Rimming: know everything about this practice still taboo

Rimming is poorly known and often taboo oral sex practice. It nevertheless gives intense sensations, thanks to the numerous nerve endings present in the zone. Discover our tips to discover how to pleasure by stimulating the anus and how to do a rim job.

What is rimming?

Rimming is an oral sex practice that involves stimulating the partner’s anus with the tongue. The oral sex is as much present in men as in women, in heterosexual couples as homosexuals. Rimming is also known as “rose leaf”, especially in texts that date back to ancient times.

Rimming can be a prelude to sodomy since it lubricates the anal area with saliva or lubricant. Like all anal practices, the rim requires indeed to lubricate the area upstream, so that caresses are easier. Rimming can be performed externally (kissing and caressing with the mouth and tongue) and internally (penetration with the tongue).

The anus, a primary erogenous zone

It is not always known, but the anus is part, as well as sexual organs like the clitoris or the penis, erogenous zones. If these last two are called “primary”, that is to say, which are highly sensitive, the anus is considered secondary. Thus, caresses kisses or suctions on it provide intense pleasure.

It is generally considered that the secondary erogenous zones, of which the anus is a part, lead less systematically to orgasm when they are stimulated alone. This is a generality and does not apply to everyone. It is therefore quite possible to enjoy through stimulation of the anus, after a rim job or sodomy, for example.

Similarly, multiple stimulation of different secondary erogenous zones can also easily lead to orgasm, because of the correlation of sensations.

Differentiate the inner and outer area of the anus

The external anal area corresponds to the periphery of the entrance of the anus, while the internal zone is the inside of the anus, which can be penetrated. These two areas contain many blood vessels. Likewise, they also have a lot of nerve endings, which makes them highly sensitive places. We can compare the anus to a clitoris, in terms of sensitivity. Rimming is also practice close to cunnilingus, and the techniques of one may be suitable for the other.

Internally, the nerves present in the anus accurately capture the sensations of tension, which is why sodomy and back and forth movements are particularly appreciated. The outer zone, it, more precisely captures the sensations of friction. Thus, anus offers a variety of sensations and feelings relatively wide.

How to do rimming?

Rimming allows both to stimulate the external and internal area of it. It’s ideal is to start by licking the edges of the hole before wanting to penetrate the anus with your tongue. Indeed, it is necessary that the person is sufficiently relaxed and excited so that the penetration is done quickly.

You can vary the forms of caresses: it is possible to lick the entry of the anus from top to bottom, to titillate with your tongue, or to kiss the outside area with her/his lips. Similarly, you can switch between digital or oral penetration and petting with your tongue. The combination of both stimulates both the external and internal areas.

Some tips and precautions

rimming

The first thing to consider in an anal practice is lubrication. Indeed, unlike the vulva or penis, the anus does not produce lubricating fluid, and the area is naturally dry even if the person is excited. It is therefore recommended to use a lubricant all over the area before starting any practice.

Finally, we must not forget that the anus is an area that can be a carrier of germs, because of its proximity to the digestive system. Thus, it is necessary to follow specific rules of hygiene to avoid the transmission of bacteria from the anus to the vulva, for example, and clean the area between each practice.
