I started my butt-play adventures with a slim dildo and a small silicone plug. After countless joyful sessions with each, I felt ready to move onto something more daring. When I spotted this stainless steel butt plug at Kinkfest I knew it was just the toy I was looking for. My decision was sealed when I caught the glitter of a giant purple jewel beaming on the base of the plug. This royal toy was fit for a princess! I gleefully took my new plug home to play.
I’d been keen to try a stainless steel toy ever since I’d read Erika’s review of the Njoy Pure Plug on Oh Joy Sex Toy. The idea of wearing something metal inside your butt was more than a little intimidating to me, but it also tickled my curiosity until I knew that I just had to give it a go. And so, armed with a vibrator, my plug and plenty of lube, I embarked on my royal buttplug adventure.
The most noticeable feature of this plug is it’s temperature. When you pick it up in your hand, that bad boy is freezing. Inserting an icy-cold plug is a unique experience, and one that I didn’t find at all unpleasant. It’s a totally new sensation that wakes up all of those super sensitive nerve endings in your anus and makes them very receptive to touch. After a short while, the steel warms up to your body heat, which feels amazing once it’s inside. Unlike silicone plugs, steel plugs conduct temperature beautifully which makes them ideal for temperature and sensation play.
In addition to being cold, stainless steel is also wonderfully slick and smooth. The surface of this toy has absolutely no seams or marks which means it’s easy to insert and comfortable to wear. There are no rough edges to irritate your backside and it offers very little resistance or drag. It doesn’t dry out your lube like silicone toys tend to, which means you can play comfortably for longer.
I’m a huge fan of the shape of this plug. It has a traditional teardrop shape, with a pointed tip flaring out to a rounded body, getting gradually wider. Then at the widest point, it nips in again to a very narrow stem and flared base. This shape has a number of benefits. Firstly, that pointed tip is ideal for warming up the anus, ready for play. It’s a nice small surface that you can press gently against the opening while you wait for it to relax. The gradual widening of the body allows you to gently ease the toy into your backdoor, without feeling forced or tight. I am especially impressed with the narrow stem. I find plugs that allow your anus to accept the toy and then close behind the widest part to be the most comfortable for long term wear. If the stem of the plug is too thick, it can result in a stretching sensation that isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
The princess plugs are definitely heftier than a silicone butt plug. Stainless steel is rigid and heavy and that weight is obvious when you are wearing the plug. When standing or walking, it puts gentle pressure on the opening of the anus, the location of many sensitive nerve endings. This weight and pressure feels amazingly pleasurable without being too intense. The rigid material gives you a really full feeling, even though the plug itself isn’t very large. In this way, stainless steel offers a uniquely sensual experience that I’ve never had with any of my silicone plugs.
This toy has a number of uses. Firstly, it’s a good warm-up for more intense anal play. Secondly, it’s fun to wear for more extended periods to increase arousal and draw your attention to your butt. Like wearing a pair of ben wah balls, walking around with a plug in has a feeling of delicious taboo, like you have a secret that nobody else knows about. Finally, I love wearing this plug during penetrative play. The rigid material and sloped shape help to narrow your vaginal canal, so penetration feels tighter and more intense. The angle of the toy also directs your partner’s penis or dildo towards your g-spot. If you struggle to stimulate your g-spot during penetrative sex, then wearing a butt plug during sex could be a fun solution.
I also adore the base of this plug. When inserted, that little gem looks adorable sparkling between my butt cheeks. It’s like arse jewellery! The base is wide enough to stop the toy venturing further than it should, but small enough to nestle between the folds of your backside so that it’s not obtrusive and uncomfortable.
Stainless steel is an amazing material for butt toys because it’s non porous and easy to clean. It won’t harbour any smells and there is no place for bacteria to get trapped and fester. You can easily clean it in the sink with warm water and gentle soap.
I purchased my princess plug from Black Peaches, an Australian vendor who is sadly no longer operating. However there are a number of similar plugs on the market. DDlg world has a range of stainless steel plugs, including ones with heart-shaped jewels, ones with tails attached and adorable rosebud adornments. You can use the code NESSBOW to get 10% off your order at DDlg world, which makes these plugs super affordable. If you”re interested in something at the higher end of the scale, Lucent makes a very beautiful jewel accented plug with chrome plating.
