For those interested in venturing into back-door play (aka booty play, aka anal sex, aka whatever else you want to call it), then butt plugs are the perfect beginner toy for you to play around with. According to data collected from nearly 5,000 couples on Simpatic.us (a site that helps couples find their mutual sex interests), 21 percent of women in a relationship say they have interest in using and/or wearing a butt plug—and nearly 53 percent of men in a relationship would be down for the fun, too.
Not only do they come in all different shapes and sizes depending on what you’re looking for, but they tend to be more enjoyable for women who find anal sex to be too much.
“Butt plugs tend to be smaller, cone-shaped, and, in general, just easier to get in. They’re also more of a ‘get it in and forget about it’ thing, while you and your S.O. play in other ways to help maximize pleasure, instead of increased/steady pressure like penetration,” says Lizzie, 28.
“With plugs, you can choose the size. With men, not so much. And with anal sex for me, it can be very uncomfortable and intense. Anal plugs are my happy medium,” says Kaley, 28.
So if you’re interested in sampling the sensations a butt plug can provide in order to spice up your sex life, click through the following butt plugs that are perfect for whatever occasion you’re looking for. Oh, and they don’t exactly break the bank either—you’re welcome. Take a peek at this list (very generously narrowed down to 22 plugs) and find the one that speaks to you.
