The 6 Best Thrusting Butt Plugs for a Pulsing Posterior
The Testing Process
Here at Bedbible, we use a standardized process to assess new products (actually, we’ve used this same process to review over 300 products so far!). Every product is approached individually, which allows us to highlight the pros and cons of each toy without unnecessary bias. While it’s important to know where a toy excels, we feel it’s equally as important to highlight the shortcoming of a toy (so you’re not in for any unpleasant surprises once your new toy shows up!). All the information you’ll read has been cross-referenced between personal experience, manufacturer websites, and user reviews to ensure the highest level of accuracy. We’ll never recommend a wearable butt plug that we wouldn’t purchase ourselves, so you can trust that any toy listed below is worth your hard-earned cash!
How to Choose a Thrusting Butt Plug
You’ll have many different options to choose from when searching for a new thrusting butt plug. Review the list below, decide your preferences for each specification, and use these answers to help find the perfect plug for you.
- How Hard It Thrusts/Pulsates – Weaker toys are ideal for beginners or for use as warm-up toys. However, if you’re planning on using only the thrusting butt plug then you’ll likely want to get something with a bit more strength. Remember, you don’t always need to use the plug at maximum speed (most thrusting butt plugs offer various speeds & patterns for you to choose from!).
- Size – There are two points to consider here: the size of plug you want inside of your anus & the amount of storage space your new toy will require. When in doubt, start small or buy a non-thrusting set of plain butt plugs with multiple sizes to help determine the correct size for you.
- Remote Controls – While not required, remote controls can be helpful. Rather than having to fiddle around with buttons you can’t see, the remote allows you to switch between functions with ease. We’d recommend a remote-controlled toy for partner play, but when it comes to solo sessions, the choice is up to you!
- Focus – When we say “focus”, we’re referring to the part of your body that the toy targets & provides the most stimulation to. Do you want a prostate toy, or are you looking for general sphincter stimulation? Different toys provide different types of stimulation so review your options before making the decision.
- Price – How much you spend is ultimately up to you, but we recommend ensuring that you’ll actually use all the features a toy provides before spending the extra money for a multi-function toy. While not always available from every store, financing is one way to afford more expensive items without breaking the bank.
Thrusting Butt Plug vs Thrusting Sex Machine
Thrusting butt plugs provide stimulation to your anus, but they’re not as powerful as thrusting sex machines. Like large vibrating butt plugs, these plugs are powered internally using batteries. A magnetic system moves the butt plug in short motions inside of your bum, providing the stimulation you’re after. Although it’s possible to achieve orgasm from the plug alone, it’s rather unlikely. If you’re after an anal orgasm then a thrusting sex machine might be the better option. Unlike thrusting butt plugs (which use internal motors), thrusting sex machines use external motors to provide a more intense experience. These machines are loud, take up a lot of space, and often require a wall outlet to power them, but they can thrust at speeds faster & forces harder than even a real partner could ever hope to achieve.
What is a Thrusting Butt Plug?
A thrusting butt plug is a type of powered butt plug (generally by either external or internal batteries) that mimics the “thrusting” motion to provide added anal stimulation. Many models are controlled by a wired or wireless remote, making them easy to use without blindly pressing buttons. Like all butt plugs, the available sizes vary widely, as do the designs. Smooth plugs are the easiest to insert, but textured plugs will provide more stimulation during insertion/removal. Some thrusting butt plugs are waterproof, but you should always check that specific model before bringing it into the shower with you.

The 6 Best thrusting butt plugs in Test
Eclipse Thrusting Rotator Anal Probe
Perfect as a beginner’s toy or a warmup device, this thrusting anal toy offers 3.75 inches of insertable vibrating, thrusting fun! CalExotics has managed to pack 12 different functions into this tiny toy, providing users with plenty of vibration, thrusting, and rotation options for their next solo or partner session. The simple USB-rechargeable design allows you to quickly recharge your device after use, and its small size makes transportation a non-issue (it even has a travel lock!). Using the toy is also easy since all the functions can be controlled using a single button located on the bottom of the device! Looking for a toy that checks off all the boxes without costing an arm & a leg? Then you’re sure to love the Eclipse Thrusting Rotator Probe from CalExotics!
This anal thrusting butt plug seems to have been designed with lesser-experienced users in mind. That’s not to say that anal enthusiasts wouldn’t be able to enjoy this toy, but its smaller size makes it more of a warmup item than a go-to toy. With a width of only 1.25 inches, the toy is comparable to most “small” plugs, but at least offers 3.75 inches of insertable length & a plethora of vibration/rotation/thrusting functions to keep you entertained. In terms of design, CalExotics have done fairly well, leaving the single-button control easily accessible even when the device is being used. Thankfully, this probe has function memory, which reduces the need to endlessly press the button to get back to your favorite modes. There isn’t really anything wrong with this toy, but its smaller size really does limit its overall potential.
