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


We’re Halfway Through Anal Only April 2020

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

We’re now halfway through Anal Only April, our annual event encouraging people to try going anal only for a whole month to experience what it’s really like to do just anal long-term and discover the benefits of doing so for them.

If you are just discovering this now, or haven’t have a chance to try it yet, it’s not too late to get started! You can either plan on taking part in the next two weeks until the end of April, or you can just get started on a full month right now!

If you have been taking part, don’t forget to check in and let us know how things are going. Updates, questions, and requests for advice are all always welcome from anyone and everyone.

Anal Only April 2020

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

First announced a few weeks ago, 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. At least one long-term anal only woman is making this 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!

Temporarily Reverting to Every Other Day Schedule

Due to not having enough content to post daily, and scheduling challenges, we’re temporarily reverting to posting every other day again. Hopefully we’ll be able to resume daily posting again at a later time if the availability of relevant content to share picks up again.

Anal Only April 2020 is Coming Soon!

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

Yes, it’s that time of the year again! If you’ve been looking for an excuse to try going anal only for yourself, or to bring up the idea with a partner, here’s your chance.

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!

Checking in on Anal Only 2020

Now that we’re several months into the new year and new decade, it’s time to check in and see how things are going with everyone! If you’ve made this commitment, whether you’ve stuck with it, had struggles, or gone on and off, let us know how things have gone!

If this is your first time hearing about Anal Only 2020, or if you haven’t started yet but would like to take part, do it! You can go anal only at any time, and don’t let getting a later start keep you from going for it!

Though many haven’t been sharing publicly, many women and couples have been taking part in Anal Only 2020, including several who decided to stop using their pussy in December or January, and often their clit as well, and are currently planning to stay that way for the entire year, with the goal for many to keep going indefinitely if they make it through the year. One woman who has already been anal only for several years made her No Pussy November challenge last year to go double anal only, then enjoyed it so much that she stayed that way to the end of the year, and then made it her 2020 challenge to stay double anal only through this year and beyond—that means she never has less than two guys in her ass at the same time! Double anal is a part of other women’s goals as well, some to start doing it for the first time, and others to do it more often.

Whatever your experience, goals or interest, we’d like to hear about it, so please share!

Anal Only Valentine’s Day 2020

Valentine’s Day is here, and whether you’ve been planning to give the gift of anal only this year, or if you need a last minute gift idea and are coming up blank, this is your opportunity.

Going anal only can not only be a fun and exciting change for you and your partner, it can be far more pleasurable than vaginal, and brings your relationship closer together and with greater intimacy than vaginal can provide.

Start with a month long challenge, so you can work out any issues you come across during the initial adjustment period and still have a few weeks to just enjoy the benefits of pure anal, and then if you found, as many do, that you don’t actually miss vaginal sex and prefer being anal only, just keep going with it after the month is over.

Anal Only Valentine’s Day is Coming Soon!

As we enter February, Valentine’s Day is only two weeks away. If you and your partner love anal sex and your partner would consider or is eager to try going anal only, this is a great opportunity for a gift of pure anal pleasure and exploring the anal only lifestyle together.

Start thinking about it and making plans, and on February 14, surprise them with the gift of anal only! It’s common to start with a month long challenge and if that goes well, keep trying for even more from there.

Our Guide is an Ebook Now!

If you’ve followed us for a while, you’re probably familiar with our Guide to Anal Sex and the Anal Only Lifestyle, which has been a part of this website for the past year since moving off Tumblr.

It’s always going to be a freely available resource as part of this blog for those who want to learn more about anal sex and the anal only lifestyle, but I’m happy to announce that you can also purchase it in an ebook format through Amazon as well, if that’s how you prefer to do your reading!

It can be a good resource if you’re just getting started, and it can make a good gift for friends who might be interested in anal or going anal only. Either way, it helps support this blog and the greater anal only community.

And, if you’re looking for another way to support the anal only community, consider becoming a Patron!

Anal Only 2020

As we posted about several weeks ago, the near year is upon us, and the traditional period of change and new life goals is amplified this year by the fact that it’s also the beginning of a new decade. As such, we’re suggesting a new challenge for those who are interested in the anal only lifestyle but haven’t yet committed to it: go for it.

