Back door play can be incredibly pleasurable for everyone thanks to all those amazing nerve endings inside and around your anus. For people with a prostate, prostate stimulation through anal play can open up a whole new world of pleasure and P-spot orgasms. When you're starting out though, the whole idea can seem a bit daunting at first. Here are some tips to help get you started.
- Lube, lube and more lube! Unlike the vagina, the anus and rectum have no natural lubrication so it’s important to use a good quality anal lube to reduce friction and increase pleasure. We stock a range of high quality silicone lube which is long lasting and never gets sticky but can stain fabric and is not compatible with all toys. We also stock a wide range of liquid and gel water-based lubes which are specifically designed for anal play and compatible with toys of all materials.
- Take it slow. Get yourself comfortable and aroused. Start out massaging the area around your anus and when you’re ready, insert a finger slowly. Listen to your body; if it's uncomfortable and painful then stop or slow down. The more relaxed you are, the higher your chance of success.
- Cleanliness can be a worry for a lot of people but after a shower and a trip to the toilet, you’ll be very unlikely to make a mess. We do stock a range of anal hygiene products such as douches for your convenience and peace of mind.
- When you’re ready to work up to toys, start out small with a plug or some anal beads. Butt plugs come in a range of sizes, shapes and materials as well as vibrating or non-vibrating, all of which are designed to stimulate and create a pleasant feeling of fullness. In the case of anal beads, the main pleasure is in the insertion and removal. As each bead pops in or out, the stimulation of the anal sphincter muscles can be intensely pleasurable. Inserting them during foreplay then slowly removing them just before or during your climax can supercharge an orgasm like nothing else.
- Whatever toy you use, we strongly recommend that you only use toys that are easy to retrieve to save yourself a trip to the emergency room. For plugs, vibrators or beads this means choosing toys with a wide, flared base or a reasonable sized pull ring handle. We also advise against using vaginal and anal toys interchangeably due to the risk of infection.
