Anal Vibrator Guide

As anal play becomes less taboo, people from across the gender and sexuality spectrum are learning more about how great it can be to stimulate the backdoor

That being said, using anal vibrators and other anal toys for the first time can be a scary experience. The best way to make sure your experience is fun, safe, and as pleasurable as possible is to take things to step by step. 

This guide will walk you through everything you need to know about how to use an anal vibrator so that you can get the most out of your booty toys. Let's get into it. 

What Is an Anal Vibrator?

Simply put, anal vibrators are toys designed for the anus. And as the name suggests, they vibrate! It doesn't matter what shape they take — butt plug, anal bead, prostate massager, or another type of sex toy — if they can vibrate, they're anal vibrators. 

How does an anal vibrator work? Anal vibrators are designed to penetrate and stimulate the anus. Most are contoured to fit inside the anal canal, offering comfortable penetration and safety features that keep it in place — so it doesn't slip into the great beyond

Do Anal Vibrators Feel Good?

Let's face it. Anal play isn't for everyone. Some find it scary or just plain uncomfortable to explore their backdoor. 

But if you haven't given it a try yet, you could be missing out. The anal area is an erogenous zone for everybody, regardless of gender. Many people enjoy the extra spice it brings to sex or even masturbation. This new layer of sensation can enhance your pleasure in every way. 

Do Anal Vibrators Feel Good For Women and Men?

If you have a penis, anal stimulation might be something you've heard about — or considered — before. A male anal vibrator can target the prostate and the bundle of sensitive nerves surrounding it, giving you an intense burst of pleasure. Some people can orgasm through this p-spot stimulation alone. 

But what about a female anal vibrator? Since most women don't have a prostate to stimulate, does putting something up the anus feel good? The short answer is yes! A woman's anus is full of just as many sensitive nerve endings as her vagina. When stimulated, these nerve endings engorge with blood and become extra sensitive. Vibrations can send some much-needed sensations along the vaginal folds and the clitoris. 

Penetrating the anus can also add some spice to anyone's sex life. The feeling of double penetration is incredibly stimulating, creating a sense of fullness that can lead to deep and powerful orgasms. Regardless of what equipment you're working with, anal vibrators can spur an incredible orgasm. 

How To Use an Anal Vibrator for the First Time

If you find the prospect of putting something up there a bit daunting, you're not alone. The best way to ease into things is by taking it one step at a time. Here are a few tips to help you learn how to use an anal vibrator the right way

1. Take Things at Your Own Pace

From taboos to misinformation, there's a lot out there that might make you think twice before jumping into your first-time anal vibrator experience. The most important part of breaking down this wall is to take things one step at a time. 

Before you start, do some research into anal play to soothe some of your anxieties or fears. Figure out what you want to get out of it and get yourself in the right mindset before you start. 

2. Start by Doing It Solo 

There's nothing wrong with experimenting with someone else, but it can be more comfortable to try things off alone at first. After all, you know your own body best. 

When you're alone, you'll be in complete control. Try out some different positions, ease things in at your own pace and stop whenever you need to. You don't need to jump straight into using the most intense anal vibrator settings — take it as slow as you want. Just relax and enjoy the sensations, even those that might surprise you. Once you feel empowered, informed, and experienced, you can transition to experimenting with a partner. 

3. Practice Good Hygiene 

Hygiene is essential in any sexual situation, but it's crucial for anal play. You're about to get way more intimate with your anus, including your digestive system. It can help to clean up before going back there. 

For a quick clean, use unscented and hypoallergenic baby wipes. Ensure to go to the bathroom at least 30 minutes before you start to empty your bowels and wash the anal area thoroughly. To make sure your anal play is as clean as it gets, you can use an enema one to two hours before.

4. Lube, Lube, Lube

When it comes to anal play, you need lube. It's essential. There's no natural lubrication in the anus — and dry sex is no fun. To help the vibrator penetrate smoothly with no discomfort, make sure you're using lots of lubricants to make things slippery. When in doubt, add more. 

Types of Anal Vibrators

Everything that goes up the butt and vibrates counts as an anal vibrator. You can even use more traditional vaginal vibrators — like the classic rabbit vibrator or one with extra clitoral stimulation — as long as they have a flared base or a finger loop, so it doesn't get lost. Once you've settled on trying an anal vibrator, you've got a whole world of choices ahead of you. Here are a few types of anal vibrators to try out. 

Prostate Massager 

Prostate massagers are vibrating devices designed to hit the prostate. Massaging the prostate — for anyone with a penis — can have a powerful effect. It can make orgasms more powerful or even stimulate one all on its own. 

These toys can come in various shapes, but most will have a curved shape designed to hit right on the p-spot. The remote control anal vibrator can make for even more exciting couples play.

Vibrating Butt Plug

When someone says "anal sex toy," this comes to mind: the classic butt plug. With a flared shape and a broad base, this device is well known for enhancing orgasms and sending pleasurable vibrations into the prostate or the clitoris. 

The thin tip and broad base help it slide easily inside the rectum without going too far. The design makes it easy to put it in and leave it for as long as you want if you wish to be sent over the edge right away or take your time with the vibrations.

Try one with high-performance vibrations for the most intense experience, but you can also ease into things with a simple silicone plug. Try out a glass plug for some warm or cool temperature play instead. 

Anal and Vaginal Vibrator 

For people across the gender spectrum, some vibrating toys are more versatile, acting as anal and vaginal vibrators. Depending on your preference, you can use this to stimulate the body part of your choice. For those lucky enough to enjoy both, you can use it for all its intended purposes — just be sure to clean it between anal and vaginal uses

These toys are designed to hit the perfect spot with a sleek silicone design. Try a straight dildo design with a bulbous tip, something with a subtle g-spot curve, or a steeper and more sculpted g-spot curve to find the perfect kind of stimulation for you. 

The Bottom Line 

There's no better way to spice up your sex life — alone or with a partner — than by trying something on the wild side. An anal vibrator brings the best of both worlds by stimulating your backdoor and giving you all the pleasure-inducing vibrations you could ask for. 

Of course, that doesn't mean you should be indulging in any old sex toy. For top-notch craftsmanship and a design made for intense pleasure, look no further than JimmyJane.
