Could a bit of backdoor action be the key to supercharged orgasms? Learn more about how anal toys can help you reach the ultimate climax.


Just as anal is for everyone, so are anal orgasms. And they could very well be the key to taking your vaginal, clitoral or penile orgasm to earth-shattering new heights.

One of the best things about anal is that anyone and everyone can enjoy it, no matter what bits you have or who you’re attracted to. Not only is anal wonderful when served as the main dish, but you can also dabble with some anal action while stimulating other areas of your body.

So, let’s get straight to the juicy bit - here’s exactly how to have an anal orgasm using anal toys or other backdoor stimulation so you can take your next romp to orgasmic new levels.

Anal sensations

Here at Lovehoney, one of the main questions we get asked is “What does anal feel like?” To be perfectly honest, anal sex can take a few goes to get used to before you really start enjoying it. Everyone’s body is different and experience various sensations differently too, but for many people anal can almost feel like a reverse #2, but waayyy more pleasurable.

Whether you go up your clacker with a finger, an anal sex toy or even a full-blown pecker, there’s a good chance it’ll feel a little uncomfortable the first few times. Whether that’s down to nerves, anxiety, or the fact that your hind end can take a while to warm up, don’t be put off if your first anal experience isn’t as pleasurable as some people make out - it can take a few goes to get the hang of it and figure out which possies works best for you.

What is an anal orgasm?

To put things simply, an anal orgasm is when you pop your cookies through anal stimulation, whether that be rimming, pegging, fingering, touching or any other kind of penetration.

For the lads and penis owners of the world, the male anal orgasm can come on pretty quickly thanks to the sensitive nature of the region, particularly if you’re stimulating the P-spot or prostate. You can expect an anal orgasm to start as deeply intense contractions in your junk that spread throughout your whole body. They also often last longer than when you usually blow your wad, plus you might even be able to achieve multiple orgasms in a row.

Anal stimulation for women and vulva owners can also result in an explosive full-body finale. Many people don’t quite realise how far the clitoris extends, with the ‘legs’ often reaching far back into the bootyhole. The clitoris can also be stimulated via the perineum. So, for the people with vaginas, anal play not only stimulates all those sensitive nerves in the anus - it can also get that pretty pistachio going from around the back too. Because anal orgasms for vulva owners stimulate a whole bunch of incredibly sensitive areas, anal climaxes are often some of the most intense releases experienced. You can use anal toys to help you get there, and these can even be used at the same time as vaginal penetration or clitoral stimulation to really get your rocks off. Sometimes there’s nothing like a bit of double penetration or DP to completely push you over the edge.

How to have an anal orgasm?

The only way to reach anal orgasm is with anal stimulation, and using anal toys to trigger your tushy is a wonderful way to work yourself to an anal finale. Just like regular sex toys, there’s a whole heap of anal toys that have been specially designed to pleasure your peachy cheeks. Choose from butt plugs, anal beads, prostate massagers, anal dildos and anal vibrators. Here’s a quick rundown of how each toy can help you to achieve pure anal bliss.

Butt Plugs

Lovehoney Classic Silicone Medium Butt Plug

Butt plugs come in a whole bunch of different shapes, sizes and materials. Choose from vibrating plugs, glass plugs, tail plugs, large plugs, jewelled plugs, inflatable plugs… Honestly, the list is endless.

Butt plugs are perfect for creating that amazing filled up feeling. Plus, they’re a great way to warm your tushy up for some full throttle anal action. Use the Lovehoney Classic Silicone Medium Butt Plug for fulfilling anal play.

Anal Beads

Lovehoney Classic Silicone Anal Beads 10 Inch

Anal beads, like the BASICS Anal Beads 8 Inch, are an amazing way to explore your back passage. You can enjoy the ‘popping’ feeling as you insert the beads into your nipsy, but these sensations are even more intense as you remove the beads.

For best results, gently remove the beads as you approach the gland finale. The sensations will send you over the edge and on your way to anal bliss.

Prostate Toys

Aneros Trident MGX Prostate Massager

Although prostate toys are generally marketed towards the lads and penis owners, everyone can enjoy them. Not only are they perfectly curved for hitting that hidden walnut, but they’re also often nice and slimline, making them ideal for bot-bot beginners.

The Aneros Helix Syn Trident Silicone Prostate Massager is perfect for massaging those internal hot spots to bring you an explosive result.

Anal Dildos

Doc Johnson Crystal Jellies Anal Starter Dildo 6 Inch

Anal dildos are another great way to explore your caboose. Start small with something like the Doc Johnson Crystal Jellies Anal Starter Dildo 6 Inch and work your way up to a more girthy shaft.

Anal Vibrators

If you’re keen to explore more intense internal stimulation, then an anal vibrator like the Lovehoney Butt Tingler 10 Function Vibrating Butt Plug 3.5 Inch is the way to go. Not only do the vibes feel amazing up your jacksie, but they can also help you to relax for a more intense climax.

Some anal vibes even use a removable bullet vibrator so you can use it on other erogenous zones around the body.

Booty Kits

Tracey Cox Supersex Anal Beginner's Kit

Can’t decide which toy to try? Take the hard work out of guessing which will work best for you by picking up a booty bundle. Plus, you’ll save yourself a few dollars by buying everything altogether rather than separately.

Whatever toy you land on, just make sure to give it a good drenching of anal lube to make the experience even more pleasurable. The Lovehoney Discover Water-Based Anal Lubricant is a crowd fave and it’s compatible with all sex toy materials, so you don’t have to give it another thought.
