Anal toys are specially designed for fun backdoor play. Anal toys come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, including strings of colourful beads and mushroom-shaped plugs. All anal toys include special safety features, such as extra-large bases and retrieval rings, to make sure your backdoor adventure doesn’t end with an embarrassing doctor’s visit.

The anus is packed with nerve ending that are receptive to stimulation and can result in anal orgasms for both men and women. However, this guide is focusing specifically on toys that stimulate and massage the prostate.
The prostate is a walnut sized, semen-storing gland located at the root of the penis. The P-spot, also sometimes known as the male G-spot, is the area of the prostate that can be felt and stimulated. Research suggests that regular prostate massage reduces the risk of prostatitis, prostate cancer, symptoms of erectile dysfunction, and genital pain.

Despite the immense pleasure that can found in the prostate, it is still relatively taboo among heterosexual men. Well, you’re missing out! A recent study found that the male orgasm is 33% more powerful when the prostate is stimulated, and there are plenty more reasons why you should try it…

Does it Hurt?

If you’ve ever had an unpleasant medical exam with an anal examination, you may think that all anal play feels like that. The truth is that people are nervous when they go to the doctor and tend to clench up a bit. Clenching is one of the worst things you can do to start anal play – so before going any further, you need to take some time to relax. Discuss anal play with your partner to reduce any anxiety you might have, invest in some good lube, and focus on foreplay until you’re ready to take it up a notch.

Anal Hygiene

When it comes to anal sex, one of the biggest turn offs is the thought of the mess that can occur post-penetration. Anal sex can be messy, but good anal hygiene will address most of those concerns. First, empty your bowels at least 30 minutes before you start. If you’re looking for a more thorough clean, we recommend buying an Anal Douche (£11.99, kinky.co.uk). These are affordable, easy to use, and will loosen any debris and ensure your passage is clear. Douching takes a little getting used to, but it’s worth it – it can really enhance your anal play.

This may sound obvious, but make sure you clean your anal toys thoroughly after every use. This is even more important if you share your toys with your partner (after all, most anal toys are unisex…and sharing is caring). There are products available that are marketed as sex toy cleaners, however, hot soapy water will also do the trick.

Choosing the Right Toy

Anal toys are both enjoyable and easy to use. Nevertheless, there’s a few things to take into consideration before purchasing your first toy. Firstly, buy from a respected store and if possible, check the quality of the toy before purchasing. The right material can make or break your anal toy. Silicone, rubber, TPE and TPR are good for soft, flexible anal toys. If you want something firmer, then try plastic or glass.

Next, you should look at the size and shape of the toy. Many people buy an anal toy and find out that it’s much bigger than they can handle. If you’ve never used an anal toy before, start with a small-beginner friendly option. These anal toys are typically less than 1″ wide and about 3″ or 4″ long. Let your anus adjust to the size of the item, you can always buy something bigger later!

Before you get to the checkout, make sure that you buy plenty of lube. The anus and rectum don’t lubricate on their own, so they need a little help. Lube will reduce friction and will make the experience far more pleasurable. There’s a variety of anal lubes available, but any lube will do the job. Just make sure you apply plenty of it before the fun begins.

When it comes to anal toys, the three main categories are – butt plugs, anal dildos, and anal beads. Each of these toys will stimulate the prostate directly or indirectly, so there’s no right or wrong toy. It is simply a matter of preference.

Top Techniques

Like any sexual practice, anal play requires foreplay. Anal fingering is a good way for beginners to kick things off – start by exploring the area around the anus. Slowly insert a (lubed) finger, hold it, and then slowly drag the finger out. You are in control here, so only go as far as you feel comfortable. Take your time – with patience, practice, and lashings of lube you’ll soon get used to the feeling. When you’re comfortable and ready, there are a variety of anal toys designed with beginners in mind.

The Finger Rimmer Set (£9.99, kinky.co.uk) is great for beginners looking to work their way up. The set contains three plugs; starting with small and going bigger when you’re ready for more. These plugs are soft, beautifully tapered, and have rings at the base for greater control. When you’ve mastered the smaller toys, moving onto something like the Anal Fantasy Beaded Luv Probe (£24.99, kinky.co.uk) will allow you to slowly increase girth, length, and speed. Just remember to keep the lube coming!
