Why buy an anal toy? For far too many people, anal eroticism has a bad reputation. As children, we're taught that our bottoms are a "dirty place." After such an introduction, it's no wonder that back door pleasure gets such a bad rap. For the record, anal play is completely safe and completely pleasurable provided you use some common sense and a whole lot of lubricant.
The anus is a powerful erogenous zone for both women and men, particularly men because the male g-spot is reached most directly through the anus. The anus is filled with sensitive nerve endings and is inextricably linked to sexual arousal. Most of us have stumbled upon the anus as an erogenous zone at one time in our lives but because of the social stigma attached to it few of us actually stand up and celebrate it.
That's gradually changing. More and more people are experimenting with anal play as a healthy way of exploring sexual possibilities.
Anal toys are dildos and vibrators made especially for anal insertion. They are incredibly popular. Shed your inhibitions and explore the world of anal toys. You'll be glad you did.
Safe Anal Play Here are a few tips to ensure safe anal play:
Always use lubricant. The anus and rectum are not naturally lubricated like the vagina, making artificial lubrication a must. Whenever engaging in any sort of anal play, use a liberal amount of lubricant. Specific anal lubricant has the added ingredient of benzocaine, a numbing agent to help prevent any pain.
Never insert anything sharp into your anus. The rectum is lined with thin, sensitive tissue.
Make sure your anal toys have a flared base. Toys can slip in, and unlike the vagina there is no natural barrier preventing objects from traveling further up the body. Avoid an embarrassing trip to the ER.
Respect your body. If you're experimenting with anal play for the first time, go slow and be gentle.
Relax. Relaxing your sphincter is the key to enjoyable anal play.
What's a butt plug? A butt plug is quite simply a small toy that is inserted in the rectum. Once it's inserted, you can leave the butt plug in the rectum or move it in and out. Many people enjoy the sense of fullness that butt plugs bring, much in the same way many women enjoy the fullness experienced during vaginal sex. Others enjoy the sensation of inserting something in their anus. Butt plugs come in all different shapes and sizes. For newcomers to the anal scene, the sizes sometimes appear ridiculous, but anal aficionados demand satisfaction and toy companies are more than happy to oblige. The smallest, (and most popular) butt plugs are less than an inch wide and about 3.5 inches long. The small Back Door Probe exemplifies the classic design for anal stimulation, intended to be inserted anally and allowed to remain there through the course of lovemaking. From there, butt plugs increase in size to almost astronomical proportions. Beginners are advised to stick to the more modest models. If you like vibration, you can also get vibrating plugs, such as the Vibrating Pleasure Probes, which also offers a unique variation of the traditional plug design in a jelly material. These toys can provide surprising vibration to any penis inserted into the vagina during intercourse! The vagina likes to feel "full" and you can accomplish this sensation with a butt plug. If the female inserts a butt plug then resumes normal vaginal sex, her vagina will feel full and the result is pure pleasure! Plus, he'll feel the tightness in the vagina...easy way to feel like a virgin again. If the butt plug is a vibrating one, your vagina will not only be tight ~ it will vibrate for him!!
Anal Beads Anal beads are some of the most popular anal toys. These toys, which can be both soft and firm-textured, normally consist of five spheres connected with a piece of nylon cord. Another popular variant involves a series of plastic or rubber spheres connected by the same material, effectively making a "stick" of anal beads. The Black Thai Beads are a soft, flexible stick of black rubber beads, five small and five large depending on your preference. Whichever model you choose, they are a perfect toy if you're interested in exploring anal stimulation but feel hesitant to begin with something as obtrusive as a butt plug.
Anal beads are enjoyed by those who experience intense anal stimulation in the area surrounding the outer sphincter. Both males and females can find these sensations to be pleasurable because of the sensitive nerves contained in the rectum and sphincter. Some find that larger beads produce a greater stimulation and request beads as large as golf balls. Those who are trying anal beads for the first time should start small and gradually find the size best for them.
How does one use anal beads? Anal beads are a simple sex toy to use. They are inserted into the anus slowly bead by bead. Some find that the removal of the anal beads at the point of orgasm to be most delightful, while others may find that this stimulation is simply too intense. You will have to explore on your own to determine how anal beads best fit into your sex life.
If you have never used anal toys before, you may want to take a warm bath first to relax your sphincter. Relaxation and lubrication are two of the most important things to remember when using anal beads. Relaxation of the sphincter is a true skill, which some can master quickly and others cannot master at all. Relaxation of the sphincter will mean that the anal beads can be inserted with no pain at all. Lubrication is the other ingredient to satisfying anal-bead play. The rectal lining is thin and can be damaged by rough or dry objects, making lubrication necessary for safe usage.
Tip: You can use a condom with your anal beads. By placing a condom over the beads with each use you will keep you beads clean, making them safe to share with your partner.
