best inflatable butt plug in test
You have a lot of options when it comes to butt plugs: small plugs, large plugs, vibrating plugs, and inflatable butt plugs! These plugs have an obvious advantage over their non-inflating counterparts since they can be adjusted perfectly to fit the size of your anus. In the mood for a larger plug? Just pump it up! Want a smaller plug? Pump less! Beyond being able to offer the perfect size every time, some models are even available as inflatable vibrators, adding yet another level of fun to your anal adventures. Whether you’re a newbie to the world of butt play or an experienced butt lover just hoping to find an exciting new toy, we’re pretty sure you’ll find something you like on the list below!

Our Rating System

Here at Bedbible, we pride ourselves in our ability to provide information that’s genuinely helpful to you as the shopper, not just a list of product specifications. When we were creating this article, we tried to think of what we would want to know about a toy: How much does it inflate? Is it durable? Is it hard to use? Any shortcomings? We made sure to include all of these details in the written sections for each product, but you can get an idea at a glance simply by looking at the “Bedbible Rating” score (we also summarized the collective user experience in the “User Ratings” score). The “Bedbible Rating” is calculated from that particular product’s design, ease of use, and quality, making it easy to quickly compare two potential options.

What to Look for in an Inflatable Butt Plug

 

If you’ve never owned an inflatable butt plug then you might not know what to look for. Obviously, you’ll want something that’s long-lasting and easy to use, but what should you look for specifically? Here are five things to think about when considering your options!

 

  • Body-Safe Materials – Non-porous materials (such as silicone) are always the preferred option since they can be completely sterilized, which is optimal for internal use toys. Porous materials tend to retain smells and also can’t be sterilized, making them a poor option for butt plugs. You should also watch out for any allergens.
  • Flared Base – Unless you want to be constantly worrying about your toy getting stuck up inside of your butt, we recommend going for a toy with a flared base! This design will prevent the toy from being over inserted, sparing you from an embarrassing trip to the emergency room.
  • Tapered Tip – Just like with non-inflating butt plugs, a toy with a tapered tip is generally preferable over one without. Having a tapered tip means the toy will be easier to insert, even when already inflated.
  • Quick-Release Valve – As you probably already know, sizing is important! However, it is possible to accidentally over-inflate your butt plugs, which could be uncomfortable or even painful! Because of this possibility, you’ll want an easy out. Toys with a quick-release value are ideal since they can instantly deflate the plug, which is useful for accidental over-inflation as well as sizing and removal.
  • Waterproof – The easiest way to clean an inflatable butt plug is using soap and water. If your toy contains electronics, you’ll want to opt for a waterproof model to simplify the cleaning process.

FAQ

Are inflatable butt plugs safe?
We wouldn't be recommending them if they weren't! While the concept may seem alarming, inflatable butt plugs not only help you find the perfect girth, but also introduce new, pleasurable sensations to your anal play. As long as your toy has a flared base, and you take it at your own pace, you'll be fine!
Do I need to prep for using an inflatable butt plug?
Because of the vibration and expansion, it may be worth taking a few extra precautions (daily fiber pills, enemas, etc.) to make sure everything is clean down there, especially if you're with a partner.
Can I orgasm from an inflatable butt plug?
Absolutely! Of course, everyone's bodies are different, but if you're aware that prostate stimulation gets you off, then the inflation/deflation of an inflatable butt plug has high chances.
What size inflatable butt plug should I start with?
The standard size is around 1.5 inches in girth before inflation, but everybody is different. If you worry about the size being too much, there are smaller options - just make sure your toy has an adequately flared base.
How long can I wear an inflatable butt plug?
You'll have to listen to your body on this one, but generally, we recommend not wearing any sort of plug for more than three to four hours, depending on the size.
How big does an inflatable butt plug get?
It varies from product to product so you’ll need to look at the info for a specific product to get its maximum diameter/width & length.

What is an inflatable butt plug?

