What Does A Butt Plug Do? And Our Favorites

A butt plug is a great sex toy for both men and women, and a small one like BASICS Slimline is the perfect way for a beginner to experiment with anal play. No matter how big or small the plug is, they tend to have a similar design-taped at the tip for easy in insertion, a narrow neck for the anus muscles to wrap around and a flat base that sits outside the body to make sure it doesn’t get lost in the anus.

So, What does a butt plug do? It helps to expand and open up your butt muscles before anal sex, and improve vaginal sex. In fact, butt plugs stimulate the nerves of the shared wall of the vagina and anus, which can provide extra pleasure when your partner thrusts inside you. There are also vibrating plugs that help to increase the stimulation for both you and your partner. But, butt plugs with flared bases are considered to be safe and inserting a plug without these features into your body is dangerous and should be avoided at all costs. 

Once it’s in place, you can leave the butt plug in, or you can experiment to find out what feels good. For added intensity you can try a vibrating plug this will feel great, and during orgasm, your body will naturally tense and release around the plug creating new sensations that can get you closer to a full-body orgasm.

How To Use A Butt Plug?

 A lot of people enjoy using a plug during solo play while others prefer to use it with a partner to enhance foreplay, oral and vaginal sex. To use a butt plug, you’ll first have to apply a generous amount of a lubricant to both yourself on the plug then, slowly and gently insert it into your anus.

Butt plugs are great for both men and women; however, men often get extra sensations from a curve like; the Booty Call Curve Butt plug, which is specifically designed to target the prostate. P-spot stimulation leads to trembling orgasms for him.

Plugs come in a range of materials like silicon which is incredibly easy to clean. If you’re looking for a step up from silicone, try a glass or metal. These plugs give extra weight and added sensations but are for the more experienced users.

To clean: Use antibacterial soap or toy cleaner. You can also boil them or put them in the dishwasher if they’re metal silicone or glass.
