Bend Over Buddy:
Girl on Guy Penetration

1

by thepleasurechest

When you’re ready to talk to your guy about pleasing him anally, the idea could be a tough pitch or he may be face-down-ass-up on your bed before you can finish the sentence, saying he thought you’d never ask. More heterosexual partners than ever are embracing the fact that the anus is an equal-opportunity orifice, and that almost anyone can enjoy anal sex. But, before you start writing the lyrics to a folk song about ass loving, remember that many of us were raised with certain beliefs about butt sex. These myths and half-truths are difficult to dispel, and there are many more of them, but we’ll try and tackle the most common ones.

  1. The ass is dirty. While we wouldn’t recommend a burrito grande washed down with a latte just before doing the deed, in truth anal hygiene is as easy as a little soap and water in the crack. If he’s still worried about cleanliness, tell him to get a little fancy and stick a soapy finger in his anus in the shower. To get even fancier, he can do a simple warm water douche with something like the Clean Stream Enema Bulb. Apart from that, the best tools in your safe sex arsenal will be lube, condoms, gloves, and dental dams for rimming.

  2. Anal sex has to hurt. Like all sexual experiences, when it comes to anal sex, the hurting is optional. There are numbing agents available specifically for anal use, but we tend to steer clear of those, as pain is the body’s way of warning you there may be a potential tearing situation. A relaxed asshole in a situation with someone it trusts and liberal use of a good anal sex lube, such as Pjur Bodyglide or Maximus, can bring its owner into a whole new realm of pleasure. Hello, the prostate = the male g-spot! Communication and lubrication are key when it comes to a pain-free, pleasure-full experience.
  3. It will make you lose total control of your bowels. Oh, this one again. Look, there’s no need to fear. Lube, communication, and relaxation will keep his butt happy for years to come. In fact, stimulation of this area brings white blood cells that can help ward off cancer, and prostate stimulation encourages a healthier sex life. Now, if only there were a way to convince him that wearing old, torn boxers can actually cause certain types of cancer…
  4. Taking it in the ass makes a man gay. We’re not overly fond of sexual pigeon-holing, but let’s keep it simple for some of the fellows out there: A guy having sex with another guy = gay sex. A guy being pounded by his sexy, confident girlfriend = not gay sex.

Tantus Bend Over Beginner Kit

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk about equipment. If you bring home a ten-inch dildo, chances are he’ll feel somewhat intimidated. Luckily, there are all sorts of inexpensive harnesses and smaller dildos for couples just starting out to try, as well as more advanced equipment. We recommend silicone dildos in every strap-on scenario, but when it comes to anal sex this is especially important, as silicone is non-porous and will prevent bacteria from spreading. We love the Tantus Bend Over Beginner Kit because it includes a simple, adjustable nylon harness with interchangeable O-rings and the smooth, slender Small Silk Dildo and Medium Silk Dildos. These dildos are also sold separately and are extremely popular for anal beginners, but there is also a large size for more experienced types. We love harnesses with snap-out or adjustable o-rings because they can accommodate different sizes of dildos to suit your taste or comfort level. See our Strap-on tutorial, Harness Guide, and Our Favorite Anal Lubes for more info and specific recommendations.

Now, a little cheat sheet:

Do get comfortable with your cock ahead of time. Try wearing your harness and dildo around the house to get used to the feel of it.

Don’t pound his ass unless he has some experience and asks you to. Let him control the movement by backing into your dildo at first.

Do go slowly and communicate every step of the way.

Don’t forget his other parts; reach around and stroke his cock, play with his balls, pinch his nipples…

Do utilize toys such as buttplugs to prepare his ass for penetration.

Don’t assume doggy style is the only way to have anal sex. Missionary style anal sex with a curved dildo will hit his prostate just right and another position that works great for anal is “spooning.” Check out Tristan Taormino’s The Anal Sex Position Guide for even more ideas.

Do reapply lube as needed. There’s no such thing as too much!

Beyond the Tube Sock:
Masturbation Sleeves for Men

0

by thepleasurechest

From pocket pussies to full replicas of Belladonna’s ass to state of the art sleeves that replicate oral sex, masturbation tools for men are growing in variety and popularity, leaving the old tube sock and hand lotion behind.

What the eff is a “masturbation sleeve”?

