So, you've decided to venture into the thrilling world of anal toys, have you? Good on ya, mate! Whether you're a fresh-faced beginner or a seasoned pro looking to add a bit more spice to your bedroom antics, you've come to the right place.

Let's face it, the world of anal toys can be a bit daunting, even for the most adventurous among us. But don't fret! It's not as scary as it sounds, and we're here to guide you through it with all the grace and elegance of a British butler serving tea.

So, buckle up, because we're about to take a wild ride into the cheeky world of anal toys. And remember, there's no shame in the game, just a whole lot of fun waiting to be had. So let's get cracking, shall we?

Why Anal Toys?

Ever had that moment when you're in the cookie aisle unsure if you should go for the caramel cookies or stick to the dependable choco-chip? Anal toys are a bit like that - an exciting new option to add to your sexual repertoire.

Anal toys aren't just for the daring and adventurous anymore. At Peaches & Cream, they've become as common as... well, peaches and cream. So, why should you go for them? Well, for starters, you're reading an article about them. So you're clearly curious.

Variety is the Spice of Life

Anal toys offer a unique kind of pleasure that can't be replicated by anything, apart from maybe a spontaneous flight to Bora Bora. And let's face it, most of us don't have that as an option. They open up a whole new world of sensations, particularly for men as they stimulate the P-Spot (Prostate), the male equivalent of the G-Spot.

Supercharge Your Orgasms

Fact: using anal toys can potentially supercharge your orgasms. A 2011 study showed that prostate stimulation leads to stronger, longer and, dare we say, thunderous orgasms.

Health Benefits? YouBet

Here's something funnier - Anal Toys offer health benefits too. It's like tucking into a pizza and finding out it's low calorie and packed with fibre (we wish, right). Prostate massage reduces the risk of prostatitis, prostate cancer and genital pain. It also improves erectile function, pee flow, and it can even treat erectile dysfunction.

So, if you're ready to spice up your sex life, boost your health, and chase that elusive, earthshattering orgasm, the door to the exciting world of anal toys isn't just ajar, it's flung wide open.

Understanding Your Body

Now mate, before going all Indiana Jones on your back door, it's important to do a wee bit of knowledge gathering about your own anatomy. Yes, I'm talking about Understanding Your Body, but don't worry, this won't feel like biology class all over again.

The path less travelled, otherwise known as your anus, is chock-full of nerve endings. And not just any nerve endings, we're talking about the sensitive kind that can be quite pleased through a tad of stimulation. In fact, your anal region might just be the party you've been skipping all this while!

An interesting fact - for those of you blokes - the prostate, that holy grail of male orgasm, can be best accessed through anal play. If you're feeling a bit adventurous, the chances are, you're in for a rollicking ride.

Anal toys, you see, aren't there just to add variety to your spice rack. They're designed according to the unique anatomical design of your body. So once you find a toy that works for you, it's as if you have the keys to a pleasure palace that you never knew existed. From butt plugs to anal beads, each come with their own unique offerings - it's like a buffet of pleasure, and you're invited.

Before you wonder, 'Hey, does everyone use them?'...

Let's get real here. Anal toys are a growing trend in New Zealand and worldwide. With more people exploring the world of sexual pleasure, there's been a significant increase in anal toy sales. Just to put this in perspective -

Year Anal Toy Sales (NZD)
2017 10 Million
2018 12 Million
2019 15 Million
2020 20 Million

That's right! A steady increase each year, and the popularity soars with no sign of slowing down.

Getting Started: Choose the Right Toy

Peaches & Cream's massive collection of anal toys might seem like an invitation to a gourmet buffet for your backdoor. It happens to the best of us! But before stuffing your shopping cart willy-nilly, let's chat about finding the right fit. After all, one size doesn’t fit all, and choosing your first anal toy logically should not be similar to picking socks.

Every bum’s journey begins at their own pace. You might fancy a glamorous glass plug or might lean towards more discrete silicone beads. It's not the Oscars, darling, so there's no need for a red carpet parade of toys. Start with something shaped like a finger until you're comfortable for the next step. We’ve seen rookies going gaga over Lovense Edge 2. If a prostate massager sings your bum’s praises, you're in good company!

While choosing a toy, make sure it's safe for your body. You don't want any nasty surprises, like a bad reaction. Peaches & Cream prides itself on providing products made of body-safe materials. See if the description mentions words such as silicone, glass, or stainless steel. Chuck away anything inflatable, sharp, and with exposed batteries as if on a cleaning spree. Remember, your bum’s health trumps everything.

