Ho Ho Ho! The festive season is approaching and we’re sure you have more than visions of sugar plums dancing in your sexy heads. The holidays are a time of good cheer and even better sex so it is time to get prepared.


Have you got all of the essentials for a jolly good time? At this time of year, it is so easy to forget the most basic of details so we’re here to remind you to not forget about lube!

Remember, lube makes everything naughty and nice so be sure you’re all stocked up with a variety of types for the many holiday scenarios to come.

Party Hard, Party Long

One of the most exciting nights of the year is New Year’s Eve! The turning of the calendar is a great time to reflect on all of the sexy times you’ve had over the past year—as well as anticipate all of the erotic action to come!


New Year’s Eve is often a night of indulgence in tasty foods and booze. Combine these with those sexy thoughts and you’re hopefully going to be rockin’ around the clock, long after the ball(s) drop at midnight. So before you get a little too carried away with your celebration, make sure you put a bottle of Swiss Navy Silicone Lubricant on your bedside table.

Swiss Navy Silicone Lubricant

Silicone lube is an excellent choice for a party night you never want to end. Sure, we’d all love to think that just the thought of a hot time is enough to keep our bodily fluids flowing the entire time. Well, our bodies can’t always keep up with our brains—particularly after some intoxicants. And remember, some of those special treats, specifically rich food and alcohol, can leave you feeling dehydrated.


Silicone lube can help your bits and pieces fit together better by ensuring proper lubrication is maintained. Silicone lube is a great choice when you want to (hope to) extend your sexy session because silicone lube lasts longer than other types of lube. Other benefits of using silicone lube? It is hypoallergenic, isn’t absorbed into the body and feels slick and luxurious.

But there is one important thing to remember: hide your silicone toys before the night starts! You should not use silicone lube on silicone toys. It will break down the toy, potentially allowing bacteria to grow in small holes. Keep you and your toys safe by putting them away until the new year.

Perfect Travel Companion

Travel is an essential part of many peoples’ holiday plans. Maybe not this year so much, but we’re hopeful for more opportunities to visit our family and friends in the near future. Being a holiday nomad can potentially mean sleeping in guest rooms and on couches—and that might put a pinch in your sexy holiday spirit if you’re worried about leaving behind a mess on someone else’s sheets. Quick and easy clean up might also be needed!


So, along with your toothbrush, deodorant and some muscle relaxers for those lumpier mattresses, be sure to pack a bottle of Swiss Navy Premium Water Based Lubricant.

Water-based lube is that reliably buddy who always helps you out, but doesn’t over stay their welcome. Great to use with all toys and condoms, easy to wash off and non-staining, water based lube is an essential component of everyone’s titillating utility belt.


Some water based lubes dry out and get sticky if they’re used for too long, but Swiss Navy’s is specially formulated to have amazing viscosity. And here’a s bonus: it comes out of the bottle as gel instead of wild, runny liquid. When you’re ready to slip and slide it becomes a sensual liquid. Here’s one more tip for packing your holiday suitcase: always bring your own extra towel for quick emergency clean-up!

A Booty-full Gift

For many, gift-giving is a hallmark of the holiday season. Seeing the joy on your partner’s face when they open a special present can fill both of you with joy. Now, speaking of getting filled with joy, why not give the gift of ass?

Remember that not all gifts are material objects. Sharing your body for an anal adventure can provide a lifetime of heart-pumping memories—particularly if it is your or your partner’s first time. Regardless of whether you’re anal amateurs or ass aces, opening the backdoor with some Swiss Navy Premium Anal Lubricant will make everyone feel more welcome.

Lube and communication are the keys to having pleasurable anal sex that minimizes the potential for pain. It is often assumed that butt fun is definitely going to hurt—but it doesn’t have to! By combining patience and great anal lube, ass sex is a great experience for many!

Whether it is your first time or you’re a veteran of ass sex, be sure to take your time warming your or your partner’s ass up with lots of slow fingering and rimming and lots and lots of lube to prepare the anus for penetration.

Swiss Navy Anal Lube helps because it contains clove leaf oil which contains natural pain relief properties. This addition can help, but nothing replaces verbal check-ins to ensure everyone is comfortable and experiencing pleasure.

And don’t forget, if you’re strapping on or using toys for anal pleasure, don’t use a silicone toy with silicone lube. If everything goes well, butt fun can be the gift that keeps on giving and giving all year round!

Taste of the Season

Sweet treats are synonymous with the holiday season. Chocolates and candy canes and cookies and cakes...oh my! Nothing replaces the simple joy of waiting each day to open the little doors of an advent calendar to reveal the tasty treat that waits inside!

Our mouths—those luscious lips and tantalizing tongues—are such a big part of our sexual identities that incorporating delectable taste sensations into our erotic appetites is a natural fit. And you can enhance that pleasure by getting your lips on Swiss Navy Flavored Lubricants!

Swiss Navy Flavoured Lubes in a line

Featuring six fantastic flavors, Strawberry Kiwi, Pina Colada, Passion Fruit, Very Wild Cherry, Cooling Peppermint, and Chocolate Bliss, these water-based lubes are a real pleasure to the palate! Try drizzling them all over your partner’s body and then tracing your tongue along that line. Or put drops of different flavors in different places, blindfold your partner and have them find the flavors with their tongue!

The great thing about Swiss Navy flavored lubes are longer-lasting and non-sticky for added long-lasting, lip-smackin’ lust. Before you get into these sweet and sexy shenanigans, it is advised that you test flavored lubes on your skin for potential allergic reactions. Some folks, particularly vulva owners, can experience reactions including yeast infections when using flavored lube internally.

Togetherness Tingles

The holidays are a great time to visit loved ones and spend time with children. The magic in the air makes these moments even more special. However, in all of the hustle and bustle, it is easy to lose intimate time with your partner(s). There’s only so much time, but it is important to carve out a slice here and there when you can. And when you do get a few moments under the mistletoe to yourselves, why not add a new tingle to your tinsel with Swiss Navy Sensual Arousal lubricant?

Swiss Navy Sensual Arousal Gel

Featuring a special formula that both enhances stimulation and arousal for penis-havers and offers greater satisfaction for vulva-owners, a bottle of this water-based lube will be one slick gift in your lover’s stocking. The additional sensation will rock your chimney!

Just remember, before you use lubes with sensation-enhancing ingredients, test them out elsewhere on your body. These lubes might not work well internally for everyone, but they can be a great addition to manual stimulation. Oh, and make sure you have one door in your home that locks on the inside.

The Shining Light

What better gift could you give than the joy and fulfillment of increased sexual pleasure? In many ways, the orgasm gap is real. Vulva-owners do not orgasm as frequently or readily as people with penises and the added stress of the holidays might make that even more apparent.

So, whether you’re playing with a partner or taking matters into your own hands with some merry masturbation, add Swiss Navy’s Viva Cream to your sexy sessions to increase your body’s sensitivity and arousal. While Viva Cream doesn’t include gold, frankincense and myrrh, it does combine herbal extracts, vitamins, and amino acids in a gel that is applied to the clitoris when you’re sexy shenanigans.

Siwss Navy Viva Cream packaging

Created by vulva-owners, each ingredient has been specifically chosen for its pleasure enhancing effects on vulva. When you first try Viva Cream, apply a small amount and wait until you feel a warm tingling sensation before applying more. Hopefully Santa brings some Viva Cream when he comes to town and it then helps you cum all year round.

Happy Horny Holidays and Sexy Seasons Greetings!
