Thanks Octavia for a sensible article on what is far too often an overly emotion-laden topic. In my experience about 40% of women ultimately enjoy anal sex on a regular or occasional basis, so it’s likely always a (barely) minority pleasure but if only people could stop imposing their personal ideas of “normal” on everyone else then everyone would be better off, and perhaps also more likely to experiment from time to time to extend their repertoire of pleasures.

Anyone who enjoys my articles here on Medium may be interested in my books Why Democracy Failed and The Praying Ape, both available from Amazon.
