Your Beginner Butt Plug Essentials

A plug with a t-bar base instead of a round base will fit snugly between your cheeks, allowing you to walk about without chafing. For those with a vagina and who want to fill both holes simultaneously, a round base will be better suited. Here are some other essentials to consider when buying a beginner butt plug.

Lovehoney Discover Water-Based Anal Lubricant

Lovehoney Discover Water-Based Anal Lubricant   - Your Beginner Butt Plug Essentials
The real rule of using a butt plug is to use lube. The anus is not self-lubricating, so it is vital that you use a lubricant. When using a silicone plug, you should use a water-based lube. If you’re using a glass or stainless-steel beginner butt plug, silicone lubricant is a fantastic option because it’s thicker and typically lasts for longer. This water-based formula doesn’t stain sheets or clothing unlike oil-based lubes. It is also compatible with latex and polyurethane condoms for slippery safe sex Remember that silicone-based lubes are not compatible with silicone-based toys — silicone attracts to itself, so using the two together can warp your plug and create a tacky texture.

Lovehoney Anal Douche

Lovehoney Anal Douche - Your Beginner Butt Plug Essentials
Douching can make you feel more confident and cleaner before anal play. Use a douche 30 minutes before play to enjoy an effective clean. Simply unscrew the nozzle and fill the main bulb with room-temperature water. Then lubricate the nozzle with a water-based lubricant and insert the tip carefully inside the anus. Squeeze it gentle and allow the water to flow inside. Remove the douche and wait for the water to natural expel.

Which Size Butt Plug is Best For Beginners?

For beginner butt plug users, we recommend starting with a 1″-1.25″ diameter plug. The best way to know what is right for your beginner butt plug needs, play with your fingers. Lube them up, see how many fingers you can insert and then measure the circumference. If and when you want to size up your plug, we recommend going up to 1″ in circumference or 0.25″-0.3″ in diameter. This should give you a challenging, yet fun stretch that won’t cause too much damage. Any bigger and you could hurt yourself.    

How to Use a Beginner Butt Plug

Beginner butt plugs don’t have to be intimidating, in fact they can be fun to use during sex or alone during masturbation. If you are a beginner, either with a vagina or a genius, butt plugs are a fantastic place to start. Wearing a butt plug during any kind of sex act can enhance your pleasure and orgasms, thanks to the nerve endings around the anus. Beginner butt plugs are also great if you want to learn how to prepare for anal sex. Here are some tips on how to use a butt plug and maximise your pleasure. Remember, anal play is not supposed to hurt!

Clean Up

Clean Up

The first step to using a beginner butt plug is cleanliness. Waste is stored in your upper bowel, not in your anal canal where the butt plug will be inserted, so you shouldn’t be too worried about fecal matter. Have a little cleanup or use a chemical-free wet wipe before engaging in anal play.



You also shouldn’t go straight for inserting the plug, like vaginas, anal play also requires foreplay to prepare the body. You wouldn’t go from kissing straight to penetration, so don’t go straight to using a butt plug.

Lube Up

Lube Up

Lube up, inhale and slowly press the beginner butt plug your anus. How you insert it and in which position comes down to personal preference. Some people do it themselves, whilst others prefer it with a partner. The two muscles known as the sphincter around the entrance to the anus need to be relaxed. As a beginner, you may want to breathe deeply and bear down as you insert the toy for the first time.

Remove Gently

Remove Gently

To remove a butt plug, gently pull it out while taking slow and steady breaths. Alternatively, have your partner hold the base and slide it out for you. You may find it easier to remove if you have orgasmed during anal play as orgasms naturally relax the pelvic floor.

Don't be judgemental

Don't be judgemental

Regardless of your gender identity and sexuality, you can use and enjoy a butt plug. It’s simply a myth that all people with vaginas don’t enjoy anal play. A butt plug can be hugely pleasurable for women as well as straight, gay and bisexual males. Whilst people with penises have their own G-sport known as a prostate, which can be stimulated anally. Buttplay can still feel amazing, even if you don’t have a prostate, as lots of little nerve endings live down there.

Use alongside oral

Use alongside oral

A butt plug creates more pressure on the back vaginal wall, increasing the level of sensation a person experiences. Many people like to use one whilst receiving oral sex, as orgasmic contractions around a butt plug can be intensely pleasurable.

How to clean your beginner butt plug

It is important to your health and pleasure that you use safe and clean butt plugs. No matter how clean your rectum is, a badly cleaned butt plug will have residual bacterial. How they are cleaned will depend on the type of material a beginner butt plug is made from. Always read the box your beginner butt plug came in to see the material, some products will even come with advice on how to clean it. Non-porous plugs are made from materials like silicone, glass and stainless steel. For heat-resistant materials like glass and stainless steel, submerge them in boiling water for around 10 minutes before leaving the plug to cool. Non-heat-resistant materials like silicone should be washed like a porous beginner butt plug, using mild soap and lukewarm water. You can boil silicone plugs but it must be made using high-grade materials, otherwise warping may occur. It is important to clean your beginner butt plug both before and after you use it, every single time that you use it. There should be no exceptions.


Generally, butt plugs are made out of one of three materials. Silicone is the softest material, velvet to the touch and comes in lots of different colors. Stainless steel is glittering and a little more threatening, usually in silver or black shades, with a cool texture. Finally, glass is sturdy yet delicate, visually pleasing and can be used hot or cold. Silicone is best for beginner butt plugs as it’s soft and yielding to the touch. Silicone plugs have a similar feeling to human skin as it naturally adjust to the warm or the cold. Although stainless steel looks daunting, it is easy to clean and ideal for temperature play. Glass butt plugs are popular for their aesthetic appeal, as they often come in beautiful colors and elegant patterns.

If you’ve never used a butt plug before, we’d recommend starting with 5-10 minutes per session. You can gradually work your way up to the recommended 20-30 minute maximum.

In order to have a prostate orgasm, you’ll need to have a plug that’s long enough to stimulate your prostate! Although optional, vibrations may be helpful as well.

As long as your butt plug has an adequately flared base (or a t-bar base) then you can walk around with it in! The process is just like normal walking, but the sensation will take some getting used to. We’d recommend testing the waters behind closed doors before venturing out into the public eye!

Jelly is actually one of the worst beginner butt plug materials! Yes, it’s usually cheap, but that’s because it’s a low-quality material. Not only is it porous (which means it can’t be sanitized), jelly often contains phthalates (chemicals used to soften plastics that are linked to long-term health complications).

What is a beginner butt plug?

A beginner butt plug is a toy that is inserted into your anus and stays there as you play. A plug provides stimulation by staying in place rather than being thrust in and out. A beginner butt plug will have a tapered end to help entre, a large bulb for the sphincter to rest against, and a thin neck and a flared base to ease removal. It is important that a beginner butt plug has a flared base, otherwise, there is a chance the body will suck it up and it will become stuck in the colon.
