Butt Plugs For Beginners!

My boyfriend has always been really experimental when it comes to being intimate. Recently he threw out the idea of trying something very different for me. I was unsure about where he was going with the whole conversation because last time I ended up covered in sundae toppings. However, this time he asked if I would ever be willing to allow anal play. I was always taught that was a no-go type of zone. Yet, many of my friends have stated just how great it was and that the orgasms are much stronger and tend to last a lot longer.

He brought up the fact that I had never done anal that I could possibly try starting out with a butt plug that is made for beginners, to help me to get accustomed to what it would feel like to actually have him in there. I did a lot of research on the types of butt plugs and what is best for a beginner, how to get prepared for one, and so much more. I had researched so much that I was actually starting to get scared about what I had been reading.

The first thing that I did after that point was go into my local adult toy store and ask questions. The sales person was really thorough with all the answers to my questions and I was led back into a room that contained so many adult toys, it could have almost been a warehouse of dildos. I was led to a section that contained butt plugs. The first thing I noticed is that they ranged in sizes. From tiny no more than 1 inch around to huge more than 5 inches around. They had beginner packages that contained a numbing agent, lubricant and the butt plug, and there were even some that just came by itself. There were oddities when it came to butt plugs such as some that had tails or spikes, some that vibrated, and some that were waterproof and made of glass.

Finally, I took a chance and found a small, jelly type of butt plug that I would be able to practice with. It was small and blue. It was no more than 2 inches around. I also purchased a water-based lubricant and I purchased a numbing lube as well called AnalEase. I will not lie I was overly nervous about anything going in that area as there have been stories about things that happen that are not the most hygienic.

So according to the websites that I read, it is best to use the bathroom and then shower before using a butt plug. I decided to follow the protocol and I made sure that I was looking the best that I could for this experience. My boyfriend, being the great guy that he is made sure that I stayed calm for the whole experience. The first thing was to apply the AnalEase which is a lubricant that is used to numb the nerves for use of anal toys. It has to be inserted with a finger which was quite awkward. It numbs you just enough to where it will not hurt, but not enough that you cannot feel the sensations from the nerves.

The feelings of his fingers in my hind end was an odd experience to start with. It took a few minutes but I had really begun to relax and allow the sensations to take over. He then removed his fingers and applied my water-based lubricant to the toy and a little to my butt. I then felt him press the butt plug against my rectum. There was a lot of pressure at first, but he went slowly enough to allow me to adjust to the sensations that I was experiencing. Eventually the butt plug had been inserted and I stayed still for a moment to allow my body to be completely adjusted before any other types of pleasure could happen.

Eventually, the sensations of the butt plug moving with other movements allowed for some intense pleasure during intercourse and even foreplay. Just bumping the butt plug allowed for there to be increased sensations from the nerve endings in my rectum. It was if my whole body was on fire from the orgasms that I was having. When we had finished with our session, the removal of the butt plug was also very easy. Although I was overly sensitive when it was removed. The pressure of having it in me for an extended amount of time did cause a bit of soreness afterwards. That is one thing that they do not prepare anyone who uses a butt plug for. There will be soreness after it is used, especially if it is your first time ever having anything in that area.

You will want to be sure that after you are done playing with the butt plug that you clean it thoroughly otherwise you could end up with an infection. You will want to use warm water and a toy cleaner, which is best, but if not be sure to use a soft soap that will not destroy the plastic or jelly material of the butt plug. You also want to let it air dry because using a towel can leave lint and fuzz on the toy. Once you have cleaned and dried it, be sure to store it in a place or package that will keep it clean. I have a small plastic container that I put mine in.

Butt plugs now a favorite

After using a butt plug for the first time, it has become a favorite toy for me and my boyfriend, especially when we have enough time to really enjoy the experience. I have moved up in size now and eventually I hope to keep moving up in size. It is a unique experience that everyone should try at least once.

Releasing Hot Passion With Katrina

Prostate Massager By Sweetoy

I was introduced to this next sex toy with very few details. I was handed a beautiful light grey tone bag, and told to “Have fun with Sweetoys new Prostate Massager”, I was excited, to say the least. Katrina was provided for review by our friends at Dongguan Sweetoy Co Ltd which is a brand that is made by the manufacturing company Wang Shing Sex Toys Co Ltd. You won’t be disappointed in any products from Sweetoys. This was not going to be my first Sweetoy, but this one was new and different!

What’s In A Name?

