    Above: Brand new to butt plugs? tells you everything you need to know about using a butt plug for the first time in our handy video guide above.

    Butt plugs are a sexy addition to your sex toy collection and should be your first choice of toy if you're an anal play rookie. Used with anal lube, butt plugs are orgasmic dynamite for both men and women.

    How to Use a Butt Plug

    A butt plug is a conical shaped anal sex toy that starts small but gently graduates in size. They usually feature a slimmer section at the bottom and a flared base for safety. Designed specifically for anal play, a butt plug will gently stretch the anus and stimulate the sensitive nerve endings that exist both internally and externally.

    To start with, lubricate your butt plug and your anus fully. A specialist anal lube will provide the slipperiness needed to aid insertion.

    Position yourself comfortably in one of these three positions:

    1. Bent over on all fours (aka doggy).
    2. On your back with a cushion under your bottom and legs spread.
    3. Squatting over the butt plug on your feet or knees.

    You will soon discover which one is right for you or you may wish to experiment to see if any variation of these positions works best.

    Holding both the base and shaft of the butt plug, position the tip at the opening of the anus, angled slightly towards your stomach, then gently push. You should feel the very tip of the plug enter you. When you feel comfortable, push a little more of the plug in, moving your hand off the shaft and using just the base of the butt plug to provide any motion. If you’re still feeling comfortable, push further and let the slim neck of the plug sit inside you with the flared base resting externally.

    You can then enjoy other forms of stimulation or intercourse whilst the plug rests inside you or you might like to try grinding against it for extra sensations. Alternatively, try moving the plug in and out of you to experience a thrilling thrust.

    You can leave your butt plug in for varying periods of time, ranging from 30 minutes to several hours, however we recommend that you take it out at least every hour to reapply lubricant. This way, you won't experience any discomfort when moving around.
