Anal is a fun, erotic sexual pastime for many. However, many people hear those words and cringe. There are many misconceptions about anal, so let us explain why it can be the best kind of playtime.
Anal sex can be a pleasurable experience for many, but why does it feel good? And how can you enjoy great anal?
This is the end of the digestive system - the rectum and the anus.
Every person has the same system, regardless of gender.
The anal canal (the first few inches of the rectum) is highly sensitive because it is packed full of nerve endings. It is also home to the internal and external sphincters, which are the rings of muscles that contract and relax to control matter moving through the body. The external sphincter is especially unique because it can be voluntarily controlled – meaning an individual can relax or contract the muscle at will! This is the reason why anal exploration is more enjoyable when the individual is relaxed.
Relaxing so you can enjoy anal can be done a number of ways. A very popular method is to orgasm. Try a little foreplay with a great vibrator or even oral sex. And while your partner is down there, try anal stimulation. This can be a gentle massage with the fingers while your partner performs oral, or, even a little rimming.
Another way to enjoy anal stimulation before penetrative sex is to try a plug or beads. These are great to train yourself on how to relax before the big event.

Once you are ready to enjoy your anal adventures, its time for you and your partner to get in the right positions. The best and easiest positions for anal are spooning and doggy style.
Have the receiver lie on their side with their back to their partner, while the giver lays on their side and penetrates from behind. The benefits are that its a nice, intimate position that allows you to easily communicate with your partner and gives both of you control over the speed and depth of penetration.
Have the receiver bend over the bed or on hands and knees while the giver penetrates from behind. The benefits are that this allows the giver easy access and the ability to see what they're doing. Be careful to communicate with receiving partner about what feels good, though!
