Dislike of anal sex


I've tried it several times and I still find it extremely painful. I get a tearing sensation and it hurts right up into my stomach. My friends have told me that it will get better with time but it hasn't. I'm still in agony every time even with lube!
Viv, 29, receptionist, Reading

I hate anal sex, I find it dirty and degrading. And unless you're going to wash thoroughly before and after, which isn't very practical, it's not very hygienic, is it?
Claire, 24, student, Cheltenham

It's not really my thing. I've done it a few times but I could quite easily go without it! I get no pleasure out of it and I don't understand how some girls can reach orgasm this way.
Gemma, 26, photographer, Stoke-on-trent

I've never tried it but the idea of it disgusts me. The thought of my boyfriend touching me there makes me feel ashamed. Plus, I've heard it's very painful so it really doesn't appeal to me!
Louise, 26, student, Basingstoke

I'm completely opposed to this! As far as I'm concerned there is no love up the bum. It's just male domination and, to be perfectly honest, it makes me feel like I'm about to **** myself.
Carol, 35, artist, Chesterfield
