Donkey punch

Donkey punch is a slang term for an apocryphal and potentially lethal sexual practice supposedly performed during anal sex. The purported practice involves the penetrating partner punching the receiving partner in the back of the head or neck causing the receiving partner's anal passage to tense up and increase the pleasure of the penetrating partner.

Overview

The penetrating partner punches the receiving partner in the back of the head in order to induce anal contractions. The term is not strictly defined or well-documented; at least one source attests to the move being "made up." One source recommends the punch take place just before the penetrating partner's orgasm, producing "heavenly" constriction of the passive partner's anus "if he passes out." The loss of consciousness is found in other, but not all, descriptions. Another source recommends surprising the passive partner to "add ... intensity to the clench."

According to Andrea Nemerson, the sex columnist for the alt weekly San Francisco Bay Guardian newspaper, "There's no such thing as a 'donkey punch.'" Similarly, Dan Savage, the editor of the Seattle alt weekly The Stranger and author of the sex advice column Savage Love, has called it "a sex act that exists only in the imaginations of adolescent boys." However, there exists a movie dedicated to Donkey Punch, and it has been reviewed by Something Awful as part of their Horrors of Pornography column.

Medical and legal risks

Savage discussed the subject further in his October 25, 2006 "Savage Love" column. He wrote, "attempting a Donkey Punch can lead to ... unpleasant outcomes," including "injury, death, or incarceration;" he also pointed out that it "doesn't even work." He quoted Dr. Jeffrey Bahr, a faculty member at the Medical College of Wisconsin,

Savage concludes, "Attempt a Donkey Punch and it's likely that your asshole will wind up constricting spasmodically - around your cellmate's cock."

Non-sexual usage

Donkey punch was also one of several slang names for trades conducted by Enron.

In the scandal over Enron's manipulation of the electricity market in California; fraudulent schemes designed by Enron traders were given "colorful names" including "Donkey Punch". U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell, in a 2004 press release about the Enron hearings, identified the Donkey Punch as "a crude pornographic term", one of many "lewd acts" that Enron employees used to describe their schemes. Cantwell asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to take down the e-mails that were on its website due to the content.
