How and Why to Use a Butt Plug
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 MattersIf 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 UpThe 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!
