Contrary to popular misconceptions, DP isn’t purely an act that takes place in porn or fantasies.
What is Double Penetration?
Without getting too complicated, double penetration, at its simplest, refers to the simultaneous penetration of two orifices during sexual activity, the most common being vaginal and anal. The most popular use of the term DP is a consensual exploration involving both partners being comfortable and willing to explore two holes at once. Contrary to popular misconceptions, DP isn’t purely an act that takes place in porn or fantasies. It’s also a popular sensation that some solo people and couples or groups choose to explore. There are many ways to be dual penetrated, such as two separate holes (mouth/ass, ass/vagina, vagina/mouth), two insertables in one hole, a toy and a person, two people, and two toys; the options really open the door to many different options for sensations.
Once you’ve decided you want to explore double penetration, there are a variety of approaches that work for different preferences and comfort levels. The main ways are manual, toy-assisted, and partner-involved techniques. When we are talking about manual double penetration, it involves the simultaneous stimulation of both vaginal and anal areas using hands or fingers. This allows for a more personalized and sometimes intimate experience since your partner’s touch purely guides it.
Regardless of the method you decide to explore, the person being penetrated should have their safety and comfort prioritized.
The sex toy-assisted double penetration incorporates the use of specially designed toys for vaginal and anal penetration. This type of DP allows enhanced sensations and more options for play. When looking to involve more than one partner in double penetration, each partner would contribute to the stimulation. Regardless of the method you decide to explore, the person being penetrated should have their safety and comfort prioritized.
Pleasure, Sensations, and Comfort
The common myth about anal sex, in general, is that anal sex is painful, so with double penetration, the assumption is that it will be painful and uncomfortable since DP typically involves anal penetration. But with the proper preparation, relaxation, and communication, the entire experience should be pleasurable! The potential for pleasure is vast with double penetration! Not only are there a lot of opportunities for various sensations to occur in tandem or succession, but many people enjoy double penetration for the feeling of fullness or stretching it can provide.
If you’re a vulva owner, DP can stimulate the G-spot, the clitoris, and the anus simultaneously, leading to incredibly strong orgasms. If you’re a penis owner, DP can make your partner’s vagina feel tighter, and if you’re using toys in the other hole can add texture since the wall between the butt and vagina is so thin. If there are anal beads like the Tantus bead-style dildo in the backdoor, and you’re thrusting in the front door, you’ll feel that texture through the thin wall. When you’re experiencing Double Penetration, go slow and pay close attention. You’ll also feel your partner’s vaginal or anal walls get tighter as they adjust to the pressure of receiving two insertables at once. For some, DP is the ultimate fantasy. For others, DP is a way to explore fantasies like group sex, being (consensually!) forced to engage in certain acts, or more.
Tips for a Positive Experience
Communication is the most important piece of the puzzle. You’ll want to talk about it in detail; by that, I mean explicit, painstaking detail. Because there are so many different options and details you’ll need to agree on to participate in DP, just agreeing to try it doesn’t give enough information. You’ll want to make sure you go over:
- Who’s the one that’s actually going to be double penetrated?
- In what hole(s)? With what toy or person? In what order?
- What toy(s) are you open to trying?
- What positions are you interested in exploring?
- What safety barriers are going to be used (if any)?
Getting the Right Toys
Being prepared can help you achieve the DP of your dreams. If the goal is for one partner to penetrate the other anally and vaginally, the SquareParts Deuce Harness is a great option. While it’s made for penis owners to wear comfortably, vulva owners looking to wield two dildos can also wear the harness.

Just keep in mind the bottom line with butt toys. Without a base, without a trace! If it’s going to go in your backdoor, it needs a flared base!
Even if one of the holes you’re penetrating is naturally self-lubricating like the front hole, lube is still non-negotiable.
Lube, lube, lube, and probably even more lube
Even if one of the holes you’re penetrating is naturally self-lubricating like the front hole, lube is still non-negotiable. This situation will involve a lot of friction and stretching no matter how you’re doing it, so it’s best to minimize irritation and maximize the slip, which simply makes everything feel better. And if you’re involving the backdoor, keep in mind that the anus doesn’t self-lubricate, so you’ll need some long-lasting lube to help you along.
If you aren’t using sex toys, silicone or oil-based lubes are longer lasting and perfect for skin-to-skin fun. If you are using sex toys, especially sex toys that are made out of softer materials like silicone or elastomer, you’ll want to stick to water-based lubes to keep your sex toys in their best condition. A thicker water-based formula or a hybrid lubricant can help it last longer. But don’t be afraid to reapply as necessary, and use as much lube as helps you feel comfortable.
Step by step
So, how should you actually approach penetrating two holes at once? You’ll want to go slow and get your mind and body turned on first. Warm-up will be particularly important when your goal is to penetrate more than one hole. Once you’re very aroused, then, and only then, should you start penetrating whichever hole you prefer first. You can start with one finger or toy before adding in a second. When you add the second object, go slowly and mindfully back off if there are any burning sensations or sharp pains. Keep in mind that your body will have limitations, so if you go large in one hole, you might have to go smaller in the 2nd hole.
Exploring solo can help you be prepared to know how to approach it, your limits, precisely what you like, and which positions you enjoy.
Exploring solo can help you be prepared to know how to approach it, your limits, precisely what you like, and which positions you enjoy. You’ll have an easier time starting by keeping one of the toys stationary while thrusting the other or having a partner thrust. Then, you can move on to thrusting two holes at once or two objects or people at once. After you’ve explored solo, when your partner(s) join, you’ll have a better grasp of what you enjoy about DP.
Positions can be the hardest part to configure, especially when there are multiple people in the mix, so don’t get discouraged, and feel free to mix it up. Some popular positions are doggy style, a rider on top, and 69. Every time you explore, you’ll learn a little bit more about your body and what does and does not work.
Aftercare and Self-Care
When all is said and done, be sure to check in on each other’s emotional and physical needs or your own if DPing solo. Debrief with your partner(s) about how you’re feeling, what was hot, and what you could have done without. It’s also a good idea to check in with your body: Your holes might be sore, swollen, and drier than normal. Aloe-based lube, drinking water, and applying Southern Butter’s Backdoor Balm can all help. If there are any lingering or sharp pains after a day or so, you should head to your doctor.
