When it comes to anal beads there are a few things you need to keep in mind! Anuses aren’t like vaginas … they have no ‘ending’ and things can get lost up there (which they often do). So whenever it comes to sexy butt stuff time you need to make sure you’re prepared!
Choosing the right toy
As I mentioned previously, things can get lost when venturing through the back door into the land beyond. The rectum doesn’t have an ending in the same way the vagina does. It also has a nasty habit of acting a bit like a vacuum in that it can ‘suck’ things up into itself. In order to avoid an embarrassing trip to the emergency department, make sure your set of anal beads has a pull ring so you can remove the beads easily.
Secondly, it is important to choose an anal sex toy made from a body-safe material. Body-safe means a non-porous material that cannot harbor bacteria, like glass or metal. When it comes to anal play, however, most people prefer a toy made of silicone as it is more comfortable for insertion and removal.
Choosing the right lube
Now, if you’ve read any of my articles before, you’ll know how often I sing the praises of personal lubricant! Lube is great and in most cases, you can never have too much! So if you plan to use or wear anal beads, you’re definitely going to need some lube. The rectum, unlike the vagina, doesn’t produce its own lubricant, so it is important that you apply liberally in the beginning and reapply as necessary. What kind of lube you use depends on what kind of material your anal beads are made from. As a rule, water-based lubes go with everything. Water-based lubes won’t interact with any other materials your sex toys may be made out of. Silicone-based lube, on the other hand, lasts longer and is great for sexual activities like an anal play where no natural lubrication will be provided.
