Teen Vogue is a magazine for teenage girls.
These are actual quotes from Teen Vogue’s recent article on anal sex.
- “It’s important that we talk about all kinds of sex because not everyone is having, or wants to have, “penis in the vagina” sex. If you do have “penis in the vagina” sex and are curious about something else, or are finding that that type of sex is not for you and you’d like to explore other options, it’s helpful to know the facts.”
- “This is anal 101, for teens, beginners, and all inquisitive folk.”
- “Anal sex, though often stigmatized, is a perfectly natural way to engage in sexual activity. … So if you’re a little worried about trying it or are having trouble understanding the appeal, just know that it isn’t weird or gross.”
- “The anus is full of nerve endings that, for some people, feel awesome when stimulated. The opening of the butthole is where the most nerves are, so you don’t have to put anything very far up there (if you don’t want to) for it to feel good.”
- “Anal sex, like any kind of sex, can be perfectly safe if you take the correct precautions.”
- “Anal sex can feel great, which is why many people include it as a regular part of their sex life.”
- “Just because you have a vagina does not mean anal is off-limits. Many vagina owners love anal play. You don’t need to have a prostate to enjoy anal sex. For those without a prostate, having your anus stimulated can still be great — remember all those nerve endings are still in the fold here.”
- “It is often described as a feeling of fullness, which can be delightful. Most orgasms stem from the clitoris, including anal orgasms. The clitoris is the epicenter of pleasure for clitoris-owning people. It is the only part of the female anatomy designed specifically for pleasure. For some vagina owners, anal sex can stimulate the internal clitoris, which is highly pleasurable.”
- “You need to start slowly. The anus is a muscle that needs to be worked up to having larger objects inserted. Start with finger or a small (I do mean v. small) butt plug and either warm yourself up or have a partner help. To do this, lube up your finger or toy and gently massage the anus. As you feel more aroused and comfortable, work the object inside. Gently move it around to loosen up the area.”
- “The anus does not naturally lubricate the way a vagina does.”
- “Yes, you will come in contact with some fecal matter. You are entering a butthole. It is where poop comes out. Expecting to do anal play and see zero poop isn’t particularly realistic. It’s NOT a big deal. Everyone poops. Everyone has a butt.”
