How and Why to Use a Butt Plug

Posted by Mikayla to Anal Sex

Do your rectal muscles contract when you hear the word "butt plug"? Does the thought, "nothing is going UP THERE" cross your mind immediately? Well, never fear! This article is going to talk about how to safely use a butt plug as well as all the positive and fun things that you can use a butt plug for. By the end of it you will be ready, willing and even excited to try out an anal plug! Read on for all the answers to How and Why to Use a Butt Plug!

Anal Plugs - aka Butt Plugs - are specially designed devices of various materials that you insert into your rectum (ass). There are many varieties of butt plugs - beginner, advanced, expandable, metal, glass, silicone, vibrating - and there are many reasons to use one as well.

THE 2 BASIC RULES OF ANAL PLAY

* USE TOYS MADE FOR ANAL PLAY
The first thing to remember about putting ANYTHING up your butt is that you CAN lose it up your rectal canal. Yes, I said that right. Your rectal canal is quite long and there are basically 2 sphincters (1 external, and one internal). If you place an object in and it goes past the second sphincter, it may travel up your anal canal and you will not be able to retrieve it without medical assistance. This is why you should always use toys made specifically for anal.These toys have a special, flared bottom or retrieval mechanism that will ensure you do not lose your toy up where the sun doesn't shine! So, play safe and there will be NO worries.

* NEVER GO FROM ANAL TO VAGINAL
We are talking about Butt Plugs here, so typically you would not put one in your vagina. However, just to be safe, I am going to reiterate: once it has been in your butt it does NOT go in your "V"! As with all toys, you will want to clean your butt plugs. Always clean your anal toys very thoroughly with hot, soapy water to avoid bacteria build-up!

5 BEGINNER'S BUTT PLUG TIPS

1. SIZE MATTERS
If you are an anal newbie the first thing you need to remember is that size matters! You never want to start with the biggest plug you can find. Instead, you want to go with a thin and tapered toy so you can become comfortable with the toy. There are a ton of beginner's plugs to choose from. Some sets even have a variety of sizes so you can move up as you feel comfortable.

2. LUBE IT UP
The anal canal is not self lubricating (like the vagina) so you have to always make sure you are using lube. Not just a dab of lube, I mean L U B E! Don't be shy! You want a slippery slope to play on, so make sure you put it on your toy AND on your entrance. Anal lubes are usually thicker and longer-lasting for anal play. Silicone lubes would be the lube of choice, but if you have a silicone plug, do NOT use a silicone lube. Also, reapply when needed! If you feel a drag, then add more lube!

3. SLOW AND STEADY
This is an "exit" not typically an "entrance" so you need to give your body time to adjust. You will want to push a little at a time and PUSH OUT (like you are having a bowel movement) so that your muscles relax and expand to accept the toy. If you relax, go slowly, use lube and allow your muscles to expand, it will feel very pleasurable to you! Never push the toy fast just to "get it over with" as this can cause damage!

4. PAIN / PLEASURE
Anal play should NEVER have pain. Now, do not confuse pressure with pain. You are putting a plug where previously nothing has ever gone, so especially your first times you will feel pressure! This is NORMAL! What is NOT normal is pain or bleeding. If you are bleeding during or after your play you are not using enough lube! This indicates you have torn your rectal lining a bit. This is common with first time anal players, but, it need not happen if you are careful! If it does happen, make sure you take time to heal before you try again. If you feel pressure it is OK to continue, as long as you are going slowly and not pushing too fast. Once you get the plug all the way into your rectum, you should feel pleasure.

5. BE CHOOSY
You need to choose a plug that is right for you. Once you have started to become comfortable with anal play, you can find a toy that fits your needs better. Some plugs are thicker and others thinner but longer. Metal is a fun choice for some women who want to wear the plug longer. Vibrating plugs can be very stimulating AND fun during Double Penetration (when you have a toy or penis in each entrance - anal and vaginal - simultaneously). Some plugs even have animal tails for extra sassy fun or choose something with decorative jewels to give your partner a pretty surprise when he views your backside. Whatever you choose always follow the proper rules for insertion and cleanliness to ensure each play time is fun and safe!

REASONS TO USE A BUTT PLUG

* PREPARING FOR PLAY
If you are asking WHY you should use a butt plug the answer is simple: They are fun! Butt plugs can be used to prepare for more intensive anal play. If you and your partner are considering anal sex, for instance, then wearing a plug before anal play can substantially make that experience more pleasant! Your anal muscles will already be relaxed and stretched from the plug, so when your partner removes the plug and enters you, you will accept him or her more easily.

* HEIGHTENED ORGASMIC EXPERIENCE
It is possible to have an anal orgasm! Also, it is common for women to have a more intense clitoral or vaginal orgasm when they are employing anal play as well. So, if you have a plug in and you are playing with your partner (or a vibrator) your orgasms can be extremely intense! Think about if your partner has ever stuck his finger up there during oral sex - how hard did you orgasm? Well, imagine that times 10! Yup! Anal play is fun and butt plugs are a great way to provide this.

