People are always looking for the next thrill and ways they could enjoy themselves. We all know how important creativity is, and this applies to the bedroom as well. There aren’t many people out there who are purely vanilla (even if they say they are!). And for those who are on the kinkier side of the spectrum, things can get rather dull. Fortunately, there are so many toys you can try that will undoubtedly spice up your sex life. If you are interested in the whole world of BDSM, we will show you a toy that will get you hooked!

What Is an Anal Hook?

Anal hooks have been a part of the BDSM play for a while now. You may have come across anal hooks and cock cages used in porn, and you might be wondering what are these accessories for. The core idea behind these sex toys is domination. The person wearing one will have little to no space for movement. And that can be rather uncomfortable. An ass hook is a curved piece of steel with a hole on one end and a ball on the other.

The dominant person will insert the steel ball part of the hook into their sub’s anus and leave it there. These anal toys are often a part of the predicament bondage, where a person is forced to stay in a specific position. Usually, the default position can bring little to no discomfort. However, the person wearing the hook will soon have to move into a more uncomfortable and painful position due to muscle fatigue. 

It is also possible to use the holed part of the hook to tie a bondage rope. That allows you to force the person to remain in the same position by tying the rope to an object, a part of their body, etc. 

Often, the dominant person will sexually pleasure the sub. That includes tickling or torturing them in any way that would force them to switch positions. Unlike a dildo that’ll make you horny, anal hooks can inflict a bit of pain, and that’s part of what people who are into BDSM look for.

How to Use Anal Hooks

While the basics of using anal hooks are similar to butt plugs and anal beads, there are several things that you need to consider. Firstly, the material for these anal toys is usually surgical grade stainless steel. That means that hooks are a lot less forgiving than dildos and other silicone toys. That is, of course, because hat they are rigid. As a result, you will need to be extra careful, especially with the ball on the insertion. 

The best course of action will be to use a lot of lubricants. The tissue in and around the anus is rather sensitive, and it can easily tear. Using a lube can greatly improve the overall experience with steel anal hooks. 

Furthermore, the dominant person should be aware of the dangers and know how to use these toys, and they should never get carried away. Even though there is a hole on the hook, that doesn’t mean that you should consider using it for suspension bondage. Rope play is only there to ensure that the hook won’t move. There shouldn’t be any extra pressure. 

After carefully inserting the toy, the rest is up to your imagination. You can move the hook slightly to either stimulate the prostate or order your sub around the room. The options are nearly infinite. 

Types and Designs of Anal Hooks

Whether the toy is designed for anal penetration or prostate massage, they all come in various shapes and sizes, and hooks are no different. While the basic idea is the same, you will still have a choice to make. Some hooks offer you a chance to remove the ball and replace it with one of the different sizes. If the toy you bought is too big (or too small), you can easily fix this. 

Moreover, hooks can be used by beginners as well since you can completely remove the ball and start slow. Of course, there are BDSM hooks with more than one ball for those who really enjoy anal. 

Hooks are a great option for people looking for even more fun as there are two-in-one toys available as well. For example, you can find a model in combination with a cock ring or ball restraints. The best thing about hooks is they come in both male and female versions. 

For those feeling adventurous, some models feature a Siamese collar with a rod that transforms into a hook. There is no doubt that you will find almost any type and any combination with other sex toys. So, whether you are looking for a hook with a delay ring, two or three balls, butt plug, cock ring, or nearly anything else, there is a product already waiting for you.

Things You Need to Know Before Using Anal Hooks

There are two main things that you should remember when using anal hooks. The first one is safety, and the second one is hygiene. The safety means that you should never try things like suspension with them and that you should avoid sudden movements or jerks. 

You should also clean your toys both before and after the play, to make sure that you have nothing but pleasure from using them. If you have a hook with a removable ball, be sure to clean them separately to get to those “hard to reach” parts of the toy. There is no need to worry about complications when you can spend that time enjoying yourself and your partner. 


Anal hooks can be fun. They are similar to butt plugs, but they will force a person to remain in the same position for a while. That’s why they are often part of the predicament bondage. The hook itself is a curved piece of steel with a hole on one side and a ball (or multiple balls) on the other. The balls will stay in the rectal canal, while the hole can be used for finger, rope, or anything else that will allow the holder to control the action. Anal hooks are fun, easy to use, and can really get you hooked in no time.
