Introducing Anal Training for Beginners

If you're interested in anal play but are unsure how to go about it, or you're slightly frightened of the pain that might come with it, this is the anal toy guide for you!

This anal training guide will answer all the burning questions you may have about anal training, anal toys, lubrication, and the do's and don'ts of anal training.

Is anal training necessary?

You're probably thinking is anal training really that necessary? Surely I can just jump on in and get right to it? And sure it is possible, but that doesn't mean it will necessarily be pleasant! In my opinion, anyone who hasn't tried anal play before should definitely go through some basic anal training, especially when going to have anal sex, or using a realistic dildo or vibrator.

There's no denying your anus muscles are super tight and need to get used to being stretched to enjoy any kind of anal play. The word training can often be taken in a negative light, but anal training is still a pleasurable process, you just start off by using smaller sex toys or a finger.

What tools do I need for anal training?

Anal training sex toys

Anal training can be done with or without sex toys, it's up to you! Some couples prefer to use their fingers and penis as their training tool, however a lot of people prefer to use specific anal toys. The best toy for the job is multiple sized butt plugs. You can get sets between 2-5 different sized plugs and they are specifically designed for anal training. Of course you can also purchase singular plugs in different sizes if you prefer.

I recommend going for plugs that are tapered, meaning they have a narrow tip that slowly flares out to a larger size. This will help ease insertion. It's also a good idea to go for butt plugs with straight sides as it will help you get use to a more fuller feeling so when you do go to have anal sex there won't be any surprises. It's also a good idea to make sure the plug has a large base as it makes it easier to control. If you aren’t overly hyped on butt plugs, you can also opt for graduating anal beads or an anal vibrator – just make sure it is on the smaller side.

Do I need to use lubricant?

YES. With any type of anal play lubricant is a must, especially when you are just starting out. But there is a couple of things you need to keep in mind when choosing an anal lube. Most anal lubricants are silicone based, with only a handful being water-based. As silicone lubricant is thicker and lasts longer it is usually preferred for anal play. The downside is that you can't use silicone lubricant with silicone sex toys, as it will cause a reaction between the two, damaging the toy. It also can't be used with latex condoms.

However, there is water-based anal lubricant available, which may not be as thick and long lasting but are compatible with all sex toys and condoms. You may just have to reapply it more frequently. There are also a number of desensitizing anal lubes out there that have additional ingredients that numb the area, to ease pain and discomfort.

How do you Anal Train?

How do you anal train

Once you have your tools and lubricant sorted out, then the training can begin! Start with your narrowest toy (a diameter between 1" – 1.5" is good for beginners) and if using your fingers, start with your pinkie and most importantly make sure you are relaxed! Lube up the object and slowly insert it into the anus. Emphasis on the slow. This isn't the time to be thrusting!

The aim at this point is to stretch the muscles so as soon as you begin to feel comfortable (this won't happen overnight) you can gradually move up in size to a toy with a larger diameter or your index finger. This is why the anal training kits are so handy as it is all there for you ready to go. Once you have reached your desired size, swap it for a realistic dildo or have a go at anal sex!

The first time you insert something into your anus, no matter how slow you go or how relaxed you are, it's going to hurt at least a little bit. If you feel pain when inserting your first toy, stop pushing. You can either pull it back out a little, or leave it there. This will still be stretching the anus and if you want just wait till the pain subsides and try again. However, if there is still resistance, don't keep pushing as you may have the wrong angle which could cause a lot of discomfort and potential bleeding.

Are you ready to start anal training?