An inflatable butt plug is a butt plug with inflation technology used to help you get that feeling of fullness without the pain of initially inserting a large toy. Like regular butt plugs, they can be made using a variety of different materials, so it’s always a good idea to check the allergy information and opt for a non-porous material when possible. Inflatable butt plugs can be used for anal training, a process that allows you to take on bigger and better things in the future. Typically, inflatable butt plugs are powered manually, by a hand pump, or digitally, through a remote control and inflation mechanisms in the toy. Some models also incorporate vibration into the mix, giving you even more options for anal stimulation!

The Inflate and Vibrate Butt Plug by Nasstoys is a unique toy in that it has both a remote control (for vibrations) and a manual pump (for inflation). However, a big concern is that the base isn’t flared enough, especially once the toy is inflated, so you should only be buying this if you’re sure you can keep an eye on it down there. If you want something that packs a vibrational punch without the inflation, check out our roundup of remote control butt plugs here!

Inflatable Butt Plugs to Avoid

You’ve seen the do’s, now let’s look at the don’t!

How to Prep for Anal Play

You’ve got the toys, but now what? Here are some tips that’ll help you out, whether you’re going solo or playing with a partner.

Masturbation

Masturbation

Masturbation

This one is less about prepping your body for anal, but for your mind. If you’re a total beginner to anal sex, the prospect can be quite daunting, and there’s no shame in that! Experiment with anal fingering before you play with a partner will help you figure out the sorts of sensations you like and dislike, and remove some of the unknown elements that may be making you nervous.

Clean

Clean

Clean

If you’re clean, you’re comfortable, and therefore a million times sexier. There are many ways to do this, but experts suggest a bowel movement 30-60 minutes before the act, and simply showering are enough! If you want to take extra precautions, there are other things you can do, like performing an enema with an anal douche to make sure you’re squeaky clean.

Increase your fibre intake

Increase your fibre intake

Increase your fibre intake

This is a little tip from the pros to help with the aforementioned bowel movement. You’re encouraged to eat foods that are high in fiber, so your bowel movements will be easy and regular, and this will help all the waste to leave your body.

How to Use an Inflatable Butt Plug

Now you’re ready to play, here are some tips and advice for just how to go about it! You may also be interested in reading about others’ experiences with inflatable butt plugs, especially if you’re a first timer.

How to Use an Inflatable Butt Plug

Lube

Lube

We stress it in every article, but with inflatable butt plugs, lube is really, really important. It’s difficult to get an inflatable butt plug inside you without the help of lube, and even if you manage, it’ll be a deeply uncomfortable experience. We recommend water-based lube for use with silicone toys, as silicone-based lube will break down the material and allow harmful bacteria to develop.

Pre-play

How to Use an Inflatable Butt Plug

Before you dive in headfirst, get to know your toy by inflating and deflating it before insertion. This will help you to understand the degrees of inflation, and help you get to know the quick-release valve, so you’re properly prepared for play.

Solo

How to Use an Inflatable Butt Plug

Playing with yourself is super pleasurable with an inflatable butt plug! This is a great way to get to know your body and the toy you’re using. Lube up, squat down, and experiment to your heart’s content. You could even use it in tangent with other toys! Use vibrators, nipple clamps, cock rings, or whatever combination you can dream up.

With a partner

With a partner

Spicing up your regular sex routine has never been more fun with the wide range of toys out there to experiment with. You can introduce an inflatable butt plug into your play if you’re interested in exploring anal stimulation, and handing over the remote or pump to a partner is a great way to build trust or surrender control.

How to clean

Proper cleaning of your inflatable butt plug is essential to avoiding bacterial infections or transmission of STIs. No matter how often you use it, cleaning after every use is highly advised. All the products listed here are silicone, which is great news for you: it's a non-porous material that's a lot easier to clean than many others! While silicone is usually safe to boil, the mechanisms in your inflatable butt plug make boiling an absolute no-no unless you want to lose the vibrations and inflation you paid for. Wash with mild antibacterial soap (tip: if you wouldn't use it on your body, don't use it on your toy!) and warm water for 20 seconds or more. Many sites also offer their own sex toy cleaner if you want to be extra safe! Be sure to dry well and store your toys in a clean and dry environment to decrease risk of infections. If you're worried about smell lingering, use a condom on your toy before insertion! Do NOT use fragranced soap, as this can increase the likelihood of infection.

Porous
materials

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.

Non-propous
materials
