Thinking about trying anal play? The first thing to know is that because the rectum doesn't have a natural 'end-point' like the vagina does, all toys that are used for anal play must have a flared base in order to be safe for anal insertion. The second thing to know is that anal play shouldn't hurt, and if it does, we suggest adding lubricant, slowing down, or trying a smaller toy. Like one of these, for example! All the plugs listed here are safe for anal-insertion, and should be a beginner-friendly size suitable as a very first booty-toy.For more advice on having a successful anal experience, read our Guide to Anal Adventures!
