Anal sex and exploration are no longer the dark taboos they used to be. Single men and women, as well as couples, are now enjoying the orgasmic fruits of probing their anuses during masturbation, foreplay and sex. Anal sex toys will help you during all three of these pleasurable activities.
Anal sex toys are many, comprising endless delights including anal beads, butt plugs, prostate massagers, anal probes, anal vibrators, inflatable butt plugs, douches and enemas and so much more. If you have been craving anal stimulation but don't quite know where to start, this handy guide to anal sex toys will put you on the right path to adding an exciting new dynamic to your sex life.
Whether strung together on a flexible piece of cord, fixed to a rigid probe for hardcore thrusting, or attached to a vibrating bullet for extra thrills, anal beads are the ultimate beginner's anal sex toy. Available in a wide variety of sizes to open your anus up slowly, anal beads come in silicone, rubber, jelly, plastic and latex materials and can be used with lubricants, condoms and sex toy cleaner. Ideal for accentuating your point of orgasm (whip them out of your anus just as you reach the point of orgasm), anal beads are dead simple to use yet highly effective. If you want to start off gently, choose standard anal beads that have small beads graduating upwards in size. If you want something with a little more attitude, choose vibrating anal beads.

Sitting at the apex of anal sex toys are butt plugs. These discreet and affordable backdoor playmates will open your anus up gently, making room for you to accommodate bigger anal sex toys or even your partner's penis. Butt plugs are lots of fun and can be made from a wide range of materials including glass and metal, both of which are suitable for use during temperature play (warm them up or cool them down in water to see how different temperatures enhance your orgasms). Some butt plugs are textured for internal massage and some are inflatable so that you can experiment with different sizes during use, but you will find that the majority of butt plugs have tapered bodies for supreme penetrative comfort.

Anal lubes and oils are somewhat different to 'normal' lubricants and sex oils. For the most part, they are much thicker because anal skin is thin and sensitive, meaning it's easier to irritate.

Cleanliness is of paramount importance to boosting your prowess and confidence during anal sex and exploration. It goes without saying that if you are confident in your anal hygiene, you'll be much more open to pushing the boundaries of what you experience during your anal encounters. Douches and enemas are essential accessories for helping you practise anal hygiene. That said, douches and enemas are highly enjoyable 'sex toys' in themselves, dishing out exquisite water squirting sensations directly into your back passage. Prices range from minus £10 to nearly £100, such is the demand for variety of douches and enemas. Suffice to say, if you want to have fun cleaning your anus before you hit the bedroom you will need one of these.

Inflatable Butt Plugs
A key feature of inflatable butt plugs is, of course, how you can vary their size before you insert them into your anus as well as when they're actually inside you. Versatile and ideal for people who can't choose between specific butt plug sizes, inflatable butt plugs will grow with you – as you become more accustomed to anal penetration you can simply pump your butt plug up to a bigger length and girth. Inflatable butt plugs vary in design and come in a range of colours and materials. Some inflatable butt plugs are shaped like penises, while others are the more traditional tapered shape. Either way, these flexible anal sex toys will bring you unbridled pleasure when you want it.

Keeping your prostate gland in good health has never been easier nor more sexually rewarding. Thanks to a new generation of anal sex toys called prostate massagers, you can ensure good personal prostate health while also working towards one of the most explosive orgasms you will ever have: a p-spot orgasm. Way more intense than orgasms generated through stimulation of your penis alone, prostate massagers will help you milk your prostate so that eventually you will be able to orgasm without even touching your penis. Expertly designed with comfort in mind, prostate massagers usually feature a shorter arm with a rounded tip to slip inside and massage your prostate, along with an external arm baring textured nubs or a steel ball to stimulate your perineum.
