With any of these toys locked and loaded, you’ll be one step closer to activating pleasure in a hole new way. Pun absolutely intended.

Anal Toys: Butt Plugs

Butt plugs are one of the most common types of anal toys. They are best described as smaller dildo-shaped toys that you insert into your anus.

They are tapered at the top for easy entry and usually vibrate. Some are even remote controlled. You’ll also find that some have special features like nubs, ribbing, or swirls for extra sensation.

You can use these toys on their own, during couples play, or during vaginal sex. If you’re a tad beyond that back door beginner stage and have gotten comfortable with the feeling of a finger (or something of similar size) in your butt, these are great toys for taking the next step.

The B-Vibe Vibrating Rimming Butt Plug Petite

For the Beginner

This B-Vibe Butt Plug is perfect for beginners, mainly due to its size. It runs on the smaller side, so if beginning butt-play is intimidating for you, this is an approachable option.

And you don’t have to make it vibrate to enjoy all its glory. This toys is remote controlled and ultra-silent… so you can even wear one while out to dinner with your significant other (if you are feeling really frisky).

Best practices for the B-Vibe Butt Plug is to use a water-based lube for easy insertion.

Anal Toys: Beads

Anal beads are very similar to butt plugs, but are a little more advanced.

Rather than having a dildo-shape, they are a ‘string’ of beads that goes into the anus. And similar to butt plugs, many of these toys also vibrate and are compatible with both couples and solo-play.

Instead of being textured, anal beads are designed with rippled shapes for extra pleasure sensations.

The Luna Beads come with a handle for easy removal as well. This classy product is the best selling bead toy and comes with a full 1-year LELO warranty. Like the above, we always recommend water-based lubricant for easy insertion. 

Anal Toys: Prostate Massagers

These toys are different from the plugs and beads chatted about above.

Prostate massagers are designed for those who pack a prostate. This internal organ is mostly exclusive to those who were assigned male at birth (let’s not forget about intersex folk).

Best described as the equivalent of the G-spot, the prostate is no joke when it comes to climaxing. Which is why prostate massagers have gained so much popularity. In fact, without one of these bad boys messing around in the back alley, effectively stimulating the prostate may be a challenge.

The We-Vibe Vector Prostate Massager

For the Beginner

The We-Vibe Vector Prostate Massager is an excellent choice for beginners. This toy is flexible, so it can bend to the dimensions of your body. It features an internal and external component, allowing you to stimulate your prostate directly and indirectly.

This toy is also completely hands-free, as We-Vibe products are all app-enabled (this one also includes a wireless remote). You can use this toy for solo or partner play.

And don’t forget, water-based lubricant only.

The Lelo Loki Wave Prostate Massager

For the Professional

Get ready to reach climax like you’ve never before, as this Lelo Prostate Massager has quite the erotic feature. It has two components like the Vector Prostate Massager above; however, instead of simply vibrating, the internal factor moves in a ‘come hither’ motion. This both vibrates and applies pressure to your prostate.

This toy has 10 levels of stimulation and two motors, with simply designed buttons on the toy itself to control each. It is tapered for easy insertion, but of course, we recommend water-based lubricant for smooth entry.
