18 Things You Need to Know About Anal Beads

18 Things You Need to Know About Anal Beads

For many people, anal beads look kinda weird and scary. Still, if you're here, it's maybe because you're interested in using this exciting sex toy with a partner or by yourself. We're ready to tell you all you need to know about the hot use of these toys for adults.

Anal beads can look kinda weird and intimidating. They look like chunky rosary beads, but you don't use them to pray, but to put them inside your butt for pleasure reasons. Even if they can look scary, they are a fantastic way to stimulate your prostate to reach full-body orgasms. If you've tried buttplugs or prostate massagers before, you'll see the sensations and functions of anal beads are different. Besides, you can use them with a partner for an upgraded experience!

If you think putting the beads inside your butt is exciting, wait until you pull them out one by one. The real power of anal beads relies on taking them out and re-inserting them. It can be both physically and psychologically arousing to have someone else pulling them out of you. So, this is a toy you can use on your own, but it's even better when you use it with someone else.

Anal beads

If you're interested in trying these fun (and kinda kinky) sex toys, here's everything you need to know: The anal bead bible for gay guys.

1) Anal beads... what are those?!

They're a series of graduated, cojoined spherical beads that offer an excellent way for the body to get used to anal stimulation, so they're great for beginners. Anal beads need to have a flared loop, base, or a handle, so you can make sure there's a way to stop them from getting way up to your butt, and you need to take an awkward trip to the emergency room to get them removed.

You can insert the anal beads slowly into your asshole to stimulate your prostate, producing a gradual feeling of being full that many people find pleasurable. Besides, the slim neck between the beads creates a "popping" sensation whenever inserted or removed, so the experience of using anal beads is like no other sex toy.

2) What are anal beads generally made out of?

Like other sex toys, they can be made of many different materials. Still, the most common are silicone, plastic, PVC, or other flexible materials. You can pick the one you like the most; just remember to read the instructions well, specifically what kinds of lube you can use, so it doesn't ruin your toy and perhaps end up hurting you.

3) How do anal beads differ from butt plugs and prostate massagers?

As we said before, they have different uses, functions and produce other sensations.

Butplugs are designed to put them in and leave them there for a while. You can masturbate while wearing it, you can have sex, or even live your daily life with it inside your butt, having you turned on for the whole day. Having a buttplug in while you have sex can lead to god-like intense orgasms.

On the other hand, prostate massagers are made to hit the prostate, and that's why they're usually three inches or so in length and curved at the end. Some can move in and out, but their primary purpose is to stay in there, producing a steady sensation.

Finally, anal beads' pleasure comes from the sensation of being gradually filled before experiencing an incredible release as each bead comes out. So, in comparison, using anal beads is a more active (or interactive if you're with someone) experience, and there's more movement involved.

4) Who can use anal beads?

The short answer: anyone with an asshole.

If you're interested in using them, then, by all means, you should try them out. It doesn't matter your gender, sexual orientation, or expertise level; it doesn't even matter if you're a top or a bottom. If you have an asshole (that I bet you do) and you have a prostate, then I can ensure you you'll enjoy the experience.

If it's your first time using anal beads, try them on alone

5) If it's your first time using anal beads, try them on alone

Even if you bought this toy to use with your partner, it's better to do it by yourself while you masturbate the first time you use it. This way, you can get used to the sensation without any pressure and feel free to experience it alone and know how it works. 

6) Do you need to insert every single bead to have pleasure?

As you'll see, some anal beads come with three balls, others come with ten, and you may think that since it's your first time using them, you better buy the small one first, but this can be a mistake.

You can think that you can buy the one with three and once you're used to it, buy the one with ten, but the truth is you don't need to insert all the balls of your toy to have pleasure, so it's better if your buy the one with 10 from the start.

In the beginning, you can insert just three spheres if you feel like it. You can add a sphere every time you use it until you're able to insert all 10 beads up your butt; you'll feel like you're leveling up your anal game.

7) Explore every sensation

If you're a beginner to anal beads, we suggest you use beads with graduated sizes (the ones that start small and grow in size as you move up). 

