Painal is a very controversial form of anal sex—a type of sex that is still teetering on the fence between taboo and normalized. From an outsider point of view, even when it is understood to be consensual, painal is an extreme, niche sexual activity.

If you or your partner are interested in exploring painal, prepare yourself for the potential of a long, detailed conversation. Actually, prepare for many talks to negotiate activities, set boundaries, understand safewords and be prepared for what to do in case a medical situation arises.

Even with full consent and enthusiasm, you and your partner will need to discuss the experience before and after and you should also stop and check in during a painal session to ensure everything and everyone is going according to pain.

One of the reasons painal has become a known activity is its portrayal in porn. It could be argued that painal is actually more of a porn thing than it is a real life phenomenon. That kind of thinking undercuts the reality that people will think of and try almost anything sexual, and some will like it, no matter how extreme. That said, part of the appeal of painal is the visual portrayal of dominance and humiliation.


One important note: painal is not inherently the same as painful anal sex. Painal is intentional of the appearance of painful anal sexual activity. Loving, happy, considered, non-painal anal sex can also be painful—even when it isn’t intentional.

Regular ole anal sex itself doesn’t have to be painful, and there are many tips and tricks that can be used to minimize this risk. Unfortunately, for some folks, anal sex may always be uncomfortable, but hopefully, relaxing, preparing, using lube and taking your time can reduce this possibility and allow the significant pleasure of anal play be possible.