I waited till I got home to open and inspect it thoroughly. Upon inspection I was in awe over this beautiful Prostate Massager, a remote was also included “exciting” says my partner glancing at the new sex toy. The bag also contained a small pictographic manual, nothing with a name? Hrmm? What am I supposed to call my new friend? I like to know the names of whom I’m getting intimate with. I searched the sex toy itself. Re looked through the Pictographic manual, it just explained the odd looking forked end to its Massager. I had already guessed how the soft Bident end of the base to this massager worked. It’s a two tine fork almost that runs along the base of this Sweetoy. It’s actually pretty genius; each of the soft silicone ends add the most tantalising sensations to the perineum and scrotum. You simply slide the scrotum in-between the easily spread forked end and let yourself enjoy the incredible sensations this sex toy provides. I could go on about the fun to be had with this sex toy, but I needed to know its name.

I had to email the big bosses to see if someone could offer me an introduction to this sex toy. I had found out that Sweetoys had just recently updated their packaging to display the product’s name in rose gold letters clearly on the front with a classically beautiful black box. The Prostate Massager is carefully placed inside the box in a tray and it also includes a flannelette bag so you can store the sex toy safely away. But to be honest, I was slightly disappointed with the name it was given. This Prostate Massager was called “Katrina”, yes Katrina? It just didn’t make sense, why this name, isn’t Katrina the loudest girl at every party?

I have always enjoyed the names that Sweetoys have come up with in the past. I don’t know why I questioned this one so much, but it did. I started looking into the meanings and origins of the name Katrina. After a little digging, it is a really fitting name for this particular sex toy, perhaps a bit deep but fitting.

Anal Play – I Did It My Way!

Fun Factory Flexi Felix Anal Beads In Black

Some of my most treasured possessions in my sex toy drawer(s) worthy of being saved in the unlikely event of a house fire include my anal toys. I find these toys to be the most used and loved in my solo and partnered sex life-there are so many different options that each lead to a uniquely pleasurable experience. Butt toys are a great way of experimenting with anal play and are particularly appropriate for those who may have some reluctance with this type of play.

I am proud to admit that 80% of my bootie toy collection consists of Fun Factory products. There are many reasons why I am a huge fan of Fun Factory’s amazing anal product line, their high quality, funky designs and potential for inducing exquisite pleasure being the obvious highlights.

My Favourite Sex Toy Is My Hand
Image: My Favourite Sex Toy

Fun Factory are a German based sex toy company, producing quirky, playful and amazing quality sex toys at affordable prices. They are made from medical grade silicone which I have found to have its own unique texture. Unlike other brands that have a silky-smooth feel, the silicone that Fun Factory use for their products is slightly textured and grabby. It feels amazing and is great when used with a high-quality water based lubricant such as Pjur Back Door Comfort Water Based Anal Glide. Medical Grade Silicone is a non-porous material which means it’s very hygienic hence great for anal play. With waterproof anal toys, I highly recommend using a foaming toy cleaner such as Wicked Foam n Fresh to keep them spick and span.

Safety is paramount when experimenting with toys and anal play. Unlike a woman’s vagina, the anus and gastrointestinal system is long and there is much larger room for error (To put it simply, you can lose things up there!!). To avoid a trip to the emergency department, it is vital that any toys you are using for anal play have a wide base and solid handle that is easy to hold onto so as to avoid missing toys.

Flexi Felix Anal Beads

To be perfectly honest, I used to have some big judgements of the Flexi Felix Anal Beads. I couldn’t understand what Fun Factory were thinking creating a butt toy with a weird alien head handle (According to Fun Factory, it is actually a beetle head). It freaked me out and I never actually opened the box until a few months of working in the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres. Well you know the saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover?” This is exactly what I insist customers do when I present them with the Flexi Felix as I believe that once you really check them out, you will agree that they are amazing anal beads!! Their elongated shape means they are really comfortable to insert and remove. This is super important when it comes to any sex toy especially anal beads and means they are perfect for anal bead beginners. Flexi Felix Anal Beads are 32cms in total length and are available in black or pink.

Bootie Butt Plugs

The Bootie Butt Plug is a toy I hold near and dear to my heart as it was the first but plug I ever owned-my first introduction to butt toys in fact (I know, a very sweet story…Hold back your tears). Fun Factory have uniquely designed these toys, straying away from the traditional straight plugs and creating a curved plug with a tapered end that is a comfortable and snug fit. The base is intended to sit comfortably between your butt cheeks and is long enough to hold on to with ease. The Bootie plugs are available as singles in small, medium and large or in a box set with all three. The small is perfect for absolute beginners at 7.5cm in length and 2.5cm girth. The medium at 9.3cm length and 3.5cm width is a decent step up for intermediate users and the large at 11.1cm length and 4cm width is perfect for those who are experienced anal play peeps.

