my boyfriend asked me to have anal and i agreed. i want to do it. i heard its not even supposed to be painful just awkard at first, maybe some discomfort. but every time we try (about 3 times) it hurts and the third time i burst into tears. we use plenty of lube and we've tried positions that maybe would make it better, but the shit hurts..are we doing something wrong..he goes slow and he's gentle...could it be his size?? but he said he has done it b4. is somethign wrong with me, because i wanna do it, but its making me not wanna do it considering what happened last time.

Anal sex of any sort isn't going to be painful if you do it properly.
Which means not only lots of lube and going slowly and stopping if anything hurts, it means starting very very gradually (e.g. just trying a finger at first) and only doing what you actually want and what is comfortable at any given moment.
Anal penetration isn't something that everyone wants or enjoys. If you don't like the sensation of a finger in your anus, then a penis certainly isn't going to be much fun (and incidentally, since he has an anus and you have fingers, the experimentation can be equal-opportunity). Or you may find a finger is plenty and you don't want anything more.
If you're anxious or don't 100% want to do it or haven't had time to allow the muscles to slowly relax, then the muscles will tense up and it will hurt.
Well I agree with lemming and logic. Lube is definitely a good thing. My boyfriend tried a finger but it wasn't with a latex glove or lube and I can tell you right now that it wasn't very pleasant. It's not that he was rough or anything, it just wasn't a good feeling. It didn't hurt but I just didn't like it. Maybe we can try again this time using lube and a glove. I'm almost positive it will feel a LOT better. I'm sure I was anxious because he kind of did it without warning. I kindly explained to him that if he wants to do something like that again, then he has to tell me first. I told him that if I ask him to stop, then he has to stop because something might be wrong. It's not because I said stop and he didn't, I just felt like I should remind him. Because you have some guys that will think you're saying stop so they can keep going since you really enjoy it. Sometimes you have to speak loud and clear about your need and wants or else no one will hear you. No one is a mind reader!

Anal sex can be pleasurable. When I first tried it, I was in pain because he didn't use any lube. The second time we had plenty of lube and it was very pleasurable. It didn't hurt at all. Use condoms and lots of lube when having this type of sexual activity.
I agree with lemming and logic. Inserting a finger inside of the anus first will aid in making you more comfortable with the whole idea of anal sex (make sure that u use a latex glove and lube when doing so). Start slow and work your way up to trying it with hie penis again.
