Ah, anal. It’s one of those things that doesn’t get enough recognition and respect because people think it’s depraved, dirty, and taboo. Well, I’m here to tell you that there is absolutely nothing wrong with anal sex and it can be pretty damn pleasurable – if you prepare your anus correctly with an anal sex training kit, that is.
Anal training kits are designed to help you gradually loosen your anus in preparation for anal penetration. These kits often come with at least three butt plugs that increase in size, and when you’re using them, it’s super important that you have a good amount of a water-based lubricant because, unlike the vagina, the anus does not produce lubricant.
Today, we’re going to take a look at five of my top anal training kits that’ll get your back door ready for anal sex. Keep in mind, these training kits are suitable for men and women! It doesn’t matter what your gender is or how you identify your sexuality – everyone has a bum which is full of nerve endings in the that feel good when it’s stimulated.
Choosing the Best Anal Training Kit
Just like any other sex toy, anal training kits come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and materials. When choosing the best anal training kit, I want to make sure the kit had more positive reviews than negative ones. I also considered the price, the number of plugs that are included in the kit, and the material the plugs were made from.
With that out of the way, let’s take a look at what I think are the best anal training kits.
Best Anal Training Kit for Experts
Lovehoney Bumper Booty Bundle Anal Training Kit
The Lovehoney Bumper Booty Bundle is a cool anal training kit for people who like a little variety in their playtime. Not only does this anal training kit include two butt plugs, but it also features other fun toys that’ll give you a completely different experience each time.
Price: $41.99 on Lovehoney
Design: Unlike other anal training kits on this list, this particular set is ideal for those who are already familiar with anal play and who want to spice things up even more. While some of the toys in the set are suitable for beginners – I can’t say the same about all of them. Some are best served only for experienced users. The kit includes 5 toys and an anal douche. All toys are made from a high-quality, body safe silicone material that is easy to clean and comfortable to use. There is a battery operated bullet that can be used in the anal beads, the prostate massager, and small butt plugs.
Performance: The star of the show with this anal training kit is the bullet that you can use with three of the four anal toys. You can cycle through a variety of vibration speeds and patterns until you find a setting that sets you over the edge. The anal douche that comes with this kit is sleek, compact, and easy to use – thanks to the squeezable bulb. In terms of perfomance, this is the best anal training kit in my collection – no doubt about it.
Verdict: If I could give this kit more than 5 stars, I would. I love that this kit includes a variety of toys with different sizes and designs – this really is a kit that has it all. I also liked that the silicone wasn’t too flexible, and how slippery the toys get when they’re lubed up. The only thing that would make it even better is if it included lube and the single AAA battery for the bullet – but I’ve got enough of both so this isn’t a big deal. All in all, this is the very best anal training kit I have tested. Good stuff!
- Multiple toys included
- Powerful bullet
- Flared base on toys for safety
- Made from body-safe silicone
- Submersible in water
Best Anal Training Kit for Beginners
Doc Johnson Wendy Williams Triple Anal Training Kit
The Doc Johnson/Wendy Williams Triple Anal Training Butt Plug Kit is your basic anal trainer kit, as it comes with three butt plugs in various sizes, with each one a unique shape that’ll provide a distinct sensation. For beginners, it’s likely the best pick.
Price: $24.99 on Lovehoney
Design: All three of these anal trainers are made from a translucent skin-safe rubber. Each plug features a tapered tip that allows for easy penetration and a flat suction-cup base to prevent the plug from going in too far. The purple color of this kit is very cute – they look little marshmellows! I like unintimidating anal training kits, and these are most definitely as unintimidating by design as humanly possible.
Performance: When you’re starting out with this kit, you’ll want to use the smooth, 4-inch plug. When you’re ready, you can progress to the textured middle plug and then finish with the large bulbous plug. Since the plugs are made from rubber, they can be submerged in water. Unfortunately, this also means that the rubber material is a little flexible, therefore making penetration somewhat challenging. With some lube, though, it’s usually not a problem – once you get the hang of it.
Verdict: I’m not a novice with anal training, so for me, the smallest plug was a bit too small. However, I liked the texture of the middle plug (it felt different when being inserted) and I loved the “full” feeling I got with the largest one. It is a great anal training kit for complete beginners, but anal experts might be better off with the #1 pick on this list.
