What Are Butt Plugs Used For?

A butt plug is an anal sex toy with a head and a base for inserting into your butt. 

Their teardrop shape and broad base are designed to prevent them from getting stuck up your a-hole.

Regardless of your sex or anatomy, anyone can enjoy the unique pleasure of butt plugs. 

Specifically, everyone’s anus contains a vast amount of sensitive nerves, which can make you feel ‘out of this world’ when those nerves are stimulated by, say, a butt plug.

Depending on your genitalia, to access the prostate or get nearer to the vulva’s A-spot and G-spot, the anus is the starting point. 

Butt plugs are versatile and used for many different purposes, such as:

  • Anal training for anal sex

  • Pleasuring the prostate

  • Fantasy play

  • Exploring your sexuality

Differences Between Butt Plug & Prostate Massager 

There are various anal sex toys available, and two of the most common that we get confused are butt plugs and prostate massagers. 

As previously noted, butt plugs are gender-inclusive, while sex toys with the term “prostate” (also known as the “p-spot” and the “male G-spot”) refer to people with a penis.

Also, both share that they can help stimulate the prostate, have that slightly curved bulb-shaped head, and are generally considered effective in achieving orgasms. 

One of the other best ways to stimulate the prostate is using a prostate massager because they are made explicitly for triggering those nerves.

Unlike other ‘male’ sex toys, such as butt plugs, prostate massagers slightly differ in features, size, design, etc. For example:

  • Most prostate massagers vibrate 
  • Most prostate massagers are flexible, sometimes even adjustable
  • Some are small, thus ideal for beginners
  • Some are designed with a second feature that wraps around your perineum.This feature enables the prostate massager inside you to stay secure so that you can have the flexibility to penetrate someone or move around without it falling out.
BUTT PLUG vs prostate massager

Additionally, there is an alternative method to stimulate your prostate - a prostate massage, including medical purposes.

It’s also the natural way as it requires your partner’s fingers to stick up your back door.   

8 Best Vibrating Butt Plugs

Butt plugs alone are great, but consider those that vibrate if you want to take your inner sensations to the next level.

The vibrations help to massage the internal wall of your anus, making it easier to stretch your anus and prepare it for badder, better ‘danger’ (larger penis, toy, gaping). 

Read on to learn about the best vibrating butt plugs for all levels.

1. Lovense Hush 2: Best for Long-distance Play & Versatility


The Lovense Hush 2 is versatile enough for solo play, foreplay, discreet play, and distance play.

Connect this butt plug to a smartphone for close-range or long-distance fun. 

Its strong vibrations send electricity up and down my body, thus delivering what is promised.

Once inside, the Hush 2 does not give me the slightest reflexes to stop it from slipping out because the base securely (and comfortably) fits.

It seems Lovense has integrated all the latest technological trends into one butt plug.

So, its app lets you do a wide range of things, even Siri-like magic, with its voice activation feature to control the vibrations! 

If you have a long-distance partner, you can control the butt plug through the internet, taking cybersex to the next level.

Nothing tops off the mood than when I sync the app to The Weekend’s mood-enhancing music. 

It is made with 100% silicone and comes in 4 sizes.

I recommend to try the 1.5'' model if you are new to the field. If you are ready to take your back-hole to a new challenge, the 2.25'' one will impress you.


  • High-quality & body-safe silicone in entirity
  • App controllable
  • Strong and rumbly vibration
  • Great for long distance couple
  • Syncs to music
  • Customizable vibration patterns
  • Waterproof


  • The strongest vibrations can be loud
  • Some reported Bluetooth connection issues

2. B-Vibe Rimming: Best for Dual Sensation - Vibration + Rotation

B-Vibe Rimming 2 anal rotation

If you’ve ever been called an “ass kisser” or a “suck up” to get someone to favor you, then maybe they’re not wrong, especially if you end up selecting the B-Vibe Rimming 2.

It’s made for those who literally love kissing any part of someone else’s butt. 

For those not so familiar with the act of “rimming,” it’s a type of oral sex involving one’s mouth doing anything to another person’s beautiful bum to arouse them sexually. Sucking, kissing, licking, biting - you name it!

The B-Vibe Rimming 2 is a body-safe, hypoallergenic rimming toy with seven rotation modes and six vibration modes for optimal pleasure.  