* DOUBLE THE PLEASURE
Double penetration can be extremely satisfying for both you and your partner. Whether alone with a dual dildo, or with another to satisfy you, the feeling of fullness is delectable! Men love the extra tight feeling when you have something in your rectum while they are having vaginal sex with you. Remember, there is only a thin lining between your vaginal and rectal canal, so if you have a plug inside your anal canal he will feel it in your vagina! Many women report the "tightness"of this makes them orgasm more quickly and intensely. For extra fun, try a vibrating plug! Then both you and he will experience the vibrations!

Not a beginner to anal play. I prefer a med sized anal toy that has a very deep ridge like the pink pop plug shown with the article. They are not the slimmest but, slowly getting use to the size, once it's seated you don't have the slippage frustration that was spoken of (experienced it myself when a beginner). As long as you follow the slow and clean rules, you'll be suprised what you end up liking... Try the vibrating or warming and cooling metal or glass. :)

After years of anal experience, I can say I'm a very pleased size queen! Butt plugs are great, if you like bigger, then you can also try a numerous amount of different sized dildos for "back there".

James: My partner and I like doggy style with me bending over the bed since having my feet on the floor rather than being on my knees gives me more control. And we like the ‘happy baby’ yoga pose with him standing and me on the edge of the bed. Sometimes he puts my legs up against his chest, too. We also like to play with just the plug and a vibrator because he loves to watch me cum for him that way.

I recently bought doc Johnson booty bling large. Possibly a little big for first time but it makes me feel nice and full. I bought it at lunch break and have worn it the last 2 days at work!

I have always loved to have a plug in. I have been married over 20 years and have always been afraid to break the subject with my wife. For the first time this past weekend we finally, minimally, broucher subject when I directed her hand further down and around to my anus. She asked if there was something I would like to tell her and I said I liked to have some butt play. That was it. So now how do proceed?

anal play should be slow relaxing and very pleasurable, if done gently and correctly it is one of the most amazing feelings you can have and the orgasms are very powerful and quite exhilarating. once you are comfortable and relaxed enough, there bis nothing like the feeling of a penis being gently thrust in and out of your anus.

Me and my wife have not done full anal. I have played around back there but it is new for us so we are taking it slow. We were just talking about starting out with a small toy to work up to full anal sex.

When done the right way (slow and steady wins the race, lots of lube, and very aroused) it can be insanely good. Had several bad experiences with it with bad exes, so I bought myself a set of small plugs and going to ease back into it. I trust my current bf to be slow and gentle enough, so we're excited about trying it.

I've had a few things up my butt in my day (sometimes at the cost of my dignity during unusual situations). I absolutely LOVE butt plugs. Being fitted with a comfortable one just the right size and shape is so delish, that snug feeling of fullness down there is a unique combination of both tranquil and sexual. I agree being plugged during sex can give intense orgasms, but sometimes the plug can feel like a bit of a distraction -- when I want that hole filled during sex, well, that's what hubby is for, and he's MORE than happy to oblige. My main purpose for plugs is wearing them under my clothes, being "accessorized" as I put it. I will flash it occasionally, being real careful when and where I do it. If you come from a naive and goody-goody upbringing like me, your self-perception is forever changed after you buy your first plug. It's like declaring "Yes, I finally admit it; I'm anally erotic." It's that naughty feeling that I'm after. Let me explain. For certain reasons, I've developed what you might call a shame and embarrassment fetish. My main way of experiencing it is through nudity, with its feeling of vulnerability and exposure. Another big way is anal play of all sorts. I've discussed being a plugger with a few people, knowing damned well one or two of them will gossip about it to everyone else. So my "dirty little secret" isn't much of a secret! But I'm turned on by so many people secretly knowing it. And visualizing it when they see me. It's that shame aspect that is so kinky and erotic to me. Any other women feel this way? A few final recommendations. No butt plug collection is complete without a variety of hard and soft materials -- glass, metal, gel, etc. And everyone needs at least one tail plug: fox tail, bunny tail, piggy tail, etc., pick one that matches your personality. Every anally erotic person needs at least one anal tool with multiple good-sized beads or ridges; making the sphincter gently dilate and contract is bliss (I always savor that first moment when hubby's penis tip dilates my hole, and I always playfully say "plop" when it softly snaps shut as he pulls it out). And a nice big ball gag pairs up so perfectly with plugs--being "plugged at both ends" as I put it. Mmmmph!! Mmmph! (that's me trying to say goodbye through the gag) :-)

