Glass Anal Sex Toys - Why It's So Good

But, now that we’re adults, it sounds more like extremely accurate directions to achieving pleasure through anal masturbation. We all know what anal masturbation is, and maybe we’ve even tried with a partner or as foreplay. However, taking a deep dive into solo butt stuff is a little more involved. And adding the sensations of glass toys can seem even more daunting.

We’ve put together the most comprehensive tips and education on how to get started with glass anal sex toys. Before we venture right into slamming these spectacular sculptures in your sphincter, you should know the basics of butt stuff and how to prepare for anal pleasure.

Let’s get into it~

Slide Into Buttstuff - Prep For Play with Glass Anal Sex Toys

So you’re ready to slip n’ slide into the deep dive of glass anal sex toys? Kinda. You know you want to but you just aren’t sure where to start. Like anything new, you just have to learn the process: the hows, the whys, the whens, and the definitely nots. Preparing to use glass anal sex toys can be intimidating for anyone, which is why we are going to be your booty bestie and walk you through all you need to know.

Can’t Get You Outta My Head

The first thing you have to do is get out of your head. There’s a lot of messaging in the world that will tell you things that simply aren’t true about anal sex. It’s clean, fun, pleasurable, intimate, and a little bit kinky for some. It’s literally all the things you want good sex to be. What anal sex isn’t, is shameful, nasty, degrading, unhygienic, or limited to same-sex partners. Anyone with a butt can get down, and it’s totally fine.

Everybody Has a Butt

Anal masturbation is the act of pleasuring oneself via the anus. Duh, right? But so many people don’t know this is an option, or worse, they know about it and won’t try “because it’s the butt”. The thing is, everybody has a butt, and there are pleasures to be enjoyed by all. Of course, there are different ways to go about this rear-end revelry depending on how your body is made. With a little digging, you can find your way to booty bliss.

Start Off Clean

First things first, start with a clean anus. Empty your bowels, and then take a shower or bath to relax your muscles and clean your clincher. You might also want to use a douche for full flushing. Next, you’re going to want to take care of your nails. Trim them short, cutting any excess cuticle tissue. Buff down any edges. The tissue around and in your anus is quite thin and sensitive. You want to make sure your hands and nails won’t aggravate or tear your skin due to rough texture.

Ring the Doorbell

Using an absolutely absurd amount of lube (and by absurd, we mean whatever you were thinking, triple it), begin your anal masturbation by using a finger to go around the outside edges of your anus, slowly. Doing this allows you to relax while paying attention to small changes in pressure and other sensations. You can tap at the entrance (think of ringing a doorbell) and slowly work your way up to insertion. Go at your own pace. This isn’t just in reference to speed. Your own pace includes how deep you want to go and how many fingers you want to try.

For Those with a Prostate

Remember those different bodies we discussed earlier? Let’s talk about it. The way bodies with a prostate experience anal masturbation are much different from those without. The main reason is the prostate itself. This walnut-sized gland is referred to as the P-Spot and is capable of delivering mind-blowing orgasms that differ drastically from a penile orgasm. A P-Spot orgasm tends to last longer, be more intense, incorporate the whole body, and doesn’t necessarily produce an ejaculation. Find this spot by going in about 1-2 inches and applying pressure downward.

For Those with a Uterus

Bodies with a uterus have quite a different experience with anal masturbation because there’s no prostate gland to stroke. That said, more elusive than the G-Spot is the A-Spot. Word has it that the A-Spot is easier to access from the back. That may or may not be accurate, but it’s fun to investigate. Apply strong pressure to the front wall of your rectum and go in a few inches to hit the spot. One thing to keep in mind is that once you go back, you can’t go front. The natural bacteria in the anus is a sworn enemy of the vagina’s bacteria and pH balance and can cause all kinds of problems. If you want to go back and forth, remember to wash your hands or use/remove barrier protection between each transition.

Be Selective

We get it. It feels unexpectedly good, but that doesn’t mean it’s okay to shove anything that fits into your bunghole. In general, don’t use anything that isn’t a tongue, a finger, or a sex toy specifically made for anal masturbation. Seriously, you can wind up in the ER. We have all heard the stories, and none of us wants to be the one telling them. No fruit - it can have too rough a texture, break off with no way of getting it out, or have worms. No candles, no lightbulbs, no mobile phones. Don’t do it.

What You SHOULD Shove In Your Butt

Instead, try glass anal sex toys that are specifically made for solo anal masturbation like the Gläs Anal Training Set. This toy is tapered for smooth entry and has a flared-based for even easier removal. It’s made of borosilicate so it’s effortless to clean between sessions.

Another crowd favorite is the G-Spot Pleasure Glass Dildo and Butt Plug Set. Also made of borosilicate, this toy set has a curved bulbous tip specifically designed to stimulate the A-Spot or P-Spot, making it super fun for everyone. It has a beaded tip that can act as beads or a handle. The other glass dildo has a curved bulbous tip, as well, for giving a full sensation to your anal masturbation play.

