Rosebuds - Anal Plugs

Written by Chloe Barron

Plugs, plugs, plugs. There certainly isn't a lack of variety when it comes to the anal plug market. With different shapes, sizes, materials, and features it can be hard knowing where to start. Even if you are a connoisseur of all things butt related, trying to land on the ideal plug can be difficult amidst so much variation. If you're anything like me, a product with a little somethin' somethin' special often stands out beyond its competitors, and truly lures me in. In the case of Rosebuds®, that's exactly why i found myself drawn to them.

Having never previously engaged in any butt play, the dazzling excellence of Rosebuds® butt plugs captivated me. The first day we received a box full of Rosebuds® stock here at our George Street store I found myself mesmerized by their luxuriousness; they were on par with fancy jewelry pieces, and i was in love. Spending hours pouring over how best to perfectly display them in our glass counter cabinet in store filled me with intense satisfaction; there is nothing better than the feeling that arises when you see something so aesthetically pleasing. I decided to do a little research into the origins of these unique pieces and discovered that they are uniquely made in France. The founder of Rosebuds®, Julian Snelling, is a French artist with a particular fascination for the art of eroticism. His pieces are displayed within the Erotic Museum in Paris and are collected by erotic art lovers.

To quote Julian on the merit of anal jewelry: "The late erotic engravings of Picasso made me understand how the anus, especially for women, a star at the center of the beautiful shape of the buttocks, can be beautiful. The jewel is a kiss". The further i read into Rosebuds®  the more i learned of their unique designs, use of high-quality materials, and  artisanal craftsmanship. I realised that what we had received in store was game-changing: we were now the proud stockists of a luxury line of jewelry for the booty.

One of the first things I had noticed about the Rosebuds® plugs were their wide array of sizes; the range starts out quite tiny (perfect for my beginner's toosh) all the way up to, well, quite freakin' large (perfect for the more experienced thrill seekers!). As someone who was always quite intimated by butt play, the delicate nature of the smallest Rosebuds® size put me at ease and peaked my curiosity. In that same day, i decided i would take one home and experience its magic.The next decision that faced me was that of colour: Rosebuds® come in either stainless steel, or anodized aluminium, with the aluminium varieties available in either purple, red, or black. The purple was immediately appealing to me; its sultry hue looked gorgeous, especially in contrast with the plug's crystal. Each Rosebuds® is adorned with a semi-precious or ornamental gemstone, and you can choose from countless possibilities. Some of my personal favourites include the Heliotrope, the Aurora Borealis, and the Spring - which can be found within a range of different sized plugs. Each type of Rosebuds® possesses its own unique beauty and the variety of colours and sizes allow the range to appeal to pretty much any and every taste.

Once I selected my plug, I took it home feeling quite pleased with myself as the new proud owner of such a luxurious toy. In terms of what it felt like to use it, even as someone who had no previous experience using anal plugs, it was neither difficult nor daunting, and it was just as good as I had hoped. The initial insertion is definitely the most uncomfortable part (if i had to comment on any), however I find that to be largely just due to the coolness of the metal (i would recommend warming the plug up in your hands prior to insertion!). You will definitely want to be relaxed and in the mood, and laying on your belly with a partner helping you out will make the experience much smoother. I find that as long as you have some good lubrication, the process is pretty seamless, and once it is in there - that's when the pleasure begins. Intercourse with an anal plug is game changing; the plug works to compress the vagina so that the sensation of penetrative intercourse feels more intense for both you and your partner. Combine that with the use of a vibrator and you will be experiencing orgasms far quicker than you had ever realised was possible.

Fast forward now to a year after my first butt plug purchase and i am now the proud owner of two beautiful Rosebuds®; one purple, one red. I frequently find myself contemplating purchasing another - simply because they are so beautiful that i want to fully flesh out my collection with all different colours and varieties. I have not yet purchased a third, only because i know i don't truly need another (but when does that really stop anyone?) so who knows. The ones i do own are still just as dazzling as ever; especially because they are so easy to clean. Just wash the plug under the tap with some warm water and soap, dry it off, and it is good to go for next time. Alternatively, grab yourself a good toy cleaner and give it a good spray and wipe. The only thing you need to be mindful of is not hitting the crystal against any hard surfaces; the last thing you want is to crack or chip the centerpiece of the plug in any way. Whilst i do emphasize being careful, in my experience thus far the plugs are pretty durable, so there is no need to be overly worried. If you exercise a reasonable amount of caution and clean your plug regularly you can be confident that it will provide you with pleasure for many years to come. Enjoy!
