If the thought of putting something up your butt scares you, anal beads are a great place to start. Read on to find out why anal beads are one of the most popular sex toys for anal play.
Anal beads are a type of sex toy consisting of multiple spheres (or beads). They are available in varying sizes and are linked together by either a nylon string, thin pieces of silicone, or silicone molded into a base.
At first glance, anal beads may even look a little funny or even be intimidating, but once you understand how to use them- and the many ways in which they can bring you pleasure- they will quickly become one of your favorite sex toys.
No. Whilst both toys are designed for anal pleasure, they each serve a unique purpose- butt plugs are meant to go in your anus and stay in, while anal beads provide stimulation by being moved in and out of your butt.
By inserting anal beads one at a time, you can create the same feeling of “fullness” that a butt plug provides. But half the fun is in the removal- you can pull the beads out and pop them back in again and again. The movement will stimulate the erotic nerve endings of your sphincter to feel like you’re massaging your b-hole.
Firstly, always use anal beads that come with a ring or handle attached to the end. This is designed for pulling and pushing the beads in and out, as well as keeping the toy from getting lost in the rectum (which is super important!). Now that you’re ready, follow these easy steps:
When it comes to anal beads, it’s always a great idea to try them out by yourself first. There’s a lot less pressure when it’s just you. Plus, it will also help you know what you like and don’t like.
Not sure what to do? Here’s a simple guide on how to get started with solo anal masturbation.
When trying new toys, sometimes your eyes can be bigger than your anus. We recommend to start off with three or four small to medium sized beads- you don’t want to make any promises that your anus can’t keep!
Start off by inserting the beads one at a time to create a sensual feeling of fullness.
When you’re ready, pull them out at varying speeds, depending on the desired effect. As the anal beads are removed, they arouse the sensitive nerve endings of the double-ringed sphincter muscle. This stimulation creates a series of pleasurable sensations, like having a muscle massaged.
Expert tip: Always use lubricant with anal beads or any anal sex toy, for that matter. Not sure what lube to use? Learn how to choose the best lube for anal play.
The wonderful thing about anal beads is that there are several ways to use them- you can try taking them out as you near climax for a whole new different take on orgasms, or use anal beads as a warm up before sex.
You can also leave your anal beads in safely for about 2-3 hours. But don’t go overboard, and like, fall asleep with them in.
If you’re sharing anal beads, we recommend to use a condom over the toy and replace it with a new one when you switch between partners. Besides safety, you’ll still be able to feel each bead with a condom and it will make cleanup a whole lot easier.
Vibration can help the sphincter muscles to relax. One example is our Triplet Anal Beads- they come in 6 vibration levels and 15 patterns and are designed for one purpose- to ensure that your experience is pleasurable, not painful.
The b-Vibe Triplet Anal Beads are made specifically for this type of anal play. The Triplet’s flexible silicone beads are molded into a semi-rigid shaft with an anchor at the end. This gives the user more control, making inserting and removing the beads a much easier task.
The anchored base also allows the Triplet to be worn as an anal plug, opening the door to further pleasure, such as double penetration play.
Removing the b-Vibe Triplet as you near climax can lead to intense toe curling orgasms.
Leaving the Triplet inserted and switching on its two rumbly motors using its handy remote control can kick that sensation into high gear and really ramping up the pleasure.
The best part is all this hands-free stimulation means that you can use your hands for other important erotic matters. The remote can also be used to spice up partner play.
If you have a penis, your prostate will respond extremely well to movement, pressure, and stimulation of the second bead. Flex and release your pelvic muscles.
Last, but surely not least, share the pleasure with your partner. When the b-Vibe Triplet Anal Beads are worn inside the bum during penetrative vaginal sex (meaning penis in vagina, beads in the butt), the vibration and the beads can easily be felt by the penis. This provides an extra pleasurable sensation and enjoyment for both partners.
Now that you’re armed with more knowledge, hopefully, anal beads don’t seem silly or scary as you may have once thought. All you need now to start your anal bead adventure is your favorite anal lube and a Triplet.
Happy adventuring and pleasure ahoy!
