Intro to Anal

Posted by The Love Store

Anal Sex: not your first choice? That’s alright, with the right mind set, being informed on how to make it pleasurable, and a willing and comfortable partner, maybe then you can get into it.


If you didn’t know this already, then listen up- anal play comes in many forms that don’t have to include penetration!


“The anus has a high concentration of nerve endings and is considered an erogenous zone. This makes it a perfect area to focus on in sexual play and touch. Light, manual stimulation is a great way to ease into things and explore some anal foreplay. This is something you can do solo or with a partner. But remember, when trying something new in the bedroom, always make sure you get consent before going there!”- Emily Morse (Sex educator, @sexwithemily)


Touch and Tease

You can simply take your fingers or even the edge of the palm of your hand and lightly rub or touch the area around the anus to stimulate it. You can work your fingers in a small circular motion and definitely use lube to make the movements smoother. Don’t neglect the perineum, especially for you fellas.  


Try varying degrees of pressure. Start light and work your way around the entire butt. It might help you to massage your partner’s butt cheeks before you move into the center of the action, to loosen up the area and provide some nice, easy stimulation.

Tip #1: Jump in the shower! Begin exploration of your own body and comfort levels when the area is wet and slippery. This way you can double up on cleaning the area and touching it in ways that feel sensual.


Tip #2: Always make sure to clean your toys before and after use. Never share a vaginal and anal toy in the same session as bacteria can easily be transmitted between areas

Intro to Lubes

Posted by The Love Store

Water-based

Known as the most versatile of the lubes. This lube is your safest bet to start with- it can be used for masturbation, sex toy play, and penetrative sex. According to studies, water-based lubes are also safe to use with condoms- both latex and non-latex. Overall, it will not stain your sheets, it’s easy on sensitive skin, and wishes off easily with water.


Silicone-based

Slippery, long lasting, and ideal for longer sessions. Even more, it requires less lube be applied and re-applied less often. Unlike a water-base that will wash right off, silicone-based lube is great for shower sex, although may require more water and soap to wash off. However, there is a con to silicone-based lube, contrary to the name, it can deteriorate the surface of silicone toys. This can ultimately make it unsafe over time to use the toy because of the potential of bacteria to grow in the broken-down rubber.

Oil-based

If you do not want the hassle of having to reapply at all once you get going- don’t worry, this lube is a gift to you. Oil-based lube can double as a sexy and sensual massage oil as well. Downsides? Oil (and any other oil products like petroleum jelly or mineral oil) should not be used with latex condoms as they are known to dissolve the latex and break. Do not forget, oil tends to stain sheets and clothing and make it difficult to clean up.


Natural Lube

Natural lubes have been growing in popularity for years because many are curious as to what they are really putting down there. Look for lubes with natural or a small number of ingredients on their list. There are vegan and paraben-free options without smell or taste as well.



How to Lube-Up

There is no rule book on when or how to use lube. Apply it liberally, be the vagina, penis, or anus. Whether you need the added comfort during intercourse, your body isn’t producing its natural lubricants in the heat of the moment, or you just want to make penetrative sex easier- then LUBE UP!

*Tip: Pour lube into your hands and warm it up with your body heat before application for a more pleasurable experience for you and your partner.
