People can explore many types of kinks when having sex, bondage, fetishes, and toys. Sex toys might have been frowned upon years ago, but today they are some of the most sought-after objects.
When you start exploring your sexuality, sex toys is an excellent way to figure out what type of stuff you like. You need to know what turns you on and what feels good to be able to communicate your needs to your partner.
I know a toy like anal beads may sound scary, but how would you know if you did not like it if you have never tried it out? You might be wondering what are anal beads.
During this feature, we look at how to use anal beads and some exciting facts you might not have known about them.
Let us get started.
Part 1. What are anal beads?
Anal beads are sex toys used to stimulate the nerve endings in your rectum.
If you have ever seen anal beads, I am sure they might have looked familiar. Anal beads look like the Catholic rosary, a string of beads or sphere-like balls.
One key difference is that the balls differ in size, and a rosary is used for prayer and not to put into your anus.
Anal beads balls usually start out relatively small, and then the balls get larger the more you move up. In the end, you will see a grip to hold onto.
Anal beads come in many different materials: silicone, rubber, glass, stainless steel, and even latex. They vary in size, usually around 25mm to 125mm, so you can decide on the preferred size.
A silicone anal bead with a size of around 45mm is excellent for first-timers.
Part 2. How to use anal beads?
If you have never heard about anal beads, I am sure you are wondering how do anal beads work?
Anal beads are inserted into your anus. The beads act as a stimulant. When the beads are inserted or removed, they stimulate the thousands of nerve endings in your ass.
You can insert and remove the beads during sex or before orgasm to increase your sexual pleasure. Anal beads are also great to help slowly expand your rectum when you prepare for anal sex.
Knowing what anal beads are used for might not be enough to explain how you use anal beads.
Firstly, you will need to buy a good quality anal bead from a local sex toy shop, or you can use an online store. Decide which type of anal bead you are interested in buying.
Do you prefer a rigid or a flexible type of bead strand? Would you like to buy a silicone or steel type? These are important to discuss with your partner. Silicone anal beads are best because they are easy to clean, comfortable, and soft.
Next, you need to use a generous amount of lubricant. This is especially important if you are a beginner. Anal bead strands can feel smooth and soft yet still hurt you if not properly lubricated. Silicone lube is fantastic because they tend to be better for anal play. Still, you can also use your favorite water-based lube.
Once you have an appropriate amount of lube on you and the toy, you can start by inserting the first ball at the opposite side of the grip. This will be the smallest ball on the strand.
Once you are comfortable, move the strand deeper and place the next ball into your anus. This one will be a bit bigger. You can continue moving further up the strand until you feel you have gone far enough.
You can do clitoral stimulation during the insertion if you’re with a partner. Once the strand is inserted, you can continue having sex or start by removing the beads. Some people enjoy having them removed fast. Others want a slow and steady action. Figure out what works for you.
You can continue doing the same thing with the beads until you are ultimately satisfied.
If you are stimulating your clit, try to remove the anal beads as you are about to orgasm. It will create a more intense and pleasurable orgasm because you are stimulating both “hot zones” at the same time.
Now that you know how anal beads work, which beads do you prefer? Share your experiences. Input from others is always helpful to give insight.
