If you want to go deep from behind, then this comprehensive anal-depth training guide is what you are looking for!

There are only two possible explanations as to why you clicked on this article.

The first one: you have done your fair share of anal training, anal stretching, and anal dildos — and you are now looking for a new challenge.

The second one: you are not quite sure what anal depth training even is, but you are curious to find out. Plus, it sounds like something that you might possibly enjoy.

In either case, you’ve landed on the right page. Let’s jump straight into it.

What Is Anal Depth Training?

Anal depth training is a sexual practice that involves inserting objects as deep into the anal cavity as possible. The goal is to reach and then get past the sigmoid bend.

Unlike stretching or fisting, anal depth play is only concerned with the length rather than the girth of the inserted objects.

Why Do People Like Deep Anal Training?

To be fair, most people don’t. Depth training is one of the most extreme forms of anal play and is definitely a niche fetish.

So keep this in mind when learning how to anally masturbate.

The people who are into deep anal generally fall under two categories. 

On the one hand, we have the anal aficionados who have seen and done it all and are now looking for new challenges. 

On the other hand, we have BDSM enthusiasts. You often hear about dominants who order their submissives to probe deeper and deeper into their anal canal as part of consensual humiliation or power play. 

One thing that these two groups have in common is that both get a powerful kick out of pushing their bodies to the limit.

How To Prepare For Anal Depth Training?

So, have you decided to give anal depth training a try? 

You’ll need these to get started: lube and a few long anal toys (however, you can always start with just one and see how that goes before getting more).

Stock Up On Lube

Just like with any form of anal play, you want to stock up on lube, and you can’t ever have too much.

As you will be using a special tool such as a Slink, an anal snake, or a depth probe, make sure that your lube is compatible with the material of your toy.


You should use water-based lube with silicone toys. 


LELO Personal Moisturizer

For those acquainted with LELO and its products, you might have heard of their Personal Moisturizer. It’s a hybrid water-based lube, safe to use with latex condoms and vibrating toys, complete with a formula suitable for even the most delicate complexions. It has a pump-top design with ingredients such as aloe, making you feel all-natural and long-lasting every night.

It’s on the pricier side. But a single bottle could last you for several months, granted that you’re not pumping it up like crazy daily. This product is a definite recommendation, especially for sensitive and dryer-than-usual skin.

Find The Right Long & Deep Anal Toys For You

While there are many anal depth training products on the market (see more here), these are by far our top choices. As a rule of thumb, you want a toy that’s long, slim, bendable, and has a tapered tip.

1. SquarePeg Slink

This is our absolute favorite depth training dildo. It’s extra-long, super-squishy, and features a tapered tip that’s perfect for exploring far up the anal canal.

Plus, it comes in five different sizes ranging from 11.5 to 23.5 inches of insertable length that should fit most body types. 

2. SquarePeg Colon Snake

If you need something longer than 23.5 inches, how about this not-so-little fella?

Its whopping 40 inches worth of insertable length make it a great choice for more advanced anal depth players. 

3. Doc Johnson Anal Snake

Measuring at 19.5 inches of insertable length, Doc Johnson’s Kink In Deep Silicone Anal Snake is an excellent mid-sized alternative.

It is made out of soft, body-safe silicone and features a slightly ridged surface that ensures a secure grip and makes for some truly delicious friction.

Tantus Anal Snake

4. Tantus Anal Snake

Let’s bring in the heavyweights, shall we? SquarePeg’s Depth Probe Colon Snake is absolutely MASSIVE.

The largest of the three available sizes measures at 39.96 inches of insertable length! If you’ve got what it takes to get that up to your butt, you won’t be disappointed with this product.

Rosebud Anal Suction Cylinder

5. Rosebud Anal Suction Cylinder

This high-quality anal pump is one of the best anal pumps out there. This won’t even fail, defor, or even break when under pressure.

This has the most simplest design and purpose.

And guess what? This is perfect for newcomers to anal pumps! This is a great buy for newcomers to experience a different kind of anal play.

How To Get Started & What Is The Best Technique To Go Deep?

When it comes to depth training, you should begin by following standard anal play protocol: give yourself an enema, sanitize your toys (learn how to clean anal toys), and make sure you are fully relaxed and warmed up. 

So far, so good. What next? 

Relax Your Puborectalis Sling

Pubo- what?

Don’t panic. The puborectalis sling1 is a powerful muscle that’s attached to the pubic bone and surrounds the rectum like a sling.

When you apply pressure on it, such as during anal sex, this muscle automatically contracts and closes the rectum.

Learning to relax the puborectalis sling through breathing exercises and repeated internal stimulation is the secret to effective anal depth training.

Program Yourself To Associate Deep Anal Pressure With Pleasure

If you are a beginner, deep anal pressure is an unusual sensation that both your body and your brain are not accustomed to. At first, it might not even feel pleasurable but rather weird. 

Your goal with deep anal training is to learn to relax the body and breathe into the various internal sensations that you are experiencing.

Eventually, you will start to find this type of stimulation pleasant and even arousing. 

