8 Ways Lube Can Level Up Your Sex Game

When it comes to sex, we often rely on the rule: the wetter, the better. Given that lube provides wetness, it’s fair to say that sex is better with lube! Yet, despite its benefits, lube is often viewed as an afterthought.


With several misconceptions about its purpose and use, it’s time to clear things up. If you only associate lube with vaginal dryness, it’s time to broaden your horizons. Instead, think of it as reducing friction, creating smoother skin, and enhancing your overall sexual experience – no matter your age, gender, or preference.


If you’re still unsure about what lube is and why you should be using it, no sweat; we’ve got you covered! Whether you’re new to lube or a seasoned pro, let’s get slick and explore why you need lube in your life.


What are the Benefits of Lube?


Before we dive into the benefits, let’s start with the basics. 


Personal lubricant, commonly known as lube, is a liquid or gel used during sexual activity to reduce friction between body parts or between a body part and a sex toy. Lube increases pleasure and reduces pain during penetrative sex, masturbation, or sex toy play.


A common misconception is that vaginal wetness is an automatic response to sexual arousal. While this may be true for some people, many experience vaginal dryness, a common but manageable concern. Instead of ignoring the issue and pushing through pain and discomfort, lube can help solve the problem.


Although it may be an essential tool for pleasure and sexual wellness, some individuals may be more intimidated by the thought of asking their partner to use lube than they are by the friction caused by dryness! It’s important to remember that lube is not just for people with vaginas; anyone can benefit from using it. 


Don’t be ashamed to use lube to enhance your sexual satisfaction and make things safer and sexier.


Why Lube is Always a Good Idea


The right lubricant can boost your confidence and encourage you to try new things. But most importantly, it makes sex more fun! 


Here’s why you should start using lube today:


1. It gets things moving


It doesn’t matter how turned on you are–there’s bound to be a time that you’re about to get down with someone… but the message to your vadryna is slightly delayed!


There are many reasons you could be experiencing dryness (and yes, they’re all pretty normal!) Whether you’re feeling anxious, taking certain medications, or at a particular stage of your menstrual cycle, vaginal dryness can strike at any time.


But don’t worry, that’s the beauty of lube! It helps get things moving smoothly so you can focus on the experience, savor every moment, and make things feel a whole lot better.


2. It can keep you going for longer


While hot, passionate impromptu quickies are great, nothing quite compares to a long, intense, passionate session. If you want to prevent dryness and chafe from spoiling the fun—lube is a must! 


Guaranteed to keep everything slick and wet, you can go on for as long as you like, allowing you to switch positions, try new things, and enjoy every sensational second.


3. It can heighten pleasure


Lube is more than just a slippery substance; it’s a fun and essential part of any intimate moment. With various textures, sensations, and flavors, lube can take pleasure to the next level. 


In fact, a study by the University of Indiana in 2009 showed that lube made sex more pleasurable for more than 70% of participants.


4. It makes foreplay more fun


If you’ve always assumed that lube is just for sex…think again! While there are many creative ways to incorporate lube into foreplay, we’re particularly fond of a sensual massage. Applying a little lube early on is a fantastic way to get things going.


Dim the lights, put on some relaxing, soothing music, and get to work with the help of your favorite lube. Gently warm it in your hands before working carefully over your partner’s body, paying close attention to the contour and curve. 


5. It can be used with sex toys


Lube is versatile… It’s fantastic with one person, many people, or even when you prefer a little ‘me time.’ One of our favorite uses is with sex toys. Using lube with a vibrator during masturbation can provide new sensations and experiences.


It’s important to note that any silicone sex toy or vibrator will require water-based lubrication since silicone-based lubricants may (most likely will) damage soft rubber.


6. It can stop condoms from breaking


Using lube with a condom is a wise choice. Aside from feeling (ah!)mazing, when lube is used with a condom, there’s less friction, reducing the risk of the condom tearing and ensuring effectiveness when used correctly. 


But did you know that lube can be used inside a condom? Add a few drops of lube inside the tip of the condom before rolling it on to experience a whole new sensation that many people love. Feel free to add more lube to the outside of the condom once it’s on.


7. It’s ideal for anal sex


The anus, unlike the vagina or penis, does not always provide adequate natural lubrication during sex. Apply lube liberally during foreplay for a relaxing effect, during anal sex, or while using anal sex toys for an overall more pleasurable experience.


8. Anyone can use lube for any type of play


The idea that there is a “typical” lube user is inaccurate. It can and is used by people of all genders, ages, and sexual orientations, as well as during masturbation with or without a sex toy.


Here’s a great tip… Lube up before you go down. Producing enough saliva to lubricate oral sex can sometimes be challenging. Having your lube on standby can be a real game-changer for both sexes.

Try a naturally-flavored lube for a delicious spin.

Infuse Your World With Pleasure


Whatever lube you pick, you should avoid chemicals like glycerin, parabens, and petroleum. When choosing a lube, look for one that does not contain harmful ingredients and will not alter your vaginal pH.
