With proper preparation anal sex can be a smooth process bringing an intensely pleasurable sensation.
In reality anal play is one of the most sensual and exciting sexual experiences, probably because it is more complex than penis-vagina intercourse.
Anal Douche and Anal Lubes
Clean, pain-free anal sex
If we were to learn about anal sex through porn we would all think that it was a magical act that is clean and pain-free without any type of foreplay. Unfortunately, life is not like the movies.
In reality anal play is one of the most sensual and exciting sexual experiences, probably because it is more complex than penis-vagina intercourse. It comes along with some interesting realities. With proper preparation anal sex can be a smooth process bringing an intensely pleasurable sensation.
Anal Douching: Anal douching is not necessary for anal sex, but it does make many people more comfortable. And with comfort comes relaxation, which is one of the most essential parts of pain-free anal sex.
There are a couple of types of anal douches. The first type is a small, convenient and inexpensive choice. Try buying a reusable anal douche. Fill it with warm water and rinse out a couple of times before anal play. Many people find that they not only feel much cleaner after douching, but that anal sex feels better as well.
Pain-free Anal Sex
Relaxation is the best way to avoid pain during anal sex. When we clench in anticipation of pain we forget to think about sexy thoughts and we move further and further away from arousal. Taking it slow and using a good lubricant for anal sex can turn a painful, anxiety ridden experience into pure pleasure.
We recommend thicker water-based, lubes such as:
Maximus: Maximus has been a favorite for years. It is a water-based lube that has a thick consistency ideal for anal play.
Doc Johnson's Anal Lube: This thick lubricant stays put but is not condom safe.
Another avenue that we hesitate to recommend but is quite popular are the desensitizing anal creams like Anal-Ese.
