You're Thinking Anal? Look Here First

If you have been thinking of giving anal sex a try, or would like to find ways to make it more enjoyable, then check out this Intro to Anal kit by Zero Tolerance. It includes a how-to DVD guide, a set of anal beads, a small vibrator, an anal stopper, lube, and toy cleaner. Overall, great for beginners, but not so much for those with more experience.

The Intro to Anal kit by Zero Tolerance is designed for those new to anal sex and play. It consists of five different pieces to aid you on your journey to fantastic, pain-free anal.

The DVD

This kit includes Dr. Ava's Guide to Anal Sex for Women, a DVD designed to give you hints and pointers to make anal play more enjoyable. There is a brief introduction by Dr. Ava, but the majority of the DVD focuses on two different couples, each who enjoy anal sex. There are interviews, where they discuss things such as their favorite anal positions and toys, as well advice for the newcomer.

Both couples demonstrate their favorite anal techniques. Yes, I said demonstrate. Although it is not designed as porn, it does somewhat feel like two-in-the-morning Skin-a-Max, but with acutal penetration. The noises are overly dramatic, and I'm sure this is not what these couples sex is like when the camera's not on them.

All that being said, there is plenty of good information, especially for those new to anal play.

The Anal Beads

The anal beads included in this kit are your typical set of beads, and have ten inches of insertable length. They consist of ten beads, of five different sizes. The smallest beads are a 1/4" in diameter and the beads progress in size until you reach the last beads, which measure 1" in diameter. There is an O-ring at the end of the beads, which keeps the beads in place, gives you a way to manipulate them, and is used for removal.

This set of anal beads is made of plastic, rates an 8 on the Eden safety scale, and is latex and phthalate free. The toy is flexible, and can easily bend one way or another. The beads themselves are firm, and do not have much give, which actually makes them easier to insert.

The Vibrating Anal Massager

The Anal Massager is your typical small scale vibrator, and not safe for anal play on its own. It, too, is made of plastic, and requires one AA battery. The vibrator has only one speed, which isn't very strong. It is lower than the low setting on my Rabbit and my bullet, so keep that into consideration if you are looking for strong vibrations. It has an insertable length of three inches, and can be used vaginally if you would like.

There is nothing special about this vibrator that designates it for anal play, as it is not shaped like a plug, and will easily "push out" of the anus, as it doesn't have a bulge to hold it in place.

Like the beads, the vibrator has a seam along the side, but as long as you are aware of it, it shouldn't cause a problem with cleaning.

The Anal Stopper

The Anal Stopper is a lovely little piece of silicone that can be stretched over the base of the Anal Massager (and any other dildo like item you would like to try anally) to make it anal safe. When attached to the included vibrator, it settles nicely between two small ridges, which hold the silicone in place, making sure it won't slide off during use.

The silicone is smaller than the base on most butt plugs I've tried and is pretty comfortable to wear (although the vibrator itself is small and sometimes difficult to keep in place).

The Lube

A small (very, very small) container of Zero Tolerence Medium Density Lube is included with the kit. It is water-based, and therefore usable with all toys. It's not too sticky, and wipes off easily after use. It does not have any smell, and is not overly runny, making it a great lube to try for anal.

The ingredients include: glycerin, purified water, sodium carboxmethyl cellulose, propyl paraben, and methyl paraben.

The biggest issue I have with this, is that it's too small, especially since this is for a beginner's anal kit. I am a big fan of lube, especially when it comes to anal, so I'd hate for someone to have a bad time, or even worse, a painful experience, due to not using enough lube.

The Cleaner

The kit includes an anti-bacterial toy cleaner in a spray bottle. It is alcohol free, and does not smell or leave a residue. It is your basic toy cleaner, which you spray on after use, let sit for a moment, wipe off with a wet cloth, then rinse.

Ingredients include: purified water, propylene glycol, cocamidopropyl betaine, benzalkonium chloride, zinc gluconate, phenoxycthanol, and citric acid.
Experience
Overall, it's a good kit for a beginner. The video made me laugh; be prepared, it's a little corney at times. But the information presented is good and it's done with as much class as possible when talking about anal sex.

The anal beads are sturdy and well made, and probably one of the best sets I've ever owned. I like that they are one solid piece and made completely of plastic. I've had others that were held together with a string, and I was always fearful to use them after the first time, because I didn't know if the string was truly clean. All that being said, ten inches of insertable beads is too much for me. I did use it, and I did get all ten beads into place, but it was way deeper than I actually like.

The vibrator is okay, for a beginner. Although you can use it vaginally, the vibrations are weak, and it's not even strong enough for me to use on my clitoris. This was my first experience with using any type of virbrating toy anally, and I must say I was not overly impressed by it. It does bother me that they used this vibe in an anal kit, because it's not anal safe on its own, but that can't really be changed.

Not a newcomer to anal sex myself, I didn't learn much from this kit, except a few new positions to try. But if you are a beginner, or looking for a way to make anal sex more pleasurable and less painful, this kit would be perfect for you.
Follow-up commentary
As in intro kit, this did not offer much to me. I haven't used the beads since the first time, as they go much deeper than I like. The vibrator isn't strong enough for clitoral use, as I like lots of vrooms. I do like the silicone stopper, and it's versatile enough to make itself known in my toy box.

    10 inches sounds like way too much to me (though I've never tried that many).
