The very word Butt Plug, can immediately conjure up a few different visual images, it’s not the most arousing of terms, and perhaps that’s the reason why it may have become the forgotten sex toy.

We take a look at the origins of the butt plug, what’s on the market and just how this often overlooked and forgotten sex toy may just be your ticket to the next level of pleasure.

Butt Plug History

The very title makes me laugh, but just like many other sex toys, butt plugs have their own history, although not quite as historic as the dildo. (The world’s oldest known dildo is a siltstone 20-centimeter phallus from the Upper Palaeolithic period 30,000 years ago) But it seems the humble Butt plug can be traced back to around 1893, when they were originally designed for therapeutic uses and later marketed with terms such as Dr. Young’s Ideal Rectal Dilators.

What Makes the Butt Plug so Good?

Well unlike other anal toys, the butt plug is designed to be worn over a longer period of time, that’s what can make this overlooked little device so pleasurable. Many people enjoy wearing their plugs for the duration of their playtime, which makes many kinky techniques even more fun – spanking for instance is a totally different sensation with a butt plug. Some people even enjoy going out with a butt plug inserted all day, of course it’s not a requirement, but it can add a whole new dimension of arousal.

Butt plugs can also be worn by everyone! So, you and your partner can wear them, together, individually or separately, sex toy points right there, beats the dildo!

Another high five to the butt plug is that most butt plugs can be worn during vaginal intercourse, adding a whole new element of stimulation to intercourse.

What’s on the Market?

When you start to do your research, you’ll soon discover that there are hundreds of types out there, so, there must be something special about these little toys.

From different types of material, ranging from silicone for easy insertion to stainless steel for a feeling of fullness, and then comes the varying sizes, from the small to longer and larger for the butt plug veterans. There are so many options and enhancements, including remote controlled vibrators.

So, add some spice to your playtime routine and try a butt plug. Just remember always well lubricate your toys, and if you’re new to the butt plug scene, take it carefully and slowly.

Always clean your toys after use – and if it’s other people’s toys, give them a clean before use too. And remember that when choosing your butt plug it’s important to get toys with a sufficiently large base to avoid it slipping inside your body and making an embarrassing trip to the emergency room.
