What is a Butt Plug and How To Use Them.

Posted by Gary Idweb on

Butt plugs are sex toys that are inserted into the anus. They typically have a narrow tip that gradually widens before narrowing again towards the base, which is flared to prevent the toy from going too deep inside.


Unlike dildos, butt plugs are meant to stay in place during sexual activity. They can be used to stimulate the anus in preparation for anal sex, as the tapered tip is close to the g-spot in females and the prostate gland in males. Butt plugs are popular for several reasons. The anus is very sensitive with many nerve endings, so stimulating it can be pleasurable. Those with prostates enjoy butt plugs because they can stimulate the gland and potentially lead to a prostate orgasm, which feels good even if one doesn't occur. Some butt plugs are designed specifically to reach the prostate.


People with vaginas also like using butt plugs, as wearing one during vaginal penetration can mimic the feeling of double penetration. Butt plugs are also used by those who enjoy anal sex to warm up and stretch the anus beforehand. Additionally, they can be used for solo masturbation to enhance the experience. Butt plugs may also feature in dominance and submission sexual play. In summary, butt plugs allow for anal stimulation and pleasure in a variety of sexual contexts.


How to Safely Use a Butt Plug

When trying anal toys, always pick one with a wide base or handle. The anus can suck objects in, so a base or handle prevents the toy from getting lost inside. A large ring or pull cord also works to keep the toy safe.


Since the anus does not lubricate itself like the vagina does, be sure to use lots of lube. The anus and rectum are sensitive areas. Lubricant helps avoid tears or soreness, and usually makes anal play feel better.

If using a silicone toy, use a water-based lubricant. Silicone lube can cause silicone toys to break down more quickly.


How To Play With a Butt Plug

Take it slow when playing with a butt plug. Anal play feels better when you're relaxed. If you're tense, you could tear something. Pay attention to any discomfort. Stop or slow down if something hurts or feels off. Before inserting the plug, warm up with something smaller like a finger.

Wear a disposable glove if you want to avoid spreading bacteria or getting messy. Lube up your finger and gently rub the anus before sliding it in. Once one or two fingers fit comfortably, you're ready for the butt plug. Try different positions to find the most comfortable way to insert the plug based on your body.

Everyone is built differently. Some use numbing creams to reduce discomfort during anal play. However, this prevents you from feeling if your body wants you to stop, which is unsafe. For your safety, avoid numbing creams with a butt plug.


Maintaining and Sanitizing

The majority of silicone sex toys that do not contain motors can be placed in the dishwasher to eliminate bacteria. Boiling glass, silicone, and stainless steel adult toys will also sterilize them. It's important to sterilize a toy before using it with a partner. Even for solo use, routinely disinfecting an adult toy keeps things hygienic and promotes wellness.
