When considering anal sex, the philosophy is simple: the more lube, the better. The reason is that the anus and rectum aren’t naturally self-lubricating meaning that these areas need all the help they can get during anal play. Fortunately, the best anal sex lubes provide the extra cushion required for the pushing, delivering the extra slickness and long-lasting lubricant needed to make anal stimulation feel fantastic.
When it comes to lubes for anal, the options are endless, silicone to hybrid, oil, or water-based lubricants. Because silicone is hypoallergenic, has a higher viscosity (meaning more slippery), and helps minimize heat and friction, it’s usually the preferred lube for anal sex.