The silicone body and waterproof feature allow it to be safe to use in most scenarios and easy to clean.

It comes in three sizes: petite, plug 2, and XL. The original Rimming Plug 2 is designed for intermediate users.

However, the plug is not as soft as initially thought but instead feels harder - similar to a glass plug. This is not a bad thing because it ensures a easier insertion.

Depending on you, I find the actual smooth ones to glide in more smoothly. 

I really like the shape of the head, as it is beginner-friendly with a more pointy tip for better insertion. 

The base is comfortable with a solid neck to stay in place.

For instance, my partner and I are more into the fantasy of general public play than private as long as it all remains discreet. I guess we get off on almost being caught. 

I like to have this baby jam up my a-hole when we’re at a noisy bar or restaurant.

Little do the unsuspecting citizens around us know, I’m trying to prevent our table from turning into an earthquake because I’m secretly sizzling inside as he’s toying with the Hush’s vibrations - a foot away on his phone. 

I’d often bite my lips while trying to hold a face-palm from the coming waiter!  

Note also the vibrations are a bit loud on higher settings when used outside.

Also, the Bluetooth idea is relatively new in such a sex toy. Thus, risky as you might encounter some disconnections from your phone.

bvibe rimming plug 3 sizes

I like the fact that it's possible use the device up to 30 feet (9 meters) away with its remote-control technology. 

This is great for solo play or a partner to control for discreet play.  

This little monster tries to act like someone is rimming your behind. Thus, also ideal for loners on free nights.

Yet, I wouldn’t say this one is suitable for newbies; it might be too much with all the vibrations and the rotating beads. 

I also really love the wireless remote, so I’m able to easily adjust the vibration settings of the strong motors to tease myself.

Compared to standard vibrators, this rimmer might seem like a vibrator that has been added to the plug’s base.

Nevertheless, the base’s vibration motor is still powerful for effective stimulation. 

Sometimes that ‘feeling’ might also be there but not as quiet, so I’d suggest trying to turn off the vibration mode before use so that you could feel the rotating beads and consider contracting your muscles to enhance the sensation. 


  • Remote-control up to 30 feet away
  • Body-safe silicone
  • 7 rotation modes, 6 vibration modes
  • Discreet case included
  • 3 size options for different needs


  • Head may be more difficult to insert for beginners
  • Not 100% waterproof (it's splashproof)

3. We-Vibe Vector: Best for Both Massaging Prostate & Anal Exploration

vector wevibe review

If you want a toy that embraces both a stable remote controller like B-vibe Rimming and a customizable app-control feature like Lovense Hush, We-vibe Vector is the one.

Vector is a remote control prostate massager with two motors for deep, internal perineum pleasure.

Although it may seem that he’s going to fully enjoy the miracle round more than she, prostate massagers can benefit both men and women. 

With prolonged use of the male sex toy, it has been reported that many men receive thicker and stronger erections as a result. That’s enough said. 

Also, massaging his prostate allows the vulva-owner to be in a dominant position if she’s into role-reversal fantasies.

Such that she has the opportunity to use a toy, her fingers, or peg him.

Least to say, his orgasms are significantly stronger through prostate massaging than with penis stimulation, which should also benefit her by merely watching him explode.     

There are 10 different vibrations designed for safety and comfort while enhancing your experience.

The head and base are flexible, allowing you to find the right spot while securely staying inside.

Compared to standard prostate massagers, Vector sits tight no matter how much he moves around, which can also be a good thing because you’d want to see him squirm.

I’d also suggest using the included lube or your own before use.

During sex, I hardly use the remote since the app is more versatile in terms of control. 

The app can control two separate motors, one for the head that stimulates the prostate and the other for stimulating the balls.

Thus, really sending my baby over the edge every time.  

I love teasing him by turning up the power as much as when I feel him rumbling inside me.  

You can use the butt plug up to 3 meters away with its remote control.

With the We-Connect app, you can control the prostate massager from anywhere, great for long-distance play.


  • Amazingly strong vibration (10 levels)
  • Remote and app contrallable
  • Great for both long-distance and close-range control
  • Versatile
  • Long battery life
  • 100% Waterproof


  • Head size might be challenging for starters

4. Romp Bass: Budget friendly, powerful and non-intimidating

romp bass butt plug

If you've ever been curious about exploring the back door of pleasure, Romp Bass can be the perfect introduction. And its price tag won't burn your wallet.

