Personal Lubricants For Sex

Plenty of you out there have probably run into a problem just like this before: your girlfriend's vagina is bone-dry during sex. It's chafing you, hurting her, and making the sex unpleasant in general. You try using spit -- no good. It doesn't last, and repeatedly rubbing your spit on a woman's crotch really isn't your idea of a good time. You try lubricated condoms, but the greasy sandwich bag sensation isn't helping matters. What to do?

One word: lube. Personal lubricants are the quickest, easiest, and (maybe) most effective solution to problems like unusual dryness on your lady's part.

Lubes can also help prolong lovemaking sessions, make your own masturbation sessions better. It's also virtually required for anal sex-- an activity that's becoming increasingly common among couples.

Even if you don't think you need lube, you may be surprised at what it can do for your sex life. Think about it: quickies are no problem with lube. Just apply some and you're off to the races -- it eliminates the need for your girl to get wet first. And speaking of which, say you have a girl that takes ages to build up enough natural lubrication for sex. Give lube a try, and your jaw muscles will thank you later.

So if you think you're a guy who could benefit from using lube, read on. We'll give you the low & down on different types of lube, things to be mindful of, and reviews of the most popular and widely available brands.

Virtually all Sex lubes on the market today fall into one of three categories:

1- Water-based;
2- Silicone-based; and, 
3- Oil-based 

Each of these has their advantages and disadvantages. For most situations though, water-based lubes are by far the most popular.

Water-based lubes are just that: water-based. Their main feature is that they're smooth and slick, but not sticky and messy like silicone and oil-based lubes can be. 

Since they're water-soluble, skin and mucous membranes will absorb them. This makes cleanup a breeze: just a little warm water, maybe some soap, and the lube will easily wash off the skin.

However, it also means that you might have to periodically reapply it, depending on how long you have sex for. This is one of the chief drawbacks of water-based lube, since we all know that in the heat of the moment, an interruption is probably the worst thing that could happen.

Water-based lubes also have the added advantage of being completely condom-compatible (oil-based lubes corrode latex and cannot be used with condoms -- more on that later). One thing to watch out for, however, is that many water-based lubes contain glycerin, which can promote infections in women pretty easily. So make sure your girl cleans up right away after using one. 

The world's most famous water-based lube, KY frankly isn't the best. It dries up quicker than better-quality lubes, and gets tacky as it dries. I do not recommend it highly. KY, actually, was designed for medical use. That is, it's designed to facilitate easy entry, and clean up quickly. We suggest that you stick to lubes that are designed for sex.

silicone-based Personal lubes

Silicone-based lubes are similar to water-based lubes, but are generally much greasier and last much longer, despite having a thinner texture. In fact, that's their main advantage: silicone-based lubes take ages to dry out. No muss, no fuss, no need to reapply.

What's more; you can actually use them in water and they'll still work. They're not quite as easy to clean up as water-based lubes, though. Those who don't like silicone-based lubes say that using them is like having motor oil slathered on your bits. Others swear by it.
