Nerve.com has a fantastic column on getting to grips with anal intercourse, one of their regular "I Did It For Science" series - "My vagina and clit both receive inordinate attention, but my anus is like an awkward middle child who only gets noticed when acting up. In all my years of self-pleasuring, I have barely dared to touch it. The few times I've tried anal intercourse have lasted less than five minutes and ended with me leaping off the bed in pain. But there are people whose assholes are relaxed epicenters of pleasure. I too want to enjoy anal sex. My asshole's going to be tagging along throughout my entire life, so it might as well be in on the fun." Lovehoney has, of course, a huge range of anal toys specially designed to bring you back end pleasure.