Romp Bass boasts a shape that tantalizes and a coating of velvety-smooth silicone that ensures extra comfort. 

It has around 3.5 inches (8.9cm) of insertable length.

It's also a waterproof and rechargeable toy, ready to enable you to dive into sensuous encounters in the bath or shower. And it's a breeze to clean after each use.

There are 6 different intensity levels and 4 patterns to choose from. Vibration power is surprisingly strong, considering it is a rather small toy. 

Cycling between the various vibration settings is effortless, even when the plug is inserted.

This allows you to explore and discover your preferences without interrupting the flow of pleasure.

You can enjoy the toy for up to 1 hour after each charge. 

What I like the most is its seamless insertion and removal process, combined with its gentle vibration, made it exceptionally comfortable to wear for extended periods.

This toy is also designed with discretion in mind. I am impressed by its quiet operation, especially at the lowest setting and when inserted.


  • Gender-neutral
  • Very smooth silicone surface
  • Non-intimidating in size
  • Powerful vibration (6 vibration levels + 4 modes)
  • 100% Waterproof
  • Budget friendly


  • It's a small toy, not for people who is looking for a very full sensation

5. OhMiBod Lumen: Best for Additional Entertainment

OhMiBod Lumen butt plug

I've tried almost all Ohmibod toys and Lumen is one of the memorable ones.

Lumen is a butt plug allows you to sync your favorite music as it vibrates to the beat for a fun, solo experience.

The OhMiBod Club Vibe mode connects with Spotify or Apple Music and vibrates to the latest hits.

It is body-friendly with cushioned rigid silicone featuring Velvet Wave for maximum comfort.

Connect through the Kiiroo FeelConnect App for dual stimulation by connecting with a partner long distance.

I like that the base has an LED light, which provides visual feedback to your lover.

The LED light also responds to the vibrations of your playlist when synced, providing a light show in the bedroom!


  • Unique experience with LED light at the base
  • Syncs to music and vibrates to the beat
  • An app to connect and play long-distance with a partner
  • Body-safe
  • Beginner-friendly
  • 100% Waterproof


  • Heavily relies on apps

6. Doc Johnson A Play Thrust: Best for Advanced Users

Doc Johnson A Play Thrust

With its 5-inch circumference and 4.75-inch insertable length, the Doc Johnson A Plus Thrust is designed for experienced users.

It has seven pulsating features for added stimulation. It is a silicone anal plug with a wireless remote control and USB rechargeable.

Because it’s 100% silicone, it is hypoallergenic, odorless, and body-safe.

This anal vibrator also warms to body temperature and is water-resistant.

I like that it’s weighted inside to mimic thrusting, which is fantastic for solo play.

Specifically, there’s definitely a difference in heaviness when compared to regular silicone plugs. 

Yet, heavy enough that I feel the toy’s weight gently pressing inside against my anal walls - like how a good ol’  dick should feel. 

Unfortunately, beginners must avoid this toy—for now!


  • Weighted
  • Unique thrusting motions
  • 7-function pulsations
  • Velvet Touch silicone


  • Not friendly towards beginners
  • Not 100% waterproof (it's water resistent)

7. Lelo Hugo: Best for Intermediate Prostate Massaging & Dual Stimulation

Lelo Hugo butt plug

Learn more about  Lelo Hugo

The Lelo Hugo has a 4-inch circumference and 5-inch insertable length to stimulate the P-spot, excellent for intermediate or advanced users.

The anal toy is flexible, ensuring you find the right spot. It is also rechargeable and can last up to 2 hours.

Six pre-programmed vibration modes adjust to your sensations, with the SenseMotion feature to step up the enjoyment.

This butt plug has a remote control, suitable for short distances and solo play.

Silicone material from Lelo's toys meets the highest standard in the sex toy field.

It is silky smooth, which provides the most amazing touch even to the most sensitive spots; and of course it is also safe, hypoallergenic, easy to clean, and waterproof.

My partner was initially skeptical about the Hugo, but it ended up sliding in him easily after the toy’s lube bath.

