Our Favorite Anal Lubes

3

by thepleasurechest

Anal sex without lube?! It’s almost too frightening a thought to say out loud, but here at The Pleasure Chest we talk people down from that lubeless ledge on a daily basis. We’re kind of like behind-the-scenes heroes, if you think about it. When it comes to ass play, no amount of lube is too much.

These are a few tips on the lubes we like best for butt sex.

Pjur Bodyglide

Silicone lube is a fanny-fucking favorite because it coats the ass with its extreme slickness and lasts pretty much until you’re done. The main drawback of this type of lube is the fact that cleanup isn’t as easy and it may stain your sheets, but hey, that’s what mutual showers and all those old towels you refuse to throw away “in case you need them” are for.

One brand that is loved by the boys who come by the store is Gun Oil because it’s ultra-slick and has aloe and vitamin E to soothe the skin. Incidentally, the makers of this brand also make Pink silicone lube, which is the same lovely formula packaged in a top-of-nightstand friendly glass bottle. Use this for a night of hot, passionate anal sex, then smooth over rough knees and elbows and wake up with skin like silk!

The silicone lube everyone can agree on is Pjur Bodyglide. Its ultra-concentrated blend of the highest quality silicone and nothing else means it lasts longer than any of the other silicone lubes out there and is a much better bet in case you want to try it for vaginal sex as well.

Water-based lubes can’t be counted out of the rump race, however. A lot of people prefer to use water-based lube even for anal sex because of the easy cleanup, versatility, and thicker formulas that provide a cushion for the anus.

A long-time love of ours for anal sex is Maximus lube. It is an extremely thick gel formula that stays surprisingly slick and comes in a pump bottle for extra convenience. The one thing we often advise when using this lubricant is to make sure you handle your oral business before you lube up, because the taste is quite bitter.

Sliquid Organics Gel

Sliquid Sassy is a glycerin-free water-based gel lube specifically designed for the booty. We love this one because it can easily be used vaginally or with toys so there’s no need to have ten different lubes on hand. Sliquid Organics Gel is Sassy’s all-natural cousin and works fabulously for those who prefer an organic approach.

A note on oil-based lubes: Look, we know no matter how many times we say there are better alternatives out there, a lot of people are still going to gravitate toward oil. If you must, we like to suggest naturally-derived Stroke 29, which is not condom-safe, but does feel great and really slick yet non-greasy. Again, we want to remind you that oil-based lubes are not condom-safe with very few exceptions, such as Snake Oil. It may not be conveniently located in the kitchen cabinet, but it sure beats contracting an STI or farting Crisco for a week.
