Slippery sex is better sex.
Lube! We always recommend it, we know you love it, and we think everyone - and we mean EVERYONE - should use it. In fact, slippery sex is better in every way. It's:
- Safer: Condoms are less likely to tear with a good (condom-safe) lube.
- More Comfortable: Friction feels good ... to a point. Lube keeps all the pleasure and none of the pain (or rash) that can come from a vigorous romp.
- Provides More Options: Anal sex is fun but anuses don't lubricate, making lube a must here. Lubricant also opens up other areas to explore, like sensual massage, more slippery (or flavored) oral sex, or sexy nipple play.
- It Lasts Longer: Without that "in the saddle too long" feeling holding you back, you can go all night (if you want to).
So which lubes are best? We've picked out a few of our faves for you to enjoy.
Sliquid Swirl Blue Raspberry
It's hard not to love a good flavored lube. Sliquid's Swirl offers a delicious rainbow of delightful flavors that are neither fake, nor overpowering. We dig the blue raspberry flavor, but this line comes in cherry vanilla, pink lemonade, pina colada and whole bunch of other awesome options. Unlike many other flavored lubes, it's also sugar and glycerin free, making it safe for both oral and vaginal sex.
If you haven't tried a silicone-based lube, you're missing out. It's super smooth, long-lasting and fully waterproof, making it perfect for everything from anal play to shower sex. Sliquid Silver is one of the best in this category. It's super smooth, made from pharmaceutical-grade ingredients and is free of harmful additives. Note that silicone lubes don't always play nice with silicone sex toys, so be sure to do a spot test if you plan to use it for solo play!
While oil- or silicone-based lubes are often top-choice for anal play, they can get messy. Enter Sliquid Sassy, a cushy, long-lasting lube for anal play that's water based! Specially crafted for anal sex, Sassy includes a plant-based cellulose to make it thicker and longer lasting. It's also unflavored, unscented and glycerin and paraben free, ensuring it's safe for the most delicate tissues.
Coconu Oil-Based Lubricant
Looking for a lube that provides glide and moisturizes dry skin? Coconu may be your best bet. This all-natural, coconut oil based lubricant provides luxurious moisture for sensitive tissues. It is also fully edible and makes a great massage oil. In fact, it's so luscious, it won't be long before you're using it as a go-to hand cream and moisturizer as well.
Bliss CBD Intimate Oil
CBD is the new thing in sexual health. It may boost libido, decrease sexual anxiety and increase sensation. This blissful oil-based lube is infused with 250mg of hemp-derived cannabinoids per bottle, plus other sensation-boosting ingredients like peppermint oil, black pepper and l-arginine. This body-safe oil great for just about any play that doesn't involve a latex barrier. Because it's an oil, a little goes a long way!
Jack Knob Polish
This one's a dedicated male masturbation lube that's designed to check a few specific boxes. It's long-lasting, water-based (for easier cleanup), and includes a touch of CBD oil for increased sensation. It's sure to kick your self-love sessions up a notch.
Sliquid Organics Natural Gel
Sensitive folks may want to stick to lubes with the most natural ingredients possible. Sliquid Organics Natural Lubricant fits the bill here, with 95% organic ingredients, additional aloe to soothe irritation and a pH balanced formula to mimic your body's own natural lubrication.
