What is a Butt Plug?
Unlike dildos, which are designed to slide in and out, butt plugs are shaped to be inserted and left in place. The wide bulb slides past the internal anal muscle, while your body holds onto the neck.
What does a Butt Plug do?
Flared based sex toys like butt plugs create a sensation of fullness or pressure, without the back and forth motion that dildos offer. Not only that but when the pelvic muscles contract during orgasm, a butt plug can intensify the sensation by giving your body something to squeeze against.
What’s the right butt plug for me?
No matter how wide or flexible you think you are down there, it is best to start small. You can purchase an anal training kit with a range of sizes that will help you work up to a larger gauge or just opt for the smallest plug you can find.
How do I insert a butt plug?
Go slow and steady. Don’t push yourself too far or speed your way through the process – anal play isn’t a race! The rectum is much more sensitive than your vaginal canal and can easily tear or become irritated, so taking your time is imperative. Begin outside the anus and adjust your body to the new sensations. Once you feel comfortable and relaxed, gently insert the plug in. It is suggested to not shove it perpendicularly into your body, but rather point the tip towards your stomach, slowly pushing the tip further in using your finger. But again, remain mindful of the stimulation. Even the slightest bit of anxiety can aggravate the lining of the rectum.
How should I clean my new toy?
Wash your butt plug with hot water and soap immediately after use and let it air-dry. Never share anal toys given the risk of transmitting infections, viruses, or bacteria.
You can disinfect your toy if it is made from non-porous materials like stainless steel or silicone and doesn’t have a motor. Simply boil some water and leave your toy in the water for about ten minutes.
