I’m a straight male, but I’ve been thinking a lot lately about experimenting with men (and have done so a tiny bit, but that’s for a different post). Right now, I’m really interested in experimenting with anal toys. I was looking for advice more generally, but also some advice related to my first attempt two nights ago. I bought a bunch of toys, and two nights ago a started with a set of butt plugs. I read up a bit, used lots of lube, and tried not to move faster than I should/do anything that felt painful. And I pretty much had no pain at all. I worked my way up to kind of a medium sized one, and in general felt quite comfortable. (As an aside, I also really liked it, peaking my interest in further play.) But even though I felt no pain during, my asshole was super swollen the next day and hurt a bit . Theres even still some discomfort this morning, the second day after. Which surprised me given that I didn’t feel like I pushed myself that hard. I don’t know if i had them in too long on my first attempt (maybe over an hour total) or if it has to do with a history of hemorrhoids (though I hadn’t had any at the time or in a while). Does anyone have any advice? I have a fantasy of working up toward much bigger toys, but I want to do it safely obviously. Thanks!
