Fun Factory BootieMy history with butt plugs has not been especially eventful, nor has it been particularly blissful. My first plug was the adorably sparkly Buddy, which, while well-meaning, would not stay in my ass. Next was a vibrating butt plug that was tiny enough to feel nice, but was attached to a cord. Then I was gifted the ever-popular Ryder, a plug bit too extreme for me to enjoy at the moment (I’m a weakling, I know) which I totally love. My most recent butt plug rendezvous was with Bob, a very comfortable and well-designed plug, save for the worryingly small looped base.

Despite this brief bout of plugs, I feel completely secure in making the following statement: the Fun Factory Bootie is one of the best butt plugs out there. It’s become an instant favorite of mine, and I’m guessing other butt plugs will have a hard time knocking the Bootie off its pedestal.

The Bootie comes in three sizes. The small, which I tried for this review, is a quite petite plug — only three inches long with a diameter of one inch at its widest point. The base is a little over three inches long. This toy is made of 100% silicone, and thus is completely sterilizable (a must when it comes to anal toys, in my opinion). The silicone has a soft matte finish to it, and is pretty dang pliable.

Due to the smallness of the Bootie, I see little reason anyone would have trouble inserting it. The base is actually quite easy to grip. It goes in smoothly, easily, and pops into place. I can really feel the Bootie, I think due to its curved shape, and my muscles can’t help but tighten, then release, tighten, then release. This is new to me — this feeling of my ass wanting to play with the plug — and it makes the experience all the more delicious. It actually turns me on, unlike most of the other butt plugs I’ve tried which just fill me up and hang out there.

Besides the sensation of wearing the Bootie, my second favorite thing about it is the base. Finally, a base that is both extremely safe and extremely comfortable. I’m a bit paranoid about smallish bases, and this one is definitely long enough to put all my fears to rest. I feel completely at ease sitting on Bootie, and the base never becomes annoying. Never. It rests between my cheeks perfectly. It may actually be a bit too long for some, as it tickles my vulva sometimes.

I don’t know if this review has been convincing enough, since it’s hard to really explain how much fun I have with Bootie. In any case, this is the plug I wish I’d bought as my first butt plug. This is the plug I want to use on my boyfriend when he’s ready. And this is the plug I’m going to recommend to everyone, especially because — at $35 — it’s an awesome deal.

Bootie is a perfect example of why I created the Hi, I love you sub-category of reviews. It was love at first insertion.

Get the Fun Factory Bootie at one of my fave shops:
Early to BedSheVibeGoodVibes, Babeland,
Pleasure Chest, or Come As You Are (Canada).

    Good review. Sounds like a great butt plug.

  • vanimp

    I think I might just like this one too. Comfort and safety with butt plugs are high on my priority list. Great review hun thanks! x

  • Ohh it sounds wonderful! 😀

  • Carrie Ann

    I can’t stop thinking about how in the hell I’m going to describe this thing when I do my review.

    We should all just stand up and say “It’s fun” and be done with it. Others will buy it and chime in and soon the whole world will be a chorus of “Buy the Bootie. It’s fun!” and no one will be able to explain why but we’ll all have happy asses.

    Or, maybe I should just copy and paste that as my review. Lol

  • @Carrie Ann: Yesss. You got it.

    Okay I’ll take your advice on this one and get it at some point 🙂

    I’ve been pining over the Bootie for months and months, and almost settled on the Buddy until I read this. I think I know what butt plug is now at the top of my list now.

  • Selective Sensualist

    I like the Bootie, too, but have found that I sometimes have difficulty inserting it. I have to be extremely relaxed to be able to get it past the bulbous head. But I absolutely love the plushy, soft silicone — and the neck and the base are absolutely perfect (though the base might get in the way a bit during VIP sex). The Bootie is my second fave plug, next to the LELO Bob. (And I still need to try my Romp anally since you recommend it so highly — it might just topple my ranking!)

  • You were one of the many people who recommended the Bootie to me, and I love it. It’s awesome.

  • Bri

    I think this is the perfect name for a butt plug, cute but not too cutesy.

  • sophie2229

    I think the asymmetry would just bug me.

  • It’s cute. Still trying to decide between this and the Ryder. I’d prefer the larger size, but I also like the shape of the Bootie. I’d go straight for the Romp if it weren’t so darn expensive. Although I’m sure it is well worth the investment, my budget will not allow it. 🙁

  • Raevan

    Great review. I definitely have to keep this plug in mind for the future.

  • fompi

    Great product, indeed. The only way to improve it is to make it in different sizes, or lengths. A slightly longer version would make it easier for a man to really get off.

    I bought this today after reading your review. I’ve never done any anal play before so this sounded like the perfect thing to start out with. It looked big to me but I just went for it with lots of lube and took my time. It wasn’t as bad as I thought and it went in easily with no discomfort. Maybe I was too focused on getting it in painlessly that I didn’t notice if it felt good going in. I’m glad I took the time to do some research first instead of picking up some random plug.

    Today I was telling my partner about this amazing butt plug I’ve wanted for ages and I decided to read him this review out loud. His immediate response was “We have to have this butt plug. I’m going to buy two of them… right now!” So now I’m eagerly awaiting the delivery of our his and her matching bootie butt plugs (black for me purple for him).

    Old review etc etc but I got this plug a while ago and finally got to try it this last weekend. I love it! My butt sucks so anything hurts going in, but once placed it was great and made me finish really fast.

    My only question is, is there a way to get that “ass smell” out of silicone without bleach, as it’s something I really don’t keep around. The first use left no smell but the second…

  • 10% bleach, 90% water is what I use and it works well, but you could try hydrogen peroxide or denture tablets dropped into water.

  • Dannicula

    Thanks, I shall try that 🙂 I needed to conserve peroxide for my diva cup but I’ll be picking up more today.

    I like the Bootie – it’s easy to insert, feels good, easy to clean, and all that essential butt plug stuff. But the base is kind of a vulva hog with my anatomy.
