How to Use Lube

Posted by SEO Team on

Lube is an essential product that can totally change your sex life, in a positive direction. Lubehelps create a more pleasurable experience for you and your partner, but choosing the right lube for you depends on a few factors.

Consider the following: the type of sex you’re having; the kinds of safe sex practices you’re employing; the kinds of materials the sex toys you’re using might be made of, and your personal preferences regarding thicker or thinner lube during penetration or genital play.

We’ve learned that doctors recommend we carefully consider the pH level of the sexual lubricant(s) we’re using (especially for women) because lube can prompt changes in pH levels in the wrong direction, and as a result you may experience yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis following usage. Those having receptive anal sex need pH levels different from what’s found in traditional lube and should be thicker to protect the skin of anal walls and sphincters. The proper pH level will ensure enjoyment and adventure, which is why we recommend special attention to this aspect. 

Silicone- and Water-Based vs. Oil-Based Lubricants

If you choose to use condoms, it’s important to know which ingredients work best with which products. For example, many people don’t realize that oil-based lubricants can’t be used with condoms because the oil presents barrier-degrading qualities, breaking down the condom during sex. Silicone and water-based lubes are best suitable for safer sex with condoms. , In addition to being the right fit for sex with condoms, these kinds of lubes can also help prevent condom breakage, as a worst case scenario. If you have sensitive skin, choose a lube that restores and rejuvenates, and if lube will be getting into your mouth, focus on yummy flavoured lubricants to ensure for good taste. 

If you’re having trouble deciding between water-based lubes and thicker silicone lubes, you can also consider hybrid lubes, which provide a happy medium. 

It’s important to use lube effectively, and while vulvas frequently generate their own natural lubricant, that's not always the case. Many women report losing this ability as they age, so it’s nice to have friction-removal lube on hand. The same is true if your body has trouble getting wet—lube will help eliminate vaginal dryness. Partners need to ensure they have the correct-sized condom, and we suggest putting a little lube inside to ensure for better comfort and ease. Last, if you enjoy anal play, you’ll definitely want to consider some lube for ease, as our derrière doesn't offer much natural lubrication.

Lube can also be used for fun and massage time as it can be used for both massaging skin and penetrating your partner. We recommend both silicone and water-based lubricants for this purpose.
