Anal play is not for the impatient or beginners. If you have never even had a finger in your anus, you may not want to jump to the biggest plug you can find. Plugs come in a variety of sizes and working your way up is important. If you have never ventured into anal play, I recommend starting with a finger or two and a ton of lube. While I firmly believe that a little anal play can make sex more enjoyable for all involved, some people just cannot get over the mentality of it all. If you are one of those people, this guide is not for you. If you do enjoy anal play, or believe you would, I encourage you to keep reading.
When done correctly, anal plugs can provide an entirely new level of stimulation to sexual intercourse and foreplay. If you have a vagina, inserting an anal plug into your anus before penetration can make the vaginal canal feel tighter and tilt your partner upwards so that they may hit your g-spot more effectively. If you have a prostate, anal play can provide you with mind-blowing orgasms very unlike orgasms one would experience from penis stimulation.
The We-Vibe Ditto Rechargeable Remote and App Control Vibrating Butt Plug is the perfect butt plug for anybody who enjoys anal play, from new users to the more experienced. Most of We-Vibe’s products, including this one, can connect to their app, We-Connect. I will not try to explain how their app works, but I had difficulty connecting to it. Although, once it is connected, it is smooth sailing. Their app allows you to customize your vibrations to your specific needs, save your favorites, and control the Ditto from a distance (from across the room or all the way across the world).
The We-Vibe Ditto Rechargeable Remote and App Control Vibrating Butt Plug is made of silky smooth silicone and has no noticeable seams. The body is small with a bulb that is designed to fit in the rectum comfortably. It has a circumference of three and three-quarters of an inch at the widest part and an insertable length of three inches. When using just the remote, you are presented with over ten vibration modes. It is also USB rechargeable and completely waterproof. The charger is magnetic and can be a bit finicky to keep it connected unless you place it on a flat surface that will not be easily bumped.
The base of the We-Vibe Ditto Rechargeable Remote and App Control Vibrating Butt Plug has a longer arm that rests against your taint and a shorter arm that rests between your cheeks. With the right lubricant, this butt plug is fantastic for long term wear. Just be sure to work up to it, do not jump to never wearing a plug to wearing one for hours at a time. You have to allow your bum time to get used to having something in it! Furthermore, use an appropriate lube if you are going to wear the Ditto for longer than sexual intercourse, water-based lubes absorbs too quickly into the rectum making for an uncomfortable and dry exit.
Upon holding the We-Vibe Ditto Rechargeable Remote and App Control Vibrating Butt Plug at first, the vibrations may seem weak and underwhelming, but once inserted it delivers a powerful sensation into your anal cavity. If you have the We-Vibe 4 Plus, it is not as strong as that, but being in a different orifice, it will feel completely different and possibly overwhelming to some. And thanks to the bulb on the front of the body, the Ditto pushes those powerful vibrations right into your prostate or aim towards your g-spot. During PIV intercourse, your partner is sure to feel the vibrations through the wall separating the two cavities.
I have found that sitting in certain positions or some positions during sexual intercourse can be uncomfortable with the We-Vibe Ditto Rechargeable Remote and App Control Vibrating Butt Plug due to the odd shape. The sides are a bit wider than your average butt plug and do unusually push against your body. If you find this to be the case with your body, I recommend trying different positions.
The We-Vibe Ditto Rechargeable Remote and App Control Vibrating Butt Plug is the number one product on my list of the best butt plugs because it is the best. Not only does it have a remote control, but it can connect to an app that works from across the world, it defines luxury, and it hits all the right places! Waterproof, rechargeable, and has toe-tingling vibrations. Even people new to anal play will find something to fall in love with when it comes to this butt plug. The price may be intimidating, but for everything that comes with the We-Vibe Ditto Rechargeable Remote and App Control Vibrating Butt Plug, it is more than worth it!
The Lelo Hugo SenseMotion Remote Control Rechargeable Prostate Massager is a remote controlled butt plug that is designed to be, as the name states, a prostate massager, but that does not mean that those without prostates cannot use it! That being said, it is not shaped like a regular butt plug and may be difficult to wear out and about or for long periods. The external arm (that acts as a flared base) is five inches long, while the insertable length of the vibrating portion is five and a half inches long. At its widest point, the circumference is only four inches.
Like the We-Vibe Ditto Rechargeable Remote and App Control Vibrating Butt Plug the Lelo Hugo SenseMotion Remote Control Rechargeable Prostate Massager is made with premium silicone, is controlled with a remote, is rechargeable, and completely waterproof. An hour of charge will provide users with two hours of play time. With two vibrating motors and twice the vibration power, two hours of playtime is bound to leave you clenching the sheets with quivering legs. While you can control this butt plug with the single push button on the base of it, it is best paired with its remote.
