It’s important to consider size when you start looking into anal toys. This is especially important when choosing butt plugs, because they vary hugely in size depending upon your experience level and needs. Start with smaller sized products, and slowly work up to larger sizes. Graduating in size can be done over the course of weeks, months, or not at all – stop whenever you feel comfortable.
7. Be safe
Since butt plugs and anal beads can be enjoyed hands-free, they should always have a flared base. Otherwise, there’s a significant risk of the product slipping too far into the anal canal and traveling up the colon – which may cause serious bodily harm. A flared base prevents the toy from being inserted entirely and makes retrieval not only easy but possible.
It’s never a good idea to take a brand new toy for a spin outside in public, say during a long dinner or a concert.
8. Never forget the lube
When it comes to any kind of anal play, using lubricant is essential. The anus does not lubricate naturally like the vagina, so you need to help it out a bit. Since a butt plug can stay in the body for long periods of time, you should always apply enough lubricant to ensure the easy and pleasurable removal of the plug. Our motto is ‘Slow and Slippery’.
9. Think about materials
This is often a topic that people pass up in favour of convenience or price, but datehookup it’s imperative to consider the material makeup of your products when selecting an anal toy. Avoid low-grade materials, including petroleum products that can irritate the lining of the anal canal. Always buy ‘body-safe’, hypoallergenic, latex-free, and phthalate-free products.
• Stainless steel toys can be used for temperature play (hot/cold) and it feels very smooth and doesn’t drag the skin (but is obviously heavier and completely non-flexible).
