    There are different consistencies - Liquid Silk and Maximum are both made by the same people, but Maximus is much more thick - I think most anal lubes are thicker than regular lube, whether this makes a huge difference I don't know...

    It also depends how you use it. Alot of specifically designed anal lubes are silicone based. This means you can't use them with silicone toys, but they don't dry out anywhere near as quick as the standard water based lubes.

    Silicone lubes are good for anal because it lasts forever, but theyr'e very thin. I need more silicone lube actually, but should probably use up one of my Maximum or Liquid Silk bottles first....

    in terms of lube silicone is so much better (although my experiance with it has nothing to do with sex. When i did dry slope racing we "lubed" the skis to make them go faster, and had some home made stuff with silicone balls in it. Worked so well. The other alternatives were mr sheen, fair liquid or this clear gunk, used for pulling fiberoptic through their outer casing. Wouldn't recomend them for sex use though.) So yeah, silicone is better is the long and short of it

    Yes there is a difference. Ansl lubes tend to be thicker and longer lasting. Some contain ingredients to help relax the muscles, which I found was very important when I first started having anal sex. Particularly if your partner is a reasonable size... Silicone tends to be slippier but I haven't bought s specific silicone anal lube before, only a highstreet brand. I think it is definitely worth getting a specific anal lube!

    Have just realised why my old favourite anal vibe appears to be biting the dust - my anal lube is silicone based. Balls! That's one for the bin then. I was obviously not educated properly in this area when I started my anal journey last year. Rubbish high street sex shops...

    Recommendations for good water based anal lubes sought! Ideally something that tastes minty as he loves having his arse licked and I hate fruit flavoured things! What's the tracy cox one like?

    I was looking at some today but couldn't find any that were water based, minty and had some form of relaxant in it.

    Agrees. Pain exists for a reason, it says stop.

    The only reason I'd use it was if I knew from experience that I could take the planned session without damage, but that nevertheless it would be a little uncomfortable. Say, if that discomfort was the difference between relaxing enough to come and staying uptight. Not personally an issue, but I know for some people that really makes a difference. And anyway, assuming there's a significantly lower rate of condom use with anal ( I think that's right) wouldn't the anaesthetic numb more important things too?

    AA it desensitises but not to the extreme that you don't feel anything, including tearing - that would be no fun! The lube i use just helps the muscles to relax so, if anything, you are less likely to damage yourself x

    Ah, maybe I didn't phrase what I meant all that well - wasn't looking for something that would desensitise. Just relax a little. But as WandA pointed out, pain is there for a good reason.

    The old silicone lube I had says it relaxes muscles, but apparently doesn't desensitise. Plus it's mintyness is a tiny weeny bit tingly which is quite nice. So if there's no relaxant in an anal lube what's the difference from normal lube? Is it just thicker?

    Definitely not going near his bum with toothpaste. I think I'd know about that one pretty quickly!
