I have a related question, but did not want to hijack the Anal Sex? thread, so here it is: My SO and I have tried having anal sex two, maybe three times in the past. I actually feel kind of guilty because although he brought it up, I did tell him I wanted to keep doing it so I could get into it and eventually we could both enjoy it fully. But does it work that way? I know trying twice doesn't really tell me much, but I did try it two or three times as well with my ex, a couple of years ago. I'm open to the idea of anal sex, my SO isn't pushing or pressuring me into it, at all. And as much as I want to try it, because I don't yet like it, in the moment when I'm enjoying myself I never ask for it. What I'm wondering is, should I just make an effort and try to have it more to get myself to enjoy it, like an acquired taste, or is there a better method to this? For me, it's a "new (but uncomfortable) feeling" at best. My biggest problem is, even when he's only fingering me, whenever he pulls back it kinda feels like a bowel movement, and that in turn makes me worry that I am having one, or will. I just feel that there's so much potential for fulfillment from anal sex, and it's an area I want to be able to WANT to explore with my SO.
