So You Want to Try Anal Sex?

It could be likely that we all have heard of that friend-of-a-friend who had anal sex with disastrous results, and it might have put off the practice for life. But if you’re curious, then you need to take a look at the right anal sex tips, and make preparations.

From finding the right attitude to eating the right diet, there are many tips for anal sex, and we take a look at some of them here, so you can go forth and explore without fear!


  1. Overprepare

Practice make perfect, and not just so that you know what to do when the heat of the moment takes you there, but also because practice will tell you what feels good for you and what doesn’t. Start with anal play and a small toy, and increase the size as you feel more comfortable until you’re ready for partnered anal sex.


  1. Prepare more

It might be that that story from friend-of-a-friend involved unfortunate pooping, and it is obviously a concern for anal initiates. If you’re planning a steamy backdoor encounter, then a few hours before, giving yourself a warm water enema will help avoid that particular situation. Ensure you give yourself plenty of time to allow the water to leave your body!


  1. Take it Slow

So, you feel you’re ready? Amazing, but whether you’re on the receiving or giving end, make sure you take it slow to ensure that everyone is comfortable. Go slow and explore, and listen to your partner.


  1. Always lube

Unlike the vagina, the anus is not self-lubricating, so lube is not just advised, it is a must-have. As well as using plenty of lube, always use a condom.


  1. Check in With Your Partner

Check-in with your partner multiple times, regardless of if youre giving or receiving. A partner who takes feedback well, and backs off if anything feels uncomfortable, is just as important as preparing with anal toys before partner play.
