Lubricants are definitely the unsung heroes of having sex. Sure, there are a lot of other important factors, like a great partner and sizzling sexual chemistry, but if your vagina hasn’t got the message (for whatever reason, you’re stressed, you’re going through menopause or she just never gets the message!), none of those other factors matter because dry sex almost always equals painful sex.
There are so many different kinds of lube out there, it’s easy to choose the one that suits your needs best and keep it in your bedside drawer for your next romp in the hay. Here, four great lubricants for three different scenarios.
OSKE Aqua Lubricant
Water-based: I love this lubricant because it’s natural, pH-balanced, vegan and hasn’t been tested on animals (good karma all round). It’s also latex safe and perfect to use with toys (a little pre-game fun is always a good idea).
EasyGlide Silicone Lubricant
Silicone-based: Looking to enjoy a marathon session in the sack, complete with sexy massage? This lube won’t dry out quickly, so you don’t have to stress about things getting sticky before you’ve finished having fun.
Oh! Holy Mary Cannabis Sliding Gel
Tingling gel: This is for those more adventurous folk who want to add extra spice to their romps. It has a heating effect that feels more like an intense tingle and will definitely add another dimension to playtime.
Pjur Analyse Me Anal Glide
Anal lube: If lubricant is a great addition to vaginal sex, it’s an absolute must for anal sex. This one is made with jojoba, which softens and moisturises skin, creating a smooth feeling without a desensitising effect. Plus, it’s compatible with latex condoms.
