Recommended Products For Enhancing Anal Play

Silicone Lubricants

Silicone lubricants are the longest lasting out of all lubes. This is important because the anal canal is not self-lubricating, so using plenty of lube is a crucal step in engaging in any type of anal activity. Silicone lubes do not need to be re-applied frequently and will keep things pleasurably slick. Please note to never use silicone lubricants with silicone toys, as it can damage your toys and cause the material to deteriorate.

When it comes to anal play of any kind, you need a super-slick anal lubricant for comfortable, enjoyable penetration. Anal lubricants can be silicone or water-based, and are usually thicker than traditional lubes. Depending on the formula, most can be non-staining, toy safe, and ultra long-lasting!

Lube Inserters

Lube inserters make it easy to dispense lube evenly on any part of the body. This product is especially good to use for anal play as it ensures that there is a desired amount of lube on the anus. Lube inserters are compatible to use with all types of lubricants and creams. This inserter can be used one of two ways: Remove the plunger by pulling on the top ring and carefully pour your lube into the shaft. Or, you can remove the silicone tip and dip the inserter directly into the lube and pull upwards like a syringe (this method is ideal for thicker lubes).

Lubrication is key when it comes to any type of anal play, which is why a lubricated condom would be the desired choice. We have several options on TooTimid, including latex-free & ultra thin.
