Anal practices have been a taboo subject for years which is not normally openly discussed. However, more and more people are starting to explore with their partners to find new ways of giving pleasure, and the anus is without doubt a very sensitive area which can be extremely arousing. You might not be quite ready for anal penetration, but oral sex in the area, known as rimming or anilingus, can be a delicious way of experiencing intense sexual arousal. Don't know where to start ? At oneHOWTO we explain how to give a rim job.

Steps to follow:


Learn more about rimming. Let's begin by breaking the taboos! The anus is one of the most important erogenous zones of both the female and male body. This is because the area around the anus also has nervous terminations, that react as other erogenous areas do. Therefore, stimulating this area is extremely pleasurable. Rimming is one of the best ways to relax the anus and create arousal, making it an excellent form of foreplay before anal or vaginal sex.


Rimming is basically performing oral sex on the anus - i.e. using the mouth and tongue to stimulate the entire area.

You can begin to give a rim job by stroking the buttocks and playing around in the general area. Masturbation is a great way to start this game. It could be you who takes the lead, starting with your partner's vagina or penis, and then slowly moving your hand towards the anus. Once you're there, begin anal stimulation by gently rubbing in a circular motion with your middle finger.


When you are ready to give the rim job, you can go directly to the anus or start by performing oral sex on your partner as you normally would, moving gently with your tongue towards the perineum and finally to the anus.

Use your tongue to massage the area and suck with your mouth. Enjoy the moment - it's is highly exciting for both genders, so whether you're with a girl or a guy, you're sure to be giving them an extremely pleasurable experience. Rest assured, rimming will excite your partner like never before. If it is a little hairy down there, which is quite normal, use your hands to part it and get it out of the way so your tongue doesn't get in the way.

You can always try alternating between rimming and masturbation, creating a build-up of extremely stimulating sensations.


However, remember that in anal sex where your mouth is involved, hygiene is critical. Before practicing or receiving anal sex, make sure you have thoroughly washed the area with an antibacterial soap.

When washing, it's a good idea to introduce the finger into the anus with a little pH neutral soap to clean the entrance of the rectum. If you also intend to have anal sex, then we recommend consulting our hygiene recommendations to make sure it's done it safely.


When you want to give a rim job, and receive it, hair removal is much appreciated, as it greatly helps enjoyment for both parties. It is important, where possible, to try to keep the area free of pesky hairs, or to at least cut them occasionally to make the experience more pleasant.


When you give a rim job, like with any other oral sex, increases the risk of contracting STDs. As such, it is important to protect your health by using dental dams. These are simply squares of latex which are placed in the anal or vaginal area to be stimulated that stop the tongue coming into contact with the fluids of another person.

Dental dams can be bought from many pharmacies or websites, but if you have difficulty finding them, you can simply cut a condom open and use that. First cut it down the middle, then cut out a square shape, and place this over the anus. Both partners will then be protected and ready to enjoy rimming.
