The 8 Best Anal Toys For Men
What do we base our research on?
It’s amazing how many men there are out there that have not only tried these anal sex toys, but reviewed and rated them based on their merits and disadvantages. They looked at them objectively and were able to provide honest and balanced reviews. And at the end of the day that’s exactly what we were looking for! So using these thoughts and opinions – alongside the stone-cold facts on websites such as Lovehoney or SheVibe – we put together a comprehensive review and guide on anal toys for men! We’ve got everything covered in this review, so have fun!
Types of anal toys for men
There are so many different anal toys for men! They all go in the same place, but they look different and have different pleasure levels. So let’s take a little look at the most popular anal toys for men out there!
- Butt plug – Want that full feeling in your butt, but don’t want to go too deep? Butt plugs fill you up and provide you with a nice stretch, which is great whether you’re moving on to something a little bigger or sticking with the butt plug.
- Prostate massager – Being able to massage your prostate is a wildly orgasmic and intimate process. Having a prostate massager that dives in and provides stimulation directly to that erogenous zone is…phew! Ridiculously hot!
- Anal beads – Pushing a line of anal beads joined together by string or silicone into your butt is a truly unique and exciting thing to do in the bedroom! Remove them as you orgasm for serious pleasure!
- Probe – Long and slim, anal probes are designed to go deep, reaching far inside to give you that sense of being really filled up. Some anal probes vibrate and move, but whether you have an electric one or a manual one, you’re in for a great time!
- Dildo – The classic dildo! Shaped like a cock, it’s a fantastic replacement for anal sex. Feeling as firm yet flexible as a real penis, a dildo will slide inside your butt with ease. Just make sure it has a flared base!
The materials that anal sex toys are made out of really matters. Here are a few options for you to take a look through!
- Silicone – By far the most popular material when it comes to sex toys, silicone not only looks amazing, but it feels amazing too. It is completely body-safe, it is also very easy to keep clean and can even be sterilized. Silicone is a real favorite of anal sex toy lovers around the world!
- TPE/TPR – similar to silicone in a lot of ways, TPE/TPR is a flexible, durable, stretchy, and life-like soft plastic. Unlike silicone though, TPE/TPR is a porous material, which means it can absorb and harbor bacteria and germs.
- ABS plastic – A harder kind of plastic than TPE/TPR, ABS plastic is firm and strong, and it is perfect for transmitting vibrations. Used in fairly high-end sex toys, it is a non-porous material, which means all that nasty stuff won’t leech into it, making it easier to keep sanitized.
- Glass – Very strong and girl, glass is a harsh and powerfully pleasing material to use for an anal sex toy. It’s easy to keep clean due to it not being porous at all. And don’t worry – the glass is thick and toughened to make sure there is no chance of it breaking!
- Metal – Similar to glass, metal makes for a harsh and strong anal sex toy. Amazingly good for temperature play, metal anal sex toys feel unique yet industrially pleasing! Toys made from metal (and glass for that matter) are more geared towards more advanced anal players.
What size of anal toy is best?
Choosing the perfect sized anal toy is all down to you and what you want. If you think you can handle something larger, then by all means go for it. But we’d recommend starting small and working your way up. If you are shopping for a butt plug, check out this guide to find the perfect size. If you’re more of a beginner or prefer less intense sensations, tapered toys are easier to insert and remove.
What is an anal sex toy for men?
Anal sex toys are designed to give sexual pleasure by stimulating the sensitive nerve ending in the anus and/or the prostate gland (aka the 'p-spot'). These can be in the form of a butt plug, anal beads, dildo's and prostate massagers. Some also incorporate pressure on the perineum- the area in between the anus and the scrotum.

The 8 Best anal toys for men in Test
Lelo Loki Vibrating Prostate Massager
Loki vibrating prostate massager screams luxury and there’s a good chance that won’t be the only thing screaming when it has finished with you.
Internally, the silky silicone massage targets your prostate with a “come hither” motion and 10 vibrating modes, while the perineum stimulator gets to work outside at the same time. It has 4.5 inch girth and 4 inches insertable length, so once you have lubed-up with a water-based lubricant it shouldn’t be too intimidating even for newbies.
It also has a rechargeable battery, fully charged in an hour, with a two hour battery time.
Lelo have been making quite a name for themselves, and Loki is another example of their commitment to finely-crafted and finished sex toys.
It’s not the cheapest but you can feel where the money has gone with the luscious curved silicone plug. The double-teaming of the prostate and perineum has made this a huge hit with many but it’s not without its flaws.
What looks to be a chunky toy for newbies, doesn’t always provide the fullness of feeling more experienced players look for.
The quality of materials and the design are fantastic if you want to take your first tentative steps into anal play, but if you know what you like and are tougher to please, you may be best looking elsewhere.
