However, purchasing your very first anal sex toy can be a daunting experience, as you may have little to no understanding of the anal toy industry, which is why we are here to help. The team at Cherry Pink has united their experience within the industry so that you can gain a better understanding of what you need to know when purchasing your first anal toys.

What are you looking to get out of it? 

Before you should begin the search for your first toy, it’s important to gain a grasp of what you are looking to get out of it. Of course, the main purpose of using an anal toy is for general satisfaction so that you are sexually pleased, but there are a few other main reasons to use anal sex toys. 

  • Dual stimulation

There are different approaches to dual stimulation, with one of the most common ways of classifying it is for simulating two erotic zones at once. This approach is traditionally used for your g-spot and clitoris, but adaptive versions have been made to include your anus and rectum. Most of these toys are for solo usage, especially for anal experiences as you will fill a complete sensation anyway without the need for additional human interaction. 

  • Preparation

It should go without saying, but one of the primary purposes of using sex toys anally is for preparation for potentially larger toys or for conventional anal sex. This is because it’s unlikely that your rectum can facilitate for an ordinary penis without practice from toys. You should always begin with smaller sizes whilst beginning to increase the size of your toys over time if you wish or are interested in performing anal sex with your partner. 

  • Give pleasure

You may also be using anal sex toys in order to give pleasure to your sexual partner. Many toys are now adapted to include this, for instance, dildos with handles, though many toys are designed solely for giving pleasure to others just like strap-ons. In recent years, there has also been an increase in modern sex toys such as remote-controlled vibrating butt plugs so that your partner can please whilst not even near you.

Different types of toys

  • Anal beads

If you are looking for a feel-good anal stimulation, then anal beads are ideal. Most beads start small and then begin to increase in size throughout the length of the dildo, meaning you can aid with preparing your rectum for additional anal toys. 

For full sensation, it’s advised that you slowly insert the beads as far as you can go and then proceed to pull them out either quickly or slowly depending on your preference. Either way, you will endure an intensive experience that you won’t experience from anything else.

  • Anal vibrators

Vibrators are one of the most popular vaginal adult toys on the market, with anal vibrators being no different. This is because you are can insert the dildo into your rectum, as well as then starting the vibration which will increase the tingling sensation that will aid you to relax and orgasm. 

  • Butt plugs

When searching for anal toys, then you would likely have already heard of butt plugs. They are favoured by both beginners and experienced toy users as they are easy to handle and facilitate. Most commonly they are used as a starting point in order to prepare the anus for sexual activities or toys that are larger, as the plug can be used for long term anal simulation. 

  • Anal dildos

You should only ever consider the use of advanced, larger dildos once you are comfortable with the previous three toys as they these often resemble penetrative anal sex much higher. This is because they are designed to primarily stimulate the prostate glands in males and the sensitive back wall of the vagina for women. 

Importance of lube

It’s also worth noting whilst purchasing your anal toy that you consider the use of lube. This is because, if you are using toys for the first time, you may find it difficult to use the toy without practice, but also without the use of lots of lube to help. 

This not only applies to just anal sex toys but also with the use of normal sex toys if needed in order to avoid injury, pain and also to increase the overall satisfaction of using sex toys.
