To explore expectations, experiences and circumstances of anal sex among young people. Qualitative, longitudinal study using individual and group interviews. Anal heterosex often appeared to be painful, risky and coercive, particularly for women. It seemed that men were expected to persuade or coerce reluctant partners. Young people's narratives normalised coercive, painful and unsafe anal heterosex. This study suggests an urgent need for harm reduction efforts targeting anal sex to help encourage discussion about mutuality and consent, reduce risky and painful techniques and challenge views that normalise coercion. This study uses a large qualitative sample from three diverse sites in England and is the first to capture a wide range of circumstances around and reasons for engaging in anal sex among men and women between the ages of 16 and

T urns out young people have finally realized that both males and females, desire, and care about sex. Even though teenage boys consume more pornography and think about it more often, a new study that interviewed Swedish year-olds discovered that teen boys and girls fantasize about the same things. Not only that, but teenage girls are more interested in pornography than conventional thinking leads us to believe. Based on the findings, there are no differences between the number of teen males and females who say their sexual behavior is influenced by pornography in a big way which, might not be a good thing. Unsurprisingly the teens that do watch pornography have more favorable attitudes towards it in general. And, the females in the study were more experienced than the boys in oral, anal, and vaginal sex. However, the genders were equally likely to partake in one-night-stands, group sex and buddy-sex. But despite that, the teens in the study who were sexually active did hold the perception that males and females are equally interested in sex.
