Pegging: What You Need to Know

October 10, 2019

  minute READ

Pegging is a sexual activity that can be both extremely pleasurable and very intimate for both parties involved. Unfortunately, due to the stigma of anal sex (especially when men are on the receiving end of it), a lot of people feel too unsure and anxious to explore their desires. Male gender role stress and fears of what wanting to be pegged means for their masculinity and sexual orientation stop many men from even voicing their desires to their female partners.

In this episode of the Get Sex Smart podcast, Dr. Valeria and I discuss the ins and outs (pun intended) of pegging – what it is, how to make it pleasurable, how to overcome anxiety and concerns around pegging, how to discuss pegging with your partner, and more.

In Episode 76 you will learn: 

  • what pegging is and what is needed for it
  • what the female partner can get out of pegging
  • how pegging can make you become a more compassionate, empathetic and skilled lover
  • the power that lies in willingly “surrendering”
  • why masculine gender role stress gets in the way of your sexual exploration
  • what some good starting positions are
  • ways to deal with your fears and reservations regarding pegging
  • what getting or wanting to be pegged says about you as a man (spoiler alert: it’s not what you think)
  • the simplest ways to open up an (ongoing) conversation about pegging with your partner
  • how to prepare for and approach that conversation
  • the problematic ways in which we as a society treat male vulnerability
