Butt Plugs are a great place to start exploring backdoor pleasure. Like anal play, a butt plug can be enjoyed regardless of your gender or sexual orientation.
What is a Butt Plug?
If you have a prostate, butt plugs can stimulate it, and if you have a vagina, a butt plug can create incredibly pleasurable pressure on the back vaginal wall.
...and let's not forget that the entry to the anus is filled with sensation enhancing nerve endings.
How to Use a Butt Plug
One of the great things about butt plugs is that they can be used for hands-free pleasure. Butt plugs can be worn while walking, dancing, or during foreplay. Once comfortably positioned, they apply pressure and provide a "feeling of fullness", while your hands and attention can move to a different activity.
