What is a Butt Plug and Why Should You Care?

There’s a bunch of reasons that butt plugs have become so popular lately, but here’s a few of the most prominent:

  • Increased sexual pleasure. Who doesn’t want that? These cool toys can be used for self- pleasure or during sex if you are a couple. Wearing a butt plug during sex (whether you’re a man or woman) can heighten the sensations of regular intercourse.
  • Some females use butt plugs for “double penetration”, allowing them to experience both their vagina and their butt being filled at the same time. Some women claim that this heightens their pleasure.
  • Anal orgasms can be reached with an anal plug, although this is more advanced-level butt plugging.
  • Men have a prostate (i.e. the male G spot) which a butt plug can help to stimulate, leading to very intense orgasms.

It is crucial that you keep pleasuring yourself (or yourselves) in a way that will let you stay safe. There are two factors that you need to consider when using a butt plug in a safe way:

  • The flared base is of huge importance if you don’t want accidents to happen. This will keep the toy reachable and you will be able to take it out. It’s there to stop the toy slipping inside of you as your butthole contracts and relaxes with pleasure! Do you really want to end up in hospital with a butt plug stuck up your ass? Probably not.
  • Another thing that you should be aware of when buying a butt plug is the material. You need to make sure the material that the toy is made off will not break inside you and cause damage. The most common materials are: proper annealed metalglass, silicone, stainless steel and even wood (although I wouldn’t recommend wood personally). Feeling comfortable is also very important.

How to use a butt plug?

As we all know, in anal sex you need a lot of lubricant, as the bottom doesn’t produce natural lubricant/fluid like the vagina or mouth. You can use silicone lubricant for toys that are not made from silicone and water-based lube for toys that are made from silicone. A little foreplay can definitely work, so try teasing your hole with your finger first, especially if you’re new to ass play or you’ve not been down there in a while.

You definitely need to be relaxed, feel good and get ready for this. After inserting one finger, you can introduce an additional one and when you feel that your hole is relaxed and large enough. Then you should try the toy.

How to clean a butt plug?

Cleaning is also very important. Nonporous materials are a great choice because they can be boiled to make sure there are no germs left. For some toys, however, warm water and soap should suffice. You should definitely not use a toy for vaginal pleasure after anal, however, as this could cause infections.

 It is also highly recommended not to pass your anal toy to somebody else. Do not, under any circumstances, share your butt plug with another man or woman, especially if you use it bare without a condom over the top of it. Generally speaking, your sex toys (butt plugs included) should be for your bum and your bum alone!

Summing Up

It seems like there’s a butt plug out there for everyone, whether you’re into vanilla butt plugs, elegant glass pineapples, or unicorn tails. It doesn’t matter if you decide to go for a medical-grade silicone plug or a toy made from something a little weirder (like stone); just make sure that you read the instructions, play safe, and use lots of the appropriate lubrication every time you use a butt plug. The anal passage cannot be treated the same way as a vagina, so be sure to bear that in mind as you start your bum fun journey!
