It feels right to begin the series on sex toys with information about butt plugs. Readers are no doubt familiar with this particular toy, and it makes an appearance in many ManLove bestsellers. Made of vinyl, silicone, rubber, latex, or glass, a butt plug can add an exciting level of intensity to a steamy sex scene—in the pages of your favorite ManLove and in your bedroom.

Surprisingly, or maybe unsurprisingly, the butt plug was reportedly invented during the Victorian Era. It was a time of contradictions. At the same time that members of polite society were expected to maintain the appearance of “dignity,” the pleasures of sex were understood and celebrated by many. Explicit erotica was distributed and sexual aids were manufactured, one of these being what’s now known as the butt plug. Allegedly, a European doctor in the mid-1800s recommended that men insert a wooden egg into the anus to avoid “wasteful ejaculation.”

Knowing what we know now, that practice doesn’t seem safe (and it definitely doesn’t make any sense), but luckily the concept has evolved over time, and being “wasteful” is no longer an issue. Well, not for our ManLove heroes at least…thanks, authors! Now, butt plugs are used for a number of pleasures—just take a look at some of the books listed above—and come in various shapes and sizes. Some are so pretty you could display them as pieces of art!  We’ll leave it up to you to decide how to explain that to guests.

With such a wide variety of butt plugs, experimentation can be easy and fun. For those who want to take a page from their favorite ManLove book, check out the links included below. Research and safety are vital!
