WHY EVERYONE NEEDS LUBE
Will using a lubricant make my sex life better? The answer is YES! 1,000 times… YES!
Let's dive into it!
What your vulva needs
First, we need to understand how natural lubrication works:
Fluids from the cervix and secretions from the Bartholin glands (located to the right and left of the vaginal opening) and the Skene glands (close to the urethra) keep the vagina clean and moist. During arousal, the Bartholin glands secret extra fluid to help reduce friction.
However, in most cases, natural lubrication is not enough
Sidenote: Contrary to popular belief, poor natural lubrication doesn’t always mean a lack of arousal or excitement.
Dryness can happen any time and for different reasons:
- Poor diet
- Hormonal Cycles
- Some medical treatments
If your vagina is dry during rubbing or penetration, that friction is only going to cause pain, tearing and discomfort. That’s where lubricant comes in! A water-based lubricant will reduce the friction and decrease the risk of tearing on your vaginal tissue. It will also protect and nourish the skin of your vaginal canal. Not to mention it can also heighten your pleasure as well as your partners’.
Extra lubrication can also be great for when you are playing solo. It doesn't matter if you use your fingers, a clit sucker or a dildo: lubrication always enhances the experience.
Plus, it’s normal for your parts not to be lubricated from the get go! By using lube you’ll be able to feel more comfortable and enjoy the ride from start to finish.
Penis bodies need it too!
In penis bodies, lubricants are also a great addition for hand jobs (if not a must). And guess what: they can be ideal for oral sex too!
You can even add flavoured and stimulating lubes to help spice up oral play. That way, you’ll make foreplay much more fun and exciting! And if you like to wear protection to prevent any STDs, using flavoured lube will dull the taste of the latex condoms.
A must for anal stimulation
Anal sex is no different than having sex with any other part of your body. Having said that, if you are planning to indulge; lube is a must. The anus does not produce natural lubrication for comfortable stimulation of any kind , so don’t skimp on the lube!
Not only will proper lubrication make penetration more comfortable, but it will reduce the possibility of tissue damage and tearing.
Lubes are usually seen as a problem-solver rather than a pleasure-provider. And it shouldn’t be like that. Lube doesn’t have to be a last resort for when you’re not wet enough. The truth is it can seriously enhance the pleasure of everyone involved.
A recent study shows nearly 50 percent of people say that using lube makes it much easier to reach an orgasm. The increase in arousal and friction makes the sex so much better and the additional lube can make protected sex feel more natural and pleasurable.
Anything that you put inside you will be absorbed into your body and bloodstream so it’s important to choose a high-quality lube. We especially recommend water-based lubricants. Water-based lubricants are very easy to wash off and compatible with condoms and toys.
