Anal Toys
Any toy used anally should have a flared base, to keep it from slipping all the way into the rectum. For an in/out sensation, look for a dildo, a toy that is the same diameter all along the shaft. If you want to leave your toy in place while you do other things, look for a plug that bulges just before the base, allowing your anal muscles to grip it. And use lube -- lots of it. The anus is not self-lubricating, so a thick, stay-put lube (try Astroglide) will make any anal play more pleasurable.

Here is a list of anal toys that the "Women's Only" store supply:
