Ass Play: What to Expect Your First Time!

guide to ass play

Ass play is an intriguing sexual topic that many people want to learn more about. If you’re new to ass play, it can be scary for your first time. But you shouldn’t worry – it’s normal, and it can be a lot of fun!

Whether you’re interested in anal sex or something lighter, this guide is here to help. We’ll cover everything there is to know about ass play, including what to expect for your first time. 

What Exactly Is Ass Play?

Ass play or anal play refers to any sexual activity relating to the butt. It can involve your partner’s penis, tongue, finger, or any inanimate object like a dildo or sex toy. 

This sexual activity is all about stimulating the anal area. Many people are skeptical at first, but don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it!

Who Can Enjoy Ass Play?

While many people deem “ass play” to be a homosexual act, it can be enjoyed by anyone! Whether you’re bisexual, homosexual, heterosexual, pansexual, or something else, ass play is perfectly normal. 

In other words, it’s suitable for ANYONE to give or receive anal enjoyment. No matter your sexual orientation or gender, ass play is for everyone as long as it’s consensual and done safely.

Is Ass Play Morally Wrong?

Many people are taught that any sexual act involving the ass is just plain wrong. But that’s not true at all! As long as it’s done between consenting adults and safety precautions are taken, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it. 

If you believe it’s wrong for religious regions, then you probably believe that any sexual act is wrong until marriage. In that case, it’s perfectly fine to stick to your morals and wait to have some fun until you’re happily wed to your one true love.

Is Ass Play Bad for Health?

Another common misconception is that ass play is bad for overall health, specifically when it comes to anal health. 

There’s a rumor going around that ass play can cause conditions like hemorrhoids, diarrhea, or constipation. As long as it’s done correctly, you don’t have to worry about this. Of course, ass play isn’t recommended if you already have any of these conditions. 

While it’s unlikely to cause any harm, it can make certain conditions worse if they already exist. For that reason, it’s best to avoid this type of sexual fun until you’ve been given the all-clear from a medical professional. 

Is Ass Play Painful?

Depending on what type of ass play you’re partaking in, there’s a small risk of feeling pain. 

It’s more likely that you’ll feel pleasure, though. The butt is associated with thousands of ultra-sensitive nerve endings. When these nerves are hit the right way, you’re likely to feel some extreme pleasure. 

To avoid pain and promote pleasure, always remember to start out slow. It’s also smart to use a butt-approved lube, like a simple silicone-based lubricant. 

Is Ass Play Messy?

Nobody likes to think about the mess that could happen from ass play. And by mess, I mean that there’s a small risk of a “poopy” situation if you catch my drift. 

But ass play doesn’t have to be messy! The easiest solution is to take a bath or shower beforehand to ensure that the anal area is squeaky clean. Better yet, take a shower with your partner!

If you’re still worried about making a mess, you might consider anal douching. You can read more about this in my complete guide on how to anal douche.  

Is It Possible to Get Pregnant from Ass Play?

It’s very unlikely for a pregnancy to happen from a bit of ass play. Pregnancy is only possible when male sperm comes in contact with female eggs. Even if you haven’t taken human anatomy, you’re probably aware that the eggs are not located in the ass!

If any ejaculated sperm does make its way into the vagina, then yes, there is a risk. But if you’re solely focused on the anal region, this isn’t likely to happen. 

Is There a Risk of STIs?

Any sexual act has some risk of contracting STIs, and ass play is no exception to that rule. No matter the type of fun you’re looking to have, it’s always best to practice safe sex. 

Full anal penetration always requires a condom. For oral ass play, dental dams are a great tool. It’s also smart to use condoms on sex toys like dildos and vibrators. You may even want to wear silicone gloves for simple hand play.

Remember, NO GLOVE NO LOVE, and while it may be tempting, using a condom is the easiest way to keep a clean bill of health. 

Making the Most of Ass Play

Now it’s time to get to the fun stuff! There are a lot of tips and tricks that can help you and your partner to make the most of ass play. Here’s what to do: 

  • Always start slow. Begin on the outside of the body, and never penetrate too quickly! You can relax the area with gentle touches and/or playful licks. This shouldn’t be rushed, and it’s best to have some fun with foreplay for at least 15 minutes. 
  • Always start small. Before going in guns-blazing with full penal penetration, consider using something smaller. A small dildo or sex toy is a great start, and it will better prepare your partner for something bigger. 
  • Always take your time. Remember, there’s no rush! While you may be tempted to have a quickie, ass play is all about taking your time and moving slowly.
