I have heard that if you use toys anally, they can get lost inside you. Is this true?
Hi and thanks for the question!
There is some truth to what you say, not that it can actually get ‘lost’ inside you but that if you insert something into your anus it may get pushed or sucked too deep inside to be retrieved or pushed out. This may lead to a somewhat embarrassing trip to hospital, which I’m sure you’d want to avoid!
This is not to say you shouldn’t use any sex toys anally at all. Always only use toys which have been specifically designed for anal use. These toys will have an easy grip handle, loop or a flared base. This means that they are easy to keep hold of, gives you greater control over your (or a partner’s) pleasure, as well as giving you peace of mind and easy retrieval.
Always use lube too!
Top tip: Why not place a condom over a vibrating egg toy with a strong loop and try this out anally if you want an anal adventure? In fact, placing condoms over anal toys before use makes them both easier to clean afterwards and avoids them getting distastefully scented despite thorough washes.
Unlike the vagina, the anus does not have a physical barrier to the rest of the body. Yes the muscle there is designed to expel waste however the anus leads to the rectum which in turn leads to the instestinal passages.
Never insert anything that hasn’t been designed for sexual use and never use anything in your anus that hasn’t been designed for that area!
Hope this helps
