Toy Lubes

A good toy-friendly lube is easy to clean off and will not deteriorate your toys.


A high-quality sex toy can cost hundreds of dollars. And even if your sex toy isn't expensive, you don't want to find out that it's been eaten up by the wrong lube when you need it the most.

Avoid Oil-based lube altogether. The main lube you want to completely avoid is oil-based lube. In a nutshell, oil-based lubes are hard to clean, tend to coat everything (externally and internally), and are not worth the hassle when there are superiod toy-friendly options.

Silicone-based lube depends on the toy. silicone-based lube. Silicone-based lubes work fine for toys made of hard materials like hard plastic, ceramic, glass, and metals.

The best quality of silicone is that it keeps things slick without coming off during penetration or whatever tasksyou have planned for your toys. And, unlike oil-based lubes, when it comes time to remove silicone, it washes off easily with soap and water.

However, you want to avoid silicone-based lube if your toy itself is made of silicone or other soft, jelly-like materials. The reason is that silicone likes to bind to itself and other porous, soft materials. If you use it on a soft toy, the silicone will slowly bind itself to the toy's surface, the toy will become jellified, and it will disintegrate over time.

Basically, the line between silicone toy and silicone lube will blur and each time you clean your toy, some of it will wash off leaving behind uneven or rugged surfaces and edges.

Tip: This is also why you should keep your silicone toys separated from each other so they don't try to fuse.

Best toy lubes are water-based. Water is pretty much compatible with every material including hard materials and soft materials. The downside is that they can evaporate during play, so you'll just have to ensure that you re-apply as necessary or vocalize to your partner that the toy needs another lube rub.

And, like silicone-based lubes, water-based lubes are easy to clean. Just some water and light soap will do the job.

However, when cleaning your toys, stay away from alcohol-based products which can do damage to your toys over time. Alcohol is harsh and your toys really don't need such harsh treatment.
