The anus, the last frontier of the human body.
Beyond is a world of pleasure and butt plugs are often the key to it.
Their tapered heads make them easy to insert and they stay in place better than most toys you can use anally. They're also great tools to prepare yourself for anal sex.
If you're a woman, it can make vaginal penetration that much more intense if you're wearing one at the same time as you're having vaginal sex. This is because the plugs will take over some vaginal real estate and leave you feeling tighter and more filled.
They come in different shapes and sizes. Some have thicker necks, perfect for that filling sensation or anal training. Others have thinner necks, perfect for comfortable and extended wear, as well as for someone who doesn't care much about the sensation of dilation.
Of course, if you're a man, prostate toys could be a better option if you're looking for pinpoint accuracy.
And if you're looking for truly large toys, you're better off reading our large sex toys list.
That being said, here’s our top 9 list of the best butt plugs, not necessarily from worst to best, because everyone’s needs and budgets are different.

Cheap Butt Plugs
Silicone Trainer Sets
Preparation and training towards anal sex used to be the main reason why people would come to me for butt plugs.
This is where trainer sets come in, they offer a gradual set of Butt plugs that will still feel familiar as you up your sizes. This makes climbing the proverbial anal ladder as comfortable as it gets.
In this entry, I will be reviewing two sets: The American Pop! Launch! by Doc Johnson and Anal Fantasy Butt Plugs by Pipedream.
For a total of 3 body-safe silicone butt plugs, the American Pop! Launch! set is the best bargain you'll ever get.
They're not as tapered as other silicone butt plugs and the tips are a bit finger-like in shape. So if you have no issues with your own fingers, this shouldn't be much of a problem.
That being said, the necks have a nice thickness and should do a pretty decent job at making you accustomed to dilation. You'll also find that it is not that seamless where the head transitions to the neck. This could be a bit intense or surprising for the inexperienced. But this also allows the plugs to stay in place better than a lot of plugs out there.
A nice addition is that they also come in a nice variety of colors.
The only main issue we have with them is the round base that isn't that comfortable for extended wear.
On the other hand, the Anal Fantasy butt plugs have none of those issues.
The rectangle bases sit more comfortably, the transition to the neck is much more seamless and the tip is as tapered as it gets without being sharp.
They're also of higher quality, they come in 6 different gradual sizes and can be bought individually.
Sadly, this also means that you don't get a nice bundle bargain but they're still pretty affordable.
Truskyn Butt plugs by Doc Johnson
The Truskyn silicone butt plugs are some of the most comfortable anal toys ever made.
They're also the only dual-density silicone anal toys that we're aware of. And if there's more out there, chances are they won't be as cheap as these either.
Dual-density means that the outside layer of the toy is squishy followed with a firmer inner core.
This along with the slim base goes a long way to make this a favorite for especially long sessions and you could spend your entire day with these in without much discomfort.
The thicker necks also make these butt plugs great little trainers as well.
Sadly, if you don't count the Ripple model, they only come in two different sizes.
So please Doc, if you hear us, make more of these bad boys!
But if you're one of those people who'd rather not have all that dilation going on or you're just looking to have something comfortable to wear while having simultaneous vaginal sex, you might prefer the next options better.
SquarePegToys®'s Bronze Egg Plugs
If you'd want even more sizes to pick from, which wouldn't surprise us since the Truskyn isn't the most generous in terms of choice, SquarePegToys®'s bronze egg plugs are definitely the way to go. They offer a ton of sizes ( 9 to be exact ) ranging from very small to ridiculously big, so there really is something for every level or preference.
The Bronze Plugs are both excellent trainers and perfect for long term wear.
The Rounded heads mimic the penis way better than most tapered plugs and their thick necks are perfect for anal training. And since their Bronze silicone is so darn squishy, they're still pretty forgiving. Of course, if the lack of taper still worries you, going a size down is always an option!
While they're not made of dual-density silicone like the Truskyn plugs, SquarePegToys®'s silicone is so squishy that it won't really matter. The only caveat we can think of is, if you're not properly warmed up, they might bend during insertion since they don't have a firmer density on the inside to keep them upright.
So if you're in for beautiful squishy trainers with tons of size options, look no further!
Icicles no. 25 & 26
The Icicles line of toys is the most affordable glass toy line out there.