Although sadly not meant for public play, the (somewhat fiddly) remote does vibrate, and so, I put it inside my panties for both of us to feel the rumble.

He might not always orgasm from prostate toys alone, yet he claimed his masturbation intensified as a result. 


  • Ultra smooth silicone
  • Comes with a remote controller
  • 2 vibration motors
  • Strong prostate vibration patterns
  • 100% Waterproof


  • Vibration for perineum is a bit weak 
  • Some reported the toy is likely to partially slide out when in use

8. B-Vibe Snug Plug: Best for Intermediate Long-Term Wear

B-Vibe Snug Plug vibrator

The B-Vibe Snug Plug is amongst the best butt plug vibrators and popular within the community with two options: medium and XL.

The medium has a circumference of 4.3 inches, suitable for intermediate users. The XL has a 5.35-inch circumference, only suitable for advanced users.

The medium weighs 112 grams, while the XL weighs 274 grams, making the medium best for wearing all day if desired.

It is a weighted vibrating butt plug designed for long-term wear with a flexible neck and smooth grip handle.

The soft, seamless silicone is body-safe, splashproof, and easy to clean.

Plus, so soft that merely running your fingers over its smoothness is almost a slight stimulation of its own.

For anal training, I usually prefer to ‘warm up’ the butthole first before inserting the toy.

I suggest to twist the plug around - the thin ship-anchor stem (or t-shape base) makes maneuvering highly flexible.   

Once pushed through,  you can feel the rectum quickly welcoming the Snug Plug’s entire length, at least that's the case for me.

Even as a beginner once who was all antsy about sticking anything up her butthole, the firmness of this toy oddly would feel relaxed inside.

Another common worry I tend to have is about skin irritation. 

In reality, the t-base hides like a comfy baby between the ass cheeks, never slipping for a moment, and the silky silicone material all the more rubs nicely against my skin

For long-term wear, such as about a typical eight-hour workday, it’s best to oil the Snug Plug beforehand.

It also definitely makes itself present when I move around or just sit.

Personally, I really adore b-vibe's anal toys. It's hard to go wrong no matter for beginners or advanced players.


  • Soft, seamless 100% silicone
  • Weighted to feel the fullness
  • Excellent for intermediate and advanced users
  • Great for comfortable extended wear
  • The slim neck means it stays put when in use 
  • The t-bar means nor fear of it being sucked in
  • 100% waterproof


  • Not beginner-friendly
  • Not tapered enough, so can't tricky to insert

7 Best Non-Vibrating Butt Plugs

If you want to wear a butt plug for fun or warm-up for anal sex, non-vibrating butt plugs are excellent to fit your needs.

They’re also for hardcore players to feel the stretch. Continue reading to find out the best non-vibrating butt plugs.

1. Njoy Pure Plug: Best for Intermediate w/ Stainless Steel Build

njoy pure plug medium size

The Njoy Pure Plug is stainless steel anal plug with an angled head and tapered tip for maximum comfort. It is easy to clean and long-lasting.

The slim stem and flared base enable you to find the right angles for more comfortability and fit. The ringed base also allows for a better grip.

The Njoy Pure Plug comes in four sizes: small, medium, large, XL. Each is cast in 316-grade stainless steel, which is excellent for temperature play.

njoy pure plug

I am obsessed with the 200g weight, which gives a sense of ultimate fullness and 360° sensation. 

Its glass head has a relatively wide girth that is manageable enough to deliver a comfortable feeling inside you. 

I don’t feel constant slight stretching, and the Njoy is silently sitting there in my a-hole, almost too quiet and cozy that I sometimes have gone to bed with it. 

Its noticeable weight reminds me of its presence. Moving around is also like a sensational dance, which is oddly unexpected due to its given weight.

Some plugs can grow uncomfortable after an hour or so and require more than three lubing sessions throughout the day.

Yet, this one needed to be ‘warmed up’ only about twice for me. 

Despite that I love this plug dearly, I must point out that it takes some practice to appreciate a hardcore weighted butt plug like this.  

You really have to learn about your body and know where to find the spot before you can truly enjoy the sensation it provides.


