Anal Vibrators

Anal vibrators are vibrating toys designed for use in the anus. Anal vibrators come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and can be used by anyone with an anus to stimulate the rear's sensitive internal and external nerve endings.

Many anal vibes are curved to stimulate the prostate gland (or 'P-spot'), making them especially pleasurable for men. Others include textures for external stimulation of the perineum, and some can even be operated via remote control.

Toys for anal play should always feature flared bases or finger loops so they're safe to use in the butt. Many anal vibrators start with a tapered head to help ease insertion, and it's always best to use plenty of anal lubricant like Lovehoney Discover Water-Base Anal Lube when playing with an anal toy.
