Anal play lovers, time to "fess up". Do you use a lube with any numbing agent in it?

Bignuf Bignuf
We have read in a lot of comments here about how to "never use lube with a numbing agent" to avoid injury. I also see there are still lots of anal lubes out there with Benzocaine, Lidocaine or other "natural" numbing agents in them. So, how many of us regular anal players actually are using lubes with numbing agents?
(Kind of like Q-Tips....they warn you "never put them in your ears", but I saw a study that over 80% of regular buyers of Q-Tips admit to putting them in their ears)!!! Is this the same deal? Let's find out. I am even making this a "private" vote, so people can be honest and not chided by others!

I wouldn't use a numbing agent. Pain is an important indicator to stop playing.

I completely agree. A numbing agent would make it more difficult to tell when I'm adequately warmed up for safe anal play.

Numbing agents are dangerous - the solution is adequate warmup and plenty of 'traditional' lubes. Our favorite lube these days is coconut oil. It's fantastic! Inexpensive - 25x less that over-the-counter lubes. Has antibacterial properties - and melts at body temperature.

Since it's solid at room temperature - I can take a big dollop (remember its cheap) and slip it into her ass - where it immediately melts and provides great internal lubrication without the need for 'shooters'.

Clean up is a snap - even though its an oil - warm soap and water provides an easy clean up.

I agree with that statement, in principle. In reality, I know many people who use such lubes, I have myself, and they sure do sell a lot of different ones out there, so somebody is buying the stuff.

I agree, in that I am all about "all gain, no pain".

I completely agree with pain being an important indicator to change something. It's particularly thin skin there and can tear easily, and being able to prevent it from getting to that point is important. I've had light tearing a few times, and if I had used a numbing agent, it might had been worse.

I've never used a pain reducer for that, we always just go slow, work our way up, and if we just can't get it to feel right that time for some reason, we stop and put it off for next time.

Although I like to be 'Dom' in my long term sexual relationships, it is VERY important to me that my partners are enjoying what we're doing. So I have NEVER used a numbing agent, believing as the above posters that pain is an important signal that something isn't right. I'd rather my partner say something to stop what we're doing, than to continue and injure themselves. A little discomfort may be OK at the beginning, but if its real pain, then I haven't done enough as their lover to get them ready or in the mood.

Nope, we've always gone with the just start slow, make sure everything is properly lubricated, stop if overwhelmingly painful.

I would be too concerned about damaging myself to use a numbing agent. If it hurts too much, then it's not going to happen. As I've heard from other camgirls: Some days just aren't "butt days"

Nope. If it hurts, you're doing it wrong.
