The name is because the toy has bulbs on a cord, resembling beads on a string. Hey, the more you know! Anal beads are also a totally separate animal than butt plugs, although sometimes people confuse the two. An easy way to remember this is to just keep in mind that anal beads tend to be longer, while plugs are, like their name, shorter and y'know, plug-like. With butt plugs, the pleasure is from the feeling of fullness or heft and weight of the toy, while much of the sensation associated with anal beads is actually in the removal. Sometimes each bead gradually increases in size going up the string, and sometimes the beads are all the same size. Unlike the vagina, things can get lost in your butt.
You might have dabbled in sex toys before—a cock ring here, a We-Vibe there. Maybe you even have a riding crop. If so, it may be time to think about adding anal beads to your bedroom repertoire.

The different sized beads allows a soft approach to anal penetration.
