A new survey from Bespoke Surgical has found that one in four straight women have anal sex on a regular basis – meaning at least a few times a month.
Previous research also suggests that 37% of women have ever had anal sex. This means that women who have anal sex are more common than people think, though most do not like to admit it.
Of the 300 women surveyed, 57% of those who had anal sex said they never used a condom for butt stuff. This is because straight women tend to have anal sex with longterm partners who they know are free of STIs because they get regular checks.
One in five of the women surveyed who’d engaged in anal sex said they experienced tearing or other damage from the act. That’s an important reminder to partake in anal safely and comfortably, using lots of lube, going slow, and stopping if there’s any pain, the research result advised. The results also showed that cleanliness is a real worry among straight women, who tend to fret about any poo getting on their partner’s penis
