A recently published survey indicates an increase in the number of women who have tried anal sex compared to data collected in 1992. Today, 20 percent of women aged 18 to 19 say they have performed anal sex, compared to just 16 percent in 1992. The number even rises to 40 percent among women aged 20 to 24.
And it is not just done “out of curiosity.” In the survey, 20 percent of women in their 20s and 30s say they have done anal sex in the last month. Among those surveyed, the number who reported anal sex in their most recent sexual encounter was 3 to 4 percent.
In addition, women who had anal sex in their last encounter have the highest percentage of reaching orgasm at 94 percent, compared to 65 percent among women who had vaginal sex and 81 percent in oral sex. Analysts say that women who reached orgasm in anal sex also performed other sexual acts like vaginal sex, oral sex, and partnered masturbation. The more sex acts a woman engaged in during the encounter, according to them, the more likely she was to have orgasm.
