Sorry to liken anal sex to food, but if it were a sandwich, then you and your partner would be the slices of bread and lube would be the good stuff inside. Because anal sex without lube would be not only dry, but also pointless. In fact, unlike a sad sammie, lubeless anal sex can actually be dangerous. The friction can cause actual microtears to the skin and anus, leading to infection. No, thanks. So when starting with anal play, the wetter, the better.
If you know my blog you know how much I talk about using water-based lube and I always recommend my favorite lube in most of my articles, I am slightly obsessed with my readers being well lubricated and I know the only way I can do that is if they know the importance of lubrication and the benefits of using it, especially during anal play. However, today we are talking about anal lube. It can be used for any types of sex with any type of sex toy but it is slightly thicker so it is also ideal for anal play. I use it for both vaginal and anal play but the consistency works really well with anal play and is one of the best anal lubes I have ever used. This anal lube is made from botanical extracts and it is actually aloe-based so you can imagine just how soft and wonderful this anal lube is and great it feels to apply. However, it can also be used for vaginal play, on sex toys and with condoms so it is a pretty versatile lube. It looks more like a moisturizer than a lubricant, which is always a good thing.
Skip navigation! Story from Sex. Cory Stieg. Using a beauty product down to the last drop and having an "empty," can be a moment of pride and a sign of a quality product. But if you reach for your favorite bottle of lube in the middle of sex and it's empty, that's just inconvenient.
Vaseline, or petroleum jelly, is an oil based ointment that people can use to moisturize and soften dry skin. Although Vaseline may work as a sexual lubricant, it can damage latex condoms and increase the risk of infection and unintended pregnancy. It is better to use a water or glycol based lubricant. People might want to use Vaseline as a sexual lubricant because it has a soft and smooth texture.
