Before we begin, just think of butt plugs and imagine what it reminds you of. When one steps into the exciting world of sex toys, they’re greeted with many phallic devices that are invariably meant for vaginal or clitoral stimulation. Don’t get us wrong, we love having a good time with them. But we also believe that sexual stimulation shouldn’t be restricted to a few spots.

We’re talking about anal play. A whole lot of us have unabashedly enjoyed it, while the other lot has its reservations about it. For the latter lot, there’s one tiny weapon that can help ease doubts regarding anal pleasure. Say hello to the butt plug!

When we talk about anal action, the idea of it can be quite intimidating initially. However, the key is slowly warming yourself up to butt plugs. Anal stimulation includes anal foreplay and sex, two activities that can push sexual pleasure quite a bit. For beginners, butt plugs can help in familiarising yourself with the concept of anal play.

So, what exactly is a butt plug?

Like your usual sexual toys, butt plugs are designed to arouse the derriere and the surrounding area. These are shaped like a tear-drop and have a broad base at the end to prevent it from being sucked in. They’re to gently inserted into the anus to stimulate the area for extra pleasure because who minds some action! Butt plugs, like most sexual devices, are available in various sizes to suit everyone’s need and comfort.

And what’s so special about a butt plug?

Well, for starters, exploring a part of your body that you haven’t before is intriguing. When it comes to anal sex or any anal play, most of us stay away from it because it’s not the ‘conventional’ way to enjoy in bed. However, let no one dictate your sexual fantasy and ways to enjoy sexual activity with or without a partner. “Butt plugs add another layer to anyone’s sexual journey.Most people follow the mindset of wanting a particular position, activity or stroke to lead them to a mind-blowing orgasm. Instead, the train of thought should be how that position or stroke elevates their orgasm”, says Aashish Mehrotra, Co-Founder of The Sangya Project, an online store that sells a variety of sex toys and also offer facts on sexual wellness. 

Butt plugs are underdogs in the universe of sex toys. “Recently, there has been a massive shift in Indian perspectives regarding sex toys. People are increasingly choosing to experiment more than they used to, paving the way for unconventional experiences,” says Vishal Vyas, AVP Marketing at TKK Healthcare, Love Depot’s parent company. He further explains that during the launch of LoveDepot, a survey revealed around 24% of people residing in non-metro cities were already aware of butt plugs, and 13% of them had tried using them alone or with a partner. These figures are self-explanatory.

Pointers for Using Butt Plug

While most people are still warming up to the idea of ‘butt’ pleasure, there’s an understandable air of concern surrounding the entire process of using these sex toys. For starters, it’s always advisable to read up on the workings of a butt plug and know how it’s used for utmost pleasure. “The anus is blessed with multiple nerve endings, and the feeling of pressure in the anal cavity can simultaneously pleasure the G-spot and the prostate. Also, wearing a butt plug during penetrative vaginal sex is a fabulous way to induce a double orgasm, one for your vagina and your anus,” says Aashish.

A sex toy that can be used by everyone, who wouldn’t enjoy this one? Since the anus cannot perform the task of self-lubricating itself, using a water-based lubricant is strongly recommended before indulging in butt play. Let’s be honest; no one enjoys the friction during penetrative sex. A lubricant will ensure that all forms of anal play are done smoothly with no stress and injury to the sensitive area. To fun times in bed!
