Double penetration

Double penetration (sometimes called DP for short) is a sexual practice that consists of two people simultaneously penetrating another person.


The act usually involves the insertion and thrusting of two erect penises into a woman's vagina and anus simultaneously.[1] It is a common practice in pornography.[2][3] The term can also describe double penetration of a man's anus.[1]

Penetration can be carried out not only with a penis, but also with different parts of the body (hands, fingers) or with specific sex toys. The simultaneous penetration of a vagina by two penises is known as double vaginal penetration (DVP). Simultaneous penetration of the anus is known as double anal penetration (DAP).[4]

The sexual act may be pleasurable for the woman due to the simultaneous stimulation of the G-spot and the anterior fornix. The men may derive pleasure from the tightness of the vagina and/or anus, as well as from their penises rubbing together either in the same orifice or through the lining of the rectovaginal fascia.[5]

Representations of double penetration have been depicted in many Roman erotic objects, as well as in the Kama Sutra. The first filmed double penetration in history appeared in 1970, in the movie "Delphia the Greek", by director Lasse Braun.[6][non-primary source needed]