Anal Adventures Silicone Anal Beads
These are 10 beads made from premium silky-soft silicone, that get gradually bigger as they are inserted further inside. They are super-easy to insert and the looped handle ensures easy retrieval too.
They have just over 10 inches insertable length with the chunkiest bead being 0.75 inches so nothing for even the most timid newcomer to be frightened off.
They are also latex, phthalate, fragrance and paraffin-free.
This is a decent, cheap-and-cheerful introduction to anal-play.
Lovely silicone feel, easy to use, easy to clean, not too intimidating size-wise and cheap enough to take a chance on if you are not sure.
If you have been working your way through the sex toy catalogues then I would be surprised if this could keep you interested for too long, but for a newbie it’s a perfectly priced and designed introduction.
Doc Johnson Mood Naughty Silicone Butt Plug
This velvety-soft silicone butt plug needs a nice coating of water-based lube then it will slide right in. It’s tapered tip and graduated body is only 3inches insertable length and 3 inches at its thickest point, so is ideally proportioned if you are taking your first furtive steps into anal play.
The flared base and handle give that extra reassurance that it won’t get lost in the heat of the moment, and mean you can enjoy it on your own too!
This is another one that is ideal for newbies but will likely be too small for more experienced users.
You can’t fault the design: lush silicone that belies the price tag, easy to use and clean, and a great introduction into anal play. The 3 inch length and girth won’t scare anyone off either.
So, if you are looking for a cheap toy to ‘test the waters’ this could be right up your alley (sorry, I couldn’ t resist!). But for seasoned pluggers, it’s unlikely this will be big enough to hit those hard-to-reach spots.
Helix Syn Vibrating Silicone Prostate Massager
Helix Syn V is the latest incarnation of their popular range of prostate massagers. What they have brought to the table with this one is vibration: 8 different patterns with 3 levels of intensity each. The fun lies in finding which one is perfect for you!
It’s 3.75inch silcone-coated shaft is rippled and designed to hone in and massage on your prostate, in tandem with the perineal pressure from the outside tips.
It is fully rechargeable and comes with a nifty magnetic USB charger that gives up to 3 hours charge. Probably just about enough to work through those 24 vibration settings. Though you’ll do well to manage it in one sitting!
They call it “the holy grail of powered prostate stimulation” and a legion of happy fans vouch that is not just sales hype. They’ve had to wait for technology to catch up and now they have allied a host of vibrating options to what was arguably the best-engineered prostate massager on the market. It’s also that bit bigger than a few I previewed earlier in this roundup which should please some more experienced users without scaring off the newbies.
If you hadn’t guessed it already, that’s a big thumbs-up!
b-Vibe Remote Vibrating Rimming Butt Plug
The King Kong of Butt Plugs (if King Kong had 30 vibrating speeds and liked to rim relentlessly). Now lets try to shake that image from your head and get you the down-low on the specifics…
This not only measures in at 5x5inches of velvety-soft silicone, but has a neat rotating base that simulates the sensation of a good rimming as your insides stretch to feel the benefit of 5 different speeds of vibration and 6 different patterns.
It also boasts a remote control that works up to 9 meters away. Though it’s likely your partner will want a much closer view than that!
Well, after the last few reviews questioned whether the products catered for more experienced users, here they have just what they have been waiting for. In fact, it could be a case of “be careful what you wish for” as at 5×5 inches this may take some working up to even for them!
This is a phenomenal toy. It’s size is a gift and a curse- surely it would frighten the bejesus out of any novices and even experienced heads will need a bit of prep work and a generous portion of lube. But if you can handle it, reviews praise its power and orgasms that border on life-changing! The consensus seems to be that the rimming base is a pleasant enough novelty but it gets lost in the shuddering pleasure from the plug itself. As far as criticisms go, I have heard a lot worse!
If you can handle and afford it, lube up and grab a firm hold of that headboard!

Nexus Trio Butt Plug Training Set (3 Piece)
This is a set of 3 butt plugs, from 3.5inches length/3.75 girth, all the way up to 5.5 length/6.25 girth. *gulp*
The silkiness of the silicone off-sets the firmness of the toy, allowing for smooth insertion, once a decent portion of water-based lubricant is applied. They all boast tapered tips, so they can be teased in gently, thickening to the chunky midpoint for that fuller feeling inside. The textured neck adds a further sensation, while the flared base gives peace-of-mind for anyone who gets carried away…
A quick wash with warm water and they’re as good as new again, for next time.
These are a great selection of butt plugs, whether you want to gently prepare yourself for something bigger, heighten your orgasms during intercourse, or whatever.
The variety of sizes means you can start with the smaller then have all your bases covered as you get braver and more experienced. Though at over 6 inches girth the biggest is not for the faint-hearted!
