Attention! If any "trend" has dominated the bedroom (or at least, the bedroom conversation) over the past couple of years, it's showing the butt some love. But anal sex is nothing if not intimidating—which is where butt plugs come into play (literally).
You should never go from zero to penis. It will most likely hurt and create a negative first experience.
The answer is to engage in "anal training," where you test the waters with a finger or toy and work your way up to bigger girths (including a real live penis or strap-on). This crucial method helps the anal muscles acclimate to penetration, lowering your risk of tearing and pain.
Another crucial tip for reducing your risk: Use more lube than you even think you need—just never silicone lube for silicone toys, which can break down the material.
Of course, it's also worth noting that even if anal sex isn't your end (ha) goal, butt plugs can bring a lot of pleasure and excitement to your sex life. So without any further ado: Here are the best butt plugs on the market, to heat things up: Click here to shop
