Your Box Box

Anal sex: butt you're uncertain.

We’re a pretty liberal bunch here at the YBB offices.

Not only does conversation tend toward dildo dilemmas or newest nipple clamps— we’re an open minded ‘try most things once’ kind of group.

Most things.

There’s one facet our self-love experimentation around which we are firmly divided. 

The back door.
The booty.
The proverbial fifth base. 

And, because we like to believe our lively debates over specific sexual explorations indicate you’re having similar conversations, we’ve decided to break it all down.

Anal adventures 101: BUTT you’re uncertain.

First, before you get down & dirty (we’ll talk about that part later), make every sophomoric booty exploration joke you can think of. 

Whether to yourself or girlfriends the best first step to opening ourselves up to anal play is releasing our inner 10-year-old boy and inviting any lingering sexual shame we may have out to play. 

Made the unfortunate butt of too many jokes in sitcoms and other places the anus is an erogenous zone which has yet to receive its due. 

Once we stop giggling and cease focusing on the fact we associate the booty more with expulsion then insertion – – we’re ready to spend time exploring the orifice. 

Pick a trusted partner. 

A myth surrounding anal play is it’s rarely enjoyable the first time. 

Many falsely believe the first foray or two into booty exploration can be downright painful. 

This could not be further from the truth. 

It *is* true, however, this sensitive area is best explored when in a fully relaxed state.

Around someone with whom you’re able to let down your guard and be completely vulnerable. 

It's uber important you select a partner you trust and love. 

(Can you see where we’re going with this?)

Yourself

There may be poop. 

There. We said it.

You were thinking it.

It’s out there.

Potentially literally. (yep. that's why we're here. proffering the facts and sharing how we handled em. you may thank us later.)

How much poop emerges can be controlled (use the bathroom before anal play and/or wipe anus with a warm soapy cloth), but a little bit is entirely normal. 

Which returns us to our initial point about anal exploration best being done with a partner you’re comfortable with. 

Poop with a stranger? Awkward. 

Poop with a partner? Annnnd we’re back to sophomoric giggles in a great way. 

Pave the way. 

One word: Lube. 

Many words: We cannot emphasize this one enough,

Chances are you don’t want to use the vaginal lube you already have.

Anal specific lube tends to be a bit thicker (AKA more lube’y) than the vaginal variety. 

As with everything sexual self-love, you may need to explore/discover what works best for you--but keep an eye our for the word ANAL on packaging.

And that’s it.

Giggle, clean, relax, trust, explore. 

Then end.

What’s that?

You’d hoped for toy-specific suggestions as you navigate your way to fifth base?

Never fear.
