Do you want to explore anal play? Butt plugs can add increased stimulation during partnered or solo sex. Wearing a butt plug can enhance pleasure and orgasms. The anus and rectum has sensitive nerve endings. It is important to make sure you choose a butt plug that has a flared or wider base.
What is a butt plug?
A butt plug is an anal sex toy that is inserted into the anus during sex. Butt plugs are made from materials like silicone, glass or metal and come in different sizes. Beginner butt plugs can less than an inch wide at their thickest point and more advanced plugs can be 3-inches wide or more. The shape of the butt plug holds them in place so you can wear them. They have a small tapered tip for easy penetration. Some have vibrating features that can be controlled by remote or through an app. For fetish lovers, some butt plugs come with tails attached for pet play.
How to use:
Wash your butt plug after every use with hot soapy water and let air dry. Do not share your butt plugs with anyone. If your butt plug is non-porous like stainless steel or silicone then you can disinfect by boiling water for about 10 minutes. Always use a water based or silicone lubricant. However, if your butt plug is made from silicone, then use a water based or oil based lubricant because silicone lubricant can ruin the surface of the butt plug.
If you experience and pain, bleeding or prolonged discomfort, take out the plug immediately. If the feeling persists, make sure to consult your doctor.
Some warning signs include: bleeding, cramps, bloating and prolonged pain. If you experience any of these consult your doctor immediately!
If you happen to lose a plug inside the anus make sure to visit your doctor. It may seem embarrassing but it is the only way to get it out. Do not feel bad: doctors and nurses are used to these things, but it’s important not to hide what happened and hope or the plug to get out on its own. If an anal toy is lost inside the body the only way to get it out is by the doctor.
