Anal Toys

Remember that phrase about opening the floodgates? Or trying to put a genie back in a bottle? Well, it wasn’t that long ago that a certain sex act was considered off-limit, even a bit taboo. But over the past twenty years it has gained in both popularity and recognition as an awesome way to experience pleasure on your own or with a partner.

We’re talking anal sex! These days, bum fun has become a big part of many people’s sex lives, so much so that it is close to being considered part of the mainstream! While people have been doing it through the back door forever, it has taken a new level of awareness and understanding of proper technique to bring the realities of anal pleasure to the masses.

Why should I try anal sex?

Because it feels great! Actually, that is an important point to understand. Many people fear anal sex, worrying that it will hurt. But when anal play is done properly, discomfort is minimal at first and the amazing feelings quickly take over for fantastic orgasmic adventures. The anus, for both women and men, offers a completely different set of sensations when stimulated. These new thrills can heighten existing sexual fun to great new levels! Also remember two great things: for women, anal play can be a great addition to what is happening to your vulva, clitoris and vagina, and for fellas, you’ve got a prostate in your ass that is just begging to be stimulated for mindblowing new thrills.

 

What anal toy is right for me?

If you are new to anal pleasure, the general rule of thumb is: something the size of your thumb! It takes time to work up to bigger anal toys, but trust, if you love it, you will! But when you start out, you will want a toy that is slim and not too long. Once you get used to the feelings of having something in your bum, you can increase the girth of your anal toys, as well as the different shapes. Many anal toys have a curved tip to reach extra sensitive spots.

 

Anal Lubes

How to use anal toys

The key thing to remember about using anal toys is that they don’t travel alone. Whenever you’re going to massage or penetrate your or someone else’s bum, be sure you’ve got plenty of anal lube on hand. The anus is not like the vagina, it doesn’t self-lubricate, so it is essential to start off by warming up the bum with lube, applying lube to the toy and taking note throughout your play of whether more lube is needed to keep things moving right.

It is also important that, regardless of whether you’re an anal novice or seasoned pro, most anal fun is a slow and patient pursuit. Always take your time properly teasing and exciting your partner before plunging a plug or beads into their bum. Anal toys are almost always preceded by fingers or tongue action to work your partner into a sexy lather before trying to slide a toy in their ass.

And that slow build can be some of the best fun. Remember, just because you’re focusing on your partner’s ass, doesn’t mean their penis or vulva should be ignored. Put the big tease on all of their genitals to send their excitement levels through the roof! Try bringing them close to orgasm before even putting the toy near them. The more worked up they are, the easier it will be to insert beads, a plug or a dildo. And the orgasms from that extra thrill will drive you both wild!
