Why Do People Use Butt Plugs?

Posted by Anna Bergeron on

More and more people of both genders and all sexual orientations are learning to appreciate using a butt plug, and there are many reasons for this.

For one thing, any type of anal sexual activity is often considered taboo or forbidden, which ironically increases the interest people have in it.

In addition, once people learn a few simple tricks, both men and women find that using a butt plug is erotic and very sensual, and these are just a few of the reasons why people love this very special and unique sex toy.

People of both genders tend to use butt plugs for one of two reasons: for simple sexual stimulation, and to stretch out the anal muscles to prepare them for anal sex.

In both of these cases, butt plugs are a tremendous benefit, and because they come in a wide variety of styles and designs, you can easily find the one that is right for you with just a little research and due diligence.


Because the anus has a lot of sensitive nerve endings in it, you’ll likely be surprised by how good it feels the first time you stimulate that area of your body.

Both men and women feel a titillating thrill using a butt plug or another type of anal sex toy, and once your anal muscles get stretched out and relaxed some, it feels even better.

Indeed, stretching out those muscles is a very important part of your butt plug experience, but this doesn’t have to take long if you don’t want it to.

Contrary to what many people believe, both men and women have claimed that they’ve had some of their best orgasms through the use of a butt plug, so if you’re looking for something kinky and very rewarding to add to your sexual repertoire, giving a butt plug a try is always a great option.

Butt plugs are made out of many different materials and come in many different sizes, so if you’re a little timid about using one of these toys, you can simply start out with a small one and move up from there.

One of the reasons why anal stimulation feels so good is because once you get used to the butt plug, you can do a lot of things with it when it gets inside of you.

You can push the plug in and out, explore the inside of the anus with it, and challenge yourself to see if you can come up with a few new tricks. Remember, sex is there for fun, and so is playing with sex toys such as butt plugs.

Let yourself experiment while you play with your butt plug, and you’re likely to come up with a few new techniques every time you play.


Believe it or not, both gay and straight men love using butt plugs. Why? To put it bluntly, it just feels good, but it does far more than that.

Men love butt plugs because this is a great toy for stimulating and massaging their prostate gland, which is frequently compared to a woman’s G-spot and in fact is often called a P-spot.

The prostate gland is a walnut-shaped gland that sits under the bladder and is easier to find than you might think, and there are even prostate orgasms that many men have come to love.

Of course, men also love butt plugs because of those many sensitive nerve endings located in the anal area, and when these nerve endings are stimulated, they can cause mind-blowing orgasms every time.

It sometimes takes a little practice to get the technique down, especially if you’ve never before done much with the anal area in the bedroom, but it won’t take you long to get the hang of it.

You’ll need to insert the butt plug a little at a time each day until you can insert it all the way in, then lay back and prepare for some very intense orgasms.

Are there separate male and female butt plugs? The answer is “no,” but there are many different types, sizes, and designs of butt plugs, so whether you’re male or female, gay or straight, it is very easy to find a butt plug that perfectly suits your needs.

The materials that make up butt plugs can be silicone, metal, or jelly, among others, and they even have textured and uniquely shaped butt plugs, so the only thing you need to know before you buy one is what kind you are most interested in.


Okay, let’s get to the good part about men and butt plugs: the prostate. It is easy to find the prostate gland because you don’t have to go too far into the anus before you locate it.

In fact, you may want to explore the anus with your finger first so that you can determine exactly where it is, and you can save the butt plug for when you’re a little more experienced.

Either way, a prostate massage is one of the main reasons why even straight men love their butt plugs.

There are also butt plugs that have a slightly curved tip, which are specifically designed to reach that prostate gland quickly so that you can start rubbing on it.

The plugs with the slightly rounded tips work best when you’re trying to enjoy prostate stimulation, because you certainly don’t want anything too pointed poking you in the anus.

The pointier they are, the more they should be used just to penetrate the anus, not to massage the prostate gland.

If you’re a man who is interested in experiencing an extraordinary orgasm, simply wear your butt plug to massage the prostate while your partner gives you a hand or blow job, and this should do the trick.

The double action equals double the stimulation and double the fun, so you don’t have to just sit there and massage your prostate gland to experience something amazing. In fact, when both you and your partner participate in anal sexual activity, the results are always unforgettable.


Prostate orgasms happen when you massage the prostate gland in just the right way, and not only does it feel fantastic, it is also very healthy for you.

Medical studies have proven that regular prostate orgasms not only cleanse the prostate area, but they can improve certain medical conditions, including swelling or inflammation of the prostate.

If you’re suffering with prostatitis or a few other prostate-related medical conditions, having regular prostate orgasms can help.

Some of the conditions that can be treated with prostate orgasms include benign prostatic hypertrophy, or BPH, and they can even soothe and relieve many types of prostate distress, including pain and inflammation in that area.

Prostate massages allow for elimination of seminal fluid (semen) without ejaculation, and it not only increases blood flow to that area, but it also nourishes and oxygenates the area, which is always a good thing.

It also isn’t difficult to learn how to achieve an orgasm through prostate stimulation. Once you get used to the butt plug itself, the rest is fairly easy.

You have to relax and have some confidence in yourself, but with a little practice, it can be achieved a lot sooner than you think. You can press down on the prostate gland firmly if you like, because your body will tell you if you’re pressing too hard.

