When you’re indulging in a spot of anal sex or masturbation with anal play, anal lube should never be left out of your fun and games.

Anal lubricant differs from regular lube as the consistency is much thicker which helps to protect the sensitive skin of the anus. It's not just a safety issue for the health of your sensitive anal tract, it's also a pleasure thing.

Almost all sex is enhanced with a good slick of lube and by making sure that there will definitely be no harsh friction, you'll enjoy your anal sex experience much more.

Which is the Best Anal Lube?

Just like regular sexual lubes, anal lube comes in a variety of types. Choosing the right anal lube depends on what you're doing and which toys you're using. Scroll through Lovehoney's top anal lube suggestions.
