🤔 How Long Can You Leave a Butt Plug In? Our Take on This Sensitive Butt-portant Question

by The Dildo Hub

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced butt plug lover, we know that the feeling of it is irresistible. You want to wear it more and more… It might be quite the adventure (we understand that this is what you seek), but still, there are a few things you need to keep in mind if you're going to leave the butt plug in for extended periods! 

A Word of Caution

Remember that if you are a beginner, you shouldn’t leave a butt plug in all day or overnight, no matter what you’ve read or how much you want it. You need lots of practice, foreplay, and lube to loosen your ass before trying something more adventurous with the plugs. It is generally not recommended for advanced users to leave a butt plug in for extended periods of time, as well, but they do, and apparently - they do it successfully.

You can do it, too, but only with practice (as in anal stretching); your butt may be able to keep in a butt plug for an extended period without causing any trouble. It is a process and surely not for beginners. For example, it’s like going to the gym for the first time, not stretching, not warming up, but starting with the heaviest and scariest weights—definitely a no-no.

Remember that your pleasure is not only a physical experience but an emotional one, too. So damaging one of those will surely affect the other. Always keep your naughty activities safe, sane, and consensual.

How Long Can You Safely Wear a Butt Plug? Standard Recommendations for Wearing a Butt Plug

You are probably wondering: how long can you leave a butt plug in? The standard recommendation for wearing a butt plug is for not more than two-three hours. However, specialists suggest starting with a few minutes a day and gradually working your way up to an hour, then two, then three (or more, if you feel like your butt can handle it). But remember that leaving the butt plug in for more than three hours can affect the extremely delicate lining between the anal sphincter and the anus, causing injuries if not taken out on time. If you are probably wondering - why would anyone want to leave a butt plug in for such a long time; then you haven’t experienced the sensation and arousal you get from a butt plug. 

Usually, butt plugs are meant to relax your muscles and prepare you for anal sex; however, you can wear them without having anal sex after - just for the pure sensational feeling you would get out of it. And although we are almost sure that your bum can handle it, if you do start wearing a butt plug for more extended periods but feel discomfort or pain at any time, you should take it out immediately and let your body rest. 

Can Your Wear a Butt Plug All Day? How Long Can You Safely Leave a Butt Plug in?

We know that the pleasure you get from a butt plug isn’t direct and immediate as the one you would get from clitoral or vaginal penetration or any other stimulation during sexual intercourse. It doesn’t distract you from your daily tasks and gives you just the right amount of pleasure during the day. That’s why you can get addicted to it and may want to leave it for the day. So can you wear a butt plug all day? Yes, it is possible; however, as mentioned above, this is out of the question for a beginner. That’s because - if the butt plug is not used correctly, it might lead to inflammation and many other injuries, such as the impossibility of taking it out after.

Sometimes you might not even realize that something is wrong because the inside of your anus is one without any pain receptors. There are some things you can do, though, to wear it for long periods, but only if you are already experienced and have had some practice beforehand. And don’t worry, your butt will not have a huge butt gap afterward. It may be a bit loose at the end of the day, but the anus knows its job, and there is nothing that big to keep it from returning to its original size. 

Can You Sleep with a Butt Plug? Wearing a Butt Plug Overnight

Can you sleep with a butt plug in? It is not recommended, although many claim they do it. We believe you shouldn’t do it because, as mentioned above, you do not have any pain receptors inside your rectum, so even if something goes wrong, you wouldn’t even know it until you wake up. Also, you are unconscious while sleeping; therefore, not only will you not feel anything, but you may toss and turn, and who knows what else. This may cause injuries inside and around your rectum without you even realizing it, especially if the butt plug isn’t the perfect one for you.

Actually, even if it is the perfect one, you might still get injured. The material, size, and everything else you put inside your butt is highly important, as well as whether you are conscious or not during that. So why would you risk sleeping with it when you won’t even be conscious to feel the pleasure from it? You can quickly put it back in when you wake up and actually enjoy it. Think of your health and safety first, boo. You are going to save yourself lots of trouble, we promise. 

How to Prepare for a Long Butt Plug Session

You probably wonder why butt plugs feel so good. And that’s because the anus is a very sensitive simulation center that can deliver pleasure for both men and women (although initially, butt plugs were designed for men). That is why some of you are here, reading this, wanting to prepare for their first or next long butt plug session. And we totally get it!

Despite doctors’ warnings not to leave a butt plug in for extended periods, there are ways you could prepare for it and even do it safely. There are a few things you need to take care of and a few rules to follow, though. So let’s get started on that. 

Don't Be Shy on Lube

Lube is essential when it comes to butt play! Without it, you might not even want to be able to put the butt plug inside. You need to lube up your anus and your butt plug before putting it in and during its removal. And don’t think this is the only time you should apply the lube! You must reapply the lube to avoid dryness and irritation. In addition, it will help the butt plug move as you move.

However, you shouldn’t use too much of it, as it might get too slippery, and the butt plug might slip out if not correctly inserted. Water-based lubes are recommended with silicone butt plugs. Still, you can try out silicone lube with other materials since silicone lube is thicker and more appropriate for all-day usage. 

