Do you know the Lovehoney Booty Buddy butt plug plug in stainless steel, offered by Lovehoney? Surely not, because it is not a renowned sextoy, nor even an incredible novelty in this field. However, it would be a shame not to be interested in it, as long as you are looking for a low cost and quality butt plug. Indeed, the Booty Buddy is a small butt plug with a secure base and made of 304 stainless steel. It has everything to please!
Lately, we had the opportunity to review some Lovehoney butt plugs, but which are not made of stainless steel, like the Galaxy butt plug, very nice, but made of silicone or the Lovehoney metal butt plug, nice, but made of metal and not stainless steel. If you want to know more about the Lovehoney Booty Buddy stainless steel butt plug, we invite you in our product review! And while I’m thinking about it, you can also check out our guide to choosing your butt plug according to your desires or the list of the best butt plugs we’ve had the opportunity to review on the website since we started (but only available on the French website).
Lovehoney Booty Buddy Butt Plug packaging
We start as in every review, with the box of this sextoy! It is a typical Lovehoney box, here in white and orange, to indicate that it is a unisex product, like the Double Booty butt plug we reviewed. This box is small, rather square and made with rigid cardboard.
On the front we have the picture of the butt plug, with the Lovehoney logo at the top, then on the side, the name of the product and at the bottom, a funny little message that says “Steel the Show”.
On the back, you can see a presentation of the product and Lovehoney, while on one of the edges, some details about its use. The box was slightly damaged on arrival, which is very rare. However, the product was not damaged in any way upon arrival.
Once we open this box, we have inside, a small user manual, then a black storage pouch with pink cords. This is the same type of pouch as for the Lovehoney curved glass dildo and the realistic glass dildo from Lovehoney.
Lovehoney Booty Buddy Butt plug physical details
As you can see on the pictures, it is a small stainless steel butt plug, quite classic, but with a curved shape to stimulate the P-spot, but also a head thought for that. Indeed, we can see that it has a recess and a flat part which will be perfect to massage the prostate. We’ll see if this is the case during my tests. Apart from that, we have a fairly present base, with the bottom oval, while the top is flat. It is a “T” base with a longer part at the front and a little less at the back. I didn’t pay attention to whether the Lovehoney logo was present, I feel like we or it is really very subdued.
The size of the butt plug
As you can see from the pictures, it’s not a big butt plug. In fact, it is rather small, perfect for beginners. Indeed, it measures 10,16 cm (4″) of total length for 8,89 cm (3.5″) insertable. And regarding its diameter, it measures 2.22 cm (0.87″) at its widest, which gives you a good idea of its volume. Again, this is a model for people who are just starting out.
To tell you a little more about this stainless steel butt plug from Lovehoney, you should know that it is called the “Booty Buddy” and that it shines due to the stainless steel. But the most important point is clearly its weight! Indeed, this one weighs 250 grams! To compare with other stainless steel plugs, the Rosebuds butt plug Large weighs 310 grams, while the Rosebuds Medium weighs 170 grams. This gives you a good idea of its large weight relative to its small size.
Lovehoney Booty Buddy butt plug materials
Needless to say, but it is also my mission in this review, it is made of stainless steel 304. It is, as its name indicates, steel that does not oxidize. However, it is a heavy, rigid material, which is a disadvantage for some people, but also an advantage for others. However, if steel is not your thing, this plug also comes in a silicone version. Either way, stainless steel is a body-friendly material, containing no phthalates or latex. It is one of the best materials that can be found in the making of sex toys.
Lovehoney Booty Buddy butt plug use
Now, that we have seen what this butt plug looks like and what it is made of, it is time to make a point on its use. This is not rocket science, but there are a few things to know about it.
What can be done with it?
If you are new to this website, maybe you are discovering for the first time what an butt plug is. This is what I tell myself when I write this part of the review. A butt plug, as its name indicates, is made to go in the buttocks. Apart from that, it is a sextoy that can bring you more than one benefit. Already, with its particular shape, it should be not bad to stimulate your prostate. Then, knowing that it is made of stainless steel, it is possible to play with the temperature of the butt plug. Either cool it down or warm it up before use. The steel takes very well the temperatures that we impose to him.
Moreover, a butt plug can stimulate the anus, but also the perineum, the penis or your vagina, depending on the situation. Either during a penetration, or come to press on the anal walls to reduce your vaginal canal, or in addition to the classic masturbation. You will see that you have several ways to use it.
What lubricant can I use with this butt plug?
On this side, you have completely the choice! In fact, since it’s a stainless steel butt plug, it supports all types of lubricants on the market! I personally like to use silicone based lube, as it is one of the few cases where this is possible. But you also have the option of using a water-based lube. Again, this is not a requirement, but it is still recommended, both for the insertion, but also for its mobility once in place.
How to clean it?
Again, the operation is simple. Here, you don’t have any electronic or sensitive parts. It is as possible to boil it as to pass it under tepid water with a little soft soap. Be careful not to dry it with an abrasive element. A soft cloth is recommended to avoid water marks once dry.
Lovehoney Booty Buddy butt plug efficiency
Now that the introductions are done, you know the Lovehoney Booty Buddy a little better, but you still don’t know if it’s a good model or not. To tell you a little more about it, we tested it. I’ve done this exercise myself to tell you more about its efficiency. I have already reviewed a lot of butt plugs and my favorites are often the stainless steel ones, rather heavy, it is already a good point for the continuation! So here is my opinion on the stainless steel butt plug Booty Buddy from Lovehoney!
Insertion and handling
To begin with, we have to introduce this butt plug! And I’m not talking about introducing it here, but in its literal sense. Yes, first of all, you have to insert it into your anus. Personally, I don’t use any lubricant with a stainless steel butt plug, just a little saliva to make it go in and that’s all. Admittedly, I’m used to it, but in reality, the steel slides pretty well. We have little friction when inserting it, unlike silicone.
For my part, the insertion is very simple, the head goes in and finds its place without worry. I can’t say that the insertion is complicated. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Then, with its long base, it is easy to reposition it if it moves a little or press on it to put pressure on the prostate, for example. The only small defect, which is not really a defect, is when sitting, I find that depending on the angle, the head of the butt plug can be slightly uncomfortable, but pleasant at the same time. I was able to sit with it for several tens of minutes, it is not a concern. From the tip, no problem to note. In short, in terms of its insertion and handling, it is a good model.
As far as sensations are concerned, it’s not bad. Indeed, its shape adapts well to the prostate stimulation, even if in length, it is a little less good. Let’s say that depending on your position and the one of the butt plug, you may want a stronger and more direct stimulation, here, it’s softer, more subtle, even if you feel the head sliding on the prostate. It is clearly a butt plug for those who want to start. I find it more suitable for people who have a prostate to enjoy it fully, even if it remains unisex. I find that it lacks filling effect, because in width, it remains rather thin. But on its stimulation of the prostate, it is rather good, for a small butt plug like this.
Lovehoney Booty Buddy butt plug final thoughts
To conclude, this stainless steel butt plug is not bad at all. Of course, it’s a bit small in width and lacks a bit of length to be at its best. But it’s also a plug for beginners, that’s understandable. Good quality, solid steel and rather affordable, it’s a good model, with a certain weight, a good secure base and a rather pleasant curvature.
