Rough sex takes place when the action is rough, fast, and hard. Rough sex may include spanking, whipping, choking or biting. It is a type of BDSM (bondage, discipline, domination, and submission) and the most extreme form of sex. Rough sex is also known as spunk play, anal sex or hard-core sex.

Rough sex is considered to be much more erotic than traditional sex, but there is a risk of getting hurt. Rough sex can be dangerous and should only be practiced with a partner who is experienced and knows how to handle the situation. It can be risky to rough sex because it is hard to accurately gauge the strength or endurance of the partner. Rough sex can also be dangerous if it goes too far and causes the partners pain.
