Full Guide: How to Buy Sex Lubricants

By Ekaterina Mironova

Most sexual activities include friction. Sex is a game of rubbing skin to skin to create enjoyment and pleasure. While most sexual parts like the vagina and mouth are self-lubricating, the anus is not. It needs lots of help to make penetration smooth and comfortable. On the other hand, natural wetness can decrease for health and hormonal reasons making intercourse painful and uncomfortable no matter how excited you are. Using a sex lubricant helps you achieve a smooth penetration and gliding during intercourse.

Water Based Lubricant

These lubricants are usually odourless, tasteless, and versatile. They are based on water hence, compatible with all types of sex toys and condoms.

Silicone Based Lubricants

Silicone-based lubricants are long-lasting and provide great cushion during anal sex. They are very effective for rigorous penetrative sex, massage or masturbation. These lubricants are compatible with most sex toys and condoms. However, don’t use silicone-based lubes on silicone toys as they tend to react and can damage to the toy surface. You also need to be careful on latex condoms. Make sure to check the condom user manual to see if your type of condom is compatible with silicone.

If you enjoy some aquatic action, these lubes will be an essential addition to your bedroom essentials. Silicone-lubricants also feel less natural and can be difficult to wash off.

Flavoured Lubricants

Flavoured lubricants are basically water lubricants infused with different flavours such as strawberry, banana, cherry, orange, chocolate and more. They are designed to add a tasty swish to oral sex and foreplay.

Some flavoured lubricants include glycerin as an ingredient to make them edible. This makes them unsuitable for vaginal sex as the sugar component in glycerin can cause vaginal irritation and increase chances of contracting a yeast infection. There are flavoured lubricants without glycerin. Visit Peaches and Screams to view your options on flavoured lubricants available.

Most lubricant bottles will list the lubricant type (silicone –based, water-based, or others) and all the other ingredients used to compound its texture and scents. It is advisable to avoid lubricants containing these ingredients:

  • Glycerin: This sugar compound increases the possibilities of contracting a yeast infection or other Urinary Tract Infection.
  • Nonoxynol-9: Commonly used in spermicidal lubes, this ingredient can irritate the vaginal walls increasing your chances of contracting infections and STDs.
  • Parabens (Methylparaben and Propylparaben): Also commonly used in cosmetics, these preservatives are absorbed by the body and metabolize in the breast and ovaries. They have been linked to breast and ovarian cancers especially in women.
  • Polyquaternium-15: This ingredient damages your rectal lining and increases HIV replication during sex.
  • L-arginine: Common in arousal lubricant, its best avoided if you have herpes. It can accelerate things and encourage an outbreak.

Other ingredients such as menthol may cause tissue dryness and petroleum may block skin pores. Try avoiding them or using them sparingly if you must.

However, they have a low constituency and dry up quickly, you might need to refresh severally during sex. Silicone lubricants are thinner and provide a higher consistency.
