What Are Anal Vibrators? 

Vibrators that are used for vaginal penetration and clitoral stimulation are designed for women. But, with anal vibrators, both men and women can enjoy the thrills of the exciting stimulation vibrators are known for. Anal vibrators are designed specifically to give you backdoor pleasure.

Most of anal vibes tend to have a shorter length than regular vibrators (since the anal canal is a lot smaller than the vaginal canal). The girth of anal vibrators is a different story, though. Many people enjoy the stretching sensation that anal sex toys provide, and some anal vibrators are extra wide in girth like the Aneros Vice Vibrating Male G-Spot Stimulator.

Another common trait about the anal vibrator is the curved shaft. Some sex toys such as female vibrators have a curved shaft as well, and they’re meant to stroke the lady’s G-spot. Anal vibrators that have a curved body are specifically designed to massage a man’s ‘G-spot’: the prostate gland. Also known as the P-spot, the prostate is a walnut-sized gland that’s positioned right in front of the anal canal or rectum. Extra sensitive, this sperm-nourishing gland is a secret pleasure zone for men. Anal vibes that are curved like the LELO Loki Luxury Vibrating Massager give men direct prostate stimulation so they can achieve the rumored mind-blowing prostate orgasm.

You’ll also find that anal toys have a wider base to prevent the toy from going in too deep (to the point where you can’t reach the toy or enter a hazardous situation). This helps avoid embarrassing trips to the E.R.!

Anal Play Facts: A New Sex Trend?

Anal sex in any form, whether with a partner or with a sex toy, is still considered a taboo in society; but perhaps not for long. For instance, according to a study conducted in the early 1990s, 24 percent of women engaged in anal sex. But, in a 2010 study, 40 percent of women between the ages of 20 and 24 had anal sex experience. Additionally, this extensive, detailed study on sex toy sales shows that the anal sex toys category #4 in the top 10 best-selling sex products list. In the same study, 35 percent of single men purchase anal sex toys and 23 percent (in both single women and women in relationships) have bought anal sex toys. 

Anal sex toys for men also has interesting statistics and facts that show that these pleasure tools can improve overall sexual health, especially prostate health. Men who ejaculate an average of 21 times per month reduce their risk of common medical prostate conditions (such as prostate cancer or even sexual conditions that aren’t directly related to the prostate like erectile dysfunction) by 33 percent. By stimulating the prostate gland with an anal vibrator or prostate massager, not only do men get more pleasure and bigger orgasms and erections, but doing so also helps decrease the risk of  male sex-related issues.

 

How to Use an Anal Vibrator in Three Simple Steps

As long as you go about anal play the right way, you can reap the orgasmic benefits that come with experimenting with anal vibrators. Here’s your 5-step guide to using an anal vibrator to reach body-rocking backdoor pleasure:

Step 1: Stay clean.

It’s no secret that the anal isn’t the most sanitary part of the human body, but there are ways for you to cleanse yourself and flush away any impurities before you engage in anal toy play or anal sex. This is where the practice of anal douching comes in. By using an anal douche like the California Exotics COLT Beaded Anal Douche, you can cleanse your anal canal easily. Most anal douches have a slim nozzle, making it comfortable to insert. All you need to do is fill the anal douche with water and squeeze the bulb once the nozzle is inside.

You can also find anal cleansers that have different nozzle shapes and sizes; some nozzles also have different hole sizes and designs to give you a varied cleansing experience. (Find more anal douches and other anal sex necessities in our Better Anal Sex collection.)

Step 2: Lube up.

Unlike the vagina, the anal canal isn’t self-lubricating. Before using your anal vibrator or engaging in anal sex, make sure you’re well-lubed, meaning you have completely covered your toy, your anal hole, and anal canal in a generous layer of lubricant. Otherwise, you can increase your risk of anal fissures (skin tears in the rectum), painful anal play, and other anal-related problems. Lubricant is your answer to prevent these uncomfortable sensations.

For some, though, it may be difficult to get deeper into the anus and cover more area with lubricant. Here’s your solution: the Cal Exotics Lube Tube Applicator. These slim tubes are like syringes for lube. You add lubricant to the tubes, slide the tube inside your rear, and push the lube inside. This allows you to reach deeper and apply more lubricant hands free.

Some anal lubricants you can try from our store include:

Step 3: Relax and play!

After getting prepped up for anal stimulation, get in a comfortable position (e.g., on your back, on your side, sitting down) and make sure you’re in a relaxing environment so you can avoid tensing up, which can prevent you from enjoying your new toy to the fullest. Depending on your anal vibe, you may have multiple vibration functions you can try.

Since the anal area is nerve-packed and extremely sensitive, if you go straight for the highest vibration intensity, especially if you’re a beginner, it may be too much for you to handle. Start off with the lowest vibration speed or function, then move your way up when you can handle more buzz. You may have to adjust the position of the toy or your body position as you experiment until you find the perfect fit for you. 

Another way to enjoy your new vibrator is by getting familiar with the feel of the toy itself while it’s inside you without turning on the vibrations (yet!). You can try thrusting the toy in and out of your anus, twist it around, and experiment with different movements and positions to see what makes you pulse with pleasure.

 

How to Choose the Right Anal Vibrator for You

Since there’s an abundance of anal vibrators for you to choose from, here are some tips for you on how to buy the right one and get the most pleasure out of it:

For Beginners:

Go small and slim. This is best for anal play novices who are wary and not 100 percent sure about what to expect from anal sex toys. The Nasstoys Power Remote Vibrating 4 Inch Butt Plug features a slim, tapered butt plug and a pointed tip that makes insertion effortless and more comfortable for beginners. For a more rounded tip, try the b-Vibe Rimming Plug. This particular anal vibrator doesn’t have a wide girth, which allows you to ease into the stretch that you’ll feel when you insert the toy. Both of these vibrating butt plugs have a wide base and slim neck to help keep the toy in place for hands-free pleasure.

Here’s a special type of vibrator that can change in all sorts of pleasure-enhancing toys (even an anal vibrator) for you to try: the LELO Pico Bong Transformer! Versatile and flexible, this luxury bendable, double-ended vibrator can turn into a prostate massager for men or a regular anal vibrator for both men and women. The small, smooth bulbs on both ends make this toy easy to use for beginners. Since you can bend it any way you want, the Transformer allows you to position the toy to fit your unique contours.

For Lovers of Long-Lasting, Luxury Sex Toys:

If you’re looking to invest in a higher quality anal vibrator that will last you longer than cheaper alternatives, here are some of the best luxury anal vibes we have:

LELO Loki Luxury Vibrating Prostate Massager – LELO, a luxury intimate product manufacturer, is world-famous for well-crafted sex toys. The LELO Loki Prostate Massager is a pleasure product catered to men; you can tell because this vibe is curved to pinpoint the prostate easily and give it direct stimulation to boost arousal. Another LELO prostate massager men may enjoy as well is the LELO Billy Luxury Rechargeable Vibrating Prostate Massager. 

OhMiBod Adventure Triple Stimulator USB Vibrator – For the ladies, if you’d like to arouse three of your sweet spots all at once (include your anal area), the Adventure Triple Stimulator Vibrator may just be a luxury sex toy that you’d like to add to your collection! This vibrator is one-of-a-kind and is also great for beginners since it doesn’t feature an anal penetration extension. Instead, it has a protrusion on one side of the middle shaft that massages the outside of the entrance of your anal canal. This can help you experiment with vibrational intensities and give you surface-level anal stimulation before you invest in an anal penetration toy.

Other Factors That Can Help You Find The Right Anal Vibe:
