1 Test Winner

  • Want a 100% silicone anal toy
  • Like the idea of a "peep hole"

Oxy Ass Anchor

  • Prefer using a silicone based lube for anal play
  • Struggle with grip issues of limited hand strength
  • Don't have a partner to help insert the toy

First up on the list of anal gaping toys is the Oxy Ass Anchor Expanding Butt Plug! Despite its somewhat intimidating appearance, this anal gaper is fairly beginner-friendly as these things go. Made completely of soft and pliable silicone, this toy is both relatively easy to insert and remove from your anus. The flexible t-bar base also makes for a comfortable wear. Thanks to its hollow hole design, using this plug will give the user’s partner nearly full access to the inside of their hole, simply by poking through the plug!

  • Affordable
  • Comfortable and silky smooth surface
  • Hollow design adds a kinky touch

  • No different color or size options

I chose this toy as my “Test Winner” for a reason: despite its intimidating appearance, it’s relatively beginner-friendly and easy to use! As long as the size of the neck doesn’t pose an issue for you, this anal gaper offers essentially the same insertion experience as any other large anal toy. Of course, due to the expanding design, insertion may be a lot easier with a partner to help you. Our tester also did note that the tip is a lot more rounded than tapered, so it will take some patience to get in! The main benefit of this anal expander is that the wings expand inside the anus, firmly holding the toy in place as you go. Being made of silicone, the toy is quite comfortable once inserted. I think this toy is a great option for anyone looking for an anal gaper, especially when you consider that you can pick one up for less than $30. Priced to sell and made from high-quality materials, there’s really no downside when it comes to the Oxy Ass Anchor Expanding Butt Plug!

2 Budget-Friendly

Claw Expanding Anal Dilator Plug

 Claw Expanding Anal Dilator

  • Want a budget-friendly anal gaper
  • Don’t mind TPE
  • Love a challenge

Claw Expanding Anal Dilator

  • Don’t like TPE
  • Want to use multiple tube types
  • Are used to smaller plugs

Sized perfectly for a challenge, the Claw Expanding Anal Dilator Plug is an oversized anal gaper you can pick up on a budget! This TPE toy is easy to use, with all four petals bending in as you insert the toy. Once inserted, the petals will pop back out, expanding inside the anus and holding the toy in place. Similar to my first pick, the main difference here is that this anal expander is more budget-friendly. Despite that, it still features a t-bar base, ensuring you’ll be able to comfortably wear the gaper both for personal and partner-based pleasure. Want to step up your anal play game but worried you might go over budget? Cast those worries aside and pick up the Claw Expanding Anal Dilator Plug today!

  • Affordable
  • Easy to use
  • Quad-petal design
  • T-bar base

  • Porous
  • No color options
Claw Expanding Anal Dilator
Length4.5 inches
Diameter(Closed) 2.25 inches, (open) 4.25 inches
Diameter (internal)(Center hole) 1.5 inches

I chose this anal gaper as the “Cheapest” option simply because it’s currently on sale. When on sale, this toy costs less than $20! Fully priced, it will run you anywhere from $30-$50. Fortunately, you can usually find it on sale! Design-wise, it’s essentially the same as my “Test Winner” anal gaper. However, the reason this toy isn’t quite as high on the list comes down to the materials it’s made from. While being made from TPE isn’t the worst thing in the world, it’s important to note that TPE is a porous material. As such, this toy can only be cleaned, not fully sterilized as you’d prefer. Aside from the materials used, there really isn’t much to complain about. The Claw is sized as big—if not larger—than many other anal gaping toys, features a t-bar base for added comfort, and easily allows the anus to be accessed once the plug is fully inserted. If you don’t have much money to spend but still want a capable anal gaper then the Claw is an easy toy to recommend!

3 Best for Beginners

Randy Silicone Dildo by Vixen

 Randy Silicone Dildo

  • Want a toy for vaginal or anal use
  • Prefer dildos over plugs
  • Need a harness-compatible dildo

Randy Silicone Dildo

  • Need a budget-friendly option
  • Are new to anal toys
  • Don’t like the design options

So far we’ve mainly looked at anal gaper toys that have been plugs. However, if you’re in search of an anal expander that isn’t a plug then perhaps this dildo will do you right instead! Measuring six inches long with a maximum diameter exceeding two inches, the Randy Silicone Dildo from Vixen is a short yet massive toy. Curved for maximum g-spot/p-spot stimulation, this dildo is fully prepared to pleasure whatever holes you decide to place it in. Although not advertised as such, multiple users have found that the non-slip base can double as a suction cup base. All in all, this toy is a great option for when you just want something large but haven’t quite yet decided what to do with it!

