Whether you want to try something new in your partnered sex life or go all out by yourself,
this handy-dandy guide is here to help you get the most butt fun from your vibrator.
What is an Anal Vibrator?
An anal vibrator, also known as a butt plug, is essentially a vibrating sex toy that is specifically designed for anal stimulation. They come in all shapes and sizes (literally), ranging from anal beads to prostate massagers — all designed to fill you up while they stimulate you.
What’s more; these vibrating anal dildos are usually equipped with a flared base that prevents them from being accidentally inserted too far into your rectum (ouch!). A high-quality anal vibrator is made of body-safe materials (preferably silicone), and it is usually slimmer than its traditional counterparts to ensure the safety of delicate anal tissues.
The typical anal vibrator is either a plug-in model, with a wire and simple controls, or it’s rechargeable (and often wireless), with more intense levels of vibration. Some even have remote controls that allow you and your partner to change speeds on each other during intercourse or foreplay.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Anal Vibrators?
When it comes to sex toys everyone has their preferences! But for anal play vibrators are near and dear to many people’s hearts (and rears). This is partially because they stimulate your erogenous zone without being invasive (and believe us, there’s nothing quite like a good buzz). But more importantly, using a butt plug during anal sex can greatly increase both pleasure and safety for all parties involved.
While anal vibrators can be used by both men and women alike, what may come as a surprise is that men find anal vibrators particularly pleasurable because they’re designed to provide intense stimulation to the prostate. For experienced men, vibrating prostate massagers are the best choice, while for newbies to anal play, vibrating anal probes are a better option.
Women may also enjoy anal vibrators due to how they can stimulate the female prostate (the G-spot) while they’re inserted anally. With the anal sphincter and the vaginal muscles located in close proximity, another bonus of using an anal vibrator is that it can massages other erogenous zones like the clitoris.
Are Anal Vibrators better than Dildos?
This is a question asked by many first-time and even veteran toy users! While dildos have been used for anal pleasure for some time, vibrating anal toys are new on the scene. Some folks prefer anal vibrators because of their ability to deeply stimulate and relax sensitive areas, like muscles and nerves, to give you an intense orgasm.
Others like to take control of their sensations at their own pace — and a dildo works the best for them. They appreciate that they don’t have to worry about recharging or plugging in these devices each time they want to use them. Still, others just enjoy using something slick and firm up there. The ultimate decision comes down to size, personal preference, and what you plan on using them for.
There really isn’t a right answer here—the important thing is that you experiment with different options until you find what works best for your backdoor adventures.
How to Use an Anal Vibrator?
Lube it Till you Make it
Stimulating your anus can be an intense sensation, but always make sure to use a generous amount of lubricant so you can glide your vibrator in easily. Water-based lubes are best as they reduce friction swiftly, clean up easily, and won’t ruin your fun toy.
While you might think silicone lube is a good idea for anal play, that’s not actually true. Many vibrating anal dildos are made of silicone and they can degrade if they come into contact with a silicone-based lubricant. What you want is a water-based lube (sometimes called slippery stuff). Even though it might seem counterintuitive, water-based lubes will help deliver intense vibrations where you want them. Plus, water-based lubes tend to be cheaper than their silicone counterparts. So stock up and try it out!
Slow and Steady Wins the REAR
After you’ve picked your first anal vibrator, make sure that you start slowly and let your body get used to it. If you try to shove a vibrator up your butt as soon as you purchase it, it’s probably not going to be as much fun. It can be tempting to rush right in, but remember that a little bit of gentle warming up will make your anal experience even more pleasurable.
Start with external stimulation and proceed gradually until you feel comfortable inserting a small portion of it into your backdoor. Make sure that you are in an upright position and that you feel completely relaxed. Once you have inserted it in, start off gently and allow the vibrations to flow through your body. After getting yourself acclimated to the first speed, gradually switch it up with stronger vibration patterns until you find what works the best for you.
Pro Tip: When used on your backdoor, every inch of the anal vibrator will make direct contact with your delicate tissue; because of this, it’s crucial to get toys made of body-safe materials like silicone and ABS plastic. Most importantly, don’t forget to introduce all your new sensations slowly, breathe deeply, relax and enjoy!
