What is a speculum?
A speculum is commonly a medical device used for analyzing the hollow part of the body. For example, utilizing a speculum as part of a vaginal exam in order to be able to see and diagnose adequately.
So, what business does it have on this site? What’s the purpose of it as a sex toy?
Why are speculums used as an adult toy?
In the same way that a speculum is essentially used for stretching for deeper analysis in a medical sense, the same approach can be used for sexual exploration.
For fans of stretching and gaping, a speculum is used as a spreading device that not only assists in a slow gape of an orifice e.g.the vagina or anus, but also allows the user to retain the gape or ‘spread’ due to how the device is built.
Are speculums safe to use?
Like any item used for medical sex toy play, you can absolutely use a speculum safety. However, you need to do your reading – I’ve provided a breakdown at the end of this guide on exactly how you can use this type of item safely for sex purposes.

How Do You Use Speculums? Here’s what beginners need to know
The first word is CAREFULLY. Yes, these are for intensifying your fun and making your sexual pleasures as kinky as possible, but they are not meant to hurt or harm! So please, make sure to communicate with your lover, make sure they are happy with what you are doing, or you have a safe word ready and waiting just in case. And please remember to use PLENTY of lube!
Make sure all parties are having fun, and clean and store these toys carefully as they can cause injury and damage if not!
Prices will depend on what you get for your money and the quality of that sex toy. For example, the Bondage Boutique Steel Vaginal Speculum is $29.99, but you get medical-grade stainless steel and a toy with multiple adjustments.
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 speculums and stretching toys, they are made from metal and have adjustable screws and detachable balls and pieces on them, so be mindful of cleaning them thoroughly and detaching and reattaching everything properly; so as not to cause any injuries when in use!
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 and a bag to keep any dust or debris off the toys themselves. Also, ensure that they are adequately dried; otherwise, the toys can deteriorate.
These toys are for our BDSM lovers, whether you are a seasoned pro or a beginner looking into new things to try. These stretchers and speculums are perfect for you and to grow your kinky toybox!
Like Andy said about the Penis Plug Double Ended Stainless Steel Ribbed Urethral Dilator 6mm, “I have used it a few times and love it. Use it when almost flaccid and will be hard in no time. Make sure to sterilize before using and use sterile lube. I was slowly using it at first, but after a short time could get the whole rod in. The ribbed side feels great and not something I would ever think I would get hooked on…but I did!”.
