What’s the point?

Pleasure for starters. Your anus is chock-full of sensitive nerve endings that feel fant-ass-tic when stimulated. Your butt hole is also the gateway to the prostate — or the male G-spot — and roundabout to the A-spot and G-spot. 


Yup, anal orgasms are real, anyone with an anus can have one, and a butt plug can help.

All the nerves just inside your backdoor are just part of what makes butt play feel so amazing.

Cisgender men and people assigned male at birth can use a butt plug to achieve a prostate orgasm.

Cisgender women and people assigned female at birth can use one to indirectly stimulate the A-spot or G-spot, which can lead to the phenom known as female ejaculation.

Are butt plugs safe?

Usually, as long as you take the proper precautions. This includes:

Using lots of lube. Lube isn’t optional when it comes to butt play. Not having enough can lead to irritation and tears. By tears, we’re talking tears in the delicate skin of your anus and the tears that run down your cheeks when you cry.

Proper handling. Washing and disinfecting any sex toy before and after use is a must. The reason is, well, poop. Even a super-clean bum contains microscopic fecal matter that can cause infections. Sexually transmitted infections can also be spread by sharing sex toys. Proper care and handling of sex toys can reduce your risk.

Your health. It’s a good idea to hold off on using butt toys if you have hemorrhoids, anal fissures, or a prostate condition. Check with a doctor or other healthcare provider first.

It can’t get stuck or lost — but other things could

While butt plugs are cleverly designed to stay put, other things are not. Don’t use anything that’s not specifically meant for your butt.

What types are there?

Unlike other anal toys, like dildos and probes that are meant for in-out action, butt plugs literally plug your butt. A continuous feeling of fullness is their forte.

Plugs are usually tapered for easy insertion and flare towards the bottom. They come in different materials, each offering up different sensations for your pleasure. You can find smooth plugs, textured plugs, and vibrating plugs.

How do you use it?

Being aroused and relaxed will make using a butt plug more enjoyable. Incorporating one into another play, like masturbation, oral sex, or vaginal penetration is a great way to get your feet wet.

Here are some tips to help make insertion easy and enjoyable:

Take a hot bath or start with some foreplay to help relax tense muscles. This will make insertion less jarring.

Apply lots of lube around your anus and on the plug.

Press the tip of the plug against your anus and then very gradually increase pressure.

Stop right away if you feel any pain. Then, take a deep breath and try again using more lube, a different angle, or a smaller plug.
