A to Z of Anal Sex Toys – Part 2

Anal Beads

Great for beginner’s anal beads are more anal-virgin-friendly than bigger butt plugs or dildos.

Interested in some anal play but scared your tight love bud can’t handle too much? Grab the Bottoms Up Anal Toy Set! You get two silicone anal toys: graduated butt beads and petite butt plug, 4 insertable inches each. They are made of 100% platinum cured, medical grade silicone that can easily clean. Use plenty of water-based lube and anal beads will stay slippery and slick for easy entry. Use the large pull ring for stimulating action. Silicone Anal Beads usually graduate in size allowing you to take as much or as little as you can handle. Also, anal beads feel fantastic when left in during intercourse or masturbation and can be pulled out during orgasm to intensify the sensations.

Anal dildos

If you’ve used anal sex toys before, then an anal dildo should be easy for you to get to grips with. Dildos come in a range of shapes and sizes; we recommend starting with something small but textured, such as the Doc Johnson range of dildos! These dildos are incredibly life-like and made from 100% rubber. This handy 5″ dong is just the right size for beginners and the pendulous balls make a great handle for thrusting.

Don’t forget your lube, at esmale we constantly bang on about lube but this is not to be dismissed if you’re a curious newbie make sure that you’ve coated your sex toy in a dedicated anal lubricant and that the opening of your anus is well lubricated too. The firmness of an anal dildo allows it to slide in with ease, but you may find that you have to manoeuvre your body so it fits perfectly and stimulates that all important p-spot.

Anal dildos make it possible for you to have all the fun of penetrative anal sex but at the comfort of your own pace, but remember practice makes perfect so start slow and work your way up.

Butt Plugs

Butt plugs are a big hit at esmale HQ, as a bestselling area of anal sex toys, we guarantee there is a butt plug for everyone. Butt plugs are designed and moulded to fit your anus and comfortably sit there for long-term stimulation, butt plugs usually feature a tapered head, a wider body and a slim neck with flared base, meaning these little beauties will stay where you put them even after those hard sessions in the bedroom!

Apply a generous amount of lubricant to the butt plug and to your anus, next slowly ease the tapered tip slowly in to your anus. As this is the slimmest part of the plug, you may struggle to get it in straight away but take your time, breathe out and try positioning the tip so it is angled towards your stomach. Once you have inserted the tip gradually push the plug in place. Now you’re hands free to concentrate on more important things.

Many people like to use a butt plug, such as the Doc Johnson Clear Anal Starter, just before anal sex. By doing this it will gently stretch your anus making intercourse more comfortable.


We’ve all heard the horror stories of things getting a little messy during anal sex. However, follow these few short steps and we’ll help you keep sex safe, clean and hygienic.

First thing first, we recommend you use the toilet half an hour before anal play. Generally, faeces or poo is not stored in the lower part of the anus where a penis or sex toy goes, so it should be pretty clean.

However, we recommend using a douche; this is particularly a good idea if your partner is a keen rimmer! A douche gently deposits water into the rectal passage, removing any compacted faeces as gravity does its thing and your sphincter muscles help push the dirty water back out of you.

Finally, Using condoms on your anal sex toys help prevent the build up of bacteria and make it easier for you to clean.
