But while anal play has become more mainstream in society, so many people do not approach anal play the right way. We'll also discuss two tips on how you and your partner can ensure that your anal play is always intimate and pleasurable. As mentioned numerous times on our other anal guides, the pleasure of anal toys does not come from the anal cavity itself. In general, sphincter muscles are circular muscles that constrict and control a natural body passage or orifice.
Sphincter Muscles - the key to anal play
Big tip for receiving objects in the anus: Relax!
Lots of straight men are turned off by the idea of anal play to be fair, many bi and gay men are too , and as a result are missing out on a whole world of fun. This is the third in a multi-part series from After Hours about anal play. You can see the other posts in the series as they come out here. Seriously though, your anus and rectum are full of nerve endings, just like your penis. Your rectum is also home to your prostate gland , another pleasure center. Anal play feels great on its own, and can lead to unbelievably intense orgasms. Lots of bi and gay men enjoy oral sex. Of course not.
Does Everyone Enjoy Anal Stimulation?
People of all sexual orientations and gender identities can explore giving and receiving anal play. The anal region is rich with nerve endings, so stimulation in this area can feel good. People with prostates often enjoy indirect stimulation of the prostate through anal penetration. The area around the anal opening is covered in hair for most people. Some people choose to remove this hair, while other people do not. It is normal to have hair around this part of the body. The anus has two rings of muscles near the entrance.
If it feels good, anything goes! Cisgender men and people assigned male at birth have a prostate , so in these cases a butt orgasm results from stimulating the prostate. You can stimulate the P-spot through the perineum, which is the runway of skin between the balls and the anus. This is how anal orgasms work for cisgender women and people assigned female at birth. Anal penetration indirectly stimulates the A-spot in the vagina. The A-spot, or anterior fornix if you want to get fancy, is located deep inside the vagina — around 5 or 6 inches in. It feels like intense waves of pleasure that begin deep inside your body and radiate through the rest of your body. In other words: Ah-mazing. Minor discomfort the first couple of times is normal as you adjust to being penetrated back there. Sex on the fly is fun, but when it comes to anal play, a little prep can help make the experience better for the receiver and the giver.
