Lube lube lube…ah lubrication. It makes a lot of sex even more fabulous! The ass doesn’t have much of its own natural lubrication, so by using lube you’re also being kind to the butt and reducing the risk of minor wounds and injuries on the mucous membranes inside the ass. Lube can, of course be used for other types of sex, such as masturbation and vaginal sex. Silicon-based lube also makes an excellent massage oil. Nothing like a hot massage as foreplay to get everybody ready.
Cremes that contain fat (such as ointments, skin lotions, massage oils and other oils), weaken latex condoms and can make them break easily. Instead, it’s better to use either a water or silicon-based lubricant if you’re using a condom. Water-based lubricants are thick and may dry out after a while, so you’ll need to apply more as needed. Silicon-based lubes are thinner, don’t dry out and last a long time, even if you don’t use a lot. Both can be washed off with soap and water, even though silicon lubes are slightly harder to rinse off. If you prefere to use oil based cremes you can always use plastic condoms, they are not usually avalible in regular stores so you might have to order them online.
You can buy lube at the pharmacy, online and at some supermarkets. Sex shops and condom shops generally have a bigger selection. Feel your way and try out different kinds of lube, and see what’s best for you and the person(s) you have sex with.
