It’s important to note that everyone’s body is different, and what works for one person may not work for another. It’s also important to communicate with your partner and only engage in sexual activities that you are comfortable with. The steps below provide some simple advice for when knocking on the back door:
1. Communicate with your partner: Before engaging in any sexual activity, it’s important to have a conversation with your partner about what you both feel comfortable with. This can include discussing what you both enjoy, what you don’t like, and any concerns or questions you may have.
2. Prepare: Make sure you have been to number two 2-4 hours before engaging in anal sex. You can also use an anal douche to further ensure you are clean on the back-end. It’s worth noting here that we are not all the same, and function differently. Take some time to work out how your own body works and this will also help.
3. Use plenty of lubricant: The anus does not produce its own natural lubrication, so it’s important to use plenty of water-based or silicone-based lubricant to prevent discomfort or injury. Apply a generous amount of lube to the anus and to the penetrating partner’s penis or sex toy.
4. Start with gentle stimulation: If you’re new to anal sex, it’s a good idea to start with gentle stimulation and work your way up to penetration. This can include using fingers or a small butt plug to help relax the muscles around the anus.
5. Practice relaxation techniques: The muscles around the anus can be tense, so it’s important to practice relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, yoga, or meditation to help relax your body.
6. Use protection: Like with any sexual activity, it’s important to use protection to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Use a latex or polyurethane condom on the penetrating partner’s penis or sex toy.
7. Take it slow: It’s important to take your time and go slow during anal sex. This can help prevent pain, discomfort, or injury. If at any point during the activity you feel uncomfortable, it’s okay to stop and take a break.
8. Clean up afterward: After anal sex, it’s important to clean up thoroughly to prevent the spread of bacteria. This can include taking a shower, using a bidet or wet wipes, and washing your hands. Remember, communication, consent, and mutual respect are key to a positive sexual experience.
