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!

   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.

Meet the WankBand, wearable device that, according to the site, allows you to “love the planet while you love yourself”. A kinetic charger inside the band creates and stores energy while you jack off that you can then use to power your cell phone, your laptop, or any other devices. Though the Wankband isn’t available yet, PornHub is recruiting Be(a)ta testers.

Your move, Apple Watch.

Swedish luxury pleasure brand LELO has teamed up with New York‟s most sophisticated boutique, Pleasure Chest, to create a sexy and sensual sex toy gallery called Discover the Colors of Love, to be revealed on Tuesday July 14th with a star-studded celebrity extravaganza.

The exhibit, the first of its kind, will be officially opened by partygoers including Real Housewives of New York star, author and Emmy winning producer Carole Radziwill, the Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger and celebrity couple, of Starship Troopers fame and the star of the recent LELO movie Beyond the Wave, Casper Van Dien and his wife Catherine Oxenberg, star of Dynasty.

Throughout July and August LELO aims to make New Yorker‟s summer even hotter by selecting 2 lucky winners to win a luxury LELO gift set containing a selection of sexy, sensual LELO products.

Casper Van Dien said: “This is going to be a great night and one of the hottest this summer. LELO is known for its innovations, not only in design but also for breaking the barriers of what people expect; after all they are the first sex toy maker to push in to the movie industry. This exhibition is going to be something really special, not to mention the great party too.”

Sila Songkran, Creative Director at LELO said: “We don’t just design pleasure products, we design the entire experience of owning them. We always think to ourselves ‘how can we make it a pleasurable product, even when the product is not in use?’ This is a piece of art, so we decided to turn the space at Pleasure Chest into an art gallery. We want visitors to step into the space and not only view our products, but to feel the emotions as well.”

The partygoers will be treated to canapés provided by New York‟s renowned caterer Sherry Grimes from Anderson’s 1949 –Brooklyn, plus signature cocktails created specifically for LELO and not forgetting the most coveted custom designed LELO limited edition luxury gift bags . DISCWOMAN, a company dedicated to showcasing the wealth of female DJ talent has secured none other than celebrated New York favorite, DJ BearCat, to provide some chilled-out beats.

Patty Callahan, LELO USA P.R. Marketing & Communications Manager, says: “This gallery emulates all things LELO, all things luxury, all things pleasurable. You can literally feel the love in this meticulously custom created space. The window displays have actually stopped traffic… and in New York that’s saying something!

Robin Jennings, from Pleasure Chest, said: “We’re excited to have joined forces with LELO for this incredible Pop-Up! LELO’s luxurious pleasure products compliment the chic yet inclusive atmosphere of the Upper East Side Pleasure Chest. We’re very much looking forward to the highly anticipated launch party!”

Anyone who visits Pleasure Chest‟s shop before the 31st August (located at 1150 2nd Avenue, New York, NY 10065) can see LELO‟s Discover the Colors of Love gallery and take part in the competition by taking a selfie with a LELO product and uploading it to Instagram tagging @lelo_official with #LeloLove.
