3 Reasons To Add Anal To Your Sex Menu

If you're considering trying anal sex, you may have some reservations and questions. You may be wondering about safety, what it feels like, the possibility of bowel movements during sex, and whether or not it can lead to an orgasm. Despite varying opinions on the topic, there are actually several benefits to engaging in anal sex.

So, if you're open to trying it, here are some advantages to taking the back door approach next time you're in the mood.

1. No pregnancy worries during anal sex.

One of the major benefits of anal sex is that it eliminates the risk of pregnancy. This can be a huge relief for couples who are not ready to start a family or who are looking for alternative methods of contraception. 

While the risk of pregnancy during anal sex is significantly lower than vaginal intercourse, it is not completely impossible. If there is any semen leakage or inadequate cleaning before or after the act, there is still some risk of pregnancy.

However, it's important to note that protection against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is still necessary during anal sex.

2. Completely Different Sexual Experience.

As comedian Ali Wong once said, "when I finally did anal, I just felt like I got a second chance at life." While this may sound humorous, it highlights the fact that anal sex provides a completely different sexual experience than vaginal intercourse.

In fact, there are several ways to experience an anal orgasm. According to Sheila Loanzon, M.D., an obstetrician and gynecologist, the anterior wall of the rectum shares nerves with the vagina, which means sexual arousal can occur from rectal stimulation. Additionally, the legs of the clitoris extend all the way back to the anus, which explains why the anus can be a sweet spot for some people.

It can be a new and exciting way to explore your body and your partner's body.

Now, let's talk about the other half of the couple: men.

Ali Wong also talked about the fear and resistance that some men may have towards anal play. This fear may stem from societal stigmas and misconceptions around sexuality and masculinity. However, exploring your own body and discovering what feels good is not a reflection of your sexual orientation or masculinity. It's simply a way to experience pleasure and intimacy with your partner.

Anal play, including prostate stimulation, can be a new and exciting way to explore your body and your partner's body. While it may not be for everyone, it can lead to intense orgasms and a sense of intimacy and trust between partners. However, it's important to remember that communication, consent, and safety should always be top priorities.

3. It’s a chance to try some new toys.

It’s not a good idea to go right from zero to penis if you’ve never tried anal before. That's where anal toys come in handy! Using anal toys is a great way to gradually introduce your body to the sensations of anal play and get comfortable with the idea before moving on to penetrative sex. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials to suit different preferences and experience levels. By starting with smaller toys like butt plugs or anal beads, you can gradually work your way up to larger toys or even penetrative sex. Anal toys can also be used during solo play or with a partner for added pleasure and intimacy. 

Different types of anal toys are suitable for different people. Here are some examples:

    Suitable for anal play beginners who want to explore new sensations or for those who enjoy a feeling of fullness in the anus. They can also be used during other sexual activities for added stimulation.
          Suitable for people who enjoy a unique sensation as each bead is removed from the anus. They can also be used during other sexual activities for added stimulation.
                Suitable for people who want to experience intense prostate stimulation and experience intense orgasms. They are also suitable for people who have some experience with anal play and want to try something new.

                    It's important to choose an anal toy that is appropriate for your experience level and preferences. Always use plenty of lubricant and go slowly to avoid discomfort or injury.
