Ann Summers | Lingerie Guide

If you're curious about clit stims or baffled by bullets, then you're in the right place. Unless you know exactly what you're looking for, we know that buying sex toys isn't always as easy as ABC. In fact, it's more like WTF. So, to make things a little bit clearer we've created a handy sex toy guide just for you. From anal beads to vibrators, if features everything you need to know about the world of sex toys...

Anal Beads

Anal beads are a chain of small, medium or large sized beads. They are inserted into the anus to give incredible sensations during sex or foreplay, and when slowly removed at the point of climax you can experience intense, full-body orgasms. Make sure you use lubrication with all anal toys, as it's specifically designed to ensure enhanced stimulation and comfort.

Anal Douches

An Anal Douche is a must-have for clean, safe anal fun. Designed to be used before anal sex or masturbation, it comes with a squeezy bulb that fills with water and a slim nozzle that's inserted into the anus. It's a great way to prepare you and your partner for anal sex, and it's really easy to use.

Anal Fingers

An Anal Finger is the ideal toy for anal play beginners. Featuring a small, smooth plug on a stretchy ring, it slides securely onto the finger for total control. Simply give it to your partner to tease you with during sex, or enjoy it solo during masturbation. Make sure you use lubrication with all anal toys, as it's specifically designed to ensure enhanced stimulation and comfort.

Ben Wa Balls

Ben Wa Balls are small, marble-sized balls that are inserted into the vagina. With regular use they'll give your pelvic floor muscles a strong workout, resulting in tighter vaginal walls and improved control during sex. They can also enhance sensitivity and give stronger orgasms. Ben Wa Balls are different from Jiggle Balls, as they're not connected with a cord. We advise that beginners start with Jiggle Balls, as the cord makes them easier to remove.

Bullets

A Bullet is a small, bullet-shaped vibrator designed for clitoral stimulation. It can also be used on nipples, testicles and on the skin for enhanced stimulation during foreplay. It's perfect for pinpoint pleasure, and its small size makes it the ideal travel companion and a must-have for every girl's naughty drawer.

Butt Plugs

Butt Plugs are bulb-shaped toys which are inserted into the anus. They come in small, medium and large sizes, which should be selected depending on your level of experience. Designed to be worn for a short amount of time before sex, they stretch and relax the sphincter muscles. This heightens pleasure and ensures that you are prepared for anal play. Make sure you use lubrication with all anal toys, as it's specifically designed to ensure enhanced stimulation and comfort.

Clit Clips

A Clit Clip is an erotic accessory. Resembling a long bobby pin, it slides over both sides of the clitoris to exert pressure and enhance stimulation. When worn during sex it improves sensitivity, and it can provide extra pleasure during other bedroom antics too.

Clitoral Stimulators

A Clitoral Stimulator is designed to massage and vibrate the clitoris for amazing external stimulation. It can be used during foreplay to get pulses racing, alone during masturbation or for additional stimulation during sex.

Cock Rings

A Cock Ring is a simple O-shaped toy that's worn around the penis for enhanced stimulation, and it's perfect for couples. It works by stopping the blood from flowing back down penis, which hardens and prolongs erections - so you can both enjoy better sex for longer. There are many different types of cock ring available, including metal, silicone, leather and vibrating cock rings. Metal cock rings should be placed onto the penis when it is soft, but stretchy silicone ones can be worn when the penis is already erect. Simply place the ring over the penis and slide onto the base. If it comes with a vibrating unit, make sure this is facing upwards. The vibrations heighten pleasure and stimulate the clitoris during sex, so you can both get your kicks together!

Cock Sleeves

A Cock Sleeve is a stretchy, tube-like toy that comes with lots of stimulating ridges, waves and bumps. It's designed to be placed over the shaft of the penis and moved up and down in a stroking motion, providing an incredible masturbation experience. It can also be placed over your favourite vibrator for new, exciting sensations. We recommend using plenty of lube for enhanced stimulation and comfort.