- 3 Plugs with a different shape for each
- Tapered head
- Suction cup base
- Flexible rubber
- The smallest plug is too small for some
Crystal Jellies Anal Trainer Kit
The Crystal Jellies Anal Trainer Kit only features two plugs, but that doesn’t mean there is anything lacking. Remember – it’s quality, not quantity that counts!
Price: $24.95 on Adam & Eve
Design: The first time you’ll notice when looking at these plugs is that they don’t feature a gradual taper after the rounded head. Instead, the plugs feature ribs that gradually increase in size as you push the plug further inside. Each plug features a flared base for safe use.
Performance: These plugs are made from a Sil-A-Gel™ jelly material that becomes slick when lubed up. The ribbing not only holds onto your favorite lube longer, but they also give you a different feel in comparison to smooth plugs.
Verdict: I like the ribbing on these plugs, especially the larger plug because it gives me that full feeling that I enjoy. I do think the jelly material is too flexible for easy insertion – I had some difficulty starting off because the plug would wiggle when I tried to insert it. However, once I learned how the flexibility of the plugs is designed, it was noticeably easier to use them as anal training tools. All in all, they are pretty damn solid anal training plugs – but I can’t call them the best.
- Easy to wash
- Unique shape
- Too flexible
Adam & Eve Glass Anal Training Trio
The Adam & Eve Glass Anal Training Trio is your basic glass anal training kit. The kit comes with three butt plugs that are as smooth as they are clear. Lube up and slide right in with glass!
Price: $39.99 on Adam & Eve
Design: Nothing says that you’re serious about anal play like going for a glass butt plug! Each of the plugs features a rounded head that gradually gets wider as you near the thin neck and wide base. While this kit is not as easy to train for anal with, it’s definitely got the upper hand when it comes to beautiful design!
Performance: There’s nothing that can quite compare to the feel of a glass sex toy inside of you, be it vaginally or anally. These toys can help you train your anal muscles for strength, endurance, and even control. When you apply ample lubrication, the rigid glass plugs will slide in with minimal effort. For a unique feel, you can change the temperature of the plugs by soaking them in warm or cool water for a few minutes prior to insertion.
Verdict: While there isn’t anything truly unique and amazing about them, I love the way they feel inside. The glass plugs have just enough weight to help you feel full without being uncomfortable. Also, when lubed up, the plugs slide in easier than their plastic counterparts. And, of course – most of all I love their design – they are just gorgeous.
- Easy to clean
- Weight adds to the “full” feeling
- Can be uncomfortable to insert
- Very rigid
- Becomes cold very easily
Adam & Eve Backdoor Training Kit
If you intend on having anal sex with your guy, the Adam & Eve Backdoor Training Kit is that kit that features a realistic head that simulates the feel of your man. It’s a bit awkward to use, but it’s still worth a feature in this list!
Price: $29.95 on Adam & Eve
Design: These jelly butt plugs are crystal clear and feature a realistic head. Unlike other training kits, these butt plugs do not start off thin and increase in girth as you slide it inside. Once you get past the head, it’s all one size until you reach the slightly thinner neck and flat, suction cup base.
Performance: Since these plugs are made from jelly, they’re quite smooth and they get very slippery when using a water-based lubricant. Since these plugs do not have a gradual taper to them, you’ll want to pay close attention to how it feels going in. If you find the smallest plug is still too wide for your anus, try a lubed up finger or two first. Remember – anal training is about going slow and being gentle!
Verdict: While I’m not a beginner by any means, I still like a plug that gradually gets wider as I slide it in, and these aren’t it. With that said, when they are in, they feel quite satisfying, even though their flexibility made it a little challenging getting the bigger ones to work for my body.
- Realistic shape
- Slick when lubed up
- Large flared base
- Easy to wash
- The plug doesn’t have a tapered design
- Too flexible
Final Thoughts on Anal Training Kits
If you’re ever looking for a way to make sexy time a little more, risqué, anal play is a good way to do it. Although anal is still somewhat considered taboo in some circles, it can be a very intimate act shared between two partners. Before you can go down your partner’s rabbit hole, you need to make sure that:
- You have verbal consent, and
- Their anus has been prepped, which you can do with an anal training kit.
All of these kits are really good for beginners, but if you feel particularly adventurous or you think you’ll want to experiment with anal plugs that have different textures or ones that vibrate, the Bumper Booty Bundle gets my vote.
