Anal plugs and beads are the most common types of anal toys. Butt plugs are common for beginners as they are easy to use. It’s recommended that newcomers to anal play use a small toy, such as a small butt plug, anal egg, or bullet vibrator, to get used to the sensation of having a foreign object in their anal passage. Once this is comfortable, many people enjoy playing with larger and more intense toys like dildos, prostate massagers, anal vibrators, or anal beads. 

Anal toys may be used by heterosexual and homosexual couples. Some anal toys, known as strap-ons, can even be worn by a woman around her waist so that she may anally penetrate a male or female partner.