B Balls

What do you get when you combine a Kegel exerciser and butt toy?! The Fun Factory B Balls of course!! The latest addition to my collection, this toy is stepping up to favourite position due to the exquisite pleasure it brings to my life. The B Balls are available in single or double, with each ball featuring a weighted ball within which creates a subtle shaking and vibrating-like sensation when moved around-no batteries required either! The pulsations of this travel through your body, a unique feeling that I am sure both men and women will love just as much as I do. The B Balls are available in Black/Red or Purple/White. The only part of these toys I will fault is the design not being smooth all over. I am not a fan of any sex toys that have cracks or creases, especially anal toys and these do. Prior to use, I would recommend anal douching and giving them a thorough cleaning after use, ensuring to not miss these spots.

P-Spot Beyond Pleasure!

Man Wearing Underwear

I don’t need to explain to the homosexual readers of this blog the pleasures that come from the prostates involvement in your sexual activities. This article is for the hetero-curious men and couples out there reading. It is about opening up to find pleasure and equality through the prostate.

From the beginning of our sexual explorations and curiosities we learn from what we see, and as the prostate is unseen it is rarely spoken about. Not to mention the “Taboo” associated with anal play. The stigma that men who participate in anal play must be gay.. is too long outdated and is in serious need of a new outlook. The act of a man participating in a prostate orgasm allows for a man to step outside of the societal gender roles and hand the power over to his female partner. Too rarely does a man ever get to experience the receptive part or sex, all too often they take the common role of “Pitching” and leave the “Catching” or receptive aspect of sex to their female partners. This ideology is what I believe to be a huge factor in why the notion of gender roles are as they are currently.

A mutual knowledge of the vulnerability/ the expected role of a woman starts from experiencing two sides of the same coin. In this particular topic, penetration is the coin. For a man who has never experienced penetration on himself, he might intellectually understand the need for the “warm-up” before penetration, however, nothing can demonstrate its importance as well as experiencing it first hand. There’s always a clearer perspective that comes from personal experience.

What Is A Prostate You Ask?

The prostate is a small gland made up of mostly muscle tissue that sits around the base of the bladder. Its main function is to secrete fluids that are mixed with the Semen from the Vas Deference during orgasm. This is the most important piece of information for this article. A man’s prostate is most active at the moment leading to orgasm when pressure is added to the already pulsing Prostate gland creates an even more powerful ejaculate which heightens the feeling of orgasm. This reason alone should be enough to intrigue any man!

Through prostate orgasm, a man is able to reach multiple orgasms… Yes, I said it! A man can have multiple orgasms too! It is not just for the ladies.

Benefits Beyond Pleasure

When you engage the prostate with massage/added pressure, as I previously said allows for larger ejaculation orgasms. This helps to empty and refresh the prostate. It also encourages blood flow to the pelvic area, this helps to fight impotence. Yes playing with this little gland can help ensure you have healthy erections well into agedness. There is also a ton of research being done currently as to how having a regularly refreshed prostate lowers the potential risk of prostate cancer found so commonly in men. There are many other health benefits of a prostate massage.

How To Engage In Prostate Stimulation?

The prostate can be stimulated by adding pressure to the anatomy of the perineum (the space between the testicles and the anus. However direct contact from inside is always more intimate with greater effects. The prostate can be reached by inserting one finger into the anus approximately 1.5-2 inches tip of the finger pointing to the naval and rolling your finger in a come hither motion. You should feel a squishy marble as you do this, that’s the prostate. Very easy to find. Keep in mind the skin around the anal opening is very sensitive and can tear very easily. EXTRA Lube is necessary. Start with a warm up; caress the outside of the anus (the anus has as many nerve ending as any other erogenous zone). Try stroking the penis, as the penis gets erect the blood flow around the prostate will also increase created a heightened pleasure sense. For more information, read our guide to finding the prostate.

Effects On The Relationship

For hetero-normative couples, it is understandable how “flipping” the roles could potentially have some uncharted territory. But that’s no reason to avoid or judge something. Especially something that has so much potential. Communication is key! You are in this together! Sex is more than just procreation. Sex is also about pleasure and as discussed has countless health benefits. What this will allow or aid in with couples in establishing compassion, empathy and understanding towards each other. It may not eliminate gender based unfairness or sexism, it does have the ability to open equal understanding and dialogue.

