Anal sex and stimulation were, for the longest time, seen as one of the last bastions of sexual pleasure. But, these days, with a more sexually liberal and accepting society, more and more people are eagerly turning to the hidden pleasures and surprises of anal play.
With huge numbers of butt plugs flooding the market, finding the best one for you can be a bit daunting and overwhelming. So we have compiled a list of some of the top inflatable butt plugs out there, that you can use to enhance your sexual pleasure.
What Makes a Great Inflatable Butt Plug?
Inflatable butt plugs differ to regular plugs in one key point: The ability to inflate their size in order to enhance the sensation they grant you.
As with everything in life, a great inflatable butt plug should be easy to use and easy to clean, but require some trial and error to get the feeling right for you.
This means that there are a few things to consider about what actually makes a worthwhile butt plug, inflatable or otherwise.
Firstly and foremost, the butt plug should fit. If in doubt about the size of the butt plug in regards to yourself or whomever you are buying it for, always choose smaller.
It’s better to start small and work up through progressive sizes than to buy a one too large to begin with, that causes potentially very great damage.
Secondly the plug must be made of a material that is right for YOU! There are many types of material that butt plugs are available in; Rubber, silicone, glass, plastic are all materials to consider.
If you plan to share your plug with someone (your partner for example), get one that is non-porous. This makes clean-up much simpler and more sanitary.
Designed for Safety
A very important feature on any and all butt plugs is some kind of wide brimmed stopper that prevents it from being “lost” during use.
This also prevents you having to either wait to reclaim it or from taking a trip up to the emergency room to have it recovered.
Try to make sure that the stopper is at least wider than the actual body of the plug and always read the reviews to see if other users are having success with keeping it from being lost.

What is an Inflatable Butt Plug Best Used For?
The inflatable butt plug has much the same usage of the regular butt plug but with the added benefit of being inflatable to a point that may be too large to insert initially.
As with all butt plugs, the inflatable plug is used mainly for starting your exploration into anal pleasure. The many sizes of plug allow you to truly grasp what it is to feel the sensation of anal pleasure, all the while providing you with full control of the duration and intensity of your playful sessions.
They also allow you to work your way up from inserting smaller objects, to taking the plunge and experiencing full anal sex with a partner, or larger toy of your choice. You must think of the anus in the way you think of any muscle in the body.
You wouldn’t walk into a gym and load up the nearest bar with all of the plates you could find and lift it would you? No! You would start small, condition yourself slowly and work up to the larger weights. Or in this case sizes.
The feeling of complete and utter fullness is enough to drive many people wild during their sexual sessions and an inflatable butt plug helps you feel just that.
By inserting as a smaller object, this saves the rectum from unnecessary damage and tearing, before inflating to fill the anal cavity.
This helps to reach all of the pleasurable nerve endings hidden inside the anal cavity with maximum comfort, in order to afford the most pleasure possible.
The inflatable area of the plug also gives the recipient a more comfortable experience by providing a soft and accommodating surface that allows fairly free movement, without blocking off the cavity as a solid object.
As a final note, a good number of inflatable butt plugs also house small but effective vibrators inside of them.
These vibrators, coupled with the soft inflatable plug, allow for even more pleasure, while having the added benefit of a muffled noise, due to the soft housing in the plug.
These vibrators also help enhance the sensations felt by the anal cavities nerve endings and even help men achieve a more pleasurable orgasm by massaging the prostate..
With the right approach anal play can be enjoyed as much and anything else. All you need are the right tools and a bit of patience to do so.
Inflatable butt plugs can help bridge the gap from anal beginner to expert and provide hours of pleasure for any user.
Hopefully this helpful guide will allow you to make an informed decision on what is best for you and how you can approach anal play with the enthusiasm it deserves.
