Anal Sex More Popular Than Expected Among Heterosexual Couples
Anal intercourse among heterosexual couples under the age of 45 is on the rise in the the United States, according to a Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report.
The report, entitled “Sexual Behavior, Sexual Attraction and Sexual Identity in the United States polled thousands of people aged 15 to 44 from 2006 to 2008. The study revealed that 44% of heterosexual men and 36% of heterosexual women admitted to engaging in anal sex at some point in their lives. It is possible that the rates for heterosexual men and women engaging in anal sex is slighting higher in 2012 due to this upward trend.
The rise in popularity of anal intercourse, according to a piece by Pasadena College Gender Studies Professor Hugo Schwyzer, is due to its “frequent appearance in both heterosexual porn and mainstream media as well as an increased pressure from heterosexual male partners.”
Women of generation Y and Z have been slated with expectations of displaying their sexiness at a very young age and are held to standards that previous generations did not endure. Anal intercourse can symbolize both the willingness to please the partner and the persistence to push through potential pain. Anal sex, according to Schwyzer, is the “most selfless of common sexual acts” due to the the amount of pain the recipient can receive during the act. Many sources question the pleasurability of this act for women.
Is this growing popularity of anal intercourse a demonstration of a young woman to prove her devotion to a guy? Is it creating an emphasis placed on a woman’s performance rather than on their own pleasure?
ONE Condoms supports the freedom of expression and the freedom of choice particularly when it comes to sexual behavior and sexual identity. A portion of every ONE Condoms sales goes towards HIV/AIDS prevention efforts at home and abroad.

Do you find that anal sex is both pleasurable for you and your partner and do you think that the popularity of these acts will grow more in the future?
