What is an Anal Dildo?
Anal dildos are a type of anal toy specifically designed for anal exploration. The best anal dildos are often smaller than traditional dildos and feature a flared base preventing the toy from traveling too far inside the anus, for additional safety.

Other features include beaded anal toys and ones with extra texture to provide additional stimulating sensations. Dildos with suction cup bases are great for hands-free play, and many anal sex toys are harness compatible for strap-on play also!
Some anal dildos have a curved design, making them a perfect for men for reaching those internal sweet spots for blissful prostate stimulation. Many people enjoy using long extra-anal dildos to stimulate those hard-to-reach places as well.

Here are some features to look for when choosing the best anal dildo for your pleasure.
Glass dildos are harder, which makes them great for targeted P-spot stimulation and prostate massage. To hit this pleasure button, we’d recommend a ribbed or curved anal dildo or male prostate toy. Glass can also be used for warm/cool temperature play.
For women, anal dildos can be used to stimulate both the butt and the G-spot - but not without washing it in between! If you’re going to use your dildo for anal and vaginal penetration, make sure your sex toy has a wide base for easy removal.
A large anal dildo is best for those with a touch more experience in the anal area. If you’re not as satisfied with your anal dildo as you once were, try kicking the length or girth up a notch to see if that pleases your butt.
A suction cup anal dildo lets you ride how you like hands-free. Simply secure the base to a flat surface and enjoy full-thrust anal penetration.
The best anal dildos for beginners are starter dildos. This type of anal dildo is often smaller and more flexible, easing you into anal play.
Anal starter kits are perfect for beginners as they let you can slowly work your way up to larger sizes through anal training.

Of course, it is important to consider your level of experience before you dive right into anal play. To avoid pain or discomfort, don’t select an anal toy that is too large. If you are a beginner, start small and work your way up using an anal training kit.

And don’t forget aftercare! Thorough cleaning of your toy before and after play is important to remove bacteria.
