Anal sex or even just anal play is something that many couples wish to try out; it’s easy to understand why that would be the case because anal play when done right can be immensely enjoyable. In both females and males, there are many nerve endings in the anal area that when stimulated can give immense pleasure.
However, while anal play can have spectacular results, it’s also not something that should be tried without discussion because the anal area does require an element of ‘training’. You need to prepare the area for any insertion of object, be it a finger or a toy like a vibrator. Use of lube and lots of it is advisable also to make it all the more comfortable and of course enjoyable.
Expanding one’s horizons in their sexual exploits is something that helps along a relationship but at its core, communication is key. Talk to your partner about what you like and what you don’t like and if for whatever reason, you don’t enjoy anal play, tell them! Talk it through and perhaps it can be modified so that you are 100% comfortable.
