Q&A: Anal Sex Tips for Beginners?

Here are some helpful tips for couples who are going to try anal sex for the first time.

The idea of having anal sex with your partner can be an arousing thought.  Your partner on the other hand, may have her reservations.  If she has never experimented with anal stimulation with a finger or a sex toy, the idea of your penis going into uncharted territory can be a scary thought.  If you and your partner have decided to take it to the next level and try anal sex, here are some tips that can make your experience more enjoyable.

Communication is definitely necessary when having anal sex.   It is very important that you and your partner discuss the topic of having anal sex and both want to try it.  If either partner has any doubts or concerns, it is important to address them.  Otherwise, this can negatively affect your experience.  It is important that you trust one another and if someone wants to stop, his or her wishes will be respected.
It is essential that you and your partner thoroughly clean the genital region before and after anal sex to minimize the risk of infection.  After anal sex, do not go right to vaginal sex as this can cause an infection.  Use a condom during sexual activity.  After anal sex, if you want to have vaginal sex then discard that condom and use a new one.
Before you have anal sex, take a deep breath, and try to relax.  The idea of having anal sex may make you extremely nervous.  You or your partner may be worried that it is not going to be comfortable and will hurt.  However, if done properly having anal sex can feel very good for both partners because the nerves around the anal region are very sensitive.
It is very important to have enough lubrication to make it more comfortable and insertion easier.  Unlike the vagina, the anus does not produce natural lubrication.  If there is not enough lubrication, this can cause friction and be painful.  There are personal lubricants specifically designed for anal intercourse that provide long lasting lubrication.Once the lubricant is applied, ease into the anal sex.  Take it slow.  Make sure you stop if your partner is feeling discomfort.  Do not force insertion.  Consider using your finger or an anal toy so your partner becomes more at ease with the sensations.  Anal sex can be an intense and amazing experience, but it is not for everyone.  If either partner is in pain, or not enjoying the experience, then respect your partner.
