A lubricant is any substance used in order to reduce friction between surfaces in mutual contact. Personal lubricants share the same purpose as those for machines -to reduce the friction! Less friction means more pleasurable sex and masturbation!
A 2013 study showed that 90% women felt positively about using lubricant among 2451 women aged between 18-68. As for men, lube not only boosts pleasure, but also prevents damage or abrasion to delicate tissues!
Vaginal Dryness can occur due to a variety of natural reasons such as lowered levels of oestrogen, hormonal imbalances or simply natural biology. Proper lubrication is necessary to avoid pain and cuts during sexual activity.
Flavoured lubes are highly recommended for oral sex. Pleasant scents such as banana improve the experience of oral sex considerably. Also, a good lube will not breach the balance of oral health.
Using the right kind of lube with your sex toy means having an effortless experience. But this might not always be the case so watch out for compatibility issues between toys and lubes. For example, silicone lubes are not compatible with silicone toys. Refer to the Lube and Sex Toys Compatibility Table to find out more.
Some lubricants have special features, such as warming, cooling and tingling. These lubes feel different when they come in contact with the skin. They can provide warm sensations, cool sensations or tingling sensations. Try one of these to experience slightly more than the standard lube.
