While we tend to attribute squirting — or the ejaculation of fluid from the vulva — with vaginal sex, it can absolutely happen during anal sex, too. In fact, squirting from anal is pretty similar to any other kind of squirting experience — it just takes some practice. To help you, here’s a list of tips for you and/or partner(s) to learn how to squirt from anal, along with ways to intensity the experience.

How does squirting from anal work?‍

Squirting from anal sex is pretty similar to any other kind of squirting experience. The membrane between the rectum and vaginal canal is quite thin, and the vaginal canal collapses like the sleeve of a shirt when there’s nothing inside, so the G-spot is easy to access from anal penetration. Some people even prefer G-spot stimulation from anal play because that extra tissue can make be more enjoyable for people who find direct stimulation too intense. 

Going for G-spot stimulation from anal sex isn’t necessarily for anal beginners. You’re going to want to be comfortable enough to play around with different angles and different intensities, so it’s a good idea to have a general comfort with anal penetration and to know what is and isn’t going to work for you. Like all anal play, lube is essential, especially if you’re aiming for vigorous stimulation. 

What to know before trying to squirt from anal sex

Safety is key.

It’s important to know how to best prepare for anal play, so that you can avoid infection, injury, and discomfort. When you’re doing both anal and vaginal play, avoid cross-contamination by making sure you’re not going back and forth at all — that means fingers, mouths, toys, penises. Anything that goes in or around the anal area must be cleaned with soap and water before vaginal contact. Gloves, dental dams, and condoms (including internal condoms) can also help protect you. Just be sure to swap out barriers when moving from anal to vaginal contact. 

Have plenty of lube on hand. 

Lubrication is an essential tool to limit pain and infection during anal sex. Unlike the vagina, the anal canal does not self-lubricate, so use plenty of water or silone-based lube. If you choose to lubricate with saliva, it’s important to know the risks. Given that the mouth is full of bacteria, saliva as a lubricant presents more risk of infection and contracting STIs (i.e., oral herpes, gonorrhea). It also dries quickly and lacks a smooth consistency, so it’s best to stick with store-bought lubricant to avoid friction.

Pressure is the enemy of pleasure. 

While it’s wonderful to be up for sexual experimentation and trying new things can be a lot of fun, sometimes setting a specific goal, like squirting from anal sex, can create a lot of pressure. It might sound cliché, but if we become too goal-oriented in our sex and play, we miss a lot of beautiful things along the way. 

If you’re not already squirting during sex it doesn’t mean that you’re missing out on some kind of better orgasm that other people are having, by the way. Plenty of squirters report that the orgasms aren’t any more intense or pleasurable than other kinds of orgasms, and some even report that they’re less pleasurable.  

It’s not necessarily for anal beginners. 

Going for G-spot stimulation from anal sex isn’t necessarily for anal beginners. You’re going to want to be comfortable enough to play around with different angles and different intensities, so it’s a good idea to have a general comfort with anal penetration and to know what is and isn’t going to work for you. Like all anal play, lube is essential, especially if you’re aiming for vigorous stimulation. ‍

Squirting and orgasming aren’t the same. 

Also of note is that ejaculation and orgasm are separate processes for people with all genital configurations. However, in people with vulvas, it’s even more common for the ejaculation or squirting to come before orgasm, sometimes well before. That means you don’t necessarily want to stop stimulation when you see an ejaculation — rather, it’s important to check in and see what feels good. ‍

What can intensify squirting from anal?‍

The overall sensitivity of the anal area can ramp up the experience of squirting from anal sex. There are tons of nerve-endings that can experience pleasure and for some people, the overall higher level of intensity can help increase the likelihood of squirting. Here are a few ways you can intensify squirting from anal. 

Start with a lot of foreplay. 

To build up arousal, it’s important to spend plenty of time engaging in foreplay. In fact, the more time, the better. There are so many ways to experience foreplay — including making out, dirty talking, and light caressing — and it looks different for everyone. Foreplay can help you and your partner ease into the experience, relax, and prepare emotionally and physically for what’s to come. While foreplay is commonly perceived as a precursor to sex, it can often become the best part of the experience — the main course, if you will.

Pay attention to the whole CUV.

It’s not just the G-spot area you’ll be hitting from anal penetration, but the whole clitourethrovaginal (CUV) complex — all the structures that are responsible for pleasure. With arousal, the internal clitoral complex swells along with the urethral sponge and skene's glands. All of these areas press into and against the walls of the vaginal canal, especially the anterior wall, and that’s the area most associated with squirting orgasms. 

If you’re trying this on a partner, try inserting one or two fingers into the rectum and curving them upward towards the front of the body. While your fingers are just one to two knuckles deep, explore the area and different levels of pressure while in communication with your partner until you find the spots that feel best. 

Add in other forms of stimulation. 

Try to incorporate whatever kinds of stimulation usually feel good for you. If you’re used to using a vibrator for external stimulation during vaginal or anal penetration, make sure you’re doing that when you’re aiming for squirting. And just like other forms of G-spot play, an extreme curve can be helpful, whether that’s from a G-spot wand toy, curved fingers, or penile penetration that allows for a steep angle.

Practice, practice, practice. 

Your body learns how pleasure works over time and certain responses can become reinforced. So each time you squirt, it becomes more likely you’ll do so again. Both because the body gets used to that response, and because you’re more relaxed mentally and expecting it. Remember that learning a new skill or new response is a process, and try to enjoy that process at least as much as the potential end result.‍

The bottom line 

Squirting from anal sex can be a lot of fun, but it takes time to get the hang of it. There are various techniques that might help intensify the experience — including starting with plenty of foreplay, mixing in other forms of stimulation, and focusing on the whole CVU complex. Just remember to take it slow and communicate throughout the process, so that you and your partner can work together and find what feels best.
