Anal sex can sometimes can generate a little bit of anxiety. So let the receiver set the pace with an on-top position. One of our Center Stages works great for this because your partner will be able to lower themselves slowly to the depth that they feel comfortable, and with the feet firmly planted on the floor, they will be able to go at a pace that feels comfortable. The added height helps with to take pressure off the thighs, or the giver can shift his or her hips forward so the receiver can put their knees on the ground or mattress.
When it comes to anal, a modified missionary will never steer you wrong. Approach this favorite vanilla sex position with a backdoor twist by adding the Wedge/Ramp Combo. In this position, you’ll be able to place your ankles the givers shoulders and direct them on how to best put you at ease. Plus, it gives the giver a clear visual on his or her target with and easier way to thrust without a lot of effort. With the right amount of lube and relaxation, even initial penetration should be pleasurable.
Eye contact during anal sex is a great form of non-verbal communication—it lets your eyes do all the talking. This position is preferred if you are looking for extra intimacy during the act. Start with your partner sitting as you mount his lap, face-to-face on the Esse. Once again—as the partner on top, you can control the depth of penetration to stay comfy. Face-to-face anal has the added bonus of extra stimulation for the woman—breasts, clitoris, go crazy!
Anal while resting the Flip Ramp is comfortable and easy, especially with the right amount of foreplay beforehand. First-timers can relax and make penetration enjoyable by resting on their stomach and arching slightly upward. For women, this elevates the backside nicely and still gives enough room to stimulate other body parts.
In this reversed position, your partner lies down on the Hipster while you mount on top—yeehaw! As the partner on top, you can ease into anal penetration by moving up or down as needed. Here’s a pro tip: Make sure your bottom partner does not begin to thrust until you’re good and ready. They’ll love the show too!
