Analingus, or rimming, is the art of pleasuring the backdoor orally. It’s been an under the sheets practice, and now that it’s out in the open, let’s dive into some fun moves! We’re going to explore why it’s becoming so popular, how to get over the b-hole jitters, plus techniques, tips, and tricks to toss the salad.

Before you start…

Always make sure your partner has given their rumpus a good scrub. There’s an entire industry now devoted to rimming. There are refreshing exfoliants, flavored lubes, and even sprays to keep the full moon fresh and tasty for the eatin’.

This isn’t a MUST for just rimming, but it can help to eat a diet rich in fiber to clear out the pipes to make sure your partner isn’t nervous about any unexpected visitors along the way. Once your partner’s whistle is clean and clear, it’s time to venture forth!

 

Why do we love Rimming?

Now hold up, why is analingus popular? In fact, anal play has been around seemingly since the beginning of time, but as far as recorded history goes, Ancient Greece is our first stop. Ancient Greeks used to use olive oil as anal lubrication and there are even some select Ancient Greek vases showing full on butt eating! They loved it so much they decided to immortalize it.

It seems to be making a resurgence in the mainstream consciousness because of popularity in music – Jhene Aiko popularized the phrase ‘Eat the Booty like Groceries’ in her hit song Post to Be. Cardi B and Nicki Minaj rap often about ass play. It’s clear that it’s high time to give love to the glorious backside.

So as promised, let’s do a full rundown on rimming. Here’s a step-by-step guide of how you can make it the star of your sexy night.

 

The Salad Spinner

Don’t rush straight into the abyss! Go slow. The anal passageway has a HUGE number of nerve endings and makes it super sensitive. The anus is a circular knot of muscle, and will most likely be tense. Start by flicking the tongue around the hole in a slow circular motion. This might be enough to get your partner moaning and groaning if it’s their first time. 

 

Doggie Treat

Next, if your partner is on their back, start from the base of their backside and slowly lick past the hole to the taint. If your partner has male sex organs, feel free to continue licking to the balls and repeat in a methodical fashion. If your partner has female sex organs, be careful not to cross-contaminating. Basically, don’t go from the anus to the vaginal opening. Microscopic fecal particles may start knocking on the front door, and could disrupt the sensitive microbiota of the vagina. 

 

Alphabet Soup

Now that your partner is a little warmed up, Go ahead and get creative! The tongue is the strongest muscle in the body. Go ahead and write your name with your tongue on their backside. It’ll give a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘Spelling is Fun!’ A sexy game to play could be spelling a word using your tongue and having your partner guess. 

Don’t forget to check in!

Now is a good time to check in with your partner. Are they enjoying it? How can you make them feel more comfortable? Are they ready to go further? You’ll be able to tell by how relaxed they are. Not only will the physical muscle be more relaxed, but their body should be looser as well. Keep the mood going by lighting some candles or playing a track for you to bump along to, and get ready to jump back in!

 

Spellicking (this is a bad pun on spellunking)

Now that the hole is loosened, it’s time to try to get a little deeper. You’re ready for your tongue to explore more deeply. Now don’t worry. Your partner has bathed and used a coffee scrub so you’re ready to go! Point your tongue, and slowly nudge it into your partner’s porthole. Push it in, and slowly pull it out. Do this a couple times and you’re going to unlock something primal in your partner.

 

Put It All Together

Now that you know all the steps, it’s time to tie it all together! Using variations of all moves, slowly circle the area, shower it with kisses, lick from the base to the hilt, and then plunge in. By doing all this, your partner is sure to want a repeat ride on the analingus express!

 

***

 

The most important thing to remember is not to be scared of something new, and to make sure you always have consent. Accidents can happen, and it’s important not to shame your partner or think that something going left is normal. Be open to new experiences, and have fun exploring each other hole-heartedly!
