Masturbation Monday... Anal Play

It is Monday and today is all about anal masturbation. Yes you can receive and enjoy self pleasure my playing with your anus! Like the vagina and penis there are sensitive nerve endings that create arousal and excitement. Recently anal play has been getting a lot of attention lately. Let's look at what anal masturbation is and ways masturbate.

Simply put, anal masturbation is any sort of self-stimulation of your anus, rectum, or prostate for the purpose of sexual pleasure.

What are the benefits?

We do know the benefits of masturbation is promotes better sleep, reduces stress, can improve your mood and relieves pain.

Can you have an orgasm?

Yes you can. We all have a butt.. some small some big, but whatever the size anyone can experience pleasure — from anal stimulation, regardless of gender or genitals.

The anal opening and canal have a wealth of nerve endings that are primed for pleasure,” adds Caitlin V., MPH, clinical sexologist for Royal.

For people with vulvas, internal anal play can also stimulate areas of the vaginal canal and larger clitoral structure.

And if you have a prostate — a walnut-sized gland located about 2 inches inside the rectum — you’re in luck. According to Adam Levoy, CEO of prostate health and pleasure brand Giddi, prostate stimulation can strengthen penile orgasms by 30 percent.

Manual stimulation

You don’t really need anything other than lube to be able to explore anal play. You can use your fingers to pleasure and massage the rim of your anus, as well as explore some shallow penetration.

If you have a vulva and are using your fingers, make sure you wash your hands thoroughly before touching your vulva to help prevent infection.

The same applies if you have a penis: Wash your hands before touching your penis head.

Alternatively, you can use latex or nitrile gloves that you can take off and toss in the trash afterward.

Butt plugs

Plugs are probably the most popular and most widely recognized anal toy.

Designed to be inserted into your anus and provide a feeling of fullness, butt plugs are often worn while you’re engaging in another form of stimulation, like clitoral, penile, or erogenous play. In this way, they can add to the experience.

They come in an array of styles, shapes, colors, sizes, and materials. With silicone, you can choose between motorized and nonmotorized plugs. Either type is great for beginner anal play, as long as you choose a modest-sized toy.


Use lube. The anus is not self lubricated like the vagina so lubrication is a must. Practice breathing techniques to avoid tension or experience pain. Have fun!
