B‑Vibe Snug Plug 3 Medium weighted silicone butt plug review
So many things about the B‑Vibe Snug Plug 3 make me say “yaaaasss.” Its designers especially know what they’re doing, making it comfortable and pleasurable.
I previously wrote that the njoy Pure Plug large is soooo goooood that it’s the reason I rarely review butt plugs. But I think B‑Vibe’s butt toys are different enough from njoy toys that they occupy different niches— both companies’ products have their distinctions among the best anal toys.
The njoy Pure Plug Large feels best for stationary weight and indirect G‑spot pressure. I stand by that statement.
Where the Snug Plug 3 excels is its weights’ movements and, well, its snugness within the anal canal. The real magic happens when you clench— it feels like your ass is discreetly getting fucked, and that’s so unique in a plug.

About B‑Vibe and their products
I’ve heard plenty of sex educators say, “Everyone has a butt!” And it’s rad to see B‑Vibe really own butt stuff as the great equalizer, potentially pleasurable for people of any gender. That’s important when anal play is something that can bring sexual satisfaction to all parties involved.
What intrigues me about B‑Vibe is that they’ve built their whole brand around butt toys. These range from dilators to vibrating beads, to fancy plugs that “lick” your butthole, to the weighted Snug Plugs. B‑Vibe is not a dildo maker that only has some butt plugs on the side as an afterthought.
Durable packaging and helpful guide
In addition to thoughtfully designed products, B‑vibe’s packaging and artwork are all clean, contemporary, and friendly— nothing raunchy or objectifying. Even the educational materials feel fun, with bright colors and a minimalist vibe that gets the idea across without being clinical.
The box that my Snug Plug 3 came in is very durable, with a plastic “window” that’s nice and thick and easy to open. Though you can use the box for long-term storage, all Snug Plugs come with a small zippered pouch. There’s also a Snug Plug user guide enclosed and a guide to anal play in general.
First impressions: materials, shape, and feel
The Snug Plug itself is velvety-smooth and matte with some drag— not quite buttery or silky. There’s a narrow T‑shaped base that rests comfortably between the cheeks (TO HELL WITH ROUND BASES). Its slender silicone neck is super flexible, while the torpedo-shaped bulb is rigid.
Inside the plug and under the silicone, the ABS plastic encases two metal balls. There’s room for the weighted balls to move around. That means that the Snug Plug jiggles. HELL YES. But I’m also mildly offended that nobody told me about this.
The Snug Plug 3 weighs 130 g, which is about 6.35 oz. It certainly weighs more than a full silicone plug but doesn’t come close to the njoy Pure Plug Large’s 310 g (or 11oz). So it’s just really odd that nobody mentions that the weights move. That would have been a major selling point for me.
But there’s something else about this butt plug that’s even harder to ignore…
The Snug Plug is way bigger than I expected!
I’m no stranger to butt stuff; I’ve taken toys 1.75″ wide up my butt, such as the big end of the njoy Eleven and the bigger version of Blush’s Naughty Candy Heart plug. But I’m happy I didn’t try the (also 1.75″ wide) Snug Plug 4.
It’s so easy to forget that butt plugs are generally measured where they’re the widest. With a tapered 1.5″ butt plug, the bulb starts relatively slender and gradually ramps up to the max width. With the 1.5″ wide Snug Plug, the max girth practically is the average.
If you were to cut both toys into round slices, most of the Snug Plug’s slices would be more substantial. Luckily, the Snug Plug 3 ended up being a good fit for me!
Inserting and wearing the Snug Plug 3
Please don’t throw away the Snug Plug’s user guide without reading it. Usually, I’d think instructions are for suckers, but this booklet is exceptionally detailed and helpful.
For one, it says not just to lube up the plug and slide it in. And I agree with this advice. The silicone has some drag, and the Snug Plug’s girth is very abrupt. At the very least warm up with a lubed finger or two. And even then, I probably wouldn’t use the Snug Plug 3 without a squishier or more tapered plug first.
Once the plug is in, it’s very comfortable. Like the njoy Pure Plug, it stays put throughout pretty much anything. That’s thanks to the big difference between the bulb (1.5″) and neck’s (1 cm) width. The long neck does hang out a bit, but it’s flexible, bending when you sit down or move around.
What makes the Snug Plug 3 feel so good?
Now on to the fun part!
When I move, so do the metal weights inside against their hard plastic shell. I can’t feel the subtle jiggle of kegel balls inside my vagina— it’s much more responsive to deep pressure. But my sphincter is very sensitive to the light tapping when I walk, turn in bed, climb stairs, or have vaginal intercourse while wearing the plug.
And it doesn’t have a distinct forward tilt that presses against my G‑spot. But the Snug Plug 3 does fit snugly against the inside of my anal canal. And it rests more deeply inside than other plugs do. When I clench, the long torpedo shape slides upwards, giving me the feeling of a dick sliding in. But just internally, without much of a stretch at the sphincter.
Tl;dr it’s not just about how much the Snug Plug 3 weighs! The barrel’s sliding gives me deep internal pressure, while the weights’ movements subtly play with the entrance.
Overall verdict on the B‑Vibe Snug Plug 3
That would have been a mistake, though. You see, the smaller and lighter Snug Plug 2’s weights would have been way less noticeable. And not anywhere near as fun. If I were to go any narrower for a weighted butt plug, I’d probably stick with a small or medium njoy Pure Plug.
Read the user guide. Take your time with putting this butt plug in. While I don’t advocate going bigger than you’re ready for, I think the size 3 Snug Plug was the right choice for me and well worth the extra warm-up time.
Once the Snug Plug is past both sphincters, that’s when the fun begins. It feels like having anal sex, but entirely discreet and hands-free. If you’re like me, you’ll want to run around and work out, both regarding exercising your pelvic floor muscles and just moving your body in general.
In my hierarchy of awesome sex toys, B‑Vibe Snug Plug 3 is slightly below my njoy Pure Plug Large. Both butt plugs are amazing in entirely different ways once inserted, but my ass accepts the njoy Pure Plug’s slick steel surface way more easily. If you’re comfortable with the size, though, the B‑Vibe Snug Plug 3 weighted silicone plug brings something refreshing to the table.
