Whether a newbie to anal toys or looking to extend your current collection you’ll find something that’ll have you enjoying full-body orgasms and new sensations. Get an idea of the best type of anal toys for both men and women and how you can use them to their full potential. 

There are plenty of types of anal toys out there on the market and as ever it is very important to purchase sex toys that are intended for anal insertion for the very best P-spot and A-spot orgasms. Your anal sphincter muscles can suck up small items, leading to a very stressful and potentially dangerous situation. Before inserting anything into your anus you should get clued up on exploring both anal training and anal preparation

Whenever you use any kind of anal toys make sure you apply lube generously - unlike the vaginal canal, the anus is not self-lubricating so to avoid any discomfort or tears regularly applying lubrication is very important. The type of lube you should use depends on what you are using it with, for example, silicone lube is great for anal sex but should never be used with silicone-based sex toys, as it can cause them to break down over time. Oil-based lube lasts a while but is messy and can’t be used with latex condoms, whilst water-based lubes are versatile but they do dry out quickly so you need to reapply often and generously.

    Butt plugs

    Butt plugs are great for experimentation - regardless of sex. For people with prostates, it can hit the P-spot producing pleasurable sensations, whilst for people with vulva's, butt plugs create a tighter, fuller sensation when penetrated vaginally and can stimulate the A-spot and G-spot if it’s a vibrating butt plug. This can be perfect for those who enjoy a feeling of fullness anally and is a great place to start if you or your partner want to explore anal stimulation further.

    Butt plugs come in all shapes, sizes, and materials, although it’s recommended to start with something small and work your way up to larger sizes as you train your sphincter with an anal training kit. This will help to increase flexibility, making anal penetration less painful. Ensure you always use plenty of water-based lube! All butt plugs have flared bases to keep the sex toy firmly anchored outside your body without the need for a harness - this avoids any horror story trips to the emergency room.
