|Everything you need to know about Lubes|
April 29, 2012
Have you ever considered anal? If you have, you are probably aware of the usefulness of a quality lubricant. For all types of sexual encounters, lubricants can improve the experience, increase stimulation, and even assist with performance. They also help with the longevity of toys.
For the most part, lubricants come in three varieties: water based, oil based, and silicone based. Each of them work the same, but might be better for different scenarios. Water based lubricants are easily absorbed and work well with all types of toys. Oil based lubricants include natural oils that moisturize the skin and can double as massage oil. Silicone lubes coat and create a silky, moisturizing effect that often last long enough for multiple uses. Choosing which lube to use can depend on rather you want all around moisture, something to use with toys or heavy duty lubrication for anal play.
Lubricants can also be used to create a little extra spice in the bedroom. Arousal gels added to the vagina or penis before intercourse help bring additional blood flow and excitement to already sensitive areas. Arousal gels can be used for all types of sexual intercourse as well as simply applied directly to the body.
Similar to how arousal gels help in the bedroom by increasing stimulation, prolonging gels work their magic by decreasing stimulation. Desensitizing spray lubes and gels are used to assist with anal penetration, oral sex, and early ejaculation. These special lubricants remove some of the sensation so the user can spend more time doing what they love.
If providing a little extra moisture, adding some more sensation, or prolonging the experience isn't reason enough to use lubes, prolonging the life of toys might be. Many dolls, strokers and dildos last longer when a quality water based lube is used with it. So if you don't already have a little extra liquid in your closet, now is the time to stock up.
