Slip n’ Slide with our Handy Lube Guide

0

by Chelsea

A good lubricant is a must-have to keep things slick and silky, but the options out there can be overwhelming. What’s the difference between silicone and water-based lube? What kind of lube is best for butt play? Is what I’m putting in my mouth actually edible? Fear not folks: our handy lube guide will turn you from a lube layman to a liquid legend!
aneros

   Water-Based Lube

For the lube novice, water-based lube is a great place to start. They’re easy to clean up, and wash right out of sheets and clothing.

Pros: Works great with latex condoms and a variety of toys, especially silicone toys.

Cons: Water-based lube is highly absorbent, which means it dries out more quickly, so you may have to re-apply/add saliva as needed.

We love Aneros Sessions, Wet Original, and of course the OG classic Astroglide Original.



 

Water-Based Glycerin-Free Lube
southbuttblissLove lube, but prone to yeast and urinary tract infections? The culprit could be glycerin, a slippery ingredient that can often throw off a
vagina’s pH balance. Glycerin-free lube is also a great option if you prefer something less sticky than your average lube.

Pros: Great for vaginal play and sensitive skin

Cons: Like the water-based lube, it requires re-application as it dries out.

We recommend Sliquid H20 and Sliquid Sassy (which is great for anal play). Southern Butter Bliss-On is infused with organic Calendula flowers, and comes in fragrance-free and peppermint and ginseng.

 

 

 

   Hybrid Lube

Hybrid lubes combine the long-lasting qualities of silicone lube with the easy clean-up of water-based lube. Get your swirl on with a hybrid, but be sure to spot-test your silicone toys before using a hybrid to make sure it won’t damage them.

sliqsilk

Pros: Best of both worlds! A smooth ride without the requisite stickiness.

Cons: May or may not affect your silicone toys. Taking time to do a spot test is necessary, but often a mood killer.

We’re enjoying Sliquid Silk, as well as Spunk Hybrid Lube and Gun Oil Force Recon, when you want to butch things up.

 

Silicone Lube

We can’t say enough good things about silicone lube. The texture is silky and smooth, and silicone is hypoallergenic, which is great for sensitive skin. Because it doesn’t absorb quickly, silicone lasts longer and requires less application. It’s great with latex and most toys, except for silicone.

uber

Pros: Great for anal play and water play. A little goes a long way!

Cons: Silicone lube can degrade silicone toys, so it’s a major no-no to use the two together.

We’re loving Uberlube and Pink, and of course you can never go wrong with something from the Pjur line of lubes.

 

sliquidcube

Flavored and Warming Lube

If you’re looking to spice up your BJ game, you might be interested in edible flavored lubes.    Or if you’re more into temperature play, you can give warming lubes a whirl, which are    especially fun when applied to your nipples.

Pros: Puts a fun twist on oral sex!

Cons: Always spot test, as they could irritate sensitive skin. Also, we’ve tasted some gnarly    flavored lubes in our day, so give it a taste test before slathering it all over your body.

Try Sex Tarts for fruity flavor or the Sliquid Lip Lickers Lube Cube Sampler for some variety.    To heat things up, give  System JO H2O Warming lube a whirl.

 

 

Oil-Based Lube

If you’re looking for a creamier texture, consider giving oil-based lubes a try. These are great for hand jobs and anal sex, as they last a long time. However, since oil degrades latex, these are NOT RECOMMENDED for safe sex.

boybutter

Pros: Long-lasting, great for anal and water play. A must-have for hand jobs and masturbation.

Cons: Incompatible with latex condoms, hard to wash out of clothes and sheets.

You can’t go wrong with Shaft, or the perennial classic Boy Butter.
