Is this about anal sex?

Well, yes and no. Not anal sex per se – but anal pleasure, more like it. For anyone who understands the way the human body works, they know that the anal area is very sensitive as it has a relatively high concentration of nerve endings which increase sexual pleasure to touch (or lick). The anus can be an erogenous zone, making anal intercourse pleasurable.

For those who have tried anal pleasure or are willing to, there doesn’t necessarily have to be a penis involved in the game. That’s why there are butt plugs. Yay!

Here, we’re breaking down some prejudice by answering questions you may be interested in and tackling the directions to serve you well on your quest for a perfect butt plug.

Shall we?

Why do men use butt plugs?

Regardless of their sexual orientation, men are basically wired to enjoy anal penetration.

How so? Well, “the prostate is an incredibly sensitive gland that feels especially sexy when stroked and it’s located about two to three inches up on the anterior (front) wall of the anus”. This is why straight men tend to enjoy being fondled by their ladies “down there”, who often use a finger (sometimes tongue), while gay men explore the pleasure way more thoroughly.

Prostate milking is a term that references an orgasm and/or ejaculation just from having the prostate massaged.

And that’s not all. These orgasms are said to feel more intense than penis-stimulated orgasms, causing the whole body to spasm with climactic energy. Woah!

So, what’s the role of a butt plug, you ask?

Well, wearing a curved butt plug helps make sure you’re hitting just the right spot. Plus, if there is a special male prostate toy included – that means added prostate stimulation pleasure and makes everything from enjoying masturbation to taking your partner doggie style (or any way!) to receiving oral sex to feel more sensational.

However, this time around it’s not about the prostate (only); “as the pelvic floor muscles begin to contract during orgasm, the anal muscles contract around the plug”, making the spasms feel stronger, more intense and pleasurable with an improved duration of your climax.

Still unsure why use a butt plug? Of course not.

Why do women use butt plugs?

A great sex myth states women don’t enjoy anal sex but do it to make their partner happy. It’s simply not true. A butt plug creates more pressure on the back vaginal wall, which makes her enjoy penetration more intensely, whether from a dildo, vibrator or her partner’s penis. Women tend to enjoy using a butt plug while receiving oral sex.

At climax, “orgasmic contractions around a butt plug feel more intense than without, and stimulate the nerve endings around the anus that usually get overlooked”. There you go.
