How Thick Is An Anal Dildo

a thick anal dildo for kinky play

We often see toys with differing diameters and circumferences, but what does this translate to in terms of your anal play.  How much can you manage and should you try?  It's a slightly vague proposition as of course everyone is made differently and their levels of experience with anal will vary vastly.  However to keep the concept easy to digest, at Anal Play Co we use a simple system of Beginner, Intermediate and Expert rating system for our toys.

Our system is based not just on the width but also takes into account length or even shape.  Saying that, thickness will be the most obvious barrier to entry, both literally and figuratively and therefore is the most apt to talk about.

Beginner 0-1.5 inches

The slimmest of anal toys tend to be just shy of 1 inch in diameter and sometimes a little more.  These toys are akin to slipping a finger or two into the ass, albeit with a variety of different shapes available.  The benefit is that you don't need to train your anal muscles to allow these toys to enter your butt.

This lets you play a little with the sensations of anal and get over that initial discomfort that the majority of people experience when they insert something anally for the first time.

Intermediate 1.5-2.5 inches

As you move onto larger toys in excess of 1 inch in thickness, we get to toys that require a little practice.  They require you to relax your sphincter and train your ass to accept dildos and plugs being inserted into it. We deem this the intermediate phase and we group our toys with a thickness of between 1.5 inches and 2.5 inches as intermediate anal toys.

If you have been participating in anal sex, or playing with small toys or butt plugs then a toy with a width of circa 2 inches could give you an extra stretch that you will find pleasurable without being too daunting.

Experts 2.5+ inches

These toys are only for well trained butts! When you get to this width, it is extremely unlikely that you could insert such a toy without a great amount of practice with smaller and mid sized toys first.

The ability to relax the sphincter is paramount here, as well as perhaps being able to deal with a little discomfort as your body will need repetition and conditioning to accept objects of these sizes.  If your goal is to take larger objects such as a fist, then training with these toys is a greatly enjoyable challenge.

As this is somewhat our passion and speciality, we have a number of toys in excess of of that 2.5 inch diameter.  Torpedo, the anal dildo pictured above is one the our customers love to train with.  It measures in just shy of that at 2.4 inches in diameter making it a good challenge for both and a great way to bridge those medium to large sizes.  

Anal training is about slow progression.  Nothing happens overnight, except from a sore butt from taking on more than you should.  If you have lofty goals but have never actually inserted a large toy then be patient and work with a smaller one first.  Maintain your goal and then when it comes to pass it will be rewarding an enjoyable rather than just painful!
