How to Choose The Right Lube for You and Your Partner
 
May 16, 2016

It’s safe to say that we’re totally obsessed with lube. Not only does lube make sex feel amazing - period, it also makes sex with condoms safer and more pleasurable by reducing unwanted friction. Not to mention, experimenting with lube is a lot of fun! When it comes to maximizing your pleasure, finding the perfect lube can be a complete game changer. But, like condoms, not all lubes are one size fits all. We all have our individual preferences, which can make choosing the right lube a confusing experience.

 

 

Not sure which lube is right for you and/or your partner? Here’s a few questions to ask yourself.

 

Are you planning on using the lube vaginally?

 

From water based to silicone, there are lots of vaginal lube options to choose from. However, if you or your partner is prone to yeast infections, look for an option that is glycerine free.

 

Sliquid Sassy Lubricant is a great place to start - especially if you’ve found previous lubes you’ve tried just “meh.” Sliquid Sassy is thick, gel-like, water based lubricant with added plant cellulose to make it extra long lasting. It’s also hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, sugar-free (glycerin and glycol), paraben-free, ph neutral and uniquely blended to emulate your body's own natural lubrication.

 

Are you or your partner sensitive?

 

If yes, you’re in luck - there are lots of options when it comes to sensitive lube. The key is to find products that are free of fragrances, sugars, glycerine and parabens. Pjur's Woman Nude is another water based lubricant with no additives- perfect for lovers who like a lube to be as naked and natural as their own bodies. No odor, perfume, or taste means no distractions, so you can fully lose yourself in the experience. Sliquid H2O and Astroglide Natural are also excellent options for people with sensitive parts.

 

Are you planning on having anal sex?

 

The anus doesn’t naturally lubricate itself, so lube is an absolute must for pleasure and safety. Look for lubes that are made with silicone or have a long-lasting silicone-like feel. One of our favourites is Pjur ORIGINAL Bodyglide - a long-lasting silicone lube that’s compatible with latex, polyurethane, and polyisoprene condoms and can also be used for skin conditioning and massage.

 

Not into silicone?

 

Boy Butter Clear with Invisigel is our highly concentrated silicone-alternative formula which is 100% water-based, non-staining, hypoallergenic, latex & vaginally safe. It looks, feels and acts exactly like silicone personal lubricants, but washes off with water alone from skin and fabric, it is a miracle how easy the clean up is.

 

What about oral sex?

 

Licking something flavorful can definitely turn up the heat on oral sex! From these cheeky honey bottle shaped Nature Lovin’ Flavoured Lubes to Sliquid Naturals Swirl Green Apple Lubricant, the flavored lube options abound. If your partner is ultra-sensitive, make sure you choose an option that’s free of potential irritants like sugar and glycerine.

 

Playing solo?

 

A great lube can take your next masturbation session to the next level. Our suggestions? Lube up with something rich and creamy like Boy Butter Original, an organic coconut-oil based cream form lubricant that outlasts silicone based products while washing off with water alone (just make sure that if you decide to use it with condoms that you use non-latex condoms only) or Astroglide Warming Liquid that offers a gentle warming sensation with your touch.

 

Now that you have all the right info, go forth and enjoy, slippery, pleasure enhanced, safer sex!
