What is an anal lubricant?

Among the various lubricants available, there is a category specially designed for anal intercourse, or at least recommended for anal pleasure. This lube is generally thicker in texture, and its composition is designed not to dry out too quickly, so that the anus remains perpetually lubricated throughout the sexual act.

Why is anal lubricant necessary?

The anus, unlike the vagina, is not an orifice capable of lubricating itself naturally. Saliva, whatever the practice, is never advisable, since not only does it dry out particularly quickly, it is also a carrier of many bacteria, and the anal flora is very fragile. To compensate for its natural dryness, anal lubricant is your best ally. The aim is to facilitate penetration and enhance the sensations experienced, while avoiding any pain associated with anal practices. In fact, most pain is due to poor lubrication of this area: anal lubricant is therefore not only necessary, but essential.

What's the difference between anal and conventional lubricants?

At first glance, water- or silicone-based anal lubricants might appear to be the same as those used for vaginal intercourse. From a technical point of view, of course, a lubricant plays the same role, whatever its composition. A classic lube could then be used for vaginal or anal penetration, or even masturbation. However, anal lubricant differs slightly in its composition, to offer a texture and specific features for better hygiene, greater comfort and, of course, more pleasure during the sexual act. And above all, it should last longer!

For example, some have anaesthetic properties to reduce pain during penetration: this is particularly useful for beginners. Others offer a cooling, warming or toning effect to prolong lovemaking and prolong pleasure by delaying ejaculation, although they do not replace stimulating products. Others are designed for sex toys or fisting. Last but not least, some of our products contain a higher proportion of antibacterial agents. They are therefore specially designed for anal pleasure and, by extension, are not recommended for vaginal penetration.

How to choose your anal lubricant

Lubricant, like condoms, is a matter of taste. Its choice varies according to practice and desired effects. But as a general rule, a good anal lubricant won't stick, offers long-lasting action and leaves no residue. It can have a neutral scent or, on the contrary, a fragrant one, to combine the useful with the pleasurable, for example as part of a massage followed by sodomy. Depending on individual sensitivities, a water-based or silicone-based lubricant may be more or less advisable. But above all, it's the type of penetration that will determine your choice of anal lubricant and your experience in this field. For the first few times, we advise you to choose a silicone-based lubricant, as its lubricating power is five times greater than that of a water-based anal lubricant. On the other hand, the latter may suffice for people who are used to it and have become more or less desensitized over time, and who don't need a lot of lubrication to get pleasure.

Is there an anal lubricant that reduces the risk of STIs?

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can be contracted through sexual contact, but also by mixing the blood of an infected individual with the mucous membranes of a healthy person. Even if anal lubricant doesn't have super powers against STIs, a good lube designed for such intercourse can help reduce the risks. In fact, if a lubricant is effective and lasts longer, you avoid the micro-cuts associated with penetration that is sometimes too dry. In this respect, silicone-based lubricants are highly recommended.

How do I use anal lubricant?

There's no need to be ashamed of researching the use of anal lubricant. On the contrary, it's better to be sure of what you're doing than to find yourself in front of an intimate gel with unanswered questions.

How much anal lubricant to apply

If you're experimenting solo, this is a good time to try it out on yourself and see how much you like. But in all logic: the slicker, the better. As the potential pain is linked to insufficient anal lubricant, don't skimp on quantity and assume that this will only make your experience better. Be careful, however, with the type of lubricant you use, as a silicone-based lube may only require a dab, whereas chances are you'll be reapplying that amount of water-based lube every five minutes. As for the rest, it all depends on your partner and the practice: the amount of anal lube will be much greater for a fist than for sodomy.

The right gestures to adopt before anal intercourse

The practice of anal sex can be scary, but once you've had a taste of anal pleasure, it's hard to give it up. Often, those who are reluctant are worried about the potential pain, or refuse to repeat the experience because of a bad memory due to poor preparation. However, when it's done properly and the preliminaries are respected, there's no reason to go backwards. If you're just starting out, a few gestures can help you approach anal sex with confidence.

If you're approaching the subject for the first time, planning a new partner, a swinger's party or even a long fetish and BDSM session, it's advisable to take a few hygienic precautions. For example, avoid heavy meals the night before or before intercourse. If you want to be totally relaxed about it, you can do an enema. This way, you'll feel more comfortable about anal intercourse and won't have to worry about the little mishaps that can happen to anyone.

Preparing for anal intercourse

To begin with, prepare the atmosphere: it's important to feel in a climate that invites well-being and relaxation. If you're a couple, offer your partner a massage, starting with the back and gradually moving down to the kidneys, buttocks and gluteal cleft. You can even use anal lubricant, which doubles asmassage oil!

You can also use poppers to help dilate the anus if foreplay isn't enough. In the meantime, start with classic methods such as anilingus, which works very well to put the other person at ease. Caress this area without restraint, touch it, kiss it... And above all, communicate! It's important to ask about the other person's state of mind and potential stress at all times: before, during and after. Of course, for reasons of hygiene, it's imperative that the anus and anything else that comes into contact with it are perfectly clean.

When your partner feels ready, apply anal lubricant to your little finger and her anus, then gently insert a phalanx, making sure your fingernails are short and snag-free. Promote arousal by using your other hand while starting to make small, slow in-and-out movements. Only then, if you want to move up a gear, can you use an anal plug, always abundantly lubricated. Whether you use a finger, a sextoy or your penis: never force your way in, or you risk injuring your partner. The anal area tears easily, so it's important to take it one step at a time. Preliminaries are not only essential, they're also part of the pleasure that will bring you both to orgasm.

What anal lubricant should I use?

Every anal lubricant has its own combination to satisfy you. Depending on your experience, your desires, the effect you're looking for and the type of practice you're planning, your choice of product may differ.

For anal sex

For those who are used to anal sex, a water-based anal lubricant may suffice, as long as you use a sufficient quantity and don't hesitate to add more afterwards. On the other hand, for beginners or first-time users, we recommend a silicone-based anal lubricant. If you're unsure, always choose a lube with superior, long-lasting slipperiness, to avoid the slightest injury and make intercourse more pleasant for both partners.

For the fist

When it comes to fisting, there's no alternative: a special anal fist lubricant is highly recommended to ensure that everything goes smoothly. Some are water-based, others silicone-based, to suit individual sensitivities. They come in intimate gel tubes, in powder to be mixed with water, or in jars. Lubricating powders can be used to produce large quantities while taking up little space: ideal for those who regularly engage in fisting and don't like to skimp on resources. Lube in a jar, on the other hand, is a thick, smooth cream. In all cases, it is of course advisable to use disposable latex gloves for this BDSM practice.

For pegging

Pegging involves the penetration of a partner by a person with a vagina, for example using a dildo harness. This involves using sex toys and dildos designed for anal pleasure. If your accessory is made of plastic or metal, then you can use a silicone-based anal lubricant. However, if it's made of silicone, you'll need to choose a water-based lube, as silicone could damage your toy to the point where it disintegrates inside your partner. Always check first that your lubricant and sextoy are compatible.
