Analingus or rimming is simply using your mouth, tongue, lips and sometimes teeth to stimulate your partner's anus and (in the case of a male recipient) his testicles. As the anus has so many sensitive nerve-endings, it can be incredibly pleasurable for both men and women. Lots of couples enjoy rimming during foreplay, or as a sexy accompaniment to oral sex.
Rimming is sometimes referred to as 'playing the rusty trombone', which is when the person who is giving the oral attention also reaches around to the penis and makes rapid stroking movements up and down the shaft. The mouth-to-bottom coupled with arm actions resembles someone playing a brass instrument.
Interested in trying rimming or playing the rusty trombone? We've put together some tips to help you enjoy safe and satisfying play.

Male masturbators give a better-than-real feel, with textures that stimulate and tease the nerve endings in the penis better than a hand ever could.
Male masturbators, like strokers, make a great first time sex toy for men – they're easy to use, inexpensive, easy to clean and give out-of-this-world stimulation.
They also make a great addition to couple’s play, spicing up any kind of hand or mouth action. If you or your partner have reservations about male sex toys because of their realistic look, a non-anatomical masturbator is a great alternative.

One of the most popular, and best value, sex toys is the bullet vibrator. A bullet sex toy is a great first-choice vibe, a fantastic couple's toy and an essential part of every girl's toy collection. A vibrating bullet is a small, bullet-shaped clitoral stimulator and bullet vibrators all share three key features: they're discreet, powerful and versatile.
Bullet vibrators are discreet and because they are small they tend to be quieter than, say, a rabbit vibrator. They're easy to hide in your lingerie drawer, handbag, glove compartment or suitcase for a weekend away.
If you're new to bullet vibrators or are considering adding one to your toy collection, here's a guide that will help you decide which one to get.
