anal newbie

hi veryone

basically the idea of trying something new always excites me and i like the idea of tryinging anal toys etc and was wanderig if any of you lovely people had any tips or reccomendations

thanks x

Start small and get something tapered ,like the lovehoney basics beginners butt plug and use lots and lots of anal lube !!

Good luck ! x

Hi virgin 22, I would recommend getting one of these prostate probes. It is no wider than your little finger. You can reach your prostate easily with half of it still outside for you to be able to move it. With just a little lube you will achieve everything you want to start your anal quest.

Definitely something tapered!
Try having a try with your fingers and see how it feels.
Me and the OH both prefer something that vibrates. We like and to begin

Hi virgin22, the best advice I can give is to take things really slowly. Make sure you use lots of lube - this is essential - I use Sliquid Sassy as it does not contain any chemical nasties - but there are lots of anal lubes on LH to choose from:

Here are a couple of links to some great toys to get you started and also a LH Beginners Anal Kit:

I have also added a couple of Lovehoney Guide links which I think will be helpful :) xx

Hi welcome check out the LH Welcome page -

Why not introduce yourself in the Newbie Initation Test

We are all a lovely bunch of coconuts have fun & enjoy LH x

I suggest douche - simple and makes you clean esp when your using bigger toys as I worked my way up to an anal dildo to get to used to the fact that he will be inside me -

Then I brought this

Honestly try it slow if you enjoy it you enjoy it its not for everyone, dont put any pressure on yourself slow and lube lots of it

start small and keep it well lubed.

Oh - and relax and enjoy it. If you dont feel relaxed then save it for another day

Great comments... I am also looking to experiment in that department soon. Will take all of this advice on board. Good luck!

I found most importantly to make sure to lube the inside of my anus, both rings of muscle with a finger too, as well as they toy.

being very aroused helped alot too :)

You could always get a training set of plugs with an increased size if you think that it is something you would like to try, often works out cheaper than buying an original beginners plug and buying bigger when you get used to it, but make sure you're very comfortable with the smaller size before you move up.

Great advice from everyone so far!

Anal play can be extremely exciting but it needs to be approached delicately as if you go in all guns blazing, you can do some real damage!

First things first - Lube! You will want to get a good quality anal lube - these are usually a little bit thicker than regular lube, but are also just that extra bit slippery. You can also use just a water-based lube, but just be aware that these can dry out quickly and you will need to reapply to ensure whatever you are doing continues to remain comfortable and pleasurable.

When you first start to explore, you don't necessarily want to jump straight in with a toy. When I first start experimenting with anal sex, the first thing i did was use my own finger. You want to start slowly, and with something small, to get you used to the sensations. As you get more comfortable with it, you can build up to something like a small butt plug, and work your way up to something like a prostate massager.

DOUCHING - whilst this isn't really a requirement, for some people it gives them peace of mind that when they do start playing, it's not going to be to messy. The Lovehoney basics douche is a good place to start. It's efficient enough to make you feel cleaner, without being intimidating.

PATIENCE - In order for anything to feel good and pleasurable, you need to take your time and LISTEN to your body. You need to be relaxed, comfortable and aroused (not necessarily physically) but mentally. If at any point, anything you are doing feels uncomfortable or painful - STOP.

But with time, patience and PRACTICE, you will soon find yourself in a world of pleasure.

Definitely look through some of the products that people have linked too, and remember - have fun!
