The best lube for anal sex (2016 update)

Years back, I was asked what’s the best lube for anal. At the time, I championed Boy Butter as the worthiest choice. Times have changed, though, and the once formidable king of the hill has been supplanted by the newest and best lube for anal, The Butters Original All-Natural Head-to-Toe Lubricant & Moisturizer.

Yes, I make The Butters and that means I’m incredibly biased. Still, I decided to make it for a reason: traditional lubes cost too damn much. In the search for something less expensive, I found a way to make a better lube for about a third of the price. That lube is The Butters and it also has great conductivity, the perfect balance of slick versus tactile, helps prevents tears, softens everything, endures longer and is even great for fisting.

I’d say that other butter has some catching up to do. Even still, let me give you some more details about why The Butter is the new best in ass.



An 8oz tub of Boy Butter Original costs $21 shipped. As an average millennial gay making $13.75/hr at a part-time job while also paying student loans, I’m simply not about that life. So, an 8oz tub of The Butters cost $8.67 shipped. Yeah, really.



I’m not super homo-pathic or whatever, but I like to keep things as simple as possible. That’s partially why I got fed up paying the high prices for Boy Butter. If I’m paying that much, I deserve better quality.

Theirs is partly natural and the ingredients are kind of confusing: Partially Hydrogenated Vegetables Oils, Glycerin, Polysorbate 60,Tecoheryl Acetate, Glyceryl Stearate, Phenyl Trimethicone.

The Butters is all-natural, vegan and made to work perfectly with your body. I use only 9 ingredients in The Butters: pure organic aloe vera juice, raw grade a golden Ghanaian shea butter, pure coconut oil, pure extra virgin olive oil, pure grapeseed oil, pure palm kernel oil, pure soybean oil, apple cider vinegar, and arrowroot. 

There’s no sugar/glycerin to cause yeast infections. Nothing you have to Google to understand. These ingredients are time tested for bodily benefits and I think that’s pretty damn dope.



Boy Butter’s endurance could be a lot better. Now, this isn’t a knock against Boy Butter alone. In fact, almost all lubes don’t last as long as I want them to. That’s why I make sure The Butters will stay slippery through before work quickies and midafternoon marathons. I’ve even got video evidence to prove it.


Overall Performance:

Endurance isn’t the only goal for lube performance, it should also help you feel more connected with your partner. With it’s unique collection of oils, The Butters melts just below body temp – meaning it’s creamy texture melts quickly to a thin, tactile yet slippery coating. That coating doesn’t mean you have to worry about an oily or sticky build up because your body can absorb and use every ingredient in The Butters.


Made for your body:

Being able to absorb The Butters is crucial to it working so well. The ingredients all have unique properties that make them suited for use in lube. Most notably, though, soybean oil’s skin healing, grapeseed’s anti-inflamatory, and shea’s conditioning work together to prevent tears in the anus and heal the ones that do happen quicker. They work by simply making the anal tissue softer, stronger, and more flexible.

Not only will those insides be ready to for action, they’ll also feel better than ever. Soft, plush, buttery insides are the best. The Butters will help yours stay that way.



While I don’t do it often, I do really like being a fisting top. In the past, I’ve resorted to using Crisco to avoid spending a fortune on traditional lubes for fisting fun, that stuff is goopy, takes forever to melt and wash away. Luckily, The Butters is thick enough to survive elbow deep fun time. Plus, the arrowroot in The Butters helps it blend with your natural lubrication, which will only make things easier and more fun.


See, I told The Butters Original All-Natural Head-to-Toe Lubricant & Moisturizer was the best in ass.  

Even though it's really great for anal, it's not so great with latex condoms. Sadly, non-latex condoms are harder to find in stores and some don't like ordering online. It's not too much hassle but it can be it can be a hurdle for many valid reasons.

Luckily, there's a whole wide world of magnum non-latex condoms available at Lucky Bloke including the female/internal condoms I've raved about. They didn't pay me to say/link that, I just like their shop and management from our work in the past. Also, I think you might find a preference for non-latex condoms. The ones I've used always seem to hug my dick a little better.
