Whether you’re having anal sex, indulging in butt play or using anal toys, you should never be without a bottle of anal lube.
Because the anus and rectum aren’t self lubricating, you'll need plenty of long-lasting lubrication to make your experience as pleasurable as possible.
Anal lubricant has a much thicker consistency than regular water-based lube, which helps to protect the sensitive skin of the anus.
Plus, anal play is enhanced with a good slick of lube - by making sure that there's no harsh friction, you'll enjoy your anal adventures much more.
Choosing the right lube depends on what you're doing and which toys you're using. Here's our guide to the best anal lubes.
It's not quite as simple as getting your wife to let you try anal sex. I think the answer here is to look at the bigger picture.
BlueBella have hit the headlines in both the Daily Mail and Daily Express today after CEO Emily Bendell was snubbed by Ann Widdecombe at the Women Of Worth Awards, 2011.
Bendell was due to be presented the Small Business of the Year Award by Ann Widdecombe, who was guest of honour at the annual ceremony, celebrating women's contribution to business.
After seeing a short film outlining Bendell's lingerie and lovestuff business, Widdecombe swiftly declined to present the award to her, leaving her standing until one of the organisers quickly stepped in.
"It was a real surprise to me that it happened at an event that was meant to celebrate the success of women. It certainly took the shine out of the day for me," said Bendell. "Ann is a great proponent of women getting ahead by their own merits so I would have hoped that she would have recognised my acheivements."
Ann eventually agreed to have a photo taken with Emily, off-stage, and without the award.

Lovehoney's packed with sporty types and all-round good eggs and this year there were four of the Lovehoney team running the Bath Half Marathon 2011 in aid of good causes. They all ran with a smile on their faces (what else would you expect from the sexual happiness people?) a spring in their step and a jangle in their pockets.
Leading the pack was marathon-running veteran and Co-Founder of Lovehoney, Neal. A mere 13.1 miles and two laps round Bath proved no obstacle and he raced past the finish line after with a time of 1:55. Running her first half marathon and filling us with awe and admiration was Head Buyer, Bonny, who didn't stop running and picked up her medal a little after Neal at 2:55. In total, Bonny and Neal raised over £500 for Dorothy House Hospice.
Head of E-Commerce Matt customised this Sexy Nurse Outfit to run as a Dorothy House Hospice nurse, complete with wig and stockings (we will spare you the full length pictures), raising £733 for the charity. Matt finished in 2:15, blaming papparazzi intrusion and repeat photo calls (we still think that's a smashing time though!). Another new half marathon runner was PR Executive Hannah who ran the course in 2:08 and managed to simultaneously smile and point out her aching feet to the Lovehoney cheerleaders who had gathered to watch the race. Hannah raised a stonking £708 for Dementia UK. Well done everyone!
For most women, the key to orgasm is direct stimulation of the clitoris. Packed with nerve endings and a one-track mind for pleasure you'd think giving the clitoris what it wants would be easy? Unfortunately, many of us know from experience that just isn't the case. But don't worry, help is on hand!
Orgasm boosters are effective and easy to use. Simply apply to your favourite spots before playing with a toy or lover and you'll soon feel a growing tingle that makes you more aware of your body and heightens your sensitivity to touch.
