Love your butt with the classic anal sex toy: the butt plug! These simple toys can provide worlds of pleasure, and there are so many options to choose from that you’re guaranteed to find something to take your orgasms to the next level.
What are Butt Plugs?
Butt plugs come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but most of them have a few key features. The main body is a bulb which goes into your butt. At the bottom, there’s a flared or t-bar base, which prevents it from sliding too far inside your body. And connecting the two parts is a stem, which sits in the entrance to your anus.
Types of Butt Plug
One of the great joys of butt plugs is that there’s so many different kinds to choose from. No matter what you’re looking for, or what your preferences are, you can find something to suit you.
The standard butt plug is the most common version you’ll see, with all the features we’ve described above. If you’re just looking for a simple anal toy, you can’t go wrong with these.
Jeweled butt plugs are very similar, usually having the same overall shape. The real selling point with these is the base, where a colored jewel is set. When you wear the plug, you can see the jewel glinting in your butt.
Tail butt plugs add yet another feature to the base of the plug, this time a tail. These long, fluffy tails can add plenty of extra stimulation, and are perfect for anyone interested in trying animal roleplay.
Beginner butt plugs are usually on the smaller end of the scale, and tend to be made from softer materials to give an amateur a gentle introduction to anal play. On the other end of the scale, extra large butt plugs offer a challenge that even the most experienced will find interesting.
Vibrating butt plugs add yet another dimension to your play, by letting you experience vibrations inside your butt. These usually come with a variety of different modes and strengths, letting you have a different sensation each time you use it. Prostate massagers are another variety of vibrating butt plug, which provide targeted stimulation to a man’s g-spot.
A few kinds of butt plugs allow you to add more pressure after you’ve inserted them. Inflatable butt plugs include a pump that lets you increase the size while it’s inside your body. Meanwhile expanding butt plugs feature a petal design that unfolds once you’ve inserted them, pressing down on different areas of your butt.
Anal beads are a close relative of the butt plug, but instead of one bulb, anal beads are a rod of smaller balls. This provides a unique sensation when you both insert and remove them, and can make for some exceptionally fun play.
Anal training kits are another great choice for beginners, providing plugs in a variety of sizes and sometimes different shapes. You can start with the smaller versions, and work your way up to the larger ones as you become more comfortable.
All of the types we’ve listed above will usually come in either silicone, metal, plastic, glass or TPE. Plastic, glass and metal provide a firmer plug, adding more pressure while you wear them, while silicone and TPE are softer and can often feel more comfortable.
Wearing Butt Plugs
Putting in a butt plug is a relatively simple process. Basically, push it in!
However many people find anal play difficult and sometimes even painful, so taking your time to use the proper technique can make your experience much more enjoyable. Here are a few tips:
- Start small! - Gently massage your anus and the surrounding area to start loosening your muscles. Then insert one finger and get used to how it feels before moving to two or more fingers. Once you’re ready, move onto the plug.
- Use plenty of lubrication. - Unlike the vagina, the anus doesn’t lubricate itself, so make sure you use plenty of lube. You might have to reapply it while wearing the plug, so keep it on hand even after you’ve got it in.
- Take a warm shower. - Another way to help loosen up your butt is a warm shower. Have one 15 minutes or so before play. As an added bonus, you won’t have to worry about mess!
- Take breaks. - Don’t feel like you need to insert the whole plug in one go. Push it in as far as you’re comfortable, then take a break and get used to how it feels as your muscles stretch out. When you’re comfortable, go a little deeper and repeat.
