My boyfriend and I have just started prostate play on him, and I know that anal lube is super important, because, unlike a vagina, an ass does not get wet when it is excited! So this little relaxing gel was sent discreetly to my house and I love it!
We always start anal play off with a very thorough shower (for hygiene!) and some rimming to get him ready, which we both really enjoy. Once he's prepped, this lube goes on the toy (or finger) that will be penetrating him.
Since we're complete newbies to anal, neither of us has much of a frame of reference for this versus other lubes, but my boyfriend seems to feel that this is a nice cushy and thick lube and I do notice that he feels less "tight" when we use it.
The lube itself does not numb or cause any tingling sensations, but it has a strong scent of cloves, which makes me think of clove cigarettes. It also has a strong clove taste if you get any in your mouth, and while it probably isn't meant to be eaten, the flavor isn't completely off-putting.
All in all, this is a great lube for anal play, and you only need to use a little to get your partner nice and slippery and relaxed. Worth it! 5/5 stars