Dildos

A Dildo is designed for internal use and can be used by women and men. You can choose from a wide range of sizes, colours and styles and many of them also come with a suction cup at the base for hands-free fun - enabling it to fit securely on any flat surface like a floor or wall. We recommend using plenty of lube for enhanced stimulation and comfort.

Eggs

Eggs (sometimes called Love Eggs) are small, round vibrators that are inserted into the vagina for breathtaking internal pleasure. They often come with a handy remote control which operates all the spine-tingling vibrations, so all you need to do is simply lay back, slip it in and turn it on. They're great for discreet pleasure and perfect for fun foreplay with a partner - as they'll love taking charge of the controls.

It's designed to look like a large torch (or beer can) for discreet storage, and contains a hidden sleeve inside the case with a realistic vagina design. To use, simply apply lots of lube, enter through the realistic opening and make big stroking movements whilst gripping the case.

Glass Dildos

A Glass Dildo is perfect for anyone who wants to try new sensations. Made from body-safe and super strong borosilicate glass, it can be used for thrilling temperature play by simply heating or cooling with water prior to sex or masturbation. We recommend using plenty of lube for enhanced stimulation and comfort.

G-Spot Toys

Our G-Spot Toys are designed for enhanced internal stimulation for women. They come with a curved tip to stimulate the G-Spot directly, resulting in stronger orgasms and better pleasure.

Harness

A harness is made from adjustable straps that are worn around the hips. An important part of a Strap On, it often comes with a dildo attachment for kinky role play with a partner.

Jiggle Balls are small, round balls that are connected with a stretchy cord. Designed to be worn internally by women, they give your pelvic floor muscles a seriously strong workout - resulting in bigger, better orgasms and more control during sex. They're also individually weighted for extra stimulation, giving you even more of a reason to wear them. Pop them in when you're alone, or wear them out and about if the mood takes you!

Penis Enlargers

A Penis Enlarger is designed to maximise the size of a man's erection. As well as getting a bigger size, it's a great way to improve performance and prolong erections. Penis Enlargers often come in the form of a cylinder or tube with a pump attached. The cylinder creates a strong, stimulating vacuum causing the penis to expand when pumped.

Perineum Massagers

A Perineum Massager is a vibrating male anal toy that's specifically designed to stimulate the perineum. The perineum is the area between the anus and testicles, and when massaged from the inside it can provide increased stimulation and stronger orgasms. Make sure you use lubrication with all anal toys, as it's specifically designed to ensure enhanced stimulation and comfort.

Pinwheels

Anal play is a great way to enhance stimulation and add whole new level of pleasure to your sex life. But, if you haven't tried it before, we understand that it can be quite daunting. Thankfully though, there are lots of different toys and lubes out there that have been specifically designed to make everything more comfortable and pleasurable. So, to help you feel totally confident and ready for action, we've put together a handy guide that's filled with everything you need to know about anal play...

BEFORE

Grab Some Lube

Firstly, we recommend investing in some slippery anal lube. Anal lube is generally thicker than normal lube and doesn't dry up as quickly, so you shouldn't need to re-apply so often. It's essential for making everything feel smooth and pleasurable, so make sure that you're fully stocked before you get going.


Beginners will love our Booty Relax Anal Lube, which includes an added blend of minty, couling and relaxing ingredients. Apply a generous amount when you're ready to get started.

Keep It Clean

Secondly, you might want to try an Anal Douche. It's not essential, but it's a simple way to prepare you and your partner for clean, safe fun. Plus, it's really easy to use and will make you feel even more confident. An Anal Douche usually comes in two parts, and includes a squeezy bulb and insertable nozzle.

