Toy Cleaners: Bacteria allowed to grow on toys can lead to irritation, infection, and in females, thrush, so it's best to use a toy cleaner. While alcohol-based toy cleaners certainly do the job, they can also damage materials, so we recommend non-alcohol-based toy cleaners.
Douching: Few people consider it, but douching is an essential part of preparing for any form of anal play as it clenses the anal passage. A douche is simply a tool for spraying liquid (usually tepid water) into the anal passage. Vaginal douching is also a good idea, but less common.