And don't fret, if you know a thing or two about borosilicate glass ( like Pyrex ), you will know that these wont just shatter on you.
It can be warmed up or cooled down safely for temperature play, and once lubed up it is one of the slipperiest materials a toy can have.
Speaking of lube, what we love the most about glass toys is that you can use long-lasting silicone lube without the risk of deteriorating your toy.
And they're just as easy as silicone-based toys to clean. So if you haven't done it already, read more about it in this handy little article.
This Plug also comes in two sizes, The No. 25 being the largest and the No. 26 is the most accessible. No matter which size you choose, the neck of the plugs will always be comfortably thin.
So, obviously this isn't the best anal trainer plug you can get, this is for fun only!
It also means that they will stay in place easier than most plugs with thicker necks.
While round bases aren't the most comfortable out there, these are rather small so they shouldn't bother you much.
The only reason you shouldn't consider it is if you don't like rigid toys or if you're looking for a trainer plug.
Mid-Range Butt Plugs
Tantus T-Bar Butt Plugs
Tantus is one of the top silicone toy makers out there, so of course, we had to include them.
They actually have plenty of models out there, but today we're reviewing the models with T-bar bases specifically.
The big advantage with those plugs is that they're perfect for being active since the base fits perfectly between your ass cheeks.
Even if you're sitting, you won't feel much of a discomfort.
So If you like to go about your day with hidden fun tucked into your pants, this is an awesome option.
They're also great options if you don't enjoy too thick of a neck. So if you just want a plug that will make vaginal sex more intense without putting too much emphasis on anal stimulation or if you just don't like dilation, this is a perfect choice.
Tantus's T-Bar butt plugs come in different sizes and shapes, two different colors (purple and black) and there's also vibrating options as well. The vibrators can be removed for easy cleanup and can be replaced by much more powerful bullets like the Tango.
Tristan by Vixen Creations
This is far from being the first time a toy from Vixen creations lands in one of our articles and it sure as hell won't be the last time.
As most of you readers should know by now, we absolutely love their dual-density Vixskin dildos.
But we have an Anal plug to review, so enough ass-kissing already.
Tristan plugs are essentially the king of all trainer plugs.
The shape is more reminiscent of most penises and dildos out there and the neck is one the thickest we've seen ( if you don't count the ones found on very large toys of course ).
These Butt plugs are a collaboration between Vixen Creations and the sex educator and activist Tristan Taormino. To give you a little background, she wrote the bestselling "The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women" and also directed two movies on that subject as well... So she knows her stuff.
They have a comfortable rectangle base, come in two gender-neutral colors, two different sizes and there's a hollowed out option as well that comes with a vibrator.
Just like with Tantus, we highly suggest upgrading it with We-Vibe's Tango and never look back.
While they're very good trainer plugs they should definitely not be the first plugs you get since the starting sizes are already a little advanced for most beginners. So it would be better to start with some of the toys mentioned above then move on to the Tristan.
After you're done with Tristan 2, you can call it your anal graduation and have a party with balloons and everything!
If you're sick of butt plugs with thin necks, it doesn't get much better than this.
High-End Butt Plugs
Pure Plugs by Njoy
After Vixen Creations here's another Company that just seems to always sneak its way into our articles.
But believe me, it would be stupid not to include them.
These are ultra-hygienic, made of surgical stainless steel and nearly indestructible.
So unless you were blessed with superman's asshole, this toy is in it for life.
And these things are heavy, and you're sure to be aware of them once inserted.
The hoop is also a great feature especially when you enjoy penetration with your butt plugs. But even if you're a set and forget kind of person, it still makes it that much easier to remove when everything is all wet and slippery.
Never again will a butt plug fly out of your hands into Mitten's water bowl.
A lot of men are going to be glad to hear that the curved shape along with the handle makes this plug a pretty good option for prostate stimulation as well.
Of course, the Pfun by Njoy is even better at this but this is a butt plug review article, my friend.
Otherwise, it comes in 4 different sizes and just like glass toys, stainless steel is very easy to clean, slippery as hell and entirely compatible with silicone lube!
Swarovski Butt Plugs
Loved by strippers, cam performers as well as princesses at heart, these will decorate your love button like it's ready for prom.