Velvet Hammer - Thrusting Plug Vibrator
The Velvet Hammer is a thrusting buttplug that can be used anally or vaginally, providing you with wave after wave of pleasure no matter where you decide to use it! Powered by two motors (one providing vibrations and the other providing “thrusts”), this fun toy will provide you with hours of fun, free from locational limitations thanks to its fully waterproof design. Experiment with and enjoy the various vibration/thrusting combinations of the Velvet Hammer, either by using the buttons of the toy itself or with the provided remote control. For beginners who want to buy a toy that they won’t quickly grow bored of, the Velvet Hammer provides the long-term reliability, varied options, and exciting stimulation that they’re looking for in one toy!
This thrusting butt plug provides an excellent value given its low price point. Despite only costing around $70, the Velvet Hammer still offers both vibration and thrusting functions, can be controlled via the provided remote, is USB rechargeable (device only), and is made of high-quality silicone for a comfortable internal fit. There aren’t any major areas where this toy falls short, although there are a few changes we’d like to see. First, it would be nice if this plug could be controlled via Wifi, but that might not be realistic considering the price point. Second, the remote still requires a battery to work which is somewhat annoying (to be fair, one is provided for you). Beyond these two minor suggestions, there isn’t any reason why the Velvet Hammer shouldn’t be on your shopping list (unless you simply prefer larger toys instead).
LUX Active Throb Anal Massager
If the idea of a thrusting butt plug is appealing to you, but you’re not sure if automated anal thrusts would be too intense, why not try a toy somewhere in the middle? The LUX Active Throb Silicone Anal Massager is a thrusting anal vibrator that meets the criteria: its motion is akin to thrusting but crossed with a vibrating pulse. This results in a uniquely-feeling anal toy that provides you with sensations you’ve likely never experienced before, keeping you satisfied and excited without being too intimidating for the wary. Measuring 4.5 inches in total length with an insertable width of 1.34 inches, this toy is the perfect stepping stone between regular butt plugs and full-on thrusting powerhouses.
Although LUX says this toy isn’t a thrusting butt plug, it sort of is: it really depends on your definition of thrusting! While the toy produces more of a throbbing motion than a thrust, it does so in every direction, which means it will provide a bit of “thrust” with each pulse. Some people might like it, others might not, and really the only way to determine that is to try it for yourself! In terms of specs, the Active Throb Pulsating Massager offers only 3.4 inches of insertable length, which might be on the short side for many potential users. Measuring 1.34” across, size kings & queens will probably find this toy underwhelming, but the real reason you would buy this toy is for the “pulsating” effect. At $70, this toy isn’t exactly expensive, but it’s not cheap either. We’d suggest this toy for people who want to try something a little different!
Backdoor Banger Thrusting Butt Plug
If the toys so far have been a bit too lackluster for you, then a quick glance at the Backdoor Banger (or heck, even the name!) should show you we’re getting a bit more diverse. The Backdoor Banger is a thrusting butt plug that is divided into three increasingly larger bulbs, with a long tapered neck at the end for an extra comfortable fit. This toy uses magnets, rather than your usual motor-only design, to thrust itself around inside of your bum, which helps the toy operate at full power yet maintain a relatively low volume. You can keep the Backdoor Banger all to yourself or let your partner be in control of the fun using the included remote. With seven different modes to choose from and three bulbs to fit inside, you’ll definitely have a good time with the Backdoor Banger!
The Backdoor Bangers thrusting anal vibe is slightly more expensive than most of the other plugs on this list, but it still provides great performance for the price. Considering the fact that it has three bulbs to make insertion more exciting and a magnet-powered thrusting system (not to mention an extra flexible neck), we think the price is fair. As far as shortcomings go, the Backdoor Banger doesn’t have many. It’s not a great toy for all-day use since it has a round base rather than a t-bar base, but the battery wouldn’t last that long anyway. The remote range is pretty limited at only 16 feet, although this shouldn’t be an issue for most people. This thrusting anal plug gives users seven different modes to enjoy, which isn’t amazing but should provide enough variety to entertain. Overall, any complaints we had were pretty trivial, and we’d recommend the Backdoor Banger for most people who want to upgrade from their current basic butt plug!
