Want to reach maximum satisfaction and get a good stretch? Check out the best inflatable butt plug for you!
Regular butt plugs make for excellent sex toys. However, they have their limits (even an all day butt plug) when it comes to giving you a delicious sensation of fullness.
If that’s something you are after, you should consider inflatable butt plugs instead.
Here’s the catch, though: while expandable butt plugs can be incredibly satisfying, they must be used with caution to avoid any unpleasant accidents.
That means two things.
First, you need to know what you are doing. Second, you want to be using the best inflatable butt plug for your needs.
So, before getting one, make sure to read our reviews and buyer’s guide below.
Let’s get started!
7 Best Inflatable Butt Plugs (from Small to Huge)
1. Booty Call by Cal Exotics
Material: Silicone | Length: 6.5’’ | Insertable Length: 4.5’’ | Min Circumference: 4.5’’ | Max Circumference: 8.5’’
- Solid core and soft outer texture ensure smooth insertion
- Hose might come loose
- Does not inflate equally on all sides
Like most other butt plugs on our list, the Booty Call features a tapered end for easier penetration, a hand-held pump, and a quick-release button.
However, unlike some other products, this one is equipped with a suction cup at its base.
That means you can stick it onto any smooth surface, sit on it, and treat yourself to some hands-free butt pleasure — the Booty Call should stay securely in place.
One thing to be aware of with this little beast:
It may not expand evenly on all sides. However, the good news is that the asymmetry can actually help push it more firmly against your P-spot (or G-spot if used vaginally).
And if you’d like to try something smaller, check out Lovehoney’s 4-inch model from the same range.
2. Vibrating Inflatable Butt Plug by Lovehoney
Material: Soft Plastic | Length: 5’’ | Insertable Length: 4.5’’ | Min Circumference: 5’’|Max Circumference: 9’’
- Contains latex
- Not waterproof
You won’t find many vibrating inflatable butt plugs out there, but this is one of them. The vibrations are controlled using a wired, battery-powered remote.
Note that the built-in motor makes for a solid core, so you will want to warm up your anus and use plenty of lube before inserting this plug.
You also get the standard tapered endand quick-release button, as well as a long neck and flared base that prevents over-insertion.
While more vigorous use may cause the inflating bulb to pop off, it’s fairly easy to put it back on.
Overall, this butt plug is a great multi-purpose toy that can provide anal as well as vaginal and clitoral stimulation.
3. Dr. Joel Kaplan Inflatable Anal Plug by Cal Exotics
Material: Silicone | Length: 5’’ | Insertable Length: 3.5’’ | Min Circumference: 3.75’’ | Max Circumference: 9’’
- Body-safe, high quality material
- Not very sturdy
The Dr. Joel Kaplan Silicone Inflatable Anal Plug is very similar to Cal Exotics’ Booty Call.
This product also comes with a tapered end, hand-held pump, quick-release button, and suction-cup base.
What sets this toy apart, however, are the price and its size. The Dr. Joel Kaplan Silicone Inflatable Anal Plug is slightly more affordable and better suited for inexperienced anal players.
With an insertable length of only 3.5 and default circumference of 3.75 inches, it’s smaller and easier to push up your butt than the Booty Call.
But all that doesn’t come at the expense of inflation: this little guy can expand up to 9 inches, which is more than what the Booty Call can deliver.
4. CalExotics Inflatable Butt Plug
Material: Silicone | Length: 4.25’’ | Insertable Length: 3’’ | Min Circumference: 5’’ | Max Circumference: 9’’
- Inflates evenly
Tapered end? Check. Hand pump? Check. Suction-cup base? Check. Quick-release button? Check. At first glance, this butt plug seems pretty standard.
But don’t let its conventional look fool you: unlike any of the other toys on our list, this one was specially designed for extended wear.
The detachable hose means that you can insert the plug and keep it in for as long as you want (including under clothes), making it great for anal training.
What’s more, the plug stays inflated even when the hose is removed.
For more advanced anal play, check out the larger model from CalExotics’ range.
5. Automatic Inflatable Vibrating G-Spot Anal Vibrator by Bestvibe
Material: Silicone, ABS Plastic | Modes: 7 Vibration Modes | Noise Level: ＜50db
- IPX7 waterproof
- Automatic inflation
- USB rechargeable
- Can be a little noisy
- Might be too small for advanced players
This is the other vibrating butt plug in our selection. To turn the vibrator on, simply press the button once — and then keep pressing to scroll through the different modes.
What we love the most about this toy, though, is that it has no hand pump: the inflation is entirely automated.
On the flip side, you don’t have as much control over the inflation as with manual pumps.
Due to its ergonomic shape and relatively small size, the device will stay in place once inserted — you don’t need to hold it. This way, you get to enjoy 100% hands-free pleasure.
The curved tip can be fun for both G-spot and prostate stimulation.
Note: do not let water anywhere near the air inlet during inflation.
6. Anal Balloon Pump by Lovehoney
Material: Soft Plastic | Length: 3’’ | MinInsertable Length: 2’’ | MaxInsertable Length: 4’’ | Min Circumference: 2.5” | Max Circumference: 10.25”
- Suitable for beginners
- Contains latex
- May not inflate evenly
Because of its small size when deflated, the Anal Balloon Pump is very easy to pop in your butt or vagina, making it an excellent starter toy for beginners.
However, once inserted, this plug can inflate to more than 3 times its default size — so veteran players have something to look forward to as well.
