This entry was posted on 25th October 2013.
One of the biggest misconceptions that women have when it comes to using sex lubes is that they're only used when you have sexual problems. Although it is true that women over the age of 50 do experience a certain degree of vaginal dryness, they can be used for a variety of other purposes as well. Generally, if your goal is to improve your love life, you should consider using sex lubes.
Benefits of Using Sex Lubes
Before enumerating the many benefits of using sex lubes, let us first have a quick definition of the term. Sex lubricants are fluids formulated to reduce the friction within the vagina, anus and other body parts during sexual intercourse or masturbation. There are plenty of lubricants that you can choose from, and here are the main benefits of using them:
• Sex lubricants help women have lubrication if their natural wetness is not enough for penetration during sex.
• They're a great foreplay tool, because sex lubes help increase the sensation felt prior to intercourse.
• If you are indulging in some backdoor action, you should definitely use sex lubes.
• There are lubricants designed to produce a tickling, warming sensation when placed on the most sensitive areas of your body. They can enhance the pleasure during foreplay or the act itself.
• When using sex toys for masturbation or as a way to spice things up in bed, sex lubes are also a must-have.
Types of Sex Lubes to Choose from
Next, what are the different types of sex lubes that you can choose from? Here’s a quick look:
1. Oil-Based Lubes
The main benefit of using oil-based lubes is that they can be easily washed off using detergent and water. However, they can only be used with Polyurethane condoms. If you are using them with sex toys, the toy can be made from almost any material except for latex. Oil-based lubes are a delight to use, although water-based lubricants are the most popular.
2. Silicone-Based Lubes
A rule of thumb that you need to remember when using silicone-based lubes is that they cannot be used alongside sex toys which are also made from silicone. The chemical reaction will cause the adult toy to break down. However, silicone-based lubricants are more long-lasting and stay slick even through wet conditions. This means that you can safely use the lubricant in the shower. They're a bit pricier than other types of sex lubes, but the advantages are well worth the extra cost.
3. Water-Based Lubes
Finally, you can make use of water-based lubes. They can be easily rinsed off, applied to any sex toy and can safely be used on sex toys and during intercourse. Astroglide and KY Jelly are two of the most popular sex lubricants in the market, and they are also very affordable. As compared to oil or silicone-based lubricants, water-based lubes will not stain your skin or your clothes.
No matter which type of lubricant it is that you end up using, what's important is that they are used to make things slicker, smoother and sexier in the bedroom to sizzle up your activities.
