Avid Analist: An Introduction To Anal Play and Anal Anatomy

(Note: This is a many piece, many page series I’m working on. There are page numbers at the bottom of this, below my G+ thing to go to the next part)

Reenie prodded me to write about anal play, to introduce and explain to folks how to warm up for anal play. I thought I’d go one better and actually explore anal play… The whats, whys, and hows; so to speak. I’m not an expert (far from it) but I know what works for me, and (so I’ve heard) I’ve helped a few people both try anal (or retry it) and learn to love it. So, without further adieu:

Why Do People Like Anal Play?

For some, it’s really just about the taboo nature of it (which can just go away now. Butt play rocks!), for others it’s just a different form of pleasure. I asked a few friends, readers and bloggers why they enjoy anal play… Here is what they had to say:

Umm, it turns me on. It heightens my enjoyment of other stimulation, so that’s awesome, but even by itself I love it. Anal orgasms have been some of the most powerful I’ve ever had. My perineal sponge acts like a second G-spot, and I sooo love g-spot action. Plus my butt is a lot less finicky than my vagina… As long as I warm up properly, my butt is ready to go. It’s just, fun! Double penetration is AMAZING. God Bless Butt Secks!

Friend, Reader, Awesomesauce

I love the way it feels. It’s different, it makes me slow down and focus on something sexual. I can pop a dildo in my vagina anytime, but with anal, I have to slow down and prepare. I have to focus on what I’m doing, how my ass is responding to the toy. When I find that I’m comfortable with a toy, I’m able to go deeper than I can with my vagina. It’s a real turn on to be able to sink a long dildo to the hilt. At the same time, I like the street cred that goes with it. I like (am turned on by) the fact I can say “I fucked myself in the ass, today”. Anal sex isn’t my go to sexual activity, it’s more like a rare delicacy.


To Put Anal Play Simply…

It can feel really good, when done correctly! When everything is slick and slipping around nicely, it can actually be just as (and in some cases more) enjoyable than any other form of sex. Let’s get into the anatomy a bit, and we’ll look at why it can feel so good.
