Hold on, what’s that? Butt plugs you say?
Sexual pleasure isn’t confined the genitals – if you’re new to the world of anal stimulation come in and take a seat. The anus is rich in nerve endings that when stimulated properly, can be immensely pleasurable. I’ve personally used dozens of different butt plugs. Big, small, tailed, jeweled, steel, and glass. I’ve tried them all. Here is my list, of the best butt plugs.
Butt Plug Reviews
This is definitely the #1 butt plug. While it definitely carries a premium price-tag, it also has a bunch of features. Firstly, it vibrates. The vibrations can directly hit the prostate for men and carry through into the vagina for women. The best part, you can turn it on wirelessly. Out for dinner and want to get warmed up before heading home. Simply use the wireless remote. No need to run to the bathroom. If you want to be extra kinky, you could even let a partner carry the remote.
The Nexus Ace has six different funtions, all of them quite. It’s made from silicone which is ideal. The butt plug itself is USB rechareable which is great. However, the remote it comes with does require batteries.
Overall, this is a fantastic little product. I’ve never regret the purchase and I don’t think you will either.
Lovehoney has recently began creating their own of brand products. They are suprisingly good considering their lower price point. The aptly named, “Butt Tingler,” is their best butt plug option.

It also looks really neat and I love showing it off. Now I know what you’re thinking, glass in the butt, what? Glass is actually one of the best sex toy materials. When properly tempered, glass is really difficult to break. It still may chip if you drop it on a hard floor, but it won’t shatter. I haven’t personally tried it but hitting it with a sledgehammer would likely shatter it.

This is definitely the most affordable option.
Different Types of Butt Plugs
There are a ton of different types of butt plugs to choose from. Here are the most popular.
Butt Plug Material
Butt plugs, like most sex toys, come in a variety of different materials. These materials range from rubber, stainless steel, aluminum, wood, glass, silicone, TPE, ABS plastic, Jelly, PVC and a few others.
That said, I suggest sticking to ABS plastic, silicone, or glass. These materials are non-porous, very easy to clean, and won’t hold onto potentially harmful bacteria or smells.
What Is A Butt Plug?
Butt plugs are designed to slide inside the anus to activate the ultra-sensitive nerve ending and increase sexual stimulation. Once placed in the anus they can be left, hands-free, for a period of time either as a warm-up for anal sex or extra stimulation during sex.
They differ from dildos and vibrators as they’re usually much smaller and have a flared base. Often the plug head is round or oval shaped for easier insertion and removal.
Butt plugs are available in different colors, shapes, and sizes to suit your tastes from small standard teardrops to crystal-embellished knobs and even fox fur tails.
The internal part is usually made from silicone as it’s easy to lube up and clean after use, but you can buy stainless steel or safety glass too which are great for temperature play.
Another possibility is a vibrating butt plug which can bring a whole new world of pleasure. Vibrating butt plugs can stimulate the prostate in men and the G-spot in women. A true multi-purpose sex toy.
Why Use A Butt Plug?
There are a few reasons why some men and women swear by butt plugs. Firstly, just simple sexual pleasure. Men and women both have a ton of nerve ending just inside your bums. Similar to the G-spot in women, men have a P-spot, or prostate that the butt plug can stimulate.
Because they can feel really good and extra naughty. Similar to not wearing underwear, it feels dangerous, sexy, and hot. For me, it works as great foreplay.
Another common reason is preparing yourself for anal sex, especially first-time anal. The first time you have a penis in your butt, it feels a bit, awkward. We’ve all heard the horror stories of painful anal sex. This can be avoided with proper preparation.
Some men worry their sexuality is in question if they fancy trying a butt plug. Not true. Whether they are gay, straight or bi – folk from all walks of life enjoy anal stimulation.

How To Use a Butt Plug
Some folk find it’s a good idea to wear a butt plug for a while before combining it with sex, so the feelings are not overwhelming. I like to do simple household tasks like loading the dishwasher wearing a butt plug to break the monotony of plate stacking. You get used to the feeling and how it affects your body.
If you’re experienced in butt play, try taking it to the next level with vibrating butt plugs, prostate stimulators, and even eggs. They all add an extra dimension of stimulation – you’ll be as frisky as a lamb.
How to Insert a Butt Plug
- Lay on your back, it’s the most natural position to insert and remove from. Get yourself really comfortable. Especially if you’re new to the wonderful world of anal stimulation. Like sex, it can be a bit scary and be overwhelming your first time.
- Lube up yourself and the toy(water-based lubes please). Don’t be shy with the lubricant.
- Grasp the handle or base of the toy and slowly push it inside your anus. Spreading your cheeks with your other hand can make it a bit easier.
- Once you find a comfortable position you’re good to go. It really is as simple as that.
WHEN REMOVING THE BUTT PLUG PLEASE GO SLOWLY. Overtime the lubrication can diminish. If you yank on it too hard you’re just asking for trouble.
Lube is essential because neither men nor women produce any sort of anal lubrication. Using a butt plug without lube is just asking for trouble in the form of tears and bleeding.
Butt plugs can be used as a warm-up for anal sex as they relax the sphincter muscles or as they can be used as the main event. Masturbation, vaginal sex, oral sex, going out for dinner to make you feel extra naughty – butt plug play is limitless.
Are Butt Plugs Safe?
Butt plugs are safe if you follow two golden rules.
- Always buy from a reputable seller. Cheap imports made of substandard materials may break or be unhealthy for body contact.
- It must have a flared base. This is in effect a handle and a stop which prevents the plug slipping too far into the rectum. The flared base must always remain outside your body to make removal easy and safe. Objects lodged in your rectum may need surgical removal so always, always respect the base.
If you’re covered on those aspects – go enjoy your butt plug without fear.
How long can I wear a butt plug?
I’m not a doctor nor do I know your body better than you, this is just my experience. Theoretically, the only time you really need to remove the plug is when you need to poop. I know some women who wear them to work or to sleep. As long as you’re not hindering your body from it’s natural processes, you should be okay.
Did you know ancient civilizations also used butt plugs? Some dating from 200BC have been unearthed in China recently. People have been stimulating the butt for centuries because it feels so good, so don’t be shy if you’re considering the wonderful world of butt plugs – there’s a whole lot of sexy fun just waiting to be discovered.