The great thing about anal masturbation is that it’s uncharted territory for a lot of people and there are so many things to try. From cleaning up with a Douche Set of 3 Interchangeable Nozzles that allow for different kinds of stimulation, to cranking things up a notch with a Candy Land Juicer, you’ll always have a way to keep things fresh and interesting as you go down the rabbit hole of solo anal play.

Let's explore a bit more about why glass sex toys can be so unique… for a variety of reasons.

Glass Anal Sex Toys - Why It's So Good

Not all sex toys are created equal. That’s not to say any type of sex toy is necessarily better than another, but each material of anal sex toy creates a different sensation and experience. From silicone, to stainless, to glass, the toy material you choose to tango with will determine flexibility and rigidity, resistance, the type of lubricant you can use, and the type of play you can engage in without damaging your toy or your bussy.

With glass anal sex toys, you get the whole kit-n-kaboodle! Glass is one of the most versatile, hygienic, and safe materials to work with (and they’re eco-friendly too!). What are some things to consider when selecting your glass anal sex toy, and why does it feel so amazing? Read on to find out.

Are Glass Dildos Safe?

When you bring up the prospect of shoving glass into your bootyhole, there is one major factor that causes people to clench up… fear. Many people shy away from the prospect of glass because they aren’t aware just how safe it is.

Glass anal sex toys are not made with just any ol’ glass. These toys must be specially crafted out of borosilicate glass which contains a high percentage of silica and boron oxide dopant. For those of us without chemical engineering degrees, it means the glass is really really hard. This glass is designed to be drilled into, milled, grounded, and dropped without breaking or shattering, meaning that it can absolutely withstand the pressure of the human sphincter.

More than just its physical compounds, glass anal sex toys are made with a process known as “annealing”. This process involves exposing glass to incredibly high temperatures to strengthen it and increase the amount of pressure and stress it can withstand.

Is Glass Beginner Friendly?

While there is no one-size-fits-all-beginners ratio, glass anal sex toys come in such a wide range of sizes, styles, and textures, you're bound to find ones in a beginner-friendly range. In terms of material, glass is typically the most beginner friendly of anal sex toys as they are incredibly smooth, non-porous, and easy to insert and remove. The material is also compatible with all lubricants, meaning that whether you have water-based, silicone, or oil on hand, you won't need to search out a specific lube for these toys.

Hygienic and Easy to Clean

As we mentioned above, glass anal sex toys are non-porous, meaning that they won’t hold dirt or lube after use and can be cleaned with any manner of soap without damaging the toy. Glass can even be fully submerged in water, meaning that you could technically clean it in your dishwasher (although we might advise against telling people you wash your butt plug with the dishes). While you can technically use any type of soap, we strongly suggest using an antibacterial toy cleaner which will cut the residue left behind by lube more easily.

Shape and Variety

When it comes to a glass toy, the texture of the butt plug is what takes you to stimulation nation. As glass toys are easy to manipulate during the production process, finding toys that are smooth, bumpy, ridged, tentacle-like, or swirly ensures that you always have a variety of pleasure to spice up your bedroom play.


The most common and typically associated texture with glass anal sex toys is smooth. These toys are for beginners who are still exploring how to find their prostate or A-spot and might find other textures too intense for their experience level. These toys might be a bit smooth for some play, however, as they can easily slide out of you if you like to plug around town, or insert during partnered play.

Spirals and Swirls

Swirl into ecstasy with a spiraled texture. A spiral textured dildo can easily enhance the friction that the toy’s surface creates as you feel the sensations of the spiral and smoothness. Some glass toys are part spiral and part smooth, creating a journey of gentle tingles on the G-Spot / P-Spot followed by constant stimulation.

With enough lubricant, a spiral-textured dildo will still easily glide in and out of your body, however, the raised spiral will increase the sensation as it applied more toe-curling pressure as it penetrates.


Get a little bump in your rump with a raised nub texture. These bubbly little butt fillers make glass anal sex toys even more arousing with rounded bulges that massage your sphincter deeply for a tantric orgasmic journey. A toy with full nub coverage can also increase your sensation of being filled with 360 degrees of stimulation. This allows for simultaneous stimulation of your sphincter walls, anus, and prostate, giving you waves of full-body, euphoric pleasure.

While a nubby textured dildo will provide a fuller feel with its nubs that will provide more pressure and stimulation with their all-over texture, some textured dildos feature strategically placed bumps that are designed to target exactly where you enjoy stimulation. The Gläs’ 6” Lick-It Glass Dildo features a multi-textured surface with bumps and raised edges along one side of the dildo, nubs on the other, and smoothness. Plus, it provides an added fantasy of a tentacle shape for those looking for a little fantasy.
