Why Do Butt Plugs Feel So Good?

The simple answer is that butt plugs feel really good for lots of reasons. They’re great for anal stimulation, which means you can explore the anal canal and get orgasms without needing a partner to help. They’re also great for pushing on the prostate gland (for men) and anal clitoral stimulation (for women), which means they can boost orgasms in two different ways. Plus, if you’re someone who has penises but prefers vulva-based sex, butt plugs are also amazing for you!

However, as with anything, it’s important to go slow and take your time. Using butt plugs will stretch out the anal muscles, so you need to take things slowly to avoid pain or discomfort. Start with something small, like a finger or sex toy, and work your way up to a bigger plug. Use plenty of lube, and apply pressure gradually. If you feel pain or discomfort, try a different position, more lube, or a smaller plug until you find what feels best.

It’s also important to use body-safe materials, such as medical-grade silicone, hard plastic, borosilicate glass, or stainless steel. Look for these features when purchasing a butt plug from a sex shop, and be sure to read the care instructions on your specific toy. You can wash most butt plugs with soap and water or a sex toy cleaner, and many come with storage bags or boxes for easy cleanup. Be open and honest with your partner about how you’re exploring new toys in the bedroom, and you’ll be able to figure out together what feels safest and most pleasurable.
