What are the rest of you guys doing? Give it a try!
Here, maybe this will help. Today we’re looking at the Best Anal Toys in 2022.
We’ve got butt plugs, dildos, beads, and vibrators.
Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?
Let’s jump right in with my Top 3 Picks. These are toys everyone should have in their anal arsenal.
Best For Beginners
The overall best anal toy for beginners has to be the Mood Naughty Trainer Kit. It’s a handy set of comfortable butt plugs that can train you to take bigger objects later. They feel great, and they’re amazing value for money.
Best Anal Dildo
If you want something dick-shaped, Vixen Mustang gives you a whole lot of realism. Its dual-density silicone feels like real skin and is easy on your skin but firm enough to thrust with. And it comes in some beautiful colors!
Mood Naughty Trainer Kit
Lovehoney Classic Anal Beads
Butt plugs, AKA anal plugs, are usually shaped like a bulb with a thin neck, fatter body, and a flared base. They’re worn to stretch the sphincter to train and prepare it for anal sex. Or just for fun.
If you want to see more check out best butt plugs guide.
Butt plugs are probably the best way to get into anal play, and the Mood Naughty Trainer Kit is the best way to get into butt plugs.
For under $30 you get three plugs. The smallest is thin and short enough to be easy for even virgin sphincters.
Once you’ve gotten used to that you can move on to the larger sizes for a more filling sensation.
Each of the plugs is gradually tapered, which makes them easier to insert. And they have thin necks, so your sphincter can relax and get used to having them inside.
You can even wear them for hours if you want to try that out (use lots of lube).
And they all have a wide flared T-base so there’s no risk of them disappearing up your butt. (That’s important.)
The T-base might get in the way a bit during sex, so if you want something specifically to wear while your partner penetrates your free hole then you might want to try something with a smaller base.
But for everyone else who wants to dip their toe into the butt… wait no that sounds weird let me rephrase.
For everyone else who wants to dive head-first into an ocean of butts… no that’s worse.
It’s the perfect set for beginners.
This thing has it all. It’s a marvel of butt engineering.
At first glance, it’s a pretty typical bulb-shaped plug. It’s got quite a fat bulge of 1.5 inches (or 1.75 for the larger option) and a total length of 3.8”.
That’s too big for total beginners, but anyone with some anal experience won’t find it too challenging or special.
Until you switch it on.
Lovense Hush has a remote control, or you can connect it via Bluetooth or the internet to your smartphone.
So your partner can control the vibrations.
And what vibrations they are. The Hush has the most powerful, rumbliest vibrations of any butt plug I’ve ever seen. It’s incredible.
Surprisingly quiet on the lower settings, too. You can wear it outside at up to half power and no one would be any the wiser.
What’s more, the Lovense app gives you a ton of options for use. There’s remote control, sure, but also sound-activated, customizable patterns, and even musical sync!
The thickness and price of the Hush mean it probably won’t be the first butt plug you ever buy, but it’s so good that it could very well be the last.
The shape might be a little intimidating at first – they call it a torpedo shape – but don’t let that put you off.
The Snug Plug from B-Vibe is one of the most comfortable and ergonomically designed anal toys out there.
The pointy tip makes it easy to insert, and the shape fits your rectum snug and securely without stretching anything out uncomfortably.
At least when you’re using the small sizes. The larger sizes will give your butthole some tough love, no doubt about that.
There are 6 sizes to choose from, going from an adorable 3.4 x 0.8 inches to a beefy 6.3 x 2.2.
They’re heavier than they look, too. That’s thanks to the weights packed inside the plugs. A heavier plug feels more intense and makes you feel more full, which is something you want.
And they’re all seamless silicone, waterproof and have an easy-grip t-base.
It doesn’t get much more comfortable than the Snug Plug.
While butt plugs are designed to be inserted and left in the ass for some time, most of the pleasure of anal beads comes from removing them. It can be so intense that some people can orgasm just from that sensation.
They’re a set of spheres attached together by a sting of some kind. Pretty often the size of the beads increases the further down you go, to add to the sensation.
If you wanna know more about them and peruse some more choices, take a look at the best anal beads here.
With 9 beads going from tiny to pretty girthy, and a grand total of 10 inches of toy to play around with, these silicone beads give you plenty of fun for a small investment.
These beads are in wand-style, meaning at rest they lie in a straight line.
The string between them is very flexible which means you can play with angles easily.
(Pulling them out at a 90-degree angle is a different sensation to a straight line. Just a little tip for ya.)
Since they’re so flexible they will curl up and gather inside the rectum, so don’t worry about the 10 inches of length – you won’t get it up that far unless you’re trying to!
That flexibility does also mean that the first few beads can be hard to insert, so remember to be patient and take it slow. The teasing slow speed makes it more intense of a build-up, anyway.
And once you’re ready to take them out, the ring pull is super handy and big enough to prevent them from getting lost up the sphincter.
