Anal gape is the look of the anus following anal penetration. Anal sex, the use of anal sex toys, and anal training can all stretch the anal sphincter and create an anal gape. The act of creating an anal gape is called anal gaping. A person of any gender who engages in anal play may develop an anal gape.
Anal gaping is the process of stretching the anus to create the anal gape. This process opens up the anus more, creating a look that some people find arousing compared to the traditional closed sphincter. People can practice anal gaping by placing things inside the anus that stretch it open. Anal gaping may occur after an extended anal sex session or through playing with anal toys, such as dildos and butt plugs. The anus gapes because it’s fooled into thinking it needs to pass waste.
