How to Use Anal Toys

Everyone has a butthole and that butthole is packed with sensitive nerve endings, meaning everyone – no matter your age or sexual orientation – can find joy in anal play. Go a bit deeper, and you could stimulate the sensation highway that is your pudendal nerve (which also connects to your most sensitive sexy areas), or, if you have a penis, the pleasure centre that is the prostate. Hey, with practice, you might even be able to enjoy an anal orgasm.

There are many different types of anal toys and while you might be aching to jump headfirst into exploring them, due to where the anus is and what it does, it's essential to prep properly and ease yourself in (especially if it's your first time).

Read on to discover our top tips for using toys for anal play in the most pleasurable way possible.

Most Popular Safe Words

Kinky sex: in case you didn't know, it's pretty popular nowadays.

Topics which used to be too taboo to talk about, like bondage and spanking, are now being discussed and explored by everyday couples all over the world. There are many reasons for this shift in attitude towards sex, but it's no surprise that the BDSM trend in particular has only grown since Fifty Shades of Grey debuted 8 years ago.

Now, with five books, two films and a third movie (Fifty Shades Freed) just around the corner, it doesn't look like the Fifty Shades-induced bondage craze is going to stop anytime soon. Huzzah!

In preparation for the newest film, which comes out next month, Lovehoney wanted to make sure all you kinky so'n'so's are playing safe and always use a safe word when you play like Grey.

How? We did a survey, of course.

The good news is, our survey results show that Lovehoney customers use their noggin when it comes to kinky play, and always use a safe word. Not only were you proud to tell us how seriously you take safety, but you also told us your favourite safe words for stopping the action mid-swing.

And so we present to you, the top 10 most popular safe words (along with a few we simply couldn't miss out)...

How Anal Toys Can Supercharge Your Orgasm

anal toys for him

If playing with one part of your body feels great, then it makes perfect sense that playing with two or more areas is going to feel a-ma-zing: particularly when one of those areas is packed with sensitive nerve endings, like your anus.

No matter your front bits, everyone has a back butt, and playing with it is a sure-fire way to supercharge your orgasms in a snap.

Got a penis? Chances are you have a prostate too.

Often dubbed the "Male G-Spot" for its pleasure-inducing properties, the prostate is most easily stimulated via the anus and, when combined with penis play, well... Let's just say we recommend you stay seated for the entire journey.

7 Things You Should Know Before Being Pegged

So, you're thinking about trying pegging for the first time.

You already know the basics: warm up, use lube, talk to your partner etc...

But what about what you don't know?

We asked several couples who peg on the reg(ular) to tell us what to expect from your first pegging experience.

This is what they told us...

(Tomorrow's blog: '7 Things You Should Know Before Pegging Someone')

1. Expect the Unexpected

If you're about to try pegging for the first time, chances are you've already imagined what you think it will be like.

Now, we hate to burst your bubble, but it's unlikely that your first pegging experience will live up to the fantasy.

Much like first-time sex, pegging requires practice to make it great (and that's just getting the pole in the hole!)

Don't be disappointed though. Once you have the physical side of pegging down, you can focus on other elements, like domination and role play, to fully realise your fantasy.
