When it comes to anal sex, there are some important things you need to know as it is not the type of activities you want to rush into.
In the absence of proper preparation, anal sex can be painful, risky and finally, it can be unpleasant. However, in the event that you have a better understanding of what your expectation is and you get yourself prepared properly, you can derive a lot of pleasure from anal sex. All things considered, a lot of people engage in anal sex.
Before you start getting the job done, below are some important ways to kick-start the game. Below are five things you need to do before you first have anal sex
- Do the talking
There should be mutual understanding and trust between you and your partner before you find your way into that narrow path. There are some things that are required which include patience, care, and gentleness so as to give birth to a pleasurable or at least not making it a terrible scenario, being the first time experience for the recipient. The fact remains that your first time experience may not be fun. For the first few times, it can be quite unpleasant. That’s why it’s so important to do it with someone who will treat you with care.
- Always lubricate
There is no point discussing comprehensively this: ensure that you make use of a lot of water-based lubricants even more than you think you need. Do not mistake the anus for the vagina this is because the anus does not self-lubricate. That’s why you need to give yourself a lot of moisture. The role performed by the lubricant is that it will not only help you avoid discomfort but it will also increase sexual pleasure and satisfaction.
- Use protection. This is very important!
One the sexual activities which have been found to be the riskiest is anal sex, this is due to the fact that the anus does not self-lubricate like the vagina. This is an indication and a sign of warning that during sex the anus is prone to tear which can result in bleeding.
Whenever you are exchanging body fluids or blood, you will become at risk of becoming infected with HIV and other STIs. Always use protection when you have anal sex, either as a straight or gay couple and even if you use a sex toy instead of a penis. Care must be taken as you must not allow your partner to ejaculate into your anus and also do not allow them to replicate it to you as well.
Anal sex can be pleasurable if you calm down and do it slowly and with a lot of lubricants. Put yourself in the mood by allowing your partner to make use of their fingers first or they can use their tongue but make sure you are protected or a small sex toy.
It should be noted that at the beginning it will feel like something strange in your butt. Even the first few times may seem strange. However, as you relax and get used to the feel, you can suddenly feel a new kind of pleasure that adds a new element to your sex life.
It is important to take note that at this point, your partner should only insert the tip of their tongue, finger, penis or sex toys. In this way, you will get used to the sensation without the feeling of discomfort. Additionally, going ‘all the way in’ too soon will probably make you feel like you need to go to the toilet – not the sexiest sensation!
- Do not cross-contaminate
One of the easiest ways to get urinary tract infection is to spread the germs from the anus into the vagina. Make sure that all toys or body parts which are inserted into the anus properly cleaned prior to insertion into the vagina. Always rinse well with clean water (and mild soap if necessary) before and after anal sex, and never mix anal sex with vaginal or oral sex.
