Definition - What does Analingus mean?

Analingus is a form of oral sex where the tongue is used to stimulate a sexual partner's anus or perineum. Because of the many erotic nerve endings found in the anal area of both men and women, oral stimulation of this area (analingus) can be quite pleasurable.

Analingus is also commonly referred to as rimming, tossing the salad, or a rim job.

Kinkly explains Analingus

The practice of analingus does not come without risks. Because of the possible presence of fecal bacteria, the practice poses a risk of gastrointestinal illnesses. This can be reduced through the use of dental dams or plastic wrap. There is also a risk of the transmission of STDs such as herpes and syphilis.

It is also important that those who practice analingus maintain good oral health and that the receiving partner has bathed prior to engaging in this sexual act.
