What Is Pegging

Pegging is the anal penetration of a male partner by a female who wears a strap-on dildo or vibrator. This form of sexual play is pleasurable for both parties as men can enjoy the prostate massage and the stimulation of eroganous nerve endings around the anus, while women can easily receive clitoral stimulation with a bullet vibrator that is placed between the dildo and the labia.

While this form of intercourse has been largely taboo for straight men to experience in mainstream cultures, and the word “to peg” has only been coined in 2001, popular culture has picked up the act recently with notable scenes featured in the 2016 Deadpool movie and the TV series, Broad City in 2015.

Not just physically stimulating, pegging has psychological benefits too – the perspective and power dynamic change can arouse both men and women. Men can explore the receiver’s viewpoint during penetrative sex, while women can enjoy the dominance and power over their partner’s sexual satisfaction.

There are a few things to remember when preparing to try pegging for the first time so read our suggestions below to make sure that your experience will be just as pleasurable and orgasmic as it should be:

 

Lubrication

As with all types of anal play, lubrication is very important to ensure smooth and enjoyable penetration. The best bet is a dedicated anal lube that lasts longer making extended play sessions possible. Have a look at the Lubido Anal Lubricant, the Sliquid Organics Natural Gel Thick Lubricant or the YES Anal Water-based Natural Personal Lubricant to maximise fun for the both of you.

Pegging Toys

Make sure that the strap-on harness fits the wearer perfectly as ill fitting straps could get in the way and reduce the wearer’s control over the dildo, making penetration hard and unpleasant. Luckily, most harnesses are now fully adjustable, fitting UK dress sizes 4-40.

If your harness doesn’t come with a dildo already, it’s best to choose a slim, slightly curved one that will provide him with prostate stimulation with every thrust. A small dildo is better for the female half of the duo too, as the weight and length provides greater thrust-control. A starter, pegging dong like the Si Novelties Petite Dildo is ideal for beginners.

Most suction cup dildos are compatible with O-ring harnesses so you can mix and match what would you like to use for pegging. Realistic dildos can provide a thrilling aesthetic sight with a woman parading with their new phallic magic tool, but non-phallic dongs are often better suited to explore this form of intercourse with a heterosexual male partner.

 

 

There are also strapless strap-ons, like the Simply Strapless vibrators that are kept in place by a bulb held by the woman’s kegel muscles. This is a more advanced option as it requires some practice to perfect the control over the shaft and use it for penetration. But once mastered, this innovative toy can take your pegging game to the next level as it can simultaneously buzz, vibrate and stimulate the both of you to intense orgasms.

Other Tips and Suggestions

 

The prostate, or P-spot – much like women’s G-spot – is more enlarged and therefore sensitive, when men are aroused so foreplay, oral sex and communication are all key to make the eventual penetration all the more satisfying.

While the power exchange and role reversal is thrilling for both men and women, it’s worth remembering that first-timers require patience and a gentle, slow and sensitive approach.

When it comes to the best position to try pegging for the first time, doggy style seems like an obvious choice, but missionary can actually provide more intimacy and instant communication without words and the curved dildo will hit his prostate a lot more efficiently too.

It’s worth starting out any pegging session with some light anal play involving butt plugs as it will help relaxing the anus. It also prepares and arouses the body for the ensuing sex and climaxes that are sure to follow.

The most important thing to remember about pegging though, is to have fun with it. Communicate, laugh, talk, experiment and enjoy each other’s bodies. Pegging can provide so much physical and psychological pleasure, you don’t want to miss out!