A firm and stimulating massage will do the trick, and soon you’ll be having prostate orgasms and nourishing that part of your body without even thinking about it.


Not surprisingly, women use butt plugs for the same reasons that men do: because it is stimulating and it feels good. Remember that the anus has a lot of very sensitive nerve endings in it, and these nerve endings respond to the touch of your finger or a butt plug.

There are even butt plugs that are shaped like penises, which seem to be just what many women are looking for when they’re shopping for the perfect butt plug.

Much like men who receive hand or blow jobs while they’re stimulating themselves with a butt plug, women can enjoy regular intercourse while wearing a butt plug, which makes the experience that much more erotic and exciting.

Because butt plugs tend to be considered taboo, more and more people are becoming interested in using them, and just like men, women have claimed to have some of their best orgasms while using a butt plug.

It may seem odd that both genders, as well as people of all sexual orientations, are enjoying anal sexual activity, but they seem to love this type of fun in the bedroom.

Because it is considered taboo by some, a lot of people don’t admit that they use a butt plug during their sexual playtime, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.

In fact, billions of dollars’ worth of sex toys are sold each and every year, and butt plugs seem to be sold in greater quantities with each passing year.

Let’s face it, everyone has an anus, and, therefore, everyone has the capability of enjoying some incredible anal playtime night after night. Butt plugs make this playtime not only easier, but a lot more fun as well, especially once you learn to manipulate the plugs and make your activity your own.


Having double the fun in bed is a lot easier once you decide to get both your genitals and your anus stimulated at the same time, and this can happen with both men and women.

The term “double penetration” simply means penetrating two bodily orifices at the same time, and this type of activity makes for some absolutely amazing sex.

If you’re a man, you can simply ask your partner for a hand or blow job while you’re wearing your butt plug, and women can simply have both vaginal and anal sex at the same time.

It isn’t awkward or difficult to do; in fact, it is going to feel a lot more natural than you might think, and your orgasms are guaranteed to be a lot more intense.

Why do people enjoy double penetration so much? Well, the answer is easy to figure out: double the pleasure, double the fun, double the stimulation.

Once you get used to anal stimulation, you can easily combine this act with the regular sex act so that you get a lot more out of your experience in the bedroom.

It can be enjoyed by both men and women, and it is a great way to add to your list of things you’d like to do in bed!


Butt plugs are also a great way to participate in foreplay and enjoy some fun time with your partner in a brand-new way.

You can stimulate your partner’s genitals and anus with a good butt plug, and because you’re both getting so involved in the activity, it is guaranteed to end up being an experience that neither of you will forget.

If you’re already using sex toys such as dildos, cock rings, and strap-ons in the bedroom, adding anal plugs makes the experience that much more exciting.

Let’s face it, sex is not a spectator sport, and the most fulfilling sexual experiences always involve two people who each work hard to please their partner.

Incorporating sex toys, which includes butt plugs, into your sexual playtime is the perfect way to guarantee that the experience will be memorable.

Since both men and women love butt plugs, this is the perfect item to add to your stack of sex toys, and it will never disappoint.

Of course, you should also keep in mind that when you’re first getting used to butt plugs, you shouldn’t use them every single night because you’ll need a few days in between each playtime to concentrate on something else so your anal muscles have a chance to relax.

Try waiting two to four days in between each anal playtime, then you can decrease the down time as you get more used to using the butt plug. Soon, you’ll be able to enjoy your butt plug more often, but it’s always best to take it easy in the beginning.


If you ask anybody how it feels to use a butt plug, they’ll probably tell you that the feeling they get is one of “fullness.”

This full, complete feeling is what people who love butt plugs look forward to the most, and although it sometimes feels like you’re going to have a bowel movement when you’re a newbie, that rarely happens.

Instead, the full feeling makes you feel a little more fulfilled and sexually stimulated, which is the feeling you were going for.

To get the most out of your butt plug experience, you should always go to the bathroom and empty your bladder completely first, then clean yourself off down there with soap and water, or even an alcohol-free baby wipe.

You should also clean the butt plug itself with mild soap and warm water, and if you want to use a douche or enema, make sure you do this three to four hours before using your butt plug.

When you first get started, you won’t be able to insert the butt plug very far into the anus, but as you practice more, you’ll get to where the plug will go in all the way. Naturally, it takes a while to get to this point, but it is always worth it in the end.

In fact, the further the butt plug goes into the anus, the “fuller” you will feel, and this feeling of fullness always increases the erotic feelings you always experience when you’re using one of these plugs.

If you’re trying to get used to your butt plug, remember two important rules: go slowly every time, and always use a lot of lube. This applies to both beginners and those who are more experienced, because bum activity is completely different than genital sexual activity.

The vagina self-lubricates and the anus does not, which is why going slow and using lots of lube is crucial with any type of anal sexual activity.

There are a lot of reasons why both men and women love their butt plugs. After you get used to being anally stimulated with these toys, you can try wearing them for two to three hours at a time during the day, even while you’re doing laundry or cleaning house.

Some people, in fact, find butt plug-wearing so stimulating that they wear their plug at night while they sleep. Getting “plugged in” is something more and more men and women have decided to do to increase their sexual satisfaction and stimulation.

Butt plugs are nothing new, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to come up with a few new tricks and fun ways to use these plugs in the bedroom. Regardless of how kinky you get, your butt plug will add to your sexual experience every time.
