How to Make Butt Plugs Part of Your Everyday Sex Life

OK, let's do an experiment. Hands up how many of you are into anal sex? Chances are, a surprising amount of hands have gone up already. Now, keep your hand up if you'd like to talk about butt plugs. Sure, a few hands have gone down, but plenty more are still in the air.

The truth is that butt plugs are used all over the world by anal adventurers to enhance their sex lives and provide stimulation. If you are curious about what they are and how to use them, look no further. This guide will explain everything you need to know.

Butt Plugs: the Basics

First off, let's get some basics out of the way. What are butt plugs anyway? Well, when you get down to it, the humble butt plug is just a piece of plastic or rubber that is tapered at one end and wider at the other. The tapered section is shaped to allow easy insertion into the anus, and tends to be no more than two or three inches long (although lengths and, more importantly, widths, do vary).

The other end is broader and is designed to "plug" the anus, instead of inconveniently slipping inside. It tends to have a ring or hook attached to make it easy to remove when you're done having anal fun. And that's all butt plugs are, at least on the surface of things.

Why do People Use Butt Plugs?

If you've never used butt plugs before, the whole idea might seem somewhat strange. If people are really into anal stimulation, why not go for a dildo or, better yet, have anal sex with someone they love? Well, there are many ways to stimulate your anus, and not everyone is into deep penetration.

With a butt plug, you can enjoy the sensation of being filled by an erect penis (and simulate massive girths if that's an issue in your relationship), while keeping the depth of penetration at a manageable level.

How Butt Plugs Can Send Women into Ecstasy

On another level, butt plugs can also send women to, well, another level. It's all about female anatomy. When a butt plug is properly inserted, it exerts pressure on the woman's vaginal wall. This pressure intensifies the sensation of sexual intercourse, oral sex or foreplay, turbo-charging the clitoris.

It doesn't work for all women, but many swear by their butt plug. And, if you've ever felt something is missing from your vaginal orgasms, a butt plug could be what you've been missing.

Both Partners Can Benefit from Butt Plug Insertion

Here's another weird thing about using butt plugs: they actually make sex more pleasurable for both partners. In heterosexual sex, when the woman has a butt plug inserted, it constricts the vaginal opening. The guy can still penetrate her easily, but it will feel tighter, more intimate, and potentially much more enjoyable.

"Butt" What About Guys? Why Would They Need to Plug Their Anus?

If you're a guy who is into anal stimulation, this seems like a no-brainer, but many newbies simply don't get it. One of the whole aims of anal sex is to stimulate the guy's prostate gland, until he reaches an anal orgasm. As the prostate tends to be a couple of inches away from the anal opening, butt plugs are the ideal size to stimulate this magical gland. With additions like studs or hooks, they can achieve levels of stimulation that ordinary sex and anal masturbation never could, making butt plugs a mainstay of homosexual foreplay.

Choosing the Right Butt Plug for You

Now that you've realised how pleasurable a butt plug could be, let's help you choose the ideal product for your needs. If you haven't used one before, don't get greedy. Go for something relatively small and work your way up to monster sizes. You want to "train" your butt to accommodate objects, not rip it apart. Avoid gnarly looking plugs with extra studs for now.

They are for real pros. Instead, opt for something nice and smooth. Silicone and rubber are good materials, being smooth and supple. When you slide in the plug, it should enter with no problems at all. Also, try to go for high grade sex toys. Some cheaper models are made from materials that can react and degrade, inflaming your anal tissues. Avoid that at all costs, as it could sour you on the beauty of butt plugs for good, and that would be a tragedy.

How to Use Your Shiny New Butt Plug

So you've ordered a top of the range new butt plug from a reputable online vendor and it's arrived on time and looking beautiful. How do you get started in the exciting world of butt plugging? Well, the first thing to do is prepare the butt plug for insertion. This usually involves applying a suitable lube to make it easy to penetrate your anus.

Generally, it's a god rule of thumb to opt for a water-based lube. Other types can react chemically with the plastics used in sex toys, which can lead to damage and tissue irritation, which is something all butt plug users need to avoid. However, with a properly lubed up butt plug, you're ready to go.

What next?

Penetrate, and Keep Your Butt Plug Inserted for the Duration

The next step is simple. Bend over, spread your legs and simply insert your lubed butt plug until it is inside your anal cavity. You should see the broader end peeking out from your behind. Feel free to stand up and admire it in the mirror if that turns you on. Otherwise, enjoy the sensation of having your butt completely filled by a plug.

You can keep your plug inserted as you masturbate or have sex. Alternatively, some real afficionados like to wear their plugs all night. Dancing and getting to know potential partners with your butt plug gently pressing on your prostate and vaginal wall can be an intense experience, but it's not for everybody.

Always Use Your Butt Plug Safely, and You'll Have a Friend For Life

When you use your butt plug, be careful for the first few sessions. Remember, your ass wasn't really made for anal insertions, so you need to get used to it. If you feel any pain or notice bleeding, give it a rest for a bit. You may need a smaller butt plug, or a gentler technique. Either way, try again in a few days and you should find a tempo and intensity that works for you.

The results will amaze you. Butt plugs can become an obsession, enabling out of this world orgasms. If you haven't tried them, now is the time. Your butt won't forgive you if you don't.
