Anal and my marriage

Ok never done any of these forum type things before but here goes.

My husband has an obsession with anal sex(in my opinion). He loves it and he asks for it all the time(even after we have just done it). We've been together for 5 years and I can't stand anal. I give it too him because it seems so important to him and he gets it maybe once a month. I hate it. I hate the thought of it, i think it is absolutely disgusting and nasty and there is no reason at all for it. I don't get any pleasure out of it, it freakin hurts and i don't want to have anything to do with it. Just the thought of it gets me upset.

He thinks sex is one of the most important parts of a relationship, and starts to feel very unloved if he goes without it for even a week. I on the other hand do not think sex is that important. I think communication/trust/honesty are the most important parts of any relationship.

I've tried to explain how i feel about anal to him multiple times, but he seems to think the only reason i don't want to do it is that it hurts, and he goes on and on about how "it can't hurt that bad" and that if i'd relax and try forplay i would learn to like it. i don't know how else to explain it to him. I do not want to even try to learn to like it the thought of it makes me sick!! and i've tried over and over to explain that to him but he just seems to focus on the hurting part and wants to try and i guess warm me up first. I'm not saying people shouldn't have anal sex, i'm not saying that in time i could have it and it be less painful. the plain and simple truth is I have no desire to have it, no desire to talk about it no desire to have anything to do with it. it just makes me feel uncomfortable and sometimes i feel like i'm being guilted into doing it because i love him and he loves anal so much.

i just don't understand the fascination with sticking your penis in a place that **** resides in, it's gross lol I just feel like this one thing is going to ruin my marriage because we'll never be able to agree and i don't know how to even begin to compromise when the one time a month is pure hell for me as it is and he wants it even more.

i guess this post is more of a vent than anything lol I don't know what to do in this situation. if i could learn to love it i would try but it's not really about the act itself, my problem is about the way the act makes me feel adn that I do not at all approve of anal sex in the slightest. i can't seem to get my hubby to understand, and i can't seem to understand why he is fixated with it. I just have no idea anymore.

What the heck am I supposed to do? Will this issue ever be resolved????

Any advice would be very very appreciated.

Tell your husband to "take one for the team" then if he thinks anal doesn't hurt! He's never had anything shoved up his rear end evidently so how would he know!

I don't blame you on this one, and the only thing I can come up with is to not let him do it anymore.

i have told him(when i was pissed because he kept going on and on about it) that if he loves anal so much i'll take my dildo and shove it up his a$$ and see how he feels about it after that. he didn't take to the idea unfortunately, because "that's a completely different situation"

I want to just stop it all together but i'm afraid it'll break us up because he values sex more than anything in a relationship. Sex to him is the #1 thing in our relationship and it's just sooo important to him. i don't really understand why but he says since i don't like anal that when i let him have it, it makes him feel like i really love him, because he knows that i'm only doing it to please him.

If we had the money and my husband wasn't so against psychiatrists(he thinks they are all just trying to get money out of people) i would suggest going into couple's therapy probably sexual therapy to see what we could do about this situation.

If he values anal sex more then you then he is not a good husband and maybe breaking up is not a bad thing. I would never say yeah tell him the marriage is over but if you don't like it and it hurts then there is no reason to keep doing it. Sex is supposed to be pleasurable for both not just for one. And if he can't understand that then he has some issues. Yes it is not bad to try something...my wife tried anal for me once...she hated it and I was indifferent to is...we never did it again.

And I agree with imaaddict, tell him to take it in the butt. It is not a completely different situation because both men and women have the exact same area and it's not like woman's butts are made for a penis to enter.

Or even tell him to come on here and post about it and he will see a lot of women and some men like myself telling him to back off.

Get  vibrator the same size as him, and say he can have anal when you get to stick that in HIS tush. My hubby wants it but it hurts alot. I got a vibrator and lubed it up and tried it and it hurt but I kept doing it and it didnt hurt as much. So after a couple months of that, I let hunny try anal but it hurt way too much (vibrator is way smaller than him) I dont like it either but want to occasionally for him.

I never liked it either... and, I've never known a man who insisted on it, especially
if it hurts (which is also my reason for not liking it). Ordinarily, men want to give
pleasure to their women; not inflict pain. And, it sounds like sex with your husband
is more about him than you... that's a very selfish approach to what should be pleasurable intimacy.
The mistake that you made was tolerating something that you clearly never liked
for so long of a time.
Anyway, you simply have to refuse to participate in sexual practices that you're uncomfortable with. Tell him that you're agreeable to other sex acts; but not that!

