Beginner’s Guide to Anal Play with Romantic Depot’s Butt Plug Trio

Did you know that August is Anal Pleasure Month? That’s right! August is the month where we celebrate all things bootylicious! I bet you also didn’t know that at Romantic Depot, we carry our very own brand of body-safe silicone butt plugs that are great for beginners looking to start their exploration into the wonderful world of anal play or anyone looking to spice things up in the bedroom. Let talk about them.

How it Works

Romantic Depot’s Butt Plug Trio can be used with water-based and oil-based lubricants only. Simply apply your favorite water-based or oil-based lubricant to each plug, one at a time, and start slow, progressing to the next plug as you get more comfortable. Please note that these butt plugs cannot be used with silicone-based lubricant, as it will degrade the material of the plugs.

Tiffy’s Take

So, today is training day. I know what some of you might be thinking. Butt plugs are scary. And for one, they most definitely are not and don’t have to be!
There is so much pleasure that can come from anal play and my friends, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Butt plugs or anal toys can be worn during sex and solo play to enhance pleasure and spice things up with variety in the bedroom. Or you can just wear them around the house, out and about running errands, or even at work. Only you will know about your little secret. When it comes to owning your first butt plug, here’s your checklist:

1. A plug made with body safe materials such as silicone, glass, aluminum, or stainless steel
2. A plug with a tapered tip for easy insertion
3. A plug that gradually widens in girth for added comfort
4. A plug with a flared base that stands outside of the body to prevent travel
5. A plug appropriately sized according to your comfort level

For those entering the wonderful world of anal play, I usually recommend starting off with a softer and lighter material like silicone. It’s non-porous, meaning it doesn’t collect or hold onto bacteria and can be easily sanitized. Because silicone is soft, it works with the body rather than against it and is more comfortable to wear. A tapered tip is very important for a first butt plug purchase as it makes insertion comfortable and easy.

Luckily, Romantic Depot’s very own Butt Plug Trio meets all of the above items on the checklist. These plugs are made with body-safe silicone, have a tapered tip for easy insertion, gradually widens as inserted, has a flared base to prevent travel, and since this is a trainer kit, it has three sizes that start from the size of a pinky, to one finger, and then to the size of two fingers.

The silicone of the Butt Plug Trio is velvety smooth and has some squish to it making it very comfortable to wear. All butt plugs apart of the Butt Plug Trio offers a nice transition as they widen then tapper back into the neck and then the base. The base of all the Butt Plug Trio’s are slim yet flared, making them extremely comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. In my opinion, it is very important to when getting familiar with a new butt plug to wear it at least 10 minutes at a time. Shorter if you if it makes you feel more comfortable. If the base is too big or chunky, it can be uncomfortable to wear, which can cause the user to take it out as to get some relief. Definitely not the case here.

As you progress to the next size, you will notice not only feel a stretching sensation, the feeling of fullness will also change as well. If you are completely new to anal play, I recommend wearing the smallest plug more than one before progressing to the next size up. The key is to train your anus so it becomes comfortable with having things such as a toy or a penis inside of it. This will also help you become more comfortable with your body which is the ultimate goal.

The Run Down on Lube

It is extremely important to always use lubricant during anal play, no matter what. Since the anus does not have the ability to self-lubricate itself like a vagina can, it is very important to use lubricant in order to have the most comfortable experience possible. Lubricants are great for reducing friction and adding more cushion for the pushin. And while some things in sex are optional, I would strongly advice against the ides of forgoing lubricant in your anal play adventures.

Tiffy’s Tip: Avoid lubricants that contain the ingredient Benzocaine. Benzocaine is a numbing agent used in many desensitizing creams and lubricants. When used in the form of a cream or lubricant, it will numb the area it is applied to, inhibiting all sensations including pain. For those new to anal play, using lubricants or creams with this ingredient, can be dangerous. Pain is your body’s indicator that something is wrong or you have reached your limit in how much your body can handle. It is very important to always be in close communication with your body so that your new sexual experience is as fun and safe as possible.
