How to Use Anal Plugs

Sex Toys on a Red Background

First, make sure you have plenty of lubricant. It will help to make insertion less jarring and increase pleasure. Also, take a deep breath and relax your muscles before you try to insert the plug.

It is best to choose a plug made of body-safe materials like silicone or metal and one that has a large round flared base. This will keep the plug from sliding inside.

Start with a small size

As with any sex toy, the first time you try an anal plug is best done with caution. There is no hard and fast rule when it comes to size as everyone’s anus is different, and a lot of what makes a good anal plug is dependent on how your body responds to it (as well as if you’re tense or relaxed). A good place to start is with something as small as your finger — or even smaller — lubed up with some of your favourite sexy lubricant.

Once you feel comfortable with this, you can start to gradually add in larger toys. However, it’s important to always warm up with a small, starter plug and only go as big as you feel comfortable, as going too large can cause pain or damage.

Stretch your anus

It’s important to keep in mind that the anus is a muscle that needs to be stretched out. This process isn’t necessarily painful but it can be uncomfortable. That’s why you need to go slow and take your time with anal stretching.

When you’re ready to start, lube up your smallest sized plug and then slowly put it inside your anal canal. Make sure that you’re using a toy with a wide, flared base (anal plugs without these are dangerous).

When you’re comfortable with your new toy and can insert it easily, start to play around. Pushing the toy in a circular motion can feel really good. It’s also a great idea to use a lot of lubricant while doing this. Lubrication will help prevent any discomfort or irritation and it will also make it easier for you to take out the plug when you’re done. Make sure to reapply lube regularly. Remember that your anus doesn’t self-lubricate like your vagina, so lube is essential for anal play.

Use lubricant

People should use plenty of lubricant when using anal plugs. This is especially important because the anus does not lubricate itself like the vagina does. In fact, if you try to insert a sex toy without enough lube and it gets stuck inside your anus, you may have to visit the doctor to have it removed.

Luckily, you can prevent this by applying lubricant to both the anal plug and your anus before trying to insert it. Using a water-based lube that is compatible with your anal plug is best. It will provide a long-lasting glide that won’t cause irritation or dryness.

Aside from being a great anal stimulator, butt plugs are also great for penetrative anal play. Unlike a dildo, butt plugs have a wide base that helps them reach more of the erogenous zone and can help to elicit orgasms in men and women. People who enjoy domination and submission play often turn to anal plugs for these reasons. For this reason, it’s important to use plenty of foreplay to get yourself turned on before touching your anus with a butt plug.

Don’t overestimate your butt

While butt plugs can be used on their own, for clitoral stimulation, during penetrative sex or for masturbation, they are also often used with anal play to reach erogenous zones that aren’t stimulated by a man’s penis. This type of kink can be intensely satisfying and even create blended orgasms, which are caused by stimulating more than one erogenous zone at once.

If you’re considering trying out butt plugs, it’s important to start with foreplay and make sure you’re aroused. If you’re not, you may experience discomfort as your butt gets used to being penetrated.

You should always use lube when playing with butt plugs, as this will help prevent irritation. Water-based lube is great because it’s barrier-friendly and doesn’t cause friction, but silicone lube can be better for extended use. Whatever lube you choose, be generous with it, and remember to apply it to both your anus and the plug. This will help ensure both a smooth insertion and a pleasurable exit. Be sure to check the label of your sex toy for lubrication instructions.

Pull the plug out gently

When using butt plugs, it’s important to remember that your anus is a very sensitive area. If the experience hurts, it’s a sign that you need to slow down, try a different size, use more lube, or go from another angle. Also, remember that it’s not ok to put just anything in your anus and that you should always respect your body’s boundaries and limits.

If you’re ready to explore anal plugs, start by pre-stretching your anus with your fingers and then slowly inserting the plug. Be sure to apply plenty of lubrication during the whole process, and don’t forget to reapply as needed. Ideally, you should use a water-based or silicone-based lubricant, as they work best with most butt plug materials.

Anal plugs are an exciting kink toy that can be used for both solo and partner play. Some people even use them to prepare their bodies for anal sex, either during the same sexual encounter or for a future one (known as anal training). They can also heighten pleasure and arousal during masturbation and increase the intensity of orgasms. Lastly, they’re often used in a dominant/submissive or BDSM scene or dynamic to explore feelings of humiliation and power.
