We know that shopping for butt plugs can be difficult. With hundreds of different options out there like size, shape, material and colour, finding one that is just right for you can be difficult, but we’re here to help! We've put together this little guide to help you find the perfect butt plug for you or your partner.


When shopping for a butt plug, take care where looking at the size. If you’re not sure where to begin, start with one of our butt plug or anal sex toy kits. This way you can start out with the smaller sizes and work your way up.


As sex toys have become more mainstream, the shapes available have increased dramatically. What shape to buy is very much up to you, but if you’re new to butt plugs we’d recommend sticking to the standard straight rounded tip shape.
When shopping for butt plugs, make sure they have a flanged base or a loop/ring on the end. This’ll stop them getting ‘lost’ when playing, and will save you an embarrassing trip to the emergency room.


Butt plugs come in a variety of materials now, including silicone, glass, wood and metal. For a starter we would always recommend silicone, it's soft, easy to clean, and is inexpensive.
For more experienced players metal and wood provide new feelings and sensations. Glass butt plugs (like glass dildos), can be heated or cooled to give warm or cold sensations that you’ve never felt down there before!


Colour is something we always recommend to shop last by, as you want the butt plug to bring you pleasure above looking pretty. That said, some people find different colours to be turn ons or want their sex toys to match their collection.


Always remember your lubricant when playing anally! We’ve got a great guide on shopping for lubricant here.


Other Features:
If you’ve already enjoyed butt plugs and are looking for something a little bit more exciting, have a look at our inflatable or vibrating plugs.
Inflatable butt plugs are great if you want to slowly push your limits, as you can inflate or deflate it at your pleasure.
Vibrating butt plugs are great for anal foreplay or if your partner is giving you oral sex at the same time.


Things to Try:

Have sex with a butt plug in (him or her):
Once the butt plug is in, leave it there while you have sex. The feeling of fullness (especially for her) will give a completely new sensation.

Have oral sex with a butt plug in (him or her):
Once the butt plug is in, give your partner oral sex. Doubled up with the fullness they’re feeling, it really will blow their mind. Get even kinkier with a vibrating butt plug!

Go out with a butt plug in (him or her):
Once comfortable with the butt plug in you or your partner (or both), go out somewhere and leave it in all day. Maybe just go for a walk, out to the shops or to dinner. See where the night takes you.