  • Completely body safe (100% stainless steel)
  • Extremely durable
  • Weighted, which provides a sense of fulness
  • Ergonomic design (a beautiful curve that fits most people's anatomy)
  • Ideal for temperature play
  • Very easy to clean
  • Ideal for both G-spot and P-spot stimulation


  • Takes time to learn how to properly use it

2. Fifty Shades of Grey Something Forbidden Silicone Butt Plug: Best for Beginners

Fifty Shades of Grey Something Forbidden Silicone Butt Plug

If you wanted to explore pleasure in anal or start anal training, a streamline beginner butt plug like the Fifty Shades of Grey Something Forbidden is an excellent option.

The tapered fit is great for easy, comfortable insertion with a 3.25-inch circumference and 3.5-inch insertable length.

The finger loop base allows it to be quickly removed and safe to wear.

This makes the pulling part a lot more easier and I think it is a feature other butt plug should apply as well! 

For a retail price that is under $20, I didn't expect much. Good thing is this small thing delivered more than what I expected.

Great silicone surface - it actually doesn't feel like those cheap quality materials.

Also, the velvet-smooth silicone build allows it to be worn for extended use. It is also hypoallergenic and easy to clean.

Lastly, it’s waterproof, suitable for play in the shower.

Personally,  I found it is a little smaller, especially if for people who already stepped in the field and have a stretched back hole. 


  • Very budget friendly
  • Beginner-friendly size
  • Velvet-smooth silicone
  • Flexible
  • For solo and couples
  • Waterproof


  • No flared based to keep it from sticking inside

3. DOMINIX Deluxe Stainless Steel Faux Fox Tail Butt Plug: Best for Role Playing

lovehoney fox tail butt plug

Discover more tailed butt plugs

The DOMINIX Faux Fox Tail is small enough to fit for extended use and excellent for intermediate experience with its 3.75-inch circumference.

A perfect butt plug for role-playing or fetishes!

The insertable length of 2.75 inches will fit snugly, allowing you for hands-free role play with a partner.

If you wanted, you could unscrew the butt plug from the tail to wear alone. This also allows you to clean the plug easily.  

After the Njoy pure wand, I started to adore stainless steel sex toy, as you can warm or cool it in water for temperature play. And the weight can do some amazing things.

For example, we’d leave the toy bathing in our sink of lukewarm water for about 10 minutes, giving me enough time to slip on one of my Victoria’s and for the Mr. to finish his football game.

Then, I’d lube it and insert it in the plug, which is surprisingly heavier than expected but not any less comfortable.

Apparently, my partner really has a thing for small cat-like gestures from me, such as when I wear my simple and elegant cat-ears headband to match my black lingerie and strut around with the tail toy inside me.

The tickling of the fox’s fur truly tickles our internal senses even more during sex!


  • Stainless steel - durable & easy to maintain
  • Ideal for role-playing & animal play
  • Detachable tail to wear alone if desired
  • Ideal for temperature play


  • Quality of the tail is fine, but not amazing

Read this article of mine if you are interested in discovering more animal-tailed butt plugs ;).

4. Doc Johnson TitanMen Intimidator: Best for Anal Stretching

Doc Johnson TitanMen Intimidator

The Doc Johnson Intimidator is the real deal!

It has an 11-inch circumference, definitely an intimidating size.  

But, for some couple, this is the ultimate toy for anal stretching, anal training, gaping, and fisting.

No doubt, this giant anal toy is for advanced users looking to take it to the next level.

This impressive length and girth provide some really hardcore BDSM feeling, enough for deep penetration into the anal cavity with its graduated PVC shaft.

It is ridged from top to bottom, providing pleasure and superior stretching sensations.

What I like that, despite having intimidating look, the tip is not too big and it actually has graduated girth.

Also, I like that it's possible to incorporate hands-free play with a Vac-U-Lock suction cup, sold separately.

Apparently, it is also waterproof, excellent for shower play.

For those of you who wants to challenge yourself with size, this is THE ONE!


  • challenging, intimidating but user-friendly
  • Ridged & graduated girth
  • Great for advanced players
  • Ideal for BDSM play & big toy fantasies
  • Suitable for gaping, fisting, anal stretching
  • Vac-U-Lock compatible
  • Waterproof


  • PVC may feel too hard

5. Gläs Pacifier Glass Butt Plug: Best for Temperature Play

Gläs Pacifier Glass Butt Plug

GLÄS is my go-to brand when it comes to glass sex toy because the toys from this company are in amazing quality and quite affordable.

