Finding The Right Lubricant
Water Based Lubricant is your basic lube. Compatible with most condoms and sex toys, water-based lubricant provides easy clean up. Other benefits include a lower ratio of hypersensitivity among users, absorbs into the body, reactivates with water or saliva and is generally thicker than lubricant counterparts.
Silicone Lubricant has silicone properties and therefore longer lasting. Not compatible with all condoms or sex toys so users beware and read the fine print on those products. Silicone lube is perfect for shower sex because it won't absorb into the body or wash away with water, staying slippery smooth much longer.
Flavored Lubricant has become a community favorite for partnering with oral sex. Originally created to make sex smell and taste better, however, flavored lubes can create trouble for women with affinities for yeast infections due to its main ingredient glycerin. If you're unsure, err on the side of caution and keep a nice water-based lube for sex play and save this yummy option for your oral play.
