What is an Anal Hook?
An anal hook is a sex toy, often metal, that is inserted into the ass and used as either a leverage or posture punishment/tool, or as a general sex toy. Most often anal hooks look like a large fishing hook, replacing the barb on one end with a round ball and retaining the loop where either a rope is tied to use with an anchor point or to be manipulated manually by a partner. Unlike many sex toys, anal hooks are traditionally associated with bondage and discomfort rather than direct pleasure but depending on the person it is being used on, can also enhance the pleasure or sensory reception of the submissive.
The origins of anal hook’s as a sex toy are not known, but there are references to them several hundred years ago as a torture instrument. Most commonly one can find them being used in conjunction with rope or metal bondage or as an element to predicament bondage. Once the anal hook has been inserted in the sub or bottom it is generally attached to some rope at the opposite end and looped through an elevated anchor point. Once the handler or Dom ties off and applies pressure to the rope, this causes the bottom to assume an unnatural position that can be pleasurable or stressful, depending on their anatomy or preference. The desired end result, of course, is up to both parties.
Anal hook’s or ass hooks are considered a more intermediate or advanced toy as some knowledge of anatomy is required to use them both safely or effectively. Knowing how to position a sub or bottom so that the hook does not slip out of their ass and is placed comfortably enough to last through an entire session may take some practice. Various sizes of anal hooks and the accompanying balls can be found in many online retail shops. Finding the right size for you is much like finding the correct butt plug to start with, any truly unpleasant pain or discomfort should be avoided at all costs.
