Dec 4, 2015

It burns, it hurts, and it feels really uncomfortable. It doesn’t really feel pleasurable anymore. That’s definitely not how sex is supposed to feel. Sex is supposed to be easy, right? Well, maybe not easy but there are things to make it a little easier and a lot less painful.


Vaginal dryness is actually a really common problem. In fact, 40% of women report not being wet enough for sex. There are a few reasons why your vagina is not getting wet enough for sex. One common reason for this is low estrogen levels which can be caused by menopause, child birth, breast feeding, and smoking. Certain medications can also cause dryness. Another cause of this is irritants such as soaps, douches, and perfumes. It all depends on how sensitive you are. Lastly, one of the most common reasons for being dry is not being sufficiently aroused before sex begins.


Whatever the reason is there is a solution to the problem, lube. Lube is the slippery stuff you need to keep things going. Lubricants can keep you wet enough during sex no matter the level of dryness you have. Vaginal dryness is not the only reason for using a lubricant though. Lube is a necessity if you are going to have anal sex. The anus does not produce any sort of lubricant on its own so that means you need to provide your own. Lubricant can provide extra stimulation during sex and can be a great way to spice things up again. There are also flavored lubricants that can be used for a little extra something during oral sex. There are lubes that you can use in the shower. Lubes that you can use with toys. As you can see, there are a lot of different kinds of lube on the market these days. So I am going to give you a rundown of the different types of lubricant and what they can be used for.


K-Y His and Hers lube is a great product for a few different reasons. First, it can really spice things up. The blue bottle, his, provides him with a warming sensation. The purple bottle, hers, provides her with a cooling sensation. When you put the two together you get an incredible sensation for the both of you. It can also help her stay wet, and him stay hard, by increasing the level of arousal. The aroma of K-Y His and Hers, alone, can be enough to arouse both of you. It can also be used as a massage oil which can obviously heat things up before sex. What makes this lube so great is that it easily washes off with water. It doesn’t feel sticky like some lubes do after they dry up. Once it dries you won’t even know that it was there. It is also safe to use with condoms.

Oral sex may or may not be your favorite thing to give. It can get kind of boring for those on the giving end. One type of slippery stuff that can help with this is flavored lubes. They come in different flavors, the most common are strawberry and cherry. The flavored lubes can help make things a bit more fun for those of you giving oral sex. Most of the lubes taste pretty good and make the surface a lot more slippery and easier to play with. The aroma of some of these lubes can also help stimulate you and your partner.


Lube also comes in handy when you are using toys. If you are going to be using lubricants on toys you need to first make sure the lube is safe to be used on toys. You should also be using a lubricant that is water soluble so that way you can clean your toys a lot easier.


Ride Bodyworx Silicone Lubricant by Sliquid is an excellent lube to use for playing in water. If you don’t know already, water is NOT a lubricant. If you are having a little fun by yourself in the bathtub, in the pool with your partner, or anywhere else in water, you can still use lubricant. You just need to make sure that the lube is silicon based. Water based lubes will not work in water, they will simply wash right off. Silicon based lubricants are the only lubes that will stay on in water. You need to be careful with these though because they can stain clothing or sheets. They are not meant to be easily rinsed off so they will not come off of sheets and clothing very easily, if at all.


As you can see there are a lot of different types of lubricants. There are ones that tingle, heat up, are used as massage oil, for anal, for when you are in water, and for toys. There are ones that stain and ones that can be rinsed away with ease. There are just so many out there and it’s hard to choose. Because there are so many out there, there are plenty to help you overcome any reason you have for needing lube. Whether it be vaginal dryness, anal sex, needing more stimulation, or to spice things up there are lubes for that! I hope you and your partner, toy or not, enjoy sex a little bit more with the help of some slippery stuff.
