Donkey punch is slang term for an apocryphal and potentially lethal sexual practice supposedly performed during anal or vaginal sex. The purported practice involves the penetrating partner punching the receiving partner in the back of the head or neck (what is known in boxing as a rabbit punch, after a technique to kill rabbits). The alleged goal is to cause the receiving partner's anal passage to tense up, thereby increasing the pleasure of the penetrating partner; however, there is no medical evidence that it works, or, for that matter, any reason that it would. When used, the donkey punch is almost exclusively executed during or just before the orgasm of the penetrating partner (see orgasm control).

Medical and legal risks

Sex advice columnist Dan Savage discussed the donkey punch 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 Jeffrey Bahr, a faculty member at the Medical College of Wisconsin

To the best of my knowledge, there is no definitive reflex in the human neurophysiology that induces involuntary tightening of the anal sphincter after receiving blunt-force trauma to the occiput, or back of the head.... Trauma to any part of the head can have serious ramifications. Pain, intracranial hemorrhage, memory loss, neck injury, and possibly some related sensory deficits in the arms and legs. A strong enough blow to the back of an unsuspecting person's head could result in a cervical (vertebral) fracture which, I hope most people know, could cause paralysis or even death.

Non-sexual usage

Donkey punch was also one of several slang names for trades conducted by Enron (Energy Company).

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." United States 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.
