How to enhance your orgasm with anal beads

Ever heard of the “Seven Knots of Love”? This refers to a silk cord that was tied seven times and then inserted into the anus prior to intercourse. The cord was then pulled out during ejaculation, thereby stimulating both the anus and the prostate and intensifying orgasmic sensation.

This is exactly what modern-day anal beads are designed to do. Read our guide to learn more about the magic of these ancient toys.

What are anal beads?

Anal beads are a string of balls hanging together on a single cord, with a handle or flared base at one end for easy retrieval.

The beads are typically used to enhance your orgasms, whether when you have sex with your partner or on your own. They are inserted into the anus, one bead at the time. When pulled out, they stimulate the high concentration of sensitive nerve endings at the entrance of the anus, ultimately increasing your sexual pleasure.

Benefits and pleasures of anal beads

You may wonder why you would want to experience the sensation of anal beads, but if you are always craving new ways to experience pleasure and enjoying sex, then this toy is for you:

  • Right before hitting climax, remove the string of beads, one by one. This will intensify and possibly even extend your orgasm
  • When worn by women during intercourse, the pressure of their partner’s penis against the inner vaginal wall will also stimulate the beads, providing added sensations for both partners
  • Anal beads can be used during playful foreplay, to get you warmed up for a steamy session thereafter

A few tips for using anal beads

Pick anal beads that are right for you

Choose the right type, size, and material for your anal play. Silicone beads are typically the best option for beginners. We recommend starting with a string of smooth beads that increase in size from top to bottom – this will allow you to insert as many or as few beads as feels comfortable.

Good hygiene is key

As always when using sex toys, and particular in backstage play, practice and maintain good hygiene with your anal beads.

Lube-up!

For the most pleasurable and comfortable experience, use a generous amount of lubricant – the backdoor area doesn’t self-lubricate, so don’t skip this step!

Fancy some extra buzz?

Some anal beads vibrate – try buzzing beads for an intense pulsating and rippling feeling inside.

Speak with your partner

Communicate openly with your partner when using anal beads, tell each other what feels good and what doesn’t. Go slowly, one bead at a time. As always, you will have the best experience when both of you feel relaxed and comfortable.

Try the anal beads during masturbation

Use your new anal beads during a masturbation session to start exploring and getting used to them. This will allow you to take it easy and experiment with different sensations, until you find the ones your body really loves.
