Anal beads, also known as “Thai beads,” consist of a strand of silicone, metal, plastic, rubber, latex, nylon or jelly molding with a retrieval handle located at the end. Both men and women take pleasure from the sensation as the anal beads pass through the two ringed sphincter muscles in the anus. Anal beads are graduated in size, and beginners may prefer smaller beads, while experienced users often enjoy the pressure from larger beads. Vibrating models are also manufactured.
The proper use of this toy involves lubricating each bead with anal lube and inserting them, one by one, into the anus. To facilitate reaching orgasm, the user or their partner remove the beads at a slow, steady pace, or can experiment by pulling the beads in and out of the anus. The beads can also be enjoyed without the presence of an orgasm. If partners share the anal beads, it is important to sterilize them by boiling them in hot water. After each use, the beads should be sterilized.
