Exploring Anal Play: Hygiene & Releasing Anxieties

Posted by Luciana Burke on

When it comes to preparation for anal play, it's essential to prioritise hygiene and minimise anxiety to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone involved. Here are five pieces of advice:

      1. Communication and Consent: Before engaging in any kind of sexual activity, especially anal play, it's crucial to communicate openly with your partner about your desires, boundaries, and concerns. Establishing consent and understanding each other's expectations can help reduce anxiety and create a more comfortable environment.

      2. Personal Hygiene: Maintaining good personal hygiene is essential for anal play. Taking a thorough shower or bath before engaging in any activity can help you and your partner feel more at ease. Some individuals might also prefer to use an anal douche or enema to clean the rectal area, but it's essential to use these tools with caution and follow the instructions to avoid any potential harm.

      3. Safe Sex Practices: Using condoms or other barrier methods is crucial during anal play, as it helps prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and reduces the risk of bacterial contamination. Water-based lubricants are recommended for use with condoms to minimise the risk of condom breakage.

      4. Relaxation Techniques: Anxiety and tension can make anal play uncomfortable or even painful. Engaging in relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing or mindfulness exercises, can help you feel more relaxed and at ease during the experience. Take your time, go slow, and prioritise comfort.

      5. Proper Lubrication: The anus does not naturally produce lubrication like the vagina, so using a high-quality, water-based lubricant is crucial during anal play. Adequate lubrication reduces friction, making the experience more pleasurable and minimising the risk of tears or abrasions.


At the end of the day our bodies are the same with the same bodily functions! Don't let the thought of 'poo' deter you from experiencing more pleasure.
