“Our anuses have thousands of nerve endings that respond to stimulation,” a columnist by the name of “Jake” writes in Glamour’s Sex and Dating section. “I learned this firsthand in my twenties when, after several drinks at a bar, I went home with an old college friend. We fooled around for a while, and then I suddenly found myself on all fours as she used her hands up front and stuck her tongue where the sun don’t shine.”
Jake says it caught him by surprise. And not the fact that the girl’s face was buried in his backside, but that he actually liked it.
“It was incredible,” he confesses.
What made it so incredible, you ask? The taboo factor, Jake says.
“We always want to think we are pioneers, boldly going where no man (or woman) has gone before,” he writes. “For my friend Darren, the idea [of rimming] alone is a turn-on: ‘It’s hot to know that a woman is even willing to try anal,’ he says. Just the possibility of something slightly forbidden is enough to spice things up.”
“When done right,” Jake continues, “anal play can be adventurous and unexpected, two elements that keep sex novel in a relationship.”
He says he now considers anilingus as “just another tool in the toolbox.”
“Another back road, if you will, to explore,” he says. “Most men I know will try anything, anal or otherwise, if they think it will turn you on.”
