Silicone lubricant is a silicone-based personal lubricant that is made primarily from silicone, which is a compound comprised of synthetic polymers. This type of lubricant can be used during vaginal and anal intercourse, and with some sex toys. Unlike its counterpart water-based lubricant, silicone lubricant does not absorb into skin, which makes it more slippery for longer periods of time.
Silicone lubricant should not be used with sex toys that are also made from silicone. This can result in a reaction that can degrade the surface of the toy over time. Not only can this ruin a toy eventually, but it will also create a perfect environment for bacteria to grow in the meantime. However, silicone lubricant is safe to use with latex condoms. Since it's waterproof, it won't wash away during foreplay or sex in the water.
