Our review method: how we tested and reviewed the best butt plugs
When it comes to sex toys, we know that there’s no one-size-fits all – especially when it comes to butt toys! Without bragging, we at Bedbible would consider ourselves true butt connoisseurs. With 500 sex toy reviews written by sexperts from all over the world, we know what makes a good sex toy.
And when it came to butt plugs, we really put the time in to find the best toys to recommend to our readers. Our butt plug review was a labor of love – our team spent over 50+ hours researching toys, reviewing every type of butt plug, analyzing the reviews and writing up all the important info for you to read here.
We reviewed each model according to the following factors: price, quality, body safety, design, and overall experience. The result? No spin, no fluff, no gushing over bad toys. Just the best butt plugs and authentic reviews from people like you. Let’s dive in, shall we?
How to Find Your Perfect Butt Plug
Before rushing off to spend some quality time with your butt plug, here are some of the most important factors to consider before settling on the toy you want:
- Size – One of the most important things to take into consideration before buying a butt plug is its size. If your butt plug is too small, it’s not going to feel great, but if it’s too big, you won’t even manage to get it in!
- Shape – The most common butt plug shape is slightly acorn-esque and girthy, but you don’t have to go straight for a girthy toy! Some butt toys have curved tips, making them more optimised for stimulating the prostate.
- Materials – When buying a toy that is going to be used exclusively in the anus, you’re going to want to prioritize the highest quality materials. We recommend opting for non-porous materials for butt plugs. (Metal, silicone, glass.)
- Functions – Do you want a vibrating butt plug, or a butt plug that can be adapted for sensation play?
- What do you want to stimulate? If you want to stimulate the pressure nerves in the anus, a girthier butt plug is ideal. For p-spot stimulation, go for a curved tip!
- Experience level – Another of the most important factors to take into consideration – experience! It’s always best to start off with beginner butt plugs and work your way up to the more advanced toys.
- Price – If your budget is limited, we made to sure to include some cheaper alternatives in our review. You don’t need to compromise on quality when it comes to buying cheap sex toys – you just have to let us help you find the best ones!
What Size Butt Plug is Best for Me?
Size is one of the most important factors to consider when buying a butt plug. You can typically buy butt plugs in the following sizes:
- Extra small – for total anal first-timers
- Small – ideal for beginners
- Medium – best suited to those who
- Extra large

What is a butt plug?
A butt plug is a typically girthy sex toy inserted into the anus. A butt plug can be used to dilate the anus before anal sex or simply procure anal pleasure. A butt plug will usually come with a flared base in order to prevent the toy from getting stuck in the rectum. Butt plugs can be used solo or during sex with a partner, and come in different varieties. You can find vibrating butt plugs, jewel butt plugs, thrusting butt plugs and more!

The 11 Best butt plugs in Test
njoy Pure Plug Medium Stainless Steel Butt Plug
For intermediate butt plug enthusiasts, this stainless steel butt plug from the sexperts at nJoy is pocket-sized perfection. Completely smooth for easy insertion and weighted for enhanced sensations, this butt plug offers firm sensations and moderate fullness. The best thing about this butt plug? It adapts itself to your body temperature, so you don’t need to worry about cold steel hitting that delicate skin in and around your tush.
At Bedbible, we’re big fans of stainless steel. Not only is it easy to clean and store, but high-quality stainless steel can truly go the distance with the right maintenance. That’s just one of the reasons we picked this butt plug as our test winner – with some proper TLC, it’ll be with you for decades to come. Other pro points: the weighted feel makes it ideal even for advanced users, while intermediate users can also use it thanks to this model’s dimensions. The tapered tip also makes for easy insertion, so this toy gets an all-round thumbs up from us.
Anal Adventures Platinum Wave Silicone Butt Plug
For bulbed sensations on a budget, you can’t go wrong with this silicone butt plug by Anal Adventures. Under $20, you’ll get a body-safe butt plug, complete with a secure anchor to keep it in place in your booty. The firm hold and bulbed nature of this toy makes it ideal for wear during sex or foreplay with a partner. Or use it to treat yourself alone – this plug works either way.
Cheap and cheerful sometimes does the trick, and that’s why we love this silicone butt plug. You really don’t need to compromise on quality when buying sex toys on a budget, and this toy is the proof. One point we’d make is that the butt plug shaft itself might not be ideal for advanced users, or those who prefer intense “filling” sensations. Otherwise, this handy and affordable toy is perfect for throwing in your toy box (or cupboard, if you’re something of a collector!)
