Everything You Need to Know About Anal Sex

by Bunny Hump on February 16, 2020

If you are curious about anal sex, you are not alone. Studies show that one out of three women from 19 to 44 ages have had anal sex at least once in their life. Luckily enough, anal sex is no longer a taboo or a topic of discussion as it was years back. People who have done it mention it as an addition to their sexual catalog. We normally walk before we run to walk. Similarly, we have to have some anal foreplay before we go to the actual anal sex. Anal sex is like any other, but let’s be clear; it requires a bit of extra preparation. If you are curious about anal sex and want to try it, here are a few things you need to know.

With Anal Sex, Start Slowly

You may be eager and excited to try anal and you just let it get in there — please don’t do that. Being in a new sex experience, it is essential to start early. Start gently and ease the tip of the penis or sex toy into the anus without going in too fast because the sphincter muscles are tightly closed. The importance of starting slowly is that it builds arousal. If you feel any pain or discomfort, it is essential to seek medical advice.

You Can Have an Orgasm

For some women, anal sex feels very good. You can have an intense orgasm through anal sex as through the vagina. During penetration, in the case of men, the prostate is stimulated and for women, the pudendal and perineal nerves that connect to the clitoris are stimulated. Studies also show that you can have an orgasm if you try different sexual acts.

Know and Learn Yourself

The anal canal is very tight. So going straight from not having anything, to having an erect penis can be painful and intense, if not done well. Therefore, before you have anal sex, it is essential to know your body. Explore the area and try out the terrain. The first thing you can start with try using your finger or a smaller sex toy (suggested: Luxe Beginner Plug Kit Anal Trainer) and work your way up. You can have your partner stock one finger inside your anus and continue adding more fingers until you feel comfortable. This will make the actual penetration easy and will let you know what you request from your partner to enjoy the experience. Exploring and knowing yourself is a good way to make you comfortable with the new feeling.

One important thing you need to know about your anus is that unlike the vagina, it does not lubricate itself. How lubricated the vagina gets when you get turned on, is not present during anal sex. Luckily enough, you can use a lube. Make sure you have lots of lube on-site when trying anal sex even if you are using sex toys or trying out with your fingers. Using lube will make you feel comfortable and safe. When you are using a condom, make sure you use a lube that is water-based and not oil-based. Lubricants make the experience better.

Use a Condom

Unless you have bonded with your partner, the anus is an area that you can be infected by, if there are any wounds or small fissures. Having unprotected anal sex puts you at a high risk of contracting an STD. Many people have this thought that because anal sex cannot result in pregnancy, condoms should not be used. This is a false impression. If you are using a strap-on, you should use a condom if different partners have used the sex toy. Using protection will prevent disease and help you enjoy the pleasure.


Trying something new, especially on a body part that you have never touched, can be very scary. In this case, try to relax as much as possible. You can worry later, so try and relax and let your anal muscles go. Do whatever you can to feel comfortable because when you are relaxed, you get to enjoy the experience.

You Can Vary Positions

The most important thing you need to remember is that anal sex does not need to be a doggy style. This style can feel uncomfortable for some people because it is not easy to get a face to face connection with this style. You can try out different sex positions like the cross, reverse cowgirl, or the spoon. Similar to vaginal sex, you can try different sex positions until you find one that you feel comfortable with. However, I would recommend starting with spooning with your partner lying behind you and with plenty of lube. This position is fun and very intimate. Therefore, if you are first-timer, try this and you will not regret it! Just like vaginal sex experimenting with possition and sex toys can be VERY rewarding!

Keep it Clean

Just like vaginal sex, you need to clean the anus and penis before trying anal sex. Avoid perfumes because they can dry out and result in an infection. Most people want to have proper preparation which may include enemas, anal douches and emptying the rectum. Therefore, talk to your partner and know what will make them feel comfortable.

Communication and Consent

Just like other sex experiences, anal sex should be consensual. If you are in a healthy relationship, you should communicate and establish trust between each other. If your partner goes down on you and goes an extra mile to make you enjoy, you can decide to pleasure him. If you don’t like it, then it is 100% fine to tell your partner that you are not comfortable trying it. Therefore, before your clothes off communicate with your partner.

Final Word

Anal sex is very common. Most people think that it only practices by gay men, which is not true. The most essential thing you need to consider is that you need to be excited and want to try any sexual act. Don’t be lured into doing anything or made feel like you have to. Trying out different sexual positions and sexual acts are fun and exciting, as long as each lover consents.

Experiment with Sex Toys

There is such a diversity of toys that can be experimented with that it is encouraged in almost all healthy sexual relationships. With the open communication all is possible, but toys can bring greater pleasure for both of you.
