Water Based Lube vs Oil vs Silicone Personal Lubricants for Sex

Which lube is the best pick?

Lubricants have become rather popular amongst adults who wish to have some excitement in their sexual activities. Although there are several sex toys available in the market, lubricants have gained immense popularity over the decade. When you talk about sexual toys, these are usually made from latex or rubber and jelly. However, toys made from these materials may often prove to be detrimental to the vagina in general.

Using such toys may often result in a burning, itching or stinging the vagina or even penis. Thus, the best solution is to use sex toys and products that are safe for your skin and will not cause any harm to your private parts. Checking the ingredients before buying is a good habit when it comes to buying sexual toys and lubricants as quoted by this website.

Vaginal Lubricants

Vaginal dryness is a common thing amongst aging women. Once this happens, it can also act as a frustrating libido killer. People most commonly use petroleum-based lubricants in such situations. However, it tends to get sticky and gloppy. When you try to find a suitable lubricant, you will notice that, apart from petroleum-based lubricants, there are also silicone and oil-based lubricants. These types of vaginal lubricants are easily available over-the-counter and are available in different forms. These lubricants are used to get immediate relief from vaginal dryness before you have sexual intercourse with your partner.

It is highly advisable not to use vaginal lubricants with condoms, since these can easily damage the latex of the condoms. It is also a good thing to consult with a doctor before using a lubricant if you are breastfeeding or pregnant. It is also advisable not to use a lubricant if you are allergic to any of the ingredients used in the making of the product.

Water Based Lubricants

These happen to be the most versatile amongst all types of lubricants in the market. This is simply because such lubricants are safe for all varieties of sexual acts and you may also use it with other silicone sex toys. Due to the presence of water in a water-based lubricant, it is free from taste, smell, and color. These do not cause any stains on your clothes and can easily be washed off. Water-based lubricants leave your skin silky smooth, clean, and also free from any possible residue. However, it is good for you to note that water-based lubricants can easily dry out rather fast. You may either re-apply the lubricant or even sprinkle some water in order to re-activate the silky-smooth feel.

Oil Based Lube

These types of lubricants also provide a silky smooth and long-lasting experience. Oil-based lubricants are extremely beneficial for your skin as they boost the comfort level of your sexual play and also moisturizes your skin. These types of products are normally thicker than water-based ones, making them one of the best choices for anal toys. Oil-based lubricants provide a long-lasting lubrication and give a more natural feel as compared to water-based ones. However, do not use it with condoms as it may also damage the quality of the latex.

Silicone Based Lubricants

These types of lubricants are great for any type of sexual fun in the water and last for a really long time. It is good for you to note that silicone-based lubricants are not suitable to be used with any silicone sex toys as they can easily damage the surface. Nonetheless, it is one of the best choices when it comes to vaginal lubricants. Silicone-based lubes are also good to be used with condoms. You just need a few drops of the lube in order to enjoy your sexual activities.
