Anal Sex 101: Time to Get on the Booty Train

 

Here’s a fun fact: the anal walls are rich in concentrated nerve endings that when stimulated, are able to give a feeling of intense pleasure. It’s a wonder anal sex isn’t as widespread as your standard, run-of-the-mill sex. 

Oddly enough, the anal region is one of the areas people would shy away from during sexual activities despite it having tons of sexually arousing nerve endings. Be it the stigma from the 80’s that it’s a “gay only” activity or that it’s where excrement comes from and therefore unsanitary - the anus does get some bad rap. This fear gets in the way of sexual discovery. Here we’ll discuss the wonders of anal sex for both men and women.

An erogenous zone across many other cultures - even for women

Yup, you read that right. Gone is the misconception that anal sex is only pleasurable for people with prostates. When done right, anal stimulation has been said to trigger the same nerve pathways that produces the same sensations as a deep-vaginal orgasm. There is even some research to suggest that women who engage in anal sex have more orgasms in general compared to their counterparts who don’t engage in it.

And because this is such a rare and almost sacred act, there are some women who consider this a very intimate moment with their partner. Something reserved for partners they truly love, trust, and hold a special place in their lives.

A deep and powerful sensation for the male prostate

As we all know, gay men love anal because when it hits the prostate just right, it produces pleasurable sensations equal to that of the clitoris in females when stimulated. The prostate is a man’s pleasure center and it absolutely goes to waste if straight men are afraid of discovering this part of themselves because of fear of being labelled as gay.

A quick guide for getting on the booty train

Okay, so you’ve decided that maybe getting on the booty train is something that you do want to try but you don’t know where and how to start. Here’s a quick 411 on how to practice safe anal sex:

Wash up! Your anus is where excrement comes from and is not usually the best smelling part of your body. If you want to try this with a partner, it’s best to clean that general area first, as well as inside to make sure no bits and pieces are still in there. Oh, and try not to poop a few hours before your session - you already know why!
  • Lube up! Unlike the female genitalia, the anus does not self-lubricate. So for very obvious reasons (ie., tears, cuts, and pain), you’ll need lube. Quick tip: water-based lube is safe for condom and sex toy use.
  • Go slow. Especially when your partner (or toy) is thicc. We love a thick man, but maybe not when it comes to taking it up the ass. Start off with tongue and fingers for foreplay not only to get you excited, but to prep the anal opening for a bigger organ.
  • Try out a non-penetrative anal play first. If this is your first time, try and give lighter anal play a try, either with a partner or by yourself. This will help give you an idea of a lower pressure sensation of anal stimulation.
  • You might bleed. A little blood during anal play or sex isn’t abnormal, these are anal tears that can come with anal sex. It’s mildly uncomfortable, especially when you’re pooping, but should stop after a few days. If you experience continuous bleeding, it’s best to see a doctor.
  • If it’s painful, you’re doing it wrong. And you must stop. Try to get the hang of it first before putting it all in.
  • Don’t go from anal to vaginal. You know when we were kids and we were taught cross-pollination with flowers? Think about that but bacteria from the butt to the vagina. That just opens up a can of so many vaginal infections.