Before anal play, fill the bulb with lukewarm water by giving it a squeeze underwater. Then insert the nozzle into the anus, using anal lube if preferred. It's best to do this on your side whilst lying on a towel, making sure there is a toilet nearby. Once the nozzle is inserted just slightly past the sphincter, simply squeeze the water-filled bulb. The water will then be released into the rectum. Just one squeeze will do, and once the water has been released the nozzle can be removed. Huld the water inside the rectum for about 15-20 seconds, then sit on the toilet and gently release the water. Repeat until the water runs clear.


We recommend the Booty Bath Douche, as it's suitable for both beginners and experts.

And...Relax

Finally, you may also want to try using a Butt Plug. These come in small, medium and large sizes, and should be used depending on your experience level. To use, simply apply some lube and insert a short time before sex. This stretches and relaxes the sphincter, preparing you for a more comfortable and pleasurable anal play experience.


Why not try our Anal Connoisseur Butt Plug Set? It comes with 3 different sizes, so you can start off small and work your way up.

DURING

Start Small

If you're new to the pleasures of anal play, then you'll probably want to start with a small toy like our Anal Finger. It's very unintimidating, and slips onto the finger allowing you total control. It's perfect for experimenting when you're alone, and even better when handed to a partner during sex.


We recommend our Anal Finger Toy - don't forget to use anal lube too.

Enhance Your Climax

Anal Beads are another great way to enhance anal pleasure. They can make orgasms even more intense, and are definitely worth trying when you feel you're ready. Featuring a series of soft, smooth beads on a chain, they are inserted (with some lube) before sex to give extra sensations, and then slowly removed at the point of climax for an unforgettable orgasm experience.

We recommend our Small Thai Love Beads, as they're great for beginners too.

Feel The Buzz

Vibrating anal toys are a fantastic way to add new sensations to anal play. With multiple speeds or functions, they can be used during sex or masturbation to enhance your pleasure. Simply apply some lube, switch on and enjoy the breathtaking buzz.


We love the Small Vibrating Butt Plug which comes with a handy speed dial to control the intensity.

AFTER

Keep It Fresh

It's really important to keep your toys, and yourself, squeaky clean and fresh after anal play. So we recommend keeping some of our Buzz Fresh Wipes in the bedroom, so that they're always on hand when the action's over. We advise against using make-up removing wipes, baby wipes or soap and water to clean sex toys, as they may contain chemicals. This can damage the toys, causing materials and coatings to breakdown and cause potential harm. They're also toy-friendly, skin-friendly and great value.


Our Buzz Fresh Wipes are toy-friendly, skin-friendly, and great value.

Bag It Up

If you want to keep your anal toys in perfect condition, then make sure that they're all safely stored away after every use. Otherwise, they may come into contact with other materials causing damage to the toy. Therefore, we advise keeping them separately stored. It's safer, more discreet and great for when you're travelling too.

When it comes to owning a sex toy, it's all about give and take. In order for them to take care of you, you need to show them a little bit of TLC too. That way, they'll look fresh, feel amazing and last a lifetime. So, if you want to keep your favourite toys squeaky clean and looking as good as new, you need to give them the treatment they deserve. So make sure you take a look at all our important Toy Care facts and show your toys some love...

How to Store Sex Toys

In order to keep your beloved battery-powered friends in perfect condition, they should be stored in their original packaging. This will ensure they don't react with any materials that they come into contact with - keeping them fresher, for longer.

Material reactions

Even though our sex toys are rigorously tested and 100% body-safe, the materials are sensitive and could react against each other. This may cause some of them to lose their shape and become...err, floppy. For this reason toys should always be stored separately from each other.


We recommended keeping them in separate storage bags like our Black Patent Vibe Bag

Cleaning Toys

We recommend all sex toy owners use our Buzz Fresh range to clean their toys after use. This will kill any bacteria that might be present, keeping them spotlessly clean and ready for the next use. We advise against using make-up removing wipes, baby wipes or soap and water to clean sex toys, as they may contain chemicals. This can damage the toys, causing materials and coatings to breakdown and cause potential harm.

We recommend all sex toy owners use our Buzz Fresh range to clean their toys after use.
