    FAQ: Frequent Anal Questions

    There are lots of questions folks have about anal sex. Here's four of the top anal sex questions we receive, along with some helpful links to our guides with much more info. Don't miss our giveaway at the bottom of this post!


    1. "Why do people have anal sex?"

    The anus is full of sensitive nerve endings and situated in very close proximity to all your other erotic bits.

    Fifty Shades of Grey At Ease Anal Lubricant 3.4oz2. "Is anal pleasurable for women?"

    Yes, women can receive intense pleasure and orgasm when anal sex is done right. The clitoris' wishbone shape reaches back toward the anal opening, and you can hit the G-spot (just like the prostate) through her back door too.

    Whatever gender you identify with, make sure you always use plenty of slippery lube. Having anal sex without lube is like running your car without oil. It might kind of work, but you won’t be happy in the end. A thick lube designed specifically for anal play, like the Fifty Shades of Grey At Ease Anal Lubricant is your best bet as it's formulated to stay slippery for longer.

    3. "Why do people use butt plugs?"

    Lovehoney Sensual Glass Butt Plug

    Butt plugs are great for anal stimulation and fullness when playing alone or with a partner. They can help you to prepare for larger items like a dildo or penis, be worn during partner play including vaginal penetration or coupled with a vibrator.

    Interesting to note: We recently analyzed a year's worth of sales data and discovered that single men buy the most and biggest butt plugs and anal sex toys. Glass butt plugs like the Lovehoney Sensual Glass Butt Plug (right) are particularly popular.

    4. "Isn't anal sex messy?"

    Anal sex doesn’t have to be messy. Using an anal douche about 45 minutes to an hour before you play will flush out the anal cavity and decrease mess considerably, allowing you to relax and enjoy the ride.