I do feel it is selfish of him to keep asking me to do that when i don't like it, but on the other hand i feel like i'm being selfish if i don't do it because he likes it so much. So i'm just really confused lol

And i completely agree with you iam1butterfly, i should have stopped a long time ago. I really wish i had never done it in the first place because i never had any desire to do it and still do not have any desire to do it. i am so against it and he is so for it. i feel like we'll never be able to compromise on this issue because one of us will always not want it and the other always is. So one of us will always be unhappy with the situation.

If he can't enjoy just vaginal and I assume oral sex then maybe he is gay. 1/2 joking about that.
You are not selfish for not wanting to do it...as I said before, sex is about pleasure not pain. And if you are in pain, how is stopping something wrong or selfish?

Would you touch a hot stove...no because it hurts. So why continue to do something that hurts?

I bet he isn't responsive toward the idea of someone doing that to him! Of course not! So how can he expect you to be for the idea? He's got the wrong idea of give and take in a marriage!! Insert pun *here*

Vance said it all. Marriage is about compromise and 50/50, even in the sex department. You've basically got two options. Either keep giving in to his selfish wants, or don't. Either way will have a consequence, so you have to choose which one you can live with.

Completely cutting him off from all sex for a really long time might make him sing a different tune.

I don't believe he's gay as he enjoys vaginal and oral alot too lol he just happens to enjoy anal as well. And no of course he doesn't want anything in his bum but he still thinks that i should have something in mine?

i guess i'm just going to have to talk to him again about how I feel about it, and tell him seriously that i do not want to do it again. If he feels that anal is too important and that he doesn't want to live without it then I guess we're just not made for each other. It's horrible to say i love him but i'm not going to spend the rest of my marriage arguing over why i don't like anal or why he does or when he can have it or all that.

This whole situation seems ridiculous to me and it does make me feel like he values the sex part of our relationship over just being with me. I just don't understand why this one thing can be so important and why this one thing should effect our relationship?

I personally do not like it.This is not pleasurable to me.  It's painful and can be damaging to your anus (tearning, bleeding, hemoroids, bacteria from waste that can result in infection and other future complications). The penis was not created to be used in the anus and I believe it's unatural, yet so many men enjoy this type of sex. I personally hate it and will not do it, whether he likes it or not.  The anus is for the expusion of our bodies waste, so if you have a tear, I you can actually catch bacteria, resulting in an infection and suffer from hemoroids.\

I relate anul sex to homosexuality. Many heterosexuals enjoy it, but I don't see or feel the purpose for something that feels extremely painful to me.

If you do not enhoy this type of sex, is not satisfying, but painful and are uncomfortable with the penis back there, you husband is just going to have to get over it and tell him that you don't like it, its painful causing tear, bleeding hemoroids and possible infection.  If he truly loves you, he will take you into consideration and respect the way you feel.

These parts that you said are exactly how i feel about it!! I don't think it's natural either and when i try and bring that up he thinks i'm just overreacting or says that i'm "just dramatizing anal sex"

Maybe it's just my catholic upbringing talking lol

ICK-my husband and I have tried it a few times, more so at his request. He tried telling me the same things, that I needed to relax more, that it would feel good then. I finally told him NO MORE. We tried it, I didn't like it, I think it's disgusting, and it won't happen again. Sex is supposed to be enjoyable for both of you, not just one of you. Also, I don't know if you have ever had HPV, but if you have, anal sex can increase your risk of anal cancer. Not safe! Just flat out tell him there will be NO more anal sex and that it has nothing to do with your love for him. It goes both ways! If he loves you, he will want to please you as well. Not just himself. That is selfish.

My DH and I tried anal once.  He enjoyed it.  I hated it.  He has never asked me to do it again.  Why?  Because he respects me and my body.  He would never dream of hurting me or making me uncomfortable with any sexual act all to satisfy himself.  He likes for me to be satisfied as much as he is.  If I'm not satisfied he feels like a failure in bed.

That's what love, respect and sex SHOULD be about.  Your husband is not respecting you.  I'm inclined to go with imanaddict and tell him to take it up his rear and see how he likes it.  Men like that just really tick me off!
Blank
372900_tn?1315515902
Not to mention it's a HUGE turnoff for DH if I'm not enjoying myself while having sex with him.  Anal doesn't give me satisfaction, nor pleasure.  He wants me to really be into it or not have sex at all.

