I just love banal sex!

There's simply so much you can do with it.

I prefer anual sex. It's quality not quantity.

Boosterseattheballcleaner Fri 11-Oct-13 16:15:27

Alans love anal.

MinnieBar Fri 11-Oct-13 16:15:43

OP you forgot to mention how it's just fabulous as a contraceptive too!

LoopThePoop Fri 11-Oct-13 16:16:29

Morethan grin

Huh! I have an uncle Alan! I never liked him either.

CailinDana Fri 11-Oct-13 16:20:16

Oh yeah op I just love it when my dh gets all pedantic and mmm particular when we dtd. He just has to say "the envelope corners on that sheet are a little askew" to get me going.

BuzzardBirdBloodBath Fri 11-Oct-13 16:22:32

If I were to 'anal'yse this thread I would say there was a little chocolate cake abuse this morning? hmm
"You like that Sara Lee don't you you bad girl?"

Callin- I had to read that a few times before I got it. Doh.
It was funny!

reelingintheyears Fri 11-Oct-13 16:28:25

I think we maybe have to thank the penis virus thread for all this over sharing.

CailinDana Fri 11-Oct-13 16:29:17

My humour generally gets a huh? hmm ahhh smile grin hahaha response.

It was slightly on the subtle side smile

For me I mean. I'm sure everyone else got it fine!

Boosterseattheballcleaner Fri 11-Oct-13 16:35:46

I still don't get it
dons dunce hat

If I may...Cailin is suggesting that she is "hot for anal" retentive sex.

Boosterseattheballcleaner Fri 11-Oct-13 17:30:25


Thanks Thisis

exexpat Fri 11-Oct-13 17:35:06

In the wake of the beaker thread going viral, I think some websites did lists of other 'funny' MN threads, including the CenterParcs one. It may have attracted a certain amount of attention...

CailinDana Fri 11-Oct-13 17:35:11

Strange but true.

str8tothepoint Fri 11-Oct-13 17:35:51

sure your partners not gay and thats why he loves arse

sonlypuppyfat Fri 11-Oct-13 17:38:55

It is beyond disgusting it has one purpose only, not for that

GuybrushThreepwoodMP Fri 11-Oct-13 17:42:30

OP! Come back! I'm like you! After I gave birth last October the first thing I thought about was how convenient it was that I had an anus!

AnyFucker Fri 11-Oct-13 17:43:54

I wish I could "like" Guy's last post grin

Rotterwallah Fri 11-Oct-13 17:45:28

"Post childbirth" shock with these piles

KareninsGirl Fri 11-Oct-13 17:48:48

If you add a c at the beginning, you get 'canal'.

I can't think of a witty link between this word and the OP though, sorry.

mirtzapine Fri 11-Oct-13 18:26:41

like that dirty French channel... canal plus which could be a new one for puntersnet maybe the OP mistook the site they posted on

JustinBsMum Fri 11-Oct-13 18:41:18

All my girlfriends say they maybe have tried it

Maybe, OP??

I think they would know....

KareninsGirl Fri 11-Oct-13 19:38:47

'This thread has 69 messages'


Not anymore!

lifehasafunnywayofhelpinguout Fri 11-Oct-13 19:42:12

I'm not knocking anal sex as I've never tried it and I have no intentions of either but if you enjoy then that's fine. xxx

Bumpotato Fri 11-Oct-13 22:21:40

Gave it up, it made my eyes water.

Mojavewonderer Sat 12-Oct-13 09:14:42

I love it too and many of my friends do too so you are certainly not alone ;)

Mojavewonderer Sat 12-Oct-13 09:22:18

Ohhh I misread the op you meant anal sex not annual sex ;)
I would rather not discuss thank you very much ;)

SnookyPooky Sat 12-Oct-13 09:43:04

No, it's a one way street.

cherryblossoming Sat 12-Oct-13 10:06:46

I wish I did not read this thread. I have just opened Parenting section and read "Ante-anal clubs" instead of "Ante-natal clubs". grin

cherryblossoming Sat 12-Oct-13 10:08:26

Anteanal/postanal depression grin

GuybrushThreepwoodMP Sat 12-Oct-13 10:22:35


Golferman Sat 12-Oct-13 13:39:58

It can be fun but not particularly attractive when your knob comes out looking like a half-melted Magnum...

Wideboy Sat 12-Oct-13 14:54:35

We had to discontinue the practice when my wife had a panproctectomy.

Wideboy Sat 12-Oct-13 15:00:45

No, not a panproctectomy - a panproctocolectomy.

FanjoForTheMammaries Sat 12-Oct-13 15:18:09

Was that at same time as your lobotomy

UriGHOULer Sat 12-Oct-13 15:34:11

Golferman wouldn't you say that a shitty knob was..(wait for it...)....
par for the course ??

GhastlyMoiraKroesig Sat 12-Oct-13 15:51:08

Where do all you lot spring from?

Faaaack off back to your Renault Megane forums or from whence you came. And fiddle with your own chalconts if you want some banal/anal fun.

SoleSource Sat 12-Oct-13 17:32:02

Another banal anal thread yawn

Strumpetron Sun 13-Oct-13 01:21:41

Done properly, it's amazing.

joanofarchitrave Sun 13-Oct-13 01:37:10

I absolutely hate it but of course when I have my period I think first about what my husband needs, and that obviously is an orifice that isn't bleeding. Or not beforehand, anyway.

coldwinter Sun 13-Oct-13 02:21:51

Joan - what about you and what you need?

coldwinter Sun 13-Oct-13 02:23:14

OP - men have a prostate gland that is placed so that anal sex is very sexually stimulating to them. Women are sexually stimulated by their clitoris. So men's bodies are actually designed to enjoy being penetrated for anal sex, more than women's

brokenhearted55 Sun 13-Oct-13 02:29:32

Joan period sex isn't that bad. I've had amazing orgasms during it.

