Butt Plugs 101: Surviving your first anal plug

Let’s be frank here. You either love or hate anal sex. The reason for such polarization is that it can get pretty painful if you don’t prepare your body properly. However, if you do, it can be one of the best sexual experiences in your life.

People who are in love with anal don’t have a different body from yours. Their trick is using toy plugs that prepare them for rectal penetration. But that’s not all. You can use these toys in addition to vaginal penetration to simulate some DP action or for male prostate stimulation.

Either way, our article is here to bring you closer to these rude boys. We’ll go through the ins and outs of butt plugs in the hope of helping you survive your first encounter with them. Let’s jump straight into it.

Why People Like It

What makes one have anal sex? Well, the answer to your question is rather simple. Your anus is pretty rich when it comes to nerve endings. Moreover, it’s one of the most erogenous zones on your body. It’s not just about being kinky and doing things that are taboo and controversial.

On the other hand, anal penetration is likely to bring both males and females closer to an even stronger orgasm. The reason is that both genders have a G-spot near their rectal canals. And by applying pressure to your anus, you’ll stimulate either your prostate or its female equivalent.

Another reason why people might engage in anal using butt plugs along the way is the fact that it can provide you with double stimulation. For some women, the idea of being penetrated in both holes seems like a good idea. It’s an overwhelming feeling that you can’t feel any other way. And with plugs, you won’t need another person in the room to fill the gap.

How to Try a Butt Plug Safely

Staying In and Staying Out

Plugs are sex toys that have a teardrop shape. Their top is pointy, but as you go down the body, they will become wider. On the bottom of the toy, there’s a flared base. This base is pretty important since it protects you from the toy getting stuck inside your body if you push too hard.

If you’re looking to get one, you should always aim for toys with a flared bottom. Whether they’re made from stainless steel or silicone plugs, most of the premium ones will feature it. However, some can have a chain or a rope that you can use to extract it. Another option is to go for tail plugs, which have ornamental tails with faux fur that can be cool for pet play and other animal fetishes.


The reason why some people don’t enjoy anal sex is the fact that your rectum doesn’t self-lubricate like a vagina. This makes raw penetration pretty painful and overall unpleasant. Most newbies don’t know that, and it’s what makes them have an awful first-time experience. Nevertheless, there’s a way to go around that.


With the use of lubrication, you can make your ass as wet as you want it to be. This way, there will be no friction once a penis or a plug goes inside. We would suggest you always use water-based lube since your body might be allergic to some other types of products that might taste or smell better.

Body-Safe Materials

One of the bad things about the adult toy industry is that it doesn’t have regulations that dictate body-safe materials. So, a newbie looking to get into something kinky might accidentally purchase a toy made of harmful materials. Their body will react to it at some point, making the whole ordeal anything but fun. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Namely, if you’re looking to get an anal plug, you should aim for the ones that state they’re safe for your body. These materials include silicone, stainless steel, glass, and even wood. However, don’t use plastic or acrylic plugs because they contain harmful chemicals inside that will damage your skin and body. If you do, by some chance, be sure to visit a doctor immediately. 

On the other hand, body-safe materials are also great because they’re easy to clean. And since your putting plugs into your body, it’s easy to understand why hygiene must be on the highest level. You should always clean your toys before and after use. Also, don’t use the same toy for different holes unless you put a new condom on them.

How to Play With a Butt Plug

When it comes to the actual use of plugs, anal beads, and all similar toys, it’s key to say that you should start slowly and gradually increase your game. That means that you should first play with your finger before you employ your anal toy. We suggest that you use latex gloves before finger insertion because there’s no reason the spread anal bacteria around if they’re on your skin.

Start by slowly rubbing the rim with your lubricated fingers. Once you feel relaxed, insert one or two inside. Take your time before you use a butt plug. However, when you are ready, don’t go jamming it in hard. Start slowly again and allow your anus to swallow the toy steadily. After that, you can try out different positions with your body while the toy is inside.
