Would you say anal sex is demeaning to women? Man A: The only way it can be is with the intent to demean. A friend of mine who is a pretty ardent feminist and former National Organization for Women intern told me she used to think doggy style sex was demeaning to women until she tried it and found it felt awesome. So no, anal isn't demeaning to women as long as she's a willing participant and the intent is for both people to have fun and get off. Man B: No. It's just another way to have a sex and there's not really anything wrong with it. I understand the stigma behind it and why some people view it as demeaning, but that's only because we live in a country where you can't show nudity on TV but can show people with limbs blown off on the news.

The truth is, I have no fucking idea. After you finish this article, read her counterpoint , which dives into the joys of sticking things up your butt.
