Tapered heads and thin necks make them slip into and stay in place better than other anal sex toys, and they’re a great tool to help you prepare yourself for anal play with or without a partner.
For those with a vagina, butt plugs can help to increase the intensity and pleasure of vaginal penetration if you wear one during vaginal sex.
This is because the plug pushes against the vaginal walls, tightening the canal and making the vaginal canal feel more full when having sex. For those with prostates, butt plugs are great for pinpoint accuracy.
The Lovense Hush Butt Plug is by far my favorite, but I did a little research and found a few honorable mentions to bring a bit more variety to this guide!

Now, let’s go over all of the plugs above in detail:
1. The Lovense Hush – The Best Butt Plug Overall
The Lovense Hush is a high-tech, multi-purpose butt plug that comes with a one year warranty, so be sure to fill out the required paperwork!
It is also wireless, rechargeable, and can run for an hour and a half on a two-hour charge.
The body is made of smooth body-safe silicone and slips easily into or out of the body. The plug has a good bit of heft to it without being too weighty. The power button is on the bottom of the plug and it is easy to operate. Thankfully, despite the button being on the bottom of the device, sitting on the base of the plug doesn’t turn it on or off.
The Hush by Lovense can be used with the Lovense Remote app found in the Google Play store (or Apple Store if you have an iPhone). If you prefer a simple device, Hush can be operated by the button on the base of the device, but I got it for the sole purpose of exploring the teledildonics functions involved!
Once I had the app, connecting the phone to the toy was simple and can be done over WiFi or BlueTooth. It can be used solo, with a partner, long-distance, or even with a live adult performer. The very few issues I have had with connectivity was quickly remedied by consulting the quick shoot guide that came with it.
Personally, I prefer the versatility of using the app over the option to use the plug without the app. I’m able to control the intensity of the vibrations, pattern styles, and I can even create my own custom patterns!
The app is a lot of fun to play with and thanks to the design, I can see what the plug is doing and how it will feel. This feature makes the plug’s vibrations incredibly easy to adjust.
I found that the lowest vibrations were very soft and easily warmed me up and while subtle, these intensities were also surprisingly powerful. At full power, the Lovense Hush is almost too powerful and I had to work up to this level. The presets on the Hush by Lovense weren’t anything special to me and I found myself skipping them in favor of the app.
This is the best butt plug on the market and I find it perfect for solo or public play, long-distance relationships, to spice things up – and even engaging with performers in the sex cam industry if you’re lucky enough!

If you’re looking for a strong, customizable, silicone plug – I cannot recommend Hush by Lovense enough!
2. Pure Plugs by Njoy – Most Durable Butt Plug(s)
It should come as no surprise that the most durable butt plugs are made of premier surgical stainless steel.
These are durable to the point of being nearly indestructible, incredibly hygienic, and very firm. As you can imagine, there is 0 give with these plugs and they provide an incredibly full feeling.
On top of being firm, they are also very heavy and I was very aware of them the entire time they were inserted. The hoop on the end of the plug is a fantastic feature that allows me to penetrate myself easily, control the plug with simple movements, and is a great way to make the base functional.
The curved shape of the plug and handle make the plug amazing for prostate stimulation and it comes in 4 different sizes so that it’s a perfect option for nearly anyone. These plugs are super easy to clean, very slippery, and can be used with any type of lubricant.

The Njoy Pure Plug butt plugs are unique and, understandably, adored by many.
If you’re looking for something with a thick – yet comfy base, firm texture and love intensive anal play, these are the perfect toys for you!
3. Icicles No. 26 – The Best Cheap Butt Plug
Icicles are the most affordable glass toys on the market, and lucky for us, they also have butt plugs!
These toys are made of borosilicate glass (basically Pyrex) and won’t shatter during use. It is important to check for nicks and cracks before every use, though.
One of the best things about glass butt plugs is that they are great for temperature play and can be warmed up or cooled down with ease.
Once they’re lubed up, the Icicles No. 26 slides in easily and can be used with any type of lube. As with the other two toys on this list, the Icicles no. 26 is easy to clean and comes in two sizes, kind of like the Pure Plugs.
The neck of the Icicles no. 26 is comfortably thin and fits nicely between the cheeks. While it isn’t ideal for anal training, this butt plug is by the best for temperature play, those on a budget, or those looking for something extra-firm.

What Should I Know Before Buying a Butt Plug?
Butt plugs come in a huge variety of different shapes and sizes. The necks, heads and everything varies from toy to toy – in order to provide different sensations, levels of fullness, as well as for anal training!
Thicker necks are great for shorter periods of wear and to train the sphincter muscles to hold open, while thinner necks are best for extended wear or for those who aren’t looking for a full feeling or anal training.
Below there are my top 3 butt plugs from my all-time favorite to the best for those on a budget. The butt plugs below each have their own pros and cons as well as unique features.
While I would much rather continue to suggest the Hush until I run out of breath, I realize that it isn’t for everyone and that others may want something firmer, cheaper, or without all the bells and whistles.
The Pure Plugs are great for prostate massage and the handle makes it easy to thrust with, while the Icicles no. 26 is great for those on a budget.