Masturbation sleeves as discussed in this article include any toys with a hole and “tunnel” in which to insert your penis. They come in a variety of shapes and styles. Some are realistic-looking, others are more discreet, but most are designed to feel somewhat like vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Paired with lube, they create exciting slippery sensations for your penis.

tenga 3dWhy would I want a jack-off accessory?
Because women shouldn’t get to have all the fun sex gadgets! A good old-fashioned handjob is nothing to shake a stick at (so to speak), but sleeves can provide a wider variety of sensations and serve a specific purpose. Tenga 3D sleeves are made of ultra-soft elastomer, with a variety of exciting textures inside. Fleshlight Stamina masturbators have the much-loved realistic feel and superior suction that Fleshlight is known for, but the inside is extra tight and studded to aid in stamina training for men who want to last longer during the real thing.
When do I use masturbation sleeves?
Masturbation sleeves are awesome solo (duh), but they can also be great to use with a partner for handjobs. The open-ended ones, such as Vibratex Sidekick 2 can also make a great blow-job even better, as your partner can use it to stroke your shaft while they give extra oral attention to the head of your penis.

A lot of masturbation sleeves are not only portable, but also very discreet. Tenga Eggs are disposable after a few uses, so they’re great for travel. Just don’t do it on the airplane, or in the parking lot of an Arby’s. We could talk about sex all day, but legal advice isn’t really our thing.

 

  • How do I use them?

Lube is a must with masturbation sleeves. As with any type of sex toy, what kind of lube you use will depend on your preference and the material the toy is made of. Cyberskin, Softskin, and the like should be used with water-based lube only and treated very delicately. Wash with soap* and warm water and dry completely. Powdering these with cornstarch with help maintain the silky, skin-like feel. Elastomer sleeves like the Vibratex Maven can be used with any type of lube and should also be washed and dried before and after each use.

As for the actual “getting down” part, individual products’ instructions will vary, but in general you’re going to lube up, stick your penis in, and do what comes naturally.

*Do NOT wash Fleshlights with soap. Warm water only.

Cock Extensions

Cock Extensions, Really?

OK, time for some straight talk. You were born with the dick that God gave you. (And there’s no sense complaining to her, because she’s got bigger problems to worry about.) We’re not in the business of dick shaming or size queening, around here. All penises are beautiful, and they can all give pleasure to their owners and to others. In fact, most of the nerve endings in the vagina are in the very first third. You don’t need to be Long Dong Silver to hit the magic G-Spot.

OK, enough with the disclaimer, because the truth is that we love cock extenders. What are they, you ask? A cock extender is a hollow sleeve or sheath, usually made of rubber, that fits on the end of your penis, giving you up to a few inches of extra length and girth. They can be worn with or without a condom, and they don’t need any harnesses or straps to stay in place. So, why would anyone want to try a cock extension? Here are just a few reasons you might want to extend your reach under the sheets.

Plunge the Depths

A cock extension can allow you to go where no man has gone before. If your partner is female, those few extra inches could reach her cervix. (And yes, there are women who love to feel pressure on their cervix). The extra girth also means a fuller feeling for vaginal and anal sex, whether your partner is male or female.

Last longer

OK, this might be obvious, but a penis extender will reduce sensations for the wearer. So, if you’re the kind of guy who needs a little help to keep from coming, this will likely do the trick. Or, if you’ve already come, you can grab an extension and keep fucking to your heart’s content.

It’s Kinky

Maybe you like how the bulge looks when you’re wearing a penis extender under your pants. Or you like the way your improbably large cock looks and feels as it plunges into your partner. Or maybe you’re a submissive who kinda gets off believing that you’ll never be able to satisfy without a few extra inches of silicone. If you enjoy orgasm denial, this can be a great way to pleasure your master or mistress without coming. Whatever your kink, a penis extender can be a great tool to bring your fantasies to life. You may never be John Holmes or Jeff Stryker, but with a cock extension, you and your partner can enjoy the fantasy.

Choosing a Cock Extension

 

If erectile dysfunction is your issue, the body-safe silicone Vixskin Ride On fits comfortably over a flaccid penis. Even better, it’s designed to anchor around your balls to stay in place during vigorous play. If you’re worried about losing the sensation on your sweet spot, the Fat Boy Stretchy Extender is lined with deliciously stimulating texture, giving the wearer extra pleasure and an extra inch of girth. (Try the smaller Sport model for a snugger fit.) If you’re after the monster cock fantasy, the Oxballs Dude Cock Sheath will provide all the extra size and bulging veins you could want.
