She's always one step ahead when it comes to trends, and apparently that includes kinky sex!

Gwyneth Paltrow published her annual Sex Issue for Goop on Thursday, and there's a very lengthy portion of the newsletter dedicated to anal sex. Yes, you read that right... the actress isn't afraid to get freaky!

Psychoanalyst and author Paul Joannides aided a Q&A discussion on the topic, and we have a feeling more than a few Brentwood moms got some bright ideas.

"If anal turns you on, you are definitely not alone. First it was shocking, then it was having a cultural moment, now it’s practically standard in the modern bedroom repertoire — or so a quick scan of any media, from porn to HBO, will tell you,” the article says.

"Understand that the way you see anal sex portrayed in porn is about as real as how they drive cars in the The Fast and the Furious. [They don’t] show communication, feedback, or trust. Couples who do not have excellent sexual communication, who don’t freely give and receive feedback about what feels good and what doesn’t, and who don’t have a high level of trust should not be having anal sex," Joannides cautions.

So what happens if you want to give it a whirl?

"Both of you should read all you can about it first. Spend a few weeks helping the receiving partner…relax. Make sure you and your partner have great sexual communication, trust, and that you both want to do it, as opposed to one trying to pressure the other, or not wanting to do it but doing it because you are afraid your partner will find someone else who will. Do not do it drunk or stoned… If it doesn’t feel good when it’s happening, stop," he explains.

We're starting to get a better understanding of how Gwyneth bagged all those Hollywood hunks back in the day!
