Should You Stick This Up Your Butt?

Are you an authority on anal or that person who goes to the ER with something weird stuck up their butt?

Posted on

Toys are awesome for anal play, but not all toys are created equal when it comes to butt safety.

Obviously, every body and butt is different, so a toy that is suitable for one person might be ~too much to handle~ for another. But when it comes to using toys and objects anally, there are certain factors that reduce injury, abrasion of the anal tissue, and risk of it getting stuck or lost up there.

So for the sake of this quiz, we're not asking if you CAN stick something up your butt, we're asking if you SHOULD. Also, assume that in each case, proper safety and protective measures (lube, condoms when necessary, etc.) are taken.

  1. 1. How about this vibrator?

    Yes
    No
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    You shouldn't use this for anal play.

    Unless you want to risk a toy getting lodged inside you, a toy needs to have a flared base, which acts as a ~stopper~ if your anal muscles try to clench and pull the toy inside of you. So, the Gigi 2 doesn't fit those rules.

    Wrong!

    Those nails have got to go before they can be used for any sort of anal penetration. Nails should be kept short to avoid scratching anal tissue, which is thin and easily torn by sharp objects.

    Yes
    No
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    You shouldn't use this for anal play.

    This Fun Factory Stronic Eins vibrator might have a ridge at the base, but that's not enough to prevent anal mechanisms from clenching and sucking the object inside of you.

  8. 8. What about this large grenade-shaped butt plug?

    etsy.com
    Yes
    No
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    You can totally use this for anal play.

    This Grenade Butt Plug has a flared base and, while the texture would probably be a bit much on a dildo used for thrusting, it's perfectly safe as a plug.

  9. 9. How about this Octopussy Dildo?

    babeland.com
    Yes
    No
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    You shouldn't use this for anal play.

    Well, the shape of this Octopussy Dildo DOES count as a flared base since there’s no way to get the whole thing inside. But the texture isn't anal friendly.

    You shouldn't use this for anal play.
  10. 10. Can this wine bottle stopper replace a butt plug?

    etsy.com
    Yes
    No
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    You can totally use this for anal play.

    As long as you use a condom, this Antler Wine Bottle Stopper is safe and useable as a butt plug — though probably not as pleasurable or effective as an actual anal toy. The antler portion could be porous and the ridges and grooves could possibly get ~stuff~ trapped on it, so for a safe, clean time, use a condom.

    You can totally use this for anal play.
  11. 11. How about this ~big boss~ vibrator?

    babeland.com
    Yes
    No
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    You shouldn't use this for anal play.

    You might be tempted to think that the loop handle on this Big Boss Vibrator is enough of an anchor to prevent this vibrator from getting lost — but what happens if you let go in the throes of passion and have no flared base on the toy to protect you? Skip this for anal play.

    You shouldn't use this for anal play.
  12. 12. Can you use the handle of this wooden spoon anally?

    walmart.com
    Yes
    No
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    This can totally be used for anal play.

    It might not be a sex toy, but as long as you use a condom for sanitary and safety reasons (because splinters), this wooden spoon has a flared base that will prevent any accidents. So go for it!

    This can totally be used for anal play.
  13. 13. What about this corded bullet?

    babeland.com
    Yes
    No
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    You shouldn't use this for anal play.

    You might think that you can get away with sticking this Babeland Silver Bullet in your butt because hey, you can pull it out by the cord if it gets stuck! But not only would pulling the bullet out by the cord risk breaking the cord and leaving the bullet inside, but you also don't have control over where it goes once it's inside of you or how deep. Plus, the seam around the middle and the hole where the cord enters the bulb would collect lube and other gunk. Skip it for anal play.

    You shouldn't use this for anal play.
