We created this crafty little guide to help you decide which anal toys are right for you and your partner.

Anal Beads

If you think you know what they are by the name, you’re probably right. Anal beads are a row of silicone or ABS plastic beads that range in size. Once inserted into the anus, they’re slowly pulled out while climaxingit stimulates the anal sphincter muscles for more intensity.

Non-Vibrating Anal Beads

Coming in all different sizes, they’re amazing for beginners. This beginner friendly sex toy is incredibly versatile and give users a taste of anal play without going full out. They can also be used for advanced anal play to increase anal stimulation. It’s a great anal sex toy for anyone.

Vibrating Anal Beads

So think of them like regular anal beads, only with a vibrating feature. But I’m not trying to downplay them. The vibrations give added stimulation. You can use a water-based lube like Kiiroo’s Aqua lubricant for smooth entry.

Prostate Toys

It’s important not to forget the prostate. Similar to the g-spot, the prostate is stimulated by massage or vibration.

Non-Vibrating Prostate Massagers

A non-vibrating prostate massager is small in size and designed to help relax the anus. They’re great for beginners engaging in anal or even the pros as a non-vibrating prostate massager stimulates the nerve endings and gently strokes the prostate.

Vibrating Prostate Massagers

Similar to a non-vibrating prostate massager, a vibrating prostate massager is used to stimulate the anal nerve endings but with vibration. It’s a great vibrating anal sex toy for butt play, regardless of your experience.

Lumen interactive butt plug


I know you know what a dildo is—a phallic-shaped toy that's inserted into the anus. Unlike any other anal sex toy, for anal stimulation, dildos need to be manually thrust in and out of the anus.

Anal Dildos

Dildos can be used for any hole and come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes. But for anal sex, you need to be cautious. You want to make sure your dildo has a flared base to prevent it from being...err...sucked in. So, always make sure your anal sex toy is designed to stimulate you the right way and has a flared base.

Anal Probes

You or your partner may be interested in trying out an anal dildo but want to work up to that level of anal play—it's totally understandable. An anal probe is the beginner's dildo. They're long and narrows anal sex toy that offers a taste into what a dildo would feel like. So, if you're a beginner, starting off with this sex toy is a good idea (oh, and use lots of lube).

Pegging Sets

The odds are you’ve heard of pegging. You may not know exactly what it means, but you’ve heard of it. Pegging is when one partner wears a body-safe strap-on dildo to penetrate their partner. Pegging sets usually include one or more flared base dildos and a strap-on harness.

Butt Plugs

Well, we can’t talk about anal sex toys without mentioning butt plugs, can we? If you’re looking for extra anal stimulation, then a butt plug may be your go-to option.

Weighted Butt Plugs

Designed with a small weight inside, they give the feeling of fullness when inserted. They don’t necessarily vibrate, so you can wear them in and out of the bedroom.

Vibrating Butt Plugs

Rule of thumb: a vibrating anal sex toy is a beginner’s best friend. A vibrating butt plug relaxes the anal sphincter muscles, making it a more pleasurable experience for the receiver. A vibrating butt plug also stimulates the g-spot or p-spotso it’s a real win-win when it comes to stimulating sensitive nerves.

Inflatable Butt Plugs

An inflatable butt plug is like any other butt plug, only you need to inflate it. It's inserted into the anus in its original size and then pumped up to expand the anal sphincter muscles. A great option if size turns you on.

Glass and Metal Butt Plugs

If you want something that feels a little harder than soft silicone, your best bet is to try a glass or a stainless steel metal anal plug. They’re more direct with anal stimulation as well.

Textured Butt Plugs

If you’re over the regular anal plug, then step up your game with a body-safe textured butt plug. The added texture adds new stimulation when engaging in anal. For example, the Lumen butt plug is ribbed for increased pleasure. Pair your butt plug with a water-based lube (don’t be cheapuse lots of lube) for an effortless experience.

Tail Butt Plugs

If you're into pet play, you can add a tail butt plug into your repertoire for a more authentic experience. Tail butt plugs can spice up your anal sex routine and usually come in body-safe materials, including silicone, metal, and glass (for non-soft silicone lovers).

Jeweled Butt Plugs

Is a jeweled butt plug different from the other butt plugs on the market? No. But they're a nice touch for people who like the idea of something shiny and sparkly in their butt. Jeweled butt plugs come in a wide range of different colors and materials. But be careful about what they are made of, crystal or gemstone dildos are not body safe.

A little bit of everything

There are just some sex toys that don’t fit into the categories above. But that doesn’t mean they should be left out. Here are some other toys for anal sex and anal play.

Anal Hooks

Anal hooks are a curved piece of stainless steel metal with a ball on one end and a loop on the other. The ball is meant to rest inside the anus of the submissive, with the loop used for tying a rope through. A body-safe anal hook is not for beginners. You really need to know what you're doing when using this specific toy.

Cock Rings

The good ol’ cock ring. Although this is not an anal sex toy, the cock ring is meant to sit at the base of the penis, restricting blood flow to intensify orgasms and stamina. Cock rings usually come with a vibrating attachment for additional stimulation. So combine that with an anal sex toy of your choice for added stimulation.

Now that you know more about anal sex toys, you can try out our very own anal sex toy, Lumen. It will give you a better experience since you can connect to other interactive sex toys by Kiiroo or interactive content.
