Anal sex can be an exhilarating and pleasurable sexual experience.
It takes a lot of patience and practice.
Especially if it's your first time, and you have no idea what you're doing.
We want to know all the important knowledge, wisdom, and myth-busting facts you wish you had known about anal sex before you tried it for the first time.
Maybe you wish you had known that a popular anal sex myth, like that it always has to hurt, was total B.S.
Or that the process will be a little more complicated in real life than it often seems in porn, movies, shows, etc.
Or maybe you’d just want to save yourself from making some hilarious, embarrassing, and painful mistakes.
So tell us: What do you wish you'd known about anal sex before your first time trying it?
Share your answer in the comments and it might be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Health post.
We're looking to hear from everyone, no matter which end of the deed you've been on, because your first time doing butt stuff can be daunting and surprising and interesting.
Also, we're interested in any anal sex experiences — whether that included a penis, anal sex toy, strap-on and harness, whatever.
