15 Best Anal Vibrators of 2024, According to Experts

You love your bullet vibe, of course. And maybe you've played with butt plugs or other anal toys before. But let me tell you about the anal vibrator, which combines the best of both worlds. Like any other type of sex toy, anal vibrators come in all different shapes and sizes, from petite beginner-friendly options to seriously intense ones. If this is your first foray into anal toys, first of all, welcome! And second of all, there are some important things to keep in mind when shopping for anal vibrators or any other toy for your butt. Don't worry, though—we tapped some of the best ~sexperts~ in the biz to help guide you.

FTR, you don't need to have a prostate in order to enjoy an anal vibe (though, ofc, there are plenty of prostate massagers made for achieving P-spot orgasms). As Dr. Donna Oriowo, LICSW, M.ED, previously told Cosmo, "With the pudendal nerve, direct stimulation to the anus can also stimulate the vagina. Plus, we know that with all those nerve endings in the anus, only 20 percent of them are in active use to keep things working. The other 80 percent is all about sensation." And to help ya explore that 80 percent (and maybe even discover that elusive A-spot), we've rounded up the best vibin' toys for the job.

Ahead, all the best anal vibrators your $$$ can buy, as well as everything you should know before selecting your new vibe.

Looking for deep, rumbly anal vibes? Then get this hiiighly-rated anal toy from We-Vibe, which is rechargeable, waterproof, perfectly girthy, and—like many We-Vibe toys—able to pair with both the included remote and the We-Connect app. It's got 10 vibe modes for you to try—plus, it's the ideal shape for use during vaginal penetration.

THE REVIEW: "From the packaging to the contents, this toy screams quality, and this is reflected in its performance also," writes one tester. "Most vibrating butt plugs I've had have been good, some have been great, but exceptional. Easy to use, easy to charge, powerful, and just so much fun. I could keep singing this products praises, but honestly, just buy it! Your bum will thank you."

With its sleek shape and modest size, this silicone plug from Unbound would be a great beginner-to-intermediate anal toy even if it didn’t vibrate...but it does! Fully waterproof and USB rechargeable, this cutie has 5 speeds and 5 patterns for you to explore, as well as a unique circular handle for easy removal.

THE REVIEW: "This plug is everything I wanted and it still blew me away!" notes one tester. "It's smooth and easy to insert, waterproof, and the vibration settings have me peaking in seconds! I've used it every night since I got it. Highly recommend!"

Another great vibin' plug option: this turquoise cutie from Cake. With sliiiightly more insertable length than the Shimmy, the Buzzy Butt is still a great pick for beginners, offering a selection of 10 unique vibration modes for you to explore and a wide, flared base. Oh and btw, that price is pretty unbeatable.

THE REVIEW: According to one review, "I didn’t think I’d ever have as much fun with a toy until I received Buzzy Butt. The BB has 10 vibration patterns and was really easy to use. The sensations I felt while using it were mind-numbing and incredible. If you’re on the fence about this vibrating butt toy, here’s your gentle push to just go for it."

Another great pick for beginners: this streamlined, remote-controlled device from Doc Johnson. The slim shape makes for v easy insertion, and with the one-button remote, you (or your partner) can navigate the 10 unique vibration modes. Wanna kick things up a notch? You can graduate to the Adventurous or Experienced version of this plug.

THE REVIEW: "Anyone who is new to or intimidated by anal play, this is absolutely for you!!" one tester notes. "It’s so smooth, easy to clean, and though it looks intimidating, it slides right in there and feels amazing. The fact my boyfriend can control the remote is a big plus, too."

A fun find for backdoor enthusiasts who want to try some hands-free fun: this periwinkle anal plug from Bellesa. Featuring 10 unique vibration modes, this powerful bb has a tapered end for easy insertion, along with a flared, grippable base to ensure safe and secure play. Best of all, it comes with a remote control that can be used up to 10 meters away.

THE REVIEW: "This was the very first time I tried an anal vibrator. I’m sooo happy that I tried it," one tester writes. "It wasn’t intimidating and the size was exactly what I needed. Not to mention, the remote control added a super fun element with my partner! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to explore anal play."

Okay, but how cute is this lil massager? Made with silky-smooth silicone, this toy is curved at the end for precise stim, and it features five powerful speeds and five vibe modes, as well as whisper-quiet operation. And like all Cute Little Fuckers toys, Shimmer is suuuuper versatile, since it can be used for vaginal play as well.

THE REVIEW: As one reviewer writes, "I love this toy. It’s wide enough to make me feel full, yet narrow enough that—as an anal beginner—I need very little warming up to get going with it. The curve at the end hits some really nice places, and the ears make it really easy to hold on to while going, and make it possible to spin the toy inside of me, too, which I found I really liked. Plus. it’s so dang cute!"

For a long-distance anal vibe option, check out the Hush 2 from LOVENSE. It's available in four different size options—ranging from 1 inch to 2.25 inches in thickness—so you can select the best fit depending on your experience level and girth preference. And in addition to boasting 10 rumbly vibe settings, you can control this bad boy from any distance thanks to the LOVENSE app.

THE REVIEW: "Big news for lovers of butt stuff! This is the best plug I have ever used!" writes one customer. "Charged it for a couple hours out of the box, cleaned it (and myself) up, lubed up, then took it for its maiden voyage, and woo boy! The app sync'd up with the plug easily, and I chose the music option, and got my world rocked!"

For a unique sensation, give this spinning butt plug from Playboy Pleasure a whirl (lol). It comes with a remote that can be used up to 25 feet away, and it features seven vibrating speeds and rhythms, as well as seven twirling speeds. Oh, and the ripped texture of the plug only enhances sensation while it twirls and vibrates.