I tried it once in my life (in my 20's) long time ago. HATED it and I told him to stop immediately and I bled and it took a while to heal. Everytime I went to the toilet, it would reopen the tear. What type of pleasure is that unless a couple is into pain, well, I'm not. NEVER again!

I agree with vmvnpv love making should be mutually love, respect and satisfying.

I would divorce my husband before i would let him do that, it is digusting and i would image that it hurts. i am just glad thet my husband likes normal. in fact if he asked me i would probably put something up him and listen to him scream.love has nothing to do wit it when they want to do something that hurts you. and yet he is supposed to be in love with you, he just wants his way         luck  jo

I do not like it at all either. Me and the hubby tried it(total of three times) and as soon as it started easing in every time i was like Oh hell no! lol The hubby still occasionally asks about it, probably hoping I'll change my mind with age or something crazy(lol) but I say no and he backs off about it.

You should never be made to do something you are uncomfortable with and if your hubby doesn't understand that after you tell him you don't want to do it then he does not respect you or love you. How can he love you if he is not even considering your feelings or thoughts on the matter?

He sounds selfish to me and i agree with everyone else. A couples sexual relationship is about mutual satisfaction not causing the other pain or misery just so one can get their ending.

well i had a big paragraph but my computer restarted on me :(.

to make a long story short, a while back i really wanted to try it w/ my girlfriend who is now my fiance. anyways, she was kinda skeptical about it, but let me. at first it did hurt hur, but she let me kept going. afterward, it didnt hurt her, but the next time we tried it i couldnt go in the whole way cause it was really hurting her. so, she was gonna let me do it a couple more times but couldnt cause of the burn. so one day we sat down and talked bout it. she told me pretty much what the rest of you ladies said and i simply said alright. i didnt want to hurt her. anyways to get to my point here; i really felt good, once you got it lubed up and and what not. it just one of those fanticies that guys get and wanna try out. we still talk bout it and what not. but we always talk aobut our sex life and were very open and honest w/ eachother. as i read all the comments i cant beleave how other peoples relationships are, just pull him to the side and talk. if he cant sit there and man up to listen to your needs (excuse my language) then hes a bit**!
Blank
372900_tn?1315515902
It's not one of those fantasies for this couple.  He is hurting her and she's told him how much she doesn't like it and he doesn't care.  Bottom line is he's only in it for himself and doesn't want to hear her complain.  He wants his way or no way.  It's much different than what you are describing.  I truly loving and caring man wouldn't want to hurt their SO and wouldn't push them to do what they want them to do against their will.

And I'm just curious.....what did you mean by how you can't believe how other relationships are?  All these women are in relationships with men who obviously care about their wifes/gf's wants and needs.  If the woman doesn't like anal then the man should understand.  If that's all he wants then he needs to find someone else who wants it too.  Any (real) man would just be happy getting it any way he can if he really loves the one he's with.

i aploagize. i shouldve specified. before i joined i have researched for a lot of different things to better myself. while researching and reading other peoples problems and comments (not just on here) i couldnt beleave how men were being so about them selves, and was treating them. i do agree that if she dont like it, the man should understand and stop it. i used to be the same way. i would pressure my girl into doing what i wanted. it was all bout me. but as i got older and matured more, i realize that its not all about me, and if i wanted to be w/ this wounderful girl i need to change my ways.

I talked to my husband over the weekend. Put it off for a while because I couldn't get the nerve up to speak with him lol

Long story short, he didn't take it too well. Apparently i'm being selfish and a b*tch and a lot of other things(the jerk). I've kind of just left him alone to take everything in as he is still upset about it and won't even talk to me right now. I don't know what to do. I did not expect a temper tantrum!

I don't know if I should try and talk to him again about everything or just wait for him to fully calm down or what i should do. He's basically been ignoring me since I told him??

You are NOT the one being a selfish B*tch, he is! Don't be fooled by his poor attempt to make you feel bad for him so you'll give in. This is no longer an option for him, so he's just going to have to enjoy sex the good ol fashioned way (if you're gracious enough to do that for him after this).

I actually feel so much better now that I told him and he can go and sulk all he wants but i'm done with the anal sex and i really do not care how much he wants to b*tch. I realized just by the way he's been acting that he's being an immature jerk so i don't feel bad about it at all.

