Anal Sex and Anal Lubricants

April 12, 2011 by moi 

When it comes to anal sex it doesn’t matter how experienced you are, anal lubricants are imperative as the anus and rectum do not naturally produce their own lubrication consequently anal sex minus an anal lubricant would be an especially stinging experience. Anal lubes help the participant to have more enjoyable anal intercourse.

Can anyone partake in anal sex?

A common misunderstanding surrounding anal sex is that it is solely a pursuit for homosexual men. This is not correct. A considerable number of straight couples also get satisfaction from anal sex. Water-based anal lubricants and good quality condoms help to ease the penis into the anal passageway more comfortably. Nonetheless, it is vital that anal intercourse is taken slowly as the lining of the rectum is fragile and can easily be harmed by energetic thrusting. This is particularly the case if the ‘receiving’ partner is not totally relaxed. Whatever the sexuality of the partners, prior to taking part in anal sex it is necessary to make sure that your partner is one hundred per cent happy with it. If one partner does not take pleasure from anal intercourse, it is better to stick to sex that both partners are happy with.

Are there different kinds of anal lubricants on the market?

Anal lubes are not just available in the form of gels; coming either partially scented or odourless, anal lubes are also available in a range of sprays and creams. Anal lubes are different from everyday sexual lubricants as they are especially designed to be used with condoms, and aim to relax the muscles surrounding the anal area without the loss of any sexual sensations thereby allowing for easier penetration. Anal lubes are now designed with the wants of men and women in mind, and can also be employed with the use of anal sex toys.

Why use a condom for anal sex?

It is advisable to always use a condom when participating in anal intercourse. Not only does this substantially reduce the chance of contracting a sexually transmitted infection or STI, but it also decreases the risk of pregnancy. A woman can still get pregnant from anal sex although the chance of this is far lower than from vaginal sex. If a condom is not used, semen could easily seep out of the anus and into the vaginal passage.

The most important thing to remember where pleasurable anal sex is concerned is choosing a good quality anal lubricant.
