Double Penetration, Double The Fun?

This is one of those acts in the litany of sexual terms that is (thankfully) descriptive and usefully descriptive. Double penetration is exactly what it sounds like. And though it may be "all the rage", it's certainly not for everyone -- not even if you think that's what would drive your lover wild.

When you learn about double penetration, you should walk away with one question only: do I really love it? If so, go forth and penetrate - er, prosper. If not, we've got some creative hacks for you anyway.

What It Is

Double Penetration or "DP", as it's more commonly referred to and tagged in the world of porn, means the act of penetrating a woman both vaginally and anally. Now, this could mean with two partners at the same time or it has also come to mean penetrating a woman vaginally or anally with a partner and a dildo.

And some partners will take double penetration way more literally (yes, more than it already is) to mean the penetrating of a woman, either vaginally or anally, with two partners or a partner and a toy in the same spot.

So, lesson one? Double penetration is never quite what you think. It could mean different things to different people so... make sure you clarify before you get started.

Two Bird, One Stone

Assuming that the idea of being sufficiently stretched and stuffed to the brim is your idea of a truly satisfying sensation (and the idea of being with two partners at once is an even bigger turn-on), double penetration causes some, shall we say, logistical problems. It's definitely easier when you do it with one partner and a toy or only with a toy. This is a good way to practice and see if the feeling is right for you.

The first step is assign each person their spot. Chances are, you won't find two men with exactly the same girth, let alone the ideal size for you. No matter. Just remember that the vagina is way more forgiving and built to be stretched to a greater degree than the rectum. So whoever has the bigger girth gets the front. Be vocal and don't be shy. Now is not the moment for that anyway.

Some women will find that they love the sensation and the act of double penetration (it's incredibly hot to them), but their perineum feels otherwise. Our solution to this? Lube up and direct the rhythm and speed. No one should be going rough and fast, especially not right away. Take the time to get into a good back and forth stroke between each person.

Tips & Tricks (and Staying Safe)

It may not even need to be said but always make sure you're using a condom, especially with multiple partners. If they want to switch where they're positioned, change condoms. The last thing you want is UTI (or something more sinister) because of - oh, we're just going to say it - double dipping (#sorrynotsorry).

If you'd like to know if DP'ing is for you, start with a partner and a toy. Again, neither should be switching spots. If you're using an anal toy, try to go with an anal dildo rather than anal beads as the in and out sensation will mimic the penetration of two partners far better.
