A Guide to Anal Sex for Beginners

Bottom Fun

Anal sex isn't necessarily your first topic of conversation, whether you have a new partner or have been with someone for many years. However, it is something that should (in our opinion) be explored or at least talked about. It doesn't have to be frightening, intimidating or 'wrong'; with an open-minded attitude, it can deliver a great deal of pleasure for all involved.

Anal sex is one of life's major taboo subjects and we at Sent to Thrill want to help change your perception of it - and discover the pleasures that both men and women can enjoy.

This how to guide will hopefully allow you to think a little more about the benefits of anal sex or bottom fun as we like to call it.

Why try anal sex?

Firstly, did you know that your anus has loads of nerve endings that mean it is extremely sensitive. With the right stimulation, it can contribute to amazing orgasms for both sexes. For men, the benefits seem clear cut, as massaging the prostate is known to give mind-blowing orgasms, but there's also a health benefit: the prostate stores stale semen that needs a release! Remember, it's not called the P-Spot for nothing!

For women, anal sex can also lead to orgasm or contribute to positive feelings. The clitoris has leg nerve endings that can stretch through the labia minora into the anus. So, if you get the angle right and give the clitoris a little extra stimulation there is no reason why you shouldn't experience an amazing orgasm. What's not to love!

Getting started

Once you and your partner have decided to try it, a toy is a great place to start. These can be smaller and less intimidating than the real thing, but even with a small toy you'll need lubricant as the anus, unlike the vagina, doesn't produce its own.

Most health professionals recommend using a high-quality, water-based lubricant and Sent to Thrill we offer two options. YES Organic Lubricant contains only natural, organically- certified ingredients and it won't overpower your natural senses.

Which anal toys should you try?

If you are new to this world and would like to try something simple then we highly recommend the Omeda.


The Omeda can be used solo or as a couple, the vibrating beads are easy to insert and you can do one at a time which means you take it slow and at your own pace. There's also a vibrating penis ring and clitoral stimulator which can heighten the sensations all round! All in all, it's a great place to start.


Another fantastic starter toy is the Apollo. It's ultra-smooth body has a series of ribs that increase in size, so it needn't be intimidating but can also give a great deal of pleasure for those with more confidence. With a multi-speed vibrator and ring handle, it's a great way to explore anal sex for the first time.


So, remember before you begin this journey make sure you are clean and well lubricated, and chose the right toy! Good luck on your bottom fun journey and please let Sent to Thrill know what you think of our products. We are always looking to improve our lines and toys. Have fun out there...