However if he does keep up the toddler attitude I'm not about to give him any regular sex until he can act like an adult and treat me with some respect, I'm sick of his attitude I have 3 kids already I definitely do not need a 4th!!

Tell him if he wants anal he can find a guy to help him out but you will no longer be around for him.

Your husband is a big baby.  He's calling you a selfish b*tch?  I'm sorry but it's your body and if he can't handle what you said like the man he's supposed to be then maybe he's not mature enough to be in a marriage.  Maybe counseling will help.  I personally wouldn't put up with that ****.

My wife and I used to have anal sex.  Not much, perhaps 4-5 times a year.  I thought she liked it cause I did ask her if she liked it (her answer was that it was like eating very spicy food - can be painful but for some reason you enjoy it).  And she acted like she enjoyed it.  But then in what seemed to me to be out of the blue, she decided no more anal sex.  She said she just didnt like it and that it hurt.  Didnt want to discuss it any more, and dont bug her about it.

This confused me and then made me feel pissed off.  I kept searching for an alternative reason why.  I kept thinking it was me - that she didnt love me enough anymore, that I didnt turn her on anymore.  I knew she had done it in the past and that bothered me too.  Now my wife would not do things that she had done with other guys.

As soon as I couldnt have it, I wanted it more.  It became the forbidden fruit.  And every single porn we would watch together seemd to have anal sex in it.  It seemed so mainstream, like "everyone was doing it" except me.  

So I may be able to understand how your husband could feel about this.  What made me understand better was her telling me that in truth she never liked anal sex and that earlier in our relationship she was willing to do things that she didnt like just to please me.  She realized that that probably was not a good idea, but it was done.

Learning that our partner is no longer willing to do anything to please us can be a painful experience.  It made me question not so much the anal sex, but what about me / her / our relationship changed?

This will sound "Freudian", but perhaps he doesnt know how to react to your refusal in an appropriate way because he is exhibiting some deep-seeded repressed feelings about acceptance and approval from his childhood / younger years.  Like for me, perhaps the loss of anal sex is more symbolic to him about perceived changes in you and your relationship.

I dont think you should do anal only to please him if you find it unacceptable.  But as a guy who has recently been "cut off", if you do still want to please him I can suggest that you think about some other ways that please him that are acceptable to you (sex toys, more oral, some other fantasy fulfillment perhaps?).  That might ease the rejection.

I have never tried to pretend that i liked anal. My husband always knew that i didn't not like it and did not want it at all. I'm fine with everything else sexually, so anything else he wants to do i'm game for, well besides swinging or threesomes, if he asked for those i might have to leave him lol.

Well the hubby started talking to me again today. We haven't had a talk about the situation yet because the kids are home and he was off to work, but he did wish me a good day and kissed me and said he loved me before he went to work so there's some progress lol I guess he's calmed down. So now i'll just have to talk to him tonight once the kids are asleep.

Thanks everyone for the advice I felt so much better just getting opinions from all of you, and feel completely better now that i have talked to him and he's calmed down! I'll let ya know how the talk goes.

What your husband is doing isn't right at all, I can understand a desire to fulfill a sexual desire but only if you both enjoy it and the fact that he only semms to concentrate on the pain factor.. surely that he causing pain to you should make him wnt to stop anyway? You have to be firm about the situation and tell him no, what's the difference between doggy and anal to him?

686059_tn?1293837427
I'm straight forward. If I don't like it, we are not going to do it that way. If he has a problem, we can talk about it without childish tantrums, but it's not going to change my mind. I just don't like it and won't do it. He has a choice...he can either understand my pain (literally speaking), cause problems in the marriage as a result, he can go somewhere else and get it, but don't come back, we will really get divorced over it, but simply said, I'm not doing it that way and I'm pretty good at everything else...he knows it and will come back, but no anul sex.

I haven't been on here since posting this and thought I would just update everyone on my situation. Me and my husband have been in marriage counseling since discussing our problems with this issue(we have other problems besides this) and our relationship is still a little rocky but it's been so much better since going into counseling. My husband now realizes that I am serious about never doing it again and that i don't even want anal mentioned. Now he does still occasionally bring it up to see how i feel about it, but once I say no, that's the end of it which is great because before the counseling he would just go on and on about the matter until we'd end up in a big fight, and now once i say no he drops it immediately. The counseling has just helped us both so much to better understand each other and communicate so much better with each other. It's still a process but one that is definitely working for us! I completely recommend counseling to anyone who has any problem in their relationship regardless of what it is, because even if you don't think you have a problem I still think it just helps out so much, because you get a new perspective on everything and it's just an eye opener!