Sometimes a cheap, simple design is all you need. It’s hard to imagine anal beginners regretting buying these.
Just look at these for a second. Aren’t they gorgeous? I’m a big fan of aesthetic in my sex toys, and these are just so stylish I can’t help but want to use them.
The elegant curves and ridges aren’t just for show, either. They make the insertion and removal more intense with extra things to feel.
That, combined with the rough texture, makes the Bendy Beads a wilder ride than the Lovehoney beads above.
They have the perfect balance of firmness and flexibility to make insertion and removal as easy as you want. If you’re gonna use these on your partner, then you can enjoy perfect control over speed of insertion and removal.
It’s even firm enough that you can thrust them in and out a bit like a dildo, so that’s an extra potential function for those of you who like a bit more versatility in your sex toys.
You’ll love the Bendy Beads if you like beautiful design and a rougher, more intense sensation.
If you want the orgasmic removal you get from anal beads combined with vibrations, keep reading.
The Tantus Vibrating Progressive has 4 beads about an inch away from each other. The string is very flexible so you can pull them out at different angles like with the Lovehoney beads.
The silicone blend is super-soft and glidey so they feel really luxurious going in and out.
And they vibrate! You don’t need super-strong vibrations to enjoy anal beads, so these ones are about medium strength. Not too much to distract from the beads themselves, but enough to enhance the feeling.
The only downside is that they take traditional batteries. Not very eco-friendly but oh well. Just make sure you have spares.
And it’s got an easy-grip T-base so you can take them out smoothly.
Any guesses what an anal dildo might be?
Correct, it’s a dildo that goes in the butt.
While any body-safe material dildo can be used for anal, some are more suited for the task than others. Like these three in particular.
And if three suggestions aren’t enough, check our anal dildos guide.
Dual-density silicone is one of the best materials for an anal dildo because it has the two things you want in perfect balance.
A soft, squishy outside means it’s gentle on the delicate skin of the rectum. And it pairs really well with lube.
But you also want a firm core so you can push it in more easily. A floppy dildo is harder to get in through the tough butt muscles, even with a lot of lube.
So the Vixen Mustang is perfect for the job. The dual-density has the consistency of a real dick, with moveable “skin” over a rigid core that’s ideal for thrusting action.
Vixskin is pretty much the best dual-density silicone blend in the world (unless you want to spend an insane amount of money for the RealCock).
The Mustang has a nice elegant curve that slides in easily, and a lovely corona that massages the internal canal for some amazing feeling.
Just remember to store it upright and away from other silicone toys as they will warp the Mustang’s material. You don’t want it getting deformed, do you?
Trust me, you don’t. It’s too pretty and feels too good.
The Vixen Mustang is a brilliant dildo. But it’s pretty expensive and also quite big, especially if you’re new to putting things in your butt.
Enter the Real Nude Ergo.
It has a nice pronounced head that stimulates the anal cavity really nicely and can massage the prostate (if you have one of those).
It also has a suction cup, although it’s not the best. If you want to ride it then your ass will pull it off the ground quite easily unless you have an extremely smooth surface like a bathtub.
But at this price, you can’t fault the Ergo. It’s incredible value for a dual-density dildo.
That kind of silicone design is expensive because it’s harder to make, so to find a quality dildo this cheap and this good is amazing.
And now we go from small and cute to “Good Lord what a monster.”
Measuring in at a whopping 11 inches and change long and about 8 inches in circumference, this leviathan is not for the faint of heart.
And that’s the smallest size.
Clearly, XXXCalibur is not for beginners, but it’s super well-designed for anal play.
It’s got a nice body-conforming curve and a tapered tip that slides in quite easily.
The veiny texture feels fantastic and adds some realistic sensation to thrusts.
And while it will definitely stretch you out, there’s no impossible bulge that will split you open. Once you get past the initial shock it’s pretty smooth sailing.
You can choose from medium-firm or 75% softness. That means either real hard penis firmness or about 75% of that. They both feel great in your hand and inside you.
So if you’re looking to upgrade both in size and quality, XXXCalibur might be the sword for your stone (the stone is your butt. Obviously).
Like with dildos, you can use many vibrators for anal play, but if you want something best suited to the task check these recommendations out. Or check the best anal vibrators guide for even more.
The Vedo Bump has one of those beginner-friendly shapes that makes anal play a breeze to get started with.
A round but firm tip and tapered bulb that doesn’t bulge means even the tightest of inexperienced butts will be able to take it in with no fuss.
It has a remote control you can give to your partner for some power exchanging fun, or just use it yourself for greater convenience.
The Bump is rechargeable and lasts up to 80 minutes on a single charge, which is pretty decent for a toy this size. Smaller size means less room for batteries, after all.
And the recessed power button is low-key genius. It means you can sit on the Bump and even rock back and forth, and you won’t accidentally turn it off. It happens more often than you think with other toys.
