marijuana anal sex

Weed has long had a special place in the bedroom, and for the first time, it’s possible to use a cannabis-based anal suppository for more relaxed and pleasurable butt play. This news may be a boon for people on various points of the sexual spectrum who may be open-minded but still hesitant about getting touched or penetrated back there. By taking things slow, I learned that anal sex doesn’t have to hurt. There can be some discomfort, but there can also be deep pleasure—the notion of using weed to help ease things sounds both helpful and intriguing.

Before Explore was on the market, Manta says she used a DIY approach to make suppositories, and coconut oil was a key ingredient. She welcomes this new product because it incorporates cannabis: “CBD slows down electrical signaling to muscles, causing relaxation, thereby allowing Explore to reduce discomfort without numbing or desensitizing the anal area or surrounding tissues. CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties can go a long way for the person being penetrated (both during and after).”
When asked if a finger or penis would feel pleasant vibes from Explore, Manta explained that since they don’t have mucus membranes, there would be little absorption. “The only thing you would notice is more ease with the muscles, and that your partner would probably be more receptive,” she explained.

Within 15 to 20 minutes of insertion, Explore’s desired effects will begin, according to Ashley Manta, a cannabis sexual health educator. Because Explore is taken in suppository form instead of being inhaled or taken orally, the dose is absorbed with higher bioavailability, meaning that your body will get to feel the effects quicker.
Anal sex should not hurt. If it hurts you are doing something wrong.
Explore stands out from other anal products because it doesn’t numb the area. Numbing the area can be dangerous during butt play, since your body needs to send your brain signals of pain in case there’s serious harm. Manta explained, “People think ‘anal sex is going to hurt, so I need to just get through it.” But anal isn’t supposed to be painful if you do it right. “Anal sex should not hurt. If it hurts you are doing something wrong. You can feel discomfort without pain, and Explore helps alleviate discomfort. Then you also get anal pleasure because of the effects of the THC.”
Sexual health and wellness company Foria gained popularity with Foria Pleasure, a cannabis-infused sexual lubricant for women meant to enhance sensations and induce longer, stronger, and even multiple orgasms. Foria’s new cannabis-based suppository is called Explore and designed for anal play; it releases 60mg of THC and 10mg of CBD after being inserted into the anus, thus allowing the surrounding muscles and pelvic region to relax. THC is short for tetrahydrocannabinol, the active ingredient in marijuana with psychoactive qualities that give users a buzz. CBD is short for Cannabidiol, the compound in cannabis with anti-inflammatory and analgesic qualities that doesn’t contribute to one’s buzz.
Explore is marketed as a gay-friendly product, but anal play can be fun for people of every sexual orientation. Manta said she’s tried bringing up butt exploration to male partners in the past and found that some thought it a fraught topic—even though butts shouldn’t be so taboo.

It’s worth noting that a 2015 study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine showed that more than a third of female respondents (36.3 percent) said they had tried anal sex. For men, the Telegraph reported that stimulating the walnut-sized gland known as the prostate or P-spot potentially leads to “mind-blowing, leg-shaking, eye-rolling, neighbour-panicking pleasure.” The article itself was a call for guys to lighten up and let go of the stigmas surrounding butt stuff.

So would I use Foria Explore again? Definitely. When I was using it, I was so turned on that I didn’t need to watch porn or use a vibrator to enhance the experience. I can’t say it will work for everyone, but in my experience, cannabis was indeed a rectum-relaxing aphrodisiac. That said, it’s hard to say for certain whether it was the Foria Explore that made anal play easier, or the whole shebang of mood lighting, FKA Twigs, meditation, and butt plug/lube preparation. I look forward to trying it during anal sex with my male partner, although if he wants to experience Foria, he’ll have to put it up his butt as well, as cannabis intimacy products don’t work on penises the same way they do on vaginas and anuses.

While we’re arguably more in control of and confident about our sexuality than ever, there’s still so much we don’t know about female arousal. So this month, we’re exploring everything you want and need to know about how women get turned on now. Check out more here.
While Foria’s aforementioned intimacy oil is a cannabis and coconut oil-based mist primarily for vaginal use, I had heard about (okay, and tested) the product’s efficacy for anal play. It was fun to try, but a spray is easier applied on the labia lips and vagina than the butthole (which is much smaller), so I wasn’t sure how much I got up there. A capsule seemed like the perfect solution. Foria claims to work by promoting relaxation and increasing blood flow, jumping off the cannabis plant’s long-standing reputation as an aphrodisiac.

Anal sex is not exactly known as the easiest or least daunting sexual activity — the anus isn’t self-lubricating, and the sphincter needs to be relaxed before you insert anything into it (which, again, isn’t always easy). So when I found out that Foria, the company behind those cannabis intimacy oils (a.k.a. “weed lube “), had a product available for your butt, I knew I needed it in mine. Honestly, I can’t imagine a better way to relax for anal sex than getting my actual anus high.

Also, I advise anyone interested in anal play to invest in a quality butt-plug and wear it prior to penetrative anal sex via penis or dildo (you can do this by yourself or with a partner). Not only does a butt-plug help warm up the rectum by relaxing the sphincter — which makes anal sex easier and more pleasurable — but you can wear it for pretty much as long as you want (15 minutes or all day). It’s a sexy little secret that feels both pleasurable and naughty.
I rubbed my clit and came, and then cleaned up properly (washed toys with warm water and antibacterial soap, and put sheets that may have been anointed with cannabis and butt gunk into the dirty laundry). I also scrubbed my hands and cleaned my butt properly (using the fabulous Tushy bidet).
My conclusion? Foria Explore is a magic capsule. But here’s the secret about magic: It requires intention, preparation, and follow-through to work. So if you’re in a legal state and into cannabis, absolutely try putting weed up your butt to make anal sex easier — just don’t forget to do butt sex right.

As cannabis is being used to treat pain and anal sex can be painful when not done properly, I was stoked to learn about Foria Explore, the cannabis and wellness company’s anal suppository. I’ve always been super turned on by anal, and while I’ve had luck with it in the past, at times it was too painful and I had to ask my partner to stop. A product that could not only add excitement (how awesome is weed for your butt?), but also potentially reduce pain, seemed like just what I needed to fulfill my anal desires.
