Adulttoymegastore’s Anal Toy Safety Guide
Experimentation with anal play using anal toys is becoming increasingly popular because it stimulates a lot of sensitive nerve endings, and while it’s a highly enjoyable sexual act, it’s imperative that people take their safety seriously.
Objects that are inserted too far into the rectum can potentially travel up into, and perforate, the bowel. Your organs are very important and while it’s great to experiment and try new things in the bedroom, your safety should always be your number one priority.
It’s important to use specially designed anal toys because people are putting their safety at risk if they don’t. Safe sex is good sex, and you can cause lasting damage if you’re not looking after yourself and keeping safety at the forefront of your mind when experimenting with anal play.
Here we answer a few burning questions about anal play safety. If you would like any further information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
What should I look for when buying an anal toy?
Only buy anal toys that have a flared base or a retrieval cord. This is essential because it’s the number one safety feature that prevents the toy from travelling too far into the rectum.
We also recommend choosing an anal toy that is made from a non-porous material such as silicone, glass or metal. These materials are high-quality and body-safe, which will reduce the chances of the toy snapping, and they are much easier to disinfect and clean. We have an entire category for anal toys, with hundreds of toys that are safe to use anally.
How can people ensure they're buying a high-quality toy?
High quality sex toys are made from non-porous materials, such as medical grade silicone, borosilicate glass, or stainless steel. Do your research when purchasing an anal toy to ensure it’s made by a trusted brand, and read the customer reviews. When it comes to sex toys, the price reflects the quality in most cases, so don’t hesitate to spend a little more for peace of mind.
How do you use anal toys safely?
Only use anal toys with a flared base to reduce the risk of the toy being inserted too far into the rectum. Lubricant should always be used, and anal toys should be thoroughly cleaned using anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner and hot water before and after each use. They should also be stored in a cloth bag or storage box, and shouldn’t be stored touching any other toys as some sex toy materials can react with each other.
Anal play beginners should start with small anal toys, such as butt plugs or anal beads, to get used to the sensation of anal play. Anal training kits are a great way to get started with anal play because they include a few different sized anal toys suited for beginners. The toy’s handle should remain outside the body at all times. Don’t let yourself or your partner get carried away by trying to push your body’s limits. Anal play takes patience, practice and care. Be mindful of your limitations, and communicate with your partner.
How do I prepare for anal play?
Whether it’s first time anal sex, playing with a butt plug, or enjoying some butt play with a partner, there are a few simple anal sex tips to get your body ready to play. Watch the video below for expert tips from sex educator and anal expert, Emma Hewitt, for preparing your body for safe and pleasurable anal play.
What are the risks from using household items for anal play?
Household items that aren’t specifically designed to be used for anal play shouldn’t be used under any circumstances. They can easily get lodged or lost inside your body, and the materials they’re made from could also break apart while inside the body. They’re also likely to be made from porous materials that can harbor bacteria.
What should I do if I get a toy stuck?
Go to your nearest Emergency Room immediately. If the handle has been lost, the object isn’t likely to be able to come out naturally by trying to “pass” it on the toilet. Emergency staff have seen it all before, and accidents happen to the best of us. Don’t hesitate to get help.
Don’t be afraid to try anal play!
People needn’t worry about the risks of anal play if they’re taking a few simple precautionary measures to ensure they’re playing safe. Invest in a quality anal toy that is the right size for your body, use lubricant, communicate with your partner, and follow good cleaning and storage practices.
