We rounded up the best anal beads, butt plugs, prostate massagers, and all the other best anal sex toys on the market, because it can seem like butt stuff has never been more popular. This makes a certain amount of sense: the anus is a universal sex organ that can be enjoyed by everyone. (Though for roughly half of the world’s population, a few of the best sex toys for men can make it even more satisfying.)
Honestly, it seems a little quaint that there was ever a time that there was any stigma around the backdoor—especially given the toe curling potential of the prostate, an internal gland that is an orgasmic powerhouse, especially if you reach it with a prostate massager . And of course, we can’t forget the anal opening, which is a packet with sensitive nerve endings and where toys like vibrators and anal beads really shine. Anal beads provide stimulation through movement when the beads are removed just before or during orgasm.
So whether you’re just getting started back there or are an old hand, we’ve got an anal toy you’re sure to enjoy.
Best Anal Beads
This combo butt plug/anal bead toy offers two-fold stimulation. When inserted, it can massage the prostate while you engage in other forms of sexual play—either partnered or solo. It’ll just hang out and stay put. The biggest perks come upon removal. At the time of orgasm, removing the plug slowly, allowing each bead to pop out, can intensify your climax by, in scientific terms, a zillion percent.
Best Beginner Anal Beads
If you’re new to anal beads, this string is perfect for you. It has a super non-threatening gradient in size, with the first few beads being accessible to any butthole, no matter how nervous its owner. Still, remember to take it slow and use lots of lube.
Best Vibrating Anal Beads
Anal beads are fantastic on their own, but add in vibration and it’s like being blown to another planet. Three beads in graduated sizes allow the user to start by inserting just the smallest one, then working up to all three. They come with a remote, so you can up the intensity of the vibration while leaving the toy in place.
Best Advanced Anal Beads
For the more advanced anal beads users among us, the nJoy Fun Wand is perfect for you. Made from stainless steel, this super weighty toy uses the power of gravity to enhance pressure on the prostate and the anal opening when the beads are removed. It isn’t for the faint of heart, but if you take it slow it will pay off. Plus, stainless steel is extra easy to clean.
Best Vibrating Butt Plug for Beginners
The b-Vibe Rimming Plug Petite can help introduce anyone to anal play. This toy is designed to mimic the sensation of rimming, with rotating beads and a vibrating motor—but it slips in easily enough.
It can be pretty intimidating to shop for a harness and dildo when you want to try pegging for the first time, but this kit simplifies things substantially. It contains a harness, two differently-sized dildos smooth enough to be comfy for beginners, and a bullet vibe that can be inserted into the pocket behind the dildo to give your partner some pleasure too. Add lube and you’re all set!
Highest-Quality Anal Sex Toy
If you’re already a prostate stimulation connoisseur and want to take your pleasure to the next level, the legendary Pure Wand is worth trying. This deeply curved stainless steel dildo has a smaller end and a larger end, so you can experiment with different sizes while you enjoy the breathtakingly firm feel of steel against your spot.
Best Dual Anal Massager
The Loki Wave is kind of a jack-of-all-trades sex toy. This dual wand is perfectly curved to hit the prostate, while the extended bulb sits comfortably against the perineum. This gives you direct and indirect stimulation of the prostate for the incredibly intense experience. Plus (after you’ve properly cleaned it) it can be used as a Rabbit-style vibrator on partners with vulvas. There’s almost nothing this super deluxe toy cannot do.
Best Perineum Toy
The perineum is a super-underrated erogenous zone. (This is the patch of skin between the anus and the ballsack—the taint, if you have to.) It should definitely not be ignored. If you’re looking for something to up your orgasm game, but aren’t quite ready for backdoor action just yet, the pernieum is the place to start. The Pom from Dame products is perfectly contoured for the vulva—and happens to be equally perfect for the perineum. Try having your partner use it on you during oral or hand-sex and see what a difference it can make.
Best Prostate Massager
The prostate is the male G-spot—don’t sleep on it—and the Lelo Hugo is the best way to reach it. It is one of the most powerful vibrating prostate massagers available, made from fully waterproof silicone, is USB rechargeable, and comes with a remote control for total control over your personal pleasure.
Most Innovative Combo Toy
This inventive product is a cock ring and a butt plug combined into one! It’s great for solo play, but truly shines when used with a partner. The cock ring helps you maintain a stronger erection for longer, while the butt plug rubs against your prostate with every thrust.