Be Gentle But Consistent

Once you get to your sigmoid bend, start applying gentle but persistent pressure — and don’t stop. It’s all very simple, but it requires quite a bit of time and patience.

It may take hours or even weeks before the sigmoid bend gives in and lets you pass through. 

Eventually, however, you will be able to not only get past the sigmoid bend but also start thrusting your toy (instead of just probing around with it). 

Always remember, though: be super gentle. Don’t force your way up, or you risk serious injuries. The key to success is persistence. 

Positioning Is Important

Let’s talk about a couple of positions that can ease your discomfort and let you enjoy yourself more as you go into the depths of anal ecstasy.

Laying On Your Back

People often prefer to lie on their backs with their posteriors propped up. Many people report feeling their inside muscles relax while in it. Instead of forcing a toy inside, it seems as though gravity is softly dropping it.

Laying On Your Side

Laying on one’s side with one’s knees bent is also an excellent option. This position will allow you to safely and easily access your rectum without straining your back. And it could also help you unwind and tune into your body’s feelings.

Face Down

Is your playmate up for lending a hand? In that case, it’s preferable if they insert a toy when you’re resting on your back. Even if you can’t access your rectum, they most certainly can. Plus,  the lack of stress you’ll experience in this role is a significant benefit.

In The Tub or Shower

There can be stressful situations if you’re that preoccupied about potentially making a mess everywhere. And one way to avoid that is to put it in, standing up as you take a long, relaxing shower or soak in your tub.

The only possible drawback is the difficulty of preserving oil-based lubricants from being washed away or diluted. Though if you wish to utilize the bathroom for anal depth training, you should avoid spraying water up into yourself.

How Deep Should You Penetrate Your Anus

It is possible to penetrate your hole deeply. But how far an anal stretch can go depends on the individual. The average depth of the anal canal is five inches (12 cm). But it can take a foot or more if the conditions are correct.

When fisting, you can push an entire hand or upper arm far into the anus. However, once again, your physical condition may prevent you from doing so.

When you first begin training for anal depth, it’s not helpful to set an arbitrary goal for yourself to achieve. Just go with the flow and see what happens.

Is there a pleasant sensation? If that’s the case, then your efforts have been greatly rewarded. The journey, not the final destination, is what matters most.

Dangers And Safety Precautions

Anal depth training is extreme. As such, it has more inherent health and safety risks than your standard anal practices. Here’s what you should know before starting your foray into depth play.

Use Plenty of Lube

I will never get tired of repeating this one. Not only is your asshole more delicate than a vagina, but it also gets more and more delicate the farther up you go. 

That’s why you want to use obscene amounts of lube to make sure that you don’t end up with internal tears. 

Listen To Your Body

You should expect some pressure and discomfort during your anal depth training. You might even get off on that. 

However, you should NOT be feeling any pain whatsoever. You will be going too far up your colon to take any risks.

Another thing to keep in mind is that while your intestines are very sensitive to pressure, they are not quite as good at sensing pain.

That means it’s possible to go a little too rough on them and not even realize it. So, keep things slow, steady, and gentle — and know when enough is enough.

Choose High-Quality Toy Material

A lot of the deep anal toys out there are made of porous materials such as jelly, PVC, TPE, and TPR. Stay away from those; they are impossible to fully sanitize.

You’ll be introducing your toy way too deep into your body to be taking any chances. 

The only 100% non-porous, body-safe, and bendable material is silicone. That’s what you want to stick with.

Go For A Flared Base

All anal toys should have a flared base to prevent them from being sucked up your butt.

However, this is particularly important when it comes to depth training. The toy will be going very far up, and the risk of sucking it in is real. 

Other People’s Experiences And Suggestions

“You want thin, soft, and extremely lubed toys. Buy a shower enema kit. […] Also, buy a lube shooter, […], and lube the hell out of yourself. Don’t be shy to get it d e e p inside of yourself.

Finally, lube the entire inner cheek of your asshole, I’ve found that sometimes when I’m ‘stuck,’ it’s because the toy is dragging on dry flesh, the damn inner cheek.

Have fun, and go slow. Try not to touch your dick if that’s what you’re working with, it might help you initially, but I find after I cum, I don’t want anything in there anymore, and it stops [the] play. If I delay that as long as possible, though, I can get up to 18’’ inside.”

Wiggle: Because you’re trying to get a relatively firm rod into a curvaceous tunnel, you’re going to have to re-route the tunnel. Wiggling and rocking back and forth on toys can really help to get past that wall.

You’re basically trying to bend the toy (and yourself) just enough so that the head […] isn’t just ramming straight into a wall anymore. You’ll probably (and hopefully) get the most mileage out of this tip. Squirm, wiggly, rock, whatever it takes to bend yourself until it fits, but it should help.

The ecstasy trick: No drugs required! What I found from personal experience with depth training was that I was way more open (heh) to going deeper when I was really horny (especially so when I was right on the edge.) I’d take what I comfortably could inside of me, and as I got closer and closer, I would push just a bit harder, despite feeling like I couldn’t realistically take anymore.

Not only did it feel amazing going for those last few pushes, but in doing this, I could often take 1–2 more inches. The adrenaline really does help.”
