Anal Sex Lubricants: Optimize Your Back Door Experience

Anal Sex Lubricants: Optimize Your Back Door Experience

4 minute read

Anal sex was once considered taboo. But more and more couples are now beginning to open up and explore the joys of anal sex.

Anal sex can be exciting and pleasurable if done the right way. Knowing how to approach it and with the right tools is key to having a positive and enjoyable experience.

Both you and your partner must be physically and mentally comfortable with anal sex.

This article will help you understand the basics of anal sex and how anal sex lubricants can enhance your experience.

Are personal lubricants necessary?

Many couples don't realize that the anus does not self-lubricate like the vagina does.

Anal penetration without using an anal lubricant can be very painful and lead to tearing or, even worse, infection.

Such an experience could lead a couple to never try anal sex again. If you don't want the back door closed for good, make sure you keep the lube handy. Lubricant will help make penetration more comfortable. We recommend Pjur Backdoor Relaxing Glide.

The trick is to take it slow.

What kind of personal lubricants should you use?

Lubricant manufacturers have come up with anal lubricants specifically designed to reduce discomfort and pain during anal sex.

Anal lubricants may contain Benzocaine, an anesthetic to numb the anus so that there is no pain or discomfort during penetration.

Please be aware that you may be causing damage to your sensitive areas and not knowing it. We generally do not recommend numbing this area for that particular reason.

A silicone-based lubricant (like from the Fuck Water brand) is perfect for anal penetration because it creates a slick environment, doesn't dry out, and there is no need for reapplication. Water-based lubricants are absorbed by the skin, unlike silicone-based lubricants.

Don't forget to use protection!

Like vaginal intercourse, it is important to protect yourself against STDs when having anal sex.

If you are not a committed couple that gets tested regularly, using a condom during anal sex would be an excellent idea.

It is not sanitary or safe to have vaginal sex and then change to anal sex without cleaning your genitals thoroughly. Clean your genitals before switching.

If you don't take the time to clean your genitals, it can lead to infection. The easiest way to avoid this hassle is to wear a condom and change it each time you decide to change your penetration method.

Another important reason you should wear a condom is that some anal lubricants contain Benzocaine, an anesthetic.

If the penis is not shielded from this lubricant, it will cause it to become numb and will not be functional for sexual intercourse.

Any first steps?

If this is your first time, it would be a good idea to start with anal sex toys before you actually try penetrating.

Anal sex toys sequentially introduce you to anal penetration so you can enjoy it at your own pace.

Butt Plugs and Anal Beads are good sex toys for anal sex beginners to experiment with.

Anal beads are great because the beads gradually increase in size so you can get acclimated over time.

Butt plugs should be purchased as a kit to work your way from small to larger plugs.

If you are purchasing a single butt plug, look for beginner butt plugs that are specifically small enough and meant for trying it for the first time.

You can also experience a glass butt plug's cooling properties that warm over time to match your body temperature.

Anal vibrators and prostate massagers are also worthy sex toys to invest in if you are into anal sex.
