How do I prepare for anal sex?

Anal sex is more popular than ever. With that popularity comes a lot of first-time mishaps, inaccurate information, fear, pressure, and shame. Preparing for any kind of anal play should start very slowly. I never recommend going from zero to anal. Start when you are already warmed up with some light touching around the area. My top three tips for anal-course are going slow, using a lot of lube, and breathing. Just like with every sex act, make sure you are getting explicit consent, and that both you and your partner are interested in trying anal play together.
