Why Lube Matters 

Lubricants are an important part of sex as they can help alleviate discomfort caused by dryness while also enhancing pleasure during sex. Without lube, certain activities like anal penetration can be painful or even dangerous due to increased friction that can lead to tearing or infection. The best way to defend against these issues is by applying a little bit of the right lube. Lubes come in all sorts of textures and varieties and provide different sensations than natural lubrication does. On top of that, some lubes even provide therapeutic benefits, such as improving blood flow for better arousal or reducing sensitivity for those who experience premature ejaculation. You can explore flavours, hot & cold, or even numbing sinsations to help in certain sexual acts like anal exploration.

Choosing the Right Lube 

When choosing the right type of lubricant for you and your partner, think about what kind of activities you plan on engaging in and what kinds of sensations they will bring you. For example, water-based lubricants are great for intercourse but may not last as long as other types during extended play sessions like solo masturbation or anal play. Silicone-based lubes tend to last longer than water-based ones but should not be used with silicone toys because they can degrade them over time. Oil-based lubricants last longer than both water-and silicone-based ones but can increase the risk of vaginal infections since oil is difficult for your body to break down naturally.

Water-based Lubricants

Probably the most common lubricant on the market is water based. When questioning what lubricants are the most versatile with toys and partners water based lubricants are sure to increase your pleasurable experience. Women typically find it less irritating then silicone based lubricants. And most importantly, it can be used with condoms! Water-based lubricants are also the easiest lubricants to clean up after. Most water-based lubricants wont stain sheets and is very easy to wash off! The only real draw back is you might need to reply lubricant when going for those all-night pleasure times.

Silicone-based Lubricants

If you are looking for a longer-lasting lubricant with a thicker texture, silicone lubricant might be the choice for you! This is one best options to use for shower and anal sex. Its thicker texture will keep it from washing or dripping off and will provide a more pleasurable experience. Most silicone lubricants are also safe to use with condoms. Using a couple of drops can greatly increase your sexual experience!

The biggest downside to silicone lubricant is its incapability with sex toys, specifically silicone-based sex toys. Using silicone-based lubricants with sex toys can break down the materials used on sex toys. This can lead to a shortened lifespan of the toy but also opens up the possibility of bacteria growing in the exposed layers of the toys.

Some women also find silicone lubricant can lead to irritation in the vaginal area if the lubricant isn't washed off immediately after sex. Always read the ingredient list in silicone-based lubricants to find out if that brand is right for you.

Oil Based Lubricant

Oil based lubricants can be a great option for anyone looking for a more natural-based lubricant. However, some women do experience irritation and sometimes inflammation in their vaginal area. 

Another thing to consider is how you plan on using it. Oil-based lubricants have been known to break down silicone products like condoms and popular silicone-based sex toys.

And the last thing to consider is their tendency to stain sheets! Typical oil-based lubricants are harder to clean than water and silicone-based lubricants.

Couples vs Solo Play Lube

When deciding which type of lube works best for couples' play versus solo play, consider what activity you'll be engaging in most often and whether it requires long-lasting slickness or something thinner and easier to clean up after use. For couples' play, thicker lubes with more viscosity tend to work well since they stay slippery longer during extended play sessions without needing reapplication (which can break up the mood). However, thin water-based lubricants may be better suited for solo masturbation since cleanup tends to be simpler than with thicker oils or creams. 

Whatever type of sexual activity you engage in—alone or with someone else—lubricant is an essential ingredient for success! By understanding why lube matters and how different types work differently depending on the situation at hand (couple's play versus solo), you can find the perfect formula that ensures maximum pleasure every single time! So don't forget—always get your lube on before getting busy! It'll make all the difference!
