Not only are there a lot of nerve endings in the rectum, but they are remarkably sensitive too, which only helps to heighten the pleasure a butt plug can bring.

What is a butt plug?

Generally, butt plugs are all designed in the same shape. The top is narrow and tapered with a larger flared base. The flared base is essential so that the plug does not get lost inside your rectum, as the anal canal is rather long.

Butt plugs are inserted into the rectum during masturbation or sex play and can be left in there whilst you continue with penetration or stimulating the penis.

Some people like the feeling of a butt plug that they insert one and go about their day to day activities, although it is recommended only to leave a butt plug inserted for 20 minutes at a time.

Do I need to use a lubricant with a butt plug?

One thing to bear in mind is that the rectum is not the same as the vagina, in the sense that it does not self-lubricate. It is therefore of upmost importance that you use a lubricant with a butt plug.

Ideally always go for a water-based lubricant and be aware that silicone-based lubes are not compatible with silicone made toys and oil-based lube can break down latex.

What should I be looking for when first choosing a butt plug?

There are certain things you need to be aware of when choosing a butt plug to buy:

  • Ensure the butt plug has a flared base for reasons detailed above
  • Look at the material the sex toy is made from. You need to be careful that you are choosing a toy that is made from body-safe material. Avoid cheap plastic and PVC and instead choose one made from silicone or steel.
  • Consider the size of the toy as although butt plugs are generally the same shape, the size can differ to meet everyone’s needs. It is always best to start with a smaller butt plug and then gradually work your way up to a bigger one, if you choose to.
