To enjoy sex, you have to have open communication with your partner, letting them guide you with what they want in bed and showing them the path to fulfilling your needs as well. While the choice is ultimately yours on what things you want to try and what are off-limits, you can always strive to explore new things to discover a sensual boost of pure euphoria.
The use of sex toys is not uncommon during sex; couples try them all the time, and on many occasions, sex toys such as lovely butt plugs or elegant dildos help you prepare for other fantasies like anal sex, double penetration, etc.
In this article, we will focus exclusively on butt plugs, discovering their many types and varying functions to help you in the journey of sexual enlightenment through a bit of elusive anal play.
WHAT IS A BUTT PLUG?
A butt plug is a sex toy designed explicitly for stimulating anal pleasure. They are a lot like dildos but less penetrative and shorter in size, featuring a somewhat cone-like structure. Unlike dildos, butt plugs are supposed to stay in one place during sex. Due to its smaller size, a butt plug will also have a wide base to protect the plug from ending up way too far in the rectum, and we want to avoid that to save us from a doctor’s visit.
HOW TO USE A BUTT PLUG:
There is a numerous range of butt plugs to select from according to what you like, but as a beginner, you want to avoid going the whole hog and stick to trying out the smaller-sized, less penetrating ones.
In this way, you will be preparing your body for anal sex, the butt plug keeping you stimulated and on edge throughout the day, such as by using a butt plug in public or during sex. A constant reminder of a butt plug euphorically placed inside you will loosen your nerves and promote your body to be relaxed for the time of anal sex, helping to prep for the sensations soon to come. Make sure you pour a generous amount of lubricant on the butt plug and around the anal opening to avoid irritating friction and begin exploring with the wide range of lustful anal sensations via the different types of butt plugs.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF BUTT PLUGS:
Butt plugs are available in different shapes and sizes, are made up of different materials, and have a unique set of functions, all of which we are going to discuss here:
GLASS BUTT PLUGS:
As the name suggests, glass butt plugs are your standard butt plugs but are made of glass. They are very pretty, and their base is usually designed with intricate styles and cuts and is available in different colors. The glass plugs are neat in appearance, are easy to clean, and perfect for a touch of temperature play. People who like the cold feel in their anal cavity prefer glass butt plugs; these plugs work well with all kinds of lubricants which is a significant advantage.
JEWEL BUTT PLUG:
These butt plugs are cute to look at. They appear to be similar to a normal butt plug, but a gem-like acrylic crystal is attached to their wide base, giving it a luxurious and fancy appearance. There are two to three shapes of jewel butt plugs ranging from small to large, which you can choose from depending on your comfort level, but regardless, the defining characteristic of a jewel butt plug is the beautiful gem.
INFLATABLE BUTT PLUGS:
The inflatable butt plug is made up of silicone, and it expands inside your booty. So if you are a beginner when it comes to the back hole and anal penetration, this is not for you. If you are not used to a more significant pressure pushing your insides apart, the different butt plugs will suit you better than the inflatable butt plug. This butt plug is for people who are experienced in anal play.
REMOTE CONTROL BUTT PLUGS:
People who are wild and want to have fun at all times would love the remote control butt plug. This works like a clitoral vibrator; you can give the remote control to your partner and wear the butt plug throughout the day, as the experience is controlled from afar. The unexpected vibration of the butt plug stimulated by the remote control in the hands of your partner will not just send an unexpected shiver up your whole spine, but it will remind you of your partner even when they are not present in your immediate vicinity. This will help you build anticipation for what is waiting for you when you are finally in each other’s presence, and is the key to hands-free fun.
LOCKABLE BUTT PLUGS:
The lockable butt plugs are also called chastity tools. The idea is driven from celibacy or locking your genitals but kinkier! The lockable but plug is designed in a way that gives it the appearance of a key. Once placed in the butt, you are supposed to turn it like you would turn a key, and it expands and locks in a place. Its continuous presence keeps you on edge and overstimulates you. The tool is made up of surgical steel, as it is supposed to stay inside your butt for the longest time. This tool is for people who have been trying anal play for a long and who have gained plenty of experience.
ANIMAL BUTT PLUGS:
This is a newer concept in the world of butt plugs, you can say. People of the new age are more into costume play and role play. They love to dress up and play the roles of different characters from movies and anime. This is where the animal but plug comes in handy. They have different furry butt plug tails attached to their broad base, giving it the appearance of the actual animal so you can play the perfect sex kitten role while making love and pursuing sexual endeavors.
SILICONE BUTT PLUGS:
These butt plugs, as the name suggests, are made of silicone. They are soft, easily penetrable, ideal for beginners, and give a skin-like realistic feel so as not to alarm the beginners.
They can be of the vibrating kind or come with a remote or app control, or might simply be made for penetration. Silicone-based butt plugs are ideally used with water-based lubes, do not use it with silicone lubricant as it might affect the material of your butt plug and render it useless in a short time.
Another type of silicone butt plug is the squeezable plug; the silicone used in this is softer than the rest and gets easily squished when your anal canal contracts. When put in boiling water, the squeezable silicone plug can adapt to different shapes to solidify the body by cooling it in the refrigerator.
METAL BUTT PLUGS:
The people who like something solid and weighty in their ass prefer metal butt plugs. There are different kinds and shapes of metal butt plugs ranging from cone-shaped to bead-shaped. Some of them have gems attached at their base to give it a beautiful and less intimidating look, and these metal butt plugs are good to use with both silicone and water-based lubricant.
Lastly, a butt tingle is another kind of butt plug. It is a little different in shape than your typical small, cone-shaped plug. It is longer and more slender and kind of reaches up to the G spot (in males) to provide the perfect tingle and stimulus.
