So you and your partner are ready to explore another path to pleasure through anal sex. Congratulations, that is actually something to be proud of. Because anal sex has so many misconceptions, people often steer away from it or even fear what will happen if they try it once. Obviously, Kinkcrate loves supplying you with goods for healthy and safe anal sex fun, so how about opening the backdoor on how fun and satisfying anal sex can be.
Myth: Anal Sex is Unsanitary
Truth: This is the biggest misconception people have about anal sex. The lower section of the rectum and the anus do not store fecal matter, so it is not as dirty as some may believe. Still, you never want to transfer from anal to vaginal sex without either changing the condom or washing off with some soap first, because microscopic bits can still cause vaginal infection. For those who are concerned about how clean they are before trying anal sex, use the bathroom and an enema to be safe.
Myth: Anal Sex Hurts
Truth: Yes and no. Of course, anal sex is going to hurt a little, especially if it is your first time. The muscles around the anus are usually very tight, and learning how to relax them for your partner to enter takes time. However, you surely have a healthy supply of lube thanks to your Kinkcrate monthly subscription, so employ it. Also, utilize some anal beads and dildos to ready the anus for entry. Work yourself up to full on penetration with foreplay and toys designed for anal.
Do not be afraid to openly communicate with your partner about how good or bad anal sex feels. If it hurts, tell them to stop. However, a lot of women feel intense pleasure once they have gotten used to anal penetration. Because of a multitude of nerve endings in the region, some even report achieving orgasms.
Myth: Condoms Are Not Necessary With Anal
Truth: Absolutely not. Condoms are essential for anal sex, even if you cannot get pregnant from it. Not only do latex condoms aid with the ease of penetration, they protect the anal sphincter from micro-tears. Just like the vagina needs lubricant to make penetration comfortable, so too does the anus. Secondly, as mentioned before you do not have to worry about a lot fecal matter, the anus does have bacteria and is very susceptible to STDs and STIs. The skin is actually thinner in the anus, meaning that chlamydia, gonorrhea, warts, and HIV can all be transmitted very easily if a condom is not used.
Myth: The Bowels Get Stretched Out
Truth: This is similar to the myth about the vagina losing elasticity after pregnancy. Safe and properly performed anal sex will not stretch out the bowel so much you lose control of your business. If concerned, you can do Kegel exercises to help tighten up the pelvic floor muscles and other glute exercises.
Again, anal sex is all about being open to the slow exploration. Use lube and toys from your Kinkcrate as well as latex condoms and plenty of communication. You do not have to worry about being considered a slut for trying it or having your partner on being solely focused on backdoor entry. Consider anal sex a treat rather than a commonplace act done in the bedroom, and you will be able to spice things up during intercourse once in awhile.