  • Made of silicone
  • Maximum diameter of 2.25”
  • Perfect for g/spot/p-spot stimulation
  • Dual-use

  • No storage bag included
  • Base may be uncomfortable over time
Randy Silicone Dildo
Length6 inches
Insertable length5.75 inches
Diameter2.25 inches

As far as anal gaping toys go, the Randy is definitely a strong contender. Being the only dildo on this list, it easily took the “Dildo” mention, but simply being a dildo isn’t why I included it on this list. It all comes down to sizing. While six inches isn’t particularly long for a dildo, the fact that the Randy maxes out at a diameter of 2.25” certainly gives it a lot of anal potential. Being curved for better stimulation only adds to the “bang for buck” factor. Speaking of bucks, the Randy isn’t exactly cheap. Coming in at around $80 (or more), this anal gaper dildo will require a bit of commitment on your part if you decide to get it. On the plus side, it’s not limited strictly to anal use, so long as you clean it properly between uses. With all of this in mind, I think that the Randy will be a good pick for anyone who’s looking for an anal dildo that presents a serious challenge!

There comes a point when single-size anal gaping toys just aren’t enough for a person anymore. If you’ve reached that point then I think you’ll enjoy the next anal gaper I have in store for you. Introducing the Cock Locker Inflatable Butt Plug! This unique toy features a hand pump, a hose, and an inflatable butt plug that pumps up to an impressive 4.69 inches in diameter!

Compared to many other anal gaper toys, the Cock Locker Inflatable Butt Plug offers good value for the money. While it does cost equal to or more than $50, you also get to choose what size plug you want. Considering this added level of flexibility, I’d argue that the plug is easily worth the asking price. It’s easy to operate thanks to the included hand pump and doesn’t suffer from quality issues like many similar products. Still, there is one potential issue you may run into with this anal expander, and that’s the fact it’s made of latex. While this shouldn’t pose an issue for most people, those with allergies won’t be able to enjoy this toy, If you don’t have a latex allergy then it’s easy to recommend this toy. As long as you can already fit the 1.9” diameter of the plug at its smallest setting inside you, you’ll definitely be able to get a lot of use out of this exciting expandable plug!

5 Hollow

Simple but effective, the Huge Hollow Tunnel Butt Plug is exactly what the name would have you think. This anal gaper may not leave much to the imagination, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive once you fit it inside! You can purchase this anal expander by itself or as part of a set. With sizes ranging from 2.63” up to 3.66” maximum diameter, you definitely won’t be left wishing it could go larger. Plugs are offered in both clear and black versions, allowing you to leave as much—or as little—to the imagination as you desire.

Length3 - 4.13 inches
Diameter(Outer) 2.16 - 3.66 inches, (inner) 1.22 - 2.16 inches

These anal gaping toys are fairly simple but they get the job done. I really like how you get to choose between the black and the clear option, although having more colors would be preferable. Speaking of, let’s talk about the differences between the two. Each color has a unique sizing system so you’ll want to pay attention to this before placing an order. Aside from that, they’re exactly the same. Being made from silicone, this anal gaper is very easy to clean and can even be sterilized as needed. This is especially useful if you’re sharing a set between multiple people. Considering just how large this plug can get and the fact that the clear version offers an excellent view, the Huge Hollow Anal Plug was the obvious choice for the “Hollow” category. If you’re looking for the best viewing experience around, this toy surely won’t disappoint. Overall, I think this toy is worth trying for yourself. While you might not be able to use the largest size initially, with a bit of practice, you can get there eventually!

Last on my list of anal gaping toys is the Stainless Steel Sims Anal Speculum, an all-metal anal toy. This anal gaper will appeal to two types of people: those who love extreme anal play and those interested in the medical fetish. Either way and regardless of your reasoning, this speculum is a toy that won’t disappoint! Spreadable to a maximum diameter of 2”, this toy can be easily adjusted using the adjustment screw. Being made completely of stainless steel, you won’t have any trouble cleaning or sterilizing this toy once play time is over. While the Stainless Steel Sims Anal Speculum won’t appeal to everyone, for those who do want it, I recommend picking it up. After all, it costs less than $30!

This anal gaper is a toy that’s best left to those with a decent amount of experience under their belt. While you won’t necessarily hurt yourself with this toy, it’s definitely a possibility if you don’t know what you’re doing. Fortunately, this anal expander is pretty easy to operate. You can expand the prongs using the adjustment screw, and it maxes out at 2 inches, which shouldn’t be too risky for more experienced users. Priced at less than $30, it’s a pretty good value overall. While it doesn’t offer quite as “filling” of an experience as your traditional plug, it does offer a different experience which could be a welcomed change for advanced users. While I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this to most people, I definitely think it has a purpose. If you’re bored of other toys then it’s worth trying out, but if you also happen to have a medical fetish, then this is practically a must-have for your toy box!

