What Are Anal Beads?

Anal beads are quite a popular sex toy that is used for anal stimulation. The toy contains spherical objects stringed together. The beads or balls often differ in size to enable users to select those they prefer. Experienced users prefer bigger anal beads. The diameter of the spherical components of anal beads ranges from 25 to 125 millimeters. The number of beads in one chain also varies: they could have up to 20 beads on one chain, depending on the user’s preferences.

Materials of Anal Beads

Rubber, silicone, and plastic are the most popular materials used for anal beads. The best part about silicone beads is that they are smooth and usually flexible. Plastic is quite durable and can last a lifetime, a lifetime of pleasure. Rubber is also quite popular due to its flexibility and lightweight.

There are two main types of rubber beads when it comes to texture and feels. There are rigid and flexible anal beads. The rigid beads are hard; they are made of a tough plastic material. The flexible beads are a little soft, and, in most instances, they are made of rubber. For those that might struggle to choose between the two, there is an in-between. You can go for semi-rigid anal beads. These are not too hard and are neither too soft: they are the perfect pick for beginners.

How Do These Anal Beads Work?

how to use anal beads

Anal beads are used for a variety of purposes, but all of them stem from pleasure. These beads serve their purposes quite well, and because of that, they have become really popular.

1. Anal Sex

It is actually the main use of anal beads. They are used to penetrate the anal cavity: from the anus, through the sphincter, to the rectum. The sensation that comes as the beads pass through the sphincter is the highlight of using anal beads for penetration. Depending on the experience, you can place the entire string inside your rectum, but for most beginners, a couple of beads will do just fine.

How to Insert Anal Beads

Using beads for anal sex is not that difficult, and you must follow these simple steps:

Pick Perfect Size

If you are a beginner, you must pick a set of anal beads. There are many size variants, but the best choice would be to buy beads that gradually increase in size. For beginners, be sure to pick one where the smallest bead is not bigger than your index fingertip.

NB: Anal bead size is very important; do take it seriously!

Use Lube

Before placing the beads into your anal area, you need to lubricate both the beads and your anus. The anus is not self-lubricating, and the friction might be a little painful without proper lubrication. Using dry anal beads can result in getting some bruises on your anus. It will pretty much take away the pleasure part of the whole experience.

The best lube to use for penetration using anal beads is water-based lube. It works well with diverse materials, so it means that whether your anal beads are made from plastic, metal, or silicone, you won’t have to worry about a reaction to the lube. Lube up and enjoy penetration!

Insert the First Few Beads and See Where It Leads

Lodging the beads into your anal area is easy if you have lubed up. Start with the first few beads and do it slowly. Remember, the lodging is part of the pleasure; you do not have to hurry. Start with the first few beads, and if it gets painful, pull it out and start over.

For penetration, make sure that the ring is not gotten into your anus with the rest of the anal beads. You do not want your pursuit of pleasure to lead you to the emergency room.

2. Spanking

Spanking used to be a preserve for the BDSM fans, but of late, nearly everyone has been incorporating it into sex. Nothing can make spanking better than using beads to do it. Anal beads can inflict pain, and if you believe the pathway to pleasure needs a little pain, then using anal beads for spanking might be the perfect fetish for you.

How to Do It

Spanking with anal beads is pretty much the same as spanking with a whip. The only difference is that anal beads may be shorter. With spanking, be sure that you are attentive to your partner and stop when they request. You would not want to end up hurting them.

3. Double Penetration

Fancy some double penetration, but you can’t get a third partner to get the deal going. Well, anal beads can be the perfect third wheel in your sexual escapades. Get a partner that is penetrating your vagina, place your beads inside your anus, and get the best of double penetration.

The fact that anal beads can be used for a variety of sexual escapades makes them quite a great sex toy. Even if you are not a fan of anal penetration, you can still try anal beads and check the experience – it should be thrilling!
