Whether you've always wanted to try it with your partner or not fussed, anal sex is one of the most misunderstood and taboo subject. If you're looking to spice things up in the bedroom or want to try something new, here are 5 things you need to know about anal sex:
There are thousands of nerve endings in and around your anus which can provide you maximum pleasure. Most of these nerve endings are concentrated around the opening and outer part of the rectum. Whether it's your first time or you're a seasoned pro, preparing for anal sex is key. To help get you started, make sure that you are fully relaxed. Once fully relaxed, have your partner start with a finger or a slim sex toy to help you get acquainted with the feeling. As your anal canal is very tight, the ring of muscle needs to be relaxed to allow something to pass through it. Performing the act without using a silicone-based lubricant can be a painful experience, if not done correctly.
You need a lot of lube
Unlike the vagina, the anus cannot naturally self-lubricate and therefore needs plenty of lube to help keep intimacy with your partner more pleasurable. However, drying up midway can cause pain and tearing of the anal tissue if lube is not re-applied. If you need to take several breaks along the way to re-apply lube, don't fret as this will give you and your partner time to reassure one another that things are going well. If you are looking for a lube that well help prolong your lovemaking session, try a silicone based lubricant. Worried that you're using too much lube and don't want to ruin your sheets? Add a towel before you start and make sure that you have the lube on hand.
