Butt Plugs for Beginners
There comes a time when sex becomes a bit underwhelming. Those of you in a committed relationship know exactly what we mean!
You learn to anticipate every move your partner will make, and your partner can say the same things in the bedroom.
If you notice that you’re stuck in a rut, then it’s time to change things up a bit. A great place to start would be with some anal play!
Learning The Basics
When anal play is done exactly right, it can be one of the most pleasurable things in the world.
However, just like with any new activity, there are levels you need to go through before you can become an expert.
Butt plugs are no exception.
Step #1: Start slow
Before you rush off to your local sex shop, you should consider easing into things first. What we mean by things is that you should consider preparing your anal area by starting out with your fingers.
If you prefer, you can even play with yourself in the shower.
Once you feel comfortable with inserting your fingers into your anus, it’s time to go shopping for your very first butt plug!
Step #2: Ask An Employee For Suggestions
You're already in a sex shop, so there’s no need to be shy about asking for some suggestions on which butt plug is best for beginners.
One thing you should keep in mind is that your first butt plug is going to be pretty small. In fact, you should probably opt for a finger sized plug to get you started.
Step #3: Test Out Your New Toy
Now that you’ve purchased your new toy, it’s time to test it out! If you’re unsure how to get things going, don’t worry — we’re here to help.
Namely, the best way to properly insert your anal toy is to lay on your side and curl your legs. In case you’re wondering why we’re recommending this position, the explanation is simple.
This semi-fetal position will help relax the muscles in your anal area and make inserting the butt plug a breeze.
Also, another incredibly important thing you should remember is to never use numbing cream.
If your anal area is numb, then you won’t be able to tell if you’re too forceful when inserting the toy, so you may end up seriously hurting yourself.
The only thing you should be using is plenty of lube. And that’s it!
Basically, you should use your beginner butt plug for a while, at least until you get used to it.
Knowing When To Upgrade
There’s never an exact moment to upgrade. It’s more of a feeling that’s different for everyone.
If you’ve been using your beginner plug for a while now, and you’re completely used to the sensation you get when inserting it, then you may want to explore other options.
Ultimately, now you can look for something larger than your first butt plug. However, it’s still not time to grab the biggest plug you can find.
You are now at the intermediate stage, and you need an intermediate plug.
Yet again, there are no set rules for what size you should get. Browse through the butt plugs in a sex shop and see which ones look appealing to you. More importantly, check which ones seem like they’re the appropriate size for you.
Ultimately, no one knows your body better than you do.
Get To Know Your New Toy
Now all you have to do is enjoy getting to know your new toy. The same rules apply as with the beginner butt plug. You need to use plenty of lube, no numbing cream, and you need to take it slow.
Use your plug until you feel completely comfortable with it, and then (only if you feel like it), you can upgrade to a larger one.
However, if you like how the beginner and intermediate butt plugs make you feel, then there’s no need to purchase a new one. It’s completely up to you!
Butt plugs are the perfect sex toys to spice up your sex life. Whether you’re planning on using your plug alone, or with your partner, these tips will help you ease into the experience.