A-Play Thrust Adventurous Pulsating Anal Plug
Love deep anal thrusting? Then you’re sure to love the A-Play Thrust Adventurous Anal Plug from Doc Johnson! Measuring 5.25 inches in total length (4.25 inches are insertable) and 1.5 inches across, this toy is ready to fill your backside with all the anal pleasures you deserve. Made from high-quality silicone & ABS plastic, this toy is soft to the touch, sleekly designed, easy to insert, and simple to control using the included wireless remote. The gentle curves of this plug mean—with the right amount of lube—this toy will slip easily inside of you & fit comfortably during use. Perfect for guys, girls, and anyone else who loves anal play, the A-Play Thrust Anal Plug is $85 well spent!
At first glance, this thrusting butt plug seems fairly generic. The curves are definitely beginner-friendly and the materials used are top-notch, justifying the $85 price tag. The toy offers seven different modes of enjoyment and puts the user in full control with the wireless remote. We were only able to come up with one major flaw for this plug, but that just might be enough to put some users off: it’s not waterproof! Unlike many other butt plugs that are completely submersible, this A-Play plug is only splashproof, which means although it might survive the shower, the manufacturer isn’t willing to put any money on it. On the plus side, you do get a nice storage bag along with the plug, which is good if you hadn’t planned the storage aspect ahead of time. All things considered, if you can deal with the toy not being waterproof, it’s a good purchase, but if you want a shower toy then you’ll need to look elsewhere.
Booty Blaster Thrusting Vibrating Butt Plug
If you want a real thrusting anal dildo that will steadily push you towards the finish line then the Booty Blaster is the plug for you. Unlike the other thrusting anal toys, this toy is phallic, black, and uses a wired controller. Thanks to its suction cup base, you won’t even have to hold the Booty Blaster during use. Simply find a smooth surface to attach the toy to, lube appropriately, and let the toy do its magic on your bum! Right under the “head” are a few rows of ribs for added pleasure, meaning you’ll enjoy different sensations depending on how far the toy thrusts inside of you. With seven patterns and three different speeds conveniently located in the palm of your hand, you’ll never have another boring night alone again!
This thrusting butt plug seems great in theory, but in the real world, the results seem very… mixed. Essentially, the size (an insertable length of 5.5 inches) tends to be either perfect or too large for most people. Some people found the toy to be satisfying, while others found the motor to be too weak, which means whether or not the Booty Blaster will work well for you really depends on how loose your anus is and how you’re shaped internally. Fortunately, most people have good luck with the suction cup! Offering both thrusting and vibration modes, we think this toy is the most realistic option on this list. Although it appears to be hit or miss for a lot of people, if you can approach it with the mindset of “this toy costs $50” then we think most people will find it worth their hard-earned cash!
For Those Who Love Fullness
For many anal enthusiasts, that feeling of “fullness” is one of the things that makes anal play so darn appealing! Here’s a toy that just might fill that hole for you…
The Original Rimming Plug
If you love receiving rimjobs but find yourself suffering from a rimjob shortage, this automated rimming plug is the next best thing!
Why Get a Thrusting Butt Plug?
Thrusting butt plugs provide the same benefits as a standard butt plug but also offer thrusting functions that mimic anal intercourse for a more satisfying experience. Some models also offer additional features (such as vibration) that can offer even more stimulation! These features are especially helpful for individuals who have a high libido but no one to share intercourse with.
How to Use a Thrusting Butt Plug
Thrusting butt plugs are fun: let’s briefly go over how to use them!
Lube Yourself (And Your Plug!)
When it comes to butt play, proper lubrication is essential. Make sure your choice of lube is suitable for your plug and then apply the lube liberally to both your anus and the plug itself.
Insert the Plug
Insertion is a slow and gentle process. The toy should slide right in, but if not, there are two potential issues: you’re too tense or you didn’t use enough lubricant. If you’re tensed up, try massaging your anus then inserting a finger to help loosen yourself up enough for the toy to slip inside. If that doesn’t work, then you’ll need to use more lube!
Take Advantage of Its Various Functions
With the toy inserted inside of your bum, you can now enjoy all the thrusting, vibration, and other features your toy has to offer!
How to Clean a Thrusting Butt Plug
Silicone itself can be sterilized using boiling water, but since thrusting butt plugs have electrical parts inside of them, you’ll want to avoid doing this. Unfortunately, all you can do is clean them, but the process is quite easy! Clean them off using antibacterial soap and warm water. After that, pat them dry using a towel and leave them out to air dry before storage. Failing to allow your plugs to completely dry before storage can result in bacteria buildup, which not only means your toy will get dirty again but can also result in some questionable odors!
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.
