What Are Numbing Anal Creams?
A numbing cream is specifically made to slightly numb the anus, making it less likely that you’ll experience pain. Make sure you weigh the pros and cons with this, and go very slowly if you’re using a numbing cream. Although not being able to feel pain may seem like a good thing in this situation, pain means there’s something wrong, so you want to be able to spot it.
What Are Anal Relaxants?
Not to be confused with numbing creams, a relaxant helps you relax your anal muscles. Some people accidentally conflate the two because they can both reduce pain during anal sex. However, relaxants tend to reduce pain because they make penetration easier, while numbing creams tend to reduce pain because they actually make sure you don’t feel the area around the anus.
What Are Anal Stimulants?
Although you might not think you want to use a stimulant when you’re trying to relax, stimulants are sometimes added to anal lube to play around with the sensations. If you’ve been doing anal for a while and you want something new, a stimulant, which may introduce a slight tingling or cooling sensation, could be just what you’re looking for.
Should I Use Condoms With Anal Lube?
Although it’s not any more necessary with anal sex than it is with vaginal sex, you can definitely still use condoms with anal lube. Just make sure you’re using the right type of condoms, and never use condoms more than once.
