Types of Butt Plugs

Posted by Anna Bergeron on

If you’re interested in anal sex, but you’ve never done it before, it’s time to buy yourself a butt plug. Butt plugs are sexual devices inserted into the anus for either sexual stimulation or to stretch out the anal muscles so that you can prepare yourself for anal sex.

Let’s face it, the anal muscles are always tight, so they have to be stretched out before you can truly enjoy anal sex, and this is something a butt plug does best.

The interesting thing about butt plugs is that you can wear one for hours at a time, which slowly stretches out the anal muscles so that you can get the results you want.

Butt plugs are usually tapered so that they get wider near the base, which means you can insert them slowly, get used to the tightness, then insert them further the next time so that your anal muscles stretch out even more.

If you’re using a butt plug to stretch out those muscles for anal sex, you’ll want to do so slowly so that it isn’t painful. Of course, butt plugs can also be used just for sexual stimulation, and they are now used by both men and women of all sexual orientations.

There are also many different types of butt plugs, but once you get familiar with them, it should be easy to purchase the one that is best for you.

Classic Butt Plugs

Traditional butt plugs are tapered toward the tip so that you can start with the small tip and work your way through the thicker parts to relax the anal muscles.

Butt plugs are intentionally made rather small so that you’re not intimidated by them, but they are still long enough to do a great job at stretching out the anal muscles over time so that both anal stimulation and anal sex will be a lot more comfortable.

Butt plugs also come in a wide variety of materials, including silicone, nickel-free aluminum alloy metal, and even glass. All of them are smooth and comfortable, so the rest of this decision depends mostly on your personal preferences and tastes.

Fortunately, butt plugs are generally not very expensive, so if you try one and find it doesn’t work for some reason, it won’t cost you a lot to go ahead and purchase another one and give that one a try.

You’ll also notice that butt plugs have flared bases or special stoppers at the end, and that is to prevent the plug from getting stuck inside the anus. If you use it correctly, you won’t have to worry about this happening.

Some butt plugs even come with decorative bases that make them look attractive, such as those with fake gems or flowers on them, as well as ends that come in shapes that are round or heart shaped.

The butt plug itself can also vary from product to product.

Although most butt plugs have a tapered design, many of them also have a shape that looks like they are made up of many beads stacked on top of one another, which produces a lot of extra stimulation during playtime.

Still, other butt plugs come in a phallic shape, which definitely adds to the eroticism of the occasion.

As you can see, when you’re searching for a standard butt plug, you’ll have a lot of options to choose from, so whether you want a basic silicone plug with a standard shape and design or one that comes with a fancy fake gem on the base, you can easily find what you’re looking for every time.

Tail Butt Plugs

Tail butt plugs are regular butt plugs with a fake animal tail attached to the base. More often than not, these tails are made to look like the tail of a wolf, fox, cat, dog, or some other similar animal.

Perfect for role playing, these butt plugs come in many different lengths and colors, and sometimes even the plug itself is made in colors such as pink and black.

Butt plugs that come with tails are usually made out of either stainless steel or silicone, and the real surprise is the uniqueness of the tails, because they can come in colors such as brown, black, white, pink, red, blue, purple, and orange, as well as tails that are multicolored and tails that come in a rainbow design.

If you have a preference regarding what your butt plug looks like, you can easily find what you’re looking for due to the variety of colors and designs.

Best of all, tail butt plugs come with a very soft type of fur, and the tail parts themselves can be as long as nine inches in length or even longer. They are actually very luxurious sex toys, and they are perfect for lots of naughty games or role-playing games in the bedroom.

One of the things most users love about these types of butt plugs is how the tail feels against their skin. In fact, this can add a lot of kinkiness to your current sexual repertoire, but the tails are also made to be safe while you’re involved in your playtime.

The average tail butt plug is 3.5 to 4 inches in length, so it is roughly the same size as other butt plugs. Tail butt plugs even come in glow-in-the-dark options, making it a truly unique and one-of-a-kind sex toy.

Of course, the tail part is the fun part of the plug, and because it comes in so many designs and colors, you can easily find the perfect plug for any type of anal play you love to participate in.

Princess Butt Plugs

Princess butt plugs are those that are made for the princess in your life. If you’re involved with a diva and the two of you love to participate in anal sexual activity, a princess butt plug is what you need.

The amazing part of a princess butt plug is all the different designs at the base of the plug. These butt plugs contain colorful fake gems, many different shapes, and even bases with sayings and words on them – all to highlight the character of that beautiful princess in your life.

Options include gems that come in red, blue, purple, pink, and clear, which make it look just like a diamond; shapes include round and heart shaped; and bases with sayings such as master’s property, daddy’s girl, brat, f*ck toy, spank me, daddy’s l’il monster, sissy, feel the burn, little one, little princess, and many more.

