The practice of an*l s*x has been around for centuries and today it is more common among heterosexuals than one might think. Many couples find it to be highly enjoyable, partly because the area near the rectum is a sensory-rich venue with loads of nerve endings close to the surface.
Blocking out one of the senses, such as sight, heightens sensitivity of the others to compensate. Plus, when you can’t see what will happen next, the anticipation can be pretty exciting.

But it can be one of the most effective ways for women to tune in to a s*xual experience because it helps turn off the parts of [their] brain associated with stress and anxiety. In fact, fantasizing is powerful enough to trigger orgasms in some women. In a study Beverly Whipple, PhD, co-author of The Science of climax along with her colleagues Gena Ogden, PhD, and Barry R. Komisaruk, PhD, monitored the blood pressure, heart rate, pupil diameters, and pain tolerance of 10 women who claimed they could think their way to climax. As the subjects fantasized in a lab, seven exhibited the exact physical responses caused by hands-on stimulation.

This is s*x without penetration, and it can be incredibly hot. In fact, many women find that because the focus of the friction is on the cli**ris, they can climax quicker and more often through outercourse than intercourse. How-to: Apply a water-based lubricant liberally to the head and shaft of the man-hood and the labia, cli**ris, pubic hair. In one popular version, the woman lies on her back and keeps her legs together, spreading her well-lubed inner thighs just enough for her partner, on top, to slide his erect man-hood between them and her lips. She can now squeeze her lips to tighten her grip on his man-hood as he thrusts and stimulates her cli**ris with his moving shaft. From this position, try various circular motions, squeezes, pelvic lifts, and grinding thrusts to create a good massage for the cli**ris and head of the man-hood.
