Anal intercourse generally pertains to intercourse where the penis is inserted into the anus for sexual pleasure. It is a loose term and can also mean other sex acts that involve the anus. This includes fingering the anus, rimming, and using sex toys to penetrate the anus. Anal intercourse was associated with gay sex in the past. It has since crossed over and is also practiced by heterosexuals.
More About Anal Intercourse
Many claim that anal intercourse can lead to better orgasms in men because it stimulates the prostate. In women, it may indirectly stimulate the clitoris and the G-spot. Thus, its practice has increased despite bias against it. However, it comes with risks of infection, tearing, and sexually transmitted diseases. Because the rectum does not naturally lubricate, always use a water-based lubricant. Condoms are also requisite, even when using other insertable items, like sex toys.
