This book feels like one of the great life-hacks of health and wellness. That's all I got. Its techniques can apply as life lessons or keys to general wellness, mindfulness, awareness of body, yada yada yada. But the fact that it hones in on the most fearful, taboo part with a casual audacity is extraordinary. So, dive right in, learn plenty, and find that inner peace. Wonderfully written with TONS of resources about non-sexual anal health and non-sexual wellness. Not just a buttbook, but a hand ...more

Recommends it for: any person who wants to be nicer to an anus
Wow! This book is so great!

First of all, as the title implies, this book is NOT just about anal intercourse or other forms of anal sex. It is about anal pleasure and health. Most of us only think of our anuses when there is a problem, but this book teaches folks how to care for their anuses in order to cure and prevent problems.

This book is for you if

you already have anal problems

you want to make sure you don't develop anal problems

you are interested in pleasuring your own anus

you are interested

I think Billy from chapter four says it best: "Since I've started paying attention to my anus, I've developed a 'buddy, buddy' feeling about it. It's the last part of my body I've gotten to know. My connection with myself is now more complete."

This is so good! I learned a lot about my butthole, would recommend the book to everyone with some caveats (i.e., it is quite cisnormative, people with penises and testicles are described with male pronouns and vice versa). It starts with a long, interesting and useful section about anal health and awareness and is worth the read for this part alone, even if you're not interested in the 'anal pleasure' part of the title. But that part is great, too. I have never really enjoyed anal penetration a ...more

Extremely practical guidance about a topic that is sadly so taboo. Moris' approach is so plain-spoken and direct, it is hard to imagine a better foil to those irrational misgivings so many have about assholes.

A great guide and definitely a book I will return to in the future when I'm not on a bike tour and can more actively participate with the exercises.

If you want to have anal sex you should read this book. Good advice without making the entire idea a turn off.
