Rimming

AKA anilingus.

Hanky code

Beige, worn:

  • on the left side (wants to rim)
  • on the right side (wants to be rimmed)

What is rimming?

Rimming is exploring someone’s arse with your tongue, including licking the arse hole and pushing the tongue inside. A ‘rimming stool’ is a specially made chair that lets someone sit with their bare arse accessible to the rimmer, who lies underneath the seat.

What’s the attraction?

Rimming can be a pleasurable act in itself, or as a warm-up for fucking, it can relax or tease the arse hole, getting it used to being probed before it takes a finger or cock.

Part of the thrill can be taboo-breaking as we’re brought up thinking the arse is dirty and shouldn’t be played with, let alone licked. It plays with the power dynamics of degradation and submission: “kiss my arse” is a powerful way of calling for someone’s humiliation.
