The best butt plugs for starters

If you’re just a beginner and you’re curious about anal play, you need a butt plug! You can’t just go straight for the main thing without doing some training first. Small plugs and training kits will allow you to prepare for anal sex or any other kind of anal play. So, let’s take a look at some of the amazing beginner-friendly butt plugs so you can choose one that suits your needs.

Tantus Ultra-Premium Silicone Anal Butt Plug

This plug is definitely the kind to ease you into the world of anal play. It’s perfect for people who are curious about anal but fear the pain. This plug promises the absence of pain because of its extremely beginner-friendly design. First, we’d like to mention that it’s made of quality silicone, which is the safest sex toy material out there. 


Secondly, this anal sex toy has a very narrow head, and it’s only as wide as an average finger. This means it’s made for easy and pain-free anal penetration. You can use it as a warmup for something bigger or stick to it for a while. 


The Tantus butt plug will change your mind about anal play completely because it will make the process of training so much easier.

Real Vibes Butt Plug & Anal Plug Prostate Massager

Let’s talk about this handy set next. Sets are very useful for beginners because they come in various sizes, are affordable, and will help ease you into all things anal. This set is no different. It comes in 4 different sizes of plugs which also have a suction cup at the end. Manufacturers made sure to use high-quality silicone for these anal toys, which is something you should always look for. 

With these different sizes, you can start your training immediately. Take as much time as you need with sizing up because everyone is different. Maybe you find that the smallest size is the most comfortable for you and that you don’t need to size up at all. That’s okay too! The important thing with this set (and all other sets) is that they offer options and can prepare you for other kinds of butt play if you change your mind.

Naughty Cove Plug Luxury Silicone Anal Trainer

Here’s another option of anal trainers for your choosing (and using) pleasure. This time, you can buy each of the plugs together or separately. Naughty Cove offers three sizes: small, medium, and large. Each of these plugs has a very tapered tip, which is important for easier insertion. As they grow in size, the tip doesn’t change much. It’s the rest of the plug that slightly bulks up.


This kit is perfect for beginners and anal enthusiasts alike. It will allow you to prepare your anus for anal sex or bigger toys. On the other hand, you can use it for guaranteed pleasure during your solo sessions. If you’re unsure if this is what you really want, the advantage here is that you don’t immediately have to buy the entire kit.

Utimi Vibrating Anal Plugs

If you’re a fan of vibrating toys, this set is the one for you. Much like any other, it comes in different sizes. However, these have one function that others don’t — they vibrate! The good thing is that they don’t require batteries. With this set, you also get a bullet vibrator that you can charge via USB. This means that your plugs will vibrate only if you want them to. 


On the other hand, you can use any other bullet vibrator that might have different vibration modes. This set is also good for both men and women who don’t enjoy powerful vibrations. They’re beginner-friendly because of their sizes and tapered tips, so you won’t have to worry if they’ll fit or not.

Tracy’s Dog Vibrating Prostate Massager Anal Butt Plug

Let’s throw some anal beads into the mix. This single plug consists of three different-sized beads. This is great for beginners because you have absolute control over how much you want to insert. You can stop at just one bead until you work up the courage to go further. If that isn’t enough, this plug also vibrates all throughout. So, you won’t have to reach a certain part of the plug to feel the vibrating sensations. 


Many people say that beads are easier to use than actual plugs. This only adds another advantage to this toy because you can use it even if you know absolutely nothing about anal play. Men and women alike are welcome to use it because it will reach and stimulate all the right spots.

FST Silicone Realistic Suction Cup Male Prostate Butt Plug

If you’re into something that looks more realistic, this plug is the one for you. It’s in the shape of a penis and slightly curved. We wouldn’t say it’s for the absolute beginners because the tip is not as tapered as it is in other butt plugs. Still, it can be great for someone who’s experienced one or two sizes of plugs and is ready for more. 


The silicone will ensure your experience is safe and feels amazing, and the curves will hit all of the spots. That’s especially true for your prostate, but even if you don’t have it, this butt plug will do wonders for you. We all know that all it takes is hitting a single spot to bring us to orgasm.

Pipedream Icicles Number 14

Now’s the time to step away from silicone and talk about the smoothness of glass plugs. This glass plug is good for beginners and experts alike, offering incredible sensations to all who try it. The advantages of glass include easy maintenance, the potential for temperature play, and they allow you to use whichever lubricant you want. 


This plug might be on the smaller size, but people report not being able to put the whole thing inside because of how intense the sensations are. If this is something you’re looking for, this is just the toy for you. All you need to do is take your time so you don’t orgasm too fast. 


People go for this butt plug because they enjoy the fact that it’s not as soft as silicone. After all, not all of us need the same things. Sometimes, you just want something rock-hard.


There are many beginner-friendly plugs and kits for you to choose from. They come in different materials, can have different shapes, and even be in the form of beads. Whatever sensations you’re looking for as a beginner, you’ll find a plug that corresponds to it. Happy hunting!
