The year has nearly come to a conclusion and it's time for our annual anal analysis. The year is defined by the pleasing number of backdoor beginners that indulged in a pleasurable purchase. It's awesome to see that more people are probing for a desire they have probably always thought about, but never took the time to action.
The best anal toys of 2018!
Without further ado, here are ATMS's best-selling anal toys of 2018. You might be suprised by some of the picks!
Kicking off the list is the Basix 3.5 Inch Beginner's Butt Plug. 3.5 inches is simply the go to size for beginners. Smaller sizes help relax newcomers, as they know it's going to be relatively easy to insert. This overall, helps their mind and body relax and ultimately creates a positive introduction to anal play. It also comes in seven different colourways, so choose your favourite colour and bring your journey.
Secondly is the very pleasurable Double Trouble from the Anal Fantasy Collection. This product has many benefits. Firstly, it enables the benefits of a cock ring. Prolonging and also creating a more powerful male orgasm. Further, it allows couples to experience vaginal and anal penetration at once. Basically, allowing both partners to reach incredible new levels of pleasure and intimacy. It also is a great alternative for couples who have threesome fantasies, yet do not like the idea of introducing someone else into the bedroom.
The popularity of anal toys also accompanies the popularity of Desensitising Spray. Prevents discomfort during anal sex and is especially useful for people who want to experience anal play but find it difficult to relax. What's more, it smells great!
This Vibrating Thruster is probably the most advanced toy on this list. Once inserted this toy has seven pulsation patterns and three speed intensities to play with. It's also one of the few self-thrusting toys that has a suction base, this makes it especially popular for the variation in ways in which angles or places users can experience penetration.
This Sleek and Sensual Silicone Plug is another preferred choice for beginners. The beads on the shaft also give users an indication of what it might feel like to use anal beads.
Speaking of anal beads! The most popular beads for 2018 was these Jelly Anal Beads. Anal beads are unique in the way they are used. They are most often used for a raunchy release upon or during orgasm. However, they can be pulled out at any time during sex to build towards an orgasm or simply for pleasure. These beads are an affordable way to give anal beads a go and they are completely fine to use with silicone lube!
These Deluxe Vibro Balls are similar to beads, except string is connecting them instead of a shaft. All balls are also the same size so if you can fit one, you can take the rest! Take your time tugging each one out to savour the sensations. Time them with your orgasm for your most explosive climax yet!
Those who set goals succeed more! It's exactly the same when it comes to anal sex. This Colt Anal Trainer Kit is for the beginner who envisions bigger and better things in their future. This set of butt plugs is tapered for easy insertion and sized for a pleasurable graduation. The gradual increase in size prepares users for other forms of anal play which may use bigger toys on average.
Our final popular pick was for those who want to try everything at once. This Beginner's Fantasy Kit has five unique pieces for a range of sensation. The kit is often used by couples to spice up a dulling sex life. It's also an efficient option for those who want to figure out what they do and don’t like.
The benefits of anal sex
Many women enjoy anal sex because of the extra intensity and intimacy it provides. Pairing the sensations of anal sex with clitoral stimulation or vaginal penetration can bring many women to very powerful orgasms. Some women even state that the intensity and greater reception to feeling that comes with anal play helps them achieve orgasm easier than other sex acts. Whilst, for others it's so intense that it can only be experienced a little bit. It's also a great way around period sex!
Sometimes awesome anal play, especially when using anal toys is dependent on the chemistry partners have together. When chemistry is great and one partner is so turned on that they want to completely give themselves to the other person, this has made the most erotic and empowering experience some woman has ever had. Whilst if chemistry is not as good, for example during a one-night stand. Your body may not feel as comfortable opening up and therefore anal play is off the cards or will not feel nearly as good.
Anal play has traditionally been associated with gay men, however this time is no more! Anal play is so popular amongst men because it takes advantage of stimulating the p-spot or prostate gland. This gives men the possibility of a p-spot orgasm, multiple orgasms or simply more powerful penile orgasms. It's also incredibly healthy for men. Stimulation of the prostate encourages blood flow, boosts immunity and helps release leftover seminal fluid.
The number of beginners' products also reflected the shift in attitudes towards anal play amongst heterosexual males. We expect the recent trend of pegging played a role in sparking curiosity for many couples in anal play. It's also been featured plenty of times in pop culture. However, there are no pegging toys on this list, this was expected as it's done by more experienced new users. Any anal play for men is very healthy as it encourages
Remember to always use lubricant with any anal stimulators. For beginners it's recommended to be generous with lubricant to ensure safety. The amount of lubricant applied may depend on how long you plan on anal play for lasting or what you are using.