The remote requires two triple “A” batteries, which are included, but I recommend buying rechargeables! There are three buttons on the remote, and it can be used across the room by your partner or by you for a hands-free experience. It is also equipped with SenseMotion, which means the remote response to the movement of your hand, sending a completely personalized vibration pattern to the wearer! On top of that, the Lelo Hugo SenseMotion Remote Control Rechargeable Prostate Massager is curved with a bulbous head to perfectly fit the colon and rest perfectly against the prostate, or aim the vibrations at your g-spot. And the external arm is designed to tease your taint!
With the remote, the Lelo Hugo SenseMotion Remote Control Rechargeable Prostate Massager has six pre-programmed vibration modes, and you can adjust the intensity of the vibrations of each mode to your personal needs. Use the Hugo with a generous amount of lube as it can be a bit big for those newer to anal play. If you are not new to anal play, you should know that the more lubricant you use, the better. Due to the shape of the Hugo, the more lube you use, the more likely it will be difficult to use hands-free or while standing!
While We-Vibe will always hold a special place in heart, Lelo comes in a close second. Their packaging, attention to detail, and mission to create toys that fit most bodies and provide intense pleasure makes them a favorite manufacturer. The Lelo Hugo SenseMotion Remote Control Rechargeable Prostate Massager lives up to that hype and is perfect for newbies and experienced anal players alike. The SenseMotion technology that they included in the remote really sends this device over the top and makes it worth every penny!
The Lelo Hugo SenseMotion Remote Control Rechargeable Prostate Massager provides strong vibrations right where you want them. For the hefty price tag, you get a device that is rechargeable, remote controlled, has patented SenseMotion Technology, is waterproof, and even comes with the batteries you need for the remote! While it would be difficult to wear out, it a great butt plug to have in your toy box because of the great orgasms your partner can give you from across the room! The Lelo Hugo SenseMotion Remote Control Rechargeable Prostate Massager may not be for everyone, but women can get just as much pleasure from it as men.
The Colt Anal Butt Plug Set is a three-piece set used for anal training. The three pieces are pliable and tapered for smooth insertion. The flared base keeps the plug comfortably outside of your body for the duration of your play time and leaves you in control during the entire use. The smallest plug has a length of nearly five inches and has a three-inch circumference at its widest point. The medium plug is five and a half inches in length and has a circumference of four inches at its widest point. The largest of the three plugs have a length of six and a half inches and has a circumference of five and a half inches at its widest point.
These are the only buttplugs on this list that do not vibrate and are made of rubber. While rubber will break down quicker than silicone and has the potential to harbor bacteria, Colt is an amazing company that does make quality, affordable toys. Since these do not vibrate, they are completely submersible in water. And the wide base makes them harness compatible. Just be sure to use a lot of lubricant to avoid tearing or irritation.
As I said before, the Colt Anal Butt Plug Set is perfect for anal training. Anal training is when you get your bum used to wearing something and then move up to get it accustomed to wearing or taking larger items. With the Colt, Anal Butt Plug Set you would start with the smallest and work your way up, as well as gradually working your way up in how much time you leave the butt plug in place for. I recommend determining a goal time, like an hour for example, and starting with fifteen minutes with the smallest one. Once you are used to wearing the smallest butt plug for fifteen minutes, wear it for half an hour. Do this until you reach an hour and then move up a size and start over!
Like with any anal play, be sure to take your time with anal training and have patience. If you rip or tear your anus, you run the risk of infection. Furthermore, it is important that you use enough of the right kind of lubricant. I suggest a thick water-based or hybrid and reapply it as needed. Taking out a butt plug with a dry bum is not fun!
One of the most unique features of the Colt Anal Butt Plug Set is that it has a dual core. While the outer layer is made of firm rubber, the inner core is made of a squishy, jelly-like material. Considering the design of these butt plugs, the jelly material should never touch your skin, but adds an extra element of comfort to the plugs! It is exposed on the bottom of the plug so that you can see and squish it with your finger, but otherwise, it is completely wrapped in the firm rubber.
Anal training is a great sexual goal if you want to enjoy more anal sex. The Colt Anal Butt Plug Set is a fantastic place to start. With three butt plugs, all varying in length and girth, they make it easy to get started and work your way up. While they are made of rubber and a jelly-like center, they are safe for anal play and can be used with any water-soluble lubricant. The price and quality of the Colt Anal Butt Plug Set make it worth giving a shot, even if you are unsure if anal training is for you.
