Anal play requires lube, patience, and trust. You can explore alone or with a partner. You can use fingers or you can check out the best anal toys listed in this article.
Trends in sexuality come and go, but the pleasure you experience will always be around. With the popularity of "50 Shades of Grey" around 2012, there was a real uptick of interest and participation in kinky activities. With more couples starting to open up to exploration of their sexuality, even more activities are being added to the standard bedroom line-up. In particular, anal sex in gaining in popularity.
Not only does anal sex offer the "naughty" aspect of enjoying yourself, but the anal area is filled with pleasurable nerves that can make the entire experience even better. As long as you explore the area with patience and trust, you'll probably find that you enjoy anal pleasure as well. (If you don't, that's just fine too! Not every type of pleasure is for everyone.)
When you're thinking about exploring the anal area, many experts recommend that you take your first journeys alone. This will allow you to take your time without worrying about having another person present. You won't feel any pressure to enjoy something. You'll have the freedom to switch around to different activities or take things extremely slow. Of course, if you'd rather explore with your partner, that's also fine. Whatever makes you most comfortable is exactly what you should be doing.
Any anal play should be met with a large amount of lubricant and a large amount of patience. Preceding any anal play with a massage or sensual activity is always an advisable activity. The anal area is a ring of muscle. In order to enjoy pleasurable anal play, it's important that everyone be relaxed and trusting. You may also want to discuss with your partner, if you're including your partner, about the importance of ending early if either you becomes uncomfortable or something starts to hurt. It's important to listen to your body. This short guide about how to have anal sex will help you get prepared.
Some people just use their fingers when exploring anal pleasure, but you can take your pleasure to higher levels (and avoid awkward wrist positions) by using anal sex toys. Some of the anal toy types include:
Designed to be slid into the butt and left there, butt plugs help familiarize the anal muscles with being opened wider than usual. A lot of people find this sensation extremely pleasurable. With the discreet design of butt plugs, people can also wear butt plugs underneath their clothing while doing chores or going out on a date. The ability of discreet use makes this a fun addition to those couples who love some public experimentation.
Many popular sex toy retailers sell a range of different butt plugs at affordable prices. Look for toys made of body-safe, non-porous materials, like silicone, steel or glass. If you're a beginner, find a toy with a sleeker, more tapered shape. We also recommend Blush's Avant line, such as the Avant Pride Beyond.
A strand of small beads attached together on a long strand, anal beads are inserted into the butt one-at-a-time. Lots of people enjoy the sensation of the body readjusting with each new insertion. For that reason, many anal beads are created with a gradually expanding diameter. As you insert each bead, the beads get larger and larger. Many anal bead toys are also equipped with a simple handle to remove the beads when you're finished using them.
When selecting anal beads, make sure your beads are high-quality and very durable. You don't want your strand of beads to break mid-use. Try a simple set of silicone anal beads.
