Sex toys for anal play

Welcome to the world of anal play. There are a number of different anal toys available that are suitable for anal play. These include butt plugs, vibrators and vibrating butt plugs, anal beads, dildos, and prostate massagers.

When it comes to deciding which anal toys are best for you, think about what would stimulate you and what you will be comfortable with.

Butt plug:

Butt plugs are an anal toy specifically designed for extra stimulation, the butt plug is gently inserted into the anus giving you a 'filled up' sensation. The butt plugs simple design and unique stimulation makes them a firm favourite with beginners and experienced anal players alike.

Butt plugs come in many different shapes, sizes, colours, textures and material. Some butt plugs are curved to follow the contour of the anal canal e.g. Fun Factory Bloomy. All butt plugs have flared bases so they do not become completely inserted into the anus.

A butt plug feels pleasurable to have inserted while you are being pleasured in other ways. A butt plug is sometimes used as a stepping stone to prepare the anus for larger sized anal toys, such as an anal dildo or an anal vibrator or a penis.

Vibrating Butt Plugs:

A vibrating butt plug with a flared base is the perfect anal toy for those who want the full sensation of an anal plug with the buzzing of a vibrator. These vibrations can feel incredible on the nerve endings and to the sphincter rings, allowing you to relax your anal muscles into the best orgasm ever!

Using a vibrating butt plug is the same as inserting a butt plug, especially if you turn the vibrator on once the vibrating butt plug is fully inside you, which makes penetration much easier. Best way to start is with a vibrating butt plug that has a super slim tip and graduated shaft that will allow you to insert it with ease.

Vaginal Vibrators can be applied to the outer regions of the anus, which are very receptive to stimulation. Vaginal Vibrators can be used in your anus, however only if they have a flared base, so that they do not get submerged in the anal canal. Remember to use a condom for easy clean.

Anal Dildos:

Anal Dildos are specially shaped for easier insertion with a tapered head. The anal dildos are usually shaped to stimulate the prostate gland in men and the back wall of the vagina in women. Regular dildos may be used, as long as they have a flared base, but usually for the more experienced user, such as the Fun Factory Magnum Dildo.

Anal dildos may be hand held or strapped on with a harness, for hands free sexual pleasure.

Some dildos are double ended where one end is for the vagina and the longer shaft is used for penetration of a male or female partner (either anal or vaginal). This enables the couple to share stimulations during penetration. The double ended dildos come in different sizes and textures to cater for beginners to the more experienced anal players. A brilliant double ended dildo is the Fuze Toys 2 Vibrating Double Ended Dildo.

Anal Beads:

Anal beads are also known as love beads or oriental beads, they are a string of beads that often graduate in size, joined together by flexible material. The first few beads usually start off small but slowly graduate in size, allowing you to enjoy more and more length and girth. These anal beads are inserted into the anal canal, and then pulled out one at a time at the point of orgasm. Many of the anal beads are made of silicone as it is a soft material. Gently insert each bead into the anus. The pelvic floor muscles in both men and women contract during orgasm and they run in a figure 8 around the anus, so the anal bead will increase the intensity of the orgasm and contraction of the pelvic floor muscles.

Anal beads are ideal for beginners; anal beads can be used alone for unique anal stimulation or during masturbation or intercourse. An example of a great anal bead is: Adrien Lastic Budy Anal Beads.

Prostate Massagers:

Prostate Massagers for men come as both vibrating and non-vibrating options. The Male G-Spot or P-Spot, is actually the simulation of the prostate gland through the anal wall. The prostate gland is located around 2 inches inside the male anus, and is easily stimulated with prostate anal toys, creating fantastic sensations. There is a growing body of research to indicate that regular prostate massage (milking the prostate) is good for men's prostate health…and it feels great.

Some prostate massagers massage both the prostate and perineum, resulting in rock hard erections, mind-blowing orgasms and adding another whole dimension to male pleasure. These specially designed anal toys have a handle which act as an anchor, keeping the end outside where it should be! Specially designed prostate stimulators are impossible to lose and boast a super smooth shaft and seam-free head so nothing on the toy can tear or damage the sensitive tissue in the anal area, unless improperly used.

Some men can orgasm without the penis even being touched, from climaxing via prostate massage alone. Rocks Off have a brilliant range of hands-free prostate massagers, such as: Rude Boy Prostate Vibrator.


Relax, go slowly, communicate, be gentle and start small. Have fun and experiment with different types and methods of anal play and enjoy this form of sexual pleasure!
