How to Choose Anal Beads

When it comes to anal play, anal beads are one of the most popular accessories for guys and girls alike. Anal beads have a few different types of designs that distinguish one set from the other, but they all operate on the fundamental idea. There is a string of fairly large beads connected either by a string or by strands of plastic. These beads can be inserted into the anus one at a time, with each bead causing the anus to expand and contract. Since it is this action that leads to pleasure from anal stimulation, this toy is able to produce very quick waves of pleasure.

While the insertion of anal stimulation beads can be very pleasurable, the real treat is pulling them out. They can be pulled out very quickly and if this is done during orgasm, it results in a truly intense burst of pleasure. This type of anal toys is unique among sex toys in their ability to produce such strong sensations so quickly. Most other anal toys can’t really stack up in this regard, though they do have some other advantages.

Like with all other anal sex toys, it’s important to keep both safety and hygiene in mind when using beads. The first step to a safe and pleasurable anal experience is lube! You’ll want to use a good water-based lubricant. It’s a good idea to apply the lubricant to both the toy that you’re going to use and directly to the anal opening. Unlike the vagina, the anus doesn’t produce its own lubrication so it’s important that you don’t skip this step.

The next thing you’ll want to think about is the overall quality and design of the anal stimulation beads in question. You want to make sure that they feature something solid to grip on to so as to facilitate quickly pulling the beads out of the ass. Some cheaper versions of anal beads just have a simple string holding the beads together. This can be dangerous because the string could break, leaving the balls floating around in the rectal cavity. This may even require a trip to the doctor to fix – which would be embarrassing to say the least.

The material that the beads are made of is another thing worth thinking about. Most sets of beads are made from materials such as silicone or plastic, the same basic materials that the vast majority of sex toys are made of. You may also find anal stimulation beads made of tempered glass or even metal. Non-porous materials (namely silicone and glass) are the best choice because they can be more thoroughly cleaned between uses. Another option for cleanliness is to wrap the beads in a condom during use, then simply dispose of the condom.

A final consideration is the size of the beads. This can range from very small to almost disturbingly large. Some toys will feature scaling sizes, starting small and working toward a larger bead at the end. This type is obviously good for those who are just getting started with anal play and want to be able to test their limits on the fly!
