It’s no secret, butt plugs for men have exploded in recent years. Is it because somehow the male species magically developed the desire for anal play?
I’m a go with a negative on that one.
I believe both gay and straight men have become more open to the idea of anal sex toys. While once looked at as extremely taboo (especially for straight men) it is now becoming more and more popular in mainstream society.
So, now that its “socially acceptable” for all kinds of sexual organizations to use butt plugs (that was sarcasm); lets dive deeper.
What is a butt plug for men?
A male butt plug is a sex toy designed to penetrate your anus for mind blowing waves of pleasure. They add a huge boost of pleasure for guys during sex, or solo masturbation sessions.
If you’ve ever experienced an orgasm with a butt plug in… you know exactly what I’m talking about.
A butt plug for men has a bulbous end that is usually tapered for ease of insertion into the anus. This bulbous head slims down to a very narrow neck. This allows the large diameter head to fill your anal cavity while your anus naturally clenches around the slimmer neck.
Finally, the slim neck leads to a large flared base or handle. This base prevents the butt plug from sliding in to far.
The male anus is packed with nerve endings, and internally the butt plug can stimulate the male prostate. Both provide overwhelming waves of pleasure when stimulated.
A butt plug is designed to be inserted and left in for a duration of time. It’s safe to have them in for up to 3 hours of sexual fun!
They are designed in a slightly different fashion than anal beads, which require constant insertion and removal for pleasure.
A male butt plug usually has a unique design, curved for maximum prostate pleasure.
Male Butt Plugs for Beginners
So, you’re a male, and like most men, you love two things… sex and masturbation. Perhaps you’ve used sex toys with a partner or solo in the past?
Even if it’s a vibrator on your lady friend, a cock ring with your man, or a masturbation sleeve?
Maybe you’re completely new to the sex toy world?
Whatever the case might be, you are looking for something to intensify your sex life. A boost in pleasure can come in many forms; a harder erection, lasting longer before climax, a more intense orgasm, a longer lasting orgasm… the list goes on.
There are many ways to achieve these sensations, but undoubtedly a butt plug for men has the ability to bring more pleasure and more orgasms than any other sex toy. It’s also one of the easiest ways to enhance your sex while with a partner.
How to get started?
If you’re new to butt plugs for men, just start small. Too many men have this idea that “the larger it is, the more pleasure I will receive”. This is not only incorrect; it can be harmful to your body.
Start small and work your way up in size. Typically, larger male butt plugs are not going to bring more pleasure directly. What they offer is a feeling of “fullness” that some men crave.
Like training for a marathon, you don’t start day 1 by trying to run 20 miles. It’s a process that takes months to years of development. Work your way to larger butt plugs for men if you desire. But start small.
How small should I start?
Start with finger, or a partner’s finger. Lube up both your anus and the finger. Start with small circular motions around the rim of your anus.
There are many different ways to stimulate the anus: Massaging, tapping, constant pressure, increasing pressure, small circles, large circles…
Once extremely turned on, lubed up, and stimulating the outside of the anus… Its time to insert the finger completely. Go slow and take your time with the entire process.
If you feel pain or discomfort, slowly back out. Its normal to feel some slight discomfort at first, your body isn’t used to this process yet. But once it understands this form of stimulation, it can be mind-blowing!
Next Step… Anal Toys!
While butt plugs for men are amazing, there are a variety of anal sex toys men can use. Such as anal beads or prostate toys. We will touch on these in more detail later.
Whatever the anal toy you decide to use next, keep it small to start. Use something with a max insertion diameter of 1” or less.
Make sure the flared base or handle of the butt plug is at least 1.5x the size of the largest insertable diameter. Why? It’s a matter of safety. This keeps the butt plug for men from being inserted to deep, getting lost in body.
Never use a small dildo, or anal sex toy that doesn’t have this large base or handle. A toy getting “lost” in there could result in a trip to the doctor…
Not all butt plugs for men are the same. So how do I know what’s best for me? Each kind of butt plug is designed for a specific reason. They all have their pros and cons which I will run through here.
Stainless Steel Butt Plugs:
Be careful purchasing “metal” butt plugs. They need to be made from 100% stainless steel metal or they could be dangerous. Some aluminum plugs do exist, but they must be coated in a medical grade anodization.
Extremely non-porous. Making it very easy to clean. It doesn’t hold bacteria on the surface. They never retain a smell. Are 100% waterproof. Have an amazing sexy and stylish mirror finish to them. Stainless steel are the most durable butt plug for men. They have frictionless entry with just a dab of lube. Plus, they are safe with any lube.
