First Butt Plug Review: Doc Johnson Mood Naughty Anal Plug Kit

The First Butt Plug I Wish I’d Had: Mood Naughty Trainer Kit

For a first butt plug, I *cannot* recommend Anal Trainer Kit “In a Bag” (formerly Mood Naughty 1!) enough. It’s body-safe silicone in perfect tapered shapes—so easy to insert. And, the size increments between the 3 plugs are actually sane: no huge leaps up (*cough* Perfect Plug Kit *cough*). Also, Mood Naughty Plugs’ T-bar bases fits between your butt cheeks well; they don’t rub like a “jewel” plug can. So many people do wind up with round jewel bases in their first butt plug—and those are cute, but they’re really not great to wear around. Sure, they’ll turn you on, make you wet and aroused, but chafing is a common complaint.

Holy hell, I wish I’d had this set when I was first exploring anal sex! (Lots of missteps there.) Even today, when I’m looking to work up to an above-average-size plug like the excellently squishy Oxballs Ergo small or SquarePeg Egg Plugs, I’ll pull out the biggest silicone training butt plug.

This beginner’s butt plug review will go through the *hows* and *whys* of the Silicone Anal trainer kit in a bag. How is its tapered shape ideal, and why choose this kit over other options?

Mood Naughty 1 Trainer Plugs Overview

So why do I rate Mood Naughty 1 Trainer Kit so highly for new plugging adventures? Because their design is classic—and excellent for that reason. All the Mood Naughty plug features I’ll discuss add up to one thing: Comfort. (Not to mention ease of use, and SAFETY.)

The Tapered Shape

All the best beginners butt plugs share one trait: a taper. A gradual slope. Their shape starts small, then widens progressively. This tapers allows your sphincters to be stretched gently. So you don’t hurt yourself by starting big.

The Mood Naughty plugs are cookie-cutter-classic in terms of how gradual their taper is. It doesn’t get any easier, if you’re a new butt plug wearer trying to insert an anal toy for the first time. Still, as noted in the tips in the next section, you might want to go slow to take the full length.

And Mood Naughty Plugs do start small but they’re not pointy at the top—they’re just rounded enough. My first butt plug was a Tantus Perfect Plug, and it was poky. 😝 Not so with Mood Naughty 1, size small.

The Thin Neck

After the whole “bulb”—the body—of any Mood Naughty plug is in, the narrow neck will allow your sphincters to close up some. I love this for comfort reasons. When I’m wearing a plug around, my anal canal prefers to not be stretched continually. My sphincters want to close up again, and the narrowness of Mood Naughty necks lets that anal muscle relax.

I can wear Mood Naughty plugs for hours with no discomfort—like my other favorite (firm) silicone plugs for long-term wear, the b-Vibe Snug Plugs. Those b-Vibe plugs are harder to get in because they’re not very tapered at the top, so I recommend the size #2 to anyone who has a little plugging/fingering experience and who wants to feel some wiggling in their booty as they move around (weighted balls inside!).

The Base

So-called “T-bar” bases are far superior to round bases for longer plug wear, because the former follow the curve of the wearer’s butt crack. They also are much less likely to slip inside the rectum—ER disaster waiting to happen—than jeweled “princess” plugs. Jewel plugs might look cute, but I recommend an Njoy Pure Plug if you want the *heft* and hardness of a metal plug. (Pure Plugs feature a larger loop base, not a round one.)

Mood Naughty plugs have a loooong T-bar base, that fits into my crack perfectly. It’s flat, and it just sits right. It keeps the plug outside my ass securely, and I barely notice it at all.

The only possible negative of a T-bar base is that Mood Naughty plugs are not good to wear during vaginal sex. The front of the base actually ends smack-dab in the middle of my vaginal opening; there’s no way I could wear it while having sex with a penis or a dildo.1 But I can play clitorally—like with the bad-ass We-Vibe Melt clit “suction” pulsator—while I have my large Mood Naughty in, no problem.

The Sizing

The Silicone Training Kit in a Bag has 3 sizes of silicone butt plug included:

  • Small is 0.8″ diameter × 3″ insertable length.
  • Medium is 1″ diameter × 3.75″ insertable length.
  • Large is 1.25″ diameter × 4.25″ insertable length.

The Silicone

Silicone is the superior material for first butt plugs because it’s

  1. functionally nonporous (body-safe), so it won’t allow bacteria to breed on its surface; and
  2. at least somewhat flexible, so it can bend with the wearer’s rectum.

These anal training plugs are a firmer silicone density (35A to 40A shore durometer), so they are still hard enough to insert easily. They don’t fold over if your sphincters aren’t open yet. But the thinner silicone of Mood Naughty necks and bases is slightly flexible. (If it’s thin enough, even firm silicone will bend.)

I loooooove soft silicone toys, vaginally especially and anally when it comes to riding. But for a first butt plug, you do want a toy that won’t bend TOO much, as it’s hella difficult to insert something jelly-soft when your ass has never gotten it in before. My only beef with the gorgeous SquarePegToys Egg Plugs, for example, is that their super-soft silicone is difficult to get past my sphincters when I’m not fully warmed up. I gotta be open already, ready to go, before insertion.

