The Best Anal Sex Toys for Butt Beginners
Wand attachments Have you got yourself a magic wand already or a similar wand vibrator compatible with wand attachments? Try an insertable attachment for anal pleasure. Le Wand offers several insertable wand attachments, including prostate stimulation, for their full-size and miniature wands. If you love the intensity of the wand vibrations, this is a great butt play option, especially if you aren't ready to invest in a vibrating anal toy. For prostate stimulation The prostate, a walnut-size gland located about 2 inches up the anal canal in people with penises, is a central pleasure point. When stimulated, it can intensify penile orgasms and potentially induce prostate orgasms. Butt plugs anal sex toy, dildos, wand attachments, you name it: If it can go in your butt, then there are probably variations for folks with prostates that are shaped to provide prostate stimulation specifically. For the kink curious Hooks Hooks, while they can be a lot of fun, aren't for the faint of heart. They're usually made of stainless steel and feature a sphere or ball shape at the tip of the insertable end. They aren't necessarily designed to be comfortable but rather to make the wearer adapt their movement and position to wear it comfortably or promote pleasure. The non inserted end usually has a loop, like this one, for someone else to hold and direct the wearer. If you're into BDSM at all, this should be on your radar! Tunnel plugs Picture a typical butt plug but with a hollowed-out middle. That's a tunnel plug. Some people like to wear them for aesthetics, while others prefer to wear them during anal penetration. Tunnel plugs keep the anus stretched, which may make penetration more accessible for folks who don't enjoy the sensation of continual stretching and contracting. LovePlugs offers a variety of tunnel plugs, like this one. Tail plugs Tail plugs are a fun variety of anal plugs for folks who want to experiment with a bit of anthropomorphic fun. If the animal has a tail, there's probably a tail plug replica to be had. Some of the more popular realistic options include fox, cat, and bunny tails. Although these plugs are often available in silicone, glass or stainless steel option may be best — unless you don't mind if the hair sticks to the silicone and hitches a ride inside your bum. Optional sexcessories Starter kits and training kits New to strap-on anal sex or pegging? Starter kits are a perfect option. Strap-on starter kits, like the Tantus Bend Over Beginner and the Sportsheets Anal Explorer, come with one or two small-ish, usually plain and smooth, silicone dildos and a compatible harness. Training kits, like this one from b-Vibe, are for folks interested in anal training. Anal training involves using butt plugs of gradually increasing size to prepare your anus for comfortable penetration. Training kits often come with a lube shooter (for dispensing lube into the anal canal) and a primary douche, like this one from b-Vibe. Lubes When it comes to anal play, lube is a nonnegotiable part of the equation. That's because, unlike the vagina, the anus doesn't self-lubricate. If you're playing with silicone toys or latex condoms, use a thick aloe- or water-based lube, like Sliquid Sassy or Tush Cush. If there are no condoms involved, you can use oil-based lube. Cult-favourite, The Butters Lube, is a thick, luscious solution perfect for those who like to explore the backdoor with toys and fingers. A note, though: If you're prone to acne on your butt or worried about staining your sheets, skip oil-based lubes. (Oil-based lubes can trap bacteria and may lead to breakouts or infections.) Arousal oils If you're new to anal play, you might be interested in trying a CBD arousal oil like the Foria Awaken or Quim Smooth Operator. Both are lauded for their muscle-relaxing and blood-circulating properties. It's important to note that although CBD arousal oils are often labelled as "lube," they shouldn't be used in place of regular lube. Be sure to use these with your usual lube option. Enemas and wipes If you want to prepare downstairs and clean things out with a little douching, doing so is safe as long as you use water or saline enema solution and don't douche too often. You can grab a single-use fleet enema at any drugstore, or you can purchase a simple douche at most sex shops, like this one from Lovehoney. If you'd instead opt for something speedier, a thorough clean with a baby wipe or an intimate wipe should suffice like these wipes from Royal! Suppositories Yup, you read that right: Feel-good pills for your bum! Anal CBD suppositories, like the ones from Mello and Foria, are another way to rev things up for your rear end. Suppositories are inserted deep inside the anal canal, where the CBD dissolves and is absorbed by the body. The bottom line When it comes to toying around in your tush, there's something for everybody. Just remember to use plenty of lube, go at your own pace, and relax!
