While butt plugs are fun for both men and women, I’m going to focus this review on butt plugs for women only. The Mister has his own butt toys but I’m particularly excited about the Fun Factory Butt Plug and I’ll be talking specifically about how this is great for female anatomy.
Sorry Guys! I’ll see if I can get the Mister to review one from a male’s perspective soon!
Fun Factory Butt Plug Review
I am absolutely thrilled with my new butt plug.
I also don’t really have anyone to tell about it. I’m sure my girlfriends wouldn’t appreciate hearing about how sticking toys in my butt helps me have orgasms.
It’s a good thing that I can write here.
So this is the Fun Factory Bootie Anal Toy. If it’s not apparent, this is a toy that goes in your butt. A while back I did a write up on how to use butt plugs; if this is totally new territory for you have a read to get caught up on what’s safe and fun to go in your bottom.
As you can see from the picture above, it’s not a huge toy. It feels quite comfortable going in and once it’s in, it’s not overly intrusive.
Butt Plugs During Sex
I’m not sure how everyone else goes about using butt plugs, but for me, I use it as an aid during sex in order to orgasm more easily. I’m personally not a fan of wearing butt plugs out in public or during alone time masturbation. You do you, of course. Here are my experiences.
Several years ago, the Mister and I had a great revelation about me and butt plugs. I was having a hard time reaching orgasm and we were trying tons of new toys and seeing which worked best for him to get me off.
He started seeing a pattern, however.
No matter what instrument was being used on me (vibrator, dildo, fingers, etc), sometimes I wouldn’t be able to cum.
At that point when I was thinking that he should just give up trying to help me get off, he would insert his index finger into my anus and just curled it towards my vagina. This would set off a totally unique sensation in my vagina, not my anus. What the Mister would specifically do is push the tip of his finger against the rectal wall that is shared with the vagina. He would be able to feel whatever sex toy was in my vagina and sort of rub his finger against it. Within about 20 or 30 seconds, I would orgasm.
It fucking worked every. single. time.
Oh god I denied for so long that it was the anal stimulation that really helped me get over the edge. I’m not sure why I denied it, but I did.
Why I Prefer a Butt Plug over a Finger
So the Mister had his magic “make me cum” move that did work every time.
I don’t really love a finger in my bum for a few reasons:
- Fingers aren’t really that clean. Finger nails can be sharp (even with meticulous care) and could cut you. A cut to your anus/rectum can be dangerous because of contact with fecal material.
- As much as he tried, his finger always moved in and out just a little bit. I really really don’t like the sensation of a shallow object moving in and out of my anus.
- Sometimes his coordination with clit, vibrator, and finger-in-bum just wasn’t on target. I don’t blame him!
- I know it’s silly but I wouldn’t prepare my rear at all for entry and I just hoped and prayed every time that he didn’t touch a little poop!
So we went with butt plugs instead of his finger. I am so glad we went this route because it has taken any of the anxiousness out of anal play for me.
All Butt Plugs are not Created Equal!
When you think about the stereotypical butt plug, you usually imagine a spade shaped tip. Most butt plugs are generally round with a pointed tip to make insertion more smooth.
This is generally a good shape for most people. They get the fullness that they desire and it’s easily inserted and won’t get pushed out in the heat of the moment. The problem I have is that this shape of butt plug isn’t targeting any specific region.
It’s just taking up space. The big head is just sitting inside our anus past your sphincter and then it tapers in. If you want prostate stimulation or extra sensation towards your vagina, you need the head of the plug to actually press on that!
The Fun Factory Bootie Anal Toy is shaped with exactly this in mind. There is a small bulb at the end of a curved tip that will press against the front of your rectum. You can actually put your finger inside your vagina and feel a little “finger” on the other side.
In short, this shape does exactly what the Mister’s finger was doing in my bum!
Specifications of the Bootie Anal Toy
This isn’t a large and intimidating butt plug by any stretch of the imagination. The small size makes it perfect for beginners. At the largest point at the end, the plug is 1 inch across. At the narrowest part near the base, it’s a mere 0.6 inches across.
The plug is made from 100% medical grade silicone and can be completely sterilized by boiling.
I can’t stress enough how important it is that your butt plug is made from a non-porous material. When people are first experimenting with anal toys, the temptation is to find the softest material possible so that it doesn’t hurt going in. A better solution is to get a body safe material that won’t give you a burning asshole and use a generous amount of lube.
Body safe materials for butt plugs include (but aren’t limited to) silicone, stainless steel, and glass.
The base of the butt plug is rectangular rather than circular. Some people prefer the long and slim base because if they’re wearing the butt plug for an extended amount of time because it tucks in nicely along your bum crack. A circular base is better for shorter term wear and it doesn’t interfere with things going into your vagina.
I am not in the habit of wearing butt plugs for extended periods of time and, so, I actually prefer a circular base. This toy would be absolutely perfect if it came with a circular base option.
The silicone surface itself is quite draggy. This means that it isn’t completely smooth and is more matte. I think that this is a good choice for this product because we don’t want it sliding out on its own during play. Like other Fun Factory toys that I’ve reviewed, this also means that the surface shows every speck of lint or dust so be sure to keep it stored in a bag or box.
Like I said, I’m over the moon with this butt plug. It’s the first that I have tried with an L-shape and I think it fits my body more comfortably and increases my orgasms significantly. The last other thing that the Mister mentioned is that when we have vaginal intercourse, he feels the little nub pushing on the other side. All butt plugs will make your vagina feel pretty snug but this one added more distinct texture to my vagina. Anyways, he loved it.
The last thing I’d like to remind readers is that if you’re interested in experimenting with anal toys, please be sure to always get a toy with a flared base. This base will physically prevent your anus from pulling in the entirety of the toy and will help you avoid an emergency room visit. Most people are surprised at how strong their sphincter muscles are and this is why there are so many “foreign body” removal stories in the ER. Just play it safe and use toys designed for anal play.
If you’re interested in trying the Fun Factory Bootie Anal Toy, you’ll probably find the best deal on Amazon. There you can read more reviews and see what others are saying about it.