But for truly long-term wear, and definitely for the feeling of having your ass stretched & held open, Egg Plugs are far superior to Mood Naughty plugs. I’ve worn my Mood Naughty 1 plug, large, for 3 hours at a time (and could’ve gone another hour beyond that). If you want all-day, or all-night, wear, then the squishiness of SuperSoft silicone plugs does win out for comfort.2

First Butt Plug Insertion & Wear Tips

So how do you insert a butt plug? Quick tips:

  1. *USE LUBE.* The anus doesn’t get naturally wet (though some mucous may be produced once you’re in.) You need a good lubricant for comfort. Consider a lube shooter to make sure you’re lubed up before insertion.
  2. Insert slowly. Just the tip, first; see how much you’re comfortable with. Go as slow as you need. You may want to insert a little, stop, pull back some, then go deeper.
  3. Stop if you feel pain. Trust your sensations! Your body will tell you if it hurts, that’s a sign you may be doing damage.
  4. Remove and/or relube if it feels dry. Remove if you feel the need to push / suddenly need to go poop!

Last, an inevitable fact about butt plugging is that shit happens. I’ve seen it claimed that if you’ve had a recent bowel movement, then wait two or three hours, and your rectum should be clean. **NOT SO** for me. My plugs always end up with shit on them if I go more than 3 inches in without prior cleaning—it doesn’t matter how long ago I’ve pooped or haven’t pooped. (And I’m telling y’all, I eat a goddamn lot of salad and vegetables, so it’s not like my diet is lacking fiber. I’m actually craving broccoli right now. 🥦)

If this is you too, you might consider an enema bulb kit if you want to avoid extra cleaning. Getting an enema bulb can make a world of difference when it comes to anal confidence and, especially, working your way up to bigger toys. To clean dirty plugs, though, wash with soap and water after removal. Then sanitize with either rubbing alcohol (70%), 10% bleach solution, or by boiling (nonvibrating toys only).

Vs. Silicone Anal Exerciser Kit

Another excellent beginner’s butt plug option is the Silicone Anal Exerciser Kit. Like the Mood Naughty Kit, this is a set of 3 plugs that are spaced in reasonable increments. A quarter inch (0.25″), maybe 0.3″, diameter is the most comfortable amount to increase between toys when you wanna size up safely.

The Anal Exerciser Kit lets you work up to an average 1.5″ diameter, because its small plug is like the medium size of the 3 Mood Naughty/Trainer in a Bag kit!

Personally, I like the teeny-ness of the smol Mood/Trainer in a Bag set, since my anus is very tight. Other larger / Male / just more expansive posteriors will have no problem with the 1.1″ diameter of the first Anal Exerciser kit, so individual anatomy varies here. Remember, use plenty of lubricant!

Final Thoughts / Mood Naughty Ranking

I think I’ve given away my thoughts on the Mood Naughty 1 Plugs already: they’re simple, they’ve got a tried-and-true shape, they’re the EASY way to wear an anal plug for the first time. It’s best beginner butt plug set I have to recommend.

Listen, I could barely fit the teeeeeeniest anal toy in when I first wore a butt plug—a mere 0.8 inches diameter was an intense experience. So the smallest Mood Naughty plug, at 0.75 inches wide and shorter than a finger, makes sense to me. Once your butt gets used having anything inside,3 the 1-inch-wide medium size is very doable—if your anal canal is lubed up. (Lube, always!!!) And then we’re to the large Mood Naughty size—still slim, but an excellent warmup to the Blush Neo Elite 7.5″, my favorite anal suction cup dildo.

It may be firm, but the large Mood Naughty Plug is A-OK for me to wear around for hours. That classic shape is A+.

  1. You do want a round base for anal wear during PIV sex: the Blush Luxe Beginner Kit includes 3 plugs with similar widths to the Mood Naughty 1 Trainer Kit, but circular bases.
  2. Consider relubing partway through: The Butters is the most long-lasting anal lube too, and I prefer it with these really soft wearable toys.
  3. Give it a couple weeks, you’ll need at least a few trial runs.

1 thought on “First Butt Plug Review: Doc Johnson Mood Naughty Anal Plug Kit”

  1. I actually prefer the CalExotics Anal Exerciser Kit and recommend it for a few reasons.

    1) I think the 1″, 1.25″, 1.5″ sizing is much better than Mood Naughty’s 0.75″, 1″, 1.25″. The Mood 0.75″ plug feels too small to be useful as that’s the size of a finger and I already have ten of those, while the CalEx 1.5″ plug nicely fills the gap between the 1.25″ plug and the many 1.5″+ dildos/penises. You don’t need to buy the Snug plug in addition to the Mood Naughty to fill that gap.

    2) The shorter base of the CalEx allows wearing the plug for PiV without the base getting in the way while being more comfortable than Blush’s round base.

    3) The shape of the CalEx plugs, with the widest point in the middle and the thicker neck, makes taking them out easier with a gentler stretch on the way out that also leaves your butt more ready to accept the next thing.

    Part of my preference may stem from using the plugs differently – I use them for anal prep and/or to wear during sex, rather than for long term wear – and part is that either I got lucky or you were unlucky because my set had no strong chemical smell and the seams on the neck are barely noticeable to my fingers and completely unnoticeable to my butt (I hadn’t noticed them at all until I read your comparison and went to check).
