What are Anal Beads?

Anal beads just like they sound – a set of multi-sized ball-shaped “beads” which when inserted help to give you an extra chill of sensation. Anal beads come in a variety of materials, sizes and feel ranging from high-quality beads made from soft polished metals and glass to soft, flexible plastics and silicone. Within these anal beads, you also get a variety of sizes to choose from depending on your experience level.  

As we go through how to use anal beads, we will also talk about picking the right style. These range from small, easy-to-manage beginner beads, all the way up to massive balls only the experienced players can take. The anal beads that are suited best for you will really come down to what kind of feel you are going for and how big you are looking to go.

Why Use Anal Beads?

For men and women, the inside of your bottom is filled with sensitive nerve endings, rivaling that of any other sex organ!

For men, anal play helps to stimulate your prostate, a small golfball-shaped bump on the inside of your anal wall.  Lucky for you, the prostate is also responsible for making you cum!

That means that once you learn how to use anal beads, and with a little stimulation, you will shooting and cumming like you have never imagined.

How to Use Anal Beads

For girls, the anal cavity and vaginal wall actually press up against each other causing double-time sensation, making you orgasm over overtime.  Some girls actually say that they prefer anal play because of this!

This means that with the right amount of prep and a little know-how to use your anal beads, you are in for some orgasmic, clean, and crazy feeling anal fun!

Choose Beginner-Friendly Anal Beads
To start, you want to choose a set of anal beads that are well-sized, and made from body-safe materials. We recommend starting with a tapered set that starts small and gets bigger with each bead.

This will let you move at a comfortable pace up to bigger sizes. You can view a full list of recommended anal beads at the end of this guide.
Get Cleaned Up
To start you are going to make sure that you are all cleaned up.  The fastest and easiest way is to use an anal enema or anal douche.

Enemas are pretty affordable and will make sure that you are fully cleaned up and ready to go beforehand.  You can check out my full article about using an anal enema and douching here.
Apply Plenty of Anal Lube to the Anal Beads
Next, you are going to want to lube up!  This is extremely important because your anal cavity does not have natural lubrication. 

If you want to be comfortable, and most importantly, feel good, then you will need to use a good lube.
Add Extra Lubrication inside Your Rectum
Because your beads are going to go in deep, you will need to make sure to use plenty of lube deep inside.  How do you do this?

Lubes shooters or lube launchers are your best friend for this kind of anal play because they will ensure that you have an even distribution of lube throughout and make applying lube much more simple than using a finger to try and shove it inside.
Relax your Sphincter Muscles and Push Outward
The best way I can describe this is to push outward like you are pooping.  Assuming that you have cleaned things out beforehand this shouldn’t be an issue!

Depending on the size of the beads you are going to want to take your time, especially if this is your first time.
Insert the Anal Beads in One by One
Again, go slowly.  You will feel them “pop” in as you go, this is the kind of sensation you are going for!

It might feel a bit strange at first, but as your body gets used to the feeling, it is this expanding and tightening of your anal opening around the beads that is going to give you the most pleasure!

As you work all of the beads in relax, and let your body adjust.
Pull the Beads Out One at a Time
When you are ready, you can then slowly pull your anal beads out one by one.

You will feel your anus expand and pop back down one by one.
Repeat this Process and Work Up to Bigger Sizes
With each round of inserting and removing your beads, you will feel the process gets easier and more pleasurable.

Go slowly, and the more you do this, the better it feels, until your butt will be so hungry for it that you won’t want to stop!

As you get used to the size and sensation, you can begin to work up to bigger sizes!

And that’s really it! Now you know how to use anal beads, but really this is just the beginning of your anal fun.

Picking the right anal beads for your level and needs can be the most important step to successful anal play. We have chosen some of the best anal beads for anyone still learning how to use anal beads and users of all levels.

Anal Fantasy Deluxe Vibro Balls Starter Kit

Anal Fantasy Dulux Vibro Beads are easily our top pick thanks to their unique design.  They are perfectly sized, smooth, and pop in smoothly. But they also have one more trick hidden inside. The beads also have a self-vibrator in the center which doesn’t require batteries.  

MQ Reader Review:
“Size doesn’t require too much warm-up yet is still large enough to feel really nice and filling.  The vibrations feel great when you walk around with them in you.  Package includes free lube and cleaner which is nice.  They feel so good! Overall I’d highly recommend these beads. As soon as I started inserting them the sensation just overwhelmed me it was so nice I had to get off, they feel unbelievable. Can’t wait to use them again, maybe wear them around the house for a bit.”

They are made from a soft, comfortable jelly silicone.  There are also 12 inches long and gradually work up in bead size the further you go in allowing you to move at your own pace.

MQ Reader Review:
“I bought these a while back when my husband suggested them. We have been doing Anal Play for a while now, but were going to be having fun with a few people who were beginners. I brought these along, and SO glad I did. They are sized just right, graduated from small to a larger size on the end by the ring. The texture is sturdy yet flexible enough to bend in the best direction for peronal use. They are great for beginners because you can start out small and continue until most confortable. The ring fits perfect on one or two fingers for the perfect grasp and they are super easy to clean! I highly recommend these for both the advanced and the beginning users!”

Lube shooters work by injecting lube directly inside. This means that you are all lubed up, even before you insert your anal beads. Lube injectors are fast, convenient, and really remove a lot of the mess – so do yourself a favor and pick one up beforehand. After you apply lube on the inside, you will also want to make sure to use plenty of lube on the anal beads.  Once you are all lubed up and prepped it’s time to put those bad boys in!
