Anonymous asked: (Cisfemale) My boyfriend and I have been trying anal stimulation - he's really uncomfortable with actual penetrative anal sex so we've been using butt plugs and anal-safe vibrators - and I keep finding that I get gas and slight diarrhea after for several days. I can't find ingredients listings for the lube we use, so could it be parabens or something in the lube causing it? It's really hard to get any paraben-free lubes here (even online) so I think if it is the lube I'll just stop with anal.
Are the toys you are using higher quality (silicone, metal, glass, ceramic, or 100% plastic), if not that could be causing it. Also, yes parabens or glycerin in the lube could be causing it. Sliquid is a brand that generally is paraben and glycerin free so if you can get a hold of that it should work.