I am catholic too and have never let my husband *** in me that way he is catholic to and wouldn't do that outside of my vagina and he never has we didn't even have sex until our wedding night,but we do occasionally have anal sex and I admit that I have enjoyed it but he goes very very slowly at first and I know he loves me very dearly and I do him. He also likes it when i insert a finger to him. We are both very devout and enjoy a great open and loving sex life full of true passion. We do not use contraception I am in fact 4 months pregnant with my third child right now and we hope for a big family and are completly in love with God and eachother. I don't think this woman is being loved or respected but anal penetration if both consent and as foreplay does not contradict the churches teaching on human life. I wouldn't want to do it often though so as to care for my body and my anus bowl and muscles. I was so surprised when he did it facing me with my legs on his shoulders and I really liked it and could kiss and look into one anothers eyes experiencing eachother and I had a very very intense squirting orgasm when i touched myself as he penetrated me. He washed then we had sex vaginally and we both enjoyed it a lot. It is not for everyone

CuriousGal, I'm glad you are in counseling and it's helping your relationship, but I just had to give my two cents here in case things revert.   The attitude and actions your husband was showing in your first letters are what most of us would call an abusive relationship.  No healthy person who loved you would ever ask you to do something sexual that you were revolted by and/or that caused you pain.  Sex is one of the most intimate forms of expression, and to go against someone in that area can cause all sort of damage to the relationship in general.  Any man who forces that issue is not healthy/mature enough to be in a relationship and you should leave him. The fact that he was so insistent that you do it, yet entirely unwilling to experience it himself (or even try it) just emphasizes this point.   I would never, ever stay with a man who compelled me go against my beliefs and health.  Please don't demean yourself by trying to have a relationship with an abusive partner.  If you can work it out and he can see the light and grow up and stop being selfish, that's fine and I'm happy for you, but if he has other areas like this or reverts back to pressuring you again, please ditch him.  You are better off alone than with someone like that.  You are worth something as a person, and your partner should love and respect you, not use you like a piece of furniture.

He's insane saying anal doesn't hurt.. i think you should buy a strap-on and shove it up his @$$ and tell him that it'll help you get more into it. Then maybe he will think twice. I complete honesty.. you seem like the push over in the relationship, and he knows how to easily manipulate you into what he wants. He peer pressuring you, and that is not right. He is supposed to be you companion, not your sex toy. You never put him in his place in the beginning, and now look at where you are. You think you put him in his place, but you give up in the end. Not good. Put your foot down and say no more.

Have you tried going to an adult toy store and buying your husband an anal toy? I mean I know exactly how you feel on anal sex. I refuse to try it because one it not good to stick something up your butt repeatedlyas in it can lead to "leakage" and other unsanitary things. I always say its an exit not an entrace so I won't do it. But why not try an anal toy for him so you don't have to go through that pain?

i have to tell you from experience if it is hurting you during anal sex then you have someone who don't know what they are doing or just don't care about you.  my boyfriend and i have anal sex on a regular basis and i love it as much as he does.  you have to learn to relax them muscles so you can enjoy.  myself it is hard for me to have a vaganal orgasm but when we have anal sex it is no time and i am having an orgasm and it is so intense my whole body shakes.  if he would take his time do it right and not hurt you i believe you would enjoy having it as much as he does.  the other question why he enjoys anal sex so much as like other men it is because the thought of their penis being there and the thought of it being so nasty is what makes them want it that much more.  anal sex isn't for everyone but i do have to say when you have a caring and loving partner it is a wonderful thing.

i agree with you if you don't enjoy it then you shouldn't have to do it.  did he try to or start having anal with you before you guys got married?  i myself enjoy anal sex but i will tell you that if it is something that hurts me and i don't enjoy it then i am not goin to do it.  if your relationship has to be based on you having anal sex with your husband then that is a relationship that you don't need to be in.

the penis was not made to be put into the mouth either.  only food drinks and medicine was but people still do that.  anus is for the expusion of our waste, well our mouth is for the intake of our food that processes for the expusion.

