One of the scariest aspects of anal that a newcomer might consider is the pain factor. A newcomer that is not experienced with anal might (and with very good reason) expect it to hurt a lot, expect it to be very unpleasant and to just not be into it at all, eventually being pushed away from the idea and giving up on it altogether, however, that shouldn’t be the case.
Anal sex does require some work, that much is clear, however, it does not have to be painful at all (or at least unbearably painful). There is always a little bit of pain when it comes to sex (after all, holes are being stretched) but, a little bit of pain is pleasurable, as long as it doesn’t go over the limit.
When it comes to anal, more people tend to think that it’s going to hurt a lot more than it really does but, also, a lot of people don’t take the necessary steps in order to make anal the most pleasant it can be and, once everything is done properly, it can be very orgasm-inducing for both the giver and the receiver.
In order to make anal sex a painless experience, you have to think beyond the lube. It is not all about lubing up the hole enough that the penis or dildo will slide right in, no, there are some other things you can (and should) do in order to get your beautiful booty ready for penetration.
So, with that said, let’s talk about how you can make anal sex less painful, whether you’re trying it for the first time or, whether you’ve done it many times in the past but still haven’t found that sweet spot you’ve been searching for!
Prep Before Anal
This might not seem like it is directly related to preventing pain from anal sex however, the mental part of things is as important as the physical.
If you’ve prepped before anal (with prepping we mean douching, getting everything clean, etc), then you will feel a lot more comfortable and a lot more relaxed. By relaxing a lot more, it will be easier for the penis or dildo to go in and out, without you having to worry about any mishaps!
DO NOT Skip Foreplay
This is the most important part about preventing pain when having anal sex that, unfortunately, a lot of people forget about. The anus requires some work before being stretched as wide as the toy or penis is so, it requires some foreplay and (we cannot emphasize this enough) it should never be skipped!
We all want to jump straight into action however, having your anus fingered or even rimmed can relax the muscles and, of course, stretch it out in ways that feel comfortable and pleasant.
Use The Appropriate Lube
Using the right lube is also of immense importance. If you know that there are some lubes that you’ve found to irritate your insides then switch it up to others that feel better, preferably silicone-based (because it lasts longer) or even numbing lubes, so the sensations are a bit numbed.
Anal sex is an absolute treat but, only when it’s done right so, follow these steps and you’re sure to have a great time while getting that amazingly peachy booty loved!
