Lube 101: A Quick Guide to All Things Lubricant

Ready To Get Your Lube On?

People often think lube is only needed for women who experience vaginal dryness or for those experimenting with booty play. Both are great reasons to use lube, but it is not ONLY for those purposes. 

Lube is great for heightening pleasure by making it pleasantly comfortable for pussy penetration. You can even use it alone to take solo-sex to a whole other level of bliss. 

We only carry body-safe lube free of parabens and glycerin to protect your most intimate and sensitive regions. 

There are four types of lube:

Water Based is the most common lube and is great for every solo and partner sex. It plays well with all toys and condoms. However, it will dry out as it is easily absorbed into the body. You can add a little bit of water with water-based lubes begin to gum up. (Tip! Keep a spray bottle near bed or play area to get everything slippery wet again.) It is also easy to clean off and rinse away, which is why it is not the preferred lube for shower, pool, hot tub or any water sex.

A lot of people prefer to use Silicone Lube over water based lube because it isn’t absorbed by the skin or mucus membranes, and therefore lasts much much much longer! It is also super slick which makes it great for booty play! The downside to silicone lube is that it cannot be used with silicone toys or it will ruin the silicone material. So be sure to know the materials of your sex toys! It is also a mess to clean up. You’ll need soap and water

Oil Based Lube is great for masturbation (especially for those with penises), anal massage and fingering  but should not be used for anal sex (silicone based lube is best for anal sex.) Oil based lube CAN NOT be used with latex condoms because the oil will breakdown the condom in 30 seconds. Be sure to avoid mineral oil based lubes and opt for food grade oils like coconut or almond oil.

A  Hybrid Lube is a great combination of water and silicone based lube, while giving you the best of both worlds. It has a longer lasting effect than water-based lube, will not wash off with water and will not damage a condom. Be sure to try a patch test on your silicone toys before use.

Now that you know the basics, it is now a matter of personal preference. Do you have allergies or sensitivities to ingredients in certain products? Do you prefer a vegan or organic option? Maybe something flavored that won’t throw off your vaginal pH? Perhaps you want to try a CBD lube?
