A butt plug is a sex toy that you insert into your anus. These plugs come in an array of different shapes and sizes. However, what they all have in common is that they have a wide “bulb” at the top, a narrow neck in the middle, and a flared base at the bottom.

There are numerous colors and features to choose from. However, you shouldn’t buy one just because it looks cute. You should focus on purchasing a butt plug that is the right size and shape for your body.

If you’ve already bought one, but you’re not sure what to do first, then keep reading. I’ve comprised a short butt plug guide to help you get started.

Before anything, you’re going to need to do a bit of preparation. That means it’s time to clean yourself up.


The first thing you need to do is use the restroom. You need to empty your bowels several hours before using your butt plug. Once you’ve done that, it’s time to take a thorough shower. That means a detailed cleansing of your anal area. If you’re comfortable enough, it’s best to insert your finger or a small toy inside your anus, and wiggle it around a bit.

If you want to make sure you’re clean enough, apply some water-based lube onto a larger toy and into yourself, and continue cleaning.

One way to make sure you’re 100% squeaky clean is to use a douche a couple hours prior to using your plug. The most popular types of anal douche devices are the shower douche, the water bag douche, and the bulb douche. You can use whichever one you prefer. Just don’t overdo it, since douching flushes away the protective lining in your anus.


In case you didn’t already know, butt plugs can be used in more ways than one. Some people like to use a butt plug to help dilate their anus before engaging in anal sex. On the other hand, you can also use it during sex, to increase pleasure. If you’re adventurous, a great way to use a butt plug is to wear it underneath your clothes, in public. It all depends on your sexual preferences.

However, one rule remains the same. Before you insert the plug, you need to lube up! There are many different lubricants to choose from, so pick your favorite, and apply plenty of it. It’s extremely important to do so, or else you may hurt yourself.

Once you’re relaxed and lubed up, you need to get into a position that’s most comfortable for you. Next, slowly insert the butt plug into your anus. Remember, do it very slowly.

Don’t worry if it feels strange once it’s inside. The first time is always like that. Only remove it if you feel any pain or intense discomfort. If not, you’ve inserted your plug properly. Now, what you do next is completely up to you!


Removing your butt plug is simple. You just need to remember to stay as relaxed as possible and push it out, as if you were using the bathroom.

No matter how clean you are, it’s essential to clean your butt plug after using it. Disinfecting your plug will ensure that you’ve gotten rid of any residual bacteria from it.

If you’re using a non-porous plug that’s made of heat-resistant material, then the best way to clean it is by submerging it in boiling water. You should leave it in for about ten minutes, then take it out and leave it to dry.

Silicone butt plugs shouldn’t be cleaned the same way, as they might end up melting. Instead, use warm water and soap to clean them.

Remember to clean your toy each time before and after using it.