This Pacifier Butt Plug is made of 100% borosilicate glass that is easy to clean and responds to temperatures. Also, it claims to be handblown & handcrafted.

Glass butt plugs create unique sensations, allowing you to experience sensory play as it can get hot or cold.

Glass can also retain heat, providing an organic feeling.

This butt plug also has tinted nubs for added stimulation. It is also lightweight and easy to maneuver.

In general, I am not a big fan of glass-made sex toys because they seem to be too fragile and I feel like a single accidentally drop can break the toy.

However, I do admit that they are really pretty and way more environmental-friendly than the PVC or silicone type of toys. 

Also, just like for the Fifty shades Something Forbidden, I like the retrieval loop, allowing you to turn the plug while inserted for more stimulation.


  • Glass for temperature play
  • Easy to clean
  • Nubs attached for increased pleasure
  • Eco-friendly
  • Budget friendly
  • Compatible with all types of lubes


  • Not suitable for beginners

6. Lovehoney Jeweled Metal Beginner’s Butt Plug: Best for Starters

Lovehoney Jeweled Metal Beginner’s Butt Plug

Those who have never used a butt plug but want to try can start with this Jeweled Metal anal toy.

It has a small and short (aka. beginner-friendly) 2.5-inch insertable length, which makes it a lot less intimidating than other butt plugs. 

Also, the smooth stainless steel surface makes sure an easy insertion, but of course, it's still necessary to use some lube.

Also, the nickel-free zinc alloy is safe, waterproof, and easy to clean.

And the metal material makes it naturally ideal for temperature play, allowing warm or cool sensations. 

What I like the most is it's perfectly tapered tip, which not only allows for easy insertion, but also incorporates very well with the weight it embraces.

I like that it weighs 145 grams despite being small to feel full.

All in all, this butt plug is one of the best for solo or partner play.


  • Adds personality with a jeweled base
  • Ideal for temperature play
  • Relatively small in size, which is excellent for starters exploring anal toys
  • Very durable
  • Budget friendly


  • Base can be too small for extended wear

7. Mystim Rocking Force: Best Electro Butt Plug

Mystim Rocking Force

No matter you have prostate or not, electrostimulation in your rare hole can add a new level of sensation for your anal play.

Mystim is my favorite brand when it comes to electro play, and this butt play doesn't disappoint.

The toy is made of 100% Medical-Grade Silicone and there are 2 sizes to choose from (S/L), which caters to different needs of anal stretching.

  • Small (Length & Diameter): 3.7" & 1.5"
  • Large (Length & Diameter): 4.1" & 1.9"

It has a tapered tip, which enables easy insertion; meanwhile, the flared base makes sure you can pull it out quickly if the electroshocks get too intense. 

This toy can tingle, prickle, pulsate as strongly or as gently as you wish. And the waves of electricity can provide such deep and penetrating sensations. Your orgasm will be more intense than ever!

Note: in case this is your 1st electro toy, Mystim TENS Unit is required to utilize the electrosex feature


  • Unique and intense electro-sensation
  • Ideal for both beginners and advanced players 
  • Ideal for standard and prostate stimulation
  • 2 size options
  • Soft and high-quality silicone surface


  • Electro stimulation is not for everyone
  • Expensive (as you need the TENS unit)

8. Dark Inflator: Best Inflatable Anal Plug

Dark Inflator

After trying some traditional anal toys (such as anal vibrators and plugs), I have been eyeing up inflatable anal toys, as they offer a new sensation that no other type of toy can achieve - a sense of fulfillment.

The Dark Inflator is 4.5'' long (with an insertable length of 3.50'') and the tubing is around 20''.

It's very easy to insert thanks to the tapered tip, and simple to inflate and deflate, and isn't uncomfortable in any way when inside.

It provides such an intensely pleasurable feel when pumped up.
Also, this is a great toy for those of you who don't want to spend too much as it cost 
less than $30.


  • Unique fulfilling sensation
  • Adjustable sizes (with pumps)
  • Easy to clean
  • Easy to insert (tapered tip)
  • Budget-friendly


  • Not for people who prefer slim plugs

9. Piggy Butt Plug: Best for Advanced Anal Training

Piggy Butt Plug

The Piggy butt plug is made of 100% ultra-premium soft silicone that is eco-friendly, hypoallergenic, and easy to clean.

