Lube 5 Ways

Lube​ ​is​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​most​ ​important​ ​and​ ​primal​ ​parts​ ​of​ ​sex.​ ​Without​ ​lube, pleasurable​ ​and​ ​fulfilling​ ​sex​ ​can​ ​be​ ​hard​ ​to​ ​achieve.​ ​Regardless​ ​of​ ​gender​ ​or sexual​ ​orientation,​ ​everyone​ ​sexually​ ​active​ ​has​ ​lube​ ​in​ ​common​ ​and​ ​even​ ​those who​ ​aren’t​ ​sexually​ ​active,​ ​but​ ​in​ ​the​ ​act​ ​of​ ​sexual​ ​self-exploration​ ​can​ ​find​ ​a​ ​use for​ ​lube.​ ​Which​ ​is​ ​why​ ​today​ ​I’d​ ​like​ ​to​ ​help​ ​you​ ​explore​ ​various​ ​ways​ ​to​ ​use​ ​lube and​ ​to​ ​reach​ ​a​ ​better​ ​understanding​ ​behind​ ​the​ ​product​ ​that​ ​we​ ​love​ ​so​ ​much.

What Is Lubricant Made From?

Lube​ ​can​ ​be​ ​made​ ​from​ ​various​ ​products;​ ​water,​ ​oil,​ ​petroleum​ ​or​ ​even​ ​silicone. The​ ​ingredients​ ​involved​ ​in​ ​making​ ​lube​ ​make​ ​a​ ​difference​ ​to​ ​the​ ​end​ ​result​ ​of the​ ​feel​ ​of​ ​the​ ​lube​ ​and​ ​the​ ​versatility​ ​of​ ​the​ ​lube.​ ​Water-based​ ​Lubes​ ​are generally​ ​better,​ ​as​ ​they’re​ ​safe​ ​to​ ​use​ ​with​ ​condoms,​ ​easily​ ​washed​ ​away​ ​and can​ ​be​ ​safely​ ​used​ ​with​ ​silicone​ ​toys.​ ​Silicon-based​ Lubes​ ​will​ ​produce​ ​a​ ​gritty feeling​ ​when​ ​used​ ​with​ ​silicone​ ​toys​ ​and​ ​have​ ​a​ ​greater​ ​risk​ ​of​ ​causing​ ​infection, as​ ​it​ ​isn’t​ ​water-soluble​ ​and​ ​therefore​ ​harder​ ​to​ ​wash​ ​away​ ​lingering​ ​bacteria. This​ ​is​ ​particularly​ ​important​ ​for​ ​people​ ​prone​ ​to​ ​yeast​ ​infections;​ ​it’s​ ​incredibly important​ ​to​ ​use​ ​a​ ​water-based​ ​lube​ ​made​ ​without​ ​glycerin,​ ​as​ ​sugars​ ​found​ ​in glycerin​ ​feed​ ​yeast​ ​and​ ​cause​ ​it​ ​to​ ​multiply.

When To Use Personal Lubricant

1. Masturbation

Perhaps​ ​the​ ​most​ ​common​ ​way​ ​to​ ​use​ ​lube,​ ​is​ ​to​ ​use​ ​it​ ​to​ ​masturbate.​ ​If​ ​you have​ ​dry​ ​hands,​ ​there’s​ ​no​ ​need​ ​to​ ​use​ ​a​ ​moisturizing​ ​lotion​ ​that​ ​could​ ​contain unwanted​ ​chemicals​ ​that​ ​you​ ​wouldn’t​ ​want​ ​entering​ ​your​ ​body.​ ​Applying​ ​a​ ​few drops​ ​of​ ​lube​ ​makes​ ​for​ ​a​ ​smoother,​ ​more​ ​pleasurable​ ​and​ ​tactile​ ​experience.

