Posts about the Anal Only Lifestyle blog and community itself, rather than the concept of anal only.


Don’t Hesitate to Reach Out!

A major part of this blog is interaction with its visitors and readers, and while there is a large wealth of information already available for reading and learning from, I always encourage reaching out and asking questions or sharing your stories, or commenting on existing posts with additional information and context!

The more people send in content, the more we can stay actively posting on a regular schedule and helping everyone achieve the anal only lifestyle they deserve!

Anal Only April 2022

Craving something new? Why not go anal only for a whole month? Challenge yourself to Anal Only April.

Anal Only April has now officially begun! Read through the earlier post for the full details, but in essence, it’s a challenge for you and any partners you may have to only have anal sex for the entire month, as an opportunity to explore the anal only lifestyle without a long-term up-front commitment.

If being anal only intrigues you, here’s your chance to try it for yourself. If you’re already anal only, take it as a month of celebration and as much anal sex, masturbation and butt plugging as you can manage, or an opportunity to explore a new twist on the anal only lifestyle that you’ve been fantasizing about or are curious to try. In the past, some long-term anal only women have made Anal Only April a “double anal only” month!

As always, if you plan to participate, let us know and share your experiences and questions throughout the month and beyond. After all, most people who try going anal only for a month or two at first find that they don’t ever want to go back to vaginal by the time their trial period is over!

Anal Only April 2022 is Coming Soon!

Craving something new? Why not go anal only for a whole month? Challenge yourself to Anal Only April.

Have you been curious about going anal only but haven’t had the push to actually try it for yourself? Well, now is the perfect opportunity. Anal Only April is one of several challenge months where we encourage people interested in the anal only lifestyle to make a month-long commitment and try out pure anal for themselves.

The rules of Anal Only April are simple: starting April 1st, whether on your own or with your significant other, stop all vaginal penetration for sex and masturbation, and replace it with anal instead.

Clitoral stimulation is optional. If you would like to go for a more advanced form of anal only, try doing it without touching your clit and only orgasming through anal. If you need your clit in order to enjoy anal, combine it with anal, but only rub your clit while also masturbating anally.

Oral sex is still allowed and encouraged, especially blowjobs and rimming. Cunnilingus is optional—some choose to exclude it, others still include it but don’t engage in any vaginal penetration as part of it.

Try your best to stick with anal only for the whole month—it’s a long enough period of time that while you might struggle a little bit with it at first, whether adjusting to the frequency of anal sex, or dealing with lingering cravings for vaginal sex or clitoral stimulation, by the end of a month most people figure out what being anal only is really like, and a majority of people who enjoyed their month trial either choose to stay anal only and not go back to vaginal, or return to it again later after a break.

If you’re already anal only, don’t worry—you can still enjoy Anal Only April yourself. Challenge yourself to have anal sex every day of the month, or to start wearing a butt plug or masturbate anally every day, or to experiment with clitoral denial and anal only orgasms if you aren’t already, or to start doing ass to mouth regularly, or to train your ass with bigger toys to be able to do anal fisting or double anal. The possibilities are endless for exploring new things as part of the anal only lifestyle. If you already enjoy double anal, consider trying making April a double anal only month—whether with two partners every time, or with a partner and a dildo, or two dildos.

Over the next week, get your plans in order, get your partner (if any) on board, and if you haven’t had anal sex yet or for a while, start working on training so that by the time Anal Only April begins, you’re ready to dive in!

If you decide to take part, let us know! Share your plans, ask any questions, and keep us updated as you start exploring the anal only lifestyle!

Go Anal Only This Valentine’s Day!

This Valentine’s Day, make it extra special and ask your partner to commit to trying the anal only lifestyle together.

Now, if they’re completely new to anal, you won’t want to dive right into anal sex, but gradual (and consensual!) introduction of anal play into your sex life with a long term goal of shifting towards anal only. If you both already enjoy anal regularly, asking to try going straight to anal only may be appropriate.

