Safety is Key for an Adult Anal Toy

While having an element of danger during sex can be exciting for many people, that idea of danger doesn’t usually involve contracting a disease or taking a trip to the hospital. As such, it’s very important to keep safety in mind when engaging in anal play, especially when using an adult anal toy.

While anal play isn’t particularly dangerous in and of itself, it does have some risks that separate it from more traditional types of sex. First of all, the anus is a bit more delicate than most other body parts. This means that if you aren’t careful, it’s possible to damage it by tearing the skin. Few things are less sexy than a bleeding butt hole, so needless to say that’s something that you want to avoid.

The easiest way to ensure that all goes smoothly when using an anal sex toy is to make sure that you use a generous dose of lube. You should apply some lube both directly to the anal opening and to the toy itself. This will make the entire experience of anal play much more comfortable. If things start to dry out, don’t hesitate to apply some more lube. Since the anus is so tight by nature, there’s really no way to add so much lube that it’s no longer pleasurable.

Aside from lube, another thing you can do to ensure that things are safe is to choose your anal stimulation toy very carefully. For one thing, there are a lot of toys on the market that can be used as anal toys but they aren’t specifically designed for it. These toys can work, but you’re much better off using a toy designated specifically for anal play.

One of the key characteristics of an adult anal toy is that it has a flared bottom. In other words, the bottom of the toy has a sort of “foot” that is wider than the rest of the toy. This helps to keep the toy from sliding all the way up inside the rectum. Since the ass has no natural “dam” to keep things out, this is important. Otherwise, it could mean an embarrassing trip to the hospital to get something pulled out of there.

The other factor to consider when using an anal sex toy is hygiene. Most anal play involves only the first couple inches of the anus and rectum, which actually doesn’t store feces so isn’t as gross as one might thing. However, there is still bacteria floating around in those areas, so practicing good hygiene is wise if you want to avoid disease.

The best types of toys for this purpose are things made of materials like glass, steel or silicone. These items can safely be boiled in water which is surest way to kill all bacteria. However, if you don’t have an anal stimulation toy made of those materials, just be sure to thoroughly wash your toy and your hands with soap and warm water. As long as you follow these tips, you should be able to enjoy your anal play safely and cleanly.
