Lubrication

Something important to know about butts is that they’re not self-lubricating. This means you need lots of lubrication to make pegging work. Depending on what your toy is made of, you can use different types of lube.

Water-based lube is the best lube for toys, because it doesn’t degrade silicone or jelly and it’s the easiest to wash off. It’s also condom-friendly, which is good if you’re using condoms to keep your toy clean or if you want to use it on multiple partners without washing in between.

Many people prefer silicone lube for anal sex, because it’s more slippery-feeling and lasts longer. Silicone lube works with certain types of toys, but it degrades silicone and jelly, and it’s not condom-friendly. Oil-based lube degrades most toys, including those made with jelly, plastic, and silicone, so don’t use it with your new cock.

Anal sex is becoming more common between gay and heterosexual couples, as well as between women and men to men through pegging. However, not all those who decide to practice anal sex know how to do it or take the most appropriate measures to have an anal sex without pain with proper lubrication.

That’s what lubricants for anal sex are for. Today we tell you which are the best and how to use them.

Choose the best lubricant for anal sex

It is important that you choose a suitable lubricant for anal sex, since the objective when using an anal lubricant is to help reduce the pain in the penetration and dilate the anus. Therefore, any lubricant is not useful, but a specific one for anal sex that helps you to improve the sexual experience.

Also, you must take into account if the anal lubricant is compatible with condoms and does not have chemical elements that could damage it. As you know, it is important to use condoms when having anal sex to avoid the spread of sexually transmitted diseases or to extend the transmission of bacteria.

Most of the anal lubricants sold in the market are made with silicone base, since this material helps a better penetration of the penis, but you can also find some lubricants for anal sex made with water base, if they seem more pleasant to you (they have a more natural texture) or you are allergic to silicone.

However, the use of lubricants with oily bases, massage oils or Vaseline is not recommended to enjoy anal sex, as they can irritate and favor the appearance of infections.

How to use a lubricant for anal sex

When using a lubricant for anal sex you should consider the following recommendations:

Use a significant amount of lubricant, since unlike the vagina, the anus does not have a natural lubrication. Therefore, you must always be very generous with anal lubricant.

Hygiene is essential when anal sex is practiced. If you have touched your partner in the anus with the lubricant it is important that you wash your hand before touching any other part of your partner’s body, such as the vaginal area or the mouth, as you could contaminate it with bacteria and cause an infection important in your body.

Before penetration, the anus should be stimulated just as the clitoris or erogenous zones of the body are stimulated to have greater arousal and allow pleasure. Massage for a long time the outer area of the anus introduces some fingers smeared with lubricant and little by little allows your partner to feel comfortable until it tells you that it is time to facilitate penetration.

In addition to spreading the lubricant around the anus you can also apply it on the condom (in the penis) to favor a better penetration.

Do not practice anal sex if you are pregnant, not even with lubricant since during pregnancy they are like hemorrhoids problems and could aggravate them. The same happens in case you have problems with hemorrhoids.
