Before you run to your girlfriend’s jewellry box in search of her pearl necklace—sorry for the visual, but I’m pretty sure someone has tried it—read on to learn about the safe and sexy way to indulge in this new addition to your anal play catalog.

Get a Quality Set

Not all anal beads are created equal. You want to make sure to get yourself a good set of silicone beads with a solid, silicone connecting cord. Beads that are held together with a knotted nylon thread are hazardous and unhygienic, not to mention uncomfortable. You want beads that can be easily disinfected with boiling water and that won’t break apart after one use (talk about an embarrassing trip to the hospital.)

You also want to avoid cheap plastic beads. Be sure to inspect them carefully before each use and if they’re looking less than new or have any kind of stress marks on them, throw them away and invest in a new set. You’re ass deserves the best.

Use a Condom

If you plan on sharing your beads with a partner, it’s especially important to ensure that they’re clean before each use. One way to be certain is to use them with a condom. Beads on a ridged cord work best for this, as condoms can more greatly affect the sensation of a flexible strand.

If only you will be enjoying the beads, I would still suggest a condom, only because it makes for easier clean up. Also, you don’t want to be wondering what old germs might be lurking on the beads as you have your way with them.

Use Lots of Lube

As applies to anything you choose to shove up your bum, anal beads should be well lubricated. The anus is a very delicate part of the body and as such is prone to small tears or fissures. These are really painful and take some time to heal, so be really liberal with the lube. You might even want to apply it more than once per session. Just be sure to use a water based lube, especially if your beads are made of silicone.

Try it Yourself First

Even if your partner is super excited to get her hands on the beads and pleasure you in ways that you have never before experienced, try them out on yourself first. You want to get some idea of how your body responds to them and about what your boundaries and preferences are.

Communication is important with all types of anal play and it’s easier to convey your needs to your partner if you know exactly what they are. Start out slowly, inserting one or two beads at a time and don’t rush it. See if you even like how it feels before involving another person. Who knows? Maybe you’ll be suggesting your girlfriend use them instead?
