Dr. Hilda Hutcherson loves sex toys, believes the world is much too pornophobic, and thinks more women should give anal sex a try. In other words, she’s the gynecologist every guy wants his girlfriend to meet.
Women who don’t enjoy anal sex, she says, are probably doing it wrong. Intrigued, I scheduled an 8am consultation with the doctor to get the goods on joining the backdoor betty club.
I’m pretty sure the butt wasn’t made to be penetrated. Is anal sex bad for you?
You’re not going to hurt yourself if you follow the rules.
There are official anal sex rules?
You’ve got to want it. You’ve got to use lots of lubricant. And you’ve got to take it slowly.
How much, exactly, is a lot of lube?
You need A LOT. You’ve got to rub it all over the penis. Then, using your fingers, put the lubricant around the anal opening and up inside.
One of my friends said Astroglide is not good for anal.
Glycerin-based lubes [like Astroglide] don’t last long enough. A silicone-based lubricant is going to be a lot better for anal sex. If you use one of the others, you have to stop, put more on, reenter… it’s just a mess.
Anal sex is probably a messy endeavor anyway, right?
No, no! I wouldn’t say so, but everybody thinks you’re going to have feces all over the place
