WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PEGGING AND WHY SOME PEOPLE ARE INTO IT

 What’s pegging exactly?

For the uninitiated, pegging is a sexual act that usually involves anal penetration with a strap-on dildo. Contrary to popular belief, the defining feature of pegging is in fact the use of the strap-on dildo rather than the gender of the partner doing it.

 

 

In the case of cis-het couples, pegging is about challenging the prevailing heteronormative notion that a man is a penetrator, and a woman is penetrated. It allows cis women to take ownership of their sexuality and reverse traditional gender-power dynamics. When it comes to the bedroom, some men struggle to deal with sexually dominant women; it may feel emasculating for some. This, coupled with the reluctance of many to try anal stimulation, make this practice a taboo for many couples.

 But we’re in the 2020s now and times are changing. Penis owners are starting to break away from judgements about their manhood and experimenting with their bodies. 

What’s in it for penis owners?

Most penis-havers have a nerve-dense prostate gland (P-spot) that can be stimulated through anal penetration and help unlock a much more intense orgasm. Pegging is a great opportunity for them to reach a prostate orgasm while connecting with their partner in a much more intimate way. 

What’s in it for vulva owners?

 It can be fun for the giver too!  If you have a vulva, using a wearable toy like Frida while using a harness adds all the clit stimulation you need, hassle-free. Plus, gender bending is hot.

Communication is key 

Pegging can be a vulnerable experience both emotionally and physically so trusting your partner and developing a solid level of trust is essential. Discussing expectations, positions and safe words can be a great way to ease any initial nerves too.

Beginners Tips

  • Get used to anal penetration by using butt plugs, fingers or even small dildos. That way, the transition to bigger dildos will be smoother. 
  • Another thing to stock up on is lube. The anus does not produce enough lubrication for comfortable anal sex, so it's important to use a water-based lubricant to reduce friction that’s also compatible with toys
