Dildos are one of the most popular types of sex toys on the market, and they’re the perfect type of toy to use whether you’re getting busy with a partner or you’re wanting to enjoy anal masturbation.


If you’re unsure how to properly use a dildo for anal penetration, you’re unsure how to do anal masturbation, or you want to know what type of anal sex toy(s) you should buy, it can all feel a little overwhelming.


But don’t panic! In this article, we’re going to cover all of those topics, giving you an anal masturbation how-to, as well as telling you about the best anal sex toys out there, so you know exactly how to enjoy using a dildo for anal penetration and anal masturbation!



What Is Anal Masturbation?

Anal masturbation is stimulation of the anus, or specifically the prostate, with the aim of deriving sexual pleasure from the experience. Although you may want to enjoy mutual masturbation with a partner, masturbation is typically a self-pleasure experience that you enjoy alone.


Masturbation, whether anal or vaginal, has an array of benefits associated with it! Self-pleasure reduces stress levels, improves sleep, provides pain relief, and increases self-awareness and self-confidence.


So, it’s a good idea to get busy!


How To Use An Anal Dildo


Although you can experiment with dildos in a variety of ways, there are two main ways in which you can use anal dildos - for pegging or for masturbation. So, let’s take a look at how you can use a dildo for both of these purposes!


How To Use A Dildo For Pegging


Pegging is a sexual act that involves one partner putting on a strap-on dildo and anally penetrating another partner. So, the first thing you need to do is ensure that your partner wants to explore pegging. This is THE most important part of any partnered sexual activity - consent is essential.


Once you’re 100% certain that both you and your partner are into pegging, you can go for it! You will need to get yourself a strap-on dildo, which can be worn by the partner who will be penetrating.


If this is your partner’s first time being pegged, you may want to start small - strap-on dildos come in a variety of sizes, there’s no need to go for a deep anal dildo at first!


With any type of anal play or anal penetration, it’s incredibly important to use lube! If you’re not sure what type of lube will suit the type of dildo you have, you can check out our informative article on lube!


You will need to apply copious amounts of lube to the dildo before the penetration begins to ensure that the partner being penetrated doesn’t experience any pain or get injured.


Just remember to keep practicing verbal and explicit consent throughout the experience, and enjoy!



How To Use A Dildo For Anal Masturbation


If you’re wanting to use a dildo for anal masturbation, there are a few things that you need to think about.


Firstly, the dildo shouldn’t be too girthy or long, unless you’re used to it - start small and work your way up.


Secondly, the dildo has to have a base to it. If you use a dildo for anal masturbation and it doesn’t have a base, you risk it getting stuck and lodged within your anal cavity.


Thirdly, figure out what type of dildo you want to use. A suction cup dildo is perfect for anal penetration if you’re wanting to be on top and would always be our first choice, but it’s up to you - you might want to try a squirting or inflatable dildo!


Finally, use lube, relax, and take it slow.



How To: Anal Masturbation


Now we’ve covered the two basics of using a dildo for anal penetration, we’re going to give you some tips on how to enjoy and practice anal masturbation as safely as possible.


Whether or not you’re using a toy, these tips apply. Just remember, if you are going to be using a toy, use a high-quality toy that has a base.


  1. Prepare Yourself


Although some people douche before anal play, others prefer to just go to the toilet to empty their bowels an hour or so before they plan on getting busy. It’s completely up to you which you do, but it is important to prepare yourself properly, just so the experience is as lovely and as clean as possible. You should also make sure that your nails are properly trimmed before engaging in any type of anal play.


  1. Relax and Take It Slow


Just because the anus doesn’t create its own natural lubricant in the way that a vagina does during arousal doesn’t mean that you should bypass getting aroused and go straight into penetration. Take some time to get warmed up and explore other parts of your body before even touching or playing with your butt - don’t rush into it, you should always be aroused before inserting anything into your anus.


  1. Lube Up!


Since the anus does not produce any kind of natural lubricant, any kind of anal play requires lube to ensure that there’s less likelihood of tears and rips in the anal cavity, as well as to ensure that penetration is painless and as pleasurable as possible. So, grab the bottle and lube up your toy/fingers!


  1. Find The Right Position


Different positions suit different people, so experiment. Lying on your side with your knees up near your chest is a popular position, whilst lying on your front and putting your hand (with a toy attached!) down your back is also a common choice. Experiment with your positions and see what works best for you.


  1. Stimulate Other Areas On Your Body


Although some people can climax from anal penetration alone, it’s not uncommon to need to have somewhere else on the body stimulated at the same time, whether it’s the clitoris, the penis, or the nipples. If you can (if you have a hands-free suction cup dildo this is super easy!), try to stimulate other areas of your body whilst you play or penetrate your anus.



  1. Clean Up Properly and Dedicate Time To Aftercare


If you’ve used a toy during masturbation, you need to clean that toy as soon as you’ve finished using it and come down from your orgasmic experience! Cleaning toys is a non-negotiable since unclean toys can harbor bacteria and cause infection.


Most dildos can be washed with mild antibacterial soap and water, but depending on the type of toy you use, you might want to check out our article on how to clean sex toys!


Aftercare is also incredibly important after every sexual experience, but especially after anal play, anal penetration, and anal masturbation. Sometimes you may experience slight pain or a “full” feeling after engaging in anal play, so take some time to relax, breathe, and take care of yourself. Don’t engage in any more anal play until you feel fully recovered and happy to do so!
