While the butt has been quite taboo in the past, that mentality has shifted as of late.

To put it simply - more and more people are trying various forms of anal play.

Whether it is plain anal sex.

Or playing with just fingers.

Or for the most intense pleasure, playing with anal toys.

But while anal play has become more mainstream in society, so many people do not approach anal play the right way.

They make inserting anal toys much more difficult than they have to be.

Which only makes the anal play less satisfying as a whole.

In this article, we describe in detail what makes anal play so pleasurable.

We'll also discuss two tips on how you (and your partner) can ensure that your anal play is always intimate and pleasurable.

Sphincter Muscles - the key to anal play

As mentioned numerous times on our other anal guides, the pleasure of anal toys does not come from the anal cavity itself.

It comes from the sphincter muscles.

In general, sphincter muscles are circular muscles that constrict and control a natural body passage or orifice.

In our case, we are talking about anal sphincters that control the passage of materials through the anus.

And there are actually two main sphincter muscles associated with the anal cavity.

The outer sphincter muscles and the inner sphincter muscles.

These are the muscles that are designed to relax when something passes through them.

Your anal cavity has two distinct sphincter muscles, which are they key to anal stimulation.

Nerve endings are key

The outer sphincter muscles have many nerve endings, which is a big reason they are so pleasurable to stimulation.

And when you have objects of various size, shape and quantity passing through these muscles, they really create an endless supply of pleasurable sensations!

Big tip for receiving objects in the anus: Relax!

When playing with anal beads or anal plugs, one common issue with first timers is their inability to get the toys into their anus easily.

This is actually the case for any sort of anal play, including plain old anal sex.

The reason they have difficulty is fairly simple.

They need to simply relax!

Relaxing your mind and body will naturally relax the sphincter muscles that cause resistance to insertion and removal of foreign objects.

And while tension is actually a natural reflx to foreign objects entering your anus, you need to reverse that mentality.

Doing so will lead to smooth and easy entry and exit of your toys.

And this will feel significantly more pleasurable than if your sphincter muscles were to try and squeeze the objects too tightly in resistance.

So when inserting anal beads into your body, try your best to relax.

Remind yourself that this is a fun, pleasurable experience.

And that simply relaxing will elevate the pleasure immensely!

Tip for partners: Be gentle!

While the receiver of anal toys will be getting the bulk of the pleasure, it is important not to forget how your partner (if any) should behave.

Anal play is a delicate balance of pain and pleasure.

And so your partner, if helping to insert the anal toys into their partners, must be gentle.

This also applies if your partner is helping to remove the anal toys as well.

Being gentle is a simple step that ensures that anal play for you is pleasing, but never becomes outright painful.

Anal Play - Take it slow for orgasmic results

Anal play can be quite incomparable in terms of pleasure.

The end result can even be orgasms which, while rare, feel so amazing.

But it requires the proper mindset and execution from both receiver (and any partner who is participating).

If the receiver can relax their sphincter muscles, and the giver is gentle and intimate, your anal play with be fantastic and unforgettable.
