What is the best way to choose a butt plug?
As a guide on how to choose a butt plug it’s always best to start with smaller sizes and slowly work your way up. The key to a good quality butt plug is that they are smooth and don’t have any sharp surfaces that could scratch the delicate lining of the anal canal. Softer materials like rubber, silicone and vinyl make for great toys as they are soft yet firm enough to allow easy insertion. If you are allergic to rubber you need to avoid latex or rubber anal toys.
How do I get started using a butt plug?
When getting started with any form of anal play the key to success is starting slow and steady. Start with a smaller size anal toys, slowly working up to larger sizes. If you try to rush too big too fast this can lead to scratching, tearing or damage to the tissues of the anal canal that may cause scaring and loss of enjoyment.

How to choose the best lube for my anal toys?
When it comes to choosing a lubricant for butt plugs there are many choices. Below are the suggested lubes for different butt plugs.
For Vinyl Toys:
You can use any sort of lube. Silicone, oil based or water based lubes will work great with vinyl toys.
For Rubber or Latex Toys:
You need to avoid using oil based lubes. Oil based lubes will destroy rubber and latex. It’s best to use water based or silicone based lubes with rubber toys.

How long is too long to wear a butt plug?
If you notice any pain, discomfort or bleeding, it’s important to take the plug out immediately. Deeper than 2-3 inches into the anus there are no longer pain receptors like in the skin, so sensations of discomfort may be different. If you get cramps, feel irritable or feeling of bloating these can also be signs of damage so be sure to remove the toy straight away.
If at any time there is pain, bleeding or discomfort that lasts longer than a few minutes after removal of a butt plug, seek medical help immediately.
How to clean anal toys?
To clean butt plugs simply wash off any fecal matter that may be on the toy under hot water. Then soap up your hands with antibacterial soap and give them a good clean under hot water. It’s best to avoid using scrubbing tools or brushes as this can scratch the surfaces of the toy leading to scratching of the anus and damage to the toy.
Allow the toy to air dry then pack away for later use. Placing toys next to each other can lead to damage of the toy so it’s best to place each toy into an individual zip lock bag before packing away. This will keep them clean and fresh for your next play session.
