What is Rimming?
Rimming, also known as Anal-Oral Sex or Analingus, is the sexual act of pleasuring the anus with the lips, mouth and tongue. Men and women of all sexual orientations can enjoy this sex act. Analingus is a high risk activity for parasites and bacterial infections. A barrier method can be used to reduce the risk of transmission.
Some people enjoy the taboo of analingus, others enjoy the intense intimacy of the act. For the recipient, oral stimulation of the highly sensitive area can be highly erotic, especially when paired with genital stimulation.
For most people, anal stimulation with fingers is the best place to start exploring anal play. Once you are totally comfortable with giving (and/or) receiving anal touch with fingers, more advanced practices such as rimming can be explored.
