Anal massage - an essential form of anal foreplay - can be a great way to arouse your partner and get them in the mood for anal intercourse. Follow our soft-core illustrations and treat your partner to an anal massage with these 8 sensual moves.
Penis-owners and vulva-owners are both blessed with countless erotic nerve endings located at the anal opening- stimulating them with your tongue a.k.a rimming or with your fingers can feel extremely pleasurable!
Also, an anal massage is the perfect way to prepare your body for anal sex.
Before you do anything, ask for consent. We recommend having this conversation in a room where you and your partner don’t regularly have sex or aren’t planning to have sex. So, the bedroom is off-limits.
During an open and honest conversation, ask each other: Is an anal massage something that you both want to do? If either person answers no, then accept that answer. Don't pressurize them into doing something that they're not comfortable with. Now if you both say, “yes”, that's awesome!

Always wash your hands before and after anal play. Besides the obvious, you’ll want to trim your nails and keep them short. We also recommend filing them to make sure that there aren’t any sharp edges that could cause tears in the anus (!).
And if you’re still concerned about hygiene, simply use a glove or a “finger condom”.

Start your anal massage by making circular motions around the rim.
Another excellent anal massage technique is to make smaller circular motions around the anus.
Stroke the anus gently using one finger to give your partner a different sensation.
The three-finger technique offers wider stimulation and is said to be more pleasurable.
Rubbing the rosebud can enhance sexual satisfaction.
Use three fingers for greater stimulation.
When you're ready to involve both hands, stroke down to create a multitude of sensations.
Rub the rim up with both hands. If you're comfortable, you can also introduce a little tongue action.
Once you've perfected these external anal massage moves, your partner might be ready for anal fingering.
Like anal massage, fingering can often provide incredible sensations and it involves inserting a finger or fingers into the anus for sexual pleasure. Men will usually find anal fingering particularly pleasurable because it can lead to the stimulation of the prostate, which is the equivalent to a woman’s G-spot.
Before you move on to anal penetration, we highly recommend that you try anal fingering.
