We all want our sexual experiences to be powerful and explosive. It’s why we purchase sex toys, sexy outfits, and prophylactics so we can have the best experience with our partner. One aspect of sexual intercourse that is often overlooked is lubrication. Some couples don’t even think about lubrication until they are mid-intercourse. Suddenly, you and your partner are left with irritation and sexual frustration.
But lubrication isn’t just for penetration, either. It’s something you might need when you’re masturbating alone, using a new sex toy, or simply not producing enough natural lubrication on your own. Lube is an essential tool in everyone’s sex toy arsenal.
There are many things that can contribute to lack of wetness. Stress, medications, birth control pills, and hormonal fluctuations are the most common reasons. Sometimes the mind is willing and the body won’t cooperate. Buying lube gives you the slippery wetness you need so you can have the sex you crave.
Choose the Right Lube for You
Water Based Lubricants
Water based lubricants are the safest lubes that you can find (aside from your own natural lubrication). These lubes are not damaging to condoms and they are easier to flush out of the body, as opposed to oils.
Because they’re made primarily from water, they can be used with any type of sex toy, regardless of the material it’s made from. It doesn’t leave stains on your sheets or an oily residue on your skin.
Silicone Based Lubricants
These lubricants do not contain any water and lasts much longer than water based lubricants and is recommended for anal sex. It’s a thicker lube that feels amazing on the skin. Silicone-based lube also lasts longer so you don’t have to re-apply as often.
Because it’s made of silicone, it’s not recommended to use it on silicone, jelly, rubber, TPR/TPE, and other sex toys made of porous materials. You also shouldn’t use it on latex condoms as it can break down the latex and cause rips.
Flavor Based Lubricants
Flavor based lubes offer more than one use to them. While it is a great lubricant during sex, it is also a great tasting lubricant that you can add to your collection. These lubricants are great during oral sex.
Read the ingredients before applying a flavored lube to your vulva or vagina. Certain ingredients, like sugars, can disrupt the pH balance of your body and lead to yeast infections. If you use flavored lube and want to make sure it’s all gone, an intimate shower together after your oral sex fun might be the perfect option.
Stimulation Based Lubrication
Perhaps the most enjoyable out of all lubrication, stimulation based lubricants add extra sensation that sex toys, fingers, mouths, and bodies just can’t give you. These lubes contain warming and tingling sensations that add more fuel to your sexual fire. If you’re looking to heat things up or spice up your sex life, a stimulating lube may be the perfect solution.
Lack of natural wetness and lubricant doesn’t have to kill the moment. Just like a sex toy can give you stimulation you want, lubricant can give you the wetness you need. Find your new favorite lube at Caliente Adult Superstore.
Frequently Asked Questions about Lubricant
Q: How do I know which lube is best for me?
A: To figure out the best lube for you, think about when you’ll use the lube. Silicone-based lube is perfect for anal sex and getting busy in the shower. Flavored lube is a fun addition to oral sex while stimulating lube can be great for kinky play or masturbation. Water-based lube is a safe option for any situation so always keep that around.
Q: How much lube should I use? Is it possible to use too much?
A: Most people, especially if you haven’t used lubricant before, usually don’t use enough. Yes, it’s possible to use too much, but not using enough is a bigger problem. For masturbation with your hand, you only need enough to lightly coat your skin and make it easy for your hand or fingers to glide over your body. During anal play, put lube on your anal toy or partner’s body and lube on your anus. You’ll need to experiment to find the perfect amount for you, but remember you can always add more.
