101 Advice on Butt Plugs

Bodyjoys’ beginner’s guide to butt plugs

It’s never too late to explore new realms. If you’ve always been curious about butt plugs, now’s the time to dive in.

Regardless of sexual orientation or gender, anal plugs can enhance sexual pleasure in solo or partnered play. Read on and give it a go!

What is a butt plug?

Butt plugs are simple yet genius sex toys. These booty toys give hands-free anal stimulation for extended periods of time.

Butt plugs go into your anus and stay there during foreplay and sex, you don’t move them ‘in-out’ like anal dildos or anal beads. Rather, the plugs provide stimulation just from staying in place – easy and very effective!

You can wear a butt plug during almost any sexual activity, which makes them a must-have sex toy for novices to backdoor play as well as for experienced connoisseurs. Some like to wear them for “training” – using them even whilst at work!

Butt plugs are typically shaped like a teardrop, featuring a flared base that safely prevents the toys from disappearing into the rectum (you might be surprised, but without the flared base, this is entirely possible).

What are the pleasures and benefits of using a butt plug?

Your anus is supercharged with nerve endings, making the asshole incredibly sensitive – it’s effectively a spring of spellbinding delight and joy. Fant-ass-tic!

People and couples that try butt plugs don’t give them up, ever, nope. They adore them for many wonderful reasons:

  • A fun and super pleasurable way to explore anal sex and sensation
  • Prepare and stretch your sphincters ahead of anal sex with your partner (aka “anal training”)
  • Intensify orgasm when masturbating or having sex with your partner
  • Experience intense sensations of fullness and pressure that permeate the entire pelvic area
  • Achieve an anal orgasm by massaging your prostate or P-spot (for men)
  • Enrich your sex life and sexual well-being

How do I use a butt plug?

Using a butt plug is all about pleasure and it should never feel uncomfortable. Preparation is key! To make the experience as memorable as possible, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Lube, lube, and more lube
  • Start slow and go slow
  • Relax as much as possible
  • Don’t give up

As with any booty play, lubricant is essential. Don’t try to insert a butt plug without lube, it will not be a pleasant experience! Lube is your friend and you should apply ample amounts, ideally special anal lube, which is thicker and longer-lasting than ordinary lube. And when we say ample, we really mean use loads.

Once lubed up, relax, go slowly and only choose toys that give you pleasure when they are inserted – you want to savour sensation. A little discomfort is normal, but pain is always a sign to back off. We want you to have a great first backdoor play experience, so please take this advice seriously. You will know when you are ready for larger toys – experiment and your body will tell you!

Don’t surrender at the first sign of discomfort — tweak your technique somewhat, remain patient and curious, and expect sudden amazing pleasure!

Which butt plug is right for me?

Whether you are new to anal play or an experienced bon vivant, you will find a butt plug that guarantees comfort and thrilling sensation. Men typically prefer longer or specially-shaped butt plugs that stimulate the prostate, while women mostly enjoy anal stimulation and the pressure a plug puts on the vaginal wall, meaning a shorter plug can work just great.

Butt plugs come in vibrating and non-vibrating versions and in many different materials, including silicone, glass and metal. You can choose from a variety of shapes and sizes – work your way up in size as you become more comfortable.

Butt plugs are also a great way to prime yourself for anal sex with your partner (or for bigger toys!). During this “anal training” your booty gradually gets accustomed to larger plugs, until you’re ready for anal sex with your partner. A butt plug kit is often a good and easy option if you want to progress through different sizes.

To make it easier for you to decide, we provide you with an overview of the most popular types of butt plugs – find your favourite(s) and have fun!
