What’s the best lube for anal? This is one of the most heavily searched sex questions. Why? Sex is everywhere in mainstream media from movies to television, but how often do we see booty play going down on the big screen? And when it does, do we ever see someone reaching in the nightstand for some lube? Not really. So maybe it’s still seen as a bit taboo, but that shouldn’t stop you from doing it right!
So what makes choosing anal lube different than vaginal lube? First of all it has to do with our anatomy; the anus is much less flexible than the vagina and it also doesn’t have the ability to produce natural lubricant on its own. You’re going to want to look for something thick and long lasting.
Since your booty isn’t going to be producing its own lubrication, you’re going to want something long lasting - otherwise you’ll definitely need to reapply. And thickness equals extra comfort - the walls of the anus have much thinner tissue that the vagina so some extra protection is key.
When searching for something long lasting, the first things that comes to mind is silicone. Sliquid Silver is adequately named because that’s just what it feels like - you've found a night stand treasure. A few drops go a long way and even though it has a slick oily feel, it’s still easy to clean up. All Sliquid products are 100% vegan and glycerin and paraben free, so they’re totally safe for your body!
We know toys are a big part of booty play, so silicone isn’t always going to be ideal, that’s why water based lubes crafted for anal exist too!
Sutil Rich was made for anal and is definitely one of our favorites. It’s a thick water based lube made to last like a silicone, so it’s compatible with all your fave vibes and plugs - truly the best of both worlds. Sutil also uses plant sourced hyaluronic acid which is incredibly hydrating and increases skin elasticity.
Sliquid Sassy is deemed a “booty gel” - think of a thicker version of Sliquid’s water based H2O lube. Whereas Sliquid H2O and Sea are certainly moisturizing - they tend to run, but sassy stays put and provides an almost protective layer and some cushion.
Choosing an anal lube can take some time because everybody’s body is different, but it's SO worth it to find the perfect fit! If you are still on the fence about the best anal lubricant for you, pop by for a visit and we can walk you through them all in person!
