Is Anal Play for you?

Posted by Carla Martin on

Anal sex, usually just hearing the words make many people cringe. Merely the idea of anything other than soap and water getting near their rear end puts a sour taste in their mouth, but plenty of others say they love the intense sensation and pleasure they get from partaking in anal penetration. Also, because it is so taboo, anal sex might actually help partners who participate in the act feel closer and more emotionally bonded to each other.

 Preconceived Notion of Anal:

One of the most deceitful preconceived notions of intercourse via the anus is the thought of coming in contact with fecal matter. The anus and lower part of the rectum actually have very little fecal material in them. The rectum is a temporary storage area for the stool that is ready to leave the body. If you are healthy, and you don't have diarrhea, constipation, or intestinal distress, then once you've released your bowels, the rectum is left empty, and pretty much clean, until the next load of waste comes. Regardless, if you are still concerned, you can always have a bowel movement prior, followed by an enema (may cause irritation of the anus and bowels).

Just because the rectum is left pretty much clean after a bowel movement, that doesn't mean you should transfer elements into the vagina by having anal sex and then vaginal sex. They are two different environments, even microscopic fecal elements can cause vaginal infection. A great way to be safe and avoid causing infections, before vaginal re-entry, the giver should wash up with antimicrobial soap, or just end your sexual exploits for the evening with anal penetration.

The Key to Entry:

The biggest fear anal sex brings to the minds of most people, which prevents them from even trying it, is the "pain". Anal sex is not painful if you are taking the right steps in preparing, as well as, starting in the correct manner. When having anal sex, three things are very important: taking it slowly, using a lot of lubricant, and staying relaxed, both mentally and physically. The anus, unlike the vagina, does not self lubricate, so to help prevent tearing, and the pain, we highly suggest using a silicone based lubricant, and lots of it, for this kind works the best for anal penetration. Also, the receiver needs to be super relaxed, so that the muscles around the anus are not so tight. Continually attempting anal sex will help your anus to learn to become more relaxed, but much of that has to do with your own ability to relax yourself mentally for the act.

How To Start Anal Penetration:

  1. Start by gently stroking and massaging the anus.
  2. Then, slowly slip in a finger and see how your partner likes it.
  3. If that goes well, you can begin to put the head of your penis inside the sphincter.
  4. Move very, very slowly, fast movements will hurt.
  5. Anal sex needs some time to get used to; the slower you move, the more time, and the more lube you use, the better your chances of enjoying it!

Anal Fun Fact:

Most STDs are transferable through the anus, more so than through the vagina, because the lining of the anus is thinner and can be broken more easily if there is to much dry friction occurring.

Conclusion:

There are a lot of men and women who really enjoy anal penetration. The anus has an abundance of nerve endings, which means it is sensitive to the touch, so most stimulation of the anus feels amazing, and gives intense pleasure.
