Choosing the size of the butt plug is particularly important, especially if you're making a first purchase. The rule of thumb is to choose a small size rather than a large one if you have any doubts about your ability to insert it into your buttocks without difficulty. Besides, anal penetration should never be difficult, if you properly prepare the erogenous zones around your orifice by stimulating them, the anal plug should slide in like butter.

 

Don't be embarrassed to use your fingers before buying your first anal toy, this will allow you to see if you have a rather easy or rather tight anus.

 

Concerning the ideal size, as a general rule it is a small anal plug with a diameter of about 3 cm and a conical shape to facilitate a progressive insertion. Afterwards, it is advisable to take a medium size before moving on to a large size and why not continue this orgasmic path by acquiring an XL plug?

 

Choosing a plug: metal, silicone or glass?

 

First of all, you must avoid the use of "cheap" and low-end sex toy, they may contain toxic substances such as phthalates. This is very harmful to your health and especially when you want to wear your plug for long periods of time, like at work for example.

Metal is one of the best materials for varying and playing with temperatures. Stainless steel has the ability to absorb heat or coolness, just soak it in ice cubes for a few minutes or in boiling water (which also allows it to be sterilized before use). If you've never experienced the intense pleasure of temperatures inside your buttocks, we strongly advise you to try the adventure with a metal anal plug!

 

silicone butt plug

Silicone is also a healthy material for your body, it has the particularity to be flexible and to adapt to the shape of your rectal orifice during penetration. It is therefore ideal for beginners, and it is also very soft and pleasant to the touch. Many practitioners swear by silicone.

glass butt plug

It is possible to see through it if you choose a transparent glass, that could please your partner if she/he is a curious person...

 

Vibrating or non-vibrating?

Not everyone enjoys vibrations in the anus. For some people, the vibrations can help them relax, while for others, they can make them feel tense.

 

If you're not sure if this is your thing yet, you can apply a vibrator, without inserting it, to the entrance of your anus to try to determine if it's your thing.

 

In any case, with a vibrating anal plug, you can always turn it off to use it without vibrations.
