Anal Training Kits: Training Your Tushie

Here’s how to use an anal trainer kit to train that tushie!
February 23, 2021

Using an anal trainer kit is becoming an increasingly popular way to stretch the anus to be able to accommodate more. If you purchased one and aren’t quite sure what to do next or are simply interested in the splendid stretching part of it all, here’s how to use an anal trainer kit to train that tushie!

What is an anal trainer kit?

An anal trainer kit often consists of a set of anal toys 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, like a dildo or a penis.

Many come as a set with 3-4 butt plugs or probes and they can provide a more budget-friendly option to purchasing more than one anal toy at a time. Since the purpose of a kit is to “train” the booty to take more, if you think you’d be content with smaller toys for a while, then a trainer kit might not be as fun and/or beneficial to play with!

Sizing is everything

While this is important across the sex toy board, it’s even more important to pay attention to the size dimensions of each toy within an anal trainer kit; especially the smallest & largest ones. The smallest size is around where you would be comfortable starting with now while the biggest size can be thought of as an “ideal size” that you’d eventually want to be able to insert.

Therefore if you’re using a trainer kit as a way to eventually take a partner’s penis, look for one where the largest toy is around the same width/girth as their penis. Same thing if you have a certain plug, dildo, or any other anal toy in mind!

Also, consider the width of any fingers that you’re used to and compare the smallest toy’s width to that. If you don’t have any anal experience, look for one with a width around 0.5-0.75 inches.

How to use:

1. Firstly, decide if you want to train solo or with a partner.

While a partner can be comforting and supportive, going solo you don’t have to worry about getting self-conscious and you can go at your own pace, stress-free.

2. Lube, lube, and more lube!

Since the anus doesn’t provide any natural lubrication, it’s even more important for any anal play. Lube up around the butthole and be extra generous when putting it on the toy.

3. Get aroused first!

Especially if you’re newer to anal sensations, getting aroused another way first can help to relax the body and get you into a sexier and more confident mood. It can also help with getting you out of your head and into your booty!

4. Go slowwwww.

When you’re ready with the toy size of choice, press it gently against the anal opening (also stimulating the nerve endings around it) and allow your body to naturally stretch as the toy opens you up. Don’t ever just shove anything in!


If you feel any pain at this point, back off and add more lube first. If it continues, this is your body’s way of saying it’s time to call it for this round.

There’s no rule that you HAVE to insert the toy the first time or every time, simply let your body guide you through each anal training session and the experience as a whole.

5. Experiment with various movements.

Play around with the toy in different ways to explore what feels best for you. You can try; jiggling it, rotating it, or making small thrusts.

The next will be up to YOU because your body will tell you what’s up and you should listen. If that stretch was enough of a sensation, stop there for the time being.

So how will you know when you’re ready to move to the next biggest toy in your kit? Well, there are a few ways to tell:

  • You may find that your body easily takes the current toy, with the process being a lot smoother and comfortable than at first.

  • If your body doesn’t feel “as stretched out” when using the toy as it did when you first began working with it - that means it’s working and you are training that booty of yours!

  • If you find the current toy not as pleasurable, exciting, or you’re just not turned on by it - move on!

Upgrading and moving on from the kit:

It's totally up to you to decide when you’re ready to move on from the kit to other anal toys or something else! Folks will have different experiences with different anal trainer kits that can all impact this decision.

If another anal toy has caught your eye instead, go for it. If you mastered all of the toys in your kit and you want something bigger, go for it! If you only made it to the second toy in the kit and lost interest in the rest but still want an anal toy, get a different one!

As long as it’s the same size or smaller than what you've already inserted, you should be fine.
