What is an anal hook?
An anal hook is a sex toy that sits comfortably in the anal canal and can be used for intense restraint, deep internal massage or tantalizing temperature play alone or with a partner.

It’s important to remember that anal hooks are serious toys that can hurt if not used properly, so it’s recommended that beginners work up to using them with the help of a partner.
