As anal sex becomes more and more publically accessible and acceptable, people are increasingly asking questions about the reality of the safety of anal play.

With the addition of toys meant to improve the anal stimulus experience, such as butt-plugsand anal beads, off the charts orgasms are being experienced by all, which studies suggest can improve much more than just your bedroom booyah.
Anal beads have been shown to be effective at intensifying orgasms in solo play, or with a partner.
Because anal beads apply pressure to vital areas in both men and women, users often report more intensive or frequent, orgasms. Anal beads exert pressure on the prostate, a known erogenous zone in men, and pressure along the vaginal canal and possibly (depending on your anatomy) the “G-spot” in women. Improving orgasms improves libido by encouraging the rewards center in our brains to return to the bedroom more often. If it feels good, humans are more likely to repeat the behavior, upping the motivation to hit the sheets.

Regular sexual activity has been shown to lower stress levels and reduce systolic blood pressure. A noticeable reduction in blood pressure has all sorts of health benefits, including the overall health of your heart and vasculature. With heart disease being one of the biggest killers in the world, going booty bananas can help you live to a ripe old age. Not only that, but being comfortable enough in the bedroom to be adventurous and try new things can also improve confidence and pleasure in everyday life, improving self-esteem.

Making it a whole lot easier to “love oneself” and reap the benefits.
No Pain, All Gain
When used correctly, anal beads are an entirely painless experience.
Make sure to use (plenty of) water based lubricant on your very own string of beads prior to performance. Because the anus doesn’t self-lubricate, it’s really important from both a safety and comfort standpoint, to make sure your little butt buddy is lubed and ready. For beginners, most anal bead strands start with small balls and slowly increase in size before terminating in a finger ring, or similar controlled removal device. If you’re no longer a novice in the kingdom of ass, then they have multiple options and sizes for you, even strings that have no size variation at all
Part of the incredible experience of anal beads is the relaxing and enjoyable environment they not only encourage – but require.
Anal beads can provide excellent insight into meditative practice. Being relaxed is one of the golden rules associated with anal bead use (right behind lubrication and cleanliness!). Training your brain and your body how to relax and enjoy moments is an excellent way to train yourself in being present – a spiritual and psychological approach to wellbeing. Being presentinvolves one “slowing down our minds and deliberately grounding ourselves by focusing on what we are experiencing right now”. Sexual stimulation and orgasm also release hormone called prolactin which can help you feel sleepy and relaxed, making it easier to “get off” to dreamland. It has also been shown to reduce restlessness and encourage REM cycles.
A Wrinkle in Time
Anal beads increase pleasure, boosting time spent in the bedroom and increasing libido
Following a 10 year study, a clinical neurobiologist from Britain revealed results indicating that older couples with an active sex life were found to look five to seven years younger. Sex also releases the hormone oestrogen, which has a plumping effect on skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly in post menopausal women, in which oestrogen levels naturally drop. An American study correlated women who were menopausal and sexually active at least once per week, with oestrogen levels that were twice as high as their non-sexual peers.
Anal stimulus and orgasm are associated with a reduction in pain response.
Multiple medical journals have touted the link between orgasm and pain control. Links between orgasm and controlling the pain associated with menstrual cramps, chronic back and leg pain, even headache. This is achieved by what is believed to be the release of specific hormone during the orgasm that raise a pain threshold. Other studies suggest that just looking at your loved one, or vaginal stimulation specifically, can have similar effects. So instead of grabbing that tablet, go for your partner instead.
Even in light of all of their benefits outside of the bedroom, one thing is absolutely clear when it comes to anal beads – they’re fun. Anal beads have the ability to bring the next level of excitement into your bedroom repertoire. They give you and your partner a new angle on between the sheets communication and are also exceptional for adding a little more “OOoooooo” into your va-va-voom. They’re perfectly safe, even with solo play. So, sure, they can improve your heart health, decrease signs of aging, even help quell pain, but the one thing we’re actually looking forward to is using them.
