Anal sex and anal play isn't like PIV sex in many ways. The anus often needs to learn how to relax to accept pleasure.
With anal training, one's partner or oneself gradually plays with the anus, starting with small things, or just playing with the opening, so that pleasure comes naturally with no pain. Gradually, larger toys or more fingers and eventually a penis or dildo or larger plug can be introduced.
It's the way a lot of couples get into anal play.
Our training took about a month or more from just rimming or simulated rimming through digital penetration and eventually to penis and toys. Everybody's body and mind and love map is different, so the time will vary.
Lube, as is always said, is absolutely necessary.
