Sex Myth’s Busted: Anal Sex Hurts

It is not uncommon for The Wet Platinum Man (the wet guy) to be asked via a Direct Message on Facebook or Twitter (@WetPlatinumMan) what to expect the first time when having anal sex. This is a subject you must discuss openly with your partner, so once you the two of you agree to the when and where, here are a few answers to those burning questions, before you go uh….there.

1. “Isn’t it too dirty? I mean physically dirty there?” Many people prefer to do an enema prior to having anal sex because they think it’s going to be a dirty place.  It’s actually not as dirty as you might think. The rectum and anal canal do not typically store fecal matter.  That said, you should always practice safe sex and use a condom.

2. “Won’t having anal sex stretch me out too much and cause me to have “accidents” in the future?”  This is another idea that is pure myth.  The external and internal sphincters are flexible muscles and can accommodate various sizes without the possibility of losing complete control over them.  There is a possibility of damaging or tearing the muscles so it is important that you go slowly, relax, use lots of lubricant and stop if there is any pain.

3. “Will it harm me? Will it be painful? Having sex anally?” It shouldn’t be harmful nor should it be painful.  First, take it slowly.  Second, be sure to use that one key ingredient for anal sex--personal lubricant, it should within reach say on or in your nightstand.  We recommend Wet Platinum Premium Personal Lubricant or Wet Uranus Anal Lubricant.   Wet Uranus is specifically formulated to provide the lubrication that the anus cannot create on its own.  Remember to use it liberally and often.

5. “If I am not worried about STDs because I am in a monogamous relationship, do I still need to use a condom?”  We suggest that you do use a condom—every time. We always advocate safe sex, as anal sex is a high risk activity for transmitting and contracting STDs.  Talk to your doctor if you have had unprotected anal sex even if you believe yourself to be in a monogamous relationship.  Also, as previously stated, it is also a good idea to use Wet Platinum Premium Personal Lubricant on the condom; this will reduce the risk of breakage due to the vigorous use in a dry area like the anus.

Remember to always have consent before having anal sex with your partner.  If you find this information helpful, be sure to forward it to a friend. You’d be surprised how many can benefit from an open dialog about sex.  Wet Uranus Anal Lubricant is available at most local adult boutiques or online at, where discreet shipping is available.

Myth-Busted: Oral Sex Is NOT Safe Sex, But It Can Be Safer Sex With These Tips!

Some love giving it. Some would rather receive it. Some are not into it either way.  While some may consider oral sex safer than intercourse, it is not considered 100% safe by the experts.

What Is Oral Sex?
Oral sex is defined by mouth to genitalia contact.  Most people are familiar with the term fellatio, stimulation of the male genitals and cunnilingus or stimulation of the female genitals, however, oral sex can include anilingus, or oral to anal contact also called ‘rimming’. Many commonly known STDs or STI’s can be transmitted via any of these types of oral sex. Whether on the receiving or giving end, there are ways to make the practice safer and more fun.

Is It Safe?
Oral sex is on the rise, and even those who consider themselves virgins may be unknowingly putting themselves at risk for a long list of STDs . The most common of those being Gonorrhea, Herpes, Hepatitis B, HIV, Syphilis, Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and Chlamydia which may be spread through giving or receiving oral sex.

According to a recent article from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC):
• The risk of HIV transmission through oral sex is much less than that from anal or vaginal sex—but it is not zero.
• Performing oral sex on an HIV-infected man, with ejaculation, is the riskiest oral sex activity.
• Factors that may increase the risk of HIV transmission through oral sex are oral ulcers, bleeding gums, genital sores, and the presence of other sexually transmitted infections. You can read the entirety of the post on the CDC’s website here:

How to Make Oral Sex Safer.
But what to do if we still wish to practice oral sex? The only way to be sure if you are completely safe is not to have any sexual contact. Uh, right? That said, let’s be more realistic than that. Oral sex is only considered safe if you and your partner are in a 100%-committed, monogamous relationship and both of you have been tested for all STDs. If this is not you, we have a few suggestions to make it safer and more fun for you and your partner.

According to the University of Georgia’s Health Center…
When practicing safer oral sex: “For oral sex on a man, using a flavored latex condom can reduce STI transmission. Some people complain that condoms have a rubbery taste and lessen the sensation on the penis.” Try this tip: Using a small amount of Wet® Light® Personal Lubricant inside the condom may increase sensation and adding some to the outside will make it more palatable for the giver. It has a pleasantly sweet taste. An added benefit to note: when used properly, lubricants can also reduce the risk of condom breakage.(Note: For oral-anal contact, a latex barrier is strongly recommended to reduce the risk of STI transmission.)

How to Make Oral Sex More Fun
Whether on the giving or receiving end, it is a skill that can be learned; the good news is with practice we can all get better and better at it. If you are on the giving end, moaning or erotic talk can enhance both your pleasure. If on the receiving end, remember to relax.

For those who wish to perform oral sex for their partners but are more worried about possible odors that arise, we have a suggestion for both of you.  Add more fruit to your diet.  It has been shown that eating strawberries, pineapples, and honeydew melons while limiting the intake of red meat and dairy will increase the pleasure and overall taste and scent for both of you.

So just relax, be safer, and enjoy the give and take.

Time to Make those Summer Vacation Plans!

Are you thinking about taking an out-of-this-world vacation this summer?

Don't forget to pack Wet® Uranus™ Anal Lubricants with in your suitcase when you leave town! Available in both water-based and silicone-based formulas, these formulas are thicker than our other formulas to give long-lasting lubrication and a little extra cushioning needed for anal play. Both formulas are non-sticky, latex friendly and paraben-free.

It's steamy hot outside, so why not make it just as hot inside? You can relax at home with a steamy DVD. Find a sexy movie that turns you both on and a cool space to relax. As you watch, feed each other popsicles or chilled white wine. Kissing and nuzzling will soon lead to massages. The next thing you know, you'll be teaching the people in the film that you're watching a new move or two.  Give each other sensual massage with Wet® Nuru Massage Gel --always an erotic idea. Watch our Video to learn Nuru massage techniques.

You don't have to wait until you are in bed to unleash your sexual beast. Let your sexuality shine when you tell your lover that you're thinking about him and already getting aroused. You can also send some sexy texts to your significant other while you are away from each other. Send all the dirty details of what you plan to do to him when you're reunited. 

After a night of sexual escapades make plans to have breakfast al fresco. You're already feeling relaxed after an evening of amorous activity, so put on a sexy robe and serve pancakes and orange juice outside on the patio. That maple syrup doesn't have to be limited for use on the pancake. There are plenty of other places you might want to try drizzling it and letting him lick it off. 

Or why not find a popular adults-only swimming pool where you can enjoy some leisure time and inspiring scenery?  Go to the pool with the intention of relaxing and unwinding. Bring a towel fresh and fluffy from the dryer.  Lay it out on a pool chair and check out the hotties. Close your eyes and let yourself take a little fantasy nap in the shade if that’s what turns you on.
