1. What's your level of experience with anal play?

You may already have some anal experience, whether with fingers or maybe even a penis. But when buying an anal toy, it’s important to not let your eyes be bigger than your butt! Pay attention to the size and dimensions of anal toys as you shop and remember that it’s always better to start small and work your way up rather than starting off too big and uncomfortable.

Pro Tip: If you're newer to anal play in general, you may want to start with fingers first to get used to the sensations and help you figure out if you like it or not; then you can get a toy to keep exploring!

2. What will you be using this toy for?

Obviously for butt stuff, yes but what kind of butt stuff!?

Solo or partnered?

A wireless remote is helpful for both solo & partnered play in a butt toy that vibrates as it makes it easier to control it while it’s in your booty when playing alone or can be handed off to someone else!

If you’ve never tried a vibrating anal toy before, don’t worry you don’t have to turn it on right away or every time you use it. It will still work as a stimulating anal toy all on its own without the vibration until you’re ready to turn up the buzz!

Anal beads are also fun to use solo or have someone else pull them out bead by bead for you!

For penetration play?

Maybe you’re looking for an anal penetration toy to explore pegging or to experience double penetration. Just be sure that whichever toy you choose, it has a flared base to protect it from going too deep within the anus!

To experiment with different types of orgasms?

For people with a prostate, a prostate toy allows you to experience a whole different type of orgasm, unlike ejaculation! Due to the location of the prostate, it is easiest accessed through a specific angle within the anus and prostate toys have been designed with this angle in mind! For people with vulvas, the G-spot can also be accessed through the shared wall between the vagina and the rectum.

For bigger anal goals?

Were you looking to work your booty up to bigger anal toys or a penis? An anal trainer kit often consists of a set of anal toys (usually butt plugs) with graduating sizes that allow you to start smaller and work your way up. This “trains” the anal muscles to be able to accommodate bigger things over time.

3. Lube, lube, lube!

The anus is not self-lubricating like the vagina is, making it even more important to use for all types of anal play. Always make sure you're buying an anal lube with whatever anal toy you get, which usually means either a thicker water-based formula or silicone so that it stays on the toy and body for a longer period of time.

Pro Tip: Avoid products that numb your butt! Anal play shouldn’t be a painful experience, but if you still were concerned, look for something that relaxes the anal muscles instead.
