The Ultimate Butt Plug Guide for Beginners (2023 Updated)


The butt is quite an interesting anatomy. We all know it as an exit for things that aren’t so nice to see or smell–the farts and turds. But the butt can also be an entrance for some pleasurable stuff. You may have already heard the term “butt plug,” but just in case you’re still living in the Ice Age, a butt plug is defined by Wikipedia as a sex toy that is designed to be inserted into the rectum for sexual pleasure. The urban dictionary gives a more vivid definition. It defines a butt plug as an anal device with a distinctive, rounded, conical shape that abruptly tapers off before reaching a flat disc-shaped bottom. Sure you get the picture now. 


When you think of or hear the term butt plug, what questions come to mind? Maybe you probably never wonder that far. But other people with inquisitive and curious minds may ask, what is a butt plug, or what is the purpose of a butt plug? 


It’s not simply about shoving something up someone’s butt and ramming the rectum away. There’s a lot to learn and discover about butt plugs and the pleasure they bring.

What is the Purpose of a Butt Plug?

So let’s get into it, what really is the purpose of a butt plug? Well, the obvious response is that butt plugs are for the sole purpose of exciting and arousing the nerve endings in the anus. 

The anus is indeed loaded with plenty of nerve endings that can give you a hell of a good time. By the way, the so-called male G-spot is located in the butt, and most men who have tried butt play can attest to the fact that the anus can be a source of sexual pleasure and stimulation. Not just for men though, women too can enjoy butt play. Butt play can be so delicious, some men even cum harder from it than from penetrating a vagina with their penis.

So now you get the point, the butt can make you have a hella good time. Now let’s see what butt plugs do. 


What Do Butt Plugs Do?

Let’s talk about it, what do these butt plugs do? 

Orgasm

Believe it or not, butt plugs can actually give you a hardcore orgasm. We’re talking, toe-curling, squirming, and moaning type of orgasms. Those who have experienced anal orgasms have described it as a shock wave that runs through your entire body over and over and lasts longer than a penile orgasm for men. It’s absolutely assome, sorry meant awesome. 

Essentially, men can use a butt plug to achieve a prostate orgasm or stimulate the male G-spot.  Women on the other hand can experience mind-blowing sexual pleasure with butt plugs. 

You can even experience intense hybrid orgasms by stimulating both the anus with the butt plug and the vagina or penis at the same time which could lead to a massive double orgasm.


Anal Stretching or Training

Before you get to the big things, a butt plug could be a great way to prep up and prime your butt for penis penetration, thick dildo play and penetration, or even anal gaping. It’s always good to start off small, then work your way to the “big fish.”

Kink

If you’re the type that enjoys a little kink, butt plugs could be a great way of adding some kink to your playtime. You can either wear one during vaginal penetration for some double penetration action or even during submissive play. If you tend to lean more towards the wild side, you could also even wear one in public.


Vagina Narrowing 

Believe it or not, the vagina can be narrowed by using butt plugs which can help stimulate both the man and the woman and make for amazing sex. 


Butt Plugs are Inclusive

If you have a butt, then you can use a butt plug. And everyone has a butt, well, hopefully. Part of what butt plugs do is they allow people to get to know what turns them on when it comes to ass play. Since using tongues and fingers can feel especially intimate, a butt plug can ease inhibitions to allow people to focus on sensations.

"One of the awesome things about butt play is that people with any genitalia can have a good time with it," says a certified sex educator. "The sensations and experiences that feel good to you have nothing to do with your sexual orientation or gender. It’s kind of like how the food that you enjoy is a totally different question than who you want to have dinner with."

That said, it’s important to make sure you’re extra careful about it if you’re sharing them between butts. Sex toys made from a porous material such as jelly-like material may have germs lurking even after cleaning. In these cases, or if you’re unsure, put a condom on it or stick to one toy per partner.


What’s a Vibrating Butt Plug?

Vibrating butt plugs are a relatively easy way to enhance your sexual pleasure during masturbation and partnered sex. You just pop the plug in your rear end, turn on the vibrations, and leave it there as long as you want.

You definitely want to have a vibrating butt plug in your sex toolbox.


How Do I Choose a Vibrating Butt Plug?

Essentially, you can choose between battery-powered and rechargeable. It’s important to note that both have pros and cons. Battery-operated ones are usually cheaper, so it's potentially good for someone who is just starting out or on a tight budget. 


Battery-operated vibrating butt plugs tend to be a little more buzzy, which can feel itchy if you're someone who prefers rumbly vibration. On the other hand, rechargeable ones tend to be of much higher quality, often come with warranties, and are usually made out of non-porous materials meaning they're smoother, water resistant, and less likely to accumulate bacteria.

Make sure to choose a size that works for your butthole, start smaller, and don’t get too ambitious too soon. 


How To Use a Vibrating Butt Plug?

Sex experts encourage users to try the plug solo to see how it feels before bringing it to partnered sex. Lay down a towel, make sure your plug is either fully charged or has fresh batteries, use a large amount of compatible lube, and lie in a comfortable position for insertion and see how things go.


Most people like to lie either on their back or on their side for solo play, but you could really do it in whatever position is most accessible for you—including standing. It is also recommended to wait to turn on the vibrations until after the plug is inside you, so you're not trying to insert a rapidly-buzzing object.


Also, make sure you have some wipes nearby to wipe off your hands before handling the remote. Breathe and relax! Take it nice and slow, and go on and have a fabulous time.

Beginner Butt Plugs

The size and shape of a butt plug are two of the main factors that will affect how easy or challenging the insertion process is. For complete beginners, an extra small butt plug is best. This small size, when paired with a tapered tip and an adequate amount of lubricant, will make insertion easy! Toys with a rounded end are best suited for people with a bit of anal experience since they won’t slide in as easily as tapered-tip toys will.

FAQs

What materials are butt plugs made from?

Butt plugs are made from silicone, stainless steel, and glass. Silicone is more gentle and therefore recommended for beginners. 


How long can a beginner keep in a butt plug? 

If you’ve never used a butt plug before, we’d recommend starting with 5-10 minutes per session. You can gradually work your way up to the recommended 20-30 minute maximum.


How to get a prostate orgasm with a beginner butt plug?

In order to have a prostate orgasm, you’ll need to have a plug that’s long enough to stimulate your prostate! Although optional, vibrations may be helpful as well.


How to walk around with a butt plug?

As long as your butt plug has an adequately flared base (or a t-bar base) then you can walk around with it in! The process is just like a normal walking, but the sensation will take some getting used to. We’d recommend testing the waters behind closed doors before venturing out into the public eye!


Is jelly a good material for a beginner butt plug?

Jelly is actually one of the worst beginner butt plug materials! Yes, it’s usually cheap, but that’s because it’s low-quality material. Not only is it porous (which means it can’t be sanitized), jelly often contains phthalates (chemicals used to soften plastics that are linked to long-term health complications).


Wrap Up

Butt plugs can definitely be a way to spice up your bedroom, but you need to go about it carefully. If you’re a beginner, remember to first find out which material and size works best for you, and take it nice and slow. Start by going solo before involving your partner. 

If you’re a pro, well keep being a pro and enjoy yourself.
