When it comes to more pleasurable, safer sex, lube is a must. The anus is not self-lubricating, so choosing the right one will help to facilitate a smooth ride, enhancing pleasure and feel (and avoiding tearing and pain).
A perfect match is based on your body chemistry and preferred types of play. Lubes interact with different bodies in particular ways (and bodies change over time) so sometimes it takes a bit of trial and experimentation to find the right combination.
The average rectal pH is less acidic than the vagina—something to keep in mind when choosing a water-based lube for anal play. A lube that causes stinging, burning or itching could mean that it’s not balanced for your rectum’s pH.