Doc Johnson Mood Naughty Small Silicone Butt Plug
Getting started with anal play isn’t always easy – it can take time to work up to penetration. And when you do finally get there, this little butt plug by Doc Johnson is perfect. Smoothly textured and 0.9 inches in diameter, it’s ideal for those experimenting or finding their feet with butt play. Make sure to combine it with lots of water-based lube to ensure things run smoothly – pun absolutely intended!
This petit butt plug should be your first port-of-call if you’re a beginner wanting to up your anal play game. It’s so versatile and easy to use – just slide the butt plug in using the tapered tip (and lots of lube!) and guide yourself with the sensations. With a secure flared base, you can even wear this butt plug during foreplay. It’s even discreet enough to be able to wear in public – just make sure it’s lodged in firmly to avoid any awkward moments when walking up stairs!
Power Gem Rechargeable Vibrating Silicone Butt Plug 3 Inch
We don’t judge a sex toy by its cover, but a pretty exterier does make us stop and take a second look! Luckily, this pretty jewelled butt plug has looks AND the power to take your butt play up a notch. With a thick vibrating shaft and velvety smooth texture, this butt plug is perfect for all kinds of play. We’d recommend combining this butt plug with masturbation or wearing it with a partner during foreplay – you’ll love the blended sensations combined with the firm texture and fullness.
This pretty butt plug is pretty versatile, and we feel confident recommending it for almost any kind of butt play. Because the shaft isn’t as secure when worn as some of the longer or more textured butt plugs, you might prefer to use it to prep for anal sex than wear during sex. After all, a butt plug that keeps falling out will probably be a bit of a mood killer. Whether you use it alone or with a partner, your jewelled tush will look a million bucks.
Lovehoney Bumper Booty Bundle Anal Sex Toy Kit (6 Piece)
With so many butt plug and anal toy options, why not just buy them all? That’s the philosophy behind this anal kit from Lovehoney, which features two butt plugs, two ridged anal dildos, an anal douche and a bullet vibrator. And all for under $60 – not bad at all. What’s great about this set is that you get to experiment not just with lots of different lengths and girths, but different textures. The anus is highly receptive to textures, and your body will naturally prefer certain stimulation over others. With this fun, body-safe kit, you’ll be able to discover what makes your tush tick.
To be clear, this kit is definitely for beginners. If you’re looking for an advanced anal training kit, this isn’t for you – the models are just simply too small. But if you’re a beginner, you’ll get a lot out of this kit – and make sure to make use of the bullet vibrator that’s included. You can use the bullet vibe to enhance the anal experience by inserting it into the toys, but NOT by inserting it alone – there’s no flared base. The only thing this kit lacks is a tube of lube – but you can get that here while you’re making your purchase. Simple.
b-Vibe Snug Plug 2 Medium Weighted Silicone Butt Plug 4 Inch
Perfectly tapered and lightly weighted, this cute butt plug from b-vibe combines high-quality with innovative design. The velvety smooth silicone feels amazing upon insertion, while the butt plug remains manageable when it comes to dimensions. You won’t forget that you’re wearing this butt plug, but it’s definitely comfortable. While the dimensions are great for intermediate users, the weighted feel gives the advanced users something to enjoy too. All round, a fab little weighted butt plug.
Overall, this butt plug is a little on the pricey side. But, if you’re looking to invest in high-quality sex toys, this toy from b-vibe does check all the boxes. Silicone? Yes. Weighted? Yes. Tapered? Yes. One thing we would advise is to test out other weighted butt plugs before stepping up and buying the more expensive brands. You’ll want to make sure you love weighted sensations before forking out for this sex toy. But if you do love a weighty feel on a butt plug, you’ll be sure to fall in love with this little number.
Nexus Ace Large Extra Quiet Remote Control Vibrating Butt Plug 5 Inch
Okay, we’ll say it first. This is a pretty huge butt plug. Even for us, and we’re seasoned butt plug experts.

