What is an anal hook?
Nope, we’re not talking about a kinky pirate appendage. An anal hook is a type of sex toy which is part butt plug, part BDSM-focused stretcher.
Essentially, an anal hook is used mostly as part of BDSM-play, with the bottom-end end going into the anus in the same way as a butt plug. At the top of the toy is a hook which can be used with ropes or ties to attach the top to a collar or hood. The person being ‘hooked’ then is attached with the toy from both ends.
The bottom part is often shaped as a butt plug, but you’ll also find more spherical or literal flat hooke endings – there’s so much to choose with these types of toys.
Are these toys safe to use?
Of course! Like with any anal toy, I recommend that you use plenty of lube and always go slowly. This also includes not rushing into the ‘hook’ aspect of the toy, as many beginners new to BDSM can find the attachment aspect quite uncomfortable. Make sure you work your way up to using the toy and get hooked in good time. It’s worth the wait!
Here are ten of my favourites, with hooks ranging from those for absolute beginners to anal veterans ready for their next challenge.

How do you use anal hooks? What do beginners need to know?
Each anal hook has numerous uses, so there is no right or wrong way to use them in a pleasurable manner. But the main rule across the board when it comes to sex toys is to make sure they are well cleaned and stored correctly. But not just that, making sure to look after your body too.
Make sure to be well lubed up with water-based lube, and be careful that you don’t push your body to stretch too far without the proper lubrication and stimulation because you can cause damage if you are not careful.
Prices will depend on what you get for your money and the quality of that sex toy. For example, the Stainless Steel Anal & Vaginal Hook Set costs $32.99, but that is because of what you get for that price. You don’t just get one toy; you get eight, so value for money is key in this case.
The higher the price, the better the quality and all of these hooks are designed with longevity in mind, so as long as you clean and store them correctly, they are toys you can reuse repeatedly.
With a lot of these anal hooks, they have balls or beads attached to the end, so make sure that the balls are detached for cleaning with care and reattached correctly as this could lead to damage to not only the product and but to you or your lover(s).
Cleaning your sex toys is extremely important; making sure that you wash them before and after use is also critical, and the general rule is if it goes inside you, clean it. It’s common sense, really, but just don’t get lazy with it and make sure to put as much effort into cleaning your toys as you would yourself.
Cleaning products you could use include:
- Alcoholic wipes,
- Sanitising tablets,
- Good old, warm freshwater.
Storing your sex toys is just as important as cleaning your sex toys. Many sex toys come in boxes that you can use for storage, but make sure it’s clean and put them not just in a box but consider a bag to put them in, just to keep any dust or debris off the toys themselves. Also, ensure that they are adequately dried; otherwise, the toys can start to deteriorate.
These anal hooks are for anyone looking to start in anal play, or maybe you are an avid BDSM lover and want to try out some new products to add to your collection.
As Mackenzie G. says about the DOMINIX Deluxe Small Anal Hook, “I’ve been wanting a toy like this for years, and thankfully I was not disappointed after all the hype. This is a great toy for beginners and more experienced players – it’s a simple toy that allows you to get creative with just how you want to torture (or be tortured).
I was a bit nervous that the ball can screw on and off, it only takes a moment to ensure the ball is on tight before play, and the likelihood of it coming loose is slim. Overall this has been a great addition to the toy box!”
