Guide to Butt Plugs

Every great master has some kind of tool kit or belt. Think Batman or a master plumber. Okay, those are two very different examples, but they do share a common attribute: both have some awesome tools and really know how to use them! And if you’re looking to be a superhero lover, you need to put together your own pleasure chest of essential devices.

So, what could go in your sexy tool belt. A great vibrator? Definitely. Your favourite lube? A must have. Safer sex supplies? Yes! A perfectly-shaped dildo? That’d be great! But what else? Well, if you are looking to move beyond just penis and vagina types of sex, then finding the perfect butt plug would be an excellent addition to your gear!


What are butt plugs?

Anal sex has become increasingly popular and the different ways we play with our bums has increased exponentially. This is fantastic news because anal pleasure and fun is one of the most exciting forms of sex there is!

People are finding all kinds of ways to experience the tremendous pleasure potential that is hidden in our backdoors, including a wide variety of toys! But one thing that we’ll always come back to is the tremendous sensation of being filled and having something sexy and solid in our asses. And for that sensation you can’t go wrong with a selection of fantastic butt plugs!

Butt plugs might seem like a really basic sex toy - because they are! They might be one of the easiest and most satisfying toys around. And they're pretty damn classic as well. Butt plugs are similar to dildos in that they are inserted in the bum, but they are different because butt plugs are meant to stay inside you during other sexual (and non-sexual) activities. Butt plugs come in all different sizes, shapes and textures for lots of different feelings and fun. Their tapered shape with a slim base ensure they stay inside the anus during all kinds of different anal play.


Why do people use butt plugs?

Butt plugs are a great addition to all kinds of sexual activity - and both men and women can definitely enjoy them! Slipping in a butt plug before enjoying oral sex or even making love can heighten the sensations associated with those activities to new heights! If a woman is using a butt plug, she’ll get the dual pleasure of double penetration. And a man can enjoy intense anal and prostate stimulation while he is also enjoying other pleasures.


How can butt plugs be used?

As with other types of anal play, the key to using butt plugs is using lots and lots of lube. As the toy is meant to stay in place, it is key to get it into the anus in the most comfortable way possible. Take plenty of time to warm the anus with sexual energy before trying to insert the butt plug. This is particularly true of the larger butt plugs that are available. Ease the toy into the anus until it sits comfortably inside. If you are planning on using the toy for an extended period of time, ensure you occasionally add some extra lube to the base of the toy. It is easy, as we move from position to position, that the outer bits of lube get wiped away, which can make the butt plug become uncomfortable to keep using and possibly painful when being removed.


What size butt plug is right for me?

If you’re new to anal pleasure, start off small. Choose a butt plug that is around the same size as one of your fingers. The only thing you need to ensure it has is some sort of flare so that it will stay inside you. Over time, as you become more experienced and come to love your butt plugs (who wouldn’t!), you can gradually work up to bigger and bigger plugs - to whatever size satisfies you!


What are butt plugs made from?

Butt plugs are made from a number of different exciting materials that can offer many different thrills and sensations. Many butt plugs, particularly those for beginners, are made of silicone, jelly and PVC. These are nice and flexible and pliable and great for those just getting used to the sensations. When you become more experienced, you can try some of the more advanced toys that are made of steel, glass and wood.
