Lubricants for anal sex

Glide your way to pleasure with these top lubes


Are you planning your first anal adventure, but you’re uncertain about which lube will make the experience the most smooth and enjoyable? Perhaps you are an seasoned anal fan and want to add some new lube that can be used for oral warm up as well as the main event?

No matter the reason, anal play can be orgasmic! Lube is what is needed to reduce friction in all kinds of sex and sex is better with lube, but when it comes to anal sex, lube is definitely recommended.

Why is lube important in anal sex?

The anus doesn’t produce any natural form of lubrication when you are aroused, this can cause friction and, in worst case scenarios, tearing and infection. Essentially, anal sex without lubricant is probably not something you want to experience, especially if you’re a first timer.

Read on as we smooth over questions about our range of lubricants for anal sex.

Keep it clean with water-based Feel Pleasure Gel

Anal sex can get messy. Because water doesn't stain sheets, water-based lubes are usually much less messy than other types.

The beauty of a water-based gel lube is that it is designed for those of you who have worries about the post-anal clean up. Sure, the anal sex itself may still be a little messy, but you won’t have to worry about the lube itself causing any staining on your duvet.

Our Water Based Pleasure Lube is light and smooth and washes off easily after use. The water-soluble formula is non-staining, non-greasy and gentle on your body. It also happens to be compatible with condoms, making it clean, easy to use and perfect for those looking to try anal sex.
