Out of all the items on the sexual menu, anal gets arguably the worst rapan undeserved stigma that likely comes from a widespread lack of knowledge about butt stuff. According to Alicia Sinclair—a certified sex educator and founder of b-Vibea sex toy company dedicated to anal play—one common explanation for squeamishness is a lack of preparedness.
When people start experimenting with sex, they typically confine touching to their genitalia. This leaves out an orifice that, for many, turns out to be pretty pleasurable. Vaginal sex tends to feel better when people play around with their own bodies before enlisting a partner, building up to penetration.
One of the stories she hears most often, Sinclair said, is agreeing to anal to please a partner and ending up with a painful experience because both parties wandered into the act blind. Do your research before you get started, reading up on any elements that might make you nervous or about which you might have questions. Sinclair suggests testing the waters while you shower. Naturally, Sinclair likes butt plugs for escalating anal pleasure but recommends taking yours for a spin by yourself first.
Familiarize yourself with what might be a very new sensation before involving a partner. But the thing is, you can. I remember the details vividly enough that I could likely convince a stranger I was there. You may have heard some version of this same story, and you may worry that anal sex will trigger the kind of shitty interruption that becomes fodder for adolescent sleepovers from now until forever. Dietary irregularities! Constipation never strikes at sex-conducive moments! Enemas might also appeal, but NB: Use too much water, and you might invite more mess.
Sinclair recommends just a couple cups of warm water test it on your wrist one to two hours before anal play. Follow the instructions on an enema bulb for more specific guidance. And, if you are using toys, please do wash them in hot soapy water between uses.
Many readers will be unused to an object of any size penetrating their anus. The anus does not self-lubricate, and unlubricated penetration can translate to tears in anal tissue that make it much easier to spread STIs. Add lube, liberally, keeping in mind that water-based lubes—while great for silicone sex toys—evaporate quickly and require frequent reapplication.
The anus houses different bacteria than the vagina does and introducing microbes from the former into the latter can result in uncomfortable infections like bacterial vaginosis. When engaging in butt stuff, wash hands and genitals before switching from orifice to orifice, and use a fresh condom or gloves when changing holes.
