How Long Can You Leave a Butt Plug in?

For many people, wearing a plug for long periods of time is the norm, but for people who have never done this before, it might seem like a peculiar thing to do. People keep a plug inserted for many different reasons, including:

  • To feel naughty.
  • To stretch out their anal muscles so they can have more comfortable anal sex.
  • To experience pleasure.
  • Because they enjoy the feel of the plug moving around while they go about their lives.

Naturally, keeping a butt plug inside of your anus for long periods of time isn’t something you want to do if you’re a newbie, and it certainly isn’t something you want to do without first inserting a lot of lube.

However, if you’re interested in relaxing your anal muscles so that you can finally have anal sex, this is something you might want to consider doing.

Can You Wear a Butt Plug All Day?

You can definitely wear a butt play all day long, as long as you take frequent breaks, and many people do just that. Stretching out the anal muscles takes time, so wearing a butt plug will relax those muscles a little at a time without you even being aware of it.

Indeed, this is one of the most comfortable ways to stretch out your anal muscles, and you’re likely to experience a lot of pleasure while doing so.

Many people that wear a butt plug during the day carry with them a small plastic bag and a tube of lube, for those times when they have to remove the plug – such as when having a bowel movement – and they need to relube afterwards.

They use the plastic bag to place the butt plug in if they are finished wearing it.

Speaking of lube, there are many different types, and below is a basic guideline on which type of lube to use for which toy:

  • For vinyl toys: you can use any type of lube, including water-based, oil-based, and silicone-based lubes.
  • For rubber or latex toys: avoid using the oil-based lubes because they can break down the plastic and cause it to deteriorate. Stick with water- or silicone-based lubes instead.
  • For silicone toys: use only oil- or water-based lubes with these, because silicone-based lubes can dissolve the surface of the toy, making it very difficult to clean.

If you remove the butt plug due to problems and your pain or bleeding don’t go away after a few minutes, you should see a doctor immediately. Only a doctor can diagnose the problem and make sure that everything is alright.

Can You Wear a Butt Plug While Sleeping?

Wearing a butt plug while you’re sleeping should only be done if you have already worn one during the day and have worked up to wearing it for at least five hours throughout the day – not at one time, of course (keep in mind the two to three hour rule)

Remember, the relaxing of your anal muscles doesn’t happen overnight, so you need to work up slowly to the number of hours you’d like to wear it during the day.

After you get up to five total hours during the day, or more, you can consider sleeping with your butt plug.

The second requirement for wearing your butt plug as you sleep is to make sure you are using the most comfortable butt plug available.

If you are still getting used to it and it is still a bit uncomfortable or awkward, now is not the time to consider sleeping while wearing your butt plug. If you are walking around during the day and you hardly notice it’s there, you are likely ready to wear your butt plug while you sleep.

Last, you’ll want to go to the bathroom before you go to bed and empty your bowels. This is important mostly for the comfort level, because the emptier your bowels are, the more accommodating your anal muscles will be for your butt plug.

If you are truly ready to sleep with your butt plug, you’ll know it immediately because the plug will not fall out during sleep and you will never be awakened by pain or discomfort.

When you’re ready, make sure you lube up real well before you go to bed. In addition to these tips, there are a few others you should pay attention to before sleeping with your butt plug in, including:

  • Use a medium-sized plug, and never used a plug that is very thin and narrow.
  • Avoid plugs that reach very deep inside of you; instead, use one that doesn’t go in very far.
  • Always clean your butt plug before lubing it up and inserting it.

If you’re ready, your sphincter muscles will be able to keep the butt plug in for a long time, because they will be tight enough by that time.

When you first sleep with your butt plug, you may not be able to sleep well because you’ll constantly be aware that you are wearing the plug.

However, over time that will cease to happen, and it won’t be long before you’re getting a good night’s sleep just like you did before you decided to wear a butt plug for your slumber time.

When you wake up, you should empty your bowels even if you don’t feel like you need to, because this is a good way to push the butt plug out of your body. Never try to pull the plug out by hand, because by that time most of your lube will be gone, and it may be painful.

If your anal muscles are sore at this point, not to worry. Just rest up a little bit until you feel like you’re ready to do it all again.

How Long Should You Wear a Butt Plug?

If you’re wondering how long you should wear your butt plug, you should stick with no more than two to three hours at a time.

If you’re sleeping, your muscles are more relaxed and you are likely not moving around as much as you do during the day, which means it’s alright to leave the plug in a little longer.

In addition, you shouldn’t wear the plug to sleep in until you’re used to wearing it for a long time during the day, because this is the only way to make sure your muscles are ready for that type of long-term activity.

Keep in mind that if you feel some irritation or dryness at any point while you’re wearing your butt plug, you should take it out immediately. This can happen even during the night – and don’t worry, you will very likely wake up when the discomfort hits.

This usually happens because the lube is absorbed into the body, meaning the butt plug is in a dry area, making the area more irritable and uncomfortable.

How to Stop a Butt Plug From Falling Out

Butt plugs are not likely to fall out while you’re wearing them, although this is a possibility. Here are some tips to make sure your butt plug doesn’t fall out during long periods of wear:

  • Make sure it isn’t too small.
  • Make sure it is the right shape.
  • Choose one that has a head that is larger than the neck.
  • Try using a little less lube.
  • You may need to buy a different type of butt plug if it keeps falling out.
  • Make sure it is fully inserted so the muscles can grab ahold of it.

Most people who wear their butt plug for long periods of time claim that the cone-shaped plugs work best, but this can vary for each individual.

If you are using just the right amount of lube and it still keeps falling out, it is possible that you’ll need to find one that is a different size and shape. If it keeps falling out, try a bigger butt plug and use a little less lube, and this should do the trick.

Of course, if you’re wearing underwear as you sleep, this is yet another way to stop your butt plug from falling out, so this is definitely something to consider. Or you could try butt plug panties.

Some people have even tried duct tape to keep the plug in place, but tape is usually not recommended because it can be very uncomfortable when you remove it.

Wearing butt plugs for long periods of time is becoming more popular all the time, and if you’re interested in doing this, the important thing to remember is to take it slow.

It won’t happen overnight, but it may happen sooner than you think if you’re following all the rules. You may also read our Butt Plugs Safety guide to know more about how you can safely enjoy wearing butt plugs.
