Butt Plugs for Beginners Butt plugs are easily one of my favourite types of toy and my most reviewed, so they are of course what I get asked about most often. What Are Butt Plugs? For those unaware, a butt plug is a special type of sex toy that can be placed inside the anus for sexual pleasure.
As a way to help dilate the muscles before or in preparation for anal sex. During masturbation or sex, for increased pleasure and a heightened orgasm. For extended wear while around the house or in public, for sexual pleasure and maintaining that kinky feeling. Furthermore, on the point of orgasm the body with naturally tense and release around the plug, which will enhance climax greatly.
Aside from this, butt plugs are also just another great way to sexually express yourself, and fulfil any kinky desires you may have. Butt plugs come in many different shapes and sizes, and it can often be tempting to buy that really cute or cool looking one you saw online sometime.
One of the biggest mistakes people make however, is buying too large of a plug for their first time. You may think you can handle something larger straight off, but you should always start with a smaller plug. Even experienced users will need to start by using a smaller plug in a play session before transferring to a larger one. If you use too large a size without warming up first it could result in scratching, tearing or damage to the tissues of the anal canal, which may cause scaring and loss of enjoyment.
Make sure your plug is smooth and has a tapered tip to make insertion easier. It should have a large round flared base, or a T-bar base. I often see plugs with flimsy or too small bases, this is not ok! Finally, make sure you get a safe material. A lot of plugs are made with slime or jelly type materials, but these are porous, meaning you cannot clean the bacteria off them completely, making them potentially harmful.
Make sure to only buy from reputable retailers, and no eBay or Amazon. My Favourite Stores page features a bunch of good retailers that you can feel safe to buy butt plugs from. For cheaper options I would recommend a site like Lovehoney who have a huge range, although remember to follow my previous rules since they also stock some not-so-great ones. For pricier but higher quality types check out Tantus for silicone, Crystal Delights for glass, and Njoy for metal.
Make sure you get a lubricant that works with whatever material your chosen butt plug is. For instance a silicone plug cannot be paired with silicone based lubricant. My favourite lubricant for anal is Sliquid Sassy , which is water based and can be used with any type of plug. The more relaxed and comfortable you are, the easier you will find it.
It may also help to have an orgasm prior. Once ready, apply an adequate amount of lubricant. Too much lube is always better than not enough. If you have too much then it will just drip off make sure to have plenty of tissues on hand! Next, get yourself in a comfortable position. I personally get down on all fours doggy style , but other good positions are on your back with your butt raised on a pillow, or squatting.
Once inside it may feel pretty weird, and you may feel a need to remove it. As long as there is no pain then it is just your body adjusting, and you should lay down for as long as you need to and try to relax. If there is any pain, remove the plug immediately. Once you feel okay, you are ready to do whatever it is you wish! Removal is similar story. Stay relaxed, and take it out slowly. You can also push with your muscles, in a similar way to taking a poop.
If there is any pain, bleeding or discomfort that lasts longer than a few minutes upon removal, then seek medical help immediately. You should never ever share plugs or any sex toys between persons, or between orifices vagina, anus, mouth. If you plan on doing this, you must sterelize the toy first, such as by boiling it, and this can only be done on silicone, glass and metal toys. Extended Use While it may sound strange, a lot of people enjoy anal plugs for their extended wear. You can essentially wear a plug where ever you want, around the house or even out in public if seeing friends or just doing the groceries.
Even without any feelings of pleasure, it lets you feel kinky, similar to how you may not wear underwear under a skirt to let yourself feel naughty. You should avoid wearing plugs for more than hours at a time, even when comfortable, and remove to reapply lube every hour or so.
For extended wear, flat or T-bar bases are best. Metal toys are great because of their weight, but if you plan to sit down a lot then the base can be uncomfortable. Furthermore, the larger the base or plug the more obtrusive it may feel.
Other Anal Toys Once you have gotten use to your small, starter plug, you are ready to move onto other types of anal play, or bigger plugs! Even though you can now take a slightly larger toy though, still use your smaller toy to help yourself warm up, you should always work your way up with sizes in order to avoid injury. So, what else is there? Good vibrating butt plugs generally come in silicone and use a bullet vibe add-on to let them vibrate.
Fetish Plugs generally involve tails, such as cat, bunny or horse type tails coming out from the base, while Princess Plugs have a jewel on the base. The main difference between these and plugs is the length, since anal beads can be long enough to move past your rectum and into your colon. Look for small, thin and tapered dildos to start off with.
Ensure the handle is not flimsy with these and be sure to not let it go, these are not for extended wear. Lovehoney has a good range of them.
