B-Vibe Petite Rimming Plug Review: Vibrating Rotating Butt Plug

I’m bad at following directions. The b-Vibe Rimming Plug Petite is labeled as a butt plug, but I’m all about versatility. I had to try it both anally and vaginally! The rotating beads that are meant to stimulate the anal sphincter work just as well (or better, in my case) around the mouth of the vagina. With 6 rotating-bead speeds and 9 vibration functions—all controlled via remote!—using the Rimming Plug Petite has been quite an adventure. This toy was my first really premium butt plug, and I was impressed.

Anal Use, Of Course

Let’s get straight to the point: The Rimming Plug Petite’s rotating beads are aaaah in my anal canal. I enjoy normal vibrating butt plugs, and the spinning beads take this to a new level. My sphincter has never been so stimulated. It is a very mechanical motion, not an organic one like an actual person would produce, but that’s fine with me. And truly, there are so many functions to explore.

These balls/beads in the neck of the plug really roll around, changing the shape of the silicone coating as they pass by. The beads can be activated in one half of the neck or the other, or both at the same time for the full spinning effect. And not only can you alternate which rotating beads to use, you can pick between three “steady” settings and six vibration patterns—all of which you can increase the intensity of.

As you can see, the controller has a lot of buttons to press! B-Vibe Rimming Plug Petite controller

The Rimming Plug Petite’s insertable length is right at 4″, an inch shorter than its close relative the Rimming Plug 2. I really appreciate the shorter length, since I don’t do deeper anal play often. I also helps me angle the toy into my G-spot more easily (discussed later in this review!), so I understand comments I’ve seen from other users that the Rimming Plug Petite is better for prostate stimulation than the longer Rimming Plug 2. These aren’t P-/G-spot-targeted toys, but if you angle the tips forward, you can create that effect.

One last note about Rimming Plug use: the plug’s base is a bit chunky to sit on. I can sit and move my ass back and forth gently, grinding against the base, no problem. But for more than half an hour? Eh. Simply, the Rimming Plug is best for shorter, more intense sessions; don’t expect to wear it long-term. Get a b-Vibe Snug Plug (my first positive anal experience) or SquarePegToys Egg Plug (the squish!) if you’re looking to go for more than an hour or so.

Remote Controlled!

The remote makes the Rimming Plug hands-free. It was actually my first remote controlled sex toy, and the remote let me discover new ways to toy.

First, obviously, the remote makes it so incredibly much simpler to cycle through all the pattern + intensity options while the plug is in my ass. No reaching backward and trying to find the right buttons.

Then, pervert that I am, I can actually sit at my computer desk and type away while I have the Rimming Plug running. I can stand this for about ten minutes while I’m trying to speed through some sort of editing work I’d rather not be doing. Eventually my ability to focus gets overwhelmed by the pulsing vibrations!

It’s a strange feeling, not using my hands to masturbate. (Well, technically I am using one hand when I occasionally change a setting on the remote control, but you get my point.) Sure, I’ve written extensively about suction cup dildos, which technically are hands-free too. But with suction cup dildos, even after they’re securely stuck to whatever, I’m using my arms and hands to brace myself and/or push off against a wall/bathtub/Liberator Wing/etc. With the Rimming Plug, I’m sitting still, barely moving, and still having tons of orgasms. I just don’t know what to do with myself, it’s so unusual.

After my initial masturbatory experiences with the Rimming Plug Petite, I had this great vision of wearing the plug vaginally while giving a blowjob. But this was not to be: I just can’t keep my legs closed tight enough (😉) to hold the plug in my vagina while I’m bobbing back and forth. Thankfully, my ass is much better at holding the Rimming Plug in.

My partner loves this. He’s pretty excited about vibrating cock rings, but the Rimming Plug is now his new favorite sex toy. Manipulating my responses, with all the different settings, is apparently a huge turn-on. He knows which of the two or three patterned settings I like, and then he manipulates the rotating ball settings and the vibration intensity along with those patterns.B-Vibe Rimming Plug Petite

I admit that it can be a little jarring to have the vibration speed suddenly upped two notches. Believe me, we’re both glad that my Rimming Plug blowjob idea didn’t work out, because he could’ve suffered some damage. Having the rotating beads cranked up abruptly, especially when I’m really turned on, gives me violent orgasms of the head-thrusting-backward variety.

So we’ve had a great time with the Rimming Plug. Most of all, being able to say, “Give me something longer” after he’s used it on me is definitely the sexiest thing that’s happened in my bedroom this month.

b-Vibe Rimming Plug as a Vaginal Plug

I’ve been on an anal stretching journey lately: working toward having anal sex comfortably. I’m slowly making progress, but I wanted to get used to the Rimming Plug’s 1.4″ diameter (just below “average” toy/penis size) by trying out its functions vaginally first.

I sat on the edge of my bathtub and decided to see just how much of the length I could fit. Though I was working at cross purposes with the chunky base, I had no problem inserting the top half of the base. The bottom half sticks out a little but is surprisingly comfortable when it sits wedged between my inner labia. And then I started experimenting with the handheld remote, and the fireworks began.

When I say I wasn’t expecting too much out of the Rimming Plug vaginally, I’m serious, because I usually need motion with my internal vibes. This means I have to be thrusting a vibrating dildo if I want to really enjoy the experience. But the Rimming Plug…the motion is something else. Once I got the the rotating balls and one of the vibe patterns going, my vagina knew something was up. Something really interesting, that is. The rotating balls add an extra motion around the stem that reminds me of the in-and-out of thrusting, even when the plug is stationary.