The material allows you to feel full with its 10-inch length and 2.4-inch top head diameter. It also has a decent weight of 1.7lbs.

The unique design has an inner ball that builds pressure and can act as a plug when fully inserted at the bottom ridges.

So, its design with the not-too-big-not-too-small head comfortably squeezes in my partner’s anus and hits his prostate just right.

Its soft material makes it soft enough to insert the whole length inside and wearing the toy all the more sensational. 

Only advanced users who want to venture into anal training for large dildos or partners should use this product.


  • Ideal for advanced anal play & training
  • Unique material and design
  • Soft and flexible silicone
  • Boilable and easy to clean
  • Flattering color


  • Some complains the texture is a bit too soft

3 Best Anal Kits for Exploring

If you’re a beginner or someone who wants some real training, kits can help you be more comfortable and get used to anal toys.

Continue reading to view the best anal training kits for beginners.

1. B-Vibe Anal Training & Education Set: Best Anal Kit Overall

B-Vibe Anal Training & Education Set

The B-Vibe Anal Training Kit comes with butt plugs in three sizes: small, medium, and large to ease into anal toys.

It comes with education and step-by-step guides to get started, including an anal enema, lubricant, and a discreet travel bag.

These three anal plugs are soft, seamless silicone, splashproof, durable, and easy to clean.

Also, the small plug is a non-vibrating anal toy, the medium vibrates, and the large is weighted, allowing you to experience every kind of butt plug.

Back when my partner and I were starting with anal training kits, we first used it alone because we felt the lack of judgment will help us use the toys more comfortably and at our own pace. 

Then, when finally somewhat ready to try together, we realized about two hours was a good chunk of time for anal play.

However, I’m not saying to go charging in and whipping out any toy to jam up your rear like it’s a rape fantasy. 

During those first few evenings with this set, the key for us was finding ways to turn on one another, let it be getting buzzed with whiskey, dabbing in some recreational drugs, and so on.

The rest of the journey was then about taking things slow.

That is, no shoving anything but more so, gently pressing the toy into one another to feel the stretching only inch by inch. 

Don’t expect the toys to be inserted your first time fully, either.

Consider little acts like wiggling, small thrusts, and pulling out the plug completely just to reinsert it back in the butthole but at the same depth as before. 

Perhaps, even dedicating each session to using just one size so you both can solely focus on enjoying that size (or not).

You would also think that “the bigger, the better” but no, no, my dears - especially beginners. Starting small and building up is the key.

2. Fifty Shades of Grey Take it Slow: Best for Beginner Solo Play

Fifty Shades of Grey Take it Slow kit

The Fifty Shades of Grey Take it Slow kit comes with anal beads, a non-vibrating and vibrating anal plug, and an anal douch.

I like that it comes with anal beads, as it is a gentle introduction to anal play.

The static butt plug has a friendly tip for insertion and a loop ring for easy removal.

Unfortunately, I do not like the vibrating plug’s shape, as it is too pointy.  

However, this kit is best for those who want to explore anal sensations during solo play.


  • Anal beads included for another level of sensation
  • Douche included for a clean and fresh experience
  • Vibration is strong (10 different functions)
  • Great value set for starters
  •  Easy to use and clean


  • The vibrating plug can be too pointy for some people and may harm the rectal walls if inserted improperly
  • Vibrator is battery operated

3. Size Matters Magnum Ease-In: Best for Going From Beginner to Advanced

Size Matters Magnum Ease-In set

The Size Matters Magnum Ease-In comes with five butt plugs in sizes: extra-small, small, medium, large, extra-large.

If you are anal training to explore anal sex with dildos or a partner, this kit stretches the anal cavity gradually and safely.

Each has a tapered head for easy insertion and hole tips to release pressure, making the experience more enjoyable as you begin anal training.

With the multiple progressing plug sizes, it wouldn’t be a surprise if an experienced anal enthusiast only gets the kit for the two largest dilators to prep them for ‘prime time’ with bigger penises or dildos. 

What’s more, it’s nice that the rest of the sizes (extra small to medium) are manageable for beginners.

