Switching from anal to vaginal sex without replacing the condom or thoroughly washing the penis or dildo can lead to a vaginal or urinary tract infection. Your rectum is not a vaginal canal, nor is it a mouth and throat, so don't expect your anus to work like other orifices.

Not only is the rectum a canal that does not self-lubricate as the vaginal canal and mouth do, the entry is also "gated" by two — yes, two — sphincters.

This means that you shouldn't dream of having anal sex without a thick water- or silicone-based lube. It also means you've got to take it easy, at least at first. Some folks combat this by using numbing or relaxing creams, but I urge you to avoid these at all costs. Some people with hemorrhoids find anal too painful, but others find it can actually relieve pain stimulating the butt draws blood to the area, which keeps circulation flowing. Some people fear that anal sex is going to result in an explosion of poop.

These fears are generally overblown, but it's not unusual to encounter bits of poo from time to time. Feces are stored in the colon, which is where the rectum highway leads.

Poop only passes through the rectum as it exits the body; otherwise, it just chills up in the colon. By now you know that lube is non-negotiable for butt play. A good sex toy, meanwhile, is an ideal tool for getting accustomed to the sensations of being anally penetrated.

Note: Keep in mind that you shouldn't use silicone lube with silicone toys since it can degrade the material. While we can clench and unclench our outer sphincter consciously try it right now , the inner sphincter cannot relax unless you are super duper chilled-out inside.

You or your partner should begin by slowly massaging the outer ring of the sphincter and surrounding areas until you feel the anus relax. Your breath and mind are crucial parts of successful booty play. Take deep belly breaths and let the residual tension go with every exhale. If you find yourself repeatedly tensing up, take a break and pick things back up if and when you feel ready to try again. If the fit feels too tight, ease out. One good approach: Start with your go-to solo-sex moves.

Then, lube up a fingertip and experiment with touch. Then, practice breathing slowly; you should feel it release slightly. This is probably one of the first things you wondered about how to prepare for anal sex. So the fear of poop droplets and fecal residue are a bit unfounded. And a good shower also never hurts.

Lube, lube, lube. This is non-negotiable. You might be tempted to add a numbing lube or cream to the mix. Just as you warmed your bod up during your solo anal exploration, you want to be warmed up to prepare for anal sex too.
