If there's one type of sex toy that's really getting a lot of attention lately, it's anal toys. And, while a lot of people love anal stimulation, many others are a bit, well, intimidated. After all, anal sex has long been taboo. Plus, a lot of anal toys look pretty, well, weird. But, hey, they weren't designed for their looks. And, we would argue, they shouldn't be judged by them either! Here are eight weird-looking toys you can put in your butt for pleasure. (For some background reading, check out Here's How to Hit the Prostate Using a Toy and The Top 4 Anal Toys for Beginners.)

Aneros Helix Syn Prostate Massager

Aneros Helix Syn Prostate Massager

If you're familiar with prostate massagers, the Aneros Helix Syn isn't that weird looking. But, to the layperson, this looks like a blunt-ended ninja weapon. Maybe that's apt; it's designed to perform an orgasmic sneak-attack on the prostate, and it's carefully shaped to do just that.

Wand Essentials P-Spot Wand Attachment

Wand Essentials Prostate Massager

The Wand Essentials P-Spot Wand Attachment attachment is one weird-looking little creature. It's designed to fit over a wand massager such as the Magic Wand, and to translate deep, powerful vibrations into the prostate. The external little antenna is designed to tease the perineum, a type of stimulation which, combined with anal play, sends many people right over the edge.

Metal Worx Double Trouble Massager

Metal Worx Double Trouble Prostate Massager

What is this thing? At first glance, it's a little hard to figure out how it works. In fact, the Metal Worx Double Trouble Massager is billed as a unisex toy. The two "finger" portion is inserted into the anus, leaving the third "finger" to stimulate the perineum or clitoris. The ring handle prevents the toy from getting lost (beware - this can happen!) and allows the user to rock and manipulate the toy for prostate or G-spot massage. This toy is also designed to provide girth and weight, which more advanced anal enthusiasts may really enjoy.

Fun Factory Flexi Felix Anal Beads

Fun Factory Flexi Felix Anal Beads

Well, hello there, cutie! Yes, this adorable thing looks like a bath-time toy for the kids, but it's actually a super-popular toy for adults. Flexi Felix is a set of soft, body-safe, silicone anal beads. They are designed to be inserted into the anus, and provide maximum pleasure when withdrawn. And that cute little face? It's designed to prevent the toy from becoming, um, irretrievable. (To read about some of the risks, do's and dont's associated with anal sex, check out Don't Have Anal Sex If ...)

Rocks Off Ass-Berry Raspberry

Rocks Off Ass-Berry Raspberry Anal Plug

That's right, this is a raspberry for your ass ... berry. The Rocks Off Ass-Berry Raspberry is cute, a little quirky and designed to deliver a delightful anal experience. This uniquely shaped anal plug's nubby sleeve provides texture and stimulation, while its powerful, waterproof vibrating bullet delivers intense sensation.

The Tantus Tex Anal PlugTantus Tex Anal Plug

It kinda looks like a big ol' boob monument, but the Tantus Tex is actually a gigantic anal plug. If you aren't experienced at anal play, this baby's unlikely to be pleasurable for you, like, at all. But, for those who can take its 9 3/4" girth, this toy is designed to push the limits of pleasure.

Mystim Tristan Anal and Vaginal Probe

X Weird-Looking Things You Can Put In Your Butt for Pleasure
This looks like a medical device, but the Mystim Tristan belongs to a highly popular line of electro-sex toys designed to give users a buzz. If you've never tried electro-stimulation before, you might be a little leery, but this toy won't shock you. In fact, it can provide anything from a soft prickle to rhythmic pulsing and pushing. (This toy needs to be connected to a Mystim Tension Lover or Mystim Pure Vibes device for its electrical supply. Check out Kinkly's review of the Mystim Pure Vibes Nervstimulator.)

nJoy Pure Wand

X Weird-Looking Things You Can Put In Your Butt for Pleasure

OK, so maybe this one isn't weird looking so much as it's a bit ... terrifying? And, to be perfectly honest, the nJoy Pure Wand is a serious, heavyweight toy. Its eight inches of medical grade steel is designed to be heavy, unyielding and provide serious stimulation to the prostate or G-spot. As it turns out, this is exactly why people love this toy, both for anal and vaginal use. This one isn't for sex toy newbies, but it might just be something to aspire to.
