Regardless of past stigma around anal sex toys, their popularity is on the increase – with people being less anal about it all. If you’ve always been intrigued about the feeling of being filled from behind, Naughty Possessions have put together this beginner’s guide to anal toys to pump-start your experience.
Want to add a little ping to your ring? If you thought only gay men enjoyed anal play, then you’re really behind with the times! It’s true that men have the benefit of having a prostate situated up there, which feels incredible when stimulated, but why would so many women enjoy it if that was all there was to it? There are many sensitive nerve endings situated in your backside, all of which are asking to be tantalized and teased.
Anal play can also invigorate the back wall of a woman’s vagina. Sensations felt when using an anal sex toy simultaneously with penile or vaginal stimulation are phenomenal.
So prepare to discover an all new type of orgasm, one that is more intense than you have ever experienced.
You should know by now just how vital it is to keep all of your toys clean. Opt for a non-porous toy wherever possible, particularly if you are going to share. If your toy is porous, you may wish to use a condom; this will make clean-up easier too. In between uses sanitize thoroughly.

Now be a good girl/boy scout and be prepared!
To ensure that things don’t get messy, there’s a small amount of preparation that should be done before you begin your anal play. Those on the receiving end should start off by having a rinse around their poop chute with mild soap and water. If somewhat more anal about cleanliness, you can opt for an enema/douche 3-4 hours beforehand.
Next, use an old towel or two and lay them underneath where you will be playing. This will prevent lubricant getting on anything that it shouldn’t. It’s also a good idea to have some damp wipes/cloths nearby.

You’ll want your anal play to be successful, so the receiver needs to be totally relaxed – whether solo or with a playmate. Unlike vaginal muscles, the sphincter muscles take much more loosening up. Diving straight in without preparation will merely make the muscles tighten, possibly rendering anal play entirely impossible.
As with any sporting activities, a warm up is important. Begin with a sensual massage of the derriere. Massage those cheeks in a slow and sexy motion, giving them the care and attention they crave.
Then it’s time for your finger. Lube up your finger, slip and slide it partially into the ready and waiting hole. Massage slowly until you start to feel the muscles relax. Keep inserting the finger and massaging; this is also a good indication of how far you can insert an anal toy to start. It is imperative that nails are trimmed for this warm up; otherwise it could result in small tears and abrasions/fissures.
If playing with a partner, make sure you have discussed everything beforehand, and stop if your playmate feels uncomfortable at any time.
