Hey there, pals! Shimmer here, your go-to guide for all things pleasure. Today, let's chat about the intriguing world of anal play. Whether you're a seasoned explorer or just testing the waters, I've got some practical advice to make your journey enjoyable. Let's dive in!
So, you're curious about venturing into the realm of anal play? Awesome! Before you take the plunge, let's talk prep. Keep it simple; there's no need to go overboard with enemas or douching. Think of it like prepping for a casual hangout—just a quick freshen up will do.
Grab plenty of lube to ensure a smooth ride. It's the secret sauce that makes the whole experience more comfortable. Trust me on this one.
Trying anal play for the first time can feel odd at first, and it’s easy to tense up when you encounter a new sensation. But the key to pleasure here is to let your mind and body relax fully to make the experience as comfortable as possible. So, do something to help you ease into it— take a warm bath, breathe deep, light a scented candle, and go slooooooow.
A great place to start is to try some sensations using your fingers. Apply some lube, and begin without going in at all. Just warm up the area and play around with all the sensations available with external stimulation– and for many, that’s all they want! There is a world of pleasure to be had all with external play.
If you decide you do want to venture in, use plenty of lube, and keep that slow, gentle pace. Let yourself adjust to the new feelings before moving around too much, and keep breathing. Remember, this shouldn’t be painful– if things start to hurt at all, you’re going too fast or not using enough lube! Pause, take a deep breath, and get all the way relaxed again before continuing.
Now let's talk oral. Rimming can be deliciously intimate and exciting all on its own, not to mention it being a great way to warm up for an internal anal play session if that’s what you’re going for. But like any adventure, it needs some guidance.
Communication is key. Chat with your partner about their desires and establish a signal for course correction. Use a dental dam or a cut-open condom for some barrier protection against bacteria and STI’s, and take it slow. Take the time to enjoy the experience, letting your playmate steer the ship with their feedback.
Now, as we know, not every anal adventure leads to penetration. But for those who want that, insertable toys are a great way to start!
Not all toys are created equal, my friends. Safety is crucial. For anal play, look for toys with flared bases or sturdy handles. Just remember: a properly flared base is wider than the girthiest part of the insertable end of a toy. We don't want any unexpected detours, right?
When you’re choosing a toy, make sure it's made from body-safe materials like 100% silicone, stainless steel, or glass. Start with something small, and work your way up from there if you so choose. Vibration can also help your body relax, so anything with a built in vibrator is a fabulous option.
No matter how you decide to do anal play, it’s important not to cross- contaminate with other sensitive parts of the body (like a vagina, for example). If you’re switching between anal play and other kinds of play, be sure that you fully clean or switch toys, especially going from anal to something else. If you’re using your body as your tool, wash yourself off and switch barrier protection (like condoms, dental dams, or gloves) before diving in somewhere else.
Embarking on a new adventure, especially something as intimate as anal play, can be vulnerable. Embrace it! Vulnerability is a beautiful thing– it's an opportunity for deeper connection.
Be kind to yourself and anyone else on the journey with you. Communicate openly and adjust your course if needed.
There you have it, my darlings! Whether you're a seasoned explorer or a first-timer, may your anal adventures be filled with unimaginable pleasure and connection. Until next time, happy exploring!
