Butt plug are used by many men and women to enhance orgasms during sex or masturbation. Many also enjoy the feeling they provide just walking around or relaxing at home. They are available in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, colours and materials. They also come in both vibrating and non-vibrating models.
Anal toys and particularly butt plugs are more popular than ever before, and are in fact becoming one of our most popular sex toys here at The Hot Spot. Traditionally enjoyed by the the gay community and fetish seekers, butt plugs are becoming more mainstream. They have quite a vast array of uses as anal sex toys. If you have a prostate, a butt plug can stimulate your male g-spot. If you have a vagina a but plug can create a pleasurable sensation on the back wall of the vagina. Butt plugs are also very commonly used as anal training devices, which temporarily stretch the anus and anal canal so that larger things can be inserted more pleasurably. Whatever you reason for diving into the wonderful world of but plug play, there are few things you should know about these little (and large!) products for safety, comfort and the anal experience.
Butt plugs, as the name suggest do exactly what you would imagine .... they are a plug up your butt! A butt plug's main purpose is to make the wearer feel great. Your ass or anus can be a wonderful source of pleasure. People often use butt plugs for anal sex preparation or training. Unlike the vagina, the rectum doesn't produce its own lubrication. That is why it's very important to prepare your but plug play with lots of lube and smaller objects, like fingers and butt plugs, prior to anal sex with a penis and or a strap-on sex toy.
Butt plugs are cleverly shaped for their particular purpose. Butt plugs come in many different shapes and sizes and generally have narrow tips that get progressively wider toward the middle and then narrow again, down to a slim and sleek neck at the base. This is so that your anus and rectum can sit comfortably with them inserted. Now, the rectum can act like a vacuum and suck objects inside, which is why but plugs are generally made with a tapered and flared bottom. Often with a pull cord, or a ring to prevent plugs from getting lost inside you!
It's important to check that your toy is made from body safe materials. Anything that's silicone, glass (Pyrex), or stainless steel is safe. We suggest that beginners to butt plugs and anal play select silicone over glass or steel, as silicone is very soft and and is easier to insert into the anus. All of these materials are nonporous, which makes them a breeze to cleaned after use. The main advise we give to butt plug beginners is to start small! In fact, you should pick one that looks ridiculously small and go with that for the first time.
Advanced users wear butt plugs in public. Butt plugs are also commonly used with BDSM groups as part of dominance and submission (D/S) play. Butt plugs are also a great way to experience double penetration if you have a vagina. You can wear a butt plug during vaginal sex with a penis or dildo. Many women testify that the best sex they have had is vaginal sex, with a butt plug, while simultaneously stimulating the clit with their fingers or a vibrator. In addition to that many people admit that they love receiving oral while they have a butt plug in. Butt plugs are also a great masturbation companion. Solo sex can be a lovely way to explore anal play. At the end of the day, anal pleasure with a butt plug is something everybody can enjoy.
As we mentioned earlier, the anus does not produce its own natural lubricate. If you use a butt plug with multiple partners, always practice safe sex by putting a condom on it and using a non-oil-based lube before each use. Oil-based lubricants, including the popular options like coconut oil, break down latex, while water based lube and silicone based lubricants don't. Silicone lubricants are great for anal play, as they're are ultra slippery and last longer than water-based varieties. However, be careful, silicone breaks down silicone. If you're using a silicone toy, grab a water-based lube. Glass or stainless steel butt plugs work well with any lubricant.
