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


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!

Only a Few Weeks Until No Pussy November 2020!

Message: Sending New Messages

Rhys: First up, thanks for the great work! I drop by most days (and practice what you preach..)
I just wanted to let you know that when viewed on a smartphone there is no obvious way to send a new message other than commenting on a post.
If you disagree I’ll be happy to send you a screenshot.
This may explain why you don’t get much reader feedback?
Perhaps you could engineer a more prominent button for messages?
Otherwise, good luck with it!

There’s actually a row of links under the blog title at the top of each page, which includes an “Ask” link. It could perhaps be renamed or made more prominent with a color.

Questions and Stories Always Welcome & Encouraged

Hello to all the many readers of this blog—for the past 3 months, we’ve been consistently around 600 people visiting the blog each day, and I’m grateful to all of you for being interested in checking in regularly and viewing the content I write, respond to, and curate multiple times a week. This blog is a labor of love, and it’s been active since early 2013.

While we do get messages and comments from readers from time to time, there are clearly many of you out there who are not reaching out as you read the blog. But I’d like to see that change—I’d like to hear from all of you about your anal and AO stories, experiences, dreams, goals, concerns, and questions. Don’t be shy—send a message! It can be anonymous if you want.

Consistently, readers of this blog have said that hearing other people’s experiences is the most interesting content here and what they want to hear most, so don’t think that your story is uninteresting—it’s a real life experience, and that’s what we all want to hear. People who are curious about going anal only but haven’t done so yet want to hear from other people who have about what it’s like, and those experiences are more often than not what get them to try it too.

And if you’d like to help support the blog in other ways, you can always become a Patron or buy the eBook version of our Guide to Anal Sex and the Anal Only Lifestyle!

Don’t Forget: Our Guide is an Ebook

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.
