How To Choose a Butt Plug

Whilst I and a few of us have done reviews on excellent Butt Plugs on the market such as Nu’s Sensuelle or Fun Factory’s Boosty or LELO’s Hugo… what about those of us out there who are completely overwhelmed by the sheer size and power of some of these toys. Maybe you just don’t know where to start. Choosing the right Butt Plug for you can be a daunting task – especially if you’re just starting out in anal play.

So firstly, there is a few things you should know. No matter how big or small the Butt Plug is, they all tend to have a similar design: a tapered tip for easy insertion, a narrow neck for the body to grip around and a flared base to sit outside of the body to avoid any trips to the emergency room. For prostate stimulation, the plug will be specially designed with a curve in it to target the prostate gland, otherwise known as the P Spot. So if the Butt Plugs you’re looking at have these four things – you’re off to a mighty start.

In this review, I aim to:

  1. Enlighten you to a few products/manufacturers that you may have not heard of before, or maybe don’t know too much about.
  2. Give you the heads up you need to get started.
  3. Give you those little tips that make the whole process much, much easier.

While I don’t want to say there is any right or wrong way to have sex, it is critically important that you follow a few basic rules when engaging in anal play so that you’re shooting through the roof with pleasure and not pain.

What material is best?

If you’re just starting out in anal play, we highly recommend that you use a silicone or jelly toy – as they weigh less, are flexible and are soft. Another excellent plain and simple toy is BASIX Rubber works – Beginners butt plug by Pipedream which is still soft, but that little bit firmer, which makes for easier insertion. Again, both of these noticeably boasting the important features of the flared base, tapered tip and a slightly skinnier neck. Both of these plugs are simple with no frills attached. They’re both small in size and make near perfect for your first butt plug.

So now that you’ve got your new toy… how do you go about using it?

First of all you’re going to want to get a good quality lubricant. At Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centre Kogarah, we highly recommend Pjur‘s range of anal relaxant lubricants – Analyse me and Back Door. These lubricants are much thicker than your “standard” silicone lubricant, and offer more comfort and longer lasting use. You’re going to want to lubricate your new toy generously. With these kind of toys there is no need to go about it like a bull in a china shop. Take your time. Figure out whether you’re comfortable or not. Maybe sit there with the toy inserted for a few minutes before moving it at all. You’ll soon begin to discover what feels good, and what doesn’t. The best and only advice that I can give you at this point is to trust your body. Don’t push yourself if you’re uncomfortable, and just relax and take your time to explore.

How do you choose your next toy?

So when/if you have decided that you liked engaging in anal play, you might want to take a step up in the size department. This is where a set like A- Zone Max Passion Silicone Ring Plugs come in handy! This is a set of three plugs which vary in size and width. Perfect for beginner to intermediate users as there are three different step ups in size which you could use to gradually increase in size. They’re soft, but firm and are made with maximum comfort in mind. They’re made from 100% silicone and even have a ring on the end for easy removal.

Now that you’re 100% comfortable, your next step could be to move to glass or surgical steel butt plugs (which might I add are very pretttttty).

This step however, should not be taken until you’re completely comfortable with the sensation, as glass and steel plugs are typically much heavier and provide a completely different sensation again.

So what’s the overview?

  1. Start small. Think with your butt and not your eyes. Whilst those jeweled babies are extremely pretty, your body probably wont thank you for it if you jump straight in for the kill.
  2. Start with materials such as TPR Jelly or silicone, as its much softer and lighter.
  3. USE A GOOD QUALITY LUBRICANT. The anus can not produce natural lubricant like the vagina can so it is of utter importance that you use lubricant to save yourself from possible damage or being extremely uncomfortable.
  4. Only jump to bigger sized toys when you’re 100% comfortable and ready too.

Another important tip is to check all anal toys (especially glass and steel) for any ridges, seems or uneven surfaces. This could cause extreme and permanent damage to one of the most sensitive parts of your body, so it’s definitely worth that quick 5 second check when you first get the toy out of its packaging.

So with all of that in mind, I think you’re just about ready to embark on a new journey of self exploration. So enjoy! Love from the team at Oh Zone Kogarah and myself.