It may not vibrate, but it has a feature unlike the others mentioned in this article. This butt plug has an internal steel ball (aka jiggle ball), similar to a kegel ball, the bounces and knocks around with your body’s motions for a one of a kind stimulation. While it can be amazing to wear during sex, this butt plug is marketed for men and women, to be worn outside of the bedroom, pre-playtime, to boost arousal via the pleasuring “jiggle” of the ball. It comes with a storage bag and is completely waterproof.
If you have ever used kegels, you understand what I mean when I say “jiggle ball,” but let us assume that you do not know what that means. The Fifty Shades Darker Primal Attraction Butt Plug is a plastic, hollow plug, that is covered in silicone. The hollow hole in the middle of the plug has a small metal ball that is free to float around the empty space. When you move, the ball moves. It bounces around the hollow inside of the plug, and you can feel it within your anal cavity. This provides a unique sensation and keeps your mind on naughty activities during the entire duration of the wear.
The Fifty Shades Darker Primal Attraction Butt Plug has a tapered tip and gently expanding body to make insertion easy. It is made with a silky smooth silicone and designed to mimic one of the devices used on Anastasia in the Fifty Shades of Gray books. Use thick water based or silicone based lubricant to make the insertion more pleasurable and easier. The ball is free within the cavity of the butt plug to roam and bounce as your body moves it around. It features at-bar base to keep the plug snuggly tucked between your cheeks and safely in position.
The Fifty Shades Darker Primal Attraction Butt Plug has an overall length of five inches, only four and a half of those are insertable, and it has a four and a half inch circumference at its widest point. Due to the size, I would not recommend this butt plug for someone brand new to anal play, and even for intermediate users, I suggest using a fair amount of lubricant for a comfortable experience. If you have a discomfort inserting the plug or experience, relax and try again. Taking your time with anal play and anal toys are important to have a great time.
During intercourse, the Fifty Shades Darker Primal Attraction Butt Plug and the ball bouncing around can both be felt by your partner. While you will get more action from the jiggle ball while walking, running, etc., it is not easy to miss while wearing the plug during sex. If you or your partner find anal vibrators to be too much during intercourse, but want to add tightness and a little something more, this butt plug is the perfect addition to your toy box!
The Fifty Shades Darker Primal Attraction Butt Plug is like a kegel ball for your bum. While kegel balls focus more on exercise rather than pleasure, The Fifty Shades Darker Primal Attraction Butt Plug will keep your mind on dirty thoughts while you are out doing your grocery shopping or what have you while wearing it. If you prefer to wear it during intercourse, even your partner can enjoy the unique feeling of the “jiggle ball” through your wall. If you are looking for something new and exciting to add to your butt toys, this butt plug is like no other and sure to deliver that slight reminder you are looking for.
The Lovehoney Butt Tingler 10 Function Vibrating Butt Plug also features a t-bar shaped flare to add comfort and security to your wear time. It has a four-inch insertable length and a four and a half inch circumference at its widest part. It also features ten intense vibration modes. The tapered head makes it easy to insert, and the bulbous center creates a full feeling during wear. It does require a single triple “A” battery (that is not included), and I recommend getting rechargeable batteries so that you never “run out.”
On the base of the Lovehoney Butt Tingler 10 Function Vibrating Butt Plug is a button that cycles through the three vibration speeds and seven patterns. There is only the single button, so if you miss the setting you were looking for, you will have to cycle back through. The lack of a remote can make operating this butt plug a bit difficult. The button is attached to a removable bullet so that you can enjoy the silky silicone plug without vibrations, or enjoy the vibrations elsewhere for pinpoint stimulation! Also, the bullet is completely waterproof so you can take your butt plug or just the bullet into the shower or tub with you!
I did find that the fatter neck did make it easier for the Lovehoney Butt Tingler 10 Function Vibrating Butt Plug to be pushed out during orgasm or squatting. Considering the amount of lube I use for anal play, it makes it even more likely to happen at an inopportune time. It can be annoying when you drop it like it is hot to look at the sugary cereal on the bottom shelf at the grocery store and your butt plug pops out. Personally, I do not enjoy wearing this one out and find that even my partner can push it out with his penis during sex if we are not careful.
Despite there being ten options to choose from, I found that the vibrations were a bit weak. When you insert something into your anus, you need powerful vibrations to have them carried where you want them. The sphincter applies a lot of pressure to the vibrations and having weak vibrations, to begin with, can cause them to dissipate even more when inserted. I was not impressed with the bullet included with the Lovehoney Butt Tingler 10 Function Vibrating Butt Plug, although I found it easy to find a stronger bullet to replace it with.