If you’re open enough to try a new world of pleasure, just remember to relax, have fun. It’s VERY NORMAL. Millions of men and women worldwide have already found the amazing pleasure to be had from this great pleasure zone. Everyone should want to be on the same page as their partner

Anal Sex Guide

Fun Factory Bootie Set Anal Sex Toy Photo

I recently had a customer come into one of the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres asking for a good lubricant for anal play. She described feeling “excruciating pain” when attempting to have penetrative anal sex with her partner and was looking for a product so they could do so successfully. Although products exist that reduce sensitivity around your butt, they are not magic cures to make excruciating anal sex feel good. My heart broke a little when I heard her experience as I could relate to her painful attempts to try anal sex and have it become a traumatising event. My early efforts at anal sex were met with the worst pain I’d ever experienced followed by days of discomfort! I feel fortunate to now know that this certainly doesn’t need to be the case!!  I am so excited to share some wisdom I’ve encountered along the way so that your anal experiences can be memorable in the best possible way. I speak from a woman’s point of view however the majority of these tips are appropriate for people of any gender and sexual identity seeking to dive deeper into anal play.

  • Relax and breathe: This is so important. Stress and tension can prevent anal sex from being the incredible experience it is capable of being therefore ensuring you begin with a relaxed and excited head space free of expectations is key. Sex doesn’t need be taken so seriously, make sure you have fun with it!!
  • Anal training and foreplay: Prior to jumping straight into full blown anal penetration, I highly recommend putting time into anal training and foreplay. Rimming and fingering are some great ways to get warmed up to anal sex and having some quality butt toys can make the experience really exciting. The Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres and Adultsmart have some amazing products perfect for getting your butt prepared for anal sex. Like the Fun Factory Bootie Set which includes 3 different sized butt plugs made from body safe silicone. These are great at gradually expanding your bottoms capacity, making anal sex possible, better and pleasurable.
  • What if he pulls his penis out and it’s dirty? Maybe this is too much information but I can tell you I’ve heard this fear voiced so many times by anal curious customers, so much so that I have come up with 2 answers to automatically rattle off.  #1 If someone wants to have sex with your butt, then this is a possibility they must be ok with. #2 Douche!! Cleaning your bottom out before partaking in bootie action will eradicate a lot of this fear however if you or your partner are far from ok with the possibility of mess then this will result in anxiety and tension (Remember the 1st point…not good!). This brings me to my next point…
  • A supportive partner: Whoever you choose to enjoy anal sex with, it is vital that there is a clear line of communication between you both. Being able to voice any discomforts, fears or worries before, during and after anal sex (and any sexual act for that matter) is key to an enjoyable, fulfilling and pleasurable experience. Anal sex can make you feel extremely vulnerable, often bringing up intense feelings and emotions which is why mutual trust and respect is vital.

  • Be prepared! A good quality lubricant is really important to ensure comfortable anal penetration. Pjur Back Door Relaxing Silicone Anal Glide is a popular choice, with silicone lubricants my favourites. Unlike water based lubricants that usually feel sticky, your body doesn’t absorb silicone meaning constant reapplication is not necessary. That means less fumbling around for you both and more emphasis put on making the experience enjoyable. Intimate Earth Anal Relaxing Serum is a product I would recommend to people if they need something to relax their bottoms. It includes natural ingredients and doesn’t have a numbing effect like other products on the market. I also recommend keeping a couple of towels handy just in case. Enough said.

  • Clitoral stimulation: Clitoral stimulation can be a really great way of relaxing your body whilst having anal sex. It also means greater pleasure as having your butt stimulated amplifies your orgasms to astronomical heights. A sex toy in your vagina can also be extremely gratifying but it does mean that it’s going to feel a lot tighter which could potentially be uncomfortable. I recommend having a few toys handy in case the desire arises to mix it up.
  • Get to know your own butt through self-exploration: I am a huge advocate of women and men getting to know their own bodies before being intimate with another. It can be a really empowering thing to know what your body’s capabilities are so that the road to reaching greater experiences with another can be shown.
  • Anal sex is pleasurable: Last but most certainly not least, anal sex is a pleasurable experience, not a painful one!! I can’t stress this point enough as I have spoken with countless women who believe that to have anal sex means to feel pain. Pain is your body’s way of protecting you from harm and when these messages are ignored then the repercussions can be horrible. Anal fissures & tears, bleeding, difficulties when going to the toilet, and unnecessary discomfort are just some of the issues that can occur from ignoring your body’s pain signals. During anal play, there may be a tightness or fullness experienced in your bottom which is perfectly normal however if pain is felt and is not going away, then take some time to slow it down or stop all together. Your body will thank you for it.

The staff in the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres specialise in all things sex and pleasure so if reading this has you excited to try anal sex, come in and speak to staff about some of the products and sex toys that will make your experience as enjoyable as it should be.
