Is our age/generation related to how positive or negative we are toward anal pleasure?

newfoundlust newfoundlust
I only admitted I was excited by being anally pleasured by my spouse or by toys about a year ago. I am about to turn 50. It seems that for folks my age and older there is a negative stigma attached to anal stimulation (this is not necessarily but may include penetration of any type)whereas it seems that stigma is lessening such that younger generations are more open or positive about this aspect of our sexuality. Hence this poll. What about it folks, how old are you and are you open to anal stimulation of some type (positive or neutral) or are you opposed to anal stimulation of any type (negative)?

I don't know that this is the best place to get accurate numbers on this subject. I think you're going to get a lot more anal-positive people in general on a sex toy site.

It's a subject I've been curious about before, though, so I'm interested to see the results!

You may well be right, but I also see a lot of folks saying they are not interested in it here too, so it will indeed be interesting to see the results. Thanks.

Sorry, I hope that didn't come off negatively in any way. If so, I really didn't mean for it to.

I do think that anal play is becoming more acceptable to younger generation.

I think it has always been around. It is just more spoken of today, then yesterday.

@markeagleone, I agree its more openly discussed, and that has always been around. What is intriguing is the stigma of it and whether our society overall is changing in its attitude for it.
@lucity, not at all. What I am hoping is that it is becoming more acceptable for all of us. Nerves are nerves, and if they feel good to be sexually stimulated, why should it matter where they are?

I think our society is changing in every fashion. I believe when my generation passes, most everything will be more open. I am open to everything people want to do for themselves, but yes, my wife and I are a bit more reserved ourselves.

This may be a skewed survey. I'm sure there are people of all ages on here, but I'd wager that a fair share of contributors are on the younger side anyway.

@yoda. Entirely possible, but then again define "younger side". I am in my late 40's, and I still consider myself younger. Also, that is why I set out the survey the way I did, so that we could, regardless of the number of votes (see currently, most answering are in their 20's), see how the attitudes seem to flow based on those 10 year generational gaps. Thanks for the thoughts.

I don't know about more positive, but I don't think it has the stigma that it used to have attached to it.

I am a little surprised there are so few folks past 20's who have voted.

I am in my 30's and just beginning to explore anal play. I was never interested in it before at all, but my man opened the subject up to me - he's in his 40's. So for us, it was kind of the opposite!

It's just common sense, people are more open to anal now than they were then. Just look at porn through the ages, it's a huge tell-tale of what's going to be the next "thing", it also shows hwo things have changed. Back in teh 60's oral was the big taboo in porn. I remember watching a 70's porn that had a woman going Vagina-to-mouth GASP! Then I saw a late 70's porn that dealt with first time bisexuality in women where one eats pussy for the first time. I remember the early 80's porn that first introduced anal(although it did happen in some earlier films, it was almost unheard of). By the late 90's anal was included in about 80% of all porn and the new "big thing" was ATM. Now 99% of all porn includes anal, 80% of THEM have ass-to-mouth. There is no more porns that discuss the tabboos of girl-on-girl and 99% of all porn actresses will to it with girls. the vagina-to-mouth topic is completely extinct and long lost to time. With the steady increase of DP vids and massive gang bang vids, plus vids that include women tossing salad and fingering mens asses during blow jobs, I suspect a genre of bi-porn will emerge that will be considered "straight" and "Manly", this will begin to break the same wall that once stood between straight and gay sex for women, where as now girl-on-girl doesn't even mean gay anymore, it's just what all women do and no one bashes an eyelash for it anymore.

I am anal positive... I don't think it has much to do with age... if anything, the older you are, the more you know about your body.

My wife got sick about 5 years ago, and had major heart surgery and just having normal sex was causing her a lot of pain so we pretty much stopped. Buy my needs still required attention so I ahd to pleasure myself, I tried anal some years ago and it was not to good, but I found massaging my prostrate help me achive pleasure. I have been hooked ever since.

With the internet making porn much more accessible and abundant, I think we're opening up as a whole (no pun intended) to a world where anal stimulation is catching on, at least in the younger generations. It makes me wonder what the future will hold.

I think it is age related. But more so about communication. I think being able to talk sexually opens lots of doors and I think the internet has allowed for that to happen.
