The 14 Best Anal Beads, Butt Plugs, and Other Backdoor Toys
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 having a backdoor fetish—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 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. Those who are new to butt play may want to work on anal training, and don’t forget to douche before you play for a clean and hygienic experience.
So whether you’re just getting started back there or you’re an experienced user, we’ve got an anal toy you’re sure to enjoy.
