“Plug” means “socket” in English, probably because of its cone shape allowing a very progressive penetration and it’s narrowing on which the muscles of the anus close. The plug is then formed of a wider base to prevent the penetration is too deep. It is very used in homosexual games, but not only! It can also spice up the sexual relations of a man and a woman. There are different sizes and widths of plugs, different materials (latex, silicone, glass, wood) and also plugs with a small vibration mechanism to facilitate relaxation of muscles and increase sensations.
The use of an anal plug can present some risks like rips of the rectal tissues. It is recommended that you take certain precautions before inserting it.

For solo masturbation, the anal plug can stimulate your feelings, because the anal area is intimately connected to the vaginal area. If you use the anal plug with your partner, either inserting it into his anus or into yours, you can achieve anal orgasm. Few men know and dare to practice it, but anal penetration with prostate stimulation provides orgasms, it seems, even more powerful than phallic orgasms.
The insertion of an anal plug can tighten the muscles of the vagina and if your partner enters you at the same time, it will give you more pleasure to both of you. Indeed, double penetration awakens the entire sexual area and amplifies the sensations. As for the man, he can feel the plug on the other side of the flesh membrane that separates the vagina from the anal canal and it can also increase his pleasure. To practice double penetration, you have to find the ideal position. You can lie on your back, and as a missionary, the man inserts both his penis into your vagina and the plug in your anus. It is possible to proceed in the same way in other positions such as greyhound, teaspoons and Andromache.
How to use an anal plug?
It is necessary to have first prepared your anus by inserting a finger, you can apply lubricant on the plug and insert very gently. The muscles of the anal area should then relax and wrap around the plug. Then gently rotate it and you can push it a little further.
Once introduced, the anal plug is not normally provided for back and forth. As its name suggests, it only plugs in, and prepares your anus to receive your partner’s penis. There are other sex toys that can prepare your anus to sodomy. If you insert it into your partner’s anus, the manipulation will be the same. As seen above, men often ignore it, because this practice brings them back to homosexuality, but anal penetration can become for them a real source of pleasure.
The “Tree”, inflatable tree of the American artist Paul McCarthy installed Place Vendome, caused a scandal last week. The work, too much like an anal plug, was ransacked, and the artist assaulted. But what is an anal plug, wondering some? Experts tell you more about this sex object.
The functions of the anal plug
The plug is more of an anal preparation accessory than an object of pleasure. Once inserted, it gradually relaxes the muscles around the anus. It also aims to overcome the fear of anal penetration in some people, says sexologist in America. When fear is tamed, penetration becomes commonplace and sexual partners can listen to their pleasure. The anal plug then serves in particular to reach a sensitive area around the prostate. Through the anus, the plug touches this peri-prostatic region by filling it completely.
It can also be used:
- As a dildo when inserted into the anus or vagina for stimulation and excitement
- By a single person who keeps it on while engaging in other activities, even in the presence of others, to experience pleasure without it being seen.
- If it can be used in the anus as in the vagina, the dimensions of the plug are more adapted to the anus.

Anal plug, instructions for use
The anus should be prepared, for example by a massage accompanied by lubricant. The plug is also coated with lubricant and inserted gently. After a few seconds, the muscle relaxes and adapts to the toy. Without pushing it further, one can turn it on itself by progressively widening the circles.
Gradually, the pressure of the muscle will decrease and the plug can be pushed a little further. If for some, this simple penetration is sufficient, for others, a movement back and forth will be required because it stimulates the anal wall, very sensitive. Anal penetration is safe if properly prepared. Also, the plug helps the anus to expand gradually thanks to its conical shape.
The risks of using an anal plug
The use of the plug presents risks, including that of tearing rectal tissues in the case of anal stimulation. The use of a lubricant is strongly recommended. In contact with body fluids (including blood, feces, vaginal secretions), the object can be a vector of sexually transmitted infections. It is also advisable not to put the plug in the anus and then in the vagina afterwards. The object should be washed after each use with an antibacterial soap.