THE REVIEW: "Best plug ever invented!!" one reviewer raves. "I love vibrating plugs, but even if this didn't vibrate, it would be nothing short of amazing! The swivel is a game-changer!!! Good on you, Playboy!!"

She's a stunner, no?? If you want an anal vibe you don't have to worry about recharging, this is your bb. Featuring five speeds and five unique rhythms, this beginner- to intermediate-level plug boasts a submersible design, stay-put base for long-term wear, and ah-mazingly soft platinum-cured silicone—all for around $30. A steal!

THE REVIEW: "This plug excels in delivering pleasurable sensations," reads one review. "Its gradual increase in size, coupled with the smooth silicone surface, creates a pleasurable stretching and filling experience. The gradual progression allows the user to explore their limits at a comfortable pace."

Mini but mighty, this plusOne plug is the perfect entry-level option for anyone who *thinks* they might be into anal play...but isn't quite ready to splurge on a pricey device. This lil guy will only set ya back $30, and it still has all the features you'd expect from a premium toy, as it's rechargeable, waterproof, and equipped with 10 unique vibration settings.

THE REVIEW: "I was a bit hesitant at first, but the PlusOne vibrating plug has truly been a game-changer," notes one reviewer. "The size is perfect for beginners like me, and the smooth silicone makes it comfortable to use. The different vibration modes add an exciting element, enhancing the overall experience. It's easy to clean and rechargeable, which is a huge plus. It's great for adding a little spice during intimate times."

At maude, you can always expect to find chic, minimalist, moderately-priced toys that pack a major punch, and this new-and-improved version of the original cone is no exception. With nearly five inches of insertable length, this bb's an ideal upgrade for anyone ready to take things to the next level, and it comes with three speeds for you to cycle through.

THE REVIEW: "Substantial enough to impress and well-designed for pleasure," one reviewer notes. "The vibrations are pleasing; the medium cone is quite nice when switched off as well. We are having a great time with our newest toy. Ordering was easy, [and] shipping fast and discreet. Highly recommended."

Similar in appearance to anal beads, the graduated design on vibe make this a super-versatile toy for a variety of sensations. With three flexible beads of increasing size, two power motors, six vibration levels, and 15 vibe patterns, there are tons of ways to explore with this one—and ofc, it comes with a handy-dandy remote for hands-free thrills.

THE REVIEW: "If the thought of putting anything up your butt intimidates you, these anal beads are a great place to start," notes one review. "The first to go in are very small, and you don't have to put them all in at once. The vibrations also help ensure your experience is pleasurable, not painful."

If you're just dipping your toe into the world of anal play, then you'll wanna have some options on hand. Enter: this anal training set from Tracy's Dog, which includes three plugs ranging from approachable to adventurous, as well as a remote for hands-free control. Each plug comes packed with nine different vibe mode, as well as a suction-cup bottom for even more possibilities.

THE REVIEW: "I am starting to explode backdoor play, and these are great for someone new to it like me," one review reads. "They are so soft and comfortable, and the remote makes them really easy to control. They have lots of different settings to keep things interesting! I also love the suction cups on the bottom."

This aesthetic vibe from Bloomi (which is a great choice for both anal *and* vaginal play) features vibrations on one side and nothing but soft, non-vibrating silicone on the other, so you can choose an end depending on your mood. With three speeds and three vibe settings, it's simple, affordable, and so cute that you'll be tempted to leave it on your dresser.

THE REVIEW: "OMG! This toy was just AMAZING!!!" raves one tester. "I’ve always been nervous about anal penetration, and this toy was the best way for me to explore that: smooth texture, easy settings. I cannot recommended this enough!"

If you're looking to upgrade your anal vibe experience for more intense stimulation, this toy is for you. This b-Vibe device features rotating beads around the plug's shaft, so it feels *just* like one you're receiving a rim job. Ah, technology. The toy also boasts seven rotating patterns and six vibe modes that you can explore with the handheld remote, and for more experienced users, you can also check out the Rimming Plug 2 or Rimming Plug XL.

THE REVIEW: "This is an outstanding toy," one buyer raves. "I love the super silky material. The ability to control the rotating beads separately from the vibration is really nice. There's a lot of substance and complexity here that makes it possible to have a new experience every time."

The most important factor for beginners to take into account when shopping for an anal vibrator is size. "If you’re new to anal play, start with smaller, sleeker toys," certified sex therapist Aliyah Moore advises. "Go for anal toys no wider than 1.25 inches in diameter at the thickest point. Beginner size-queens (or kings) should build up in 0.25-inch increments so that you don’t hurt yourself."

Orchid Toys sexologist Alex Miller recommends paying close attention to the materials used. "Pick something that's body-safe and phthalate-free," she tells us. "If you know you have a silicone allergy or something like that, always check what the toy is made of." Similarly, if you're using anal lube with your vibrator (which you should be!!), then make sure the lube you use is compatible with the toy. Water-based lubes are usually a safe bet, but do your research and consider spot-testing before plunging in, so to speak.

Lastly, you should feel free to experiment with different shapes and long as your toy is body-safe and has a flared base. "Finding the right shape for your anus is important and just as equally important, is having a flared base that feels comfortable is ideal," sexologist Marla Renee Stewart adds.

Pleasure is diverse, and what rocks someone's world may not be powerful enough to thrill another person. That's why we rounded up a whole range of highly-rated anal vibrators, from gentle, flexible toys for beginners, to seriously high-tech vibes that'll leave your legs quaking.
