In our opinion there isn’t a sexual experience that can’t be improved with a little bit of extra lubrication (and we should know… we’ve tried them all!)
For starters, it can make sex more comfortable, especially when you’re feeling a bit dry down there.
Dips in oestrogen levels throughout a woman’s monthly cycle can mean she is naturally less lubricated, which leave you feeling a bit low – let’s be honest.
The right lube not only makes things easier but it can also give you the confidence to be more creative and try new things.
Read on to discover 6 reasons why it’s time you got to grips with lube.
IT GETS THINGS MOVING
We’ve all been there. I know the exact situation you’re thinking of right now! You’re in bed, things are getting a bit hot and steamy but your vayjay doesn’t seem to be responding like usual.
There are loads of reasons why you might be a little dry, and all of them are completely normal. You might be feeling a bit anxious or stressed out, maybe you’re at a low point in your monthly cycle and your hormone levels have dipped a bit. Even some medications take an effect on your downstairs!
Whatever the cause, lube can help. It keeps things moving in the right direction, so you can focus on just being present and enjoying the moment without having to think about drying out!
If your partner is particularly well-endowed, or if you are on the smaller side, lube can also help you ease into things. And it’s always good to have some lube on hand if your trying something new, or if you’re less sexually experienced. Remember, there’s no shame in using lube.
IT CAN BE USED WITH SEX TOYS
The great thing about lube is its versatility. It’s perfect to use with your partner or even when you fancy a little ‘me time’.
One of our favourite ways to use it is with sex toys. Applying some lube to a vibrator can add a totally different fluid dimension to masturbation, helping you to climax more quickly and play around with new sensations and experiences.
It’s worth noting that any sex toy or vibrator that’s made of silicone will need a water-based lube as silicone-based lubricants can deteriorate soft rubber.
IT HELPS YOU TO KEEP GOING LONGER
As much as we all love a hot, spontaneous quickie, (and we really do), nothing beats those long, passionate sessions where time and your inhibitions go out the window and you really, let go.
To make sure chafing and dryness don’t spoil your fun, lube is a must. It helps keep things nice and fluid, so you can switch between positions, try new things and enjoy every single minute.
IT CAN STOP CONDOMS BREAKING
You might not think you need it, but using lube with condoms is actually a better idea than going without! Lube’s one mission is to help reduce friction and allow things to slide with ease. One of the key factors in broken condoms is too much friction. So the question is, why AREN’T you using lube with condoms?!
IT’S GOOD FOR WOMEN AND MEN
Lube isn’t just for women. It makes sex better for men too.
With all flavours available, why not try lubing up before going down on your partner? Not only does it make things a lot easier to handle but a new taste can add a really fun element into your foreplay routine!
IT MAKES FOREPLAY MORE FUN
Think lube is only for the main event? Think again. Adding a little lubrication early on is a great way to get things off to a good start.
There are loads of imaginative ways to use lube in your foreplay routine, but we’re particularly partial to a sensual massage.
Choose your favourite massage gel or lube. Warm it in your hands and then slowly work your way over your partner’s body, taking time over every curve and contour. We like to start with places that hold tension, like the shoulders neck and back, before moving down to more intimate areas.
