Q. Which lube should I be using? Does it matter?
A. Which lube to use can be dependent on a couple of factors - some personal preference, some activity specific, and some health and safety. Overridingly though, lubricants makes all kinds of sex sexier.
I’ve made a quick reference chart (see below, click to enlarge), and this article highlights some key points and considerations for each lube type - albeit from a woman-centered perspective.
Some additional considerations - WHAT FEELS GOOD ON/IN YOUR BODY?! Just because it’s “safe” to use silicone lubes in vaginas, doesn’t mean it won’t irritate yours! Just because water-based lube is abundant, doesn’t mean it won’t put a damper on the way you perform anal sex. Maybe oil feels weird in your mouth!
A final tip! If you’re not sure what you like, most sex shops will have small sample packs for around $1-$2, you can give them a whirl before making any commitments! I wish you a wet’n’wild summer!
