How to recognize anal safe sex toys?


We created an illustrated guide for The Sex Shed and I thought it would be beneficial to share it here as there are a lot of new toy users and this information is worth repeating and re-reading because you definitely don’t want to end up in the ER with a toy stuck up your ass.

I’ll post the whole guide here, if you want to see the illustrations and get better idea of these tips, [you can open it here.](

# Learn how to recognize and choose and anal-safe sex toy in 8 easy steps.

*This wonderful guide has been created with the help of Jay from* [*\\~,*]( [*\~Laura the SexBloggess\~*]( *and* [*\~Fantastic Frost\~*](*, our friends from* [*\~The Alliance Of Independent Sex Toy Testers\~*]( are by the amazing* [*\~Gema Ledesma.\~*](

1. The toy should have a smooth surface without sharp edges or excessive texture to avoid discomfort and injury. It should be made from body-safe, non-porous materials like silicone, stainless steel, or glass.
2. Choose a size appropriate for your experience level to ensure comfort and safety. Beginners should start with smaller toys to avoid discomfort and/or injuries.
3. Toys with a pointed tip can make insertion easier by allowing a more gradual entry. It’s recommended to insert these toys at an angle rather than straight in.
4. A flared base is essential to prevent the toy from getting lost inside. The base (or the handle) should be wider than the widest part of the insertable section. The base should also be firm and not easily bendable.
5. The toy should have a long enough length and a tapered neck to ensure that the sphincter can clamp down and hold the toy in place.
6. Some toys, like the [\~Njoy Pure Wand\~]( have a large, curved design that makes them difficult and uncomfortable to insert fully, which helps make them anal-safe. The body of the toy tapers down, allowing the sphincter to clamp down and hold the toy in place. Similarly, toys with sharp bends can also be safe because they are hard to insert completely.
7. Very long toys are less likely to get lost inside because it’s difficult to insert them fully by accident.
8. The toy should allow for easy control and should have loops or T-shaped bases for secure handling.

# Extra tips for safe anal fun

Using the right lubricant is crucial. Unlike the vagina, the anus does not self-lubricate, so a good water-based lube is essential for comfort and safety. Avoid using silicone lube with silicone toys, as it can degrade the material.

Always clean your toys thoroughly between uses, especially when switching between different parts of the body. This prevents the transfer of bacteria, fungi, and other pathogens, ensuring a safe and hygienic experience.
