If you’re interested in things like strap on play or coerced bi, then anal training is an absolute must! And one of the most important parts of anal training is making sure you have the proper equipment with which to do the job.
Entire books could be written on this subject, due to the many and varied types of anal play toys out there. But this post is going to be about the different types of lube, their pros and cons, and the best scenarios in which to use them. I hope you find it helpful. I spent quite a few years learning all this about the various kinds of lube, and I’m going to do my best to condense it down into a useful post for everyone who’s interested in anal training!
Lube Is The Most Vital Part Of Anal Training
If you’ve never tried anal play before, you may not think too much of the lubrication aspect of it. But if you have tried it, then you know as well as I do that lube is extremely important. This is especially true if you’ve had an uncomfortable experience with anal training in the past. If you ever forget the lube one time, you’ll never do it again!
In my opinion, anal play safety and the health of one’s submissive are are of the utmost importance. Nothing else trumps those two things, not even the Domme’s pleasure. So that’s why I always use lube and plenty of it!
Now, let’s discuss the different kinds of lube and their functions when it comes to anal training.
Water-Based Lube Is The Most Common
The most common type of lube used by most people (and what you’ll generally find at the pharmacy or wherever you buy your lube in person) is water-based lube. This includes brands like KY Jelly, Astroglide, and the many knock-offs of those two. The best thing about water-based lube is the fact that it’s easy to get your hands on. It’s also safe to use with condoms and toys made of all kinds of materials.
Some of the drawbacks of water-based lube become evident once you start using it, though. Some people (yours truly, for example) can be allergic to some of the additives in it. Your body also tends to quickly soak up water-based lube, which means, for anal training purposes, that you’ll have to stop and reapply it regularly. This can be quite annoying if you’re wanting to do anal play for a longer period of time.
That leads me to the next type of lube, which is oil-based lube.
Oil-Based Lube Is Best For Anal Play (With A Few Conditions)
In my opinion, oil-based lube is absolutely the best, hands-down, for anal masturbation and training. Oil-based lube can be specially-formulated lubricants that you can buy (I am a fan of the brand Boy Butter), or it can be things like Crisco. A note of warning here about that, though: If you’re using household oils, you should always, always, always make sure they’re not toxic. Crisco, being a food item, is not. Other things, however, could be, so please exercise extreme caution if you’re not purchasing something that was meant to be used as lube.
As I said, it is, in my opinion, best for anal masturbation. Oil-based lubes are, obviously, oils, so they sit on top of the skin, rather than soaking into it like water-based lubes do. That means you don’t have to continuously reapply them. They also tend to be more slippery than water-based lubes, allowing your fingers or your toys to slide inside you more easily. It can also be used with toys made of any type of material, the same as water-based lube can.
But there are drawbacks to everything, and oil-based lube is no exception. It cannot be used with condoms because it’ll create tiny holes in the condom (which, of course, defeats the whole purpose of a condom). It also should not be used vaginally, as it can cause infections there.
However, all things considered, I think oil-based lube really does work best for anal play, as long as you’re not in a situation where you need to use a condom. But if you are? Well, that’s what silicone lube is for!
Silicone-Based Lube Is An Excellent Compromise
Silicone lube is the great compromise between water- and oil-based lubes, in my opinion. Like oil-based lube, it sits on top of the skin and doesn’t soak into it. This means you won’t have to apply it often. Silicone is also hypoallergenic, which is great for people who have sensitivies to other types of lube. It’s fine for use with condoms, and it can also be used vaginally.
There are only a couple of cons when it comes to silicone-based lube. The first one is that it can’t be used with silicone toys. I used to think this was a silly warning, until I made the mistake of doing it once. Silicone-based lube will, when used with silicone toys, create a weird, sticky mess on your silicone toy, and you’ll be lucky if you can get it off. There’s something about the chemistry of the toys and the lube that makes an awful, glue-like substance that is definitely not conducive to anal training!
The other drawback of silicone lube is that you have to be careful of what you’re buying. Many lubes that are advertised as silicone lubes are just water-based lubes with a drop or two of silicone in them. This means that you’ll have all the drawbacks of water-based lubes and none of the benefits of silicone lubes. What you’ll want to do when trying to buy silicone lube is plenty of research! Find the brands with the highest percentage of silicone in them. These are the ones that will serve you best.
Find The Right Lube For Your Anal Play Adventure
Now that I have given you all this information, what should you do with it? Well, I think you should sit down and consider for a moment which will work best for you with your particular anal training needs. Once you’ve done that, you can purchase what you need and use it! And if you can’t decide which one will work best, why not experiment? Try at least one of all the different types of lube to see which one serves you best.