Tips: stay on your back, use a condom and a towel.

joanofarchitrave Sun 13-Oct-13 02:45:41

oh sorry that was meant to be a joky response to the OP!

Thants Sun 13-Oct-13 02:49:14

Joanofarch your husband doesn't need sex, your periods should not be an inconvenience to him. If you don't like anal sex don't do it! You are a person not an orifice. Only have sex when you want to, it should be about mutual pleasure.

Swissmissmimi Tue 22-Oct-13 19:19:26

Some women do enjoy anal sex. I tried it before, hated it, but then tried it with my new partner and enjoy it occasionally.

It is a different feeling and mostly i prefer "normal" sex, but it can be nice to spice things up. Each to their own, I say.

Making out people are deviant because of trying different things is a bit small minded in my opinion. I am not a troll, a weirdo or anything else....just open to different things. My OH doesn't push me to do it, in fact I tend to suggest it.

Period bumsex?! What about period poo? Not a good idea

Wellwobbly Tue 22-Oct-13 19:41:03


Hopefully MNHQ will come along and delete this

Swissmissmimi Tue 22-Oct-13 19:50:05

Why delete it? It's an open forum? I'm a mummy and I'm just giving an honest opinion? Where I live it's not illegal....

ColderThanAWitchsTitty Tue 22-Oct-13 20:11:42

I was petrified of pooing post child birth. I'd have ripped dh's balls off and shoved them up his bum if he thought anal was a really great thing to suggest then..

Me thinks you have got some hairy poo stained hands op

BuzzardBirdBloodBath Sat 26-Oct-13 20:22:55

I guess if your dh has an I credibly small penis it wouldn't be much of a problem hmm?

Why would the penis need to be incredibly small? As long as its the the size of a poo it'll fit.

ColderThanAWitchsTitty Sat 26-Oct-13 20:55:44

I can't believe 4 people couldn't see Joan was joking!

ThingsThatMakeYouGoHmmmmmmmmm Sat 26-Oct-13 22:15:58

We keep a pint glass of swarfega on the bedside cabinet, OP. I dunk right after the deed, while DP goes for an explosive poo....... grin

NachoAddict Sat 26-Oct-13 22:33:29

I trump loud enough in the mornings without having my bum stretched to an echo-y cavern.

Hopasholic Sat 26-Oct-13 22:34:27

Wow, all the journos and hairy handers are out in force hmm
There's some verrrry odd threads about at the moment.

Swingers, bum lickers & up the shitters grin

BelaLugosisShed Sat 26-Oct-13 22:38:10

People having bum sex is a sin and it makes the baby cheesus cry - fact.

PrincessFlirtyPants Sat 26-Oct-13 22:48:53

People having bum sex is a sin and it makes the baby cheesus cry - fact.

Very true, I order everyone to stop it immediately. You dirty little buggers.

amothersplaceisinthewrong Sat 26-Oct-13 22:51:11

You are sure to go blind and end up in hell...

KittyFucker Sat 26-Oct-13 22:55:14

This is SO going to get deleted soon. Justiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine!

(But why is it that when these sorts of threads go, it's because they're "full of troll hunting" rather than 'clearly started by a half witted immature onanist troll'?)

Hopasholic Sat 26-Oct-13 23:46:49

Can we just all call the op a cunt?

Maybe that'll get their attention?

Oh, go on then......


KittyFucker Sun 27-Oct-13 20:22:42

Cunty cunt.

Hopasholic Sun 27-Oct-13 21:09:04

Can't believe this is still here! Are MNHQ drowning in gin after the events this week?

Op you're literally a wanker.

Will that do it??????

ForalltheSaints Mon 21-Apr-14 13:43:12

Not all men like it. I don't for one.

usualsuspectt Mon 21-Apr-14 13:46:40

Did you go searching for Anal sex threads, ForalltheSaints?

6 months old zombie thread about anal sex?

It's Monday afternoon, good grief!

SirRaymondClench Mon 21-Apr-14 16:00:02

Reading the OP I am baffled as to how one gets an orgasm through anal sex? confused

Fairenuff Mon 21-Apr-14 16:43:26

Did you go searching for Anal sex threads, ForalltheSaints?

Rumbled blush grin

DustBunnyFarmer Mon 21-Apr-14 16:44:39

Given the high probability of the OP being a hairy handed onanist, I think that should be self evident.

stayanotherday Mon 21-Apr-14 20:10:41

Or is this a victorian thread? They're everywhere!

leedsgirl231 Tue 22-Apr-14 16:36:24

I love it, I really want to try pegging. I love anal play! on both of us smile

dragonsandfairies Tue 22-Apr-14 20:01:10

what on earth is pegging?

dragonsandfairies Tue 22-Apr-14 20:07:49

it's ok, i googled :D

chaseface Tue 22-Apr-14 20:14:31

I totally misunderstood would pegging was with a previous partner. My instinct said nipple clamps... Not at all.

Val007 Tue 22-Apr-14 22:14:54

Be honest - if you were a woman and you did have enjoyable anal sex at least once in your life, you would have NEVER asked this question. ;-)

Hormonalhell Tue 22-Apr-14 22:30:59

I do with boyfriend which is weird cod I've never liked it with anyone else! I love any kind of sex with him though cos we are very much in love smile

SJC2014 Tue 22-Apr-14 23:07:55

What is this centerparcs thread?!! I want to see it!!

That post was sooo written by a Pervy man sat playing with his 1 inch wonder over all these horny mums.. "Shudders"

It can be a 2-way thing but its not for everyone.