Experiment with the smallest first. Put it in and out to get used to the sensation of "popping," and see if it feels better if you do it slowly or quickly.

Let your body enjoy every sensation as you experiment with the bigger ones.

8) Use lube... lots of lube

If you've put things up your butt before, you know that you need to use tons of lube. It's no different with anal beads, as your ass is not self-lubricating, so you better get the best lube for this task.

Be careful to read your beads' instructions, as they'll tell you if you can use silicone-based lube. Silicone-made sex toys are NOT compatible with silicone lube, so you must avoid combining them at all costs. 

Many anal beads are made of silicone, so it's best to use water-based lube with those. Apply it generously on your ass and toy, and use as much as you feel like.

However, suppose you have anal beads that are made of other materials. In that case, we suggest you use silicone lube as it's thicker and lasts longer without drying off, making it perfect for anal play.

9) Clean yourself before using anal beads

If you'll be using more than two or three balls, it's vital to be very clean, as they will be really up inside your ass. As your toy will be very deep in your rectum, you'll need more than just taking a shower. 

You can use a douche or an enema to get yourself squeaky clean inside and out before putting your toy in; this way, you'll avoid nasty accidents.

Consider putting a towel down and having some wet wipes handy

10) Consider putting a towel down and having some wet wipes handy

Anal play can be messy, and we're not just talking about what we're trying to avoid with tip number eight, but also all the lube you'll be using. 

Unless you want to take your bedsheets to the washing machine right after you use your beads, it's better to have some towel over them.

The wet wipes are for you to give your butt a little wipe after you're done playing with your beads, and you don't necessarily need to take a shower right away.

11) You can even take the sensations further

Try clenching and releasing your pelvic floor muscles (squeezing your anus) while you have your anal beads inside. It'll not only feel amazing, but it'll also intensify your orgasm.

12) Let your man take control of your anal beads.

You'll see how giving your partner control of your beads is a hot-as-hell power play. Let him be in charge of how many beads you have in, how many he'll pull out, how fast or slow; the surprise factor will leave you trembling.

13) Anal beads are great in so many sexual activities

Having your anal beads inside you improve the sensations of jerking off, having your dick sucked, or even penetrating your man's asshole. Besides, you can use them for training yourself to have larger things up your butt: a dildo, a buttplug, or your man's dick.

14) Pull the beads out as you're cumming

When you're playing with your beads, and you feel like you're at the point of orgasm, pull them out to add a tremendous amount of intensity. Doing this can lead to a full-body orgasm for the other sensations added during your most intense physical moment. Just remember to pull them out gently; you're not starting a lawnmower!

Put a condom on the anal beads

15) Put a condom on the beads if you plan on using it in multiple orifices (or with various partners).

It doesn't matter if you have douched 10 times; you can still transfer bacteria from your anus. So, if you're planning on using your beds in your man's asshole after you used it in yours, or you want to swallow those beads like Lady Gaga in Alejandro music video, you better use a condom whenever the beads are inside someone's bumhole.

I don't think I need to say this, but change condoms whenever you chance bumholes.

16) Remember to clean your anal beads.

Even if you just use your beads in yourself, remember to wash them every time you use them. This will prevent bacteria from reproducing in your toy, which can cause you an awful infection. 

You don't need any particular product to clean them up; just wash your beads with warm water and soap and let them air-dry afterward.

17) Remember to stop if anything feels uncomfortable.

Like we said before, use as much lube as you need to make it pleasurable, but remember to listen to your body and stop if anything hurts. Yes, you need to relax to really enjoy this experience. Still, there's no such thing as "pushing through the pain," so forget about forcing it until you enjoy it.

Always be careful, or you'll end up with anal fissures, and, believe me, you don't want that.

18) What are the best anal beads for me?

As with many things in life, you'll only discover the answer by trying. There are many shapes, lengths, colors, materials; there are even anal beads that vibrate! (Yes, the future is now)

Just remember to get anal beads with a ring loop or flared base, and that silicone-made beads can be the best material, but you WON'T be able to use silicone-based lube.

Here are some suggestions of anal beads you can get:

Choose the one you like the most and start enjoying the sweet experience of using anal beads!
