This anal relaxing glide from Intimate Earth has been enhanced with natural oil of cloves, known for its analgesic/anaesthetic qualities. Oil of cloves contains eugenol, a natural pain Reliever and anti-inflammatory compound. It's a traditional remedy for treating the pain of a toothache, and it's extensively used in fish hatcheries for immobilizing fish for handling and sorting. Given this, it stands to reason that it will also minimise the discomfort of anal penetration. It's said to give a "cushiony" Feel to anal sex, without the extreme numbing (and potentially toxic) effects of Lidocaine or benzocaine, both petroleum derivatives. This "cushiony" Feel makes for more comfortable penetration and repeated thrusting, especially when anxiety is present, or when a particularly large object is being inserted. Water-based glides, like this one, are recommended for use with silicone sex toys, as they will not precipitate breakdown of the silicone solids. They are also safe for use with latex condoms. This product is packaged in 4 oz./120ml bottles.
