So buckle up BUTTercup, you’ve got a one way ticket to the pleasure palace.

What Is a Butt Plug?

You may have asked, what is a buttplug? or do butt plugs feel nice? A butt plug is a popular anal sex toy for anal play. The simple design of these anal toys helps the user enjoy hands-free anal stimulation for prolonged periods of time. Similarly, it should always have a flared base. Without it, you can risk losing the plug inside your anus, and it can travel as far up as your colon.

Unlike many other sex toys, such as anal beads or dildos, a butt plug is meant to stay in place during other forms of sexual play. However, you can also just leave the butt plug in your anus, as some people find just the plug satisfying enough!

Some butt plugs have a vibrating feature with a remote control to provide new and exciting sensations.

What Are the Benefits of Using a Vibrating Butt Plug?

You may be wondering, why would putting something inside my butt and letting it sit there feel good? Well, we’re here to fill you in on butt plug uses, and the why and how a vibrating butt plug is pleasurable (and discreet).

Prostate Stimulation

The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that is located about two to three inches inside the anus. It is loaded with nerve endings, making it super-sensitive to touch. Prostates are found in people who are assigned male at birth, and they have become known as the “pleasure center,” aka the “P-Spot”.

Most people find that putting pressure on the prostate with a prostate massage can lead to intense orgasms. Thus, butt plug play can be a great way to stimulate the prostate. While an anal plug can stimulate your prostate while engaging in other sexual activities, it can also be pleasurable on its own.


Vibrating anal plugs that are designed to stimulate the prostate can be used by anyone who was assigned male at birth! They come in different sizes and are not exclusive to people with a certain gender or sexual orientation.

Using a vibrating prostate plug can take your orgasms and sexual experiences to the next level, from 0 to 100. With Vulcan, our premium vibrating anal plug, provides targeted prostate stimulation with a sense of fullness inside you – triggering multiple sensations, creating intense waves of pleasure, and mind-blowing orgasms.


Another great aspect of vibrating butt plugs is their versatility in backdoor play. Unlike other toys, like cock rings, anal plugs are often used for an extended period of time.

Anal plugs are body-safe and can be worn for a few minutes or a few hours. This means that the vibrating butt plug can be used in many different ways, while the change in vibration patterns helps mix things up a bit. You can have the butt plug in during dry humping, oral sex, long makeout sessions, and even during penetrative sex. You can even leave the anal plug in while you go about your everyday activities to make your day extra exciting.

Some people find wearing an anal plug during the day can be highly erotic. Not only will you feel a pleasurable sensation from wearing an anal plug, but it can also feel kinky and exciting to wear an anal plug when no one around you knows what’s really going on inside.

However, whether you are wearing it for 30 minutes or two hours, you want to be sure it is comfortable to use. Although it may cause an unfamiliar sensation, it should never cause pain or discomfort. Choose the material in your plug set that works for you, whether it’s stainless steel or a body-safe silicone butt plug.

Warm Up for Anal Sex

Another great benefit of butt plugs is their use in preparation for butt play. If you have never been the receiver during anal sex but you are interested in trying it out, wearing a butt plug can help prepare you for the sensations of your first anal experience.

Butt plugs can also give you an idea of your limits during anal sex. Experimenting with these sex toys will help you know how much pressure or intensity you like while doing butt stuff, like anal sex. It might also make you more relaxed and ready for anal sex, since you know you have already grown accustomed to the feeling of your prostate being stimulated.

Remember, a little discomfort in the perineum or just even in general is normal, but pain is not. If what you’re feeling is unbearable, stop immediately. Anal plugs are meant to make sexual experiences more pleasurable and provide new, exciting sensations.

Increased Intimacy

Introducing a new anal toy that is unfamiliar to you and your partner can be an exciting way to build intimacy with each other. Even if you feel like you and your partner have experienced every sexual act under the sun, from temperature play to watching prostate massage porn together, there’s always something new that can be introduced. But sometimes, it can feel a little scary.

Telling your partner you want to try something new in the bedroom takes a lot of honesty and vulnerability. However, honest communication is one of the best building blocks for a safe and happy relationship.

If you are interested in using a butt plug but still feeling a little nervous, just be open with your partner. Tell them what you are nervous about, and the two of you can work together to safely and slowly incorporate your desires into your sex life together.

How To Use a Vibrating Butt Plug

If you are a little nervous about inserting a vibrating plug for the first time – we get it! It might feel a little strange, but we promise there are a few easy steps you can follow to make the entire experience more enjoyable.

First, coat your anal plug and butthole with plenty of lube and get into a comfortable position. Then, once you are ready, take the well-lubed anal plug and insert it into your anus.

Because your anus is not self-lubricating, lube is crucial when inserting a butt plug. You will want to use a water-based lubricant, so there is no risk of deteriorating your butt plug, and also so the lube won’t stain any clothes or sheets it gets on.

Similarly, you want a thick lube to stay on long enough to make any anal play easy and comfortable. Our Wicked Jelle Water Based Lube is safe to use on butt plugs as it provides extra cushion and superior glide.

As the plug enters, it will pass through the sensitive external muscle. Then, you can angle it up about 45 degrees and push it in a little further. Rock it back and forth slowly until it is securely inside. Remember to take your time and stop if you feel any pain.

Practice deep breathing during this process so your muscles don’t tighten up. Once the anal plug is in place, you should feel a sense of fullness and pressure pushing against your prostate. You might feel like you need to pee, but that means you are doing it correctly!

To remove the plug, apply the same rocking method. Kind of like a shimmy to put on and take off a tight pair of pants. Some folx prefer to exhale during removal, but experiment and do what feels best. Most importantly, take your time. Never force removal.

Worry-Free Cleanup

Once you are finished using your butt plug, it’s important to clean it. Feel free to try using latex gloves if you are stressed about a mess. If you do not properly clean your toys after usage, there can be a build-up of bacteria, which will make them unsafe to use in the future. Cleaning can also prevent STIs from spreading through the use of the toy.

Use mild soap combined with warm water to clean the toy. If you don’t get the right soap, you run the risk of it ruining your toy or being irritating to your body. The best way to safely clean your toys is to buy a mild soap that is designed to wash sex toys.

Our Wicked Foam Toy Cleaner is the perfect way to safely clean your toys. It is an anti-bacterial, triclosan, and alcohol-free soap that is enhanced with Olive Leaf, Thyme, and Lavender Extracts, making it safe for all toy materials yet dangerous to germs.

To use this soap, simply apply the foam directly onto the toy. Allow ten to 15 seconds for the foam to sit on the toy, then rinse it with warm water and let it dry completely before storing it away. It’s that easy!

Don’t forget GIDDI’s UV Sterilizer Bag, as this all-in-one double-zipper secured bag discreetly sanitizes your sex toys in three minutes flat using UV light. This technology has been proven to kill 99.9% of germs so you can stay clean while thinking dirty.


Set up your Bluetooth with some smooth tunes, make sure all of your USB rechargeable toys are ready to roll, and set the time aside to spend together. We understand if you are hesitant to try butt plugs, but unclench your sphincter and remember the benefits of using these toys outweigh any cons.
