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 anal toys 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!


Here is a list of the most common anal sex toys and what they do. Remember that all anal sex toys should be used with anal lubricant.

Anal Beads

Anal Beads, also known as anal pearls, are a chain of small, medium or large sized beads. They are inserted into the anus to give incredible sensations during sex or foreplay, and when slowly removed at the point of climax you can experience intense, full-body orgasms. Suited to both men and women, anal beads are great for anal play beginners or connoisseurs alike. Check out Adulttoymegastore's range of anal beads here.

Anal Training Kits

Anal Training Kits are used to prepare and train the anus to become accustomed to anal sex and anal play. Although anal sex can be enjoyable for both partners, the human body is not ready to have anal sex without preparation. By getting the anus used to anal play over time through using an anal training kit, bigger anal sex toys can eventually be used and anal sex will be more comfortable. Anal training is important to ensure the enjoyment of anal sex for both partners. Check out Adulttoymegastore's range of Anal Training Kits here.

Butt Plugs

Butt plugs, also known as anal plugs and ass plugs, are bulb-shaped toys which are inserted into the anus. They come in small, medium and large sizes, which should be selected depending on your level of experience. Designed to be worn for a short amount of time before sex, butt plugs stretch and relax the sphincter muscles. This heightens pleasure and ensures that you are prepared for anal play.

Butt Plug Tails

A Butt Plug Tailis a butt plug that has a tail attached to it, which can be made of various materials, but fur is one of the most common. When a butt plug tail is inserted, it gives the impression that the person has a tail. Usually associated with Dom/sub relationships, butt plug tails are generally used as part of BDSM play, but not always. Check out Adulttoymegastore's range of Butt Plug Tails here.

Anal Vibrators

An anal vibrator is a vibrator designed for sexual stimulation of the anus of both men and women. Basically, all anal vibrators have one common feature - they produce a vibrating effect in the rectum for pleasurable sensations. Anal vibrators are great for anal play lovers who want even more stimulation during anal play sessions. Check out Adulttoymegastore's range of Anal Vibrators here.

Tunnel Butt Plugs

Tunnel Butt Plugs, also known as anal tunnel plugs, are molded butt plugs with a tunnel through them. The tunnel opens your butt to all kinds of fun and kinky things. Designed for more advanced and experienced butt plug users, you can check out Adulttoymegastore's range of Tunnel Butt Plugs here.
