A Twisted Fun Toy For Anal Plugging

Woman reading for anal play

Today, I will be talking about the new Gplug Twist! Firstly, I always notice the packaging being the anal retentive person I am (no pun intended). Packaging and presentation are always a huge factor in my decisions on a product, if a company goes to the lengths to manage their brand and image in such a way that always compliments their products then that’s a tick from me.

In this day of age branding is what people use to determine the quality of a product, no matter how much people want to argue, first impressions do count and we do judge books by their cover. Packaging can say a lot about the company, if a company is willing to put a significant amount of time into the quality of their packing then you can almost feel confident that the product is also up to that standard in material as well. It definitely sets the tone for any future purchases you will make next time you walk into any Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centre.

My First Impression Of The GPlug Twist

My first impressions of the Gplug Twist was that I automatically felt confidence in the quality of this product, I instantaneously felt comfortable to use this product knowing this would be a sex toy would be made of quality materials and in fact it is! The Gplug Twist is made of premium class hypoallergenic silicone. There are generally three categories of medical grade silicone; non-implantable, short term implantable and long term implantable. Materials that are classed as class V or VI can be considered medical grade, most medical grade silicones are at least classed as VI certified. Being that the creators of the Funtoys London company, Jack Romanski and his wife come from a background in engineering and specialising in silicones for the space industry, this gives me confidence in the quality materials used for the brand’s products.

This Sex Toy Is Body Safe But Be Careful Of Other “Novelty Use Only” Sex Toys!

Before I worked at Oh Zone I didn’t pay overly much attention to materials used in sex toys, I was just lucky because I have a 5 star taste in quality and packaging. That is what I used to my advantage and nearly all the toys I had bought prior to working here were in fact body safe silicones. But the sad fact is that most toys on the market are not deemed to be used as sex toys and states on the packaging “novelty use only” this is to cover the legalities of misuse. I thought being in Australia meant that we already had all the strict laws on the use of materials and packaging in products but it shocked me that the sex toy industry isn’t regulated by the same safety laws. So the fact that some companies are putting the safety of their customers first and using only premium quality and medical grade silicone is a weight lifted off my chest, and companies I will definitely recommend to my customers. At the end of the day, if I don’t feel worthy of using a product myself I won’t sing its praises to my customers either.

Another benefit on using this particular quality of silicone is that as a material on its own it is used as a sound dampener, which means its super quiet!

My Personal Experience With The Gplug Twist

I haven’t had much experience in the art of butt plugging, but in my short time I have experienced a couple of little plugs. Although, I do enjoy anal sex, plugging is completely different to me and I find inserting a plug not always the easiest of situations to be in. Now, the main reason for using a butt plug isn’t for thrusting, or to be moved internally – the purpose for a butt plug is to make you feel full. It allows you to experience other sexual activities or even to go about your daily life, with the knowledge and feeling that you have a plug inside filling you up.

I was slightly hesitant when I received the Gplug Twist to review for you all, being because I have never used a ribbed plug or one of this size (it’s not huge I’d say more small to medium sized but just not a size I have used before). However, it sat in my handbag for a few days, if anyone actually went through my handbag I guarantee they would be in for a shock. Eventually, I plucked up the courage to try this twisted plug, and I must say with the use of lube (which is always incredibly important when it comes to anal) it glided in fairly easy with only slight force needed. As per the website, I used their advice and I twisted the plug as I inserted it as a bonus instead of stretching straight away it slowly stretched which made for a much more comfortable and less scary insertion.

Once in the ribs were fantastic, your body molds itself around the ribs for added pleasure especially when the vibrations were turned on.

As for using the plug while having sex not only was it stimulating for me, but the fullness I felt was also pleasurable for my partner and the ribs were felt by him as well, and of course the vibrations didn’t go astray for either one of us.

Who Should Use The Gplug Twist?

Plugs are perfect for anyone who has wanted to experiment or has fantasized about double penetration, whether it’s the fantasy of two men pleasuring you or the pleasure of being filled up. The fullness mixed with the taboo nature anal play already has can be no only alluring but a major turn on.

Remember To Lube And Other Helpful Tips!

As a huge pointer LUBE, LUBE, LUBE, whatever amount you usually use double it! Trust me, it will make life so much more comfortable and only insert once you are already turned on, as that’s when your body is most relaxed.

And just for an added human anatomy lesson the anal cavity contains three muscle groups. If you were to gently push your finger in you will be able to feel the first one, insert half an inch more and you will reach the second one and finally the strongest muscle is a little over and inch inside. The last muscle is the one that causes the pain so this is where a lube applicator comes in handy to insert and reach all the way in! If when you insert the plug and it hurts remove straight away slowly try again and allow around 30 seconds for your body to come accustom to the sensation.

A huge thank you to Gvibe and Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres for bringing in the quality goods to the sex industry!

A Tight-arse’s Guide To Starting Anal Play

Anal sex with a woman

“That is an exit only” that used to be my catchcry. As a lady with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) the idea of engaging in any kind of anal play made me nervous.

However when I began to working at Oh! Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres my eyes were opened. Now I have begun my anal journey and I’m happy to be on it. What changed? Knowledge. So I am here to share some for any other nervous butts out there.

Cleaning Before Anal Play And Anal Sex

The main issue I hear with people about anal sex is the hygiene factor. And I get it, it was my main concern also. No matter what porn shows you have watched, anal sex has the potential to be a messy endeavour and so a good prepping (prepping is a slang term for preparing) routine is key to a clean experience.

You have a few options but the main two are a douche or an enema. They both do the same thing as far as squirting water up your bum but the douche uses less water (with the look of a big eye dropper, almost!) and gives more of a clean of the immediate and used area.

My preferred method is an enema, it uses a larger amount of water (the one I have connects to my tap) and generally does a deeper clean. With an enema you generally hold in the water for 5 or so minutes whereas with a douche it is normally pushed out a bit sooner.

Both of these products will help remove most matter from the anal cavity and will have you feeling fresh, clean and ready to play.

Personal Lubricant For Anal Play

When it comes to anal play lube isn’t optional. The anal cavity (unlike the vagina) isn’t naturally lubricating and because of that for any kind of enjoyable anal play session a good lube is a must.

For anal play a silicone or thick water based lubricant is best however why stop there? Thanks to some intelligent and thoughtful lube makers you can now purchase lubes that come with relaxant. Basically what this will do is help your anus relax and slightly loosen making insertion much easier.

This relaxant isn’t numbing so you will still have sensation. I think this is quite important when starting your anal journey. Something that numbs you completely will make it difficult to tell if you like or don’t like something and also if your body needs a break or possibly even if something has been torn it would be hard to tell until much later.

What To Consider When Choosing An Anal Sex Toy

Anal sex toys are extremely varied. Your choice really depends on what you are looking for in an anal experience. For some, it may be just a butt plug that they would like to use but for others (men) they may be more specifically looking for a prostate sex toy. They can come very small, very large and everything in between. The important thing when selecting a sex toy is that it is the right toy for you and where you are up to with your personal experience.

It is also important to consider the anal sex toy’s material. My rule for my own toys is that if it isn’t silicone, glass or something else that I can sterilise I won’t use it. Let’s be real for a second, this is going up your butt and you want to know when you are finished with it that it is clean. Read my article “Material Girl” to learn more about sex toy materials to find which one is right for you.

Parting Tips For Anal Play

  • Relax.
  • Only do it for yourself, it won’t be enjoyable for anyone if you are “just doing it for him”.
  • Take your time, go slow and communicate with your partner.
  • Have fun xoxo