Choose Appropriate Clothing (if needed)

If you wish to wear a butt plug all day and do it in public, you might need to think of comfortable and discrete clothing that helps keep the butt plug in place, starting with your underwear. We do not want a butt plug falling out of your butt in the middle of a meeting! That is, of course, if you are not working from home.

However, since there is a possibility of leakage, there is a solution, and it’s called period underwear - it doesn’t matter whether you have a uterus or not, you can still wear such underwear. You can also try a harness or any other tight underwear. Again, different sizes and materials will help you keep the butt plug in place. 

Other?

Some materials you should have with you or keep around might help if something goes wrong while wearing the butt plug for an extended period. For example, a tube of lube with you is a must just in case you start feeling uncomfortable because the already applied lube will eventually dry out. Also, in case of leakage, keep body-safe wipes and a plastic bag (in case you need to remove the butt plug for the day).

A tip for wearing your butt plug-in for extended periods is to insert all of it so that it doesn’t fall out or cause any issues throughout the day. If you cannot insert it all in, you probably shouldn’t even wear it for that long. Have some more practice and then try again, or try a smaller one. 

Choosing the Right Butt Plug for Extended Wear

Choosing the correct plug is definitive regarding the question of how long can you wear a butt plug for. One of the things to consider while choosing a butt plug you want to wear all day is the activity you will be doing throughout the day. For example, a butt tail might seem fun. However, it will be fun when you need to run to the store and that fluffy tail decides to show up somehow. 

Material of the Butt Plug

The material is essential when it comes to how long can you wear a butt plug. A silicone butt plug with a T-shaped base works great for long-term wear due to its non-porous surface. It is also the softest material that you can buy out there. Silicone is also fantastic if you are allergic to other materials such as rubber and latex.

A material you should avoid if you wish to keep it in for a longer time is glass due to the possibility of breakage and/or cheap plastic. Another thing you should remember while choosing the material is how easily and efficiently it is cleaned since your health and safety come first.

Size of the Butt Plug

Yes, we know that size matters, and we know you, the experienced butt plug lovers and wearers, are used to having larger butt plugs inside; however, if you wish to have it for an extended time, you should consider a smaller size. A smaller diameter will allow your butt to rest, making it comfortable to wear for long periods; a bigger one will tire you out much quicker.

So, you might not consider it the best option if you are used to bigger ones, but a smaller to medium-range butt plug is better if you wear it for extended periods. Of course, do not choose the smallest one if you are experienced since it can slip out if loose. Instead, choose a medium one that fits. 

Shape of the Butt Plug

As mentioned above, a fluffy tail butt plug isn’t the best to wear for extended periods. You need something comfortable, and anything out of the standard shape may not be in your favor. So, a t-shaped-based medium butt plug is perfect for experienced butt plug lovers (rather than the usual flared shape). Another thing to remember is the neck of the butt plug - you need one with a broad body and a wider tip. 

Take Breaks - Especially When Going to the Bathroom

Don’t try to be a hero and wear the butt plug for as long as possible. After all - we don’t want your butt plug flushed down the toilet, jumping out of the toilet cabin in the office, or falling off your butt while you are peeing, do we? That is why giving your butt breaks is essential, especially when going to the bathroom. These breaks are the perfect time to reapply lube and check how your butt is doing! If you notice any redness, inflammation, or signs of irritation, you should remove it immediately and take care of your butt. 

Also, having a but plug and going to the bathroom are two contradictory acts - it takes your effort to keep the plug in, and your muscles need to tighten up; when urinating, for example, your muscles need to relax and let go. So simultaneously doing both of these things might be not only tricky but also unpleasant and uncomfortable. And we haven’t shut our yaps when it comes to you being comfortable and safe, so listen to us.

Aftercare 

Aftercare is as crucial to your bum bum as the before and during care! After wearing a butt plug for an extended time, your ass muscles will get tired from all the quenching, and they will surely need a recovery before taking another session.

We recommend taking a warm salt bath to relax your muscles because you will definitely need their support soon, and you couldn’t have done it without them! Your butt has been making you feel nice things all day; now it’s time for its reward. So make sure you always treat your bum afterward and give it a few days' rest before the next prolonged pleasure sesh. 

Risks and Side Effects to Consider with Extended Wear

Doctors say that wearing a butt plug after the 4th hour brings discomfort and may harm your butt. However, many people are doing just fine and love having the butt plug inside them for more than 4 hours! If you are one of them, that’s great, but there are some risks and side effects you should consider first before trying the extended butt plug wear. 

Not only can it be painful or impossible to take the butt plug out after such a sesh, but it can also cause swelling around the anal and rectal tissues, which may lead to hemorrhoids or other localized injuries. That is why we have mentioned multiple times - remove the butt plug whenever you feel the slightest discomfort, pain, bleeding, and anything else of the sort; lube, lube, lube; and last but not least - take breaks.

Finally, and most importantly - do not sleep with the butt plug in, even for a nap, because you might risk not noticing any pain or bleeding, therefore not taking immediate action and making things much worse. And we do not recommend or want that for you—your ass matters.

Each body is different, so it’s vital to know yours and take it slowly. Don’t forget to be comfortable and safe, have fun, act according to your body's feelings and sensations & always know your limits.
