Hi,

Well there are a number of problems which you can experience while inserting a butt plug into your anus which can include,

1) Anal tears

2) rectal tears

3) introduction of a infection into the anus and rectum leading to proctitis as well as other serious infections

4) if you push up too far, it can become lodged into the rectum leading to intestinal obstruction which can lead to you needing surgery to remove it

5) Damage to the anal sphincters

6) recurrent use of butt plus can loosen the sphincters and may cause fecal incontinence in the long run

7) Anal Fissures - which can cause pain while defecating and also bleeding

8) Anal bleeding

These are only some of the complications which can occur with use of anal toys.

there are risks with using a butt plug

but if you take some special precautions you can avoid these medical dangers.

make sure you wash your plug and your hands with antibacterial soap and warm water before and after use

make sure you use water based lubricants to ease the plug in

don't use larger plugs than you can take. start small.

if you have any discomfort or pain, stop.

go slow.

never insert a plug all the way in so it disappears.

if you follow simple common sense steps you can avoid medical dangerous from using butt plugs

Hello again,

That is true while the dangers are present they can be avoided while using the butt plugs. It is important to monitor yourself for any sort of pain, if you do develop any bleeding do stop immediately.

Infections are a common issue which should be avoided by washing the plug repeatedly with antibacterial soap. Hygiene is key here.
