Anal play is one of the most pleasurable and rewarding activities to explore, and like any explorer, it helps to be prepared with good tools, i.e. some of the best anal dildos.
Anal dildos is a broad category of sex toys though, and one anal dildo might not work for everyone's needs. Some like direct p-spot stimulation, like the Njoy Pure Wand, others like thick and soft dildos for getting an amazing stretch (Mr Universe), and others like 18 inch dildos for reaching the satisfying depths of the colon.
The following list tries to meet the needs of all the above asstronauts. You can also vote for the best anal dildo and help them rise to the top of the list.
Anal Dildo Safety
Anal dildos need to be anal-safe, which means they are made from a non-toxic material, and shaped so that they can't get stuck and lost inside you.
- Safe Material - it's important you find a dildo made of a body-safe material like silicone or medical-grade stainless steel. Toys made of PVC, Jelly, TPE, TPR are porous, this means they have tiny holes you can't see, but will absorb fecal matter like a sponge, making them impossible to clean. Jelly materials can also melt at around 100 degrees and leak toxic chemicals like phthalates. Since dildos aren't regulated in the united states, it's important to learn more about toxic materials to protect yourself from companies trying to make a quick buck.
- Flared/Curved - You need to make sure your anal dildo has a safeguard against getting stuck inside you, otherwise you might need an emergency room to get it out. Safe anal dildos will be curved, have a flared base, or be so long that you won't lose it (think 15 inches+).
Once you can recognize a dildo as safe to use, you can focus on the features you like most. You'll want to pay attention to the size, shape, and softness.
- Size - If you're a beginner, start with a dildo that is .5 inch to 1.5 inches wide and work your way up from there. Anal dildos that are longer than 10 inches are used to go past the rectum and into the colon, this is an art form that takes a lot of training to work up to.
- Shape - For prostate stimulation, you should look for a dildo that has a gradual curve to it and bulbous end, like the njoy pure wand or fun wand. For more intense sensations you can get a dildo with large waves and different textures.
- Firmness - When going deep, wide, or fast, it helps to have a softer silicone that will be gentle on your delicate anal tissue. For direct p-spot massaging on the other hand, the smooth feel of stainless steel can bring out amazing orgasms
Lube for Anal Dildos
The rectum doesn't have much natural lubrication, so using lube is a must for anal play, and lots of it. Without lube you can irritate your delicate anal tissue and cause painful micro tears.
Silicone lube - Silicone lube is great, but it only works for stainless steel dildos like the Pure Wand and the Fun Wand. With silicone dildos, silicone lube can damage and warp the material, a very expensive mishap to have.
Water-based lube - If your anal dildo is silicone than this is a good option. Some good water lubes for anal include Sliquid Sassy, Good Clean Love, and Waterslide. For more information on lube in general check out my bigger lube guide.
Our Favorite Anal Dildos - Top Five Picks
Material: Stainless Steel
Made of stainless steel, the Pure Wand might seem intimidating at first, but it's the perfect anal dildo material for massaging the prostate and intense full-body orgasms.
Using it takes a bit of a learning curve, but the life-changing pleasure you get from it is well worth the wait. To use it, try laying down on your back and inserting it anally. The curved shape makes it easy to slide into place against your prostate, where you can apply that heavenly p-spot pressure.
It was created by engineer Greg Delong, who wanted to make sex toys that were as beautiful as they are pleasurable. Each pure wand is made of stainless steel and polished until it is unbelievably smooth.
Best Long Anal Dildo
If you are experienced with going deep "The Serpent and the Rat" might be a good match for you. It's 18 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, and the pointed tip makes it easier to get past the tight curves of the Sigmoid Flexure and into the colon.
Going this deep is not for beginners! I'd recommend reading this guide for more information on how to use long anal dildos safely.
This is also the most artistic anal dildo you'll find. One side has a tip shaped like a serpent's head, and the other side has a tip shaped like a rat's head--two animals that love deep holes. It's created by Hole Punch Toys, a studio in St. Paul Minnesota.
Mr Universe - 3" Wide Anal Dildo
At 9.5 inches of girth, conquering this anal dildo puts you in the ranks of the Mrs/Mr Universes of the world.
It has a sensational texture and uses Tantus's super-soft silicone for plenty of cushion if you're stretching up a size.
If you want something thicker, like 3.5 inches thick or 4 inches+, then take a look at my guide to big dildos, specifically the bad dragon section.
Material: Stainless Steel
Fun Wand - Beaded Stainless Steel
The Fun Wand is a close cousin of the Pure Wand, and a great dildo for expanding the horizons of your anal activities.
The beaded end is perfect for prostate stimulation and feels divine on the way in. The S shape and the bulbs also make great handles and it's easy to insert, and easy to take out.
Some people on Amazon complained that it wasn't thick enough to get an anal stretch. But that's not really what it's meant for as much as an anal dildo for the prostate.
New York Toy Collective Dildos
NYTC makes carefully crafted and unique sex toys, like their famous posable dildos. These have a firm rod on the inside that let's you adjust the shape to whatever feels best. The rod is firm enough that it keeps its shape when you're using it, but not so firm that you can't bend it.
Some good ones for anal play are the Mason at 8 inches long and 1.5 inches wide, and Leroy at 9.5 inches long and 2.5 inches wide.