Doesn’t have the ability to vibrate. Rigid and will not flex. Very heavy and dense (a pro for some individuals). Costs more due to the difficulty in manufacturing process.
Silicone Butt Plugs:
Silicone sex toys are the most popular style there is. They allow for flexing and bending, and can be molded around internal components. This is how they have all the best features and still safe to penetrate with.
Just like most sex toys, be aware of the type of silicone butt plug is made from. I would only go with a trusted sex toy retailer or manufacturer (amazon is not a trusted sex toy retailer). Fortunately, some retailers have extremely high-quality medical grade butt plugs. These are great will all lubes and are velvety smooth.
Extremely powerful vibration powers can be added to them. Have waterproof capabilities. Can flex, bend, and twist to your every desire. Have the ability to be used with all lubes, otherwise good with water-based lubes. Allow for maximum features to be implemented such as Bluetooth, heating capabilities, and thrusting motions.
Industry is loaded with “knock-off sex toys” that are low quality silicone and can be harmful to the body. Not as rigid as metal or glass. More porous than metal and glass. Only some are waterproof. Not okay with oil-based lube unless stated.
Glass Butt Plugs:
Glass butt plugs for men can be a real thing of beauty. Especially when you find that favorite color swirled through crystal clear glass… Mmmmhhhh! Just nothing else like it in the world!
High-quality glass butt plugs are usually hand-blown. This takes time and someone with serious skill. For that they can cost a bit more. But if you want something you can be proud of and is also pleasurable, glass is second to none.
Pros: The beautiful look and feel they offer. Great for showing off to partner during foreplay and sex. Premium glass is shatterproof and easy to clean. Non-porous which retains no smell over time. They are all 100% waterproof.
Cons: Cheap glass can break or shatter if dropped. They do not offer the ability to vibrate. They can be a bit more expensive if hand blown by a true artist.
Prostate toys for men are slightly different than a typical butt plug. Prostate toys are designed for the sole purpose of (you guessed it)… stimulating your prostate!
The male prostate is located about 3 inches inside the anal cavity facing upwards, towards your belly button. It’s roughly the size and consistency of a walnut, and it’s packed full of nerve endings.
Located at the base of your urethra it’s sole purpose is secreting fluid during the male orgasm. So, massaging it and stimulating it gives the sensation of a male orgasm. Exactly why prostate toys are extremely pleasurable for men!
Prostate toys are usually ribbed to fit the internals of the male anal cavity and slightly curved. With a bulbous head that is pointed into the male prostate for max stimulation.
Anal Training Kits:
Anal training kits are typically 3-4 butt plugs that incrementally go up in size. This allows you to start with a small butt plug and over a period of time work your way up in size to the largest butt plug.
What’s the purpose of training your body to accept a large butt plug for men with ease?
Some men love the “fullness” of larger butt plugs. If you want to use larger butt plugs, you have to work your way up. Instead of buying a bunch of different butt plugs that go up in random sizes, might as well get them all in one methodical pack.
Anal training kits are also great for preparing yourself for anal sex. If you want to engage in anal sex, knowing you can handle something his size is reassuring.
Cock Ring Plugs:
Dual stimulating butt plugs for men allow you to strap a cock ring on that is connected to a butt plug. Some are a cock & ball ring that has a plug, while others are just the cock ring with a plug.
Because the ring and plug are attached you can control the pace and pressure of the plug based on how hard you stroke or thrust your cock.
Vibrating Butt Plugs:
Vibrating butt plugs for men offer something entirely unique. Its not a necessity, but the easiest way to experience hands free anal orgasm is with vibrating butt plugs.
The vibration allows for maximum stimulation with no effort on your part. Without the vibration, the only way to stimulate hands free are with PC muscle training exercises.
Even as a beginner, I suggest you get a butt plug with vibration. You don’t have to turn it on, but if you want to experience the power, its there as an option.
If you have no clue about anal play or if you’re going to like it. Never tested anal play even with a finger, then I suggest a plug without vibration. It will cost much less and allow you to “test the waters” at a low investment cost.
What’s Difference Between Male Butt Plugs and Female Butt Plugs?
Not much. The male anus and female anus are identical. The main difference is prostate pleasure. Butt plugs for men will have a unique design to maximize prostate stimulation.
Male butt plugs will also come in colors that often appeal more to the male gender. Beyond the curvature and color, a butt plug can really be used by all sex and sexual orientations!
Best Way for Men To Use Butt Plugs:
There are a lot of different ways that men can use butt plugs. It’s really up to you, to find the best butt plug for how you plan to use it.
If you want to show it off to a partner, and use during sex with them, perhaps you want something that looks very classy and high quality.
