Rather time sensitive from Formspring:
Hello mouse, How many hours a day do you spend plugged? Have you had any problems or issues being plugged too much? I am concerned since this is something my sir likes as well. Thanks, Sss
Routinely mouse is plugged a few hours each day (3-4). Daddy normally has mouse use a medium sized plug (although the large has been used -- and don't get mouse started on the extra large). The medium gives mouse the feeling that she's just a little full but it's not terribly uncomfortable and actually a bit comforting. It's important to remember the larger you go in size, the more problems you might face. When using the large or the dreaded extra large plug there can be anal leakage (eww and totally tmi). Especially if those are used on a daily basis or left in for long periods of time. The reason mouse mentions the large size...is because everyone's different. Honestly, mouse hasn't had a too much of an issue with the large size, but has heard from others that it can bothersome. Daddy won't have mouse use it often....just once in a while.
Really no issues to report with the medium plug. Will say that it's always a good idea to take the plug out before urinating, especially if you're prone to UTI's. And it really goes without saying to keep all toys very clean. It should be mentioned that the small plug actually causes more discomfort when sitting than the medium one does (at least for mouse)...but that might have to do more with the shape.
One thing, for your very first plug, mouse would say to go to a place that sells them. Look at them and touch them -- buy one and try it out. Then after you can always order online. Always examine glass ones carefully -- seriously you don't want one breaking in there...and if it's been dropped...toss it out. Even if it shows no external cracks...there can be flaws inside that could ruin your day.
Honestly, mouse was rather lucky Daddy has a full set of various sizes he's collected over the years. And size matters...some are labeled medium that mouse would say are tiny...others are labeled medium and seem HUGE.
Thanks for asking about this, it's something we tend to forget about when it's discussed or lightly mentioned. Also, didn't want you waiting a month or two for a reply...Hope it helps and if you have any follow-up questions feel free to leave comment....
