We have so many erogenous zones and a plethora of sensory nerve endings in the anus, so if even if you don’t want to go all the way with anal sex, this can be a great way to experience those feelings! It is a unique sexual and sensual sensation that can be enjoyed by anyone, no matter what equipment you have downstairs! When done right, it gives a pleasure that will make it sure that you’ll want to add to your rotation again and again.

How to do anal edging

If you’re ready to dive into the anal edging experience, you’ll be happy to know that there’s a variety of ways that you can try this. You can start just by stimulating the perineum (outside part) with finger play, spanking or rimming. Step it up with sessions that go even deeper! Playing with accessories and toys like butt plugs, anal beads, or even using a vibrator. It’s really important to just be open, relax, and enjoy the feeling. As always, constant communication on what feels good and what doesn’t is key.

This sex trend is so great because it expands on what we can define as anal sex. Penetration does not have to be the only way to get pleasure down there!

Final tip

If you’re ready to dip into some anal play, that’s great. It’s worth mentioning that when engaging in any sexual activity, regardless of orifice, hygiene is important. It goes without saying to wash well down there, especially if you’re going to engage in some tantalizing anal teasing. A quick wash right before your session might just make things comfortable for both parties, in the name of freshness and making sure you don’t get any infections down there!
