Anal plugs, also called butt plugs, are a perfect way to introduce anal play into your sex life. These sex toys are like dildos, but they're designed for your anus to maximize pleasure. One of the biggest differences is that an anal toy has a flared base, so it stays snugly in place at the sphincter and in your rectum. Anal plugs are body-safe, and typically made out of materials like glass or stainless steel to avoid health risks and to keep your sexy time as sexy as ever.
Absolutely! Spencer’s offers a wide range of anal plugs for men and women in assorted colors, sizes and shapes, so you can customize your plug to match your sexual pleasure. Some are decorative and can be jeweled or feature a furry tail, which some people love because it may lead to some sexy roleplay. While jeweled butt plugs are simply for aesthetic purposes, they're still quite popular among different people. Other plugs even glow in the dark, so once you’ve got it securely in place, dim the lights and let your lusty side take over. If you're still unsure of which plug is right for you, then you could also consider other anal toys, like anal beads or anal dildos.
Well, everyone is different, so the answer will depend on your anal sex experience level, mood and body. It’s always a good idea to start small with a beginner butt plug, so you can get used to what it feels like. Our butt plugs range from three inches to seven and a half; we even have anal training kits, so your body can adjust to taking larger and larger sizes, which can be the perfect preparation for anal sex with your partner. Even a three or four-inch ribbed plug can provide a huge amount of sensation when inserted into the anus, which is rich with nerve endings. For men, anal play can activate an area called the prostate (or P spot) and heighten their orgasms, which is why a prostate massager can really make a difference in the bedroom. Depending on the material used to make the anal toy, such as glass or silicone, you may experience different sensations. What plug to use also varied based on how long you plan to wear it; if you are keeping it strictly to the bedroom, then go for any length; if you’ll be wearing it while out and about, then you may want to opt for a smaller size so your body can get used to the sensation.
It’s important to note that there’s more to these anal sex toys than just size. Butt plugs deliver all sorts of different erotic sensations that can improve your sex life and show you new ways of getting off. Stainless steel plugs offer a firm, hard sensation, while silicone toys are slightly softer for those times where you want a more sensual experience. Using a We-Vibe vibrating butt plug during intercourse or other erotic stimulation can lead to an explosive orgasm as your different erogenous zones work together. Plugs that don’t vibrate can be used by you or your partner, whether they twist it around or guide it in and out.
Yes, you should always pair your plug and any other butt toys with anal lube since the anus doesn’t self-lubricate. With a mere dab of lube, you’ll be assured that the insertion process goes smoothly, though you still want to go slowly with your butt play. Remember: Anal pleasure is all about the journey, not the destination. Silicone lubricant often lasts longer; however, it should NOT be used with butt plugs made from silicone or latex condoms, and it may also cause irritation if left on for too long. Because of this, we often recommend water-based lubes in general. Water-based lube is also stainless, so you won't have to worry about it ruining your sheets! That’s what we call a double win!
The answer is simple: Definitely! While there are plenty of people who use them for masturbation, butt plugs can be used on their own or combined with intercourse or kinky sex acts like spanking. It all depends on what type of intimacy you want most, and how you want to be pleasured anally. Butt plugs can also be paired with a vibrator or cock ring, depending on whether you have a vagina or penis respectively.
If you want to wear a butt plug during vaginal intercourse, then a vibrating butt plug can help heighten your pleasure. The vibration will stimulate your rectum as your partner has their way with you, hitting your G-spot and creating a mind-blowing experience that will have you moaning all night long. You could even consider other toys, like anal beads, to help please and tease you in all the right ways.
You should be cleaning your butt plug after each use, for obvious reasons. The first step could be to wash the plug off with warm water, though you should also spend time cleaning it with an anti-bacterial toy cleaner. This will ensure that the plug is completely clean, and ready for your next session of butt play.
It's also important to make sure your body is clean, as well, and sometimes that takes more than just defecation. Fetish Fantasy offers an enema, which is a rectal cleaner that can also double as a douche. This unique device is curved to properly fit inside your body, and can squirt water inside to help make you feel clean and keep your sexual health in check.
From jeweled to extra-large plugs, Spencer's offers toys for any sexual experience. Anal plugs can make the perfect addition to any sex toy collection, whether you want to create a more intimate time with your partner or with yourself. Keep in mind that most sex toys with a flared base are safe for anal play, but we strongly recommend purchasing a toy specifically designed to stay outside the sphincter. So if you're ready to try an anal plug for the first time or you want to take the next step and get one that's larger, Spencer's is here for all of your sex shopping needs. And don't forget to grab condoms and lube while you're here, too!