Like with most other inflatable butt plugs, you may find that the Anal Balloon Pump does not inflate evenly.
However, that’s usually due to improper positioning, so you might want to experiment with different placements to see which one works best.
The bulb is not too sturdy as well, but if it falls out, just screw it back on to continue enjoying this toy. For just 16 bucs this toy delivers what it is meant to!
7. Cock Locker Ace of Spades
Material: Latex | Length: 8.5’’ | Insertable Length: 8’’ | Min Circumference: 2.5” | Max Circumference: 20”
- Perfect for size queens and kings
- Material can cause allergies
- Not suitable for inexperienced users
Now, that is the ideal toy for all you advanced players who love fisting and extreme anal play.
Reaching up to 20 (!) inches in circumference, the Cock Locker is Lovehoney’s largest inflatable butt plug to date.
It looks intimidating even when fully deflated, but that’s more of an optical illusion. This toy’s hollow core means that it is actually quite easy to insert.
However, if you are having any trouble pushing it in, roll it into a dildo-like shape,and use plenty of lube.
What’s more, unlike many other inflatable butt plugs, the Cock Locker inflates evenly on all sides.
Just bear in mind that you may notice a rubbery smell when first using the toy, but that improves over time — and giving it a thorough wash can help too.
Everything You Need to Know About Inflatable Butt Plugs
Where do you buy them?
When shopping for inflatable butt plugs (or any other kind of sex toys, really), you want to avoid Amazon and eBay.
There is a huge counterfeit market, and both of these websites are rife with cheap, low-quality knock-offs. It can be very hard or nearly impossible to tell them apart from the real deal.
While you may be able to land some great deals on Amazon and eBay, saving a few dollars is just not worth it if it comes at the expense of your health or the functionality of the product.
With this in mind, it’s best to buy your inflatable butt plugs straight from the manufacturer or reliable sex shops.
When it comes to sex toys, silicone is the safest material. It’s hypoallergenic, odorless, and, crucially, non-porous.
No matter how hard you scrub them, porous materials are much more difficult to clean and could harbor bacterial growth.
Unfortunately, however, silicone is harder to inflate, which is why you won’t find that many inflatable sex toys made of silicone.
Other materials that are commonly used in inflatable butt plugs include ABS, PVC, latex, and soft plastic.
While these are porous, they are considered relatively safe if cleaned well and replaced often.
However, you want to avoid rubber and jelly; they carry more potential safety risks than benefits.
Size & shape
Inflatable butt plugs come in a variety of shapes of sizes, but they are not all made equal.
Here are some things you should watch out for.
First, you want a product with a tapered end, as that will help ease it in your butt.
Next, it’s best if your plug has a longer neck. Not only are they more ergonomic and easy to maneuver, but they also help prevent over-insertion — and the ensuing trip to the ER.
Last but not least, your butt plug should have a flared base that’s wider than the widest point of the insertable shaft.
That helps keep the plug firmly in place between your cheeks preventing an unwanted trip to the ER.
However if you are just starting out, I recommend checking out the best anal training kit first to start with smaller toys.
The key thing to know about butt plug inflation is that they do not (and should not) inflate at the base.
Why is that? It’s quite simple, really — the whole point of an inflatable butt plug is that it goes easy on the sphincter and only expands once it is well inside the rectum.
In any case, you don’t want to stretch your sphincter beyond a certain point: it’s meant to stay nice and tight for a reason.
If that’s something you might be interested in, you should know that vibrating butt plugs have a solid core (you have to have a motor somewhere…).
Opinions on solid-core inflatable plugs differ wildly. While some people find them easier to maneuver, others report that they can be uncomfortable and even painful to insert.
So, if that’s your first time using a solid-core butt plug, it might be best to start with a smaller size and use plenty of lube.
How to Use an Inflatable Butt Plug for the Best Experience?
Before reaching for the best butt plugs in your collection, give yourself an anal douche to make sure it’s all nice and clean down there.
If you are an anal virgin, start with the smallest-sized butt plug.
Whether you are a newbie or a veteran player, you should warm up the anus using fingers, smaller toys, or your partner’s tongue — and use plenty of lube.
Remember to only use water-based lube with silicone products, as silicone-based lube might damage the material.
When you are ready, insert the plug — nice and slow. Note that you might have to fold or roll up some larger models such as the Cock Locker Ace of Spades.
Once the plug is where you want it to be, give the bulb one gentle pump to gauge how much it will expand. If you need more, keep pumping until you are satisfied.
Don’t forget to take turns inflating and deflating the plug: many people find the alternating sensations quite orgasmic.
In any case, don’t go overboard. If you pump too much and too hard, the device will eventually rupture — and you don’t want it rupturing inside you.
Finally, clean the plug after (and before!) each use. Usually, warm water and soap will do.
Alternatively, you can buy an antibacterial toy cleaner. Some plugs can be washed on the upper rack of your dishwasher (no detergent), but do check the manufacturer’s instructions beforehand.
Don’t forget to slide a condom on the plug if sharing, and don’t immerse the pump in water, as it will fill up.
Last but not least, keep in mind that inflatable toys are not meant to last forever.
Eventually, they will start to show signs of wear and tear. When they do, replace them; you don’t want to risk them coming apart inside you.
Even the best inflatable butt plug isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if you like to feel nicely stretched and filled up down there, you will probably enjoy them a lot.
Just make sure to do your research and read the manufacturer’s instructions before use.
