Although intimidating to many, butt plugs can be enjoyable if the matter is approach properly. For the most part, whatever the shape and size one decides on depends greatly on what the persons preferences are. It is important that you know, not all butt plugs are made from the same materials. Also, they should all have some kind of flare on the base, which is for safety as it keeps it from edging its way all in. Both men and women use butt plugs for pleasuring themselves, whereas men are pleasured by the stimulation it gives to their prostate and women are pleasured from the way it puts pressure on the back side of the vaginal wall. When having an orgasm there will be sensations that are felt inside of the butt and having a butt plug up in there adds an additional sensation up there and makes all those sensations more intense in the butt. Of course, a butt plug is also used for the beginner to help break them in for having anal sex.
It is useful to use a lube whenever using a butt plug, especially for the beginner as unlike the vagina, the butt does not provide its own lubricant. Also, always remember to clean the toy(s) after using them, there are specific cleaners for sex toys to do this helps in the prevention of catching or spreading bacteria and/or STI’s. The main thing is to remember to begin at a slow and steady pace. It is our recommendation for beginners to read up on the anatomy of the butt and how it works in order to have a deeper understanding on what the reason is for a butt plug. Search for articles that discuss the “erogenous zone” and the “erotic nerve endings” in the anus, that are at the bum’s entry way.
Always keep in mind the following whenever you are preparing to for the insertion of a butt plug:
Start Out Slowly:
Prior to using the plug whether performing solo or with a partner, you should first stimulate your external muscles by messaging with a lubricate finger or another item of your choice. This foreplay is intended to benefit you by relaxing your anus before inserting the butt plug. Just remember to go slow, relax, make yourself comfortable, and use lots of lubrication. The reason lube is so significant and essential to stimulating the butt is because the butt does not have natural lubrication like the vagina does. It is recommended that a lube that has a thick consistency be used and a high viscosity or one can use a water-based gel.
NOTICE: lubrication’s that consist of a silicone based are to never be used with butt plugs made from silicone, the reason for that is due to silicone will stick to other things made of silicone resulting in damage to the product. Lastly, a beginner should always start out using the smallest butt plug and gradually work up to the larger ones.
