Booty for your Booty!
Welcome in, anal enthusiasts! Today, we’re here to open the (back) door to all of the wonderful tools to add to your treasure chest of booty for your booty!
First things first: SAFETY. You want to ensure that any toy that you are using for anal play has a flared base- meaning that the base of the toy is significantly larger than the rest of the toy, so that when inserted there is always an anchor that keeps the toy partially outside of the body for easy retrieval. Where some toys may have a string or cord attached (like kegel exercisers) they still may not have a flared base, and so are not anal safe.
Second: LUBE. The butt doesn’t self-lubricate, so you want to make sure to use an ample amount of lubricant on your toys for comfortable and safe play. For the non-rubber toys we recommend either using a silicone lube or a thick water-based gel, as they are both OK to use, but for toys made of silicone just stick to something water-based, like Slippery Stuff Gel.
Now here are the types of toys to help get your rear in gear!
The most popular type of booty toy, anal plugs are just how they sound- plug-shaped toys that are meant to be worn inside the body during play. Though most plugs are designed to stay put, some may be used to rock into the prostate- like the NJoy Pure Plugs. There are also plugs that add stimulation through vibration, like the Princette Puppypus, and even plugs that stimulate the rim of the anus with rotating internal beads, like the b-Vibe Rimming Plug!
Anal beads are perfect for those who are looking to start their foray into butt play. With most beads having a gradual increase in size as the beads reach the base- like the Cheeky Beads- you can start off by inserting the beads one at a time to gauge how your (or your partner’s) body is feeling. Beads are meant to give the most sensation when inserted and removed, stimulating the body with a pleasurable “pop” sensation as each bead enters or leaves the body. Pro-tip: taking out anal beads as the body is reaching or experiencing orgasm to really rev up the experience.
Most dildos have a flared base designed to help anchor them in a harness, which makes them great for anal play as well. Whether you’re playing solo or getting down with some pegging, dildos can be a great way to play with penetration. Dildos with a heavier curve or a prominent head are especially great for hitting the P-spot, like the Bullseye. Some dildos have bendable spines to angle just where you like it, like these. Some may even have Suction Cup Bases so that you can stick them to a flat surface and push back on it. Just remember, if you’re going to be playing with the same toy anally and vaginally, use a condom or clean your toy thoroughly before going back to front.
These toys, though designed specifically with the prostate in mind, are great for any booty! Prostate stimulators are toys that can come in plug-style, like the Aneros, to something more handheld like the We-Vibe Nova 2. One thing that sets these toys apart from other categories that they may share similarities with is the presence of a heavy curve meant to target the P-spot, as well as an external piece meant to add vibration or pressure against the perineum (aka the taint, the space between the genitals and anus) in order to stimulate the P-spot both externally and internally.
Remember, all of these toys come in different shapes and sizes, so feel free to explore your back door and focus on what’s the right toy for your tush!
