Choosing A Lubricant For Pleasure And Safety

Whether you’re having vaginal sex with a partner or masturbating on your own, you may want to add lubrication to:

  • Decrease painful friction in the vagina and/or anus
  • Enhance sexual arousal by stimulating the flow of blood to the vulva, which encourages your body to create some of its own lube
  • Lubricate the clitoris; this can create more sexual pleasure and an easier route to orgasm
  • Change taste during oral sex
  • Keep vaginal skin soft and help maintain elasticity of vaginal walls

However, many couples don’t realize the importance of personal lubricant and may be harming their sex life by making things much more uncomfortable than they need be. Among lubes, there are many choices, whether it is flavored, water-based, silicone-based, organic, etc. This quick guide will help you decide which lube is best for you and your partner.

Water-based Lube: A popular choice for lots of people, water-based lubes won’t stain your sheets like silicone can do to certain fibers. It is also very gentle to the body and will eventually absorb. Water-based lubricants are compatible with all sex toy materials.

Flavored lube is the lube of choice for oral sex! Typically water-based, they add flavor to your lovemaking and can be used for intercourse as well. Check the ingredients for sweeteners, but many lubricant manufacturers make their flavors sugar-free.

Water-based with synthetic glycerin lubricants are  easy to find, low-cost, safe to use with latex condoms, do not stain fabric. However, it can dry out quickly, often sticky or tacky, and synthetic glycerin can trigger yeast infections in women who are prone to them, products containing parabens or propylene glycol can irritate sensitive skin.

Glycerin-free water-based lubricants last longer than lubricants with glycerin, can reduce irritation to the genitals, safe with latex condoms, do not stain fabric, usually thicker and provide a cushion, some are more recommended for anal play
If you have recurrent yeast infections, these are the lubricants to use. They can contain vegetable-derived glycerin,which does not trigger yeast infections

Silicone-based Lube: These last the longest of all and are especially recommended for women with chronic vaginal dryness or genital pain.Silicone-based lubricant may be considered ‘the classic’ among lubes. It creates a super-slippery feel that lasts and lasts. Great for all kinds of sex, including anal, silicone lube may be used in water and with most sex toys, but is not recommended for use with silicone toys. Silicone lube is great for massage as well!

Hybrid Lube: Hybrid Lubricant offers you the best of both worlds. The base of a typical hybrid lube mainly consists of water with a small amount of added silicone to give you the silky-smooth feel of silicone that lasts, but the flexibility of a water-based lubricant.Hybrids offer long-lasting slickness when compared with water-based lubes and are fairly easy to clean (unlike pure silicone lubes).Users should avoid pairing hybrid lubes silicone sex toys, as this will rapidly degrade the toy. However, silicone-water hybrids can be safely used with latex condoms.

Oil-based Lube: Oil-based lubricants can destroy latex condoms. They are safe to use with condoms made from nitrile, polyisoprene or polyurethane.

Natural Oil-Based Lubricants can be found in your kitchen. The general rule is that if it’s safe for you to eat, it’s safe to put on your vulva and inside your vagina. The body can clear out natural oils more easily than petroleum-based lubricants (example Vaseline).  Natural oil-based lubricants such as corn oil, avocado oil,  olive oils,  butter (example Crisco) are great for genital massages, safe for the vagina, safe to eat, good for all forms of sexual play but the bad side is they will destroy latex condoms.

 

Synthetic Oil-Based Lubricants take longer to clear out of your body than natural oils. They are great for external masturbation, low-cost and easily accessible.However, these type of lubricants can irritate vulva and destroy latex condoms.
