Did you know that traditional butt plugs have been around for more than a century? In more recent times, tech updates have made it possible for remote control butt plugs to become a fun and affordable option for long distance couples.

But it’s likely you’re still on the fence!

There are several reasons why you should consider giving them a go!

How Do Remote Control Butt Plugs Work?

Thanks to Bluetooth and wi-fi technology, sex toys like butt plugs can now connect to and be controlled through a smartphone application from anywhere in the world. That means your partner can control the intensity and frequency of your device’s vibrations whether they’re in the same room or many miles away. 

In this guide, we’re going to break down and compare the best remote control butt plugs available today, so you have the necessary information to make the right purchase for your needs!

The Best Remote Control Butt Plugs in 2020

Hush by Lovense

Hush by Lovense

Love innovation? Hush by Lovense was the world’s first bluetooth butt plug and remote control was just the beginning. It also has one of the most powerful vibrating motors for its size.

Speaking of size, we love that Hush has two different size options to choose from. Making it a great choice for beginners and more experienced users.

If you’re looking for an option you could wear all day, the design of the flared base helps it to stay in place comfortably for long periods. It also features spirals on the neck, which helps to keep lubricant where it’s needed most making it easier to remove when you’re finished. 

No matter what adult device you’re looking at, you need to make sure they are made from body-safe materials. Lovense created the Hush using 100% non-porous silicone and to be completely waterproof, making it a great body-safe option that can also be used in the bath or shower.

Hush Partner Controls

When you connect Hush to the Lovense Remote App, you can invite your partner to control the power and pattern of the vibrations from anywhere in the world.

In addition to 7 pre-set vibration settings, the app allows you to control the Hush through sound-activated vibrations (like your voice) and even syncs to your music.

You also have the option to create your own vibration patterns, which can be recorded to use again and again.

Ditto by We-Vibe

Ditto by We-Vibe

If you love deep, rumbly vibrations, the Ditto by We-Vibe has you covered with more than 10 intense vibration settings to choose from!

Even with these powerful settings it can last up to two hours on a single charge. We-Vibe has also included a low power warning you won’t need to worry about it dying in the middle of the fun.

We think the Ditto is a great choice for beginners for two reasons:

  1. The max insertable width is 1.28″ inches (3.25 centimetres), which is much smaller than the Hush’s two sizing options.
  2. For peace of mind, the extended base means there is no chance it will get lost inside.

Speaking of peace of mind, the Ditto comes with a two-year warranty, which is a full year more than most other manufacturers.

The Remote Control Butt Plug We Recommend

Both the Hush and Ditto are high quality and body safe options that most long distance couples will enjoy.

If we had to recommend just one remote control butt plug, it would be the Ditto by We-Vibe.

Here’s why…

Smaller Width

If you or your partner are new to butt plugs, a smaller width makes the Ditto a great starting point.

Two Year Warranty

We-Vibe has an industry leading warranty period, which is double (1 year) the time compared to other manufacturers. Great for peace of mind!

Added Extras

Both options come with the basics like a charging cable and user guide. Where We-Vibe sets themselves apart is including a sample of lubricant and silk pouch for storage so you’re ready to go out of the box!

‘MacBook Pro-like’ Charger

For anybody who’s ever tripped over a charging cable before, the Ditto’s cable has a magnetic connection, which is very similar to the MacBook Pro!

Frequently Asked Questions About Remote Control Butt Plugs

How Do I Find the Right Size Butt Plug?

Start small! The muscles need to be trained to increase their flexibility. Starting with a butt plug that’s too large can be so uncomfortable that you may never want to try using one again. 

How Do I Know if a Butt Plug Is Body Safe?

Since sex toys are unregulated, it can be tricky to know whether they’re safe. The safest materials are silicone, stainless steel, or borosilicate glass (Pyrex). These materials are nonporous, so they won’t be likely to harbor bacteria, and they’re less likely to leach harmful chemicals or dyes than other materials might. 

How Do I Clean a Butt Plug?

As soon as you’re done with your butt plug, you should wash it with warm soap and water. Use a sex toy cleaner if the manufacturer recommends it. Never use a butt plug in any other orifice (like a mouth or vagina) without washing it first, because that may lead to an infection. 

Do You Need Use Lubricant With a Butt Plug?

Yes! Unlike a vagina, the anus does not self-lubricate, so lube is not optional when it comes to butt plugs. For best results, thoroughly coat the butt plug and your anus with lubricant. Relax, insert the toy a little, pull it out, add more lube, push it in a little farther, and repeat until you can eventually get the whole device in. 

What Type of Lubricant Should I Use with a Butt Plug?

Generally speaking, silicone-based lubricant is best for anal play, because it lasts longer than water-based lube and won’t wash away as easily. However, you should never use silicone lubricant on silicone-based toys like the Hush and Ditto because it can degrade the toy over time. Stick with heavy amounts of water-based lube when using the Hush or Ditto. 

Is it Painful to Use a Butt Plug?

When used correctly, a butt plug shouldn’t hurt. However, there is a bit of a learning curve when you’re first using one. If something you’re doing hurts, immediately stop – don’t just play through the pain. 

Can a Butt Plug Get Stuck or “Lost”?

One of the best reasons to get a butt plug is that they’re specially designed with a flared base that stays outside your body. That makes them much less likely to disappear than items that aren’t intended for anal play. 

Will it Feel Like I Need to Poop?

People who are new to anal penetration may feel like they need to poop, because that was previously the only thing those nerve endings were triggered by. Despite this sensation, you generally won’t need to poop after taking out a butt plug.