b-Vibe Remote Control Rechargeable Vibrating Rimming Butt Plug
If you thought you’d already tried every type of butt plug – big, small, textured, smooth, steel, any butt plug on offer – you haven’t yet tried the rimming butt plug! Using rotating vibrations to simulate a licking tongue, this vibrator really does take the butt play experience to an entire new level. With a remote control feature, this butt plug is perfect for surrending to your partner and enjoying sensations you never thought you’d get from a toy. Pair this butt plug with some light bondage for the ultimate experience.
While this butt plug will offer out-of-this-world sensations, it will cost you! Over $100, this butt plug isn’t particularly budget friendly. However, if you’re looking to really invest in your pleasure and your toys, we really do feel confident recommend this toy. It’s unique, it’s suitable for all genders, and the sensations can’t truly be replicated with a regular anal vibrator. Splash the cash if you have it – if not, check out some of our more budget-friendly anal toy reviews.
Lovense Hush App Controlled Rechargeable Vibrating Butt Plug 4 Inch
If you’re in a long-distance relationship, the lack of intimacy is often only worsened by the difficulty in finding new, creative ways to have some fun when you’re not physically togeyher. And that doesn’t even take into account the technology problems that can occur – it’s hard to have a sexy video chat when Skype freezes you mid-sneeze, right? With this app-controlled butt plug, you can indulge in some butt play with your partner, even if you’re separated by an ocean or a continent.
With rumbly vibrations, app-control and a smooth, velvety texture, we’d highly recommend this butt plug to all couples of all genders. It’s especially useful for those navigating a long-distance relationship, as you can control the functions directly in the app. It’s also perfect for solo use – imagine the fun you could have masturbating if you combined a remote-control butt plug with a butterfly vibrator or wearable vibrator? However you use it, we love this toy from Lovense and highly recommend it for those with a larger budget.
Fun Factory Bootie Medium Silicone Anal Plug - Black
Ideal for solo exploration, this prostate butt plug offers a tapered tip and bulb-esque texture that guarantees dreamy p-spot stimulation. It’s not a vibrator, but it doesn’t need it – it’s best suited for firm stimulation to the p-spot area, and is best suited to an intermediate butt plug user.
Sometimes, simple works best. This p-spot butt plug is fuss-free and simple, but the curved shaft is far from ordinary. With this butt plug, you’ll get firm p-spot stimulation and a sensation of fullness that can be paired with penis stimulation or regular masturbation. You can also wear this butt plug during sex – the shaft is wide and stable, and will help the butt plug sit securely in place during play.
B-Vibe Unicorn Plug Limited Edition Set
If you’re into fun and unique butt plugs, you’ll love this unicorn set by b-vibe. This blue butt plug comes with a detachable tail, so even if you’re not into the tailed look, you can still enjoy this fun set for some anal play. It’s important to note that this butt plug is super textured and ridged – if you’re a beginner, or if you don’t like ridged sensations, it’s not for you. However, if you love the textured feel – along with some vibrations – you’ll love this.
For what you get, I think this kit is a little too pricey. There are other butt plug sets that do more for less, in my view. That being said, I understand that the toy is catering to a particular niche, so if you love the colors and unique feel of this butt plug, I’d say go for it. There’s nothing to complain about when it comes to the butt plug itself – the textures provide enhanced sensations while the vibrations add an extra dimension. Just don’t forget that all-important lube!

Butt Plug Safety
For an all-round safe and pleasurable experience when using a butt plug of any genre, make sure to take these important bits of advice into account:
Flared Base ALWAYS
When you’re using butt toys, the most important thing to remember is to use a toy with a flared base. A flared base is going to prevent the toy from getting stuck in your butt – literally. You’d be surprised how many emergency rooms in the US deal with thousands of patients every year turning up with mysterious objects that just happened to get stuck in their, ahem, rear end. Be safe and be considerate to your local healthcare practitioners – and always go for flared!
Lube, lube, lube
You don’t take the back route without a generous (and we really do mean generous) helping of lube! Lube is going to help to protect your anus from from fissures or cuts linked to friction or rapid movements. Lube will allow you to explore your toys without discomfort – so stock up! Our favorite is the Lovehoney Water-based anal lube, which is vegan friendly and expertly designed for butt play.
Protect your tush
When you’re getting started with butt plugs, you’ll want to go for smooth textures. Avoid anything too ridged or textured when you’re beginning, as these can tear the delicate skin in and around the anus. When you’re more experienced, you can slowly incorporate more textures toys into your routine.
