Q. My wife is 28 and I am 30; we have been married for three years. We are starting to get into anal sex. We have your book and want to experiment more—we even want to try fisting. Our problem is that we need more toys. The biggest plugs and dildos we can find are 2 1/4" which feels like my max, but she thinks she can take more. Why is it that a big six foot man can only take a 2 1/4" plug? Also, where can we get a speculum? Are there different ones for the ass and the vagina? How do you use it safely?
Dear Mr. G.:
Wow, you've got a lot going on. I don't know where you live, but I am assuming you've visited your local sex toy store and bought everything it's sellin'. For more toys, I encourage you to check out two of the best sex toy purveyors in the world—Good Vibrations located in Berkeley and San Francisco and Toys in Babeland in New York and Seattle. They both have an incredible selection of butt toys, from anal beads to high-quality silicone butt plugs and dildos by great manufacturers like Vixen and Dils for Does. You may also want to check out some of the inflatable butt plugs and dildos on the market; you can go from slim to super with a few squeezes, making it a very versatile toy. As for the size issue, some of the lines of plugs and dongs marketed toward gay men seem to be of the size queen variety. Some of them are downright scary, even to Buttgirl.
So, it seems your wife can take a bigger plug than you, huh? Well, your height has little to do with how much you can stuff in your ass. My recommendation to you: practice, practice, practice.
As for your speculum request, you can find the disposable clear plastic kind and the metal re-usable type at medical supply stores (Toys in Babeland also carries them). Technically, a speculum is a speculum, and you should select a smallish one for anal use. If medical equipment and scenes are your fetish, you can also get some more expensive menacing-looking stainless steel speculums, and you can ask a medical supply house for an anal speculum. Make sure to use plenty of lubricant, insert the speculum slowly, and open it even slower. Go back to the November issue of Taboo and check out the speculum in Hiroko's ass for some inspiration.
