Buns of Steel: Using Stainless Steel Sex Toys for Anal

Last Updated: Jan 15, 2024 / By Bobby Box

What's body-safe, lasts a lifetime, and can be completely sterilized? You guessed it, stainless steel sex toys! Bobby Box trains us on these amazing, shiny sphincter stretchers in this edition of the Queeries.

When you think of stainless steel, you first thought probably isn't sex toys. But truth be told, stainless steel is one of the safest and most effective materials a sex toy can be made out of, is body-safe, can last a lifetime, and can be completely sterilized between uses, making it safe to use between multiple partners.

Now, just because I've said stainless steel is safe for the body doesn't mean I recommend dislodging and shoving your kitchen faucet up your ass. The treatment and design of these toys are paramount to your bodily safety and pleasure.

Fortunately, b-Vibe has just launched our very first stainless steel sex toy collection, featuring the brand's first-ever metal toys for anal and prostate play. Though, if you have a vulva, we encourage you to use them vaginally for G-Spot masturbation as well. The shape is perfectly curved to stimulate both of these deeply erogenous areas. Aren't bodies fascinating?

So if you're new to stainless steel sex toys and are curious about exploring its many tantalizing features, you've come to the right place. And if you're looking for your first stainless steel sex toy, may we recommend the Prostate Plug, the Anal Beads, or the P-Spot Training Set.


You may be asking: Why stainless steel when there are so many other sex toy materials? Well, the answer boils down to personal preference and exploration. Meaning you might enjoy the features unique to stainless steel, or you might want to try something new. In either case, you may like to know that stainless steel's most popular are heaviness, hygiene, and hardness. (The three H's.)


When you pick up your first stainless steel sex toy, you will be impressed by its weight. It's a given. Truth be told, the toy could double as a weapon or a dumbbell, should you happen to need them. They add a unique, blunt pressure given their heft and use gravity to their advantage. Once the toy is inserted, it does a lot of the work for you. You can move it around of course, but the unique weight and gravity will naturally graze, massage, and stimulate your body's most erogenous zones.


There is also the fact that stainless steel items can be completely sterilized. Because stainless steel sex toys are non-porous, there is no place for the germs to fester and, when cleansed, this body-safe sex toy can be safely shared with others. Despite being thoroughly washed, toys made from porous materials can still harbor germs and bacteria that can be transferred between partners. Provided the toy is made from quality stainless steel, the material is a fantastic option for those with sensitive skin.

There are a few ways to clean a stainless steel sex toy. You can give it a thorough rinse with warm water and antibacterial soap. You can put it in the dishwasher without detergent or any other items, or you can boil it for roughly three minutes. All of these are effective methods for disinfecting stainless steel.


Stainless steel sex toys are unparalleled in their hardness. The material also provides ultra-smooth tactile sensations courtesy of its slick surface, which offers a frictionless experience when paired with lube. Stainless steel can also be paired with any lube and will never break down. It'll last a lifetime, something you can pass down from generation to generation. That was kind of a joke, but totally possible!


Something that I personally love about stainless steel sex toys is their ability to absorb temperature, offering entirely new (and free!) sensations that you cannot get from most other materials. While glass sex toys can also be used for temperature play, I personally don't think it does as proficient a job as stainless steel.

Learn how to use stainless steel sex toys for hot and cold temperature play

Temperature play sex provides pleasure by provoking arousal in the skin's neuroreceptors, which feels especially good on erogenous zones like the neck, scalp, bum, inner arm, lower back, and of course, the genitals. Temperature play can also be helpful for folks who experience discomfort or inflammation during penetration, as a chilled stainless steel toy can help remedy that.

Of course, we're dealing with your bum and genitals here, so it's important you be careful and prioritize your safety. Generally speaking, a toy should only be modified by 15 to 25 degrees F. Here are the best ways to alter a toy's temperature.

Cold Sex Play

To chill your stainless steel sex toys, fill a bowl, glass, or ice bucket with cold water and ice. Then submerge your toy for 10 to 20 seconds, wipe it dry with a towel, and test the toy on your wrist before venturing to more sensitive areas. If the toy isn't chilled to your liking, add more ice and keep it in the water longer. When the chill wears off, keep the bowl nearby and repeat the process.

People ask if they can put their stainless steel sex toys in the freezer, and I caution against it. You know what happens when you stick your tongue to a post in the winter? Yeah, we don't want that happening to your asshole.

Hot Sex Play

Start by heating your toy to body temperature (96 degrees F) and gradually increase the heat from there. We don't want you burning anything down there so you're best to start low. To heat your toy, submerge it in hot water for 10 to 15 seconds, similar to cooling it. Try to use an electric kettle when heating the water so you can determine the temperature more easily.

As is recommended with cold temperature play, test the toy on your wrist before heading down south. And if you want it warmer, play with the water's temperature and how long you keep the toy in the water.
