Anal play can be scary or intimidating for some folks, especially if worried about a painful experience. But here’s the thing though...anal shouldn’t hurt! A different sensation than you’re used to though and maybe a bit uncomfortable at times? Possibly, but not painful.

And if you’re really afraid to explore the backdoor, I hate it to break it to you, but maybe you’re just *not* ready for anal yet (or ever). That’s perfectly okay and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!!

Butt here’s the thing...

Our bodies use pain to communicate with us, and if you are experiencing pain, take it as a sign from your body to switch things up, add more lube, or stop the play session altogether and try again another time.

However, by numbing the anus and anal muscles, you can no longer receive that important information from your body and you won’t know if something is actually wrong; which can lead to tearing or more serious problems within the body.

As much as you may not want to feel any anal discomfort, a numbing product also numbs you from feeling any of the pleasure and good sensations that come from anal play too!

If you still would prefer something over nothing, it’s okay, we get it and your body, your choice, babe! Butt...perhaps consider a relaxant over a numbing product. They use different (and often natural) ingredients that can help to relax the sphincter & anal muscles but don’t contain any active numbing agents that desensitize you!