Also, don’t ignore the all-important base of an anal toy. It's there for a reason, not just for some fashionista statement. The base prevents the toy from taking an unplanned trip up your Chocolate Canal without a return ticket. As a golden rule, make sure the base is wider than the toy's maximum insertable diameter.

And finally, on this grand tour of "Choosing the Right Toy", we must talk about lube. A lube is your best ally, your faithful squire in this Knights of the Round Backside Table venture. But remember to pair the right lube with the ideal toy. Water-based lube is a universal fit, but you might want to experiment with other variants too. Just avoid using silicone-based lube with silicone toys. A case of same repels same, you see?

Lubrication Matters

Oops, we've slipped into the lubes now. Humor aside, you just can't undermine the significance of a good slippy material when you're getting down and adventurous.

Turns out even the right lubricant is critical for your anal toy endeavors. Don't worry mate, we've got your back... err, backend sorted.

When you're dealing with a territory that isn't naturally as wet as others, you'll require some help from your slippery friend, the lube. Unlike the vagina, the anus doesn't self-lubricate - a little felt tip fact there for you if ever you're on a quiz show and the question pops up!

So, remember, lube isn't an optional extra or a"nice-to-have"; it's an absolute essential. Denying it is like swallowing Vegemite without bread - unthinkable, downright crazy, and a rough experience overall!

Here's another tip, in the trusted world of bum fun, water-based and silicone-based lubes swiftly take the top-rating. I can hear you asking, "What about oil-based lubes?" Hold your horses, we're coming to that.

Lube Type Pros Cons
Water-based Easy peasy clean up, friendly with all toys Goes evaporating after a bit
Silicone-based Lasts longer than a Kiwi summer BBQ, top pick for inside the pool shenanigans Not compatible with silicone toys
Oil-based Long-lasting and very moisturising Can't use with latex condoms, tough clean up

Oil-based lubes can play havoc with latex condoms and are not the easiest to clean up after. So, unless you're having a total field day down there with heaps of hydration on the cards, stick with water or silicone-based slip juice.

Oh, a word of caution here - stay away from anything that boasts "numbing" effects. Sure, we all get iffy about the initial discomfort, but trust me, that "ouch" is your body's way of saying "easy now, cowpoke". Ignoring these signals can lead to injuries, and nobody wants a ruined booty call, eh?

Take It Slow: Techniques for Beginners

We've covered the essentials like lube and types of anal toys. So, let's delve into the nitty-gritty details of getting started with using these toys, shall we?

Yeah, jumping straight in might sound thrillin', but with respect to anal toys, patience is more than just virtue – it could save you a whole lot of discomfort. Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither should your fondness for anal play.

Getting to grips with anal toys begins with – and you'll guffaw at how simple this sounds – relaxing. Your muscles down there are particularly tight, especially if you're new to this. It's like yoga, but for your backdoor. It might feel a tad bit awkward to start with, but practice makes perfect. Just like yoga!

Onwards to positioning. Try a few different ones to see what works best. No not that! Suuure, experimenting can be fun but your aunt's chandelier swing is not for this purpose! Knees tucked up towards your chest might be a winner or lying on your side could for some folks. Think about, wherever you feel most chill, go with that if it's feasible.

Then comes the moment of truth. The one you've been feeling a jolly mix of excitement and nerves over: insertion. Remember the golden rule: it's not a race! Use your (well-lubed) fingers to start with, engaging in a bit of dilation foreplay, and when you and your body feel ready, gently introduce the toy.

"Wait a minute – did she just say foreplay, with yourself?" I hear you ponder aloud. Absolutely, I advocate for self-love and props on you for picking up on that! Add a dash of clitoral stimulation or penile stroking to the mix; it's proven to help speed up the relaxation process.

Finally, communication is key - even if it's with yourself. If something doesn't feel quite right, it's important not to ignore those signals. Anal play is supposed to be an enjoyable experience, not a laureate endurance test.

Beyond the Basics: Advanced Techniques

As you dive into the deep end of anal play, you've got the basics nailed (so to speak). So, what's next? Ready to explore an abyss even the Titanic wouldn't dare venture? Well, strap in brave soul, because we're cocooning into Anal Play Level 2.0!