Types of Anal Gaping Toys

Before we get into my recommendations, I figured it’s a good time to go over the various types of anal gaping toys you’re likely to run into. Keep these differences in mind as you’re shopping. Different types of toys work better for different purposes, but that doesn’t mean you need to limit yourself to one type of anal gaper!
  • Butt Plug Set – A set containing multiple sizes of butt plugs. While the plugs included in the set will generally all use the same shape, some sets may offer different styles of plugs as well!
  • Expanding Plugs – These plugs use an external pump to expand the plug size, often doubling the size of the plug (or more!). Hand pumps are the most common method used for pumping these toys, but the lack of long-term reliability may be an issue (depending on the product in question).
  • Hollow Plugs – These plugs function similarly to regular butt plugs. However, they’re completely hollow in the middle, which allows the wearer’s partner to have full visual access inside the wearer’s anus.
  • Anal Spectrums – These medically-inspired devices are designed to manually spread the anus. Essentially, they’re the same devices used by doctors to perform a Pap smear, just repurposed for anal use!

How to Use Anal Gaping Toys

Although there are a few different types of anal gaping toys you can choose from, they all generally work in the same manner. Is it your first time using an anal gaper? If so, you can follow this general process outline to safely and properly enjoy your new toy!

Apply Lube

Apply Lube

Assuming you already have your anal gaper in hand, the first thing you’ll need to do is apply lube. Apply lube directly to your anus, as well as to the toy itself. If you haven’t warmed up yet, you can just lube your anus for now, saving lubing the toy itself until right before you insert it.

Warm Up

Warm Up

Before attempting to use any type of large anal toy, it’s always a good idea to warm yourself up first. This is fairly easy to do! You can either do this with your fingers (massaging around and inside the area) or by using a smaller toy. Make sure you’re properly warmed up before attempting to insert the anal gaping toy to prevent injury.

Insert the Toy

Insert the Toy

Once you’re all warmed up and the anal expander is properly lubricated, it’s time to try inserting the toy. Apply constant pressure while inserting, but don’t force anything. If needed, add more lube, and try warming up more if lube alone isn’t enough to make insertion possible. You’ll need to continue this gentle, consistent force until you’ve pushed the toy properly into place. Once you feel the toy fall into place, you can start to really enjoy your new anal gaping toy!

How to Clean Anal Gaping Toys

It might be a bit of a pain, but fortunately, cleaning your anal gaping toys isn’t very hard. All toys can be cleaned, but only toys without electrical components that are made from a non-porous material—such as silicone-–can be cleaned. To clean your anal gaper, simply use antibacterial soap and warm water. Clean once, then wash the toy off with water only. To sterilize your anal expander, drop the toy in a pot of boiling water for a minimum of five minutes. Once you’re done cleaning and/or sterilizing your toy, it’s time to dry it off. Pat the toy down using a towel and then leave it out to air dry. Never store your toy(s) away when they’re still damp as this can cause bacteria and mold to grow in the moisture!


Anal training isn’t hard, per se, but it is a process. Like any other type of training, anal training takes time. Rushing will only lead to injury so you should listen to your body and maintain a reasonable pace as you work towards larger sizes.

They definitely can be, especially if you’re using a size that you haven’t gotten used to yet. That said, using anal gaping toys should never be painful! If it is, you need to remove the toy and take a break for a few days before trying a smaller toy.

Water-based lube is my go-to option as it can be safely used with any type of sex toy material. Some materials—such as metal—can be safely used with non-water-based lubes, but it’s always a good idea to check first. This will help you avoid damaging your sex toy unnecessarily!

Many experts recommend limiting your use of an anal toy to three hours or less. That said, many people use these types of toys for far longer periods of time without issue. Ultimately, the final decision is up to you. Just don’t sleep with one of these toys in!

Non-porous materials like stainless steel or silicone are best as they can be fully sterilized after use. Porous materials like TPE can be okay if used by a singular person, but they’re not ideal since there’s no way to completely remove bacteria.

What are Anal Gaping Toys?

Anal gaping toys are toys that are designed to keep the anus spread apart. These toys can come in many different forms—from butt plugs to speculums—-but they all serve the same purpose. Although not specifically limited to more advanced users, most gaping toys are rather large, making them best for the experienced.
