What is Lubricant anyway?
Lubricant gels are specially formulated liquids that help with friction during sexual intercourse, sex toy penetration or intimate massages. They help lessen the friction that builds up during skin-to-skin contact. Even during penetration under water using a silicone lubricant is still ideal.
What type of lubricant gel should you buy?
That in itself is a complex question. The answer is within this question: what do you want the lubricant gel for?
Depending on what you want the sex lubricant products for there are 4 mainstream lubes choices to choose from;
- Water Based Lubricant – The main ingredient is water. Can come in regular, warming lube, cooling lube, flavored lube and natural.
- Silicone Based Lubricant – The main ingredient is silicone. Can contain numbing, relaxing or arousal ingredient mostly used for anal and under water penetration
- Hybrid Based Lubricant – Main ingredients is water and silicone – Can be used for all over body massages, also can be used for partnered sex and occasionally with sex toys (must be premium silicone)
- Natural Based Lubricant – The main ingredient is Water and Aloe (all natural ingredients) can come with flavors but most are paraben, glycerin-free and made of natural plants: such as licorice root, ginkgo Biloba, ginseng and aloe!
A Breakdown of the 5 Reasons for Lubricants:
Wet Original Water Based Lubricant: This is the most natural and easy to use a lubricant to date by far. This is a basic water based lubricant that can be used for every type of sexual interaction. It’s the best lube for men, best lube for women and it is the best lubricant for sexual intercourse. This water based lubricant gel is also the best lube for masturbation as it works with all types of toy materials and easily cleans after the session!
Shunga Toko Silicone Lubricant: It is one of the oldest and bestselling silicone lubricants on the market. With no taste and no smell it is absolutely the perfect silicone lube to use. Silicone lube is the best lubricant to use for water play sex. Because the formula is thicker than water based it tends to stick better and provides slick formula which is also a great lube for anal sex and anal penetration.
Intimate Earth Pussy Willow Silk Hybrid Glide: Prized for their natural ingredient list I cannot forget to mention this Glide. It is a hybrid which combines both water and silicone bases to make an extra slick and fun lubricant gel. You can even add your own saliva and it makes it even slipperier. Not only is this a great foreplay lubricant it is also a great sexual lube and its perfect lubrication for women with the added benefits of Licorice root.
Wet Essentials 95 Organic Based Aloe Vera Lubricant: If you require a lubricant without the additives you can grab this lubricant gel as the base is derived from Aloe Vera. This is not only a great lubricant base it is a natural skin moisturizer and healer. This is a condom safe lube. It is also great for aging women who require a bit more moisture from vaginal lubrication products.
Swiss Navy Water Based Flavored Lubricant: This lubricant has been tested through time and it still comes out on top. The Swiss navy has one of the most complex lubricant lines to date. Over the years I have had great reviews about their lubricant gel. The Flavored versions are delicious and fat free. They give some of the best aromas to sexually charged rooms. Use this type of lubricant while nibbling your partner for an extra delicious treat. Not only is it a sex lube it is also a great condom safe lube too!
How to Choose?
Which lube should I choose? Choosing a lubricant gel really depends on what you are going to use it for. Let’s say for example you only want the lubricants for sexual foreplay, partnered sexual play or solo sex toy play. The best lube to use is a water based lube. How long does water based lube last? You can apply as much as you need as often as you need it. Plus you can get as messy as you want whatever you want because it washes off easily with soap and water and does not leave stains. It is considered the best personal lubricant.
On the flip side if you are looking forward to some serious anal penetration either by your partner or anal sex toys for prostate play or backdoor pleasure you should reach for a silicone lubricant because they are much thicker and require less frequent reloads. This way you can get complete penetration without the friction between skin and toy. Can you do anal without lube? Surely this is advised against as the more lubed it is the greater the pleasure.
PLEASE DO NOT USE SILICONE LUBRICANTS WITH SILICONE TOYS!
What to watch out for!
There are tons of offers in the lube department. Some people don’t realize how to look at the labels to actually learn what is inside the lubricant gel. And well, that can cause issues you didn’t even think twice about. Think of it as putting olive oil in your car instead of motor Oil. What’s that going to do to your poor car? Well the same goes for the lubricant gel you may or may not put inside your body:
- Glycerin based
- Nonoxynol-9 based
- Petroleum based
- Propylene glycol based
- Chlorhexidine gluconate based
Using lubricant gel with these ingredient bases can harm you or your skin. In women it can hinder her PH balance in vagina causing her to plummet lower than necessary. So please consider the ingredients or side effects of lubricant gel.
