If you want to experience intense orgasms or shake things up in the bedroom – anal penetration can deliver. Enjoying the backdoor action that you have been craving might be easier said than done. From anal numbing lubes to stretching exercises, there are plenty of tricks that can help you do it.

From preparation to penetration, a positive anal sex experience requires everything to be just right. If not, it can be painful or discouraging, especially if it’s your first time or if it’s been a long time since your last trip through the rear entrance.

Maybe you’ve even given up on anal sex altogether due to an adventure gone wrong. Don’t worry. It can be comfortable and pleasurable with the right approach.

Using Anal Numbing Lube

Anal numbing lube take time to work, so apply it a good 10 minutes before show time. To avoid unwanted numbness, make sure that he uses a condom unless he wants the desensitizing effect to help him last longer. You can also wipe the lubricant off and use a conventional silicone or water-based lube after you’re numb.

When in doubt, ask your partner to slow down, and apply even more lubricant. You can also use a lube launcher to inject the product where it needs to be.
