Young Women at Risk
Anal sex can hurt, that much seems clear. But a new study of British teenagers also reveals a few aspects of this sexual activity that are perhaps more surprising. The researchers interviewed teens ages 16 to 18 from diverse backgrounds, and asked them about their perceptions of different sexual practices, as well as their own experiences. The results showed that most teens' anal sex experiences occurred in a relationship setting, but first experiences with anal sex were rarely under circumstances of mutual exploration of sexual pleasure. Instead, it was mainly men who pushed the women to try anal sex, and men said they felt expected to take this role. Moreover, the teens expected men to find pleasure in anal sex, whereas women were mostly expected to endure the negative aspects of anal sex, such as pain or a damaged reputation. The results also revealed somewhat surprising, and in some cases concerning, aspects of anal sex. However, the findings may not be generalizable to all populations, because they are based on a small study of heterosexual teenagers. Young men in the study appeared to perceive having anal sex as a feat in competition.
A year-old girl will need to use a colostomy bag for the rest of her life after suffering severe injuries while attempting group anal sex. The teenager's debilitating experience is just one of many detailed by experts and educators who say young women are suffering at the hands of their porn-addicted boyfriends. Teen boys and men are developing dangerous attitudes towards sex as a result of their compulsive consumption of hardcore and violent online pornography, experts have warned. Cyber safety expert Susan McLean said many high-school aged girls have suffered injuries trying to replicate porn scenes.
He wanted to try anal sex, and even though the year-old said she was "OK with the idea," she nervously downed several drinks before their lovemaking began. They never did it again. But experts say that as social mores ease, more young heterosexuals are engaging in anal sex, a behavior once rarely mentioned in polite circles. And the experimentation, they worry, may be linked to the current increase in sexually transmitted diseases. Recently, researchers at the Bradley Hasbro Children's Research Center in Rhode Island suggested that anal sex is on the rise among teens and young adults, particularly those who have unprotected vaginal sex.
