From butt plugs to anal beads, and everything in-between, here are some of our top tips for buying the perfect booty toy.
First, choose your anal play experience level. Are you a beginner to anal play, or are you an advanced anal player? Next, choose the toy type that best fits your anal desires. Read about the Anal Sex Toys Guide to find out about the different types of adult toys available and what their intended purposes are.
If you're new to anal play and anal sex, there are only a few toy types suitable for you. That's because the anus is a highly sensitive and delicate body part, so care and patience is needed when starting out with anal play.
The best butt toys for beginners are: Anal Training Kits, Butt Plugs, and Anal Beads. Specifically, for men, we recommend P-spot toys, also known as prostate massagers, which are shaped with a bulbous tipped curve to reach a man's prostate easily.
Anal play beginners should start with small toys, such as butt plugs or anal beads, to get used to the sensation of anal play. Anal training kits are a great way to get started with anal play because they include a few different sized toys suited for beginners. Read our Anal Training Guide for Beginners to find out more.
To use an anal sex toy, cover the toy in personal lubricant, and apply lubricant to the entrance of your anus. Insert the toy into the anus slowly and carefully, and stop inserting once the toy is inserted as far as you are comfortable with. The flared base or handle of the toy must remain outside the anus at all times for safe and easy removal. Make sure you read our Anal Safety Guide before trying anal play for the first time, to ensure you're playing safe.
Butt toys should be cleaned thoroughly straight after each use using hot water, antibacterial soap and sex toy cleaner. If sharing a toy with a partner, make sure you use a condom to prevent the spread of bacteria and sexually transmitted diseases and infections.
For anal play experts wanting to push their sexual boundaries and add new sensations during anal play, there are so many great options for stimulating, teasing and penetrating the anal region for sexual fulfilment. Experiment with temperature anal play using glass booty toys which can be heated or cooled. Add stimulation by vibration with anal vibrators, or take animal role play to the next level with butt plug tails.
If you're after a toy that will challenge you and fill you to the brim, huge butt toys will do the trick. Open your anus up for advanced anal play using tunnel butt plugs, or explore the orgasmic sensations of squirting toys or double penetration toys. Beware, these booty toys aren't for beginners and major anal training should be undertaken before these particular toys are used.
