Many women report that anal stretching is one of their favorite things to do in the bedroom. It can be erotic, titillating and, if done properly, can give you intense orgasms.
However, there are some important things to keep in mind when you begin your anal-stretching journey. Sharp sensations, pain or pinching are all signs that you have gone too far.
When it comes to anal play, going too big too fast is one of the biggest reasons people suffer from injuries. For this reason, it is always a good idea to start small and work your way up. This can be done with a variety of tools, including fingering, kinky restraints, foreplay and even masturbation. Some people like to use a fantasy dildo to add a bit of erotic appeal to their anal stretching experience.
A good tip is to use a lube that is designed for anal play. It helps keep the anal sphincter open and makes it easier to insert toys. Also, before you begin anal stretching, be sure to have a bowel movement. A clean anus is much easier to deal with than one that has fecal matter in it.
When you’re ready to get started, apply a liberal amount of lube to your fingers and toy and to the anal opening itself. It’s important to note that the anus isn’t self-lubricating, so it needs quite a bit of help to stay supple and comfortable. Once you have everything ready, sit down and relax. If you’re feeling uncomfortable, stop and try something different. Pain, itching and slight bleeding are okay as long as they don’t become too extreme or persistent. If you do experience pain, numbness or severe redness, it’s time to seek medical attention right away.
Practice Makes Perfect
Many people really enjoy anal stretching and the sensations that come with it. It is, however, important to remember that the interior of your anus is lined up with a whole bunch of super sensitive nerves and it may take a long time to get those muscles relaxed enough for you to feel anal penetration comfortably.
The more you do it, the more your muscles will stretch and adapt. The key is to always start small and work your way up. Always apply plenty of lube and go very slow. You should also be ready to stop at the first sign of anything feeling off, such as sharp sensations, tightness or pain.
Getting used to the length of some of the anal toys that are available can take some time as well. If you start to play with a finger plug, for instance, it is normal to only be able to insert up to the first knuckle at first. As you practice, though, you will be able to push a little further in with each session.
During anal stretching, it is a good idea to make sure that you are using the right kind of lube for this type of activity. Silicone lube is ideal for anal stretching because it lasts longer and feels great on the skin. You should also make sure that your anal is completely clean before you start using any stretching tools. You may want to use a anal douche or enema a few hours before you begin anal stretching in order to give yourself the best chance at a comfortable experience.
There are lots of people out there who like to use fantasy dildos — such as dragon and werewolf dildos — for anal play. However, those dildos are significantly larger than a human anus, and stretching for such toys can be dangerous.
This is why it’s important for anyone who’s interested in anal stretching to start small and work their way up to the bigger toys. The reason is that the anus isn’t used to having such a big toy inserted into it, and as such, will likely take some time to adjust.
Even though anal stretching can be very satisfying, it should never be painful. If you experience a lot of pain, then it may be too much for your hole to handle and is a sign that you should stop the anal stretching session.
In addition to taking it slowly, there are other things you can do to make anal stretching a safer and more enjoyable experience. For example, lubricate the toy and your finger before you insert it into the anus. The anal will be more receptive and sensitive to stimulation when it’s well lubricated.
Also, don’t stretch more than once or twice a week when you first start. Too many anal stretching sessions can lead to serious issues, such as infection and even a hole that collapses.
Take Care of Your Butt
As with any new exercise, anal stretching can be a little painful at first. If it hurts, it’s probably a good idea to back off for a while until the muscles relax again. Then, you can try again with a bit more pressure.
It’s also important to be careful about the amount of pressure you apply and to use plenty of lubrication. Your anus is not self-lubricating like the vagina, so it needs a lot of extra help. If you’re not using enough lube, your anal can get irritated or even tear. Tears in your anus aren’t a good thing, and they can make it easier to catch STIs or STDs.
You should also keep in mind that the anal muscles are a little thinner and more delicate than those of your vagina. They can also be more susceptible to damage if you’re not warming up properly or using the right size toys. That’s why it’s always a good idea to start small and work your way up slowly.
While it may seem daunting at first, anal stretching can be a great pleasure experience once you’ve worked up the nerve to try it. Just remember to take it slow and be patient, and you’ll soon find that your anus is a whole lot more sensitive than you ever imagined.
