Everything You Need to Know About Butt Plugs

Let’s break some myths right here. You can have fun with a butt plug and experience sensations you’ve never felt before, and it one hundred per cent doesn’t matter if… • You’re straight, gay, anything in between, or at either end of that wonderful sliding scale of sexual orientation. • You’re male, female, non-binary, or wherever you identify on the gender spectrum. • Whatever your genitals look like, however they’re shaped, or however they operate. Our genitals are as unique to us as our fingerprints, and lucky for you, your butt plug doesn’t care in the slightest.

Your butt plug is like the Swiss Army Knife of sex toys—yet nowhere near as dangerous if you use it correctly. Actually, all sex toys are the Swiss Army Knife of sex toys if you’re creative enough, and we think when it comes to the bedroom (or the kitchen table, a bench in the park, or wherever the moment takes you), there should be no limit to creativity. Butt plugs come in all shapes and sizes. Our range covers everything anyone could need from beginner to expert, in all kinds of materials, sizes, and shapes. Do you want a butt plug tail? We’ve got it. If you want a hollow or tunnel butt plug, we’ve got those too. From delicate beginner toys to the biggest butt plug of the bunch—we’ve got whatever you need. All you have to do is pick which one is right for you.


That’s right. Pleasure. And there are plenty of different ways to get it. Many of the nerves inside your butt respond far better to pressure than massage, and that’s where your butt plug can really hit the mark. There’s a unique sensation of fullness provided by inserting a butt plug, especially with something good and solid. It can make all the difference when masturbating, or during vaginal or oral sex for either partner. Wearing a butt plug during mundane daily activities can equally be a huge turn on for you and your partner. Just thinking about each other carrying out the most boring activities, yet with a plug in place, could have you both racing home to burn off those chemicals your brain just whipped into a frenzy. Is there such a thing as an anal orgasm? Oh yes. Oh, oh, oh, yes. Yes. YES! There are masses of nerves and sensitive spots in your butt, and its opening has the highest concentration of nerve endings throughout the canal. That’s why even the smallest plugs can provide masses of wonderful sensations. It’s up to you to learn what gives you the most pleasure, but however you do it, you can reach orgasm solely through playing with your backside. For men, it’s a lot to do with stimulating the prostate, which produces an orgasm with a high level of intensity. For women, it’s incredible for stimulating your most sensitive parts from angles you’re not used to, and also creating a tighter fit for vaginal adventures. Your butt plug can hit the internal parts of your clitoris and your G-spot in ways you never imagined.

Play Safe

Just as important as the plug itself, lube is your best friend with any anal play. Unlike a vagina, penis, or your mouth, your butt doesn’t lubricate itself. One of the golden rules of ass-play is, you can never have too much lube. Which lube you use is another area you need to research carefully. Silicone-based lubes are ideal, as they’ll hang around longer, they won’t wash out easily if your playing in the shower or the bath—but be warned—they aren’t compatible with your silicone toys. Silicone breaks down silicone, and for most newcomers, silicone makes for an ideal beginner butt plug. Make sure you use the best lube for the material as its perfect partner. Silicone plugs offer a little give, play and movement, and they’re easy to clean (as it’s non-porous). But remember, you need to use a water-based lube with your silicone toys. Another note for premium lube choice is that some lubes will break down some barrier methods—typically oil-based options. So unless you’re having unprotected sex, perhaps oil-based lubes aren’t your best choice. Check out our lubes and cleaners. There are plenty to choose from and masses of information available about each type and their ideal uses. We’ll say it one more time just to make sure—you can never have too much lube. Never.

P-spot, G-spot, A-spot or whatnot?

Everyone has a range of pleasure points to access during butt play. Heading up the anus, butt plugs are one of the most common ways to access the prostate, often called the male G-spot or P-spot. For women, it’s a great way to access their G-spot from a different angle, and here’s one you might not have heard about: the A-spot. Your A-spot, ladies, is your anterior fornix erogenous zone. Yeah, let’s stick with A-spot, or we’ll be here all day. It’s a pleasure point deep in the vagina, positioned between the cervix and the bladder. It’s sometimes referred to as the female prostate because that’s just about where it sits in a male body.


Beginners to anal play could look at some of the butt plugs available and clench up just at the thought of them. And rightly so. You shouldn’t go diving in at the deep end—your anal sphincter is a muscle like any other, and you need to train it for the job, to perform to its best for you. That means starting small and slow. You’re going to need to relax that muscle, and that means becoming comfortable with what you’re doing. Practice makes perfect, so go easy, there’s no rush, and you can build up as you begin to feel more comfortable with everything you’re doing. What you need to remember is that it should never hurt. Never. If it does, you’re doing it wrong. Take it easy, practice, and don’t push it (well, do, but not like that). Oh, and did we mention just how important lube is?

How to insert a butt plug

Slow and steady. As we said, if you’re new to anal play, then start small and slow, and work your way up to what’s comfortable, and what you find you really like. Lube your butt plug and your butt before teasing yourself (or your partner) to get used to the sensation. Press it gently against the opening for a few seconds and relax. You may need to do this 4 or 5 times, easing a little further in each time, before you achieve full insertion. Each time you withdraw the plug—re-lubricate. When it’s all the way in, then there’s the matter of getting it back out (when you’re ready to remove it, of course). Again, lube is key. Apply more to the toy, then slowly and firmly, slide it back out. It will probably feel a little weird at first, but if you relax, and with plenty of lube in place, it should slide out nice and easy. A little tip (no pun intended) is to remove the plug after orgasm. An orgasm will naturally relax your pelvic floor.

How to use a butt plug

You can use a butt plug as a welcome addition to just about every type of sex. During oral sex, it makes a great visual for men if they’re partner is wearing one, or intensifying an orgasm when wearing one yourself. As we’ve said, a butt plug is a great way to fill space around the vagina, so there are big bonuses to vaginal sex with a plug in place. Anal sex provides masses of fun and pleasure for many couples. If you’re new to anal, butt plug play is a great introduction that you can take at your own pace. If you enjoy the feeling of movement and the varying pressure against the different parts of your anal canal, then that’s fine too. You can masturbate your butt with your plug, or ideally, get a special set of toys built for the job. Check out our anal dildos, prostate massagers, beads, and more. We have something for everyone. Guaranteed. In fact, as long as it doesn’t hurt, you’re pretty safe to carry out all sorts of butt plug sex any way you like.
