Why Everyone Needs Lube

Lube recommendations

Seriously, everyone needs a bottle of lube.

Or two or three.

Lube Myths

I’m ready to bust a myth. Kinda like the Mythbusters show: Sex Mythbusters. That might not be a bad idea for a show. Though I’m unsure what kind of stunts we’d need to perform. . .

Myth: Many of us equate sexual arousal with natural lubrication. That lube is only for people with sexual problems.

BUSTED: Big Nope.

Your natural lubrication can be affected by anything from hormone fluctuations (due to pregnancy, birth or menopause) to medication to stress. You might be ready to go mentally, but your body needs a little help to make sex more comfortable (and pleasurable).

Words to remember: Wetter is Better.

Sex is even better when things are smooth and slippery. Lubricants are even handy for solo play or mutual masturbation. They are a must for anal play as your back door doesn’t self-lubricate.

I’m such a big advocate for lube, I feel like Oprah:

Water based lubricants are the most versatile. They play nice with all your sex toys and won’t stain the sheets. Water based lubes come in a smorgasbord of types and flavors. Make sure you have at least one bottle of water based lube in your pleasure chest.

Not sure where to start?

Try a water based lubricant. They’re condom compatible, non-staining, and washes away easily when you need it to. They work with all toys so keep a bottle in your pleasure pantry.

Treat yourself to a premium silicone lube: Why silicone lube isn’t always compatible with silicone toys (check with the manufacturer), they’re the silkiest of all lubes. Silicone lubes like Uberlube cling to your body which makes it perfect for sex in the shower.

They’re even multitaskers. Uberlube is helps with thigh rub and makes a good hair gel in a pinch!
