When Fingers Aren’t Enough- A Beginners Guide To Anal Sex Toys

There’s a lot to consider when contemplating anal, especially if it’s previously been an “exit only” road. The best part about anal is that anyone can try it out and experiment with it for fun. Anal has lost the taboo status that put a lot of people off trying it out and nowadays there’s more reasons than not to have a go with a partner you’re comfortable with or treat yourself to a new sensation. 


Introduction To Anal

One of the most important things to remember is that the anus doesn’t produce any natural lubricant like a vagina would so using lube is a necessity not an option. Silicone based lube is generally better for anal play as it has a thicker feel and lasts longer, but when using toys water based lube should be used as silicone based can react with the material the toy is made out of and degrade it. Due to this, I recommend a hybrid lube like SPUNK lubricant which is toy safe with a creamy feel.

It can be tempting to choose a lube that has a relaxant or desensitizing quality to it, especially if you’re nervous about trying anal. Anal should NOT result in discomfort or pain, that’s a sign that something is going wrong (for example, that you’re not relaxed enough). By not using desensitizing creams, you’ll be able to feel if something isn’t right and adjust accordingly without risking damaging your body. 


When choosing toys to use for anal play, try and opt for something non-porous to make cleaning easier. You can also use a condom over your toy to make clean up even easier. Clean your toy before and after use, either with an anti-bacterial toy cleaner or warm soapy water AND before using it in a different orifice. That means do not switch from vagina to anus or vice versa without cleaning the toy first or you risk infection.


When selecting a toy make sure it is intended for anal use. All anal toys should have a flared base or handle, and a tapered tip for easier insertion. Don’t be tempted to use any external use toys (like bullets) or household makeshift dildos (put the carrots back in the fridge)- the anus has a tendency to act like a vacuum and once something is stuck in there, it generally means a visit to A&E is imminent. 


Some people choose to douche. Some people just give their behind a rinse with water and soap. It’s a personal preference but don’t be concerned if shit does show up- it’s where it comes from after all. Keep wipes and towels on hand just in case.

Warming up isn’t just for the gym. Start slow with fingers and lots of lube, inserting one finger at a time and massaging until relaxed and comfortable. Make sure fingernails are trimmed and clean to avoid cuts or infections. You can also use a condom over fingers for extra safety and cleanliness. 


Types Of Anal Sex Toys


Butt Plugs

Butt plugs are one of the simplest designs of anal sex toy and most popular. They come in all designs and sizes with a tapered tip and flared base. They are made to be worn for longer periods of time as well as short term use, so can be used throughout the day as your sexy little secret. They are also good for wearing during sex as when inserted into the anus, they put pressure on the back wall of the vagina making it feel tighter. For extra stimulation, there are also inflatable plugs and vibrating ones.

Anal Beads

Anal beads are a string of spheres, usually graduating in size with smaller ones as the first to be inserted and larger ones at the bottom of the string by the handle. They are made of flexible materials so they can bend easily and the different sizes of beads means you can take as many or as little as you’d like. Remove the beads during climax to increase and prolong orgasm. These are ideal for beginners due to the small size and ease of use.

Anal Dildos

These are a precision sex toy, featuring a tapered tip and narrower size than regular dildos with a flared base or suction cup. They are great for feelings of fullness and work brilliantly for those wishing to try pegging (see our blog for more detail on this). They may also feature a curve to stimulate the P-spot or prostate gland located in the anal cavity for an amazing sensation.