I was fascinated by the rimming feeling right inside my vag. Add to that the fact that the entire plug vibrates, from the top point down to the very bottom of the base. (There are two separate motors inside.) This means that the vibrating base is also stimulating my clitoral shaft. The vibrations in the base are nowhere near as intense as the ones in the bulbs and in the rotating neck, but that actually works out well for me.

Counting Orgasms

Apparently there are people out there who make orgasm spreadsheets, and the more power to them if that’s helpful. But there’s no way I can possibly count how often I come, because (for large sections of the month, at least), my orgasms tend to flow together. And as I tested the Rimming Plug, I pushed my multiorgasmic superpowers to the max.

After I first inserted the Rimming Plug Petite in my bathroom, I stood up and moseyed over to the bed with the plug still inserted.1 I propped myself up and started playing with the patterns more, of course. The amount of possible adjustments is pretty crazy, but before too long I figured out which of the patterned settings I liked most (the oscillating one), and how high I wanted the vibration strength. As I messed around with the controller, I kept thinking about how great the rotating beads felt. Pair that with one of the fairly rumbly vibration patterns,2 and I realized that yes, the Rimming Plug was really going to work for me.

It must’ve been about five minutes later that I came, which wasn’t a huge shock, but then…the Rimming Plug basically turned me into a multiorgasmic puddle.3 Typically I do have to work some/wait a minute or two to keep getting off, but I don’t know what this plug does to me and my vag+vulva, because once I start, I have a hard time stopping. I think I got up to seven (or so?) before I turned the plug off. Sometimes too much is too much, even for me.

Now, I can’t always replicate this effect.4 (And I’m certainly not promising that you can, since individual anatomies are so different.) This was a fairly sensitive day for me. But god was it good.

Technical Details

Cleaning

I like the Rimming Plug so much vaginally and anally that I’m glad I can safely switch holes, by sanitizing after anal use. (This meant a 10%-bleach solution, making sure to not fully submerge the bottom of the base long-term because the Rimming Plugs are splashproof but not waterproof.)

The Rimming Plug Petite’s silicone coating is a little draggy, needs some good scrubbing to fully clean. The crevices in the logo (imprinted on the base) require a bit more work too. This is my biggest criticism of the toy.

Noise Level

With all the fuss I’ve made over how great the Rimming Plug is, you might be wondering whether you could use this toy out in public. My answer is: It’s probably not a good idea. First, the large base isn’t the best for long-term wear. And if you are wearing it vaginally, then there’s a good chance that it’ll try to come out. (Check out an app-controlled vag vibe instead if you want greater wearability.)

Even if you’re wearing the Rimming Plug Petite anally, there’s another problem with trying to wear it discreetly.5 The rimming beads make a whirring noise that’s louder than most bullet vibes. It’s not extremely loud—like wand vibe loud—but it’s noticeable. The noise level doesn’t bother me or my partner when we’re in our bedroom (in fact, it’s a lot quieter than our squeaky bedframe!), but it’s definitely not “whisper-quiet.” You would probably be able to use this without someone in the next room hearing, but in that case you’d need a very heavy blanket.

Battery Life

The Rimming Plug charging cord now lives on my bathroom counter. I’m constantly running the battery down on this thing.

It’s not that the battery life is really short, though it’s not incredibly long either. The manual says the battery life is an hour, but I’d say mine lasts about 50 minutes when I’m using mid-level vibes plus the rimming beads all the way around.

And there’s another battery to consider. Now that I’ve been testing the Rimming Plug Petite for 6 weeks, I haven’t yet run down the remote control’s CR2032 battery. So it’s long-lived. Still, I’m happy that I coincidentally had bought a pack of CR2032 batteries in bulk off Amazon a week before I received the Rimming Plug. It would be nice if the remote was rechargeable as well, but it’s a slight hassle for the amount of enjoyment I get out of the toy.

Final Thoughts

My Rimming Plug Petite review is the unexpected and wonderful story of how a butt plug ended up in my Dildos category. When I first released this review, in 2017, I remarked that it was sad that rotating beads are usually only found only in non-body-safe vibrators—I’m grateful that’s changing now. Paired with the plug’s intense patterned vibrations, the rimming beads create something very similar to a thrusting sensation. Never before have I done so little work for so many orgasms.6

Really, the best summary of the Rimming Plug Petite I have for you is: It’s a whole helluva lot of fun. Rotating beads for the win! They roll and roll, really stimulating my anal canal. Damn, this is a good butt plug. 

The remote control offers so many options!—but easy to use. This option is great if you want to let your partner control your pleasure.

As much as I enjoy the plug, you may not like it if you prefer steady vibrations, need a very long battery life, or want a super-duper quiet toy.

Notes

  1. Indeed, I can walk with the Rimming Plug inserted, but go too fast or open your legs a little wider than normal and it falls out.
  2. The Rimming Plug isn’t We-Vibe Tango intensity, but it does have a kick.
  3. Figuratively. The Rimming Plus doesn’t make me squirt.
  4. Hormones matter.
  5. A remote-controlled butt option that would be good for this is the Nexus Ace.
  6. This did later change too: I discovered thrusting dildos!!!

    Wow, great review here. My GF and I have been starting some anal play, and we have a few plugs, but she loves the vibrating one that we have. I am really interested in the rotating beads part of this one, and I think she will be too. I totally agree with you a to why there aren’t more body safe toys with the rotation / beads option? Come on manufacturers! Anyway, thanks again for the review. I love you site. Keep up the great work!

      Thanks so much, and you’re welcome! Hopefully silicone plugs with rotating beads will be a part of the market that grows, just like body-safe thrusting dildos have in the past year.
