A sex toy designed for the anus. It consists of several small balls that are connected together, which are inserted into the rectum, from smallest to largest. The beads can be removed at varying speeds, or kept inside the rectum for an extended period.
Unlike butt plugs, anal beads can sometimes get loose and remain inside a person. Modern anal beads have a ring at the end that is meant to prevent this from happening, but it’s still recommended to count the beads after using.
As with most sex toys, and especially ones inserted into the anus, anal beads should not be shared between partners unless fully sterilized or coved with a barrier such as a condom.
