How to Use Anal Beads > How To Articles > Anal Sex

Anal beads are designed to stimulate the sensitive anus without the size or girth of a butt plug or dildo. Lubricate the beads and string with one of our anal sex lubricants and gently slip the beads into the anus. Holding onto the ring on the end of the string will keep them from getting lost.

Grasp the ring and slowly side the beads out. Some people prefer to do this as they get close to orgasm, while others enjoy doing it during orgasm. You can also experiment with pulling them out slowly or more quickly, although don't go so fast that you can't savor the sensations.

Before your first use, run the pads of your fingers over each bead to make sure there are no sharp "tags" or seams left over from the molding process. If there are, use a nail file to file the points smooth. Prior to each use, check the knot below the last bead to make sure that it is tied securely.

To clean anal toys, scrub with a mild soap and hot water, paying special attention to the cord. Plastic anal beads cannot be sterilized, and therefore it is strongly recommended that the beads not be shared, and that they be thrown away after three or four uses.

If you like anal beads and want to own a longer lasting silicone toy with a beaded sensation, try the Romeo or Cassanova anal toys.
