Lubricant enhances the body’s natural lubrication, and can be applied to any part of the skin for a slippery sensation. It's a game changer for intimacy. So, picking the right Lubricant is a great easy additive to your intimate life. Let's face it, there is a lot of Lubricants out there, and we know we are not the only place you can find them. We strive to put on our shelves the Brands and Products that, in our humble opinion, deserve to be brought forward.
Choosing the right one
Silicone, water-based, Oil-based, flavoured, cooling, warming, and everything in between. Selecting lubricant can be intimidating if you're unsure of your preferences or needs. Start by thinking about how you'll use the lube - with silicone toys, for anal play, or for intimacy. Discovering a suitable product for your unique situation will enhance your intimate experiences.
Water-based Lubricants are popular because they’re latex-compatible, work with all sex toy materials, and the body flushes out the lubrication easily. They are widely available, offer a range of thickness and flavours, and are safe for internal use. However, they can get sticky when they dry up. Re-application or spraying with a little bit of water can reinvigorate the slippery factor, but ruin the mood. ('Hold On a second...just need to find that bottle...) <--- That's the ruin the 'mood' moment.
A place to start: Water based lubricant from Satin by Sliquid are favourites of ours, their product lasts longer than one would expect from an all natural, water based lube. Also check out Intimate Earth Hydra Glide.
Silicone lubricants endure and avoid stickiness over time. Are you aware that most condoms are coated in silicone-based lube? Silicone lube provides a lasting, smooth sensation because it doesn't dry up like water-based lubes. Users can apply significantly less silicone lube, making it more cost-effective.
Silicone lubricants are safe to use internally, and they will eventually wear out and flush away from the body naturally.
Oil-Based Lubricants sometimes get a bad rap. They are not compatible with latex barriers and certain materials used in sex toys. Oil-based lubes have a funky feel compared to water or silicone-based ones, and they're perfect for self-pleasure and other sexy shenanigans! Imagine sensual massages! They still gradually slip away from your bod, just a bit slower than water or silicone lubes.
Bonus: dry skin will soak this up.
Sensitive Skin and Adverse Reactions to Lube
People with sensitive skin may find some ingredients in lube irritating. If you’re often sensitive to chemical ingredients, you may wish to avoid propylene glycol and parabens. It’s impossible to say for sure whether or not you’ll react to a lubricant, but opting for something water-based, made with organic and naturally sourced ingredients, and fewer ingredients in general, can help reduce the risk of a reaction in folks with that may have some sensitivities.
EXTRA: Lubricants made with silicone often don’t contain preservatives.Therefore; there is less risk of an adverse reaction.
Also - Avoid Flavoured Lubricants - it's the sweetener....
How To Use Lubricants
Lubricants enhance intimacy by creating new sensations and opening doors to different types of play, whether you're alone or with a partner. They can be used with various toys, like vibrators, dildos, and anal toys, to add to your experience. <--- That's the polite way to say 'squirt that stuff everywhere and enjoy rubbing your bits on whoever or whatever you want.
