How to use
a Butt Plug

Okay, so the name isn’t exactly a turn on but, oh boy, are butt plugs worth a try if you’re open to some backdoor play.

These kinky sex toys can send your satisfaction levels skyrocketing. Whether you’re girl on guy, girl on girl, guy or guy, or getting off solo, insert and let the intense, back-bending orgasms begin.

Intrigued? Of course you are

We humans have had a fascination with our anal passage for as long as we’ve had fingers (and tongues) to explore it. But even if you are up for giving butt plugs a go, breaking into unknown territory can be a little daunting, which is why we’re here to help.

From picking out the perfect plug and lube to explaining (yes, in detail) how to slip it in safely, we’ve got every aspect of these naughty little pleasure props covered.

The butt plug buzz

First things first, what’s all the fuss with the butt, anyway?

Well, other than the fact anal fun has always been taboo, which immediately makes it something to tick off your sex list, our booty is jam-packed with nerve endings just waiting to be teased and touched.

Butt plugs are less about titillation and more about stimulation.

The thrill of popping one of these in is the feeling of fullness they bring. And because everyone has a hole, these hot things don’t discriminate, they offer pleasure for everyone – whether you’re pleasing yourself or being pleasured...

For women

Slip one of these things in and you’ll feel totally badass (literally - hello, S&M). The push on the back of your vagina makes you feel tighter – great for your partner – while the sensations during orgasm are OMG intense as you contract around it. You can even experience the thrill of double penetration with these babies.

Men

For Men

if you thought your penis did a good job at delivering pleasure, you ain’t felt nothing yet. 2 to 3 inches up your back passage, there’s this little thing called the prostate, which, when reached by a butt plug, can throw your body into spasms. Known as the P-Spot, discover it with a butt plug and make your orgasms much more intense. Bend over, boys.

Choosing a butt plug

Right, so you’re ready for some butt plug fun, but now what? With so many shapes and sizes to choose from, how do you even know where to start? It’s not exactly something they teach you in sex education classes at school, but luckily we’re here to help!

So, rather than playing eeny, meeny, miny, moe and getting it uncomfortably wrong, let’s take a look at all the options before you start inserting.

Our Ann Summers Butt Plug collection includes everything from your small standard silicone plugs to ones that vibrate, and even ones with fluffy bunny tails – cute and sexy.

The best piece of advice is to start small and work your way up. You don’t want to give yourself, or your partner, more than you or they can handle when you’re only a butt beginner.

Here are our recommendations to start you on your anal adventure:

Booty Blue Beginner's Butt Plug

Booty Blue Beginner’s Butt Plug – soft and small, this baby has minimal curves so is less intense but equally as satisfying.

Small Silicone Butt Plug

The Small Silicone Butt Plug – when you’ve broken the seal, try this model out for size. Its tapered design will help you get used to width for future fun.

Anal Training Butt Plug Kit

Anal Training Butt Plug Kit – if you know you want to go bigger, this lets you open things up gradually with a range of sizes

The Big Boy Silicone Butt Plug – if you’ve discovered you’re a real anal addict, its time to try The Big Boy.

Ps. All our plugs have a special flared-base design, so there’s no chance they can get lost up there. Imagine explaining that in A&E… awkward.

Don’t forget to lube

Selection of flavoured lubes

While there’s no denying that butt holes bring plenty of pleasure, that’s not to say they don’t need a little help to get them ready.

Unlike vaginal sex, our back door doesn’t naturally lube up ready for action. The golden rule for any kind of anal play is lube and plenty of it.

We offer a range of silicone and water-based lubricants designed especially for anal, which are extra thick and long lasting to make play comfortable and pleasurable.

But before you grab one and start slapping it on

there’s a few things you should know first. While silicone lube is great as it doesn’t dry out and lets you go for longer, it can cause damage to silicone, latex or rubber plugs. So, we’d definitely recommend sticking to water-based lubes.

Yes, you’ll have to reapply more regularly, but it’s better than damaging your favourite plug. Plus, there’s plenty of fun to be had when lubing up. Remember to apply it around and just inside the hole, rather than on the butt plug itself, or things can get pretty slippery!

Putting it in

Now to the technical part: putting these bad boys in. Well, it’s not too technical really. In fact, you’ll be a pro butt plug inserter in no time, just as soon as we’ve told you the basics.

Without wanting to state the obvious, make sure you’ve had a chat about what you’re going to do first. No one wants a surprise visitor up there, no matter how good it feels! Only once all consenting parties are in agreement are you ready to begin.

The first step is to start getting frisky

Your anus will be much more obliging if you’re already hot and horny. If you’re with a partner, set the scene, indulge in some foreplay, talk dirty. If you’re settling in on your own, fantasise and touch and tease yourself towards the edge.

Feeling turned on? Okay, now for the fun part...

Lube Up

Remember what we talked about? How you need lube to get things moving. Well, now’s the time to apply plenty of it to the expectant rim.

Get in position

The best ones for slipping it in are all fours, lying on your back with a pillow on your hips or flipped over on your front with a pillow underneath.

Take it slow

don’t forget to breathe. As an anal apprentice, it will feel odd at first, so just ease it in slowly. If you feel pain or discomfort, stop, relax and try again.

Once you’re fully filled, just relax into it and enjoy the intense sensations.

Know Your Limits

Know your limits - Girl in seductive pose

Butt plugs can feel so damn good you might not want to take them out. But, as with any sex toy, don’t get too carried away.

In the beginning, you’ll probably only be able to handle a few minutes anyway, so ‘in-time’ won’t really be an issue. However, as you go from freshman to addict, you’ll probably want to extend the pleasure.

Start with 10 minutes first, then 20, then 30, up to as long as you can take… within reason.

We recommend you don’t leave it in for any more than 2 to 3 hours without giving your booty hole a break. Oh, the release when it comes out! Of course, if you feel any kind of pain or bloating, take it out immediately.

Anal play aftercare

Anal action is about as intimate as it gets. So, after your first butt plug encounter with a partner, make sure you have a good chat about it afterwards. Talk about how it felt, what you did (and didn’t) like and whether it’s something you want to try again – we bet it is!

On a practical note, the back door isn’t the freshest orifice. So, as well as using a douche before, give your plug a good clean after you’ve popped it out. We have a range of handy sex toy wipes and sprays for use during and post. Plus, you should also wash and disinfect them regularly to remove any nasties. NB. Never share or double-dip.


So, there it is. Butt plugs, explained.

Now you’ve learned all you need to know about these little booty pleasers, it’s time to buy, insert and let the butt play begin. Next stop, anal sex.
