But which anal toy should you use? This guide summarises all the different types of anal sex toys you can buy and what their points of difference are, which will help you to make an informed decision when buying your next anal toy.

What is an Anal Sex Toy?

Anal sex toys are adult toys designed to stimulate the anal regions of users. Anyone with an anus can use an anal sex toy, and they usually have a flared base to ensure they do not travel too far up the rectum.

What kinds of Anal Sex Toys are there?

There are all sorts of anal sex toys available, but anal plugs (butt plugs) and anal beads are the most common types of anal toys. We recommended that anal play beginners start with a small anal sex toy, such as a small butt plug, anal egg, or anal beads, to get used to the sensation of anal play.

Once this is comfortable, many people enjoy playing with larger and more intense toys like dildos, prostate massagers, anal vibrators and more!

Butt plug anal toys

Here's a list of the most common anal sex toys and what they do in more depth. Remember that all anal sex toys should be used with anal lubricant. However, don't use silicone lubricant with silicone anal toys as the materials can react with one another and reduce the lifespan of the toy.
