Anal sex is one of the most pleasurable of experiences for any gender alike when it is approached with the care and attention this delicate practice deserves.
The anus is incredibly sensitive, packing a ton of nerve endings that, when triggered, take you to newfound realms of sensation and sensuality. But it’s not as simple as just sticking something in there and hoping for the best, and you must prepare for anal sex accordingly!
Anal takes practice, and for it to provide or help induce a soul-shivering orgasm, it takes a lot of practice.
From anal training toys and anal dildos to anal fingering and anything in between, we’re going to showcase the best ways how to prepare for anal sex so that this practice is left with an aura of bliss and enticement when you are done, something that just might become a definitive part of your sexual routine.
How To Prepare For Anal Sex
The first step to practicing anal sex is the recognition that it is really something you want to try. And I say ‘really’ because anal often pops into most of our heads when our minds drift into sexual thought patterns, but there’s a big difference between wanting anal sex to the brink of imagination, and wanting it enough to manifest it into your sexual reality.
Start by recognizing that you want to try anal, and use this recognition as a driving force to further build upon the fact that you must be intentional with this practice, as there are going to be other steps that you should take to prepare for anal sex.
When anal sex is new, the journey into the pleasures of anal can be extremely intimidating, feel weird, or even make you feel silly. In an effort to break this barrier, the next best step in warming up for anal is to practice self-touch.
But just because you are dealing with only yourself here doesn’t mean that you have to be fast or aggressive in your approach! Seriously, take your time, and begin exploring your anal region with subtle and calm methods of self-touch.
Use your finger to play around your anal opening. Pleasure your genitals as you do so, and become comfortable with both feeling your butthole with your hand, and more importantly, feeling what a hand is like on your butthole!
Rub the area lightly with a finger, gently tap it. Don’t insert anything quite yet, and instead, just apply a small amount of pressure with your finger.
This will greatly increase your overall comfort regarding anal sex, and will act as one of the best beginning methods to practice anal play.
Self Touch- Level Two!
So now you are comfortable with your anal region, and you have spent plenty of time touching the area with your finger, and now feel ready to progress further, its time to up the anty a bit!
Still practicing self-touch and self-play before introducing a partner is always the best method for warming up to anal sex, but now it is time to explore the blissful feeling of what it feels like to have something massage the wondrous anal cavity from inside.
It’s time for insertion, but don’t grab your favorite dildo quite yet!
Instead, you should begin with light anal fingering. Use more than enough lube during your solo masturbation, and practice the same anal fingering techniques as above, but this time insert your finger into your anal cavity once you’ve played around a bit.
You might be surprised at just how amazing this feels, and use your finger to initiate different movements. In and out, left and right, shallow and deep.
Take your time warming up, and with enough lube, you will quickly begin to realize that anal sex is invigorating, and it adds an insane element of incredible pleasure to genital sex. Once you are comfortable with anal fingering, you what it feels like to have something in your butt, you will ready yourself for the next step in warming up for anal:
Time for the Toys!
The best way to do this is to practice with toys of similar size and structure.
But again, don’t go straight for your dildo, and instead, the first step in warming up for anal through the use of anal sex toys is to begin with an anal training kit.
These kits feature varying sizes of butt plugs or anal beads, which is important as these toys prevent anything from being lost in your anal cavity, and the varying sizes allow you to up the intensity with practice to your personal likings.
By starting small, your anus will become used to the sensations, and so will you, and this will allow you to build upon the size of the toys until you reach something similar to that of a penis or a dildo.
If you have reached the end of your anal training kit, then it might just be time to explore the full depth of anal by then using a life-like dildo to ready yourself for the real deal!
Practice with these toys as absolutely as much as possible, and only progress into real anal sex with a partner when you feel completely at ease with your anal comfortability and skills.
When alas introducing a partner, you clearly don’t want to jump straight into anal sex.
With anal, you usually have to do some preparing, so part of warming up for anal sex with a partner is talking about anal!
Converse about the subject to agree upon the fact that it is something you wish to try, and then set aside a particular sex time of which you plan to do so.
This will allow you to ensure that you have plenty of lube on deck, and that you can clean the area well and use an enema if needed for optimal cleanliness and success.
Before getting right into the real deal, you of course need to warm up!
Standard foreplay relaxes your body and turns you on, promoting blood flow to the genital and anal regions that is essential to relaxation and sensation. Things like intimate kissing, touching over the clothing, whispering a little bit of dirty talk into their ears.
And then, once you have blown past the initial foreplay, it’s time for foreplay round two!
This foreplay will focus specifically on your anal cavity.
You might be used to touching your own anus, but It’s important to now get used to what it feels like having someone else touch and play with it, as this is an entirely different sensation!
Have them practice the same methods of warming up for anal sex that you did to yourself when in a sexual interaction. Start with only touching before progressing into anal fingering with plenty of lube.
You will absolutely know when you feel relaxed, comfortable, and warmed up enough for them to proceed to the real deal. Once that’s the case, let it be known, and do take your time when progressing into anal sex with another person.
Never be shy to communicate how it feels, and if it hurts or is uncomfortable, it is more than okay to save the butt sex for another day, choosing to instead continue warming up until you feel ready!