So if you like the idea of the Lovense Hush but the size or price intimidates you, the Vedo Bump makes a great intermediate option.
For the same price as a regular budget butt plug, you can get the delightfully named Butt Tingler.
It has all of the regular features of a silicone butt plug but it vibrates! Extra fun.
Inside the Butt Tingler, there’s a removable bullet vibrator, which you can of course use separately.
There are 2 vibration speeds and 3 different patterns to play around with.
The Butt Tingler takes a single AAA battery, so make sure you have some spare.
The silicone body is firm and tapered so it’s easy to insert and remove, and there’s a moderately thick neck that helps gently stretch and vibrate your sphincter. The vibes travel nicely and stimulate all the way through.
If you want to spice things up with a plug that’s cheap, cheerful, and fun, the Butt Tingler has everything you need.
P-spot (AKA prostate) toys differ from regular butt plugs in their shape and target.
The Tantus P-Spot is a prime example. It has a bulbous, angled head that reaches up and perfectly places pressure pleasantly on the prostate (hey look I made a tongue twister).
It’s made of smooth, firm silicone that feels lovely to the touch both in your hands and in your butt.
There’s a removable bullet vibrator so you have the option of adding some extra buzz.
The larger head circumference means it’s not the best choice for anyone new to prostate massage.
But if you’ve had a bit of practice and want a toy to take your exploration to the next level, Tantus has you covered.
How To Choose Anal Toys
There are two main things to look out for when you’re shopping for a new anal toy:
What’s it made of, and what do you want it to do?
We’ve already seen the different kinds of anal toys above, so let’s consider materials now.
Material affects how much a toy costs, how durable and body-safe it is, and how it feels inside you.
We can split them up into two broad categories: softer and harder.
Silicone is one of the most common materials for any sex toy, including butt toys. It’s non-porous and body-safe, which means bacteria can’t get into it and it doesn’t leach harmful chemicals out.
It’s fairly soft and flexible most of the time. Exactly how soft? Depends on the manufacturer’s recipe, but much more springy than metal or glass.
Good silicone is also temperature-resistant, so you can warm it up or cool it down for temperature play.
And cleaning and maintenance are a breeze! It doesn’t get damaged by soap, toy cleaner, or even being boiled. Just avoid silicone-based lube and you’re golden.
Some anal toys are made of rubber, usually when they want something softer and more pliable than silicone.
Rubber is cheaper, but it’s less safe for the body. Many rubber blends contain allergens or chemicals that can leach out into you via your anal cavity.
It also makes it harder to clean properly. You can’t boil it or use harsh soaps.
So use a condom on your rubber toys, or better yet just stick to silicone where possible.
These materials have a harder appearance and assert more pressure when used.
Some of the common ones include:
ABS plastics get used mostly on the body casings of toys. But several anal toys consist of only this material.
ABS is tough, firm, and generally safe to use (as long as it’s from a reputable manufacturer).
It’s pretty easy to clean, just with soap and water. And it’s much cheaper than metal or glass. Speaking of…
Glass is gorgeous, there’s no denying it. Many of the most beautiful anal toys are made of glass.
Borosilicate glass is very tough, sturdy, and smooth. It plays well with any kind of lubricant and is safe for anybody to use.
Glass anal toys make a handy tool for temperature play during BDSM. And maintaining them is relatively easy as you can clean them any way you want.
Also very pretty, a lot of anal lovers adore metal toys because they’re heavy. That weight makes you feel more filled, which is extremely satisfying.
And like glass, they’re also great to use in temperature play because they conduct heat well.
Also, cleaning them is an easy process as most of them are waterproof.
Just make sure you get stainless steel wherever possible. Some less than scrupulous manufacturers use inferior alloys that degrade over time.
Stone And Wood
Wooden toys aren’t the best option if you like to keep your tools clean. And it is because wood is highly porous and can retain lots of liquid and solid dirt. They look good but are best avoided for anal stuff.
Stone models are scarce and hard to come across. But still, they do make some beautiful toys with great aesthetics.
Q: Are anal sex toys safe?
A: Yeah, as long as you get the right one and it’s made of good materials. You can also put a condom on your anal toy to make it safer, if you plan on sharing your toy with someone else or if it’s made of a porous material like wood, plastic, or jelly. Here are our top 3 best condoms for anal.
Q: How to prepare to use anal toys?
A: Anal Douches are the most popular and best ways to prepare your anus for some fun and avoid unpleasant surprises. Apart from that, wash your butt crack thoroughly like you normally do before any anal play starts.
Q: How do I clean my anal toys properly?
A: It depends on the material. Silicone, glass, and metal are all easy. Just wash them in soapy water or a light bleach solution if you’re really anal about anal cleanliness.
Q: How to use anal toys for beginners?
Anal doesn’t have to be scary! Just remember to do your research, prepare well, and relax.
