There are plenty of mainstream, tried-and-true ways to get down and dirty with a partner. Then there’s a whole other realm of taboo sex acts. You know, things generally left to porn videos or erotic reading material. Some of these acts may make your skin crawl, but some find them sexy. When it comes to sexual proclivities, we’re all one-of-a-kind snowflakes, and there’s no right or wrong way to do the deed. (Within legal reason, of course.)

But if you’re looking to expand your carnal repertoire, consider these 10 under-the-radar sex acts. They may not be for everyone, but what’s “ewww” or "ouch" to one person may be another’s Big O.

1. Pegging

Coined by sex advice columnist Dan Savage, this term refers to when a man is penetrated anally with a strap-on dildo by his female lover.

2. Analingus

Yep, it’s exactly what it sounds like — oral sex performed on the anus. Aka: rimming, like the fudge bowl.

3. Ballbusting

A fetishistic act in which a guy likes getting his balls kicked, kneed or, in extreme forms, “busted” by hammers or high heels. Ouch.

4. Cuckold

This could be a guy whose female significant other is green-lit to have sex with other men. Or it’s a scenario in which men get off on watching their wife or girlfriend have sex with other men.

5. DP or double penetration

When a woman is penetrated anally and vaginally — at the same time. The logistics and reality probably don’t live up to the fantasy.

6. Electrostimulation

E-stim, as it’s often called, or shock therapy incorporated into sex involves stimulating nerves in the genitals and erogenous zones via a series of electrical shocks.

7. Fisting

The insertion of a whole hand into a vagina or sometimes anus. Apparently the filled-up feeling is orgasmic for some women.

8. Orgy

Imagine a gathering of three or more participants engaged in a sexual free-for-all. Aka: group sex.

9. Menophilia

This messy act involves having oral sex with a woman on her period. Aka: earning your red wings.

10. Sounding

The act of inserting a steel, medical-grade sounding rod into a guy’s pee hole, aka urethra, to inflict pleasure and pain. Some people use alternative items, like a toothbrush handle. (Is it just me, or does this one actually sound a little dangerous?)
