Tristan and Tristan 2, by Vixen Creations, is a fantastic silicone butt plug for stretching your ass and learning to relax into the sensations of anal sex.
Both plugs are well engineered to do two things: slide comfortably into place, and help stretch your ass once in place. And they do those things incredibly well.
The bulbed shape provides ample stimulation to the prostate, while the thick neck helps you learn to relax around thicker objects (at the cost of the plug popping out of place at times).
A fantastic intermediate/advanced trainer plug!

An amazing silicone butt plug
Vixen is known for some of the best silicone in the business – their realistic dildo line VixSkin is very high quality and incredibly realistic.
While the Tristan plugs aren’t made of their VixSkin material, they are made of some very high quality silicone. It’s a bit firmer as far as silicone goes, but has plenty of give to help you take in these plugs comfortably.
Tristan 1 and 2 both have a lot of other great features too. Both plugs are available in either solid silicone, or with a hollow base and a bullet vibe. Although these plugs feel so good the bullet vibe may be too much stimulation, if such a thing exists.
If you opt for no bullet vibe, you can always use something like a magic wand externally on the plug, something we’re huge fans of.
These thick butt plugs also have a T-base design to ensure the plugs sit comfortably between your cheeks. As far as T-bases go they are a little bulky, so it may be a little cumbersome if you’re on the petite side. However the silicone is soft enough that shouldn’t be much of a problem.
Designed for a good, long anal stretch
Tristan 1 is what we’d consider an intermediate-sized butt plug as it very quickly ramps up to the widest point of 1.5 inches. The bulbuous shape also doesn’t help you warm up too much, so you should definitely have some anal experience before trying these plugs.
Once inside, the neck of Tristan 1 is roughly 1 inch, which is much thicker than your traditional butt plug. This added thickness is where the plug shines, as this can help you relax and stretch your ass a bit to get used to the sensations of anal sex. The silicone is soft enough that the stretching isn’t uncomfortable at all.
Tristan 2 is even more aggressive, as it’s basically the exact same shape just bigger. Tristan 2 immediately hits you with the widest girth – roughly 2.05 inches at the widest point of the bulbed head.
But once you’re past that, the neck of the toy is 1.65 inches of pure girth. This provides for unique sensation play and really ‘fills you up’ once inside. And the Tristan 2’s length of 3.75 inches should be more than enough to really hit your p-spot.
One downside of these thick necks is that less experienced users may find the plug pops out of place unexpectedly, especially if you accidentally clench too hard. Given that we’re not sure we’d recommend these plugs for a day out and about, but they are fine for extended anal training sessions at home.
See what others are saying about Tristan
While not the most reviewed toy online, it’s quality over quantity. Pretty much every review is either 4 or 5 stars, with the only points being taken off by beginners who weren’t quite ready for the size.
Here’s a glowing review from a more experienced user:
How do I clean my Tristan plugs?
The smooth silicone surfaces are extremely easy to clean. Like any other silicone toy, warm soapy water for 30 seconds, working the soap over all the surfaces should be plenty.
Do I have to use the bullet vibe?
Nope, you can order the toy with or without the bullet vibe. If you opt out of the vibe, your toy will be solid silicone, whereas the plugs with the vibe have a hollowed-out hole to fit the bullet.
If you opt for the solid Tristan plugs, you can always use an external vibrator on it, which feels amazing.
How big are these plugs? How experienced do I need to be?
As mentioned above, we want to stress – this is not a beginner’s butt plug. Tristan 1 is a solidly intermediate-level toy, while Tristan 2 is an intermediate-advanced toy with a max girth of over 2 inches. That may not sound like much, but it is when we’re talking about anal sex!
It’s important to use plenty of lube to help get the plugs in, but the thickness will probably de-lube the toys as they slide in. So be sure to re-apply if you take the toy out and re-insert.
