The Low-Down on Lubes: H20 Lubricant
 
Mar 2, 2016

Everything’s better when wet. The Steve Miller Band thought so…do you? We think so. Using lube may be the best way to invigorate your sex life, it is a simple and inexpensive way to liven things up or make it easier and more fun to use a condom. Consumers have said that lubricants enhanced their foreplay as well as their sex and intimacy overall.

 

Using lubricants is an easy way to amp up your pleasure during sex. Lubricants can increase pleasure or reduce pain during sex. They can make sexual activity more slippery, sensual, and fun. They are great to use when exploring the world of sex toys or trying to add a little twist to your sex routine. They can add new dimensions to your sexual experience with new textures, tastes, and sensations. Rubbing lube on your partner is a way to increase intimacy during foreplay. Light a candle and try rubbing flavored lube on each other to get things going.


It's important to find a lubricant that's right for you since they can interfere with certain contraceptives and sex toys. All lubricants can be grouped into three categories: water-based, silicone-based, and oil-based. Any lubricant can cause irritation, so be sure to test it on a small part of the inner labia first. Wash the area with mild soap if you develop a burning sensation or topical irritation, then try another lubricant when the irritation clears up.

 

Water-based lubricants the best for use with condoms. Since the #1 cause of condom breakage is a lack of proper lubrication, using lube can help you and your partner achieve a higher level of satisfaction in a safer way. Lube provides a valuable service when used in conjunction with a condom– reducing heat from friction and significantly decreasing the likelihood of a condom breaking.

 

H20 lubricants also have the added benefit of leaving your skin clean, silky smooth and free of any residue. If they do dry out, you can add a little more or reactivate them with water.

 

Water-based lubricants are also the most versatile of all the lubricant types as they are safe for all sexual activities, even for use with silicone sex toys. These are the most popular choice of lubricant, being inexpensive, non-staining and can be ingested in small amounts during sex. They are also safe to use with latex condoms and diaphragms. Water-based lube is easy to clean up and is typically safe for sensitive skin.

 

Maybe start with off with Astroglide Sensual Strawberry, a flavored lubricant can really add a different dynamic. Water-based and condom compatible, this is a tasty way to have some fun.

Oil-based lubricants may be more appealing to people in monogamous relationships who don't use condoms or other latex products. They are great for hand jobs, but not great for use with condoms as they can increase the likelihood of breakage and slipping. Oil may also create tiny holes in the latex. Oil-based lubricants can also be messy and difficult to clean up because of their thick texture. Boy Butter Original is an organic coconut-oil based lubricant.

 

Boy Butter Extreme is an oil-based lubricant made for men with desensitizing 5% Benzocaine, a local anesthetic. This prolonging climax lubricant, when applied to the head and shaft of penis or anus, delays ejaculation. Its ingredients are blended like real butter resulting in a creamy lube that numbs the fun parts and is long-lasting.

 

Silicone-based lubricants last longer than water-based ones. Silicone lube is waterproof, so you can use it in the bathtub, shower, or Jacuzzi. It can't be used with silicone sex toys because of silicone-on-silicone reactions, but you can use them with latex contraceptives and sex toys not made of silicone. Keep in mind that some women are easily irritated by silicone, so test it out first. Also, silicone-based lubricants are harder to wash off bedding and clothing and are more expensive than water-based ones.

 

Trojan Lubricants Tonight is a silicone-based lubricant made by Trojan. It’s a Trojan his and hers lubricant that will allow couples seduce each other with sensations of warming, cooling, and/or tingling two bottles in one amazing night. It's no secret that foreplay is the key to unlocking your pleasure.

Whether you're young, old, male, female, straight or gay, there's a lube for you to try. Young couples learning to be intimate with each other or older couples trying to spice things up can benefit from trying to using a new lube product. To make things extra special on a honeymoon or to loosen up someone who needs some attention, a lube could do the trick.

 

Most of all, have fun with the lube that you choose. Once you know you have one that fits your needs you can relax and play! We all need sex to stay healthy. Feeling like you’re in a rut? Maybe lube it up and check out these amazing health benefits of sex at Condomania.
