Ever since you first learned to masturbate, you knew that stimulating your genital region was the way to go.

It was intuitive, not to mention it fulfilled your sexual needs to a tee.

But can you do better?

The answer is a resounding yes!

But it requires the use of a region that most don't normally associate with sexual pleasure: the anus.

The booty is not just for looks, but for achieving intense sexual pleasure as well.

Tapping into this region will amplify your sexual pleasure.


A great way to accomplish this anal stimulation is by using anal beads.

Get ready to blow your mind with this ultimate guide to anal beads for beginners!

What are anal beads?

Anal beads are a sex toy that is made up of multiple spheres or balls.

The insertion and removal of these "beads" into and out of the anus and rectum provide pleasure to the user.

Here's a pretty good G-rated image of what anal beads look like:

This classic scene gives you a clear picture of what anal beads are.

Anal beads are for men and women

There is no such thing as anal beads for men, or gay anal beads or anything like that.

Especially considering the fact that all humans have exactly the same physiology when it comes to the anus!

What do anal beads look like?

Although there are hundreds of different variations of anal beads, they almost always have these particular characteristics:

  • Distinct beads made of various materials.

  • Beads are connected, via string or molded as a single (flexible) unit.

  • All anal beads will have a distinct ring or a "stopper" at the end.

The "stopper" in particular is crucial when using anal beads, for two main reasons.

The first is to make it easier to pull the beads out when you are done.

The second is to make sure the beads do not slip into your anal cavity completely!

Note how the bead size changes!

Each individual bead on a set of anal beads do not have to be the same size.

In fact the way the beads change in size can greatly affect the pleasure you receive.

Most anal beads increase in size to ease the beads into you.

But those that decrease in size can lead to more pleasure when removing them.

Just something to keep in mind when selecting your anal beads.

What do anal beads feel like?

While this may come as a surprise to many, anal beads are not known for providing a constant stream of pleasure.

In reality, anal beads primarily take their effect when being inserted and removed across two ringed sphincter muscles in your anal cavity.

This creates a series of pleasurable sensations as each bead passes these muscles!

The fact that anal beads are distinct objects that can be cleaned keeps things much more sanitary in the bedroom.

It's a lot better than using your finger or a penis!

How to Use Anal Beads (for maximum pleasure)

You now know the basics to anal beads and why they can and should become an integral part of your sex life!

But how do you use anal beads specifically to complement your overall sexual activity?

Here are the two biggest ways:

Insert anal beads for foreplay

This is a great warm-up for sex or for more intense masturbation.

Gently insert beads one-by-one.

And remove them slowly to actively stimulate your anus.

Slowly inserting and removing anal beads is a great way to warm up to more intense sexual activity.

As to how to insert the anal beads, the only real rule is to always make sure you are properly lubricated.

This is because the rectum is very fragile and can tear or rip without lube.

Just the insertions themself will be quite pleasurable and this will slowly turn you on more and more.

Here at Blissful Cherry, our primary anal bead offerings start off with small beads that gradually get larger and larger.

This is perfect for building up pleasure with each insertion.

Remove anal beads just as you climax!

After getting the beads into you, they will be slightly noticeable in your anal cavity while you move on with other activities.

But they won't be the main focus - they will supplement any stimulation to your genitals.

Basically enhancing the rest of your masturbation / sex session.

But when your libido is at it's highest, it is a good idea to remove them slowly to bring you closer to climax!

Removing anal beads at the point of climax will give you a spine-chilling orgasm.

Or more commonly, remove the beads just as you are beginning your orgasm!

This allows both your vagina and your anus to be stimulated all at once.

Creating a one-of-a-kind orgasm unlike any other you've ever experienced!

Use anal beads as a focal point throughout!

Although not as common, people who really love anal stimulation prefer this method.

Instead of just letting the anal beads sit inside of you, play with them whenever you want some additional anal stimulation.

Just remember that pleasure comes from insertion and removal of the beads!

And if you are with a partner, having him or her remove anal beads at their discretion is really kinky and fun.

Even just one bead every few minutes can provide short bursts of immense pleasure!

General guidelines for buying and using anal beads

Anal beads are a simple product, but can bring immense energy and variety to your sex life.

But so often, people fail to recognize some other key facts and safety tips before jumping right into anal beads.

Here are some tips that can help you out, either with purchasing or general usage.

Do not purchase beads that use nylon string.

They are not only lower quality and uncomfortable when being used, but they are also very difficult to properly clean.

These should be avoided at all times.

Instead, be sure to only purchase plastic or silicone anal beads, both of which are very easy to clean.

Anal beads with nylon string are a big no-no due to their propensity to collect bacteria.

Start off with smaller beads and increase size later.

Especially if you are an absolute beginner, you may think you can handle anal beads.

But until you actually get them and try them out for yourself, you will not be 100% sure.

It's better to start off smaller to see how your body reacts to anal beads for the first time.

And then potentially move up to larger anal beads if you are up for it.

Our anal beads at Blissful Cherry are ideal for beginners for precisely this reason.

And really, ideal for users of all experience levels since the beads gradually increase in size from 0.5 inch to 1.0 inch at the base.

There are many shapes and sizes to choose from at Blissful Cherry
Despite their length, these anal beads are great for beginners due to the variation in bead size!

Over time, you can gradually insert the rest of the beads, or even upgrade to larger anal bead products.

Take it step-by-step and you can eventually end up taking on huge anal beads for maximum pleasure!

Always remember to clean your anal beads before or after use!

This is obviously for safety reasons.

Cleaning your beads will help you to avoid infection from any fecal matter and bacteria that may be present.

And remember that even if your anal beads look clean, you can only be sure by actually washing them.

No matter how clean they appear, be sure to always clean your anal beads between sessions.

The easiest way to clean is to boil your beads in water for a few minutes. Then they should be good to go.

If cleaning just before using them again, just be sure to let them cool before inserting them back in!
