There still seems to be a misconception still that anal play doesn’t feel good for a woman and that females only “go along” with it to keep male partners happy, but this is totally not the case! The anus is full of nerve endings and anal play can be a very orgasmic experience for women too. It’s basically a pleasure vortex inside and out!
And, while some still make light of anal play and it remains the butt of many jokes, butt plugs, and other anal toys are actually hugely popular among men and women!

What Do Butt Plugs Do for Women?
Rather than the in and out motion if dildos and internal vibrators, a butt plug for women is a plug and play kind of toy. Once it's in, you don’t need to do anything else with it. It is all about the sensation of the toy inside the booty and the orgasmic opportunities that it offers.
Butt plugs are all about pressure. While women may not have a prostate to massage, they are specifically designed to create a feeling of fullness inside the body, and this feels incredible for women too.
Whether you are masturbating, receiving oral or even being penetrated vaginally, having a butt plug in will make the whole experience much more intense; plus, it can also intensify your orgasm as the sphincter muscles contract around the neck of the plug and hit all those nerve endings that are so often missed.
The use of a butt plug can also indirectly target the female G-spot! Yup, that wall between the colon and the vaginal shaft s actually very thin and a butt plug can work to apply pressure to the g-spot too. It will be even more intense if you use a toy or a penis vaginally too.
Of course, a butt plug is also a great way to prepare and relax the body before anal sex too. It works by opening and relaxing the sphincter muscles so that a penis can then be inserted instead.
What Makes a Great Female Butt Plug?
When it comes to female butt plugs, there are a few things to look out for that will make the experience as great as possible.
The first being the size and shape of the toy, as while there is the classic butt plug shape – a teardrop bulb, narrow neck and flared base – there are also others with curved tips or thin bulb less toys to consider too.
It all comes down to how you intend to use the butt plug. If you want to stimulate the G-spot, then you will want something with a curved tip.
Keep in mind that a butt plug that is designed for P-spot stimulation will target the G-spot when used by a female.
If you are totally new to play, then you will want something small and narrow to start with so it’s easy to insert. And if you want something filling, then the rounder the bulb the better.
The next thing to look out for is the butt plug material. For those new to anal play, I generally recommend a silicone plug as it will be soft, flexible and easy to clean after play.
However, if you are someone that wants to use a plug that is heavier, a glass or steel option will be better. Always ensure that whatever material you are using is non-porous and won’t harbor any bacteria. This is especially important during anal play.
The type of material you choose will also determine which type of lubricant you are able to use. As the booty does not self-lubricate, a lubricant is absolutely essential with butt plugs and the thicker the better as it will last longer.
Silicone lube is a great option for anal but it can not be used with silicone plugs. If you are using a silicone butt plug, then you need to use a water based lube.
Review of the Best Butt Plugs for Women
Now let’s look at some of the different kinds of butt plugs for women that are available and why each one might be just what you are looking for. These are a few of the best butt plugs for women.
1. Cupid’s Itty Bitty Beginners Plug
This is a great butt plug for beginners as it is nice and small, made from body safe silicone and it's also super safe. Not only does it have a flared base so it won’t run away on your during play, it even has an extra finger loop retrieval cord just in case.
The Cupid’s Itty Bitty Plug has a cute bulbous head that isn’t too intimidating at only 3.5-inches girth at its widest point and it only has an insertable length of 2-inches.
This is a perfect toy for beginners to butt plugs as it is small, cute and unintimidating. It’s just not ideal for long-term wear.
2. Njoy Pure Medium Stainless Steel Butt Plug
If you are looking for a luxury plug, then look no further than Njoy. While I definitely don’t recommend this one for beginners, those of you who have played around with butt plugs before might just fall in love with this one.
It's made of stainless steel so is completely nonporous and easy to clean, it can be used with any type of lube and it weighs 200g. If you are after pressure, then something heavy like this is perfect! It measures 3.9-inches girth and 2.5-inches insertable length so it is still on the smaller side, but it is very weighty and has no flexibility.
This is an amazing butt plug that is the perfect step up for a woman that has some experience and wants to treat herself!
3. Doc Johnson Super Slim Butt Plug Small
Now, this is a plug for absolute beginners! It’s the size of a pinky finger and is for absolute beginners to anal plug. While most butt plugs are used for the feeling of pressure they create, this one is really about exploring anal stimulation as it is too thin to really give you a sense of what a butt plug feels like.
It could be used as a tool for stimulating the entrance and moving the toy in and out of the body though. Its made from body safe rubber, so, unfortunately, it does have that lingering rubber smell and measures 2.5-inches girth and 3.75-inches insertable.
While I do recommend this toy as your very first entry into anal play, I don’ think it is a great beginner plug as it just doesn’t really do what it should.
4. Doc Johnson Medium Black Butt Plug
Now this is one is quite the step up and I don’t recommend this if you are a beginner to anal play. However, if you have some booty experience and want to take things up a notch then this plug will be perfect.
Made from body safe rubber, this plug is big but still not too bulbous so is a great precursor to bigger toys or anal sex without feeling too overwhelming.
It measures 5-inch girth at its widest point and 4.6-inches insertable length. It’s also harness compatible, which means it can be used in an O-ring harness for pegging play.
This is definitely not a beginner’s toy, but for those that are used to rubber sex toys and want to take things up a notch, this could be perfect.
5. Lovehoney Full Bloom Rose Sensual Glass Butt Plug
If you are someone that needs your sex toys to be beautiful as well as pleasurable then this is the one for you. This plug is made from beautiful pink glass and is sleek and gorgeous. The base is actually a rose, so just imagine how cute that will look peeking out of your butt!
And don’t worry, it’s made from super strong borosilicate glass so it won’t break inside you. I wouldn’t recommend this one to absolute beginners as it isn’t as small as some other beginner plugs.
It measures 4.74-inches in girth at its widest point and 4-inches insertable length so I recommend starting out with something smaller and working up to this one.
This is such a pretty plug and glass butt plugs are a lot of fun so long as you have a bit of experience and know what you are doing.
Finding the perfect butt plug for women really comes down to personal preference and how you want to use it. It might take a bit of trial and error to get exactly what you want, but I promise you will have fun figuring it out!