Hello Dixie

Maybe you haven't had any trauma in your anus because you perfer it over vaginal sex. So glad that you enjoy your sex life. All couples should enjoy their sex life, and it is clear the poster and her husband are on two different levels when it comes to their sex life. He should NOT badger her to have anal, it is WRONG to make her feel bad about it. You know what? No matter how a man approaches it, anal always hurts.. why? Because our anuses are not elastic like our vaginas are. You know, I don't know about anyone else but I feel like you went overkill telling women that they should try to relax their muscles in their anuses and "if you tried it, you'd like it" ok. I don't care that you can't have an orgasm having vaginal sex. Have some class. Keep the details of your bedroom romps to yourself. The poster wasn't seeking advice from women who prefer anal sex. She said she didn't like it and how it made her feel..

To the poster-
I realize this post is older. I hope all is well. You should NEVER feel obligated to do ANYTHING that makes you feel bad or causes you pain or harm.

why in the world would a man want to put his penis in an anus? that is just beyond me. it's disgusting. women have vaginas-! my a$$ has an "exit only" sign on it. only once did a man --former boyfriend years ago--ask me if I wanted to try anal and I said no and that was the end of it. he never asked me again. a man should respect your wishes and want to protect you. not harm you for god's sake.
OMG-***-*******-! NO way! Do not do it. There will be medical consequences! This is what Dr Drew says about *a$$ fu@&ing******:
...............................
Most women I hear from who want to make it more comfortable are having anal sex just to make their boyfriends happy. Are you kidding? If it hurts and it's awful, the answer should be, "Hey, dickhead, we're not doing this anymore." I'm telling you: Stop it, ladies!
If you have pain, your body is telling you something. There will be medical consequences. In the short term, there's the risk of tears, fissures, and fistulas. But I'm much more concerned about the long term. Go talk to a 75-year-old woman sometime who hasn't had anal sex, and you'll see that as you age, the rectal area has tons of problems associated with it anyway. You can get hemorrhoids and abscesses, and the rectum can prolapse into the vagina or out of the anus — and that's without ever having anal sex. Yet you're setting yourself up for these things with this behavior! If you don't have pain with anal sex, then your body may be tolerating it, although you still run the risk of problems. I shudder to think what's going to happen to young women later on when they continue to have painful anal sex.

Anal sex does hurt in the beginning. Thinking its gross will never let you relax enough to enjoy. In a marriage, you and your spouse should be able to talk about sex. He should listen to what you like and you listen to what he likes. How can sex be one sided? If he only does what you like and and he doesn't ever get what he likes he may start looking outside his marriage for it. A couple should experiment with each other. Most women are shy or embarrassed about what their man will think about them. And your right they think about how awesome sex was last night. But if they aren't getting to be themselves sexually with their wife, someone will give them that fulfillment.  So, when you are alone and masturbating,  slip a finger in, next time two, then try a toy. Relax, its as enjoyable as the vagina. When you stretch enough that he can enter, you can work your other area while he's working him. It doesn't have to be anal sex all the time. But you can surprise him on occasion and direct him there yourself. You'll be amazed by his thoughts, ask him afterwards what he thought when you initiated anal sex. Men have desires as well as women. Sexual intimacy is a great factor in a relationship,  if you don't have it, your relationship probably is stressful on both sides. My marriage survived when sex came alive for both of us. Never be ashamed to relax in sex, don't think about what y'all will do, just go with the mood, its an adventure.  If you can't talk face to face, text him and ask what is something he wants to do sexually that y'all don't do, then you can tell him something he doesn't know you like or would like to try. Don't stop there,  keep talking and exploring thorough your relationship.

Also to those saying their anus is an exit to an entrance, your vagina is also.  I thought that way once also.

hello there.  This is an old post.  If anyone would like to begin their own thread,  you can go to the top of this page and hit "ask a question" to do so.  

I think everyone should do what they are comfortable with sexually and no one should be pressured or forced to do something they don't want to.  

luck to all.

I am having this problem with my husband. I tried anal with a previous boyfriend who was not as well endowed as my husband is. We did the lube and the foreplay and the whole nine yards several times and it was awful. Tonight i let my husband finger my hole and it really hurt i can't sleep it hurts so bad. I am going to have a discussion again with him tomorrow. Which will be a waste of time since he has himself convinced that i secretly want it. I am so upset that he doesn't seem to care about my feelings or the potential damage it will do to my body. I really feel like it is ruining our marriage.
