Not all vibrators have been designed with anal use in mind, and if you use a normal vibe for anal stimulation or penetration it could cause discomfort or even get stuck. Forget trying to manoeuvre your vibrating bullet or favourite rabbit vibrator so that your anus gets some good vibe loving - with powerful waves of vibrations and a deep, satisfying feeling of penetration, an anal vibrator is specially designed to give you incredibly enhanced orgasms.
Anal vibes are made with safety in mind and give pleasure your anus in ways you've only dreamed of, so most come with tapered heads for easy insertion and a textured or beaded finish that will feel fabulous.
Anal vibes are great for use during masturbation as they add an extra element of stimulation that can really push your orgasm to the extremes of intensity. Anal vibrators are also a good form of foreplay before either vaginal or anal sex; they're particularly good for use before anal sex because they relax your outer sphincter muscles, making penetration less painful and much easier.
How to Use an Anal Vibrator
When using an anal vibrator, invest in a thick and silky anal lube that can be used safely on your sex toy. Try Lovehoney Discover Water-Based Anal Lubricant (£5.99), Maximus Anal Lubricant (£9.99), or Sliquid Sassy Glycerin-Free Anal Lubricant (£8.99).
Once you have applied lubrication to your anal vibe and to your anus, either lie back in a comfortable position or position yourself on your hands and knees and slowly insert the anal vibe. Take it a small bit at a time to begin with, and stop if you feel any discomfort.
You can either switch the vibrating function or straight away, or you can choose to wait until it's fully inserted to enjoy the vibrating patterns. Either way, your anus will thank you for it!
There are so many anal vibes waiting for you to play with that you could quite easily have a different anal vibe for every day of the week. You could even have a different one twice a day, seven days a week! Not that we would stop you, of course, but to begin with you may want to settle on just one anal vibe and build up your collection from there.
Newcomers to anal vibes should start off with something slim like the Temptation Mini Anal Vibrator. This little cutie will give you a rollicking good introduction to the delights of anal vibrators and dare you to experiment with more.
If you're looking for a little bit more, there's the Ripple Rider 7 Inch Vibrating Anal Probe with a five-stage graduated beaded plug system to massage your inner anal walls and muscles.
