A butt plug is a sex toy that is designed to be inserted into the rectum for sexual pleasure.

Unlike the vagina , which is closed off by the cervix , the rectum leads to the sigmoid colon. Objects that are inserted into the rectum can therefore potentially travel up into the bowel : the flared end on a butt plug exists to prevent this.

In addition, the lower bowel above the rectum is easily perforated.
