6 Different Butt Plugs To Introduce You To Anal Play

You know you're curious.


Claire Lampen |

Gather round, friends, because it’s time to answer the most burning question on everyone’s mind: which toys are best if you’re looking to get into some butt stuff? That’s not actually your most pressing query at the moment? Fine, but I suspect you might be curious.

If you’re new to the butt-play game, “You should never go from zero to penis,” sex educator and CEO of b-Vibe, Alicia Sinclair previously told Women’s Health. “It will most likely hurt and create a negative first experience.” Sinclair recommends testing the water with a toy and working your way up to bigger girths. She calls this “anal training” and stresses that it’s crucial to help the anal muscles acclimatise to penetration.

Of course, it’s also worth noting that beyond “anal training”, butt plugs can be used for super-satisfying anal play in their own right – for both men and women. So without any further ado: here are six of our top picks for butt plugs.