As far as butt plugs go, they are beautifully made, give you a host of options and won’t break the bank. What’s not to like?
Hueman Remote Control Cock Ring Butt Plug
This is quite the double-header. Not only a cock-ring, but a textured silicone, 4.5inch butt plug too. And all remote controlled for your convenience or your partner’s pleasure!
It has 4 speeds and 6 vibrations of patterns and is fully rechargeable, with a run-time of 50 mins.
This is a neat little combo, but not without it’s flaws.
Lets start with the positives.
The option for anal stimulation while the cock ring strengthens your penis and eventually heightens your orgasm is one that will appeal to many. The smooth silicone gives the product a classy finish and the remote control is a lot of fun (whether you’re on your own or with a partner).
But…that cock ring is just too small for many even average sized guys- some reviewers even found it tough getting around their testicles. The plug itself slides out a fraction too in use, but it’s amply enough proportioned so that isn’t a deal-breaker.
In summary, an interesting toy that’s a lot of fun but which might frustrate the larger users.
We-Vibe App and Remote Prostate Massager
A prostate massager with a difference. Not only can you control its ten vibrating functions on the base (like most do), you can also use remote control or your partner can be in another area code using the We-Connect app!
It has an adjustable head and flexible base, designed to fit you perfectly, and a dual motor action. One sends rumbling vibrating to massage the prostate while the external one doubles-up on your perineum.
The remote has a 3 metre range and the USB charger takes 90 minutes, then you’re good to go. The toy itself is completely water-proof so you can use it in the shower or elevate your bath-time too…
This toy is alot of fun with the remote and app aspects really bringing something new to the table. The silicone material feels silky smooth, with the bulb you can adjust til it’s just right for you. As well as the ten vibration settings, the option to customise your own is a lovely touch. It’s a decent middle-of-the-road size: not too big to intimidate newbies, but big enough for more experienced. That being said, real anal kings and queens might prefer something a bit bigger (though they probably wouldn’t be able to find one with the remote and app functionality too).
The app itself, while a neat innovation, could do with some tweaking. Users reported issues when registering and then having to re-pair again after a period without use.
These are minor quibbles, though, for what is a really fun toy.
Unintimidating Beginner Anal Toys for Men
If you want to dip you toes into the water with anal play but have been scared off by some of the toys you have seen, then this selection of dinkier treats should be right up your street. So to speak…
What and Where is the P-Spot?
All this “p-spot massage” talk might have some of you wondering exactly what it is and where you can locate this magical palace of pleasure. And that’s exactly what this short guide is here for…
What is the p-spot?
- Refers to the prostate: a small walnut-sized gland that produces the seminal fluid that sperm travels in
- Stimulation provides a powerful, intensely pleasurable sensation during orgasm
Where is the p-spot?
- It’s located between the rectum and the anus
- It can be located by inserting a finger (or toy) 2-3 inches in and performing the “come hither” motion
How to start using bigger anal toys
Once you have taken those first steps into anal play, dipped your toes into the water and started to see what all the fuss is about, chances are that you’ll want to take the next step: bigger anal toys. Here’s our guide to walk you through the do’s and don’ts…
Start small and work your way up
- Don’t just jump in with a 7inches Doc Johnson.
- You need to prepare yourself (and your anus!), to become familiar with the sensations.
- Start with a finger, then a butt plug, beads or a prostate massager.
Choose toys with a flared base
- Plugs and beads, in particular, are made for hands-free fun. A flared base removes any threat of them being fully-inserted and causing internal damage.
Don't skimp on the lube!
- If in doubt, squirt more out!
- The anus doesn’t lubricate naturally like a vagina. You need to put enough on plenty of play, and a safe, comfortable retrieval.
How to use anal toys for men
While anal toys are all simple to use, there are few pointers that you need to heed to ensure your first time goes is as comfortable and satisfying as it can be.
Make sure you're in the mood
So much of our arousal is in the mind- if your head is not in the zone and ready, then your anus can be more resistant too. If you’re not feeling it, raincheck til you are. Your butt will thank you for it.
Clean the toy beforehand
Whether it’s fresh out of the box or was cleaned after last time, give it a quick wash with warm, soapy water.
Lube up. Lots.
This is no time to skimp! Liberally apply lubricant (usually water-based) to both the toy and the entrance of your anus.
Relax, then inch it in
Relax, let your butt get used to the pressure as you oh-so-slowly ease it in. And I mean slowly!
How to clean anal sex toys for men
Anal sex toys are usually made from silicone, which is a non-porous material, making it easy to clean after use. Warm, soapy water is enough for most, though you can also get specialist toy cleaning liquids. Check out our infographic and videos below for more details...
Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.
Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.
Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.
Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.
If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
