Our anus is the most sensitive of all our openings. As such it feels amazing when played with and penetrated. However, care must be taken to avoid a painful experience when engaging in anal play. Pleasurable anal penetration is best prepared by effective anal dilation, which is too often overlooked or underestimated. Think of dilation as a yoga class for your anus. It will keep you healthy and flexible.
Anal dilation, also called anal stretching, is the process of gradually widening the anus. The anus is mainly made of soft tissues and sphincter muscles, and dilating increases their flexibility and prevents them from becoming too tight.
