First and foremost ALWAYS lubricate. Unlike the vagina the rectum does NOT have a natural lubricant. Lack of lubrication can lead to hemorrhoids, bleeding, and tearing. Now that lube is covered, A great way for you and or a partner to start is by exploring anus play, by rubbing over the anus with a finger or tongue or by sticking a finger inside. This can help you get familiar with the possibly new sensation. It’s important to be relaxed in this situation as the sphincter tightens when tense, which can cause tearing and pain. Mindset is important here, trust is important here. If you are playing solo don’t be disappointed if you didn’t go as far as you wanted, pace yourself, no one is watching. If you are with a partner create a safe word and take it slowwww. REMINDER: If you are the one doing the penetrating continue to check in, YOU are in the position to make sure this stays safe and consensual. After you’ve gotten comfortable move up to anal plugs, this will help stretch your rectum and give you that full feeling allowing you to once again let your body adjust to these new sensations. Using anal beads is a GREAT way for you to get familiar with depth. Make sure your anal toys have a BASE. This will prevent toys getting stuck inside! Once you’re comfortable with toys and fingers moving onto phallic shaped toys or a penis is the next step! Woohoo! HYGIENE TIPS: NEVER go from anal to vaginal play. Wash your penis, toys, or hands after or you WILL risk infection. For easy clean up empty your bowels hours before anal play and wash your anal area thoroughly with with soap and water. For deeper cleaning use a water enema a few hours before anal play. You do NOT need a lot. Use gloves for your hands (reminder if you use latex gloves, oil based lubes will wear them down). Use condoms for your penis or phallic shaped toys. Use a dental dam for tongue to anus play. Accidents can still happen so if it does don’t panic, be mindful that this could happen before agreeing to anal sex. Barriers make clean up easier, if you didn’t use any barriers wash up and shower. Remember this is a very human response.
