You may be wondering what a butt plug is. It is a sex toy that helps bring focus and stimulates the area around the anus, anal opening and the anus muscles. They are not gender-specific, and come in different sizes and shapes. Anyone can enjoy butt plugs. For this article we are going to keep the term general, anything involving Anal Play, other then dildos, is being refered to as a butt plug. There are different niches, types, and stimulations that can be explored.

1: How can Butt play help Health

For men this exercise helps keep a healthy prostate, reduces erectile dysfunction, reduces instances if premature ejaculation, and has been know over time to increase the size and intensity of erections.

In women focus and exercise in this area keeps muscle tone in the vaginal walls, or keep things “tight”, and increases vaginal lubrication, “wetness”.

In all humans a healthy PC muscle helps hold your organs in place, controls you bowels or bladder, keeps good blood flow to the muscles and nerve endings, which increase pleasure and orgasms. Pelvic floor muscle training exercises

The PC muscle is also a section of muscles (inner back thigh, PC, lower front and back muscles) that help the spine keep the proper “J” alignment. This is critical to walking, sitting, less back pain and can help control body weight.

Since there is so much you can learn about butt plugs, below are great reasons to try to use them and a few tips for incorporating plugs into play.

2: Plugs are versatile.

You know what is good about butts, we all have one. Irrespective of your gender, we all can use butt plugs. The anal opening has the highest concentration of nerve endings compared to the rest of the anal canal, so even the smallest plug can feel pleasurable at shallow depths.

Plugs make prostate stimulation a breeze.

If you or your partner has a penis, you can use a longer butt plug to stimulate the prostate, which is two to three inches inside the rectum on the belly side. Firm, curved toys are ideal for P-spotting, and it’s often easier to achieve and maintain constant pressure on the prostate with a plug as opposed to fingers or a penis.

Prostate stimulation creates a very different pleasurable sensation from external stimulation of the penis. Some people like to have their dicks played with while a plug is in, but others just focus on each area independently.

Plugs give you some G-spot action, too.

If you or your partner has a vulva, you can indirectly stimulate the G-spot through the thin lining that separates the vaginal and anal canals. Some people prefer to stimulate their G-spots this way, because it’s less intense on the G-spot itself and combines the pleasurable sensations of anal play with G-spotting.

You can also use most plugs during vaginal intercourse, and if your partner is penetrating you while the plug is in, the plug can create subtle pressure against the shaft, adding a whole new element of stimulation to the penis-in-vagina sex.

3: Be slow and gentle.

It is essential to go slow on the butthole before entering. Spend some time focusing on the outside part before going inside. Even though it’s generally good to warm up before any kind of penetrative play happens, the rectum is much more delicate than the vaginal canal.

There are two rings of muscle at the anal opening called the sphincter, and while you can consciously control the outer layer of the sphincter, the inner ring does not relax at your will. It’s easy to make this muscle tense if you are feeling anxious. Even when you’re taking your time, it’s still possible to tear or irritate the lining of the rectum, so pay attention to how your body responds to the stimulation you’re receiving.

4: Apply lube liberally.

Before you insert a penis, finger or sex toy, slather it in a lube. Unlike a vagina, the butt does not self-lubricate. Therefore, a lube is important. For anal play, use a silicone lubricant or a thick water base lubricant. This is because they are long lasting.

5: “Tip” your butt plug in.

One thing you need to put into consideration is that you cannot just shove the butt plug in there. It may be hard to pass it through the sphincter. Rather than inserting the plug perpendicularly to your body, consider inserting the tip upwards towards your belly and push it with your finger inwards. If it feels comfortable, continue pushing it inwards and keep applying lube in case you feel any friction.

6: Make sure to clean your butt plugs.

All sex toys need to be washed. They can be washed with warm water and soap that you use to wash your body. All the butt plugs should be cleaned after being used. However, if your sex toy is made of porous material, the toy cannot be disinfected.

This means that they cannot be used with multiple partners who are not fluid-bonded. This is because he viruses and bacteria can still live in the pores of the material. However, if the toy is non-porous, you can clean it by boiling it in water to disinfect. I like doing this to all my new sex toys just to be safe.
