Anal sex encompasses more than just inserting a penis in someone’s anus. Fingers, toys, tongues, and external stimulation all qualify as backdoor biz.
If you’re curious about giving anal a go, it’s important to know the facts and how to stay safe before you dive in. Here’s a guide to doing the deed with the derriere.
How to ease into anal sex safely.
At least 10 to 15 minutes of foreplay before inserting anything — fingers, sex toys, a penis — into the anus. “The more aroused we are, the more relaxed the muscles around the anus become.”
Because the rectum doesn’t self-lubricate like other areas of the body, it can get dry quickly. In addition to relaxation and arousal, another key to preventing any pain is to keep things well-oiled by using a lot of lube.
If you’ve never experienced anything entering your behind, you’ll probably want to go easy. And the receiver should control the movement.
