It is thought that about 10 per cent of heterosexual couples have anal intercourse as a regular feature of their lovemaking. In absolute numbers, it is hypothesized that more heterosexual couples have anal sex than homosexual couples.[6]

Simple English

Anal sex is a sex act performed on the anus. Anal sex can involve a penis inserted in the anus, oral stimulation of the anus, using fingers for penetration and using different objects for stimulation.

File:Édouard-Henri Avril (18).jpg
19th-century erotic interpretation of Hadrian and Antinous in Egypt, by Paul Avril

Overview

The anus is a part of the body that is tight and cannot lubricate itself. Because of this, a person should be careful when inserting something without damaging the walls of this organ.

For a man, pleasure comes from the stimulation of prostate that is found near the anus. Both men and women can get pleasure because the anus has lots of nerve endings.
