Giving a rim job or rimming is the act of using your tongue on your partner’s anal region to pleasure them. It is a practice that is becoming popular. Chances of orgasm are high since there are many nerve endings on the anus.

More people are thinking of introducing rimming to their sexual relationships. If you fit into this category, there are several things that you need to know:

Always get consent from your partner

Rimming is not something that should be introduced spontaneously. Some people are uncomfortable with butt stuff while others like to get to clean themselves properly before they have someone going down that tunnel.

Your partner probably has a friend who talks about rim jobs or has read online articles about it, so it is already in their mind. Discussing it should not be that hard.

There is no bad taste

Several doctors are on record saying that the anus tastes similar to other parts of the genitalia when it is cleaned well. There is no reason why you should forego rimming if you and your partner are already practicing cunnilingus.

You might not like it the first time

There is a popular joke that sex is like riding a bike. This could not be truer in this instance. You will be nervous, and this might ruin the experience for you.

Many people who did not enjoy rimming the first time have gone on to enjoy the experience after trying it a second time.

Enema: An extra cleaning procedure

Some people are convinced that the anus can never be clean enough for them to try rimming. Your fears are perfectly reasonable if you belong to this group of people.

Fortunately, there is a procedure known as enema that can help with this. It is a procedure in which gas or liquid is injected into the rectum to remove the contents already there. It is typically done when doctors want to administer drugs through the rectum or during x-ray imaging.

Enema kits can be bought online as well as pharmacies.

You can get STDs and HIV through Rimming

Protection is just as crucial when it comes to giving rim jobs. This is because you are at risk of contracting something deadly whether you are in a monogamous or nonmonogamous relationship.

Dental dams will help you protect yourself. They are made of latex or polyurethane material which keeps your mouth from coming into direct contact with genitalia.


Introducing rim jobs in the bedroom can be a fantastic way of spicing things up in the bedroom. However, make sure you stick to the above rules to enhance the experience.
