Don’t let friction get in the way of your good time. For moments of dryness, for use with sex toys, or to make sex even more enjoyable, there’s always lube. There are several kinds of personal lubricants, all of which have their pros and cons. The best personal lubricant for you will be body-safe and designed to meet your sexual needs.
Learn about the different types of personal lubricant here so you can make a better-informed decision as to which is best for you and/or your partner.
Water-Based Personal Lubricants
Water-based lubes stand out as the preferred type of lube for several reasons. They are safe for pretty much all your sexual needs, including intercourse, with sex toys, for masturbation, and for use with condoms. Water-based personal lubricants also tend to be best for those who experience vaginal irritation or have sensitive skin. What’s more, they’re unlikely to leave stains on sheets and clothing.
Oil-Based Personal Lubricants
When compared to water-based lubricants, oil-based lubes tend to last longer. They’re also good for shower sex and can be used for sensual massage.
One of the downsides to oil-based lubes, however, is that their ingredients may cause latex condoms to dissolve and break. Additionally, oil-based lubricants are not always compatible with sex toys. Always read the instructions and information on the packaging prior to use.
Silicone-Based Personal Lubricants
Long-lasting and super slippery, silicone lubricants can be great for both masturbation and penetrative sex. They tend to require less reapplication than the other types of lubes, which makes using them a bit more convenient. Keep in mind, however, that silicone-based lubricants don’t wash off easily, so cleanup could be a little bit of a hassle.
Some Final Notes on Using Lube
When searching for the best personal lubricant, it’s best to steer clear of ones that contain parabens, mineral oils, sugars, colors, or other additives. Personal lubricants that are made with natural, plant-based ingredients are typically going to be the safest option, but even natural ingredients may cause a reaction in certain individuals. Be aware of any allergies or sensitivities you might have before purchasing a lubricant and always check the ingredient list.
Also bear in mind that some personal lubricants are designed to have a warming, tingling and/or cooling effect. Knowing this going in is good information, as it could help offset some initial panic if you’re not expecting these extra sensations.
