Anal sex between young men and women often seems coercive and painful , suggests research published in BMJ Open. They interviewed year olds from diverse social and economic backgrounds living in different parts of the country: London; an industrial city in the north; and a rural area in the south west. The interviews explored the range and meaning of different sexual practices, and included nine group and 71 individual in-depth discussions in , and further interviews of 43 of the in-depth interviewees in The group discussions focused on what sexual practices participants had heard of, what they felt about them, and whether they thought their peers would engage in them—and if so, under what circumstances.

The interviewees sometimes said that young men wanting to copy what they saw in porn, explained why they had anal sex, but the feedback suggests that other factors are more important, say the researchers.

The main strategies participants used to address pain during RAI were setting sexual boundaries and lubricant use; a small number of participants reported purposefully consuming alcohol to prevent the pain associated with RAI. Pain can occur during anal penetration when the external anal sphincter is not relaxed; because the anus does not self-lubricate, lubricating substances are also needed to reduce pain from friction Hollows, Other causes of pain during anal penetration may be sexually transmitted infections STIs such as herpes, or other anal health issues such as fissures and hemorrhoids Hollows, Experiences of pain during RAI are not uncommon and vary on different dimensions e.
