10 Surprising Benefits of Anal Sex You had No Idea About

Benefits-of-Anal-Sex

If you’re feeling leery about whether or not you want to dive into the exciting world of anal sex, check out these surprising benefits of anal sex.

Anal sex isn’t for everyone. Not surprisingly, there are many more men interested in this sexual act than there are women–for a lot of reasons. But I think the biggest reason women tend to avoid it is because they might not know about all of the surprising benefits.

I know “beneficial” isn’t the first word that pops into your mind when thinking about getting it on via the backdoor. However, there are a lot of misconceptions about anal sex that mark it as kind of taboo, dirty, and something only “sluts” do.

Surprising benefits of anal sex

Many people only find anal sex distasteful, due to the region in which it happens. They might feel unclean and assume their partner won’t have a good time, due to some rather unfortunate circumstances that sometimes happen. Some women even feel insecure or nervous about it.

Like I said before, it’s not for everyone, but I truly believe everyone should try it once. And if you find any of these benefits intriguing, try it a bunch more times! Here are some surprising benefits of anal sex that you should be reaping.

#1 Keeps your immune system in great shape. Sex in general is fantastic for your health. It boosts your immune system by keeping you in shape, because of the exercise involved, and introduces your antibodies to all sorts of different things it can ramp up and keep in check.

#2 Clears you out. As much as people really don’t like to discuss their bowel movements, it is important to mention that anal sex does a great job of clearing you out—something that is extremely helpful in keeping you healthy. [Try: Does anal sex have to be painful? The ass lover’s guide]

Due to all the increased activity in that region and blood flow down there, it helps your bowels get moving and makes it much easier to pass them. But don’t worry! This will NOT happen during the actual act. Hopefully.

#3 Is generally more pleasurable for the men. Many men find anal sex more pleasurable than vaginal sex because the anus is tighter than the vagina. And since men get off due to the pressure on their member, it’s no wonder that a tighter entrance would feel better.

But that’s not the only reason they tend to like it more. It also gives them a sense of accomplishment, makes them feel a little rebellious, and gives them a feeling of being powerful and dominant—something that feeds their primal instincts. [Check out: What do men like in bed?]

#4 Is really pleasurable for the women. The anus has an enormous amount of nerve endings, both surrounding it and directly within it. This means that, even though women aren’t being physically pleasured through their vagina, it’s still really pleasing for them.

It’s also really pleasurable, because the G-spot can still be reached when men enter and push against the vaginal wall. So really, women can have orgasms through anal penetration, alone.

#5 Increases intimacy between partners. There is a significant amount of trust that has to be in place before anal sex can happen. Many women are nervous, insecure, and have issues accepting anal sex, due to the physical requirements and reputation it seems to have. [Try: 12 easy ways to keep intimacy alive in a relationship]

Not only that, but it also creates a closeness, because both partners are getting their needs met. If the man wants to experiment with anal sex and the woman complies, he feels closer to her, knowing she is doing something for his pleasure.

#6 Eliminates fear of pregnancy. You cannot get pregnant through anal sex alone. Unless some sperm somehow comes out of the anus and finds its way into the vagina, you will not get pregnant. This eases tension that is sometimes felt between two people during sex.

Without that tension, people are freer to enjoy themselves and men get to finish inside women—something that they all love to do. It’s a win-win for everyone, really. [Check out: Do you hate using condoms?]

#7 Semen benefits. Semen plasma has a ridiculous amount of benefits to it. When a man finishes inside a woman, it can affect her in a lot of ways. Usually, this happens through the vagina. However, newer research has shown that semen exuded in the anus has the same effects.

Some common benefits of sperm are as follows: natural anxiety reducer, anti-depressant, improves quality of sleep, increases energy, natural pain reducer, improves mental alertness, and has the ability to increase a woman’s libido.

#8 Increases sexual diversity. If you feel like your sex life has been rather boring, anal sex will certainly spice things up a bit! It’s a perfect way to introduce something new into your sex life that the two of you have never tried before. [Try: How to spice up your sex life in 30 sexy ways]

This is extremely helpful in a long-term relationship when you feel like you’re “used to” your partner. It can make things fun and new again!

#9 Fantastic alternative to period sex. Some girls just don’t want to have sex during their period. Maybe they don’t like it, their partner doesn’t like it, or they don’t want to deal with the mess. Either way, anal sex offers a great alternative to sex when you’re on your period. [Check out: The guide to having sex on your period]

By taking the sexual activities to the back, you are keeping the period away from everything, so you don’t have to deal with it at all.

#10 It’s exciting! It really is. It’s not something that people do a lot and it’s an exciting new thing that you can bring to your relationship. It’ll have both of you feeling like young teenagers engaging in sexual activities for the first time. Talk about reminiscing!

    I was 17. My boyfriend at that time had just broken up with me in a really horribly and dickish way. I wanted to give him the fu*k of his life time so he’d know what he was missing for the rest of his life. We agreed to meet up at his house to “talk things over, clear stuff up, and get closure”. I had prepared by showering and shaving myself bare. I had incredibly hot lingerie on and everything. When I got there, I ask him straight up, “Do you want to have break up sex”. Goodness knows he was elated (all 17/18 year guys are). So first I smoked him up a bit so every sensation would be amplified and proceeded to go down on him taking things nice and slow and going over every inch and hot spot for him. I whipped out a vibrating cock ring on him then just to amp things up. By this point, he was basically a slobbering, incapacitated, mumbling mound of nerves. I got up on him (he was sitting on the couch) and proceeded to slam myself down on him hard the way he liked it, but I kept my hand on his balls to monitor his progress. Whenever there was a bit of tightening, I’d pull back and let him go down a bit. He was pawing me and begging me insanely to let him cum, it was a fantastic power trip. He was too high and helpless to force me to do anything though so I just kept doing my thing. When I decided I was getting tired of the gig, I pulled out a vibrator and a bottle of lube from my purse. I lubed myself up, switched on the vibrator and started playing with myself in front of him. I ever so slowly worked it into my ass, and when I got it in and it wasn’t going anywhere, I mounted him again and gave him a couple of strokes. Then I got up, cleaned off the vibrator thoroughly, and bent over and slid his dick into my ass. It hurt like crazy, but it was worth it in the long term. I put the vibrator up my vagina and he began thrusting while I moved the vibrator in and out of me. Right before he came, I tugged his balls (he looved this move) and came like a rocket. It was actually pretty disgusting how much cum there was :/ After he finished, he just sat on the couch not moving and moaning for a really long time. His body kept jerking for a while afterwards. I got up, cleaned myself up, got dressed, and breezed the f*ck out of there. He called me consistently for the next year asking if I wanted to be his fu*k buddy. I always told him no, and next time he breaks up with a girl, not to be such a prick about it, because maybe then I would have agreed.

    Hey! Your narrow definition of anal sex doesn’t sit well with me (I can’t decide whether that’s punny).
    Women can perform anal sex on men, too. Just sayin’…
