What's the point of a butt plug? (Aside from plugging ones butt) : NoStupidQuestions
You're probably at least a little bit curious. Butt plugs are like oysters. One person could try one and experience sheer ecstasy; another might find it a total displeasure. And just as oysters can be enjoyed by folks of any gender or sexuality, butt plugs are also open to anyone with a butt. A butt plug is anal sex toy that's meant to do exactly as the name implies, plug the butt. Just like vibrators, butt plugs come in all shapes, materials, and sizes. But if you're a newbie, you'll want to start with a small, slim model; this is not the right time to be ambitious.

If you have a prostate, butt plugs can stimulate it; if you have a vagina, a butt plug can create incredibly pleasurable pressure on the back vaginal wall. Not to mention that the anus is also surrounded by nerve endings.
Of course, even if you are intrigued, chances are you're not going to run out and buy a toy for booty play without knowing what you're getting yourself into.
