ANAL SEX TOYS: TABOO OR TURN ON?
Your anus has thousands of sensitive nerve endings in and around it so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that playing with your bum hole can bring a new level of pleasure to your love making. Anal sex toys have been made especially to take full advantage of those sensitive nerve endings and give you mind blowing stimulation.
But(t) where do you start? What anal toy should you use? What options do you have to indulge in anal play. If you are not sure let us give you a quick run down in our beginners guide to anal sex toys, which will shed some light on the most popular types of anal toys and how they can spice up your sex life.
When you talk about anal toys, a butt plug is usually the first thing that will come to mind. Butt plugs are probably also the first kind of anal toy most people will experiment with when they start anal play.
Their simple design and unique anal stimulation makes them a firm favourite with both beginners and veterans of bum play.
The basic butt plug design offers unique stimulation, especially when it is paired with other activities like oral sex or vaginal intercourse. The sensation of fullness and being stretched open that butt plugs provide can produce incredibly powerful orgasms for both women and men.
Butt plugs are a very versatile toy.
You can use them to massage, tease or stimulate the anal area as part of sex play. Or they can be used to stretch your anus before you enjoy something a bit bigger, like a dildo, a benwa ball or your partner’s penis.
Butt plugs can also be used for more long-term stimulation. You may not know it, but many people actually enjoy the sensation of wearing a butt plug whilst they go about their day to day activities. Either just for themselves or as part of Dom/sub play. We can guarantee you that wearing a but plug will certainly makes your trip to the supermarket more exciting!
For a bigger selection head you can have a browse through our huge range of butt plugs.
Anal beads are usually a series of balls or beads which are joined together by a flexible material like a string or a silicon stem.
Anal Beads are an ideal toy for beginners. The first few beads are usually smaller but slowly get bigger in size, allowing you to enjoy more and more girth and length as you insert the toy.
They can be used alone or with a partner for a unique anal stimulation during masturbation or to add some sensation during intercourse.
One of the things you can do is to pull the beads out just before orgasm to add to the excitement and to experience an intense sensation unlike anything else you’ve ever had before!
Anal beads are the perfect toy for both beginners and experienced anal players. We recommend you check out the rest of the anal beads to see if something tickles your fancy.
Regular dildos can of course be used for anal play, but they may be a little bit too intense or advanced for some beginners. That is why we would recommend you start off with a specific anal dildo.
Anal dildos, sometimes also called anal probes, usually come with tapered heads for easier insertion and are often shaped to stimulate certain specific pleasure zones on the inside.
For Women these shaped dildo will stimulate the sensitive back wall of the vagina similar to a G-spot stimulator (but from the other side) which can create some interesting new sensations.
For men, the shaped part of the dildo will allow you to reach erogenous zones like the sensitive prostate gland that aren’t possible to stimulate any other way.
Anal dildos can come as solid toys or with built in vibrators, whichever takes your fancy really.
Vibrating anal dildos are the perfect toy for those who have already experienced the sensation of vibrations elsewhere on the body. Your new buzzing butt buddy not only provides fantastic penetration but also provides that added tingling sensations to your sphincter, which will allow you to relax into the best orgasm ever!
There is a huge number of anal dildos available in a variety of different sizes, shapes, with and without vibration; there is sure to be one to fit you.
Sorry ladies, but this is an anal sex toy just for guys or to use on your guy. We already mentioned that shaped anal dildos can help you to get to those hard to reach sensitive spots. Prostate massagers will let you stimulate areas your guy never even knew he had.
We won’t go into too many technical details here, but suffice to say that the prostate is the male equivalent of the g-spot. It is located just a few inches inside the anus and is just begging to be discovered and massaged.
Using one of our prostate massagers will give your guy mind blowing new sensations and can lead to a full body orgasm, known as the “Super O”.
Don’t forget to check out the rest of our prostate massagers out.
For the more experienced anal sex toy aficionado double penetration will only be a small step for mankind.
Maybe you are just curious about double penetration (DP), but don’t really feel comfortable with inviting someone else to the party? Then don’t worry, we have a range of toys that can help you plug both ends.
Like their name suggest double penetration toys are designed for simultaneous penetration, providing ultimate anal and vaginal pleasure for the more experienced lovers.
If you want to try your hand at double the fun then we recommend you take a look at the complete range of double dildos.
DOUCHES AND ENEMAS
We don’t need to get into details, but if you are going to indulge in anal play then cleanliness is maybe one of the things that should be on your mind. Having anal sex is much more fun if you don’t have to worry about little accidents happening.
If you want to be squeaky clean before you indulge in anal play, then it may be worthwhile investing in a douche or enema kit.
These clever pieces of kit dispense water or other leaning fluid straight into it into the rectum, helping to remove any waste materials and leaving you ready and primed for safe, clean, hygienic sex!
Although it may seem like a strange thing to do at first, but once you try a douche you’ll always want to use it before every anal play session!
One other thing! If you are going to indulge in anal play, always make sure you have plenty of lubricant to hand to lube your toys and your anus.
Unlike a vagina, your anus isn’t self lubricating so it will need some help in that department.
A good quality lube will help to prevent injuries and make the whole experience so much more pleasurable for everybody involved.
It doesn’t matter if they are water or silicon based, but just make sure they are suitable for your toy.
If you aren’t sure which lube to use then why not check out the complete range of lubes?
I hope this short beginners guide to anal sex toys has helped you to give you a brief introduction to the various types of anal toys there are available and given you some ideas on how to add some variety to your sex life.
