Lube is so important during sex, even more so during anal sex. One of my favourite companies for anal lube is MEO. They have a wide selection of quality lubes especially formulated for anal. When I was sent MEO AnalPush Extreme Anal Lube I was excited to try this new lube.
I love anal sex but I do suffer some pain after a particularly vigorous session. AnalPush is a numbing lube which promises to minimise pain and aid the stretching of the anus. This bothers me slightly as pain is a red flag for problems during sex. During anal this is particularly important. If you remove the stop signs how do you know you need to stop?
The AnalPush bottle is the familiar black flip top bottle, with red and white writing emblazoned down the side. The lube itself is extremely loose, very thin and silky. It feels almost oily and slippery on my fingers. There is a slight perfumey smell to AnalPush which is pleasant.
Clear and tasteless, AnalPush literally trickles out of the bottle. This surprises me as usually anal lubes are quite thick and gloopy. The feel of the lube on your skin is slick and silky.
I decide to test AnalPush cautiously on myself to see how well it works as a numbing agent. Following the instructions, I slicked a little AnalPush onto my glass plug and used it to massage the lube into my arse. AnalPush is a silicone based lube so isn’t compatible with silicone toys but is safe for use with condoms.
I didn’t notice any tingling, or numbing sensations at all whilst massaging the lube into my skin. However, on insertion I did notice the plug went in much easier and although I didn’t feel the usual pinch as the bulb entered I could still feel the sensation fully. Just no pain.
I was genuinely quite surprised the difference AnalPush made. I wore the plug during masturbation as I would usually and decided I wanted to further test the AnalPush. Once again removing the plug was totally pain free and easier than usual. I used my usual favourite anal dildo for penetration, I never reapplied the AnalPush as I didn’t need to. The Silicone formula had stayed put nicely and I felt suitably warmed up and well lubed.
The dildo slid inside me with absolutely no pain at all, but all sensation was still there. Whilst I found this extremely pleasurable I could see how if I used AnalPush for anal sex with my partner I might get carried away. I regularly ask him to be rougher during sex and anally it’s only the pain which stops us from possibly causing me real damage.
Equally MEO say AnalPush aids anal stretching by minimising pain. I feel like this could lead to complications as once again the red flag is removed to warn us to stop. I’d be very concerned about potential tearing if my anus was numbed and I was engaged in stretching play.
I find that pain during anal sex can be minimised by preparation, lube and relaxation. These contribute to a less painful experience. I’m aware some people are fans of extreme anal sex and love numbing lubes. If this is you and you are looking for a good anal lube with numbing effects, then yes AnalPush is a great choice. It’s certainly long lasting once working and a little goes a long way.
The lube itself is a nice lube. There are no toxic ingredients and the numbing agent Laureth 9 is a standard topical anaesthetic. If you’re intent on using AnalPush and you aren’t very experienced in extreme anal play, then I’d advise only using it with toys you’ve used before and be cautious. This way you know you can take them without any risk to your anal health.
I can’t fault AnalPush as an anal numbing lube. It does the job brilliantly and is a great lube. However, due to the importance of being fully aware of your personal capabilities in terms of being filled I wouldn’t use AnalPush for regular anal sex.
MEO sell AnalPush for £15.97 for 100ml. AnalPush is dermatologically tested to ensure skin and mucous membrane compatibility and I can honestly say I never suffered any side effects after use. There was no stickiness after use and it left my skin feeling soft.
For regular extreme anal fans this would be a great lube, however I advise extreme caution if you’re numbing your ability to assess the risk in a situation. You can buy AnalPush Extreme Anal Lube from MEO for £15.97.
Thank you to the great people at MEO for sending me AnalPush lube in exchange for an honest and impartial review.