It doesn’t have to be a long term commitment just yet—try it for a month and see how things go! Most people who make it through a month of anal only choose to stay that way long term and rarely want to go back to vaginal.

No Pussy November 2021!

It’s here! A month of pure anal only sex and your opportunity to challenge yourself to see what it’s all about or to try new things related to the anal only lifestyle.

After nine years in a row, No Pussy November still remains our flagship month each year to celebrate anal sex, the anal only lifestyle, and to encourage new people who aren’t yet anal only to challenge themselves to trying it for a solid month and seeing what it’s like.

If you’re new to the anal only lifestyle and you want to give it a try, this is a great time and way to do it! Talk with your partner now in advance of November and make sure you’re both on board with the idea, or if you’re single and want to try it with toys, get yourself to the point where you’re comfortable with anal masturbation on a regular basis—at least 3 to 5 times a week, if not every day.

If you’re already anal only, there are plenty of other things that you can try as a No Pussy November challenge this year!

  • If you still use clitoral stimulation, you can challenge yourself to stop and focus purely on anal pleasure and anal orgasms. The more you go without your clit and rely on anal only to orgasm, the easier anal orgasms get!
  • If you aren’t wearing a butt plug regularly, you can challenge yourself to wear one at some increased interval, or to spend the entire month plugged as often as possible. If you want to reach the latter goal but aren’t quite there yet, you could work yourself up to that point over the course of the month.
  • You can challenge yourself to make ass to mouth a regular part of your sex life, normalizing it by doing it every time you have sex this November.
  • You can start to introduce double anal to your sex life, either through play with two dildos, a partner and a dildo, or two partners.

Along the lines of that latter idea, for those who are particularly interested or experienced with double anal, we’re continuing to encourage an official advanced challenge: Double Anal Only November, where those who want to or are able to masturbate regularly with two dildos in their ass or have double anal sex regularly spend the entire month only having double anal sex every time they have sex. Naturally, this is going to be somewhat limited to people who have multiple partners who want to have double anal with them, but you can also participate by always using a toy along with their partner to achieve double anal, or by masturbating with a minimum of two toys in your ass at a time.

What are your plans? Let us know!

No Pussy November 2021 is Only a Week Away!

We’re getting closer to the best time of the year again—after eight years in a row, No Pussy November still remains our flagship month each year to celebrate anal sex, the anal only lifestyle, and to encourage new people who aren’t yet anal only to challenge themselves to trying it for a solid month and seeing what it’s like.

Are You Participating in No Pussy November?

This November, experience a month of exclusive anal sex. Join us for the ninth annual No Pussy November.

It’s nearly the best time of the year again—after nine years in a row, No Pussy November still remains our flagship month each year to celebrate anal sex, the anal only lifestyle, and to encourage new people who aren’t yet anal only to challenge themselves to trying it for a solid month and seeing what it’s like.

Anal Only New Year 2021

Happy new year, and with it, all sorts of new opportunities for anal only fun! It’s time to make your anal only new year’s resolutions and share them with the world to help inspire others.

Some ideas include:

  • If you aren’t already anal only, challenge yourself to go anal only this year. Starting out with a month or two of anal only to ease into the lifestyle and see if it’s for you is a good way to begin, and then if it works well for you, just keep going.
  • If you’re anal mostly, consider taking the final step and giving up vaginal sex for good.
  • If you’re anal only but still use clit stimulation and would like to switch to pure anal only, that’s an excellent 2021 goal and could be coupled with learning to orgasm from anal sex if you can’t already.
  • If you enjoy stretching and want to go larger, consider setting a new goal with some bigger toys or even better, start doing double anal with two toys or two partners more often. If you already enjoy double anal and find single anal less enjoyable compared to the intensity of double anal, consider going double anal only in 2021 and move past single anal for good.
  • If you’re happy with your anal only lifestyle and want to help others experience the same, consider being more outspoken about the lifestyle to friends and others and encourage them to try it for themselves. A goal of introducing others to anal only is an excellent way to have a rewarding experience for yourself while growing the lifestyle at the same time.

