Lubricants are the real plug!
They help things in the bedroom go more…erm…more smoothly and let’s be honest they are just fun to use. Here is the ultimate list of lubricants you should consider next time, you’re looking to have fun via the back door.
1. Water based lubricants
Known as the “versatile” lube, water-based lubes can be used in practically any activity you can think up, even ones involving silicone sex toys. Water-based lubes are also safe to use with condoms — both latex and non-latex. So go ahead and break out that new silicone toy and go ham.
2. Silicone based lubricants
Silicone lubricants are for when you have really sensitive skin. Silicone is also hypoallergenic, most people won’t experience a reaction
The only downside? The silicone in your lube can deteriorate the surface of silicone toys. When this happens, your toys become less sanitary because it creates abrasions in the silicone The good news? This lubricants can be used with latex condoms.
3. Oil based lubricants
If you’re the type that simply can’t be bothered with reapplying at all once you get going ( we get it. Ugh!) this lube is the gift that keeps you going, going, and going.
The best news? Oil-based lubes can double for sexy and fun massage time. But you can’t use a latex condom because this increases the chances of a ripped or torn condom.
Oil-based lubricants are also associated infections, such as bacterial vaginosis, so choose wisely!
4. Natural lube
Worried about exactly what ingredients you’re putting down there and making your carbon foot print bigger ?
Basically, look for products that have both natural and a small number of ingredients on their list. A lot of these are paraben free and vegan .Coconut oil is a popular choice as well, though it’s got its downsides. It can increase incidence of condom breakage.
After you’ve figured out which lube is best for you, you might want to warm it up a little bit in your hands. This isn’t necessary, but lube can be a little cold on your nether regions if you skip this step. If you’re using a condom, don’t forget to apply a non-oil based lube to the outside. Enjoy sexy times.
