If you are reading this article, you are probably wondering how to do it right the first time. Or maybe you are a guru, who wants to know if he’s been doing it right all this time. In any case, we are going to be as straightforward about anal sex as possible. So if you are feeling touchy or shy today, it’s better to skip this informative read.

  1. Clean It Up

We all know what we used the anus for the last time we went to the bathroom. Yes, the reality is that one body part can serve several purposes. So, gross thoughts aside, you have to clean it up. Douching is an integral part of any anal sex. Your butt must be so squeaky-clean that you could eat off it. In order not to make the douching process long and painful, watch what you eat. Spicy beans are out of the question. You don’t want to be dealing with loose stool.

  1. Think About Safety

Even though pregnancy is obviously not on your mind, STDs should be. Unless you are in a long and trusting relationship with your partner, you have to be cautious. Condoms are another integral part of anal sex. Thankfully, they come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and flavors to enhance the process and extend the pleasure.

  1. Invest In A Lubricant

Your rectum and anus don’t produce natural lubrication so it’s up to you to oil them up. In fact, without a lube, your anal sex is bound to be painful. Neither of you would enjoy the process. So go out and invest in a lubricant. By the way, we have a wide selection of lubes in our “Liquids” section. But if you are in a big hurry, you can buy a bottle of KY Jelly at the nearest store.

  1. Relax And Enjoy

If you are too worried about things going wrong, they most likely will. Your sphincter muscle must relax in order to let the penis inside. If you aren’t in the mood, this is unlikely to happen. Allow a more experienced partner to guide you. If you are afraid to botch the process, you may want to practice at home with a finger or a dildo. There isn’t anything strange about practice. It makes perfect! High-quality anal sex is an important part of every gay couple’s life. Being careful and smart about the process allows you to enjoy your relationship to its fullest extent. To bring some diversity to your sex life, consider trying sex toys.
