Butt plugs
 are probably one of the most popular toys for anal play. Since they can come in a range of styles, different plugs can provide different sensations for your booty. At its most basic form, a butt plug can be inserted and left inside the anus for a period of time. It often provides the wearer with a hands-free feeling of stretching, pressure, and/or fullness!

Here are some important things to consider when picking out a plug.

1. Make sure it has a flared base

For safety reasons, be sure that the plug has a flared base that is wider than the actual plug itself. This flared base acts as a stopper against the anal muscles that can “accidentally” suck things into the anus.

2. Consider the material

Different materials like silicone, metal, glass, etc. are all different with their own properties that may help you choose which plug to get!

3. Be sure to look at the dimensions

Not all butt plugs are the same size!! For your own personal comfort, be sure to pay attention to the insertable length, width, and girth to help ensure you get the right size for your booty experience level.

4. Make it personal!

With so many different butt plugs on the market, give your plug a personal touch with unique things on the base (which peeks through the cheeks when inserted) like emojis, jewels, sayings, symbols, tails, and more.

5. Consider an anal training kit

Whether you want multiple plugs for a better price or you’re trying to work your booty up to a bigger size, an anal training kit can help! They often feature 3-4 plugs of graduated sizes that allow you to start where you’re comfortable and try out the bigger sizes when you’re ready.

6. Think about how long/where you want to wear it

Where you want to wear your butt plug makes a difference in what to look for. If you wanted to take it out of the house, be sure to look for one that is designed for long-term wear. Avoid plugs that are slender in design without curves or varying thicknesses to them which could slip out easier.

7. Read the reviews

Some folks find it helpful to hear about the plug from people that have actually used it already! Although it’s important to consider different experiences, it can provide useful information especially if you’re wondering about something specific like how well it stays put inside of the body.
