    While most personal lubricants will not affect the plastic or stainless steel Aneros models (avoid silicone lubes with the VICE model), what is of more concern are the chemical compounds you are introducing into your body. Remember the wall of your rectum is a permeable membrane allowing chemicals a very direct route into your bloodstream. First, read any cautionary warnings about the material you are about to apply, if it says "FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY" I would strongly advise against its use as a lubricant. Secondly, read the ingredients list, are you comfortable knowing your body will be absorbing those chemicals during
    repeated, long term Aneros use? If you are comfortable with that knowledge, then use that lube.

    The primary function of the lubrication is to assure a minimum of friction between your Aneros and you. Since the rectum produces very little in the way of natural lubrication, it is necessary to provide supplemental lubrication to assure a comfortable and irritation free buffer. Understand the amount of Aneros movement generated by your internal muscular contractions is actually very small, so in that sense it doesn't really slide much at all (except upon insertion and extraction). The concept of the Aneros moving freely is just to make sure there is no encumbrance to these small movements.

    There has been a continuing discussion on the Forum about lubrication types and issues. Next to discussions about the Super-O, lubrication is probably the next most discussed topic. I recommend you first read the Lubrication paragraph in the Getting Started chapter of the Aneros WIKI and then read through the Bestlube..., coconut oil or Unrefined shea butter... threads for additional information and insight into this topic.

    There are many choices for natural lubrication, it is more a matter of personal preference which particular lube you choose to use. Olive oil, coconut oil and almond oil are all popular alternative natural lube choices, shea butter is another popular natural lubricant. These natural lubricants do not contain glycerin which can have a laxative effect on many men. The rectal wall is a highly permeable membrane, easily absorbing water and the chemicals therein. While natural oil lubes do get absorbed like water based lubes, the absorption rate is slower and as the viscosity of the oil increases, the absorption rate decreases. Hence lighter weight (low viscosity) oils like grape seed and olive oil will be more readily absorbed and disperse more rapidly than heavier oils (higher viscosity) like almond oil or canola oil.

    Personally, I am concerned about the uptake of the various chemicals in commercial 'personal lubricants'. Since I've developed a sensitivity to the glycerin found in many of the commercial lubricants, I've switched to using the 'Natural Jelly' formulation. I've also found a 50% almond oil - 50% shea butter lube effective as well.

    Hello, tj.

    If you plan on having a session longer than 1 hour, I suggest you put a thin coating of Vaseline on the Aneros before coating it with Olive Oil. You'll get better, longer lasting lubrication that way.


  • Baby oil can be used besides Vaseline and lubricant.

    I would not use baby oil, it's not meant to be used internally.
    Natural Jelly is the best lube I have used with the aneros.
