lovehoney bionic butt plug

What a neat little contraption this toy is: the Lovehoney Bionic Bullet is a 2-in-1 vibrator AND butt plug (and vibrating butt plug) with a number of varying speeds. The Bullet is body- friendly (aka phthalate free and awesome) and is a great toy for amateur anal-players, although the bulbed shape makes it accessible for both beginners and those who have dabbled in anal play.

The girth of this plug is a little wider than most beginner plugs, but is quite enjoyable once you’ve been warmed up and lubed up, and the vibrating element makes the experience all the more intense. This toy has five different vibrating rhythms and speeds which are great to play
around with and make the experience of the Bionic Bullet different each time. I’ll warn you here though, some of these are pretty powerful vibes and can take a little getting used to, or might be too strong for those extra-sensitive folk.

That said, the removable vibrator: Getting the little bullet vibe out of the bigger plug itself was more difficult than it should have been, and the turning it off is a little difficult because you have to cycle through all of the vibe speeds to turn it off, but those were my only two
complaints. The look and feel of this toy are perfect: the Bionic is a gender-friendly purple color while the silicone provides a lovely texture that makes easy insertion and little friction, not to mention easy cleaning!

This is the first LoveHoney toy I’ve tried, and I was not disappointed. The vibrating element means it can also be used for external stimulation before (or after, or instead of!) using it for its originally designed purposes, and the removable vibrator is sized so that it can easily be
taken with you wherever you go.

The last but not least plug I’ll make for this toy (pun intended) is that it uses just one AAA battery to run and lasts for multiple uses! I loved this since I had some AAAs lying around the house and didn’t need to make a special trip for a more uncommon battery type.

Overall, I’d definitely recommend the Bionic Butt Plug for a variety of reasons and for a variety of types of people. Whether you’re just getting started with anal play or need something to juice up your existing collection of toys, the shape of and vibration patterns on this one make it unique,
stimulating and worth a buy.

P.s. I’d recommend trying this with Sliquid’s Sassy Boody gel--the two make a great pair!

Thanks Lovehoney!

Question:

My husband and I want to start exploring anal sex. I know that you have to start slow, use fingers first and all of that, but what is a good beginners anal toy to get me started?

Answer:

First of all, before you bring sex toys into the picture, make sure you add lube. It can be either silicone base lubricant or water based lubricant (unless you’re using silicone toys, then just use water based lube), but your butt does NOT naturally lubricate in any way, shape or form, so you need some lube to help it feel better, go in easier, and to help prevent any pain or tearing. My favorite anal lube to suggest is water based and is called Maximus.

As far as toys, my number one anal toy I love recommending to people is the Flexi Felix from Fun Factory, a 100% silicone set of anal beads. You can start small with just one tiny one, and work your way up. Great first timer dildos are the Silk set from Tantus; they come in small, medium and large. Then of course, if you want to go with a butt plug, I like the Tantus B-Bomb or the Crystal Delights Butt Plug, but these are a little more intermediate than anal beads or small, smooth dildos.

Good luck, have fun, and remember; anal sex isn’t supposed to hurt, so if it does begin to feel uncomfortable, STOP!
