Sex lube is one of the best and quickest ways to enhance your sexual experience. It does not matter your age, gender, or sexual preference, adding a lubricant to your sexual arsenal will give you that extra boost of pleasure. There are several types of lubricants with the most common types being water based lube
and silicone based lube
. There are also hybrid and oil based lubricants as well. Each of these types of lube come with their own pros and cons. Water based lubes
are the more common type of lubricant available and for good reason. It is a very inexpensive and safest lubricant type. With the main ingredient being water, this lubricant is completely water soluble and will be completely absorbed by the body. Water based lube is also safe to use with all latex, condoms
, and sex toys
of all materials. The next most common type is silicone based. Silicone based lubes offer another safe alternative to water based. Silicone sex lubes
are typically made with just 2-3 ingredients and are completely waterproof. Silicone lube is great for fun in the spa, shower, and any other wet environment. Silicone is extremely slow to be absorbed by the body so it stays extremely slick on your body for extended periods of time. This makes for a great anal lube. Silicone lube is safe to use with all latex and condoms but only safe to use with hard sex toys. Never use a silicone sex lube with a silicone sex toy. Next, comes oil and hybrid lubricants which are typically used for masturbation purposes. You never want to use oil based lube with latex, it will degrade the latex every time. Oil based lube is great to be used with lambskin condoms. Sexual lubricants are a great addition no matter if you are using sex toys, masturbating, vaginal sex, or for anal sex. It's time to step up and get wet!
