But before you rush out and buy your own butt plug, you should educate yourself on how to do it right the first time. This guide offers information to help make it a pleasurable experience that will leave you wanting more. Welcome to a world of great possibilities!
It is extremely important to clean your toys thoroughly before and after each use. If your toy is made from non-porous materials such as stainless steel, glass or silicone and does not have a motor, you can properly disinfect it by placing it in boiling water for 3-5 minutes or run it through the dishwasher (by themselves) on the sanitize setting without detergent. Using condoms also helps with quick clean up. Make sure the materials you are purchasing is free of phthalates – chemicals added to a synthetic material to increase its plasticity. It is also best to avoid toys made from PVC, vinyl, or jelly rubber materials. However, if you do happen to use these cover them with a condom and never share these porous or latex anal toys as the risk of transmitting infections, viruses or bacteria is high.
Using a butt plug for the first time does not have to be challenging thanks to the wide range of sizes available. Your first butt plug should be the same size or just wider than your middle finger. You can purchase an anal training kit with a range of sizes that will help you work up to a larger gauge. Yes, even the tiny one will give you the stimulating pleasure you want. Rounder and straighter plugs give you that filled-up feeling while the curvier ones are best for prostate stimulation. The tip of the anal plug should be tapered and rounded so it is as easy as possible to begin insertion. The smoother the butt plug is, the smoother the insertion process will be. No matter what your preference is, make sure the plug has a large, flared base to prevent your anus from accidentally swallowing it. It is recommended not to wear it for longer than two to three hours. Prolonged used can cause damage or ulcers given that the plug’s design pinches the lining between the anal sphincter and toy. If you notice any pain, bleeding or discomfort you should remove your plug immediately. Remember this is meant to be pleasurable, not uncomfortable.
To get started, slow and steady wins the race. The rectum is much more sensitive than your vagina and can easily tear or become irritated so taking your time will result in a much more enjoyable experience. Until you are comfortable taking in a whole butt plug, we recommend you try it solo to get used to the sensation. Good positions to use are laying on your side, on all fours (doggy style) or in a squatting position. Everyone one is different with their preferred position so try them all and see which one works best for you. It may help to start with your finger and lube, gently insert a finger into the anus and allow a little time to explore. Once you are ready, insert the plug slow and steady. Point your butt plug towards the anal opening, angling it upwards slightly towards your stomach then lightly push in the tip. Some discomfort is normal, but if you feel any pain at this point stop immediately. Gradually and gently push in the rest of the plug, its ok if you don’t succeed the first time, it is common for this to take a few tries. Keep it up, try again the next day and the day after that until you are able to take it all in. Although you can go from vagina to anus, do not to go from anus to vagina to prevent infections.
Don’t forget to lube your anus before inserting your butt plug with a water or silicone base lubricant. However, if your toy is made from silicone, then use a water based lubricant instead as silicone lubes can melt the surface and create a small chasm in the toy.
Now that you have read this handy information, get out there, plug in and enjoy the wonderful world of anal stimulation that will intensify those orgasms. Whether it is for warm up, anal sex or expanding your rectum, the possibilities are endless. Experiment and have fun.
