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.

What Sort of Content Do You Want to See?

This has been somewhat of a recurring theme from time to time, but there has been little response in the past, so the question will continue to be asked.

This blog consistently averages between 600 and 900 unique visitors per day, with about ⅔ of that coming from search engine traffic as people search for related topics and end up directly on articles and posts rather than visiting the site or browsing the homepage for new posts. Much of the remaining ⅓ are visiting the homepage, however, which means there are 200 – 300 of you checking for new posts regularly. Your feedback is desired.

The schedule this blog has fallen into is posting every other day, with each Sunday being an original article and the rest of the week featuring other articles, posts, discussions, and messages from readers. After all these years, it can be challenging to write new original articles, however, and some readers have expressed displeasure at the topics of some articles being unrealistic or “fetish fuel”, perceiving them as not being meant to be taken seriously or pushing a manipulative viewpoint.

So, what sort of articles would you like to read? Are there topics you want more written about? Guest articles? (Any volunteers to write any?) Other perspectives on anal and the anal only lifestyle? Or would people rather see more of a focus on what is shared the rest of the week and only have original articles from time to time as a good idea arises rather than being on a fixed weekly schedule?

Happy Anal Only Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving in the United States, and while it’s not a holiday celebrated everywhere in the world, it can still be a nice time for us all to reflect on the positives of life and what we’re thankful for. Within the anal only lifestyle, there is a lot to enjoy and be thankful about, and if you have anything that you’d like to share, leave a comment on this post!

As for myself, I’m thankful for such a diverse, enthusiastic and supportive community of people that come together out of a mutual love for anal sex and the anal only lifestyle and help each other out as best as we all can, encouraging, sharing, and understanding each other. Let’s keep that up, and always make sure to stay true to our origins as a place that’s open and welcome to everyone who is interested in anal sex or going anal only and providing the space for people to feel comfortable talking about those preferences and desires.

Halfway Through No Pussy November 2020!

We’re now officially halfway through No Pussy November 2020, but if you haven’t gotten started yet, there’s still time! Commit to a month of only anal sex instead of vaginal starting now and you can experience what the anal only lifestyle is really like and see if it’s for you.

If you have been taking part, don’t forget to send us a message and share how it’s been going, what your experience has been like so far, and whether you think you’re going to keep going with anal only once the month is over!

No Pussy November 2020

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 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.

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 introducing an official advanced challenge this year: 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!
