What is the best lube for to use with butt plugs or anal toys. So when it comes to lubes, we have three main choices. The first one is a water-based lube, then there is silicon-based lube. And then finally there are oil-based loops, and it’s really tricky on knowing which one to use. However, let’s go through each of the lubes pros and cons, and that will help you make a decision.
Water-based lubes are fairly universal. It’s important to note, though, that water-based lubes were originally designed for uses in vaginas. Vaginas produce their own lubrication, so that keeps them nice and wet.
However, anus es absorb water rather than increasing lubrication. So for that reason, the water in the water-based lube can be absorbed, and that means that after a short time, the lubes often become quite sticky and tacky.
That’s a problem if you’re planning on having extended play because you can need to keep on replenishing the lube.
The other thing is that if you place a toy inside your butt with a water-based lube, as the water gets absorbed, that can actually mean that the toy will. Lock in and make it harder to remove. So if you’re wearing a toy for a longer period of time, I don’t recommend water-based lube. The one time I recommend water-based lube is when you are going to be having anal sex afterwards and planning on using condoms.
Because water-based lubes are safe with condoms, all other lubes can deteriorate the fine latex in a condom. Starting again. Non-water based lubes can deteriorate the latex in the condom, and so for that reason, we only recommend water-based lube if you’re planning on using a condom at some point. I am quite a fan of silicon-based lube.
Silicon is great. A little goes a long way. Keep that in mind if you spill it on the floor, but it’s a great universal lube. There are lots of different varieties. Some of them have different additives in them. However, if you go for a good quality, Silicon-based lube you are going to be in for a good experience.
There are questions about whether you can use silicon-based lube on silicon toys, and the answer is for most quality silicon toys made of platinum grade silicon, when you use them with a quality silicon lube, say for example Swiss navy then you are going to be fine after you’ve played with the toys.
Just be sure to wash off all of the lubes from the toys, and that will make sure that there’s no interaction between the lube and the silicon toy, so that’s a good one. You can use silicon-based lube with all other toys, whether they be vinyl, whether they be rubber, or whether they be, say, glass or plastic, silicon-based lube is a great choice. However, keep in mind that it’s not designed for use with condoms.
Finally , the oil-based lubes, oil-based lubes are good universal lubes. Again, you cannot use them with condoms, however, they do have a nice long lasting effect as well. The trick with oil-based lubes though, is that they can irritate the lining of the butt and you may get some uncomfortable sensations if you are not.
You know, if it’s reacting to the skin on your butt. So I recommend if you’re gonna try an oil-based lube that you use a little bit carefully, perhaps on the inside of your wrist,
?And this is to make sure that there’s no physical reactions to the lube. I find that the oil-based lubes are a little bit messier, a little bit glugier, but if you’re doing bigger toys or depth play, they can be a very good choice.
If you want your toys to last and to be. Living with you for many, many years of pleasure after you’ve played with your toy. No matter what lube you use, it’s really important that you wash off all of the lubricant, throw your toys into some warm water and a little bit of antibacterial soap, and give them a good wash.
I also have a video that talks about how to sterilize toys, so I recommend checking that out if your toys are being shared with other people, so that will reduce the chances of sharing of. Bloodborne viruses like Hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and even H I V. I hope this was helpful and I hope it guides you towards the best lube for your next play session.
Happy to answer any questions below. Have an amazing day.
In this video, I wanted to discuss the different types of lubricants to use with butt plugs or anal toys. Here are the main points:
Best Lubes For Anal Toys and Butt Plugs
- Water-Based Lube:
- Universal but originally designed for vaginal use, which self-lubricates.
- Anuses absorb water, making this lube sticky and tacky over time.
- It is not ideal for extended play or long-term toy use as it requires frequent reapplication and can “lock in” the toys, making them hard to remove.
- Safe for use with condoms.
- Silicon-Based Lube:
- Long-lasting and doesn’t require frequent reapplication.
- Compatible with most toys made of platinum-grade silicon.
- Not recommended for use with condoms.
- Advised to wash off after play to avoid any interaction between the lube and the silicon toy.
- Oil-Based Lube:
- Long-lasting but can irritate the lining of the butt.
- Not safe to use with condoms.
- Good for larger toys or depth play.
- Test for skin reactions before use.
- Condom Safety: Only water-based lubes should be used with condoms, as other types can deteriorate latex.
- Cleanup: Regardless of the lube type, always wash your toys with warm water and antibacterial soap after use to prolong their lifespan and prevent the transmission of bloodborne viruses.