Stop waiting and stop making excuses. You want this, so what are you waiting for? You only live once, and you should pursue what you want. Make the decision to be anal only going forward. Whether that means only masturbating anally because you don’t have a partner to have anal sex with you yet, telling new partners that you only do anal once it’s time to start having sex, or telling your existing partner that you want to go anal only and working together to make that transition, do whatever it takes to strive for your goal.

If you’re already anal only, think about your long term goals and how to make the anal only lifestyle a permanent part of your life and deepen your commitment to it, whether that be by moving away from clitoral stimulation and towards pure anal pleasure and orgasms, by going off artificial birth control because you’re fully committed to the natural birth control of anal only, or advancing your anal skills to some new goal—long term butt plug wear, larger anal toys, or working towards double anal sex.

Whatever your goal, make it happen!

If you’d like to help support the Anal Only Lifestyle community going forward, consider contributing to our Patreon. It helps us fund our hosting and domain names, and allows us to continue making original content and growing the community so that more people can be exposed to the pleasures of the anal only lifestyle and try it for themselves. Together, we can help create an anal only world!

2019 Anal Only Lifestyle Roundup

Read our previous roundup for 2018 here.

Following Tumblr’s porn ban in late 2018, the future of the Anal Only Lifestyle community was somewhat up in the air and unknown at the start of this year. Fortunately, things have settled into their new routine and we have have continued nearly as before even without Tumblr.

This blog, as you no doubt know, has continued to exist off Tumblr as a standalone blog and is actually posting more consistently now than before, and still gets reader interaction and hundreds of daily users reading the new posts and browsing the archives. The loss of the Tumblr community has impacted the reader interaction to some extent, because replies and messages were so ingrained into the Tumblr ecosystem, so we’re still trying to get more readers to send messages and write comments (seriously, if you have anything to say or ask, please feel free!) but it’s gone rather well considering the major platform shift. We also created a comprehensive Guide to Anal Sex and the Anal Only Lifestyle as part of the blog, which has extensive resources on how to prepare for and enjoy anal sex, what the anal only lifestyle is, reasons why anal sex and going anal only is better than including vaginal sex in your sex life, and how to go anal only, etc. Be sure to check it out!

The Anal Only Lifestyle forum continues to exist as it always has, with slow but continuing conversation. With over 10,000 posts in its archives, many people end up reading through old posts rather than starting new conversations, but it can still be a great way to share your experiences and talk with others who have similar interests. If you haven’t already, please consider registering and introducing yourself and adding your opinions to some of the many topics there.

Our subreddit, /r/analonlylifestyle, has quite a bit of activity on it of late as well, some of which gets featured here, but you should go check it out and join if you’re a Reddit user.

The major hub of community activity is the Anal Only Lifestyle Discord server, which allows for realtime chat. With over 2,000 members, you can easily find people to talk to most of the time in here, and there are dozens of regulars that hang out daily. Be sure to check it out if you haven’t, or stop back in and say hi if you’ve been away for a while.

We’ve been gradually shifting our porn blogs off Tumblr and onto Bdsmlr, which has been improving significantly over the past year. For links, check out our Anal Only Porn Blogs page, which lists both ours and other anal only-themed porn blogs and where they’ve moved to.

And finally, we also launched a Patreon page for the Anal Only Lifestyle this year, which helps to support not only our hosting costs but all the time spent managing and producing content for everyone. If you enjoy this community and the content that comes out of it, please consider supporting us on Patreon.

So, what’s next? In 2020, we’re planning to return to daily posting on this blog, rather than every other day. But that means we also need your help! Please share all your questions, stories, comments, concerns and more. If you come across good anal articles or posts online, be sure to share them too. Posting daily requires a lot of content, and the more that you, our readers, share with us, the more we can post for everyone to enjoy reading. Consistently, people have said that their favorite part of the blog is reading about other people’s experiences and goals, so don’t hesitate to share yours.

We will be continuing our twice annual anal only challenge months, Anal Only April and No Pussy November, as well as hosting a few more special challenges from time to time. And, of course, we’re encouraging people to make the commitment just beyond a month and go anal only for 2020—and beyond, into the new decade for a pure anal only future moving forward.

The anal only porn blogs on Bdsmlr will be continuing to come back online and getting more active, with frequent posting schedules and in some cases the old archives from Tumblr being re-queued for new enjoyment.

As for other changes and improvements, we’d like to hear from you. What would you like to see?
