So, what's up with pegging?

What’s up with the term "pegging"? It’s like, gay men fuck each other. Lesbians fuck each other. Straight men fuck straight women. But straight girls can’t fuck men, they “peg”? What the fuck? Just discovering that there are straight men who like being penetrated by women. So I'm trying to figure it out. Looking for mature, informative discussion.

  • Since you're asking about the term... I can only assume someone thought about a strap-on like a peg or something that a woman puts on... don't know really lol.

    As to figuring it out... some guys are into humiliation role play... where a guy can be turned on by being made to wear embarrassing clothing in front of a girl, or turned by being forced to be nude in front of a girl (CFNM), on in this case by being "pegged".

    Perhaps a way to think of it from a female perspective: some girls are into golden showers, where they are aroused by the humiliation associated with being urinated on. Pegging is the same but with the gender reversed.

    Hope you learned something new!

    • Golden showers go both ways, y'know.

    • @redeyemindtricks Of course

  • As I understand it, "pegging" refers to a girl using a strap-on to penetrate a guy. For many - perhaps even a majority - of heterosexual guys, getting penetrated in the ass with a dick-shaped object seems too homosexual to tolerate. However, there are a substantial number of guys who enjoy receiving a prostate massage (digital penetration) while also receiving a hand job or oral sex.

    • Yeah, that makes perfect sense to me. All men have prostates. What doesn't make sense to me is the social stuff surrounding it. And the term itself.

  • It's just a term to explain the particular sexual act and who is involved. To answer your question, A girl can "fuck" a guy, but that doesn't necessarily mean she has a strapon attached to her and is penetrating the guy's asshole with it. But when you say she is "pegging" a guy, it does mean that. That's why it is used to describe that particular act. Fucking is a vague term for having sex, Pegging is a specific act under the fucking umbrella :)

  • The word itself actually came from a contest, held by Dan Savage in his "Savage Love" column.
    Dan literally asked his readers to come up with possible names... and then put it to a vote among the finalists. "Pegging" won.

  • Ask siri or google where did the term pegging come from.
    I think its hot I've pegged my MSN a few times he cums like the thunder with something pumping his asshole

    • Dan Savage had a contest for his "Savage Love" readers to name the act. "Pegging" was the winning contest entry.

    • @redeyemindtricks thanks babe ♥

  • Yeah its basically a guy being penetrated with a strap on by usually a female. Basically some like it- not because they're homosexual but simply because their G-spot is in their anus.

  • I imagine it has to do with the confusion of a girl fucking you which implies regular sex vs peggin which is pretty much impossible to misinterpret since its very much one way.

  • I have never heard of this before lol. Sounds hilarious as hell haha.

  • Its just another passing sex fad like squirting and anal.

    • what a ludicrous comment. It's a sexual act, how the hell can it be a "fad" unless your'e trying to be funny here, you couldn't be any more wrong.

    • @Mydnite (laughing) I realise its a sexual act but its also a sex trend atm. Cheer xo

    • Show All
  • I don't see anything wrong with it. People can do whatever makes them happy.
    If a women asked to do this with me I wouldn't say no.
    As for the term I don't know why it's called that but it's just a name and doesn't really mean anything in the grand scheme of things.

  • The sex columnist Dan Savage had a contest to name the practice, and Pegging is what won.

    Women might feel empowered or enjoy seeing what it is like to fuck (rather than be fucked). Guys might enjoy the prostrate effect.

  • I guess the short and concise answer I would give is this. I think women can and do fuck men in regular sex, as I've dated some dominant women who loved to be on top and definitely fucked the hell out of me. I guess the term pegging is kind of odd, it's just anal sex, but with the roles reversed. Pegging is a consensual act between a man and a woman and it takes it to another level. I'd have to say of the dozen or so women who have pegged me, they loved quite a few things about it. I'd say all of them loved the sense of control it gave them that they had never really felt before. A majority of them loved the fact that I was trusting enough to let them do it, since if done incorrectly could definitely hurt. I'd say about 70% of them loved the visual aspect of it, and how the strap on would give them physical sensations that would make them orgasm too. They also loved the fact that they could tell how much pleasure a prostate massage could give me pleasure too, often times I could orgasm without them even touching me... although it was always more enjoyable when they did. I've never had multiple orgasms from oral or vaginal sex (unless she was using her finger or a dildo on me at the same time). Quite a few of them also enjoyed receiving anal sex, and mentioned how much more patient, gentle and slow I was with them and how it's probably because I've been on the receiving end too. A couple of them laughed on how they think every guy should have to be pegged first before trying to have anal sex with a girl so it's much more enjoyable for the woman.

  • Just the word that has become acceptable for it

  • It's more of a situation whereas a normally dominate male allows himself to be dominated by a women and be the submissive for a change.

  • I have no clue and I do not think it could be that wonderful

  • I don't know why it's called that. I don't like the idea of being penetrated but the word "pegging" makes it sound sexier. Maybe it's that.

    • It occurred to me that it was intended to make it more appealing, to either the woman or the man. To me, it just makes me think of him like one of those games that are on the table at cracker barrels.

    • Oh, lol. XD To me it just sounds like being pinned against the wall.

  • i'm confused about the sexual stuff some people do. i need a beer
