I am an anal girl...wait, scratch that. I am a girl who likes anal sex. It may not be the fashion, but hey, I follow my own rules when it comes to sex. So, I love anal sex when it is done right and for that to happen there must be two components: a caring partner who will take things slowly and GREAT LUBE!
Traditionally, my go-to lube has been a silicone based lube. Why? Because the anal canal does not lubricate, so you really do need to make sure there is A LOT of lubrication added so that things can slide in and out easily without causing tears or pains. Silicone lubricant is long-lasting, doesn't absorb into the body and is usually a bit thicker than a standard water-based lube. However, silicone lubes can be unfriendly to condoms and to silicone toys or plugs. This makes me sad :( So, the end result is a reapplying of lube over and over again.
Well, look no further because Wicked Water-Based Jelly style lubricant is FANTASTIC! It is thick, but not sticky; is non-staining, non-oily; washes away easily with soap and water; feels amazingly smooth and sensual. Works really, really well - no need to constantly reapply. It is absolutely ideal for anal play.
When my partner and I tried this out we were prepared for it not to work well. Both of us have had experiences with anal sex, and water-based lubes are usually not the ticket, especially when you want to use condoms, which we did. When we were ready to begin he squirted a fair amount onto his condom sheathed penis and began working it into my anal canal. The lube feels really smooth and silky, not sticky at all. It is thicker, like a jelly, and that makes things feel good. It didn't take long for him to work his full way in. Here was the test: would we need to reapply, even though he used quite a bit?
The answer: no! This lube was long-lasting and totally anal approved! We had a nice session (maybe 15 minutes) of anal action and there was no need to reapply. It was pretty nice to not have to stop, start, or have lube running down my butt crack because trying to use more during the act never works out well. I was really pleased with this lube from start to finish to, well, aftercare. It cleaned up really easily with just a washcloth and warm, soapy water. The condom was intact and my partner said it felt amazingly slick to him. Win-win for all involved!
I highly suggest this lubricant for your next anal adventure - whether with toy or partner. It is safe for use with all toys and condoms too. So, if you feel like getting your anal on - try this lube - it is truly WICKED!
