The anus is a part of our body full of nerve endings. This means that, if we know how to stimulate it, it can be a source of great pleasure both in foreplay and in anal sex. But for this practice to cloud your mind with excitement, there are a few things you should know. Do you have questions about how to stimulate the anus? We explain it to you in this article.
Why do you have to stimulate the anus before anal sex?
If you want to practice anal sex or start any practice with the protagonist’s anus, you have to take into account that it is very important to stimulate it well beforehand. Although, as we have said, it is an area with many nerve endings and, therefore, very sensitive and suitable for pleasure, it does not have the lubrication that naturally occurs in the genitals. That is why prior stimulation helps to prepare the area and relax it, little by little, to improve its dilation and thus be able to have, if we want, a pleasant penetration without discomfort.
However, you don’t have to focus only on getting a penetration. The anus can function as a very powerful erogenous zone and its stimulation can be included as part of foreplay or at the same time as vaginal penetration, if applicable. For that we can caress it with our fingers, introduce them, use a sex toy or, why not, stimulate it with our mouth to have oral sex.
Tips to stimulate the anus
Do you want to learn more about anus stimulation ? Here are some tips so that, whether you want foreplay or penetration, this experience is a success for both you and your partner or partners. You will see how the excitement soars!
Relax and enjoy
Although less and less, it is true that there are still people with a certain fear of anal sex because they think it will hurt or that it is an exclusive practice of homosexual relationships. Nothing is further from reality! In any case, it may be a good idea to talk to your partner or partners beforehand so that it is a consensual practice.
Once the decision is made, get ready to enjoy and always express what you like and what you don’t. Don’t be embarrassed and, if you feel embarrassed to say it with words, indicate it with moans or, directly, moving or withdrawing your hands, making gestures, etc. What it is about is that all participants feel comfortable.
Take time for the preliminaries
There is no reason to go directly to an anal penetration. It is often much more exciting to take a detour. The preliminary games are all the caresses, kisses and everything you can think of that you can do before reaching a penetration. Because they are interesting? Because by going up and down the rhythm you trigger the excitement , increasing the desire for penetration to finally arrive.
You can choose to stimulate different areas of your partner’s body or your own, or focus directly on the anus, for example, gently massaging the area, lubricating your finger and introducing it little by little, or practicing oral sex directly into the anus, the famous “rimming”, which, like oral sex on the genitals, can make the other person tremble with pleasure.
Get your hands on sex toys
You can use some specific sex toys for the anus because they help it dilate. Include them in the preliminaries and, in this way, the anus will be more prepared for the moment in which you want to reach penetration.
Go from less to more
Once you focus on the anus, go little by little. If you are giving anal sex, look at how it is being received to know if you can continue or better slow down. On the contrary, if it is you who receives it, set the pace, for example, getting closer or further away. And, of course, you can and should always say directly if you like it, if you want faster, slower, etc.
Do not forget the lubricant for greater anal pleasure
Among the tips for anal stimulation can not miss the use of lubricant. As we mentioned at the beginning, the anus is a very sensitive area but it does not have natural lubrication, so it is advisable to add it to enjoy sex more, whether you want anal stimulation or if you intend to prepare for penetration. Durex lubricants are suitable for anal sex, as well as for vaginal and oral sex, but in our range we have one that is especially recommended for anal penetration: Durex Perfect Connection. This silicone-based lubricant provides lubrication that does not dry out easily and is longer lasting than water-based lubricants (1) and is compatible with all condoms in the Durex range.
Remember that during anal sex it is also important to use a condom to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections or STIs. It is considered a risky practice, since it is easier for small injuries to occur, which can facilitate the transmission of infections, as there is greater friction due to the characteristics of the area. To reduce the risk, it is recommended to always use a condom during the entire sexual encounter. You can opt for any of the condoms in the Durex range or specifically choose Durex Perfect Connection condoms, which are thicker and have extra silicone-based lubrication, just what you need for safer, pleasurable anal sex.