And please DON'T do this...
Whatever you do, do NOT use any anal numbing creams. Numbing creams suspend any sensations of pain that you might experience either during anal sex or anal play with a toy. But we NEED to be able to hear our body when it talks to us. When our bodies send us pain signals, it means that something is wrong. Put simply, if we are unable to receive these pain signals during anal play, we won’t be aware if we’re going too far and causing damage to the delicate skin and tissue back there. So NEVER use numbing cream (even if it’s marketed as “safe” – the “safe” will typically refer to the formula.)
How are Butt Plugs Different From Other Anal Toys?
Butt plugs are commonly known as the go-to anal toy for those interested in anal play. Here’s how a butt plug differs from other types of anal toys:
Butt Plug vs. Anal Beads
While anal beads might seem pretty intimidating, the concept behind this toy is pretty simple – and it can feel amazing when used correctly! Anal beads are basically lots of bead or nubs, attched to a cord, which is then inserted into the anus. The beaded texture stimulates the nerves in the anus during both insertion and removal, making it ideal for some anal fun.
The main difference between a butt plug and anal beads is that a butt plug is much typically girthier and smooth in texture, while the anal beads are thin but heavily ribbed (well, beaded.) Both these anal toys come in vibrating versions if you want to take your anal play up a notch.
Butt Plug vs. Anal Vibrator
Anal vibrators are different from butt plugs in the fact that they’re buzzy (or rumbly) and designed to create pleasure waves via internal vibrations. You can also find anal vibrators in a large variety of shapes, while butt plugs tend to be girthy and acorn-shaped.
Butt Plug vs. Anal Dildos
Like anal vibrators, Anal dildos come in all shapes, sizes, and forms. While a butt plug is typically designed to remain static in the anus (aka you don’t need to push it in and out of the anus), an anal dildo is designed to penetrate the anus. This can be done either manually using your hands, or via a suction cup. That’s pretty much the main difference between a butt plug and an anal dildo. Anal dildos are also typically more diverse, while most butt plugs conform to a certain style and are best used during foreplay.
How to use a butt plug
Here are some sexpert-certified tips on having a great experience using a butt plug:
If you’re using a butt plug for the first time, you’re going to need to relax before you can proceed with your toy. Tensing up is going to make it difficult for you to insert the butt plug, so relax with your partenr (or yourself!) and don’t feel pressurized into this type of play. You can always leave it for another day if the idea stresses you out.
Play with the butt
Butt play isn’t just about penetration – get some foreplay in there and really build your arousal. Have your partner massage your buttocks, anus and inner thighs to build excitement and peak your arousal.
Lube is one of the most important things to think about when you’re testing out anal play. The anus, unlike the vagina, does not self-lubricate, so you’re going to run into problems with chafing, tightness and pain if you go in without lube. Always use a water-based lube, applying a generous amount to your toy and your anus before insertion.
Get other toys involved
Boost your arousal further by getting some other toys involved – reach for your favorite bullet vibrator or magic wand vibrator to help you get in the mood and get as turned on as possible. Once the butt plug has been inserted, you can continue using your toys to enjoy intense, blended sensations.
Once you’re comfortable using your butt plug on its own, you can experiment using it with a partner during sex. If you have a vagina, you can wear your butt plug while your partner penetrates you – this can create an amazing sensation of fullness and tightness. If both you and your partner have a penis, the penetrating partner can wear the butt plug during sex to enjoy intense, blended sensations.
While butt plugs can be fun when worn and used with a partner, it’s not obligatory. Whether you have a vagina or a penis, you can wear a butt plug during your regular masturbation sessions to up the anté and enjoy blended or prostate orgasms.
How to clean a butt plug
Because the butt plug goes exclusively in the anus, you're going to want to ensure that it's always thoroughly cleaned before use. If you want the easiest cleaning experience, you'll need to buy a butt plug made from a non-porous material (typically silicone.) Non porous materials are super easy to clean and only require a wash with soap and water. We'd recommend avoiding porous materials when it comes to anal sex toys, as porous materials contain tiny microscopic holes through which bacteria can escape and settle, even after cleaning. Also: it's not a good idea to share butt plugs, even with those you're fluid bonded with. Any toys used exclusively in the anus area shouldn't be shared.
Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.
Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.
Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.
Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.
If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
