Message: The Effects of Anal Porn on People’s Opinions of Anal Sex

Anonymous: I think it was you that pointed out that many porn stars were now doing anal exclusively on camera – I see vaginal become almost a niche thing in the future. What do you think explains the rise in the popularity of anal and do you think this is going to lead to more anal only couples?

I think the increase in the popularity of anal is multiple things playing off each other.

Easy access to porn online allows porn producers to quantify what sort of scenes people watch, and as they notice an interest in anal porn, they produce more of it. People can also interact directly with the producers, and as such some porn companies have begun producing exclusively anal porn.

At the same time, anal, which has been taboo but of interest for a long time, is gaining popularity in personal sexual practice in part because it gets featured more in porn, and there are so many porn scenes with no vaginal penetration at all, leading women who have an interest in it but in the past may have thought it was too taboo to consider to realize that it’s become more mainstream and isn’t a big deal to want it.

I agree that it’s going to shift more and more towards anal being the primary form of sex in porn, with vaginal porn more of a niche that a smaller group of people seeks out, and this in turn is going to cause a shift in personal sexual practices over the long term as well. Porn will go there first, both because it’s a new and interesting way for them to continue producing more content that people want to see, and because anal sex is far more visually appealing than vaginal, and so is better suited for the camera.