With genuine Swarovski crystals embedded in their base, these butt plugs will not only be stimulating but they also give a great view to your audience as well. A well-deserved update for your hard-working rear end.
The Haka plugs are the classic time-tested option.
They come in many sizes and they're made of heavy and easy to sanitize stainless steel.
And if you like your glam with a side of artistry, you will love Crystal Delights.
Handmade in very durable borosilicate glass, they'll be lighter than the Haka plugs while remaining as easy to clean.
They make plugs in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. Some with fur tails, intricate designs, and their limited editions are simply gorgeous.
No matter which model you pick you should avoid boiling your plugs for clean up.
While in most situations you should be able to boil glass or stainless steel, in this case, you'd risk dislodging your precious Swarovski crystals from their base.
So If you want every single part of you to look like a million bucks, you know what to do.
We-Vibe's Ditto & Lovense's Hush
Two toys from two different competing companies in the same entry... Have I gone mad? After all, sex brings people together and in all honesty, these great wireless toys complement each other instead of competing for the same spot.
You see, We-Vibes Ditto is the smallest one of the bunch, so the most accessible.
And the Hush come in two sizes acting as a perfect medium and large cousin to the Ditto.
To give you an idea, here's a picture from LSOP's blog of the Ditto compared to the smallest version of the Hush.
We-Vibe's Ditto is 3 inches long and 1.25 inches wide. It can be controlled with either a wireless controller or with an app on your smartphone. On the app, you can customize your vibrations and let a partner control your toy from any distance.
The vibrations are strong and rumbly and carry through the perineum thanks to its smart shape.
Of course, it won't be as intense as some other wireless prostate massagers, but if you're a man, the asymmetry of the plug will be perfect to target the prostate as well.
We-Vibes effort also comes in purple and navy.
Lovense's Hush comes in two sizes, one is 1.5 inches wide and the other is 1.75 and both are just short of 4 inches of insertable length.
This time there's no wireless controller included but the app works very well by itself or if controlled by a second party from anywhere in the world.
Just like the Ditto, the vibrations go from smooth rumbles to intense vibrations.
One thing that is unique about Lovense, is that their toys are made to work well with most sex cam sites. If you're a sex cam performer, the sound of your tips can trigger the vibrations of your toy, giving much more incentive for the spectators to give away their hard-earned cash!
Just keep in mind that both of these wireless toys aren't perfect.
Sometimes the wireless signals have a hard time to get through people or limbs and they're known to straight up not work for bigger men and women.
But sadly, this is an issue with most wireless toys so we can't really blame it on Lovense or We-Vibe.
The lack of an extra controller for the hush makes it a bit awkward to use while having sex though, having to bring your smartphone along.
Robo Rimmer by Fort Troff
The Robo Rimmers have the most features you'll find in a single butt plug.
First of all, they are no means for beginners. But if you have some decent anal experience under your belt, get ready to fall in love.
If you only look at the shape, and not the crazy features it comes with, these silicone toys are very similar to your standard butt plug (or a hybrid of a butt plug and a prostate massager in the case of the Model M).
The neck is also pretty wide compared to the more traditional butt plugs and prostate massagers.
This means it's perfect for training for anal sex or if you simply like the feeling of dilation.
If what was just said doesn't deter you, know that it gets much, MUCH better.
First of all, the head of the plugs rotates, this helps to give that rhythmical pressure the prostate is known to love.
While this feature is amazing by itself, it's nothing too groundbreaking since it can also be found in other toys as well. What really makes this toy unique is that there are rotating beads in the neck of the plug.
This gives you a sensation of getting rimmed by a robot with a tongue that never tires.
Hence it's given name, The Robo Rimmer!
The Rimmer sports 5 different speeds of rotation and 5 incremental vibrations controlled by a handy little wireless controller. It is rechargeable through USB thanks to a neat little magnetic charger and it comes with a hard carry case to protect it on the road.
You can get the Robo Rimmer with a traditional butt plug shape as well as the Prostate specialist, the Model M. So pick your poison!
The thick neck is perfect for anal training as well. Sadly, the only size option available is far from being beginner-friendly. So keep that in mind.
Just keep in mind that these toys are popular and often sold out, but persist and you'll get your hands on one!
