The Best Anal Lubes for Beginners
For anyone wanting to engage in anal sex or plays, anal lubes are must-have to be comfortable and smooth.
Today’s post seeks to introduce different types of anal lubes to you and which one would be most suitable.
- Water-Based Lubes
This is one of the most common types of lubes, widely available at a low cost in most stores. Not only do water-based lubes offer comfort and slickness, but the are also easy to wash off.
However, it also dries up easily and may cause stickiness a while after the first application of the lube. Thus, this makes it unsuitable for anal sex as it requires lubes that are longer-lasting.
- Oil-Based Lubes
Oil-based lubes are known for how slippery they are and do not require much reapplication. Hence, these lubes might just be the best option for anal sex.
However, one key drawback of oil-based lubes is that they break down latex. Because condoms are predominantly made out of latex, these lubes become unsafe to use together with them. Furthermore, oil-based lubes are also known to cause irritation, including your vagina or anus.
Thus, although oil-based lube comes close, it isn’t the best choice for anal sex.
- Silicone-Based Lubes
For silicone-based lubes, not only do they last longer than water-based lubes, but they also do not cause irritation like oil-based lubes do. In addition, silicone-based lubes are much slicker and slippery than water-based lubes, making constant reapplication unnecessary.
However, there are two things to note about silicone-based lubes: firstly, they require soap and a wash to properly come off and, secondly, they are not to be used together with silicone-based sex toys (certain properties in the lubes will break down the materials of the toys).
Silicone-based lubes are your best bet for anal sex as beginners as it has the least disadvantages whilst catering to your needs in the context of anal plays.