I’m a middle aged man and I’ve only begun my anal experience. I’ve given anal many times but never played with own very much. Over the course of the last year I’ve discovered the extra pleasures thatvanal can bring to my own orgasms. I guess I was repressed due to feelings of shame and embarrassment. There’s the stigma of any man that puts anything up there is gay. It’s only recently that I’ve come to understand that a sex act is not gay, only the attraction to the same sex is. I’m not attracted to same sex so any anal play for me is solo or possibly with my wife. I started out my anal journey by getting a prostate massager that was just to big for me. My anus is really tight! So I started with the 4 piece butt plug set like that shown. I was able to get to the second smallest size fairly comfortably and quickly. I found wearing them for longer periods to be uncomfortable though as that wide circle base cut into my bum cheeks. So I ordered Doc Johnson Naughty 2 plug in medium and also a smaller vibrating plug, both of which are about 1” in diameter. The Naughty 2 was much more comfortable for longer wear due to its T-bar handle. The downside is it’s silicon and the required water based lube dries out. So I ordered a NJOY small metal plug so I could use silicon lube. This plug is very nice and I actually was able to wear it for 20 hours straight over this past weekend. Yesterday I graduated to the 2nd biggest plug in the training kit. It’s a literal stretch to get it in but once in it is very comfortable. I’m not too active which again is due to that wide base cutting in so I’ve ordered the NJOY medium plug. I was finally able to get that bigger prostate massager in me a couple weekends ago OMG. It was awesome. I was getting full body shudders and spasms. My penis was leaking precum like crazy and when I finally masterbated it was huge! A top 5 for sure! It’s quite a rush to wear a plug out of the home. Nobody knows my little secret. My next dare is to wear to work for a day! I’m not planning to get to giant 3” plugs like some people do. I just like feeling of being on the edge of being turned on while wearing. When I do some keigals I can get it to rub against my prostate and it feels so good. Now my wife is curious with all my fun. and wants to start plugging too. Have fun fellow pluggers!

My wife started wanting anal sex the first time was no good wasn't able to get inside of her. So she look into it and found out that a butt plug may help opening her up easier for me to enter her. She bought a training kit and started training she worked through the small one quickly the next one is were things started to get interesting. She would wear it for a hour then we would go at it. One day she told me she was wearing it longer almost a whole day and really enjoyed the feel of it inside her. Then she blow my mind and said I should try one and wear it when we make love she read that it increases pleasure. I took awhile to think about it Finally giving in to her I can safely say we both are more lik

My boyfriend is very very large nearly 9”. I have several buttplugs in my collection. I wear a buttplug as part of my preparation for anal sex. It’s also fun to show off to my BF. It’s a major turn on for me. After sex my BF replies me so that his cum stays inside and won’t leak out. Sometimes I wear a buttplug because I enjoy having a naughty little secret. Other times I wear a buttplug because it relaxes me and keeps me calm.

A girl friend of mine tried to put her 6 inch vibrator in my butt one night and it wouldn't go in because i HAD a very tight butt hole but it got me curious and over the last 10 years i have progressed from not being able to take something about 3 quarters of an inch in diameter to taking a dildo which is lightly bigger than 2 and a half inches or 67 millimeters if you are into metric. Pre cum dribbles out continually when i am playing and i am sure i have had anal orgasms, it is the best feeling ever. Most nights when i first get in shower i slip in a 1 and a half inch plug with a T base which when lubed up properly slips in reasonably easy and leave it in until just before i get out which is usually about 20 minutes, the longest i have had it in through the day is about 5 hours, i eventually took it out because i couldn't concentrate on anything but the great sensation in my butt. I would recommend clean and well lubed anal play to anyone, my next step will be to share it with a girl friend.

I have quite the collection. I go through at least 5 different plug changes a day. I thankfully have a job where I can pretty much do as I please so when I feel the urge for a different plug I simply change it. I have silicone and steel plugs. I also sleep with my favorite inserted a good portion of the night. My favorite one is actually a vibrating plug called Pearl Charm Rimming Plug that stopped vibrating some time ago but It makes the perfect butt plug and fits my bum perfectly. I love anything anal.

My first husband & I had a great tremendous sex. Since we were both new to everything except the missionary position when we seen or heard of something we would give it a try & see if we liked it or not. We had heard of anal sex but didn't really know how to or anything else. We tried anal sex & found that it didn't go very good. But we tried again but this time we used lots of lube cause the first time it was very hard to achieve what we wanted. We had found the first time that it was fantastic even if it didn't go well. From there onward we tried different positions & with toys. The best we found was & yes loads of lube everytime was when I was bent over the side or end of the bed. We used a pillow to give my butt a higher position than the rest of me. Also lots of foreplay with talking sexually so we both were very excited. He would put a vibrator in my vaginal & using his dick he would play with my butt hole. When we got so excited we could hardly stand it he would put his dick inside of me. He could feel the vibrate in my Bali alarm & I could feel him in my anal opening. Sometimes to add more excitement he would play with my "G spot & I would play with my boobs. We always started very slowly with lots of foreplay. It was a feeling that was so great & we always said that this was a complete fillful & a true sense of belonging as one.