Indeed, there is such a wide variety of sayings that you are likely to find just what you want whenever you want your butt plug to make a statement.

Let’s face it, butt plugs provide for a lot of fun in the bedroom, but once you find a butt plug that is attractive and actually speaks to you, they can offer you a lot more than just a little anal fun in the bedroom.

Princess butt plugs also make great presents for that special lady in your life. After all, what woman wouldn’t love a special, gorgeous butt plug that not only works the way it’s supposed to work, but also looks luxurious and is personalized to describe them perfectly in every sense of the word?

There are even some online stores that will custom design these butt plugs for you, resulting in a saying that is just right for that special woman of yours.

Vibrating Butt Plugs

To no one’s surprise, there are butt plugs that vibrate, and many of them even come with a remote-control device that makes it easier and faster to increase the speed and intensity that you’re experiencing.

Once again, vibrating butt plugs can be made out of stainless steel or silicone, and they come in a wide variety of lengths, thicknesses, and designs. The only difference between these and other butt plugs is the fact that they vibrate.

Vibrating butt plugs are usually recommended for advanced users, but even some beginners can learn to use them quickly.

They come wire free or wired, and many of them have up to 10 or more different speeds, meaning you can start out at a lower speed and slowly increase over time to the faster speeds.

Vibrating butt plugs add a little more oomph to your bedroom anal activity, especially since you can change the speeds and get just the right one for your needs.

If you’ve never used a vibrating butt plug before, not to worry. They are truly easier than you think to use, and the important thing to remember is to start out slow and go from there.

In addition, many vibrating butt plugs also come with a USB device in case you need to recharge the toy quickly. These butt plugs are used by both men and women, in part because they provide such a titillating experience each time you use them.

Vibrating butt plugs can be used for both anal stimulation and for stimulating the prostate gland in men.

In fact, many of them are slightly curved at the tip just for this purpose, and since the prostate area is often compared to the G-spot in women, this is one area you’ll appreciate getting stimulated regularly.

Vibrating butt plugs serve a multitude of purposes, so if you wish to add a little eroticism to your regular anal play, this is the perfect way to do it.

Inflatable Butt Plugs

Inflatable butt plugs are specially made to inflate and grow in size, and they are really designed for intermediate to advanced users. If you’ve been using a butt plug for a while, you’ll likely do well with the ones that vibrate, and they are also very easy to operate.

All you do is lather it up with lube, insert it into the anus in a comfortable position, and slowly pump the inflator so that air gets into the butt plug and makes it bigger and wider.

Inflatable butt plugs are usually made out of a phthalates-free rubber, and they start out at between two inches and eight inches in size, getting even bigger, of course, once they’re inflated.

Many inflatable butt plugs are also vibrating plugs, so you get double the pleasure each time you use it. Most are not waterproof, and many of them also contain latex, so these are two things that you need to remember when you’re shopping for these toys.

When you’re interested in adding a little extra girth to your size, an inflatable butt plug is what you want. The ball pump is easy to squeeze, and it does a fantastic job of making the inflation comfortable on your part.

In addition, although most inflatable butt plugs come with a tapered design, some of them come phallic shaped and in other designs as well, making them a great addition to your sex toy collection.

There are also a few advantages to using inflatable butt plugs. They put less strain on the sphincter muscle, they offer an even better feeling of fullness, and they can even make intercourse and some sex toy play a lot more comfortable.

If you’re already using a butt plug, giving an inflatable butt plug a try will certainly enhance your experience, and you can inflate it until you’re the most comfortable.

This means you have a lot of control over this particular situation – which is sexy and erotic in and of itself!

Hollow Butt Plugs

Hollow butt plugs not only stretch out the anal muscles to prepare them for anal sex, but their hollow design also allows for a little butt action once they’re inserted. You can easily insert these in your man, then practice a little anal sex afterwards.

The butt plug holds the butt open for a variety of reasons, so once he has this butt plug inserted, you have control over him and can do whatever you want!

Hollow butt plugs are often made out of some type of plastic or rubber, and they are made in various sizes and colors. In fact, many of them are even made in a clear design, allowing you to view the area deep inside of your lover.

Just like other anal toys, these butt plugs need to be used with a lot of water- or silicone-based lube, and the directions on the package will tell you which lube is best.

The important thing to remember is that you need lube every time you play with this plug – and lots of it!

If you’re into enema play, diaper play, or any other kinky activity, a hollow butt plug can make that play even more erotic. Some hollow butt plugs even come with a harness to keep your man in a certain position while you have your way with him.

In colors that include black and clear, among others, hollow butt plugs are great for all types of anal play and anal sexual activities, which means that if you think hard enough, you can likely think up even more ways to use them.
