Butt plugs are shorter than other anal sex toys and are more suited to someone who is beginning to extend the horizons of anal play. Butt plugs help stretch your rectal muscles over time, so you can be ready for some good anal probing once the butt plug has been in there for some time. A good lube is always recommended for use with butt plugs so insertion is easy. The flanged base of most butt plugs allows probing without the risk of the sex toy getting lost deep inside the user.
Use for masturbation or for couple play to enhance sexual pleasures and opening up to new possibilities.
