Just like penetrative sex, you can masturbate the same way over and over again. But you’ll get tired of it! Whereas if you’re interested in anal masturbation, it’s a whole new world of possibilities waiting to be explored.
The Basics of Anal Masturbation
If you want to start right away without necessarily investing in special anal plug equipment, then anal masturbation can be performed with your own body.
Anal fingering is probably the most basic form of anal masturbation. Not only is it very simple and fast, but it is also a great way to warm up for some of the most advanced styles of anal masturbation. You can use as many fingers as you like as long as you’re comfortable.
The flexibility of one finger is also ideal for exploring your entire anal area and discovering which part gives you the most pleasure. The back and forth movements can give you an idea of what anal sex looks like, or you can try stroking, circling, squeezing, literally anything you can think of to please yourself.
Unless you’re a contortionist, as far as oral anal sex goes, you’ll need a partner. It’s exactly the same principle as with a vagina or a penis, you just need to stimulate the area with your tongue and see what you like. We know that the idea of licking someone’s ass may not be the sexiest thing you’ve ever heard, but if it’s clean, it can actually be very intimate and enjoyable.
Anal toys are as wild and varied as the people who use them. Even with anal, which is still a taboo area, there is a wide range of different toys to let you feel exactly what you want.
The best ones for masturbation are :
- Anal Plugs : The standard and best known anal toys, anal plugs are perfect for both beginners and experts thanks to their different sizes. They are not really ideal for doing back and forth, however you can accompany the wearing of anal plugs with penile or vaginal masturbation to really enjoy yourself.
- Anal rosaries : Similar to anal plugs in their designs, but with a completely different use. The best use of anal beads is in insertion and removal. Inside the anus are muscles called sphincters. These open to let the pearls in, then close again between each pearl.
- Vibrating plugs : Again very similar to a plug in design or use, except that a vibrating plug will give you the joy of stimulation without having to do the work yourself! Perfect if you want an easy and enjoyable masturbation session.
- Prostate Massager : They are almost identical to vibrating plugs, except for a slight curve that allows you to touch and stimulate the male prostate gland with perfection. Prostate orgasms can be different from anything else a man might feel, so the prostate stimulator is a must-have for solitary masturbation sessions.
No article on anal pleasure will ever be complete without a mention of lubrication. No matter how you’re going to indulge yourself (even if you don’t penetrate), the lubricant will make it better. The best lubricants for anal sex tend to be oil-based because they work for long periods of time before they dry. They are also safe with all kinds of sex toys, and will always work unless you use a condom.
You must use plenty of lubricant before penetrating in any way. If you think you’ve put in enough, it means there’s not enough. Even if you’re just stimulating your anus with your finger, a little bit of lubricant can help the skin not get too irritated.
The risks of anal masturbation
While practicing solo can be a good thing to do when your partner is not around, it is not without its dangers. Failure to lubricate effectively can make it very painful to put anything inside, and in the worst case can even lead to anal bleeding or tearing. This tear or lesion then makes the rectum much more susceptible to infection and disease, so if this happens to you you should give your butt a break.
Bacteria found in the anus, while not harmful to the anus, are not good for the rest of the body. You will need to make sure you clean your toys well after anal use, and if possible have toys dedicated solely to anal use. Never insert anything into the vagina immediately after anal sex.
STIs and STDs are also much easier to transmit through the anal route than the vaginal route. Although solo masturbation does not cause you to get an infection, those that are still alive on the toy (yes, it can happen) can still pass into your body. Make sure that everything is completely clean, and if you really want to do this safely, it is best to use a condom on your toys.
Anal masturbation can be a good place to start if you are interested in anal sex. Solitary masturbation gives you time to find the places that stimulate you the most and test your own anal limits without having to worry about your partner going too far and things getting out of hand. Even if you’re comfortable with anal sex, there are always more toys and positions to try, so don’t be afraid to try! Go for it!
