Water-based lubes (for use with condoms)
Water-based lubes are considered the safest all-purpose lubricant choice. They do not damage or weaken latex condoms and, generally, do not irritate the inside of the arse. Particularly since the introduction of glycerine, they have come a long way since KY-jelly.
Water-based lubricants dry up eventually because your rectum absorbs the lubricant’s water content back into the body, leaving a sticky residue. Insufficient lubricant (of any kind) increases friction and is a major factor in condoms tearing or damage to the lining of your arse.
As a general rule a cheap-and-cheerful lube will work though dicks and arseholes may need re-lubing. More expensive lubes (often with glycerine) and sporting the latest in lube science will have more slippiness, lubiness, silkiness and smoothness.
