Intro To Anal Sex

Don't deprive yourself of pleasure. Anal sex is a gateway to a whole new world and type of stimulation that you will learn about in this guide.

Why does anal sex feel so good?

There is one quite powerful orgasmic button in our bodies, and, during anal sex, it’s stimulated from a new angle.

The anus is packed with sensitive nerve endings, but what you might not know is that the human body has something called the pudendal nerve.

This nerve bisects the clitoris/penis and goes all the way to the rectum. So it's basically the same orgasmic button - but on the other side.

How should you introduce anal sex to your partner?

There are many inhibitions regarding anal sex and most of them stem from ignorance. The truth is that anal sex can be just as safe and pleasurable as any other form of sex.

For those who've never tried it, anal sex may be intimidating — but so is almost anything else you try for the first time.

If you want to introduce anal into your lovemaking routine, be sure to get as many answers as you can before you have "the talk" with your partner.



Remember: It's perfectly normal to feel awkward about sexual topics. When you do bring it up, don't be too serious. Introduce the idea gradually. Take it easy.



Women and Anal Sex

The anus has a myriad of nerve endings that, like the vagina, can produce incredible sensations - including orgasms. In reality, good anal sex delivers great pleasure to both the "giver" and the "receiver". Moreover, many women find the "full" sensation of anal sex extremely arousing.

For women, it's best to practice first with a small, tapered toy with a flared base. Go for a metal or glass - firm and smooth material ensures easy and frictionless insertion.



Men and Anal Sex

Society puts a lot of pressure on men - to be considered truly "masculine", they need to conform to a strict code of sexual guidelines. In reality, when sex is involved, there are no absolutes. A man who engages in butt play may simply be sexually adventurous and free-spirited.

For men, it's best to start anal play with a prostate massager, ergonomically curved to hit the P-spot. Not only does it have health benefits, it also provides delightful sexual sensations.