The Lovehoney Butt Tingler 10 Function Vibrating Butt Plug is the most affordable, versatile plug on this list. You can use it as it comes or switches it up. The removable bullet makes this butt plug the easiest to switch to just a butt plug or make more powerful by replacing the included bullet. You can take it in the shower or wear it to go swimming. Since the bullet can be removed, you can use it without the plug for your other erogenous zones. I was not as big of a fan of this one as I was the others on my list, but it is great if you are trying to figure out what you prefer when it comes to anal play!
In your anal cavity, you will find the same nerve endings found in the penis and clitoris. Not only that, but the clitoral legs and prostate can be stimulated through anal play, and with the right knowledge and positioning you can even indirectly hit your g-spot. Anal play, even just rubbing around the opening, has the potential to make orgasms more intense. If you plan on anal insertion (or using one of the items on this list), use a lot of lube and go slow. You should always start with a finger, a small butt plug, or a small dildo and work your way up.
As one of the most easily identified sex toys on the market, the butt plug is the most popular anal sex toy currently available. They generally have a flared base, loop, or handle to ensure that the device does not slip into your rectum and have to be surgically removed. They also have a long (usually thin) neck, to ensure a comfortable fit and that it will not slip out while you are wearing it. The neck usually, also, helps the anal sphincters to relax. Finally, they can usually be easily recognized by their tapered head for easy insertion and bulb shape for a comforting fit.
Everyone, no matter their gender or sexuality, can benefit from butt plugs. Not only are they used to make anal sex easier, but they also allow you to experience different faucets of pleasure during vaginal intercourse, masturbation, oral sex, and more activities! They apply pressure and create a full feeling, which can help you obtain a vaginal and, or anal orgasm. By inserting a butt plug before vaginal sex, you can increase the tightness of the vaginal canal and help tilt your partner up towards your g-spot. Furthermore, during orgasm, the anal muscles may contract and spasm around the plug, intensifying your orgasm.
Just like dildos, vibrators, and every other sex toy on the market, butt plugs come in a variety of sizes. You should do research and determine a good starting point for yourself before purchasing just any butt plug. Usually, beginners will start with a butt plug that has a circumference of no more than three inches at its widest point and an insertable length of two to three and a half inches. The more comfortable you get with anal play, the bigger girths and lengths you may want to experiment with. Choosing the right butt plug size is a personal choice and varies from person to person.
As with the various other sex toys on the market, butt plugs can be made of many different materials. The safest and most common are silicone, glass, and metal. Glass and metal can be used to temperature play, are usually incredibly smooth, and are easy to clean. That being said, metal will be the heaviest out of the three safest materials and will not have any flexibility at all. Glass butt plugs will be lighter than metal, but still provide a bit of weight when you wear it. Silicone is the most popular, can be flexible, is easy to clean, and is usually much lighter than the other two options.
Almost everything is made more fun and interesting with vibrations. With butt plugs, vibrations can add an entirely new level of pleasure. The best vibrating butt plugs have the vibrations focused in the tip of the plug, that way they can travel to the prostate, perineal sponge, and the a-spot much easier. Some even have a second motor located in the shaft or flared base to provide vibrations to the taint. If you wear a vibrating butt plug during intercourse, there is a high chance your partner will be able to feel the vibrations as well! Finding the vibrations, you enjoy most can be a fun adventure!
The first thing you should know about using a butt plug is that it should never hurt. You may experience pain if you do not allow your body to relax when inserting or removing the butt plug. If you experience pain, you should immediately remove the plug. Just as important is to use lube, relax, and communicate with your partner. The anus does not create its own lubricant, like the vagina, and you will likely use more lube than you thought you would need.
You should apply a ton of lube to both the butt plug and your anus to make it easier to insert the plug. I usually recommend a thick water-based anal lubricant, but depending on the material you might be able to use a silicone or hybrid type. The thicker the lubricant, the more it will protect you from rips, tears, and harmful bacteria.
Your very first butt plug should not have any texture, and you should insert it while laying down and comfortable. After you become used to using butt plugs, you can start experimenting with some that are larger or have more texture. You may even want to start wearing them for longer periods. Never wear a butt plug for more than six hours at a time!
Women may find anal play easier if they orgasm first. Having an orgasm before you begin playing with your bum will help you to relax and be more open to anal pleasure. I have found that using a clitoral vibrator while inserting a butt plug helps me achieve a world-rocking orgasm!
Finally, you should always clean your butt plugs with warm soap and water. If they are nonporous, you can wipe them down with a ten percent bleach solution to sterilize them. Store your butt plugs out of direct sunlight and do not share them with someone you are not fluid bonded with.
