Anal play refers to any sexual activity that involves the stimulation of the anus. Both females and males can participate in anal play, regardless of their sexual orientation. Anal play can be very pleasurable, mainly because this area is full of nerves. Women find anal stimulation pleasurable because it can indirectly stimulate the G-spot, while men may find it pleasurable because it directly stimulates the prostate or P-spot.
Some forms of anal play include anal sex, anal fingering, anal fisting, and anal douching. Pegging is also a form of anal play.
