Anal Sex InformationOver time millions of men and woman have actively participated and enjoyed anal sex. However this subject has been regarded as the biggest "taboo" in sexual history. We want you to enjoy anal sex and have put together a guide of "do's and don'ts" to help you make it more enjoyable and safer for yourself and others.
Tip No1: Play Safe
STD's are also a major concern with anal sex. This isn't just limited to AIDS, herpes, genital warts, syphilis, gonorrhoea, etc. which can all be transmitted through anal sex. Safe sex should always be practiced when giving anal sex. It's not worth the risk to you or your partner.
Tip No2: Lube, lube, lube
All kinds of lube are used for anal sex, from Saliva to Vaseline to high-tech silicone-based lubes. We strongly recommend spending a little money to get a high quality water-based lubricant; if you use an Oil or Petroleum based lubricant like Vaseline it will degrade the latex in a condom, destroying its usefulness. We recommend products like Aquaglide Anal or Sliquid Sassy, both available online. Note, a condom may be "lubricated", they typically don't offer enough lube for anal sex.
There are some specialty lubes designed for anal sex that include an anaesthetic to numb the sensation and make anal sex less painful. We advise against these products. The simple fact is pain is a way of your body telling you that something's wrong. If you're in pain during anal sex, you need to focus on solving the root problems, not anaesthetising yourself so it's easier to endure.
Tip No3: Start Small
As your partner gets used to your fingers, you might graduate to a butt plug or a small dildo. Butt plugs and Dildos are available in all shapes and sizes. Have a look around together on our site to get one you both feel comfortable with. Remember, don't put the dildo into the vagina after putting it into the anus. The safest way is to put a condom on the dildo before using it, and to wash it thoroughly immediately after.
Tip No4: Turnabout is Fair Play
Your partner is much more likely to consent to anal sex if they have seen that you're open to being on the receiving end as well. Encourage them to use their fingers inside you, or even purchase a butt plug or small dildo and let them use that. Of course, anal play on yourself is a great way to learn how anal sex feels and to learn how to make it more comfortable for your partner. You might also be surprised just how much you like it…
Tip No5: Clear the Way
Tip No6: Relax
