A Guide to Butt Plugs

How to choose the right butt plugone-time

Here is a quick Romantix guide to your new butt plug. When browsing for your toy, take into account these four main characteristics to ensure you get the right plug for you and your body.


Length vs. Insertable Length

Butt plugs are made of a couple of different sections. There is usually a crook somewhere on the piece that separates the part of the toy that enters the anus and the part that remains outside. This ensures safe removal of the object. Romantix offers many fashionable butt plugs, such as the Luxe Bling Training Set, which features three various butt plug sizes for those just beginning to experiment with ass play.

When looking for your new toy, be sure to check the dimensions on the listing to make sure you are getting the length you really desire. Some toys are measured from the base which includes the section that remains outside of the anus. If you are unsure of the dimensions, Romantix offers an insertable length search filter to ensure you are getting the right sized toy.

Length vs. Diameter  

Likewise, the diameter of your butt plug will affect the experience. Diameter describes the girth of the insertable section. Those that are less experienced with anal toys may want to start off with a smaller diameter, such as the Crystal Jellies Anal Initiation Kit. Those that are looking to experiment may want to slowly increase their diameter as they buy new toys. The Red Boy Extra Large Butt Plug is great for those that are looking for a beautiful and functional piece to add to their collection.


Like any toy, features are a vital aspect to personalizing your experience. Here are a few basic features that are common in anal plugs:


Lube is usually a must for those that are beginning to experiment with anal play. The material of your butt plug may react differently to different lubricants and it is important to note what type of lubricants work best with your toy.

  • Latex plugs cannot be used with oil-based lubricants.
  • Silicone-based lubes cannot be used with silicone butt plugs.
  • Water-based lubricants are generally safe for most toys, but dry out quickly.


As always, practice safe and healthy masturbation and sex and be sure to use protection, thoroughly clean your toys after each use, and take care of and listen to your body!
