I know that glass and your booty aren’t two things that generally go together but there is a way to make this combination magic… with a glass butt plug!
Butt plugs come in all shapes, sizes, and materials and each one will feel different from another but glass plugs have seen a real rise in popularity in the last few years for good reason.
While men in particular still seem to be pretty wary of any form of butt play, there are so many reasons why you should give it a try. The entrance to your anus is full of nerve endings and the male prostate gland feels insane when stimulated and can give you the best orgasm of your life!
Just remember that anal play doesn’t determine your sexual preference.
Wanting to stimulate a whole lot of nerve endings and your prostate for an awesome orgasm just means you want to explore your body and experience pleasure! Yay for you!

What Makes a Great Glass Butt Plug?
As with all sex toys, there are particular features that make it stand out amongst the rest, and glass butt plugs, in particular, have some very specific features that make them so popular.
The first being, that if you take care of your glass butt plug, then you have a sex toy that could literally last forever. Unlike most other sex toy materials which break down over time, glass lasts and lasts and can be used with any type of lubricant without worrying about degradation to the material.
Because glass is such a hard, sturdy material it is also non-porous which means that it will not hold any bacteria in the material of the toy. For that reason, cleaning the toy is also super easy. You just need warm water and some antibacterial sex toy cleaner and you are good to go.
Ease of Use
The hard, smooth surface of glass also makes glass toys one of the easiest to insert. Anal play can be a bit tricky as the sphincter muscles are so tight, but a glass butt plug tends to slide in a lot easier than other materials because it is so slippery once lube has been added.
Just keep in mind that you will need to be careful when it is lubricated as it may actually slip out of your hand. Try to keep the lubricant on the body more than the toy as much as possible. A lubricant launcher might be helpful for you if you are new to glass toys.
Another feature that makes glass butt plugs so popular is that they are perfect for temperature play. Glass retains heat or cold so you can pop the toy in some warm water for a while before play to heat it up or chill it in a fridge or freezer to cool it down. Just be careful to test the toy on your own skin first before inserting it. You want it to stimulate, not hurt or cause any damage.
Are Glass Butt Plugs Safe?
The simple answer is yes, so long as you know what to look out for.
As with all sex toys, there are precautions that you can take to ensure that everything goes smooth. A few tips for anal play are to ensure that you use a lot of lube! The anus is not self-lubricating so you need to keep it well lubricated to make sure there is no pain.
Also, ensure that you always use a toy with a flared base. No base = no trace. Your sphincter muscles will naturally suck anything pushed past up into the rectum you make sure there is something to stop this from happening.
With glass butt plugs, make sure you only use a toy that is designed specifically for the butt and only goes with brands you know and trust. Look out for toys made of borosilicate glass.
This is an extremely hard and sturdy glass and is the best option for sex toy safety. I personally avoid anything else when it comes to glass toys. While it may seem scary, the thicker the better when it comes to glass toys, so I don’t recommend using a glass toy if you are a total beginner.
Make sure the section between the base and the bulb is not too thin and avoid ring handles if you can. These are prone to snapping off during use.
Review of the Best Glass Butt Plugs
Now for the fun part… let’s look at some of the actual glass butt plugs available!
1. Pure Pleasure Glass Butt Plug
This glass plug is a pretty good starting point for those that are new to glass butt plugs. Although described as a beginner plug, it's important to keep in mind that beginner glass butt plug and beginner butt plugs of other materials are two different things.
Other material plugs can be made much smaller while still being safe for the body, whereas glass plugs can’t so a glass toy described as beginner will likely be intermediate level in the anal play world.
This plug measures 4-inches insertable length and 4.5-inches’ diameter so there is definitely some size to it but it is still on the slimmer side.
All in all, this is a pretty good plug to start out with, but please be careful as it does have the potential to get lost…
2. Amethyst Sensual Glass Butt Plug
So, oh my god! How pretty is this plug?! The amethyst swirl through the glass is so cool. So first features, it looks great! But this glass plug is also a nice step up for those that like the stretch that abut plug can offer them.
This one is a bit thicker than the last and has a bulbous head that measures 4.75-inches in circumference. The length is actually quite short at only 2.75-inches insertable so is another good option for glass toy beginners.
This amethyst plug is seriously beautiful but the neck to base ratio is still a little on the small side for my liking.
3. Icicles No. 48 Glass Plug with Flower Base
Speaking of beautiful glass toys… look at this one! This little cutie is one of the prettiest glass plugs on the market, just check out that flower shaped base.
This petite plug measures 3-inches insertable length and 4-inches’ girth making it a great size for beginners to glass butt toys.
The base to neck ratio on this one is much better too and that cute little flower poking out of your booty is going to be too damn cute to resist. Trust me!
This plug is a perfect size and shape for newbies to glass toy booty play. Plus, it is so damn cute!
4. Icicles No. 46 Curved P-spot Glass Butt Plug
Now this one is specifically for the males. It has a curved bulbous tip to directly target the p-spot and massage this super sensitive gland. While this toy looks long in the photos, it’s actually about the same length as most of the others I have talked about, it is just a bit thinner.
The insertable length is 4-inches and the girth at its widest point is 3.5-inches. The majority of the toy is much thinner than that though. But, this toy has one of those ring handles that I warned you about. I have heard some scary stories about those breaking off during use.
While I love the shape of this toy, I would steer clear of that style handle. Look out for something with a thicker handle or a flared base.
5. Fifty Shades Darker Something Darker Glass Butt Plug
Love Fifty Shades of Grey? Well, this glass plug is from the official Fifty Shades Darker toy collection. And, although I am not a fan of the series, I have to admit that I love this plug.
The color is so beautiful and it’s finally a color that isn’t too girly or feminine. This is another borosilicate glass toy that is very similar to the first one we looked at. It is 4-inches insertable length and has a girth of 4.5-inches so it is not too scary for beginners to glass ass play.
As much as I love this product, I find it pretty hard to look beyond the fact that it is a Fifty Shades of Grey product, and I wish the base was bigger!
Glass butt plugs are really a toy that is suited to intermediate level booty players that know what they are looking for. If you are careful then most of these options will be fine, but I would recommend looking for something with a bigger base if you can just for peace of mind.
