When it comes to a great sex life, it is related to a lot of exploration! Today, we are here to discuss about different types of lubes which could enhance your sexual relationship and get you head over heels in bed.
At times, people could witness vaginal dryness which leads to discomfort or pain. the lubricants come into picture when such condition arises. A sex lube is a gel or a liquid which is applied during intercourse to moisten the vaginal area. It can also be applied to the partner’s penis to make it more slippery for a smooth experience.
Here is the list of four types of basic lubes available in market:
- Water based lubricants
These are the most common types of lubes available in market. They do not interfere with sensitive skin or oral sex. They are usually tasteless and feel like natural lubrication. This is because they are formulated with water base.
Since they are water based, they tend to be absorbed quickly and dry out soon. One plus point with water based lube is that they are condom friendly, unlike many oil based lubes.
- Oil based lubes
If you do not prefer re-application of lube during the act, you may prefer oil based lubes. They can contain plant based oils (olive oil) or synthetic oils. They are totally not compatible with condoms and cause to tear them too.
They can also have a risk of staining clothes. Oil based lubes is great for people who are in a long term relationship and do not use condoms on a regular basis.
- Silicon based sex lubricants
They are the ones that often contain no water. They tend to feel different from the rest because unlike water and oil based lubes, they cannot be absorbed. They are absolutely safe to use with condoms. Also, they are known to spice up your sex life as they tend to last longer and need no re-application.
We suggest to use medically approved lubes! Substances like petroleum and glycerine shall be avoided because they could disturb the pH balance of your vagina.
Sexual health is of utmost importance, therefore, whatever we choose shall be done wisely!
