A practice considered taboo for a long time

Sodomization of slaves was a sign of power for their master in ancient Rome. In France, until the end of the 18th century, the practice of sodomy was punishable by burning in the prison or by imprisonment. In 1971, sodomy disappears entirely from the French criminal code. For 13 states in the USA, the law of punishment of sodomy was abolished in 2003.

A man of three practice sodomy regularly. Physically, anal sex is a moment of pure pleasure for a man. Because the anal sphincter is tighter than the vagina, the penis will be more compressed and the pleasure will be more intense for it.
