There’s no doubt that a regular old mazz sesh is a helluva time, but have you ever dabbled with its back door counterpart?! Put simply, anal masturbation involves stimulating the nipsy and the surrounding areas for sexual pleasure. Simples!

If you’re thinking of exploring your freckle but you’re not sure where to start, here are our top five tips for anal masturbation:

1. Lube that ring


If you’ve never been outback before, then investing in a good, water-based anal lube is an absolute must! If you weren’t aware, the clacker isn’t self-lubricating like other areas of the anatomy, so anal lube is essential for dialling up the moist-o-metre and getting the area ready for action.

Our top pick is Lovehoney Discover Water-Based Anal Lubricant, which is super thick and long-lasting, making it perfect for a bit of bumfunnery.

2. Get in all the zones


Anal masturbation isn’t just about the bot-bot! If you’re not quite ready to dive straight into bum play, then turn yourself on the old fashioned way. Focus on your other erogenous zones until you’re feeling a little hot to trot before turning your attention to your patootie.

Water-based anal lubes are usually a safe bet as they can be paired with all types of sex toy materials and most condoms. To be safe, always read the product description before you start slathering it on.

3. Get ready to rumble


Anal masturbation just doesn’t work when you’re starting off cold. You need to get that fire in your loins lit before you go wandering over to the back door. Start by rubbing one out around the front to really get the blood flowing. Once you’ve got the horn, you’ll find your bod will be much more relaxed, which makes bum stuff a lot more fun.

Once you’re sufficiently turned on, you can focus your attention of your sphinctacular. Start by rubbing your anoos with a well lubed finger.

Once you’re ready to try inserting your digit, it can help to contract your Kegels and booty at the same time. On the release as your muscles relax, gently slip a digit about a quarter of an inch up your clacker. Try your best to stay relaxed for a few seconds before sliding your finger back out and repeating the process of squeezing and relaxing your muscles and sliding in a finger, working it a little deeper every time.

Some people find that stroking their clit or peenie at the same time can help to elevate their pleasure. You might even want to introduce a beginner-friendly anal sex toy into the mix if you’re struggling to reach your posterior with your fingers alone. From anal dildos to anal vibes and good old fashioned butt plugs, we’ve got plenty of patootie playthings to help you on your anal masturbation journey.

But remember: if you’ve got a V, never swap a toy or finger that’s been used on your booty to stimulate your downstairs or you might wind up with a nasty infection. Pick a butt hand for anal masturbation and stick to it.

4. Positioning is everything


Not all positions were made equal, especially when it comes to backdoor lovin’. The trick when getting yourself set up for anal play is to choose a possie that provides easy access to the rump and booty eye if you’re gearing up for penetration.

If you’re quite literally stuck or can’t get the position down pat, then you might want to consider grabbing a position enhancer like a pillow or wedge to help ease that access.

While anal masturbation can be a fun time for everyone, there are a couple of small differences between anal mazzin’ for people with peenies versus vagina owners, but that’s not to say they’re not equally pleasurable. Here’s how fiddling with your freckle differs for penis owners.

Male anal masturbation for people with penises

If there’s one thing that penis owners have over others when it comes to anal masturbation, it’s the ability to stimulate their prostate or P-Spot. This walnut-sized gland sits between the penis and the bladder and is best reached, you guessed it, up the jacksie. When stimulated correctly, it can lead to more intense orgasms, full body-climaxes and even multiple finales in a row. Consider this your sign to give anal fapping a crack.

Sometimes it can be a little tricky to hit that special place with your fingers alone, but the good news is that there’s a whole range of toys specifically designed to cater to the hidden walnut. Prostate massagers and toys are perfectly curved with a rounded head to hit your sweet spot. Just give it a good dowsing with your favourite lube before slipping it up your keister for a guaranteed good time.

Anal masturbation for women and vulva owners

While the lads and penis owners can have fun with their prostate, that’s not to say that people with a vagina can’t have just as much fun when it comes to anal masturbation.

The clitoris is a truly wondrous organ, with the legs extending all the way back into your tushy. So when you indulge in a bit of anal masturbation as a vulva owner, there’s a good chance you could strike gold by stimulating your pretty pistachio as well as all of those other sensitive nerve endings up your nipsy.

Another great thing about anal masturbation with a poonani is that you can enjoy double penetration. As the saying goes, ‘two holes are better than one’, so if you’ve got a vajango you can penetrate your puss and patootie all at the same time.

What is Double Penetration?

Unlike what you might have been led to believe in porn, you don’t have to have a lovin’ oven to enjoy double penetration, or DP.

Put simply, DP is just the act of penetrating two holes at once, whether that’s mouth-vagina, vagina-vagina, vagina-anus, anus-anus, the list goes on, but the main point is that anyone and everyone can enjoy and participate in double penetration. You can even enjoy DP with your lover using a double ended dildo or during a solo session. It’s completely up to you how you want to customise your DP fun.

How Does Double Penetration Work?

There’s a whole bunch of different ways to dabble in DP, whether you’re enjoying some self-love or you’ve got your boo on board.

5. Keep it clean


If you’re incorporating toys into your rump ranging expedition, then it’s incredibly important to keep them clean! We suggest using a specially formulated sex toy cleaner like the Lovehoney Fresh Toy Cleaner to keep your toys spick and span.

It’s a Lovehoney favourite for a reason - here’s what one happy Lovehoney customer had to say: “Great product for getting all your goodies cleaned up post play. Easy to use and leaves you feeling confident and reassured that your toys are sanitary and ready for any future fun.”