There are many more great options to try, and this is far from an exhaustive list. Leave a comment on this post or submit a message detailing your anal only goals and resolutions for 2021.

Anal Only Lifestyle 2020 Roundup

What a year it has been! I think we can all be glad when 2020 is behind us, but despite all the tragedy and mayhem throughout the year, it’s been a year of positive change within the Anal Only Lifestyle community.

One of our big additions this year was the publication of our Guide to Anal Sex and the Anal Only Lifestyle as a Kindle ebook. Many of you have purchased copies, which helps support this community, and we hope to have print copies available as well in the near future.

Our Patreon is another way that you can support this community, and it has continued to remain active with new members joining. If you’d like to help us out, please join.

Our community continues to slowly grow, with over 3,000 members on each the Anal Only Lifestyle forum and our Discord server. The /r/analonlylifestyle subreddit has nearly 10,000 members. This blog gets between 600 and 800 unique visitors per day, many visiting directly while others find it through various Google searches.

Posting on our Bdsmlr porn blog (NSFW) resumed in full on a schedule similar to when it was active on Tumblr. If you haven’t checked it out recently, be sure to follow us! Bdsmlr is still a much smaller community than Tumblr was, so we only have 6,500 followers there, but there’s a growing anal only presence on the platform and it could use even more people posting about and advocating for the anal only lifestyle if you aren’t already active there.

Anal Only April and No Pussy November both had quite a few participants this year, with many newcomers to the anal only lifestyle trying it out for the first time, and more than a few experienced anal only women trying other challenges, including a month of double anal sex only, several opting to stay double anal only going forward as a result. Very exciting to see the enthusiasm around both, and hope to have even more participation in challenges going forward.

The COVID-19 pandemic both interfered with and contributed to some of the above with regard to participation in challenges, and just provided some people more opportunities to do more anal or go anal only in their existing relationships. Stuck in lockdown, many couples had a lot of time and boredom on their hands and turned to anal sex, or exploring the anal only lifestyle together, and many reported deciding to stay anal only after an intensive introduction to it.

As for the new year, the plan is to continue as we have been, but with even more. Additions are underway for the Guide, and once complete, a second edition with a print edition will be published. Watch for new and additional monthly challenge schedules with routines scheduled out for various goals: anal training, clit denial, long term plug wear, anal orgasm, double anal, and more. And, with any luck, we’ll also get a store with anal only merchandise finally off the ground in 2021. Above all else, though, we continue to strive to bring more people into the anal only lifestyle and moving the world past vaginal sex to pure anal.

How has 2020 been for you with regards to the anal only lifestyle?

No Pussy November 2020 is Over!

After a solid month of anal only and double anal fun for the many people who took part this year, No Pussy November 2020 has reached its end. Thank you to all who participated, it’s been great talking with and hearing from all of you, and I hope that everyone who took part will be continuing to stay anal only going forward.

No Pussy November serves as an introductory month to challenge yourself to try the anal only lifestyle for at least 30 days, but the intent is not to go back to vaginal afterwards—it’s to see how much better anal only can be for you, and to stay anal only if you enjoyed your time during the first month. So, if you did enjoy it, seriously consider staying anal only.

Similarly, if you did not have a chance to participate in No Pussy November this time around, don’t worry—it’s a fun group challenge, but it’s far from the only chance to go anal only. You can do that any time of the year, following the same general principles of No Pussy November, spending at least a month if not longer for your initial commitment to trying anal only, working out any issues during that time, and sticking with it long term if it went well during the trial.

Finally, don’t forget to continue sharing your stories and progress, how No Pussy November went for you, and whether you’re going to be continuing with anal only, double anal only, clit denial, or any other challenges you gave yourself this past month.
