Butt Plugs – A Guide

Bottom of a model

Butt plugs are a great way for beginners to experience anal sex gradually and gently. Depending on the model, butt plugs can be used alone for unique stimulation, during intercourse or masturbation. Finally, check the quality of the product. These anal toys are conical shaped, starting small but gradually widening in size, allowing you to enjoy more and more girth as you get more comfortable. Designed specifically for anal play, a butt plug with gently stretch the anus and stimulate the sensitive nerve endings for out-of-this-world pleasure.

With over a third of Westerners having tried it, anal play is a kink that is becoming increasingly popular in the bedroom. When used correctly provide sensations that can turn a standard orgasm into an intense experience unlike anything else!

Choosing Your Plug

The butt plug should be smooth and not have any sharp surfaces that could scratch the delicate lining of the anal canal. Some are made from glass; I recommend avoiding these are there’s a chance of the wood splintering in the anus. Softer materials such as silicone and rubber make for great toys as they are soft yet firm enough to allow easy insertion. Once inserted, they can be left in the rectum during intercourse, or can be removed with varying speeds to help achieve orgasm.

When choosing the right plug, there are a few things to keep in mind. Beginners will want to start with a small and flexible toy, such as the Classic Anal Plug – Small (£ 14.99, kinky.co.uk). This kinky toy is made from latex free filled plastisol vinyl rubber. Measuring 3.5” in length and with a tapered end, this small, comfortable butt plug is safe and easy to use. It smoothly graduates from 0.1” – 1” in width to the base, so you can easily experiment with girth and depth. When you’re ready to take on something bigger; the Classic Anal Plug also comes in a medium and large size.

Before buying, make sure the butt plug has a firm base or handle. A sturdy base ensures that the toy remains partly outside the body at all times and can be easily removed later.

Hygiene is Important

Sex can be messy, and even more-so when it comes to anal sex. In fact, according to a recent survey it’s the mess that puts most off from trying it. There are simply steps to take which will ensure that your experience is clean, safe and fun. Before any anal play; make sure you use the toilet at least 30 minutes in advance and wash the area around the anus thoroughly. Generally, faeces is not stored where a penis, tongue or sex toy can reach. However, for those wanting to be squeaky clean, using an enema or douche will help release any build up. These are affordable and easy to use – we recommend Anal Douche (£11.99 – kinky.co.uk) and the Clean Stream Flex Tip Cleansing Enema Bulb (£14.99 – kinky.co.uk). This step is not needed, and is more of a personal preference than a hygiene essential.

As with all toys, wash your beads thoroughly and store them after use. If you and your partner decide to share toys during a kinky session; wash between uses. This reduces the risk of infections and other nasty surprises.

Don’t Forget the Lube

Since the anus does not lubricate itself, lube will make the experience more comfortable and pleasurable. There are plenty of anal lubes available which have a greater viscosity than the standard water based versions – Anal Joy Lovin Lubricant (£10.00 – kinky.co.uk) is an affordable and long lasting anal lube. Some lubes, such as Doc Johnson Relax Anal Relaxer (£15.99 – kinky.co.uk), are made with a formula that delicately warms and relaxes anal muscles. But lubes and creams that numb the anus should be avoided – pain is a sign that something isn’t right and without these signs you could cause some serious damage. If you feel any pain, stop what you’re doing, relax, and try it again. Thoroughly lubricate yourself and your anal beads in the lube of your choice before insertion.

Taking It Up A Notch

When you’re ready to take your anal play to the next level, there are plenty of butt plugs to play with. The TitanMan Trainer 1 (£13.99, kinky.co.uk) was designed for those looking for that that ‘filled up’ feeling. The base is sturdy and easy to grasp, even when lubed up, so you can be sure your plug will stay where you want it. With a thick shaft, there’s a lot to play with! Want to try something different? The Prisms Kundalini Thrusting Wand (£19.99, kinky.co.uk) is a sleek and luxurious toy made of glass, which can be heated up with warm water, or cooled down with a little ice. It’s easy to clean, fun to use, and a great buy for those who want to experiment with different temperatures and textures.
