Ass Cram Cone
As you can probably tell, the Ass Cram Cone is inspired by Neapolitan ice cream. While I get that the name is a pun, I personally find the idea of “cramming it in your ass” a bit unappealing!
Still, once it’s in, this butt plug will stay in firmly. We recommend it for people with some experience in anal play due to its wide-ish shape.
This plug has a brown tip, which maybe wasn't the best color choice for an anal toy.
PROS: fun unique shape, stays in place very easily when inserted, brown tip could camouflage mess?
CONS: pricey, not for beginners due to shape

The Etna Anal Stimulator is a luxurious butt plug with Mount Etna erupting as its flared base. Why you would want an Italian volcano inside your bum is beyond me, but cool.
Another stupidly expensive plug, this Italian-inspired plug is made of brass with 24ct gold plating, so it's not in the price range for most of us cretins.
Maybe Donatella owns one. It's very Versace-looking.

This is an interesting product with a detachable pink pony tail. It’s a very campy/girly kind of toy, so it’s great for those who are into unicorns and rainbows. I think I might be their target market here.
Although this plug is super fabulous, the tail can be difficult to clean if you get it dirty, so make sure you're careful during play.

CONS: material is a little "meh", can get tugged on if you're not careful

What is a Butt Plug?
A butt plug is a small anal sex toy that can be worn by any gender. As the name suggests, butt plugs are supposed to plug butt holes!
Most butt plugs have a tapered edge which gradiates out and then becomes a skinny neck. This helps the anus to "close" around the skinny neck, keeping the plug in place.
Butt plug safety
ALL anal-related toys, butt plugs included, should have a flared base that stops the plug from slipping inside your bottom by accident. ALWAYS use a ton of lube when playing anally!
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 plug is made of will not break inside you and cause damage.
Many sexy toys (butt plugs included) are made from unsafe materials that are toxic to your body or let bacteria grow inside their porous surfaces.
The safest adult product materials are borosilicate glass, silicone, ABS plastic, and stainless steel. Avoid sexual products made from toxic materials like jelly rubber and soft plastic.
Why Do People Use Butt Plugs?
There are many reasons why people use butt plugs, but here are 5 of the most common:
- Increased sexual pleasure. Wearing a butt plug during sex (whether you’re a man or woman) can heighten the sensations of regular intercourse. Some plugs might also help to stimulate the prostate or G-spot.
- Double penetration. Those with vaginas may use butt plugs for “double penetration”, allowing them to experience both their vagina and their butt being filled at the same time.
- Discreet public play. Many anal plugs are small enough to be worn all day, so they're a fun thing to wear as you go about your daily life, keeping your dirty little secret to yourself.
- Preparing for anal sex. Many people use butt plugs to pre-stretch their anus before they're going to recieve anal sex, making the sex much more comfortable.
- It's hot! For some people (myself included) the idea of being plugged up is really hot, especially if you're wearing the plug out in public.
How to Use A Buttplug
You need a lot of lubricant for anal play, as the bottom doesn’t produce natural lubricant/fluid like the vagina or mouth.
Water-based lube is compatible with nearly all sex toys, so invest in plenty!
A little foreplay is ideal before any kind of anal play, so try teasing your hole with your lubed-up finger first. After inserting one finger, you can introduce an additional one to gently stretch out.
Relax and allow it to happen.
When you feel that your hole is relaxed and large enough, then you should try the plug SLOWLY. Insert the lubed-up plug slowly, stopping if it feels painful.
Removing a butt plug
Taking a butt plug out is difficult at the best of times. It's essential to make sure that you've used plenty of high-quality lube, as this will make removal much easier.
Relax, give yourself time, and begin to putt the plug out very slowly. Give your anus time to relax and open up around the shape.
DO NOT just yank it out! It could take you a good 5 minutes, but the product will come out if you relax enough.
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. Personally, I'm super into the B Ball Uno!
What can I say? I love balls.
Whether you go for a medical-grade silicone plug or a toy made from stone... read the instructions, play safe, and use lots of the appropriate lube every time. Have fun!
