Butt First, Four Things to Know About Ven­tur­ing into the Great Bum-Known

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - LOVE -

HY­GIENE

Trim your nails, go to the bath­room, and wash your hands first, says sex­ol­o­gist Emily Morse, host of the ‘ Sex with Emily’ podcast.

SAFETY

STIs can be passed be­tween part­ners. To min­imise your risk, make sure you al­ways use pro­tec­tion – a con­dom or a den­tal dam.

COM­FORT

Un­like your vag, your bum isn’t self- lu­bri­cat­ing. Use sil­i­cone lube to avoid painful fric­tion, says Ali­cia Sin­clair of anal sex-toy com­pany b-Vibe.

RE­LAX­ATION

If you’re too anx­ious, your sphinc­ter mus­cles can tense up. (Ouch.) Go slow and sync your breath­ing to your boo’s gen­tle thrusts.
