Definition - What does Postillionage mean?

Postillionage is the act of stimulating the anus and rectum. This act can be performed alone during masturbation or with a partner during foreplay, intercourse, and oral sex. Postillionage is often very pleasurable because of the high number of nerve endings in this area.

There are a number of different ways to perform postillionage. For instance, the anus can simply be stroked or massaged with no penetration. The anus and rectum can also be penetrated with items like fingers, butt plugs, vibrators, and prostate stimulators.

Kinkly explains Postillionage

While postillionage can be very pleasurable for both men and women, it should be approached with some caution. The anus and rectum are very delicate, and they can easily be damaged during rough play. To make tears and damage to the sphincter and rectal tissues less likely, always use a good personal lubricant when participating in anal play. Vigorous thrusting should also never be used during any type of anal play, since this can also cause tears or other damage to the area. Finally, never insert a small object into the rectum that isn't specifically designed for this purpose. Special anal sex toys, like anal vibrators and butt plugs, are designed with a wide or flared base, which makes it almost impossible for them to become "lost" in the rectum.
