Anal Toys FAQ
1. Are anal toys safe to use?
Yes! When they're properly cleaned and used with lube, anal toys are as safe as can be. Make sure that any toy you insert anally has a flared base. Toys that don’t have a flared base can get lost inside the anal cavity, which is dangerous.
2. Can anal toys be used for both men and women?
Anal toys can be used across the gender spectrum! It’s a toy category that’s loved by all.
3. How should I clean and sanitize anal toys?
Good old soap and water will do. For non-motorized toys, you can thoroughly cleanse the toy by immersing it in boiling water for about five minutes. Then let the toy air dry.
4. Can anal toys be used for solo play?
Of course! Some people like inserting anal toys and rocking on their bums. Others like holding a vibrator against the base of their anal toy, so the vibrations travel internally. You could also pair an anal toy with another favorite toy for all-around sensation.
5. What lubes should I use with anal toys?
We recommend water-based lubes for use with our silicone toys. SUTIL Rich is extra thick for a comfortable glide and it’s pH-balanced for the anus. It’s also long-lasting, so you don’t have to disrupt your play to reapply.
6. Can I use anal toys if I have hemorrhoids or other anal conditions?
If you have any doubts or concerns surrounding anal sex, it’s always best to ask your doctor about them. Some general tips for careful play: Be sure that your toys are clean and well-lubricated. Also, increase your toy size and depth of penetration slowly, and if you experience any pain or bleeding, stop!
7. Are there any precautions I should take when using anal toys?
