Beginners Guide To Anal Sex Toys!

Anal sex is no longer a huge taboo in the sex world! With plenty of anal sex toys for you to indulge in anal play, exploring the realm of backdoor pleasure worth the body-rockin’ stimulation you’ll get with these types of intimate products. These distinct sex toys come in a wide range of shapes and sizes that anyone from any experience level can enjoy. Read our handy guide here on to see how you can give your tush all the naughty loving it deserves.

Anal Beads

Slim and small, anal beads are the perfect starter toy for all your backdoor pleasure curiosities. Typical anal beads have a graduated bead shape where the first bead is the smallest and the last bead is the largest. This design isn’t just to make the toy look appealing: By having a line of spheres that gradually get bigger as you slide the toy deeper inside you, you can experiment with sizes and pop in one bead at a time at your own pace. Some anal beads like our featured anal bead and the Flexa Pleaser Anal Beads have beads that are the same size, but are still small enough for comfortable backdoor fun for novices. You’ll also find that some anal beads are ball-shaped like the Power Balls Large Anal Beads.

Anal Dildos

For the more advanced beginner or anal sex toy expert, anal dildos are specially designed for backdoor penetration, similar to how regular dildos are commonly used for vaginal stimulation. Great for anal play enthusiasts who want a more satisfying anal sex toy, anal dildos fill you up more than slimmer toys do like anal beads. You’ll find that many of these dildos have a curved body or angled tip that is exclusively for prostate stimulation for men. The prostate (p-spot or male G-spot) is an ultra-sensitive male erogenous zone that delivers intense sensations when stimulated. To make the p-spot easier to reach, prostate massagers or curved anal dildos like the Icicles No. 46 Glass Prostate Massager give you that extension you need to arouse your prostate. For a special dildo that’s just for your backdoor hot spot, try one of these sensational anal dildos!

Anal Probes

Designed for deeper anal penetration, anal probes allow you to enjoy more anal adventures. These probes tend to be slimmer and smaller than anal dildos, but you can also find a wide range of anal probes to enjoy that come in various sizes and designs.

Anal Hygiene

One of the major concerns that people have when it comes to anal play is how to stay sanitized and clean for a better experience for yourself or with your partner. Anal hygiene is crucial since having anal sex, whether your toys or lover, can spread bacteria and other impurities that you don’t want. Prep yourself easily with a special anal hygiene tool! One of the easiest and best ways for you to cleanse yourself is to use a douche such as California Exotics Anal Douche that squirts water inside your anal canal and helps flush out any impurities. These anal douches commonly have a slim nozzle for easy insertion; some also have extra nozzles in different shapes and sizes to give you a dose of pleasure while you cleanse. Maintain your anal hygiene with these handy toys so that you can enjoy backdoor stimulation with your toys or your partner!

Butt Plug Toys

As the classic toy for anal bliss, butt plugs have the simplest shape of all backdoor pleasure gear, but they still deliver intense and exciting stimulation that will leave you gasping for air. Traditional butt plugs have a cone-like shape that has a pointed or rounded tapered tip for effortless insertion. For safety purposes, most butt plugs have a retrieval ring or curved or straight handles at the end to ensure that the toy doesn’t go too deep inside you. If you’re looking for an unconventional, yet sensational, butt plug, you can find a range of uniquely designed plugs that will arouse you in ways that a traditional butt plug can’t do. They have a one-of-a-kind build that makes anal stimulation interesting and arousing, which is excellent for those who are looking for a different type of butt plug for their collection.

Male Prostate Massagers

Located in front of the anal canal, the prostate is a male erogenous zone that’s super sensitive and similar to the female’s G-spot. When stimulated, many men experience a prostate orgasm that leaves them breathless. But this hard-to-reach area gets the right amount of pressure with a male prostate massager. These cleverly curved pleasure wands give the prostate direct stimulation so that you can feel the mind-blowing thrills instantly. Some massagers vibrate as well so that you can deliver even more stimulation to this nerve-rich spot.

Since the anal canal is dry and doesn’t have any natural lubrication, we always recommend that you use a high-quality, long-lasting anal lubricant, which you can find in our Anal Lubricants Collection. These lubricants are specially formulated to give you comfort when you use anal sex toys. If you need help applying enough lubricant inside your anal canal, grab a pack of the Cal Exotics Lube Tube Applicator, which are tubes that push lubricant inside you with ease and ensures that you’re completed coated.
