Why do we enjoy butt plugs so much?
Now I understand that not everyone does enjoy using them, but those that do, really enjoy them. Take my lovely submissive, sub'r'; she loves nothing more than to be plugged for long periods and can orgasm from just pulling it out after an extended period of wearing it.
Anyone who enjoys butt plugs loves them for two main reasons, in my opinion. They are the feeling of being full and stretched open, and the exquisite sensations they deliver to your sphincter, which is packed with nerves.
Why do some people love butt plugs and others hate them?
I guess it often boils down to the subject of hygiene, lots of people don't fancy the extra cleaning involved with butt plugs. Let's face it pulling on out and finding it shall we say a little dirty is not a pretty picture. Those of us who use them get used or cleaning them thoroughly after use.
Some people think that butt plugs will ruin their sphincter control and this isn't true unless you are playing with really large plugs. The anal sphincter is a muscle just like the vagina. As such, it is capable of opening up and shrinking again over and over again.
A regular butt plug is not going to 'ruin' you just as relieving yourself in the toilet doesn't. The trick is to stay within your limits. For instance, I wouldn't recommend a beginner tackle the Decimator E-Stim Electrode as you need years of training to accommodate something that big.
On the other hand, most people are capable of handling small to medium-sized butt plugs with ease. The trick as with anal sex it to use lots of lube and to relax. Relaxing the sphincter helps it stretch, clenching does the opposite. Any advice for anal sex is just as valid when you are thinking of butt plug play.
Butt plugs come in all shapes and sizes as well as lots of different materials.
Material choice is basically down to personal preference but make sure you choose a butt plug made from a non-porous material.
Cheap butt plugs, especially ones marketed as "jelly" toys look nice but are a ticking time bomb. They leak dangerous chemicals, the surface is porous, and so bacteria will grow inside your plug. You cannot clean this type of toy so steer clear of them.
Metal and glass butt plugs are popular for their smooth surfaces and solid nature. They do not give at all, and you know you have one fitted. This type of material is also fantastic for temperature play.
Warm-up a butt plug or chill it for a lovely sensation that can be a lot of fun.
Silicone butt plugs are my favourite. Silicone is non-porous, and it contains no latex or phthalates, this makes it the perfect sex toy material. Silicone also comes in lots of different firmness ratings giving you a vast choice in how the butt plug feels.
Silicone plugs are fantastic as there is some give to them, and that makes them comfortable to wear for extended periods.
Lube is essential when playing with butt plugs as you don't naturally produce your own lube "back there". I like to use silicone lube with my glass and metals butt plugs as it lasts for an extremely long time. This makes removal an easy task as water-based lubes can dry out over time.
If you are using silicone lube with a silicone sex toy, try some on it first. I have never had a problem, but if you are using a cheap silicone sex toy, it may be worth checking it out before inserting it.
E-Stim butt plugs
I can't finish without mentioning e-stim butt plugs, there are available in metal or conductive rubber and allow you to tease yourself actively.

Butt plugs are so much fun, the pleasure that can be hard just having one inside you is fantastic. It can make vaginal sex more fun too, as wearing one during sex can make you feel tighter. Place the tip of a vibrator against one when fitted, and it will blow your mind.
They are a great way to relax before having some anal sex too.
As wearing one is discreet, you can use one to tease yourself while out and about, imagine spicing up your next shopping trip.
