Anal penetration: a male fantasy
Many heterosexuals find all the more pleasure in anal penetration. The orifice being narrower, the friction provides an amplified pleasure. On the women’s side, opinions are divided. Some take pleasure in sodomy; others experiment to give pleasure to their partner, others still refuse.
