How to choose the right lube

Advertisements

Lube was always linked to the older generation post-menopause, but in reality, lube is made for everyone regardless of age or gender. Lube is a must-have for everyone, and lube should be your best friend.

What is lube?

Lube is a lubricant used during sexual activities to avoid friction or discomfort during sex; it can be used for vaginal sex but is a must for anal sex. Lube can also be used on sex toys or solo play. There are several types of lube available, each with its own pros and cons.

Water-based Lube.

Water-based lube is a more natural feeling lube, and it doesn’t strain; it can be used with sex toys and condoms. However, because it is water-based, it does tend to dry up quickly, but it is perfect for quickies. Water-based lube is easy to clean up, but it is pointless to use in water-based sexual activities.

Silicone-based Lube.

Silicone-based lube is the new kid on the block, and it is very popular. Silicone lube is waterproof, so perfect for that shower sex scene you have in mind, and it is hypoallergic, so great for sensitive skin, and it lasts forever, so no need to reapply the lube. Silicone lube is perfect for all anal activities or fisting. You can use it on non-silicone sex toys, but it will destroy your silicone sex toys over time. Silicone lube stains like a bitch, so don’t use it on your Egyptian cotton sheets.

Oil-based Lube.

Oil-based lube is not as popular as other lubes, don’t get me wrong, they get the job done, but there are several risks involved. Oil-based lubes are great for erotic massages and some water-based fun; however, oil just like silicone lube will stain, and it’s a pain in the arse to clean and remove. Oil-based lube, however, should not be used if you are using condoms as it could lead to tearing of the condom. Oil-based lube could also possibly cause infections due to the coating it creates in the vagina or rectum.

If you are kinkier, heating and cooling lube create different sensations during your sexual activities. You can even buy flavored lubes, but they can leave a gnarly aftertaste in your mouth, and because they are flavored, there are often sugar and additives in the lube that can lead to yeast infections in women.

Lube is your best friend and will assist with more significantly sized partners, and they can also turn a quick romp into hours of fun depending on what you want. When buying lube, always do your research and make sure to read what ingredients they use. If you don’t want to use manufactured lube or you are trying to conceive, natural oils like olive oil or coconut oil are great alternatives.
