Lubricants are a great means of combating embarrassing issues such as vaginal dryness and uncomfortable penetration, offering you and your partner the opportunity to enjoy more intense and intimate foreplay and intercourse. There are three main types of sexual lubricant available: water-based, silicone-based and oil-based. Water-based lubricants are the most popular form of personal lubricant, as they are the easiest to use and clean, and are suitable for all forms of sexual activity, allowing for smoother penetration during vaginal and anal sex, and adding a bit of extra spice to oral sex, particularly if you buy a flavoured lubricant.
Silicone-based sexual lubricants are a popular alternative to water-based lubricants as they are longer-lasting, making them ideal for prolonged sexual activity and anal sex... However, they are not suitable for use with silicone sex toys, although they can be used with non-silicone sex toys and latex condoms. Oil-based lubricants such as Vaseline and vitamin E oil are a less common alternative, as they cannot be used alongside latex condoms or rubber sex toys - but they remain a fantastic choice for solo sex sessions or couples in monogamous relationships who no longer use condoms. Please be aware that if you are prone to yeast infections, you should avoid lubricants which contain glycerine.
Personal lubricants are the ideal solution for anyone suffering from the common issue of vaginal dryness, enhancing sex between you and your partner as well as masturbation. To avoid experiencing any allergic reactions when using personal lubricants, we recommend checking the list of contents prior to use. Choosing the right sexual lubricant for you is easy - simply decide what you’re likely to be using it for, and pick the lubricant which best suits your needs. Lubricant is the ideal remedy for any couple finding sexual intercourse difficult, and the right lubricant for you could be just a few questions away – simply speak to your doctor or our friendly customer service team to discuss your options, and you could be on the path to enhanced sexual fulfilment in no time at all!
