Personal lube is a must when using sex toys, such as dildos, vibrators, male masturbators and anal toys, because it helps the toy to slide into your body with ease, which equals more comfort and pleasure.
The lube you use with your toys needs to be compatible with the material your sex toy is made from. Silicone lube is not recommended for use with silicone sex toys as it reacts and can decrease the life-span of your toys. Oil lube is also not suitable for use with porous toys.
Water-Based Lube is the top choice for using with toys. If you're ever in doubt, water-based is suitable for use with all toys and is always a safe bet.
Unsurprisingly, we recommend Anal Lube for anal play and anal sex, as the consistency of anal lube is much thicker than that of ordinary lubes. This extra thickness helps protect the sensitive skin of the anus and many also offer a numbing and moisturising effect too. Anal Lube or Silicone Lube are best suited for anal sex.
When it comes to lubricating the vagina in preparation for sex, water-based lube, silicone lube or organic lube are all great options to keep things sleek, slippery and well lubricated. They are also safe to use with condoms.
For lube suited specifically for masturbation purposes, masturbation Lube, water-Based lube, or silicone lube are the best kinds. Simply smear the smooth lube over the penis and enjoy the slick, pleasurable strokes. Women can use whichever lube they prefer to enhance their natural lubrication while they masturbate.
To add extra sensuality to foreplay, try warming or cooling lube, arousal gels or clitoral gels. To decrease sensation, such as for anal sex, try a delay spray or desensitising cream. To add extra flavour to foreplay and oral sex, use a flavoured lube to stimulate the senses and indulge the taste buds.
For the most part, yes it is safe to use lube with condoms. All water-based, silicone and flavoured lubes are 100% safe for use with condoms. The only exception is oil-based lube which can degrade the latex of condoms. The product description will outline whether the lube ingredients are compatible with condoms or not.
