Anal toys are sex toys designed to stimulate the anal region, which is an erogenous zone with many sensitive nerve endings. Anyone with an anus can use anal toys, and there are many different kinds of anal toys available. These include butt plugs, anal beads, anal dildos, anal vibrators and prostate toys to name a few.
The best lubricant for anal toys is long-lasting, such as a hybrid water-based and silicone mixed lubricant, which won't dry out too quickly during anal play. Silicone lubricant is perfect for anal sex because it is long lasting, but if your anal toy is made from silicone it will react with silicone lubricant which will decrease the life-span of your anal toy. If in doubt, opt for a water-based lubricant.
Anal toys should be cleaned thoroughly straight after each use using hot soapy water and anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner. If sharing an anal toy with a partner, make sure you use a condom with your anal toy to prevent the spread of bacteria and sexually transmitted diseases and infections.
