Anal sex is almost trendy right now. More people admit to anal sex now than ever before and even more people are willing to try anal toys. One type of toy, anal beads, are great for both beginners and anal experts. The beads come as a set of connected balls that increase in size. Anal beads let you start small and work your way up to the larger sizes. Once you get used to it, you can use your beads to change the sensation you feel during anal penetration. No matter how you play with anal beads, they enhance the moment and provide ultimate anal pleasure.
Like other sex toys, anal beads come in a variety of shapes, colors, and designs. Some even vibrate, adding an extra element of pleasure and sensation. Anal beads know no gender or sexual identity. If you’ve got a butt and enjoy back door stimulation, anal beads can be a great toy to enjoy. No matter what, make sure you have plenty of lube before you play. Non-porous toys made of plastic, glass, ceramic, or steel can use a silicone lube, while porous toys like silicone and other softer materials need a water-based lube.
You or your man is having trouble getting it up. You’ve tried the male enhancement pills and they’re not working. Or they make your heart rate go a million miles per hour and work too well. Either way, the drug route isn’t the right one. But you’re in luck. There’s a non drug alternative (drum roll please…). Penis pumps.
What are penis pumps? They’re tubes that fit over the penis that you literally pump. Yes, pump. You can either pump by hand or electrically depending on the type. And here’s the science – the change in air pressure causes blood to flow to the vessels in the penis, resulting in an erection. Pretty cool, right?
There are several safety precautions you should take before using a penis pump. Click here for valuable information about penis pumps and a list of the best ones on the market from our friends at The Sex Toy Collective.
Ben Wa Balls, also known as Duotone balls, Geisha Balls, Burmese bells, rin-no-tama, Venus balls, or simply, Orgasm Balls, are small weighted balls, generally held together by a string, inserted into the vagina and used for sexual stimulation as well as kegel exercises. It’s rare for Ben Wa Balls to lead to orgasm they can increase sexual arousal that can be used to tease or as a form of foreplay prior to other sexual activity.
The balls may be solid or contain chimes and clappers within. Tantra and traditional Chinese Taoists believe that Ben Wa Balls are useful tools to explore one’s sensual side. Newer styles of Ben Wa Balls may include vibration and additional stimulation that often includes a remote control or mobile app to allow for greater control.
Designed for rectal penetration, butt plugs are another way to enjoy anal play whether you’re new to the idea or you enjoy anal on the regular. Butt plugs are available in varying widths and shapes for a variety of stimulation. Some butt plugs eject water into the rectum meant to stimulate the prostate. To stay safe when using a butt plug, make sure it has a wide base to make removal easier later.
Butt plugs are great for all genders to use, with a partner or alone. They are generally made from latex, silicone, neoprene, wood, metal, glass, or stone. Those last materials may sound uncomfortable, but don’t worry – we’ve found butt plugs designed for maximum comfort and stimulation. No matter what kind of butt plug you use, always use lube for easier insertion and added comfort.
Placed around the base of the penis or scrotum, cock rings are stretchy rings, often made of rubber, silicone or leather that decrease the flow of blood on the penis, helping maintain a stronger and longer lasting erection. Cock rings were one of the first forms of erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment, and s people still use them for mild forms of ED.
Some rings also come with add-ons, such as vibrating pads to stimulate your partner. Luxury cock rings may also have a remote control or mobile app to give you or your partner greater control over the additional stimulation. Cock rings can also be designed to stimulate your perineum or anus. Don’t confuse cock rings with “Prince Albert piercings,” which is a piercing of the penis with a metal ring. Cock rings are removable.
The most famous and most common sex toy is undoubtedly the dildo. Often shaped like a penis, right down to the ripped skin and curved angle, they are used by both men and women for vaginal and anal stimulation. Dildos are great for partnered sex or for masturbation. Dildos with suction cups at the base lets you to use it in a wide range of places and positions. Some are designed for standard penetration, others double.
Dildos are most commonly made of silicone, rubber, jelly, wood, TPE, TPR, glass, and metal. Some are chrome plated, which are popular in the BDSM community. Other materials include steel and glass, both requiring preparation before use. Aside from the common use of anal and/or vaginal penetration, dildos are sometimes given as gag gifts. Dildos have been around for centuries, found in many archaeological sites and depicted in art throughout the millennia — proving we’ve been using toys and tools to get ourselves off forever.
Sex swings are harnesses that allow you and your partner to have sex while one of you is suspended in air. Imagine a hammock that holds the receiving partner in a back down position. Loops and stirrups support the legs, allowing the receptive partner to remain suspended without any effort. Various suspension points generate different stimulations, all based on angles.
