You may have noticed that your anal canal, called your rectum, is very tight. Going straight from not having anything in there to having a full erect penis inside it can be intense, and even painful, if not done correctly. We’ll talk more a bit later about how to make sure anal sex feels pleasurable, but something you can do beforehand is get used to having a larger item up there. General practice is to start with a finger (yours or your partner’s) or a thin sex toy, and work your way up.
One of the first misconceptions about anal sex is that it’s unclean because it involves butts. In actuality, your anus has natural bacteria that helps fight infection, and if you clean your body regularly, your butt is as clean as the rest of you. So you don’t need to wash yourself right before you check out anal penetration, although by all means, do so if it will make you or your partner more comfortable.
You may want to put down a towel — again, to make you feel more comfortable, but also because you’re definitely going to use a lot of lube (more on that later), which, by its slippery nature, gets everywhere.
