About Butt Plugs | Butt Plug Information
Butt plugs are an easy and effective way to provide prostate stimulation and they can come in two forms; your standard butt plug shape, or with a slight curve for intense prostate stimulation. Butt plugs can be used whilst having sex, or as a precursor for more intense anal play. Some guys will wear a butt plug when shopping, working, going to the gym or going for a jog which can be incredibly erotic.Think about, you’re wearing a butt plug on a date, or you know that your partner is wearing one and it can just be incredibly erotic knowing that by the time they come home they’re ready to fuck or be fucked. Butt plugs can come in a variety of textures and materials as well as shapes.
The standard materials of butt plugs are rubber, silicone, glass, metal, and wood each of the materials have their own advantages and disadvantages. When you’re first starting out with butt plugs, and I generally recommend this with all kinds of new sex toys, is to start off cheap to work out if you like it or not. While that gold-plated fitting may be terribly enticing, it may notgo down well if you decide that you’re not a fan of butt play. Another general rule of thumb for anal play beginnings is to start off small. This will work out quite well because the majority of thinner models will generally be cheaper as well. For a somewhat more adventurous beginning, you can get anal trainer kits which consist of several different and incrementally sized butt plugs to begin little and work your way up.
Butt plugs will generally be of a similar shape, starting thin, widening and then finishing off in a wide lipped flange. The purpose of butt plugs varies according to the size. If it’s a wide bulbous plug then it’s designed to create a more filling sensation in the anus which some people find pleasurable. If it’s long and thin it can be designed to tickle the anal walls and provide sensation there. There’s no hard and fast rule about butt plug shapes and sizes – so it’s all about your own body and it’s limits and essentially practicing and finding out what’s good for you.
Types of Butt Plugs
Rubber butt plugs are generally the softer than silicone (there are exceptions), they’re also generally half the price. Rubber butt plugs are great for being introduced to anal play as they’re soft, squishy and bendy and you may not want to spend 40+ dollars on a butt plug. Rubber however is porous and there’s no way to sterilise them – I would never use a rubber butt plug between people and would recommend using separate rubber plugs. You can put a condom over rubber butt plugs, but this can be annoying, time consuming and costly. Rubber butt plugs will be able to handle any lubricant except oil based lubricants.
Silicone Butt Plug
Silicone is a lot smoother than rubber and when you put lubricant on a silicone toy it glides like butter. Silicone is hypo allergenic, so if you’re allergic to the rubber butt plugs you’re going to have to go silicone, glass or metal. The majority of silicone toys are generally softish but still much firmer than rubber. Silicone butt plugs, like glass and steel, can handle being worn all day long as silicone doesn’t absorb bacteria. Silicone can also be sterilised with a 5% bleach solution or by putting the toy in boiling water or through a dishwasher.
Glass And Metal
Glass and metal plugs are almost identical in everything except the actual material used. They’re rigid and won’t bend, and on top of being hygienic and hypoallergenic you can also subject them to temperature play. One of the main advantages to glass and steel as a material for sex toys is the material itself. Glass and steel are actually silky smooth, so they require less grease to get all elusive and slidey, so a glass and steel toy will go into your hole much easier than a rubber or silicone – both of which can get a little grabby with lubricant. Another advantage to glass is it is nonporous, so microscopic organisms can't get underneath the surface and live and develop, so toys made of glasscan be cleaned effectively and safely. Glass and Steel will hold their temperature and you can alter that temperature by putting them in a cold or warm glass of water before insertion. This can provide some extra avenues of play and be incredibly fun for both involved.
Before you start to wonder about the safety of glass butt plugs – just remember that these are solid pieces of glass. Unless you’re going to be using heavy machinery or run the risk of falling over or throwing yourself against numerous brick walls – you’ll be fine. The only way to chip the glass is to throw it at something, and unless your ass muscles have developed the ability to throw butt plugs around (in which case you’ve outgrown this article), you won’t breaking a glass butt plug. Regardless, if you’re still worried and I cannot allay your concerns, try the steel butt plug.
