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.

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.

Power Up by Jacking Off

by Chelsea

Leave it to the brilliant minds at PornHub to harness the natural power of masturbation to save the planet!

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.

The Best Gifts For Guys

0

by thepleasurechest

Think sex toys are just for women? You’re in for a surprise. And so is he if you give him something sexy for the holidays. Here are some of our favorite toys for boys…

Fun Factory Cobra Libre
High tech gadgets are a dime a dozen during the holidays. But this is probably the only “penis head stimulator” you’ll find under the tree! Fun Factory’s innovative Cobra Libre is waterproof, rechargeable and allows you to choose from a seemingly endless variety of escalating, pulsing, thumping, buzzing and wavelike sensations. Plus, it looks like a race car!
$149.95
Tenga Flip Hole
Sometimes the best gifts are the most mysterious. From the outside, the Tenga Flip Hole looks like a futuristic flashlight or modernist paperweight. Open it up and you’ll discover an ultra-soft masturbation sleeve with a totally unique tunnel full of stimulating nubs, curves and ridges. Easy to clean and fun for both solo and partner play.
$99.95
 
Velv’Or J’Naja Cock Ring
There are so many cock rings to choose from, but here’s a ring to rule them all. This elegant, ergonomic ring is made from a unique nylon fiber, cozy enough to be worn all day. It’s also got a curved nub that gently and firmly massages the perineum for enhanced pleasure.
$54.95
Duet Vibrating Cockring
If you believe it is better to give and receive, you can’t go wrong with this vibrating ring. The Duet has two vibes– one below to buzz his balls and perineum, and one on top to satisfy his partner. The soft, stretchy elastomer surface is covered in pleasing nubs for added excitement.
$44.95
SpareParts Pete Trunks
If your partner is trans, a pair of packing underwear may be just the right fit. SpareParts makes a range of garments for packing, but we’re partial to the Pete Trunks, a sexy set of boxer briefs, specially designed to securely hold a packer. They’re made of a lightweight, breathable material and can be worn comfortably under daily clothes.
$39.95
Sidekick Sleeve
Here’s a great stocking stuffer for the horny dude on your gift list. This super-stretchy masturbation sleeve is amazingly versatile. The reversible design allows him to choose between a smooth and slick stroke or a ridge-filled ride. The open-ended design means you can play too.
$13.95
Liquid Silk Lubricant
If you plan to play over the holidays, it’s best to keep some lube on hand. We love Liquid Silk because it looks and feels just like male ejaculate. It’s a favorite among trans guys and folks who enjoy gender play. Creamy, long lasting and glycerin-free.
$1.95-$18.95