Let's start with size. After comfortable with a smaller toy, it's time for an upgrade. Think of it as moving from a cosy studio to a swanky penthouse (with a view to die for). But remember, if it feels like you're attempting to shove in the Eiffel Tower, dial it back! Slow and steady wins the race.

Variety my friend, is never a vice! Anal beads, prostate massagers, anal vibrators...helllooo options! It's like a bingo night at your local pub. Each different toys provide a unique sensation, you'll be shaking your tail feathers in anticipation.

Then there's double penetration. It's like eating a vanilla sundae while being given a back rub. How's that for multitasking?

Now pay attention mate, when you're playing cricket you should know all the field positions. Similarly, in anal play, explore with different positions. On all fours, lying flat on your belly, a side hustle... they all bring their own flavours to the table (and some quite spicy).

Ah the aneros! This little darling does the work for you. Pop it in and it'll hit all the right spots while you go about your day making a cuppa or wondering why your footy team can't score to save their lives.

One more thing. Remember to always keep up the communication. If your body's sending you a WhatsApp message, read it and for God's sake, respond! It’s just like when your mate sends a text entire week before Friday night pub-crawl: ‘’Alright, Mates? See ya down at the local?” No ignoring – you RSVP!

Safety First: Cleaning and Hygiene

Let's delve into the equally thrilling and riveting realm of safety measures. Hold on to your seats. No, really, hold tight! This ride is about to get a bit bumpy. Remember, no good story begins with "So, I ignored basic hygiene standards and..."

First and foremost, ensure your toy collection is clean and well maintained. After all, cleanliness is next to godliness. And here, it's right next to the more enthralling endeavour of anal play. But how do you clean your toys properly, you ask? Fear not. Here's a simple , non-exhaustive list to get you started:

  • Use a mild, unscented soap and warm water.
  • Sterilise any silicone, glass, stainless steel or Pyrex toys in boiling water.
  • Avoid soaking electronics such as vibrators or toys with parts that can't be removed.
  • Use a sex toy cleaner if you're feeling fancy.

Remember, a clean toy is a safe toy.

Let's not forget the lubricant. And by this, I don't mean your witty chat or cheeky remarks. Queue the anal lubricant! Yes, that's right. It's the secret ingredient in your recipe for pleasure. Anal play without adequate lubrication is like scraping toast without butter. You deserve much better, and your toast does too.

One does not simply walk into Mordor, and one does not simply delve into anal play without taking care of these crucial factors. It's not rocket science, or an elaborate dance routine. It's about minding the small, yet important details in your pursuit of pleasure. And while hygiene and safety might not have the same frisson as finding that sweet spot, they're instrumental in ensuring your good times don't turn into a downhill adventure.

Exploring Different Types of Anal Toys

Well, we've chatted about hygiene, cleaning your toys, and how a good quality lube can make your Friday nights go with a zing. Now, let's talk about the pièce de résistance – the toys themselves. You'll be amazed by the sheer variety out there waiting to tickle your fancy.

So you start with the most common ones, Anal Beads. Picture this – a strand of same-sized or increasing diameter beads — Aye, it sounds more like a funky necklace, doesn't it? But wait till you've tested the water, or should we say, the abyss? These beads are designed to provide escalating pleasure as they are inserted one by one, and boy oh boy, the climax while pulling them out... Let's just say, it's bobby-dazzler!

Next up, the Butt Plugs. Now, don't let that blunt name put you off! Imagine a diamond-shaped toy, a wee, tapered tip for easy insertion, a bulb for stimulation, and a skinny neck crowned with a flared base to keep things from getting lost. Their static nature prompts your body to feel more adventurous stimulation while you're busy doing any other naughty or innocent activities you've planned.

For the explorers among you, there're the Anal Dildos & Probes. They may sound like something out of Star Trek, but rest assured, their primary mission is to seek out pleasure. Unlike butt plugs, these are meant for in-and-out action, mimicking the good old sex.

There's also the Prostate Massagers. Designed to stimulate that mythical male 'P spot.' I tell you mate; it's like hunting for Bilbo's ring — Except when you find this ring, it could lead to mind-blowing, sheet-grabbing orgasms instead of a run-in with Gollum!

Last but not least, let's not forget the Vibrating Anal Toys. These little powerhouses of pleasure combine, motion, and vibration, delivering waves of pleasure deeper than Poseidon's Abode.
