Vaginal Lubes

Friend of the pink


Vaginas secrete their own lubricating mucus when they are aroused. This helps the penis enter and pump in and out of it like a piston.

So, why would you ever use lube for vaginal sex? Here are some reasons:

  1. Not every woman always produces an adequate amount of lube. Some women produce a lot, some produce little. You simply cannot judge a woman's arousal by the amount of natural lubrication she is producing.
  2. The amount of natural lube a vaginal can secrete depends on factors like the stage in the menstrual cycle, the woman's age, stress, health, the medication she is taking, drugs/alcohol, and even how hydrated she is. All sorts of confounding factors can conspire to keep a vagina desert dry.
  3. Lube makes sex more fun!

You should always have some lube on hand, but how do you choose the right one?

The three bases of lubes:

  1. Oil-based lubes: Baby oils, mineral oils, petroleum jellies, and hand creams can often be found around the house, but oil-based lubes can damage latex condoms so that they are more likely to break during intercourse. They are also more likely to damage sperm.

  2. Water-based lubes: Most common type of lubricant. They are the least likely to irritate the skin, they are the easiest to clean up, and they do not damage condoms. By default, water-based lubes have a neutral odor and texture. The downside is that they dry up much faster than oil-based and silicone-based lubes. You almost always want to use a water-based lube for vaginal sex.

  3. Silicone-based lubes: Lasts the longest of all the lubes without drying up. Unlike oil-based lubes, silicone does not degrade latex condoms. Have a softening-effect on the skin. For toy penetration or anal sex, silicone-based lubes are typically better than water-based lubes.

In other words, you almost always want a water-based lube for vaginal sex. It's easy to clean up, does not leave a mess, and works well with latex condoms.

Also, vaginal lubes can also be found with enhancing effects infused in the lube which increase the pleasure of contact of the giver and receive as your meats glide past each other over and over until sensual eruption.
