Anal play is a topic that's riddled with misinformation and shame. In this video we're sharing our own stories, shifting the conversation from obligation to pleasure, and providing some tips for making the experience fun (and safe) for everyone involved.
Unfortunately, anal sex is often depicted as something that's painful and/or done for him. So it's no wonder many women are reluctant to try it! The reality is that the anus is an erogenous zone so when done right (with lots of warm-up, lube, and good communication) anal play can be incredibly pleasurable.
Just a quick reminder to please, as always, keep STI prevention and hygiene in mind. To reduce the chance of infection, we recommend you wear a condom and remember not to "double-dip" (meaning you don't want to go from anal to vaginal without changing condoms).