Designs vary from traditional, door, body, and fantasy. All sex swings support the buttocks, legs and back. These swings are typically made of nylon webbing, leather, heavy rubber, neoprene, canvas, steel, and wood. Sex swings have flexible range of motion, allowing couples to explore various arrangements and suspensions. As with all sex toys, the purpose of sex swings is to make sex more fun and to do something adventurous. The swings can be used for vaginal and anal sex, cunnilingus, fellatio and anything else you and your partner can imagine.
Penis sleeves and extenders are thick, stretchy sleeves designed to improve the sexual satisfaction of your partner by increasing the length and girth of the penis. They are typically flesh colored or clear and can be made of silicone,TPR/TPE, and other soft materials. The best sleeves mimic the look of an erect penis, made of lifelike material that’s firm yet squeezable. Some people use sleeves and extensions to make their penis look and feel bigger than it is, while other people enjoy the enhanced stimulation they provide.
Certain sleeves, known as french ticklers, are a type of latex condom with protrusions at the tip designed to increase the stimulation for your partner. The protrusions range from nubs, ridges, crests and bumps all designed for extra sensation. French ticklers come in a variety of styles including glow in the dark. Certain French ticklers have ‘caged’ shafts with additional protrusions, enhancing stimulation for the entire penetration. Other sleeves take a different route by mimicking different types of objects.
A type of electrical stimulation, violet wands are low current, high voltage, high frequency kinky toys mainly most often found in BDSM scenes. Don’t let their kinky background fool you because they’re becoming more and more common in non-kinky bedrooms. Violet wands are usually made of plastic that encases an electrical transformer, while the base of the wand has an attached power cord as shown in the picture above.
The wand provides sensations via electrodes triggered by high voltage current. Violet wands generate a shock sensation in the process as it glows and emits sparks. There are five methods of use – direct, indirect, reverse, extension, and branding. The most common method for violet wands involves electrically stimulating genitalia.
A popular BDSM toy used in kinky play, nipple clamps do what their name implies (clamp the nipples) to create a painful sensation and restrict blood flow. Once the clamps are removed, users experience additional pain from the return of blood flow to the nipples. Nipple clamps allow sadomasochists and other kinky people the opportunity to experience both pain and pleasure together and test their limits.
Nipple clamps come in several styles, including piecing, tweezer, clover (or ‘butterfly’, a Japanese design), and clothes-pin. Well-made nipple clamps allow you to customize the amount of pressure applied to the nipples by attaching weights or by loosening or tightening the clamps. Most of these toys have chains that attach the two clamps which is usually made of metal and are several inches in length.
Finding the right angle during sex isn’t always easy. Body parts don’t always match up just right, and sometimes you or your partner just can’t bend the way you want to for the position you’re trying. Sex pillows, sometimes known as wedges, offer a simple solution to make positioning easier. They are used by people with physical disabilities or chronic conditions as well as partners who just want to try something new.
Containing high-density urethane core to combine balance and comfort, sex pillows have been used for decades to make sex easier and more enjoyable. There are several pillow shapes including wedge, ramp, and prism, each designed for different positions. You can use a sex pillow under the hips or knees to raise the hips. You or your partner can lay over it, on your stomach, for doggy style. The purpose of a sex pillow is to minimize pain and discomfort and make any sex position easier to achieve.
Vibrators are one of the most well known, beloved sex toys available. They are, typically, phallic-shaped toys designed to stimulate the g-spot, clitoris, or anus. Some require batteries, while newer styles are USB-rechargeable. No two vibrators are exactly like and they all provide different kinds and levels of vibration stimulation. You’ll find vibrators that, of course, vibrate but also pulsate, escalate, and even rotate.
Most often considered a tool for masturbation, vibrators are great during partnered sex, too. Vibrators come in all sizes, shapes, and materials and fall into several categories — clitoral, dildo-shaped, waterproof, rabbit (two-pronged clitoral and vaginal stimulation), G-spot, programmable/remote control, pocket rocket, ‘undercover’ (mimicking everyday objects such as lipstick), dual area, triple area, smart, and multi-speed. Anyone can use any kind of vibrator. All that matters is that it feels good against your body when you use it.
Sex dolls, also known as love dolls, realdolls, or candy dolls, are designed to mimic the look of a sexual partner. Lifelike in size in appearance, sex dolls typically have full bodies and faces, although some only have a face, head, and partial body. No matter what kind you have, sex dolls are designed to offer the experience of sex with a partner.
Sex dolls vibrate in specific areas in order to add stimulation and make it feel more real when you use it. Remember that you get what you pay for, and you’ll definitely put out some cash for a better sex doll. Cheaper sex dolls are inflated with air and tend to be given as gag gifts. Better quality sex dolls are usually made of silicone or thermoplastic elastomer (TPE). These higher quality dolls imitate body parts to an uncanny degree.
