Lubricant Selection Guide

Lubricant Selection Guide

When it comes to essential items in sexual life, lubricant must have a place, because lubricant exists to increase lubrication, prevent skin friction from causing damage, and help sexual intercourse to proceed better. But if you use the wrong type of lubricant, it can cause harm! So how should you choose lubricant?

Here youngwill will teach you how to choose a safe and suitable lubricant!

Lubricant is divided into three types: water-based, oil-based, and silicon-based, which are suitable for use in different scenarios.

1. Water-based lubricant;

Features: The texture is relatively moist and the viscosity is relatively low. It is suitable for all erotic scenes, whether wearing condoms, using sex toys or using it with bare hands. Water-based lubricants do not contain too much grease, so they are easy to clean. Just rinse with water, which saves time! Some lubricants even require no cleaning.

Disadvantages: Water-based lubricants are easily absorbed by the human body, which means they need to be constantly replenished, which may affect the fun experience.

Generally speaking, water-based lubricants are safe and easy to clean, and are recommended when using sex toys, such as masturbator cups, dildos, etc.


2. Silicone-based lubricant;

Features: The texture is relatively oily and the main ingredients are silicone oil. Silicone oil will not be absorbed by the human body. As long as it is used once during the process, it can last for a long time. There is no need to stop and replenish it all the time. It is very suitable for use during anal sex.

Disadvantages: It is more difficult to clean than water-based lubricants because it is more troublesome to clean than oil. Moreover, most condoms on the market are attached with silicone-based lubricant to increase lubrication, which is why they feel sticky every time they are used.

It should be noted that silicone-based lubricants cannot be used with silicone sex toys, because silicone-based lubricants will corrode silicone adult toys, causing holes on the surface of the toys, and bacteria will breed over time. For example, silicone masturbator cup and pocket pussy.

Generally speaking, silicone-based lubricants can harm some sex toys and are difficult to clean. They are only recommended for use during anal intercourse. Because the anus itself does not secrete human body lubricating fluid, water-based lubricating fluid will be absorbed, and silicone-based lubricating fluid can overcome the problem of absorption.

3. Oily lubricant;

Features: Like baby oil and massage oil, compared with oil, the lubrication effect is better and lasts longer. We recommend it for body massage.

Disadvantages: It is very difficult to clean. If it is not cleaned properly, some liquid will remain in the body, which may cause infection.

Note: Oil-based lubricants cannot be used with latex condoms because the two components of oil and latex will interact with each other. The oil can decompose the latex components and cause the condom to be damaged. It is not recommended to use during sex, but for body massage, oil-based lubricants are highly recommended.

Finally, everyone should choose the appropriate lubricant according to their own needs. Do not blindly follow the trend of a certain lubricant. If you have never been exposed to it, you must first understand the basic knowledge to avoid unnecessary damage caused by wrong choices.
