Comprehensive overview poll about what is "normal" among those in the EF Forum "family".

Bignuf Bignuf
I have seen lots of posts about the SPECIFICS or oral sex, or the SPECIFICS of anal sex...and a few that say "do you like this, or that". What I have NOT seen is a kind of comprehensive survey of "what IS the normal" among this group.

I am going to use just some BROAD catagries and I am darn well sure I am going to forget to ask a bunch others, so please let me know which activities I have simply left out, and we can look at a more comprehensive future poll.

SO, the question is: Which if these activities is a NORMAL PART OF YOUR SEXUAL LOVE LIFE. ONLY CHECK AN ITEM IF IT IS SOMETHING YOU DO, OR ARE WILLING TO DO, MORE THEN JUST ONCE TO "EXPERIMENT". IN SHORT, WE ARE LOOKING FOR WHAT PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO DO MORE THEN JUST ONCE...MAYBE NOT FREQUENTLY , BUT ACTIVITIES YOU CONSIDER OKAY, ACCEPTABLE AND NORMAL AS PART OF YOUR LOVEMAKING. ALSO, MAY AS WELL ASK "WHAT WOULD YOU NEVER, EVER DO (OUTSIDE, AGAIN, OF PERHAPS EXPERIMENTING).
Answers (private voting - your screen name will NOT appear in the results):

It's all acceptable, but that doesn't mean we do it on any kind of a regular basis.

Anal is once in a blue moon. BDSM aspects are cool, but only very specific ones. 'Multiple partners' has incredibly strict and well-defined boundaries. It's by no means a free-for-all.

We do oral, anal on occassions (I'm still working my body to it), some basic beginner aspects of BDSM, and roleplay.

My husband and I tried anal about 12 years ago and I was permanently damaged due to our lack of knowledge for preparation. Anal is a huge HELL NO! now. I am a big wimp when it comes to an kind of discomfort and also very claustrophobic so we do not experiment with BDSM. However, we enjoy semi-public, light voyeurism/exhibitionis m (camming anonymously, c2c chatting, omegle, etc.) and am very open about fantasies, toys and new options.

Understood...and clarification appreciated. However, there are all kinds of "shades of gray" from "do it every day, to do it, as you say "once in a blue moon", for each of these, so right now, I was just asking for who WOULD do these things...and who would NOT (as an OKAY thing...not just a one time "experiment".

"permanently damaged"???? Honestly, please share what that means, either as a warning or education to others. Even those who care to enjoy anal sex should understand how to do it SAFELY and without pain!!!

It's not so much that any of these are unacceptable - but some are just not 'our thing' like BDSM or her thing like pegging.

Most of those are acceptable, however, I don't believe in any such thing as "normal" sexuality, and I honestly think the concept is damaging to those who fall outside of common sexual practices.

I wasn't able to vote that BDSM was or was not acceptable in my current relationship---I'm not sure where on the spectrum what we do falls. We do a little forced orgasm play and some spanking, but nothing very intense...

We fall more on the D/s side of things. Pegging is the only one I didn't answer- it's not something that we do, but it's a potential for the future and isn't blacklisted.

I'm not into multiple partners if I am in a relationship with someone. Everything else is pretty normal for me.

I didn't vote on oral because it's honestly an "other"

I do not want him going down on me. I don't enjoy oral sex, but I don't mind giving him a blow job during foreplay.

Heh, we do all of that except costumes!

Technically my partner and I are incapable of pegging, as neither of us are men, and I wasn't really sure what else would count as "role reversal", given that we're both switches... so I left that option alone. And we've never tried multiple partners, and I'm not really sure how I feel about it, so I left that one alone too. Everything else, we've done and liked (except costumes, we're too lazy, LOL).

The ones I said no to were :

Anal, just because neither of us are really interested at this time. We don't think it's weird or gross or wrong or anything. It's just not something I care about. I haven't even gotten fully in touch with my other parts yet, anyway. :s

Ds, honestly, I've always had an interest, but partner does not, not at all. While I wouldn't mind trying, it's not killing me not to. I would consider it "normal" in the sense that it wouldn't be crazy and weird to me. I think it's a very creative aspect sex/love/interaction and that interests me, as does different sensations.

Multiple partners, we're both rather shy and I think it'd be hard to find someone we were both *that* comfortable with. I think it would be very hard for me to be comfortable in that situation, it would take a lot of work.


But heck yes, costumes.

Role reversal and multiple partners were the only things I checked no for. Everything else is all good! Role reversal is just a turnoff for both of us, big time, and multiple partners are a no because we both like monogamy in our relationship.
And I gotta agree with Chirple, heck yes costumes!! We both costume for fun and for charity on a normal, daily basis, so... bringing it into the bedroom is really a small step, haha!

I only checked no for role reversal and multiple partners.
I have several sets of lingerie and a few costumes, and we enjoy to dabble in some BDSM. I'm not a huge fan of anal sex, but I don't hate it. And oral sex is amazing. <3
