Lube, lube, lube is an absolute must when it comes to sex, especially for anal play.
Unlike the vagina, the anus is not self-lubricating and can't get wet unless you help it out. Not using enough lube is the main reasons why anal can be unpleasant for some people. When you use proper lubrication, you reduce friction. Thicker lubes are best for anal sex, as anal walls are thinner than vaginal walls, and thus require a lube that can keep them nice and slippery to reduce the chances of cuts and tears inside the rectum. Abrasions increase your risk for contracting STI’s.
When it comes to lube, there are options! The question is which is best for the job at hand? Momentum Intimacy carries three different types of lubricants that can assist in anal play. Water-based lube is widely used because it works well in almost every scenario. Not only does water-based lube wash out of sheets and clothing, but it also works well with condoms and sex toys. It’s also usually tolerated well by people’s bodies. Our water based lube is specially formulated to last longer and is gel-like in consistency. Momentum water-based formula is doctor recommended, silky, never sticky. However, one thing to keep in mind is that the anus absorbs water quickly and can dry out easily when you're using a water-based lube, so you will have to reapply it more often.
Silicone-based lubes are a great alternative to water-based lubes, and they’re perfect for anal sex as they last much longer inside the rectum. If you hate having to stop to apply more lube mid-session, our silicone based lube is for you. Momentum Intimacy's silicone based lube won’t become sticky as they dry out. Our exclusive silicone blend is formulated to stay slippery so you can play as long as you want. It’s incredibly versatile. Use it in the shower or hot tub. It’s non-water-soluble so you won’t lose the momentum you create. It also makes a wonderful alternative to massage oil, leaving your skin soft and caressable. It is safe to use with latex, polyisoprene, and polyurethane condoms. But be wary that it can stain sheets and clothing, so keep a towel down, take off your good shirt and protect your linen! Silicone-based lube can also damage sex toys made from silicone, so for this reason, it’s best to stick to water-based lube if you are going to be playing with toys.
Water and silicone-based hybrid lubricants are the best of both worlds. They can last longer than a standard water-based lube while not being as thick as many silicone-based lubricants. Our hybrid lubes are perfect for anal sex because they provide the slipperiness without the unnatural, sticky feel. Physician-created and formulated with superior quality ingredients, this lubricant ensures a silky, smooth glide. Paraben and preservative-free and safe for use with condoms, prepare to get wet and slippery without the mess, just bliss.
At the end of the day when it comes to anal sex it doesn’t matter which lube you use just always remember, the more lube, the better.
