How to use an anal hook
1. Indulge in some foreplay beforehand
To minimise any discomfort or pain, you'll need to get your anal area sufficiently aroused before inserting your hook. Your partner can stimulate your anus as you masturbate, or you can use an anal toy to prepare the area. The idea is for you to relax, so that you can enjoy what’s to come.
2. Use lube
A good lubricant is an essential ingredient for your anal session. Lube will help you insert the hook more easily and reduce pain. Apply a silicone- or oil-based lubricant to the entire surface of the hook, especially the insertable part.
If you intend to have anal sex with your partner afterwards, only use a silicone-based lubricant, as oil can damage the latex and render the condom completely ineffective.

4. Play around with your anal hook
Here are a few suggestions from the LOVE Team for ways of getting the most out of your hook:
- Attach toys to the hook: You can attach leashes, handcuffs or even weights to the hole at the outer end of the hook and add even more intensity to your Dom/Sub session.
- Use ropes: Shibari, for example, limits the movements of the person being dominated and increases the erotic potential of your BDSM session.
An anal hook should only be used with a completely trustworthy partner: you must be able to stop the game at any time. Communication and respect are two fundamental principles that you must be able to rely on during your session. For a totally fun experience for everyone, have a serious discussion with your partner beforehand and set limits that you both agree to.
