Analingus or rimming is the act of performing oral sex of the anal area. Analingus is not a common sexual practice even today, but times are changing. If you are curious and open to new adventures, analingus can bring you a multitude of wonderful sensations and is also an excellent warm-up for anal sex. The anus is lined with many sensitive nerve endings, so when these are stimulated by the touch of a warm, wet tongue, the result can be quite pleasurable. The key to enjoying these new sensations is to get over any inhibitions and embrace analingus as an incredibly sensual and intimate act between lovers.
Once considered taboo, attitudes towards anal play have relaxed in the last two or three decades. Research shows that more and more people are enjoying anal play. In the US, a 2002 survey showed that 40% of men and 35% of women had tried anal sex with an opposite sex partner. If you’re new to anal play, anal fingering is the best way to start experiencing anal pleasure. Follow these four steps to ensure a fun and pleasurable first-time experience.

When we got married, I told my husband that I loved attention at the back door during sex. I had never had sex with anyone else, but I knew that I was an anal type of girl. I knew from the time I was a teen, that I liked anal play. I noticed that my orgasms were stronger when I would caress that area or insert something just prior to climaxing. I would incorporate it into my masturbating. My husband has been very accommodating to me, and our sex life has been wonderful! I have decided to write a little about anal play, from my perspective.

The anus, richly endowed with nerve endings and interconnected with the main pelvic muscles, is the closest erogenous neighbor of the genitals and contracts rhythmically during orgasm. Thirty-five years ago, Kinsey stated that the anal region had erotic significance for about half of the population. In a survey of 100,000 Playboy readers, 47 percent of the men and 61 percent of the women admitted to having tried anal intercourse.

Others may prefer the insertion of a dildo or vibrator beyond the anal opening and short anal canal into the larger rectum. Many men, including hetereosexuals, prefer this form of penetration.
Oral-anal lovemaking is popularly known as rimming. [See my post Analingus: The Dark Kiss.] The very idea disgusts some people. Others enjoy performing it or allowing themselves to be probed in this special way. Read more
Do you want to have anal sex with your wife or girlfriend, but are uncertain about her reaction? Many women are curious about anal sex, but are scared about comfort and safety issues.
