Why have anal sex?
Anal sex is something a lot of people feel very strongly about - they either love it or hate it. At the same time, there’s a huge number of people who have never tried anal sex, anal masturbation or any type of anal play. If you’re an anal play virgin but are interested in trying it out, this article is perfect for you. Here, you will discover the most common types of anal toys and tips on who should use them and how.
How to use anal sex toys?
Before we get into different types of anal sex devices, you need to know the basics of anal sex and anal masturbation. The first and most important step is to be completely relaxed - this is the only way to make anal sex pleasurable and not painful. You should also make sure that you go super slow, use lots of lubricant and carefully listen to your body and communicate with your partner about your or their sensations. You should also remember to thoroughly wash all the toys after using them and never put a toy, finger or penis from the anus into the vagina.
How to choose my first anal toy?
There are a few key criteria you should look at when choosing your first anal sex toy. First of all, make sure that you choose a toy that’s small, no thicker than a finger. This will help you get comfortable and learn to enjoy anal sex. A beginner anal toy should also be completely smooth but you can go for a vibrating option, as it can be more pleasurable and fun.
Types of anal toys
Anal dildos for anal masturbation
Anal dildos don’t need an introduction - they are very similar to vaginal dildos but most of them also have a flared base to prevent them from getting sucked into the rectum and disappearing there. If you’re a beginner in anal play, stick to anal dildos that are thin, made from silicone and have a smooth surface.
Anal beads - fun anal sex toys for better orgasms
Anal beads are often featured in porn - they consist of several beads connected in a row progressing from smaller to larger. These beads are usually inserted into the anus and then pulled out just as you're about to have an orgasm to make the sensations even stronger. When choosing anal beads, stay away from those that are connected by a string and pick beads that are connected by silicone, plastic or other non-porous material.
Butt plugs for kinky anal play
Butt plugs are toys that both men and women can enjoy. These anal toys have a wide base that prevents the plus from disappearing inside the anus, a narrow neck that’s meant to be located inside the sphincter and a cone-shaped plus that can be of any size you want. Butt plugs can be used during vaginal sex with a woman to give her a sense of fullness, during other types of sex for both men and women and in day-to-day life as part of a BDSM lifestyle.
Prostate massagers for men
The last popular type of anal toy is a prostate massager, which is used only by men. These anal toys have a shape designed specifically to provide maximum stimulation to the prostate, which is an extremely sensitive gland located about two inches into a man’s anus.
