Pegging

feeldoe

Pegging is a sexual practice in which a woman penetrates a man’s anus with a strap-on dildo. The neologism ‘pegging’ was popularized when it became the winning entry in a contest in advice columnist Dan Savage’s ‘Savage Love’ sex advice column, held after an observation was made that there was no common name for the act. In terms of physical pleasure, a woman’s genitals may get direct stimulation from the base of the dildo, or in the case of a double-ended dildo, from vaginal (or internal) penetration. A woman can use a secondary vibrator, between the dildo and her genitals, to get pleasure from pegging.

Men may find stimulation of the anus, rectum, and adjacent organs enjoyable. During anal sex, pleasure can be particularly derived from the prostate, which can lead to an orgasm. Some men enjoy masturbating (or being manually stimulated) during pegging. Savage wrote that he believes all men should try pegging at least once, as it may introduce them to a new enjoyable sexual activity and illuminate them to the receiver’s perspective in sex.

A few instructional movies and books have emerged in recent years, including ‘Bend Over Boyfriend’ (1998), which originally inspired Dan Savage to call the act ‘BOB’ but his readers subsequently voted on the winning term, ‘pegging.’ After public statements by a national fast food chain against same-sex marriage in 2012, Mr. Savage wrote that ‘Chick-fil-A’ was a good synonym for pegging, giving the example: ‘Her boyfriend is kinda homophobic, but I hear he loves Chick-fil-A.’

The American pornographic film director and sex educator Tristan Taormino released an instructional pegging movie in 2009 by Vivid Entertainment Studio, ‘Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guide to Anal Pleasure for Men,’ featuring a detailed explanation about male anal pleasure and strap-on dildo sex. Pegging has recently been featured in a number of pornographic movies. The first pegging scene (long before the term was developed) appears to have been in the non-pornographic 1970 film ‘Myra Breckinridge,’ based on the novel of the same name by Gore Vidal, although it was not explicit. The first explicit pegging scene is believed to have been in the 1975 pornographic film ‘The Opening of Misty Beethoven.’

Female-to-male strap-on pornography became a popular sub-genre in the US in the early 21st century, with a number of studios producing dedicated series about it. Pegging films include ‘Strap It On’ (black women on white men), ‘Babes Balling Boys,’ ‘Strap Attack,’ ‘Boss Bitches,’ and various movies produced by San Francisco-based Men In Pain. Well-known female porn stars who expressed their pleasure in pegging their male partners include Taylor Wane, Brittany Andrews, and Monique Covét. When questioned about her particular kink Covét replied, ‘If we women have to take it from behind, then why not a man?’
