Anal Play: Why People Do Anal

Anal Play: Why People Do Anal

Well... Why Anal? 

Well… why not? Anal play is enjoyable for men, women, and non-binary folk. There are thousands of nerve endings that line the anal cavity that when stimulated properly are extremely pleasurable; this can be through massage, stretching, friction, or even vibration (honestly, it doesn’t end there), but anal play is just like any other sexual act and has physical, mental, and spiritual benefits behind doing “it” (pun intended).


An Anatomy Lesson

Booty play doesn’t just magically “feel” good. In fact, there’s a lot of science into the stimulation behind it!

For our lucky ladies, and friends with vaginas, anal stimulation tends to be a bonus – many like the feeling of fullness that it offers, and that it can be another way to stimulate the G-spot through the vaginal walls. Because let’s face it, a toy in both the vagina and the anus, or a penis in either, sounds deliciously wicked – and can feel even better! Embrace maximising your pleasure!

For the gentleman or people with prostates however, anal unleashes a pandora’s box of pleasure!
So, let’s discuss the P-Spot! The prostate (P-spot, much like the G-spot), is a gland that’s positioned around the neck of the bladder and is most accessible through anal play. Stimulating this gland is another way of achieving that highly sought-after toe-curling orgasm, with prostate stimulation usually being regarded for its stronger, deeper, and more powerful orgasms (than penile stimulation alone). Additionally, the penis is more-or-less anchored at the prostate, so when you massage a guy’s prostate you also transmit sensation to the base of his penis, and now doesn’t that sound fun!


What Stimulation Goes Where? 

  • Much like the vagina, the outer third of the anus contains more nerve endings than the anal canal and responds best to touch and vibration. 

  • The inner portion (inside the canal, and the second muscle ring you will feel) has fewer nerve endings near the surface and responds to feelings of fullness, pressure, and rhythm.


In recent times, there has been a common stigmatisation surrounding the receiving and enjoyment of anal pleasure for men. However, the anal cavity and prostate do not have a sexual orientation, and are not determinate of who you are attracted to. Regardless of your identity or orientation, anal play is for every-booty!


Power Dynamics

Another enjoyable aspect of anal play can be the taboo/forbidden nature of the area, and incorporating power play dynamics into your anal play.

Common kinks associated with anal play include (but are not limited to): 

  • Arousal due the pain or discomfort that can occur
  • Embracing past stigmatisations and getting off on the "taboo" nature of it. 

It’s important to remember, that a pleasurable experience can be just as much mental as physical! If you're turned on by taboos and the power play experience anal can entail, that's valid too! Just remember to play safe folks!



Spicing Up Between the Sheets

Breaking away from the usual tango routine in the bedroom, isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and is a great way to keep things fresh and exciting. We’re constantly discovering new sensations across our bodies, and let’s be real; You never know until you give it a go! Booty play offers up a completely unique sensation than any other type of sex – and although, daunting, is well worth it.

Trying new experiences can also hep you become more sexually adventurous – really, it’s the gateway sex to all your kinky fantasies!



Final Thoughts

As you can see, there’s a good reason for the uprising popularity of anal play. Not only does it provide physical, mental, and spiritual stimulation but it’s also an awesome way to build your intimacy with your sexual partner.
