Different Types of Lubricants That You Should Know
There are many different types of sexual lubricant, and they all have their individual uses. Here is a guide to help you decide what type of lube to use for what occasion.
Many women like to use vaginal lubricant as it helps to avoid dryness and pain during intercourse, and this makes it more pleasurable for their partner, too. Dryness can be caused by many factors, such as medication, and changes in hormones such as before or after childbirth or following menopause. Vaginal lubricant can help to make sexual intercourse less painful and prevent itching and soreness afterward.
A water-based lubricant can be a good choice because it most closely resembles natural female lubrication. They are non-staining, which can be better for the bedsheets, too. They can dry out during use but can be fun to re-apply. This is the best type of lubricant to use if you are also using a condom because it does not damage the rubber.
These are fun to use if you are playing in the water as they do not wash off as easily as water-based lubricants, which means you can have hours of fun in the bath. It also means that you don’t have to stop and re-apply so it won’t spoil your fun during a long love-making session. However, you should avoid an oil-based lubricant if you are using condoms as the oil will corrode the rubber, which will increase the risk of it breaking. These lubricants are also prone to staining the bedsheets.
These lubricants often contain no water. They are long-lasting and can be great fun. They are compatible with condoms, and unlike other types of lubricant, they are not absorbed by the body. However, because they are so long-lasting, they can be difficult to wash off. They should not be used with sex toys as they break down the silicone, leaving them gummy and less fun to use.
This can be fun to use and comes in a variety of different flavors, such as this Strawberry Flavored Passion Lubricant. It is great if you want to enhance your oral sex experience or add another dimension to your bedroom antics. This can be great to experiment with, but it tends to be used as a novelty item rather than an everyday lubricant. Some people even say that it does not enhance the flavor as well as a more natural experience might. It is also prone to being a little more sticky than other lubricants.
If you want to play at the backdoor, you will need to use a lubricant, such as this Clear Passion Anal Lubricant. The anus does not secrete natural moisture regardless of how turned on the recipient is, and anal pleasure is even more enjoyable if it is not dry or painful.
You can use a general lubricant for anal pleasure, but other lubricants are designed specifically for this purpose. They tend to contain a numbing agent such as benzocaine, which works to release the discomfort of anal sex. However, this can cause a lack of sensation and therefore make it less pleasurable. Some numbing agents can numb all the body parts they come into contact with, so proceed with caution.
Premature Ejaculation Lubricant
Lubricant that has a numbing effect can also be used by men who want to reduce their chances of suffering from premature ejaculation. This has a similar ingredient to that found in anal lubricants. It works best if it is used by a man who also wears a condom. This is so the numbing effect is not transferred to his partner, who may then find vaginal intercourse less pleasurable. If a condom is being used, it is best to stick to a water-based premature ejaculation lubricant to avoid damaging the rubber.
Pleasure-enhancing lubricant often contains ingredients such as L-Arginine, which is believed to enhance pleasure to whatever area of the body it is applied to. These lubricants often work by warming up or cooling down body parts to encourage a tingling sensation for those seeking extra pleasure. They can be either water or oil-based depending on your preference. These are great to experiment with but best to use sparingly so you can get used to the sensation and see if you like it. Over-application could spoil the mood.
Lubricant can add a lot of pleasure and variety to sexual intercourse. Try a few of them for yourself and see which ones you like best.
