The butt is one of the best places for sexual exploration, and like any explorer pushing the limits, it helps to be prepared with good tools, i.e. some good 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 & guide tries to meet the needs of all the above asstronauts. Like with all most of our lists, you can vote for your favorites and help them rise to the top of the list.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
