Warming Up Your Butt

1

by thepleasurechest

The butt doesn’t lie. When you’re relaxed and ready to go, anal penetration can be easy and fun. If you’re tense, anxious, or just not that into it, trying for even a finger can feel like an exercise in futility.  Since pleasure is the goal of any anal encounter, and since trying to force anything into an unwilling ass can result in injury, when it comes to putting anything in your butt, foreplay is everything.

In the interest of keeping your butt happy, here are a few tips for warming up.

Get turned on first. Anal sex shouldn’t feel like a trip to the doctor’s office, unless that’s what you’re into. Don’t focus on your ass, to the exclusion of the rest of your body. Rather than getting goal-oriented, turn your attention to something that gets you in the mood – make out with your partner, watch some porn, play with your favorite vibe, whatever. Your ass will still be there when you’re ready.

Get massaged. Many people carry a lot of tension in the lower back, the glutes, and even the anus itself. Releasing any of that tension can help you get butt-sex-ready. If you have a partner at hand, ask them to crack out the massage oil and give you a back rub, with special attention paid to the lower back, the muscles in your butt, and your upper thighs.

Get gloved up and lubed up. One of the best warm-ups ever is massaging the anus itself. We love latex or nitrile gloves for getting up close and personal with the butthole. They have a smooth, even texture and – unlike your skin – don’t absorb lube (and you should always, always be using lube when you play with your butt). You could also give rimming a try.

Get buzzed… by a vibrator.* Your asshole has one of the highest concentrations of nerves in your body, so it really responds to vibration. We recommend using a massager, like the Mystic Wand, since massagers have wide enough heads that they’re in no danger of getting lost in your butt. Speaking of which…

Get off to a good start. Most people’s butts can’t go from zero to Jeff Stryker. Fingers and small toys are great to start out with – and can be awesome ends in themselves. Plugs can be left in during other sexual activity, and some of them are even designed to be worn during the day-to-day. Smooth, slim dildos are also awesome. Just make sure that any toy you use has a flared base!

The butt wants what it wants, and the best thing you can do is listen to it. Keep it low-pressure, do only what feels good, and soon you’ll be having all kinds of anal adventures.

 

*While a drink can help relax you, alcohol also increases your pain tolerance. You want to be able to feel pain when you’re playing with the butt, so that you know if you need to slow down, use more lube, try a different position, or take a break.
