What is an Anal Relaxant?

As the name suggests, anal relaxants use ingredients or additives designed specifically to aid you sphincter muscles to relax naturally. Common active ingredients include natural plant based extracts such as Jojoba, from the Jojoba plant native to Northern Mexico.

Stronger formulas may use mild anesthetics such as FDA approved Benzocaine to lightly numb the area and relax the sphincter muscles. More powerful formulas use medical-grade ingredients such Lidocaine for an even stronger effect.

Why Should I Use an Anal Relaxant?

Just 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.

What are the best Anal Relaxants?

Pjur Backdoor

The best anal relaxant for most people is Pjur Backdoor. It is a silicone lube hybrid featuring 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 if 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.

Anal Eze Cream

Anal Eze Relaxing Gel

Anal Eze is one of our top picks because application is easy, simply squeeze a little on a finger and rub onto the skin.

MQ Reader Review:
“I would not have anal sex with my husband because it was painful. With anal-eze cream, it does not hurt. I actually had an orgasm with it.”

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 Eze is easily the most convenient and long lasting from all others that I have tested.  For the average user, Anal Eze is a good bet.

Active Relaxing Ingredient: Benzocaine
Relaxant Type: FDA Approved Synthetic

Passion Spray Anal Relaxant

Passion Lubes Extra Strength Anal Desensitizing Spray

Passion Spray is one of the best anal relaxants because it is fast acting and includes a mild desensitizer which is not overpowering.

Without a doubt, Passion is one of the best anal relaxants I have used. 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.

Passion Spray is a very well balanced product and an optimal choice for first timers.

Active Relaxing Ingredient: Lidocaine
Relaxant Type: FDA Approved Synthetic
Relaxant Strength: ⭐⭐

Max Relax Calming Anal Ease

Max Relax Calming Desensitizing Anal Lube

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 mild numbing agent makes you feel like you have more control while having sex.

You are therefore 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 best anal relaxants for the past few years and Max is definitely worthy or its place on the list.
