butt plug trainingIf you’re looking for a new kind of pleasure, consider playing around with anal toys. The anal area has a ton of pleasurable nerve endings and is an area that many find exciting. If that sounds interesting, it’s time you try out butt plugs!

Butt plugs can help you explore new sexual territory by adding some backdoor pleasure to your bedroom fun. When diving into the anal plug play, there are a few things you should know for a comfortable, sexy, and safe experience.

Read on to discover some tips for your butt plug training.

Consider the Material and Weight

During butt plug training, avoid any toy made with phthalates that can damage your rectum. Go for phthalate-free materials like wood, glass, jelly, plastic, and rubber. Sex toys fall into two major categories: porous and non-porous.

Porous materials are generally soft with small holes. The problem with porous material is that they can trap dirt and bacteria that are hard to remove. This dirt and bacteria may lead to infections if not sterilized before use.

Non-porous materials are more expensive but are of a higher quality. Some materials include glass, metal, silicone, and treated wood.

If you’re a beginner, start with a lightweight and soft butt plug. The heavier the plug is, the shorter time you’ll be able to sustain wearing the plug.

Find the Right Shape and Size

The shape and size of the plug are important so you can use the plug for a long time. The wrong one will leave you struggling to keep it inside you.

The rule of thumb is to choose a butt plug smaller in size than your first preference. You might find it hard to enjoy your sessions if the plug is too large for you. For beginners, it’s best to get toys that are 0.75″ to 1.25″ in diameter range.

The best shape for beginners is a plug with a bulbous head and a narrow stem. You should also get one with a flared base so you won’t risk losing it inside yourself. Be sure that the type of butt plug matches your kink and what you can handle.

Go to the BATHROOM!

Always go to the bathroom first before continuing with anal play. Only wear the plug after you’ve emptied your bowels. Otherwise, you may end up getting cramps and a tummy ache.

You don’t have to remove the plug when you feel like peeing. The plug, however, fills up space in that area and could make peeing a little tricky. When in doubt, watch what your body tells you and don’t hold it in.

Don’t Forget the Lube

Keep in mind you need to lubricate the rectum since it can’t do so on its own. This makes lube an essential tool for anal play. The best type of lube depends on what you’re doing.

If you’re planning on using a butt plug with different or multiple partners, don’t forget to put a condom on it and apply non-oil-based lube prior to each use. Oil-based lubes like coconut oil can break down latex.

The best lubes are water-based and silicone-based lube. They’re both great for anal play but silicone lubes can last longer. When using silicone, never stack silicone on silicone since it can break down and damage the plug.

When applying lube, focus on the head and stem of the plug. Be sure to smear plenty around your anus and use a finger to apply some inside you. Have some tissue on hand to wipe away excess lube to prevent feeling wet and sticky.

Start Slow

Don’t speed your way or push yourself too far when playing with anal toys. Start slow and steady since anal play isn’t a race. The purpose of anal play is for enjoyment and not efficiency.

Going too fast can injure your fragile anal canal. Take your time and gently insert the plug by pointing the tip up towards your stomach then pushing it in using your finger. Remember that the more relaxed and comfortable you are, the easier it is to insert an anal plug.

Protect Your Bum

Always listen to your body and know your body’s limit. Once you start feeling pain, discomfort, or start bleeding, take the plug out immediately.

You can also experience cramps, irritation, or bloating if your body rejects the toy. During insertion, take care as you have fewer pain receptors two to three inches deep. This makes assessing damage difficult for you or your partners, so take it slow.

Remember to only wear a plug for two to three hours at a time. Using a butt plug for too long can cause slight pain in your lower back. It can also give you headaches and cramps.

Always Wash Your Butt Plug

Knowing how to clean your butt or anal plugs should help avoid bacterial infection. Keep note of the water temperature when cleaning your butt plugs. Failing to clean and sterilize your plug can increase the bacteria on it.

For non-porous butt plugs, you have to run it under hot water and rinse off any residue. Submerge it in boiling water for about 10 minutes before taking it out to dry. Be careful when cleaning silicone which can’t withstand heat and may warp.

For porous butt plugs, clean it as soon as you’ve removed it. Use mild antibacterial soap and warm water to disinfect it. When drying any material, let it air dry and pack it away for later use.

Place your toy in an individual case to lessen the risk of damaging it. Never lend or share your anal toys to avoid transmitting infections or bacteria. Make sure to clean your plug at least twice before and after using it.
