Relax. It sounds easy on paper, but in real life, it’s not always the case. Anal sex is tough to begin with, and learning to relax your anal muscles can be a challenge enough. Being able to control these muscles is important, and using an anal relaxant along the way can help give you that extra control to ease you into the new experience of having anal sex. Below are the best anal relaxants to help make sex more enjoyable.
Anal relaxants come in a number of forms and when paired with a high performing lube, these anal relaxants help to make entry easier, reduce pain and make the experience more enjoyable overall.
The Best Anal Relaxants
Although Pjur Backdoor is a silicone lube hybrid, it features the most powerful anal relaxant I have ever tested. Backdoor uses what is known as Jojoba extracts, a natural muscle relaxant that as an added benefit, also provides a numbing effect to ease pain.
If you are looking to avoid pain, or are having anal sex for the first time, this is your most effective and powerful option. The included silicone lube is also slippery and heavy duty making things “slide” in with almost no effort. Backdoor a great lube, a fantastic relaxant, and the all around best choice you can use for anal sex. For a more in-depth look you can check out my full Pjur Backdoor review here.
Passion Spray is probably my favorite anal relaxant because it is fast acting and includes a mild desensitizer which is not overpowering. Passion is one of the best anal relaxants I have used and the effects will last you without having to add more halfway through.
The actual product is more like a gel and all it takes is one or two good pumps to get the right amount. It is important to note that this is primarily a relaxant and will not numb you out so you can still sense what is happening. It is a very well balanced product and an optimal choice for first timers.
The first thing you will notice about Max Relax is the feeling of quality throughout, from he packaging to the gel itself. This relaxant is catered specifically to relax your muscles and does not have a numbing agent. Overall, I like this compared to most other relaxants because the lack of a numbing agent makes you feel like you have more control while having sex and you are more in-tune with what is going on.
Max also pairs well with other lubricants and doesn’t get diluted if you decide to mix it up. I have had a lot of fun experimenting with different combinations and this is one of my overall favorites. It has been a reader’s choice for the past few years and Max is definitely worthy or its place on the list.
MaleQ Reader Review:
“I would not have anal sex with my husband because it was painful. With anal-ese cream, it does not hurt. I actually had an orgasm with it.”
Anal Ese is one of our top picks because application is easy, simply squeeze a little on a finger and rub onto the skin. The cream feels similar to a hand lotion, but it is not oily and the relaxing effects work quickly.
There are very few other cream products out there, but Anal Ese is easily the most convenient and long lasting from all others that I have tested. For the average user, Anal Ese is a good bet.
Choosing an anal relaxant is only the first step. If you want to great sex then don’t forget to pair your relaxant of choice with a quality anal lube. Many anal lubes such as Pjur Backdoor already have an anal relaxant built right in, so you can get all the great effect of the relaxants above in one package.
