Getting started with anal play
Anal play is anything to do with your butt. It doesn’t necessarily mean full on, penis-in-butt, penetration. It also includes rimming, fingering and using toys. You can enjoy anal play regardless of your gender or sexuality.
What misconceptions are there around anal play?
“I’m a straight man - if I do butt stuff that will make me gay”
The male g spot is the prostate, also known as the “p spot”. It’s located just inside the rectum and can be stimulated externally or internally, but is best stimulated through gentle touch in the rectum. Every man has this, regardless of if they’re queer or straight. As we said before, you don’t need a penis to penetrate you to stimulate it. You can do it yourself, with a female partner or with a toy. In fact, research tells us that anal stimulation can strengthen penile orgasms by 30%! So tell us, how is exploring your body’s full potential to unleash maximum pleasure a gay act?
Let’s be honest, poop comes out of your bum. So preparing for anal play is important, or it could get dirty. As long as you are washing well beforehand, douching and emptying your bowels, you probably won’t have any issues. If you’re still worried, put a towel down.
It shouldn’t. Like with any type of sex, foreplay is very important. Especially if you’re new to anal play and your body isn’t used to it yet. Take it slow and consider using an anal starter kit, like this one. Remember too, the butt isn’t self lubricating like the vagina, so lube is a must!
Where do I start?
If you’re nervous, we advise exploring solo first. You can do this with your fingers or with a toy. We have loads of them available right here, on our website. You can take your pick between vibrating dildos, butt plugs, anal beads… or even a starter pack that contains everything you need.
Wishing you a butt load of fun and pleasure,
