Recently we had National Masturbation Month, so why not keep this trend going and welcome Augusts’ Anal Pleasure Month! San Francisco based sex shop, Good Vibrations has declared August, Anal Pleasure Month by putting together a timeline of the history of anal sex, along with a month of workshops and events in California. Well, for those of us down under who can not be in California at this time, we might just have to have anal sex instead.
Anal sex is still a taboo topic, making it high on the list of fantasies and acts performed in porn. But why should anal sex be any difference from other types of sex? It’s a personal choice and not everyone is in favour of the back door (and that’s perfectly normal and ok) but for those who are, why should it be considered more taboo, more naughty and more risky than anything else (if it is because of the poop thing? Just like in life, with anal sex, shit can happen – get over it).
So in order to help normalise anal sex and get you all talking (whether that is expressing you desires to do it or expressing your plans to keep that end out of bounds) I am going to share a great information section from the Good Vibes websites which will provide you with all the relevant info needed to explore the world of anal pleasure.
But wait, just when you think I was done talking about bottoms!
My Top Tips To Anal
- Talk about it before you do it
- Have a shower together so you feel clean
- Start small, either with a finger or toy – the anus needs foreplay too
- Never put anything in that does not have a flared base or handle
- Always use lube
- Try relax and have fun
And to celebrate Anal Pleasure Month, I want to help you get more pleasure out of your bum fun. Till the end of August, when you purchase the Calla anal vibe by Fun Factory or the Tano plug vibe by Picobong you will also receive a free Organic Glide Lubricant by Viamax and Toy Cleaner by Lelo, valued together at $41.
Happy Anal Pleasure Month
