Power play is lots of fun, but remember it must always be consensual and negotiable, so be sure to speak with your partner about their limits before beginning. Then, the person who has the power can give rules to the other person. Rules might include how long they must wear the butt plug or things to do while wearing it.

Sensation Play

Sensation play like electrostimulation, spanking, wax, flogging, and more is already a lot of fun. When you add anal plugs into the mix, you take things to a new level of play. Use your butt plugs while engaging in sensation play and watch how heightened your stimulation becomes.