Each plug contains so-called ‘air holes’ to make you comfortably wear them for hours. 

Specifically, the holes release any trapped air when wearing a plug, leading to possibly relieving stomach aches. 

Although, in my opinion, the plugs are quite sharp and hard to feel due to the plastic. In hindsight, a softer material would be more pleasurable.  


  • Five sizes to make sizing up easy
  • Great size ranges
  • Hole in tips to release pressure
  • Safe to wear for long periods
  • Easy to insert
  • Easy to clean


  • No anal vibrator
  • Made of hard plastic

How to Use a Butt Plug?

Different people have different passes exploring the anal tunnel.

I can't speak for all. But I will share my experience regarding how I use anal toys, especially butt plugs. 

When I began using a butt plug, it took time to get used to, requiring lots of lube and patience.

Over time, I started to get more comfortable going from small to intermediate, beginning to feel the pleasure from what is called the “A-spot.”

Using small butt plugs allowed me to feel a different pleasure, enjoyable for solo play and with a partner.

1. How to Use a Butt Plug Solo?

Masturbating with a butt plug brings double the fun as I felt arousal both vaginally and anally, allowing me to have a powerful orgasm! 

Thankfully, there are anal sex toys out there now providing dual stimulations to optimize one’s sensation, potentially leading to squirting or orgasms.

I love vibration, but sometimes, rotation can be quite necessary when it comes to anal stimulation.

The b-vibe rimming butt plug is a popular example as it offers a unique kind of pleasure, involving simultaneous stimulation of your external anus and your internal anal nerve endings. 

It does so through its design integrating rotating beads, which lightly tickles your anal walls, thus triggering your sensitive nerves to feel pleasure.

Meanwhile, its vibration waves carry through to the vagina or prostate, resulting in double stimulation. 

Moreover, such rimming devices typically come with a remote to help you adjust the vibration levels, especially when alone but discreetly wearing the plug in public or sitting upright and wearing the plug.   

2. How to Use a Butt Plug with a Partner?

Many times for anal sex, I have my own ritual. I first use a non-vibrating butt plug, such as the Njoy Pure Plug, with a partner.

Why I start with non-vibrating option? Because I want to take my time. Vibration can make me come to fast. 

Anyhow, I think butt plugs work extremely well in certain positions such as the doggy style.

As my partner is thrusting in, I can feel the butt plug slightly pushing in and out, giving me a pleasurable sensation.  

After some intense thrusting. I like to then switch to a vibrating toy such as B-Vibe Snug Plug, where my partner felt the vibrations during intercourse, achieving powerful climaxes for both of us.

3. Best Positions to Use Butt Plugs

Doggy style and missionary are the best positions to use a butt plug, as the butt plug fills you more, tightening the vagina and increases the pleasure for both of you.

How a Butt Plug Works?

Butt plugs are designed to stimulate anally and pleasure the prostate (p-spot), perineum, A-spot, and G-spot.

Butt plugs are (usually) made with these materials:

  • Glass: More temperature-responsive and retains heat, such as the Gläs Pacifier Glass Butt Plug
  • Silicone: Softer, best for comfortability
  • Stainless steel: Durable and easy to clean

The different types of butt plugs include:

  • Non-vibrating (static): Useful solo, during partner play, and to wear for extended periods.
  • Vibrating: Extra stimulation anally. Vibrating butt plugs can be wireless or remote-controlled such as the Lovense Hush.
  • Weighted: Heavy butt plugs make you feel fullness for realistic pleasure

How Long Can You Wear a Butt Plug?

You can wear a butt plug all day long if desired. It depends on your experience and the design of the plug.

For instance, a smaller silicone anal plug is a better choice for comfortability if you are a beginner.

If you’re intermediate or advanced, stainless steel may provide more sensations.

Apply lube every few hours to prevent discomfort.

Also, make sure you leave space to release gas, otherwise, long-time wearing may lead to stomach ache. 

How to Clean Butt Plugs?

The most common way to clean butt plugs of all types is to use warm water and soap, preferably antibacterial soap.

Silicone can leave behind a smell, so people use coconut oil to clean it, then wash it away with soap and water since it can retain odors.

Non-vibrating silicone toys and stainless steel can be boiled for intense cleaning.
