Why Everyone Should Use Lube
Why should I use lube? To experience an even more intense sensation!
Lubricant is one of the easiest ways to bring you closer to your partner in the bedroom and improve your sexual contact. But while you may believe that it simply makes your time spent between the sheets better, you might not know about its added physical and emotional benefits. In this article we’ll look at the benefits of using lube.
It makes foreplay fun
Lube can be incorporated into your foreplay routine in a number of ways. For example, you can use a massage lubricant to heighten sensation as you and your partner explore one another. After a massage, massage gels and lubes can then be used as an intimate lubricant.
Lubricant helps you keep the action going from start to finish no matter the time. Creating your own home massage parlour complete with soft lighting, massage lubes and some scene-setting music could be just the ticket your relationship needs. There are numerous ways you can use lube in your foreplay routine, and some of our foreplay tips might surprise you.
It can help to move you seamlessly into the main event
Sometimes, it takes your body a little while to catch up to your mind – that’s perfectly okay. Lube can allow you to keep the action going as quickly as you desire without having to slam on the brakes. With foreplay techniques, lube can really help you get into the moment that little bit quicker, especially if you go for something like a flavoured lube or tingling variety.
If you suffer from vaginal dryness, you may sometimes feel a little bit conscious about how wet you are ‘down there’. Vaginal dryness is more common than you think and does not just affect those going through menopause or any other hormonal changes! Some people need that little extra help to lube up and get ready for sex.
By helping to enhance the sensations of sex, lubricant can make everything feel more fantastic. And if your partner is particularly well-endowed, or if you are on the smaller side, it helps create a more cohesive feel.
It helps you to keep going longer
Without lubricant, you may experience chafing or dryness, especially if it’s for a longer, more passionate session. Lube can help you keep the action going from start to finish no matter the time. It’s important to be as comfortable in sex as possible, especially for the inexperienced or those who will be trying it for the first time.
A decent amount of lube can help to reduce any uncomfortable friction and reduces the chances of your condom splitting and therefore being rendered useless. Applied correctly, a condom is 98% effective against pregnancy. The benefits of a lubricant and condom combo in this instance is obvious.
It may help keep contraception from breaking
As stated above, lubes reduce friction, which helps keep latex contraception intact and less prone to tearing.
It can be used with sex toys
The great thing about lube is how versatile it is. Whether you’re playing with a lover or on your own, lubricant can be used in a multitude of ways. Applying some lube to your favourite vibrator can enhance the experience even more. Using lube on your sex toy can help you to reach climax quickly and play around with new sexual experiences.
It’s worth noting that any sex toy or vibrator that’s made of silicone will need a water-based lube to be applied. Silicone-based lubricants can deteriorate soft rubber like the materials used on some sex toys.
There is a lube for you
Some people may avoid using lube because they tried one and it didn’t work for them. It’s important to know that there are many different types of lube out there; if you want something with a little tingle, we have it!