To​ ​add​ ​to​ ​this,​ ​you​ ​can​ ​use​ ​lube​ ​when​ ​you​ ​are​ ​masturbating​ ​with​ ​a​ ​vibrator. Imagine​ ​the​ ​sensation​ ​that​ ​your​ ​vibrator​ ​normally​ ​provides​ ​you,​ ​whether​ ​used anally​ ​or​ ​vaginally,​ ​but​ ​now​ ​with​ ​a​ ​tactile​ ​sensitive​ ​edge​ ​provided​ ​by​ ​sufficient lubrication.​ ​Just​ ​remember​ ​to​ ​use​ ​a​ ​Water-based​ Lube,​ ​as​ ​Silicon-based​ Lubes​ ​on a​ ​silicone​ ​made​ ​toy​ ​can​ ​definitely​ ​erode​ ​the​ ​soft​ ​rubber​ ​and​ ​provide​ ​for​ ​a​ ​less than​ ​desirable​ ​experience.

2. Vaginal Intercourse

Another​ ​common​ ​way​ ​to​ ​use​ ​lube​ ​is​ ​during​ ​vaginal​ ​intercourse.​ ​Realistically, there​ ​is​ ​no​ ​wrong​ ​way​ ​to​ ​use​ ​lube;​ ​so​ ​you​ ​can​ ​apply​ ​it​ ​to​ ​the​ ​penis​ ​itself,​ ​or​ ​to​ ​the vagina​ ​as​ ​you​ ​see​ ​fit.​ ​Always​ ​start​ ​with​ ​a​ ​few​ ​drops​ ​and​ ​work​ ​up​ ​from​ ​there,​ ​to ensure​ ​that​ ​the​ ​lube​ ​doesn’t​ ​drip​ ​excessively​ ​on​ ​the​ ​sheets​ ​or​ ​cause​ ​your​ ​partner to​ ​slip​ ​everywhere.​ ​And​ ​if​ ​you​ ​do​ ​reach​ ​that​ ​point,​ ​then​ ​this​ ​can​ ​be​ ​easily​ ​fixed with​ ​a​ ​paper​ ​towel.​ ​For​ ​some​ ​women​ ​who​ ​don’t​ ​auto-lubricate​ ​or​ ​find​ ​it​ ​hard​ ​to, lube​ ​can​ ​be​ ​a​ ​game-changer.

Many​ ​men​ ​complain​ ​that​ ​using​ ​a​ ​condom​ ​ruins​ ​sex.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​where​ ​lube​ ​comes​ ​in handy;​ ​if​ ​your​ ​partner​ ​is​ ​looking​ ​for​ ​more​ ​ways​ ​to​ ​increase​ ​pleasure​ ​while​ ​being protected,​ ​adding​ ​a​ ​little​ ​lube​ ​inside​ ​the​ ​condom​ ​ups​ ​the​ ​sensitivity​ ​that​ ​he’ll​ ​feel inside​ ​the​ ​latex.

3. Anal Intercourse

Anal​ ​intercourse​ ​can​ ​sometimes​ ​be​ ​impossible​ ​without​ ​lube.​ ​Asses​ ​don’t​ ​create their​ ​own​ ​lubricant​ ​like​ ​a​ ​vagina​ ​does,​ ​and​ ​to​ ​ensure​ ​safe​ ​anal​ ​sex,​ ​plenty​ ​of​ ​lube should​ ​be​ ​involved.​ ​One​ ​can​ ​never​ ​be​ ​too​ ​careful​ ​and​ ​too​ ​much​ ​is​ ​never​ ​enough when​ ​it​ ​comes​ ​to​ ​anal​ ​intercourse.​ ​Again​ ​the​ ​lube​ ​can​ ​be​ ​applied​ ​to​ ​the​ ​entrance of​ ​the​ ​anus,​ ​or​ ​on​ ​the​ ​penis​ ​itself,​ ​or​ ​both​ ​on​ ​the​ ​outside​ ​and​ ​inside​ ​of​ ​the condom.​ ​Using​ ​lube​ ​during​ ​anal​ ​intercourse​ ​can​ ​prevent​ ​the​ ​prevalence​ ​of​ ​anal tears​ ​or​ ​fissures,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​lack​ ​of​ ​friction​ ​can​ ​lead​ ​to​ ​a​ ​relatively​ ​painless experience. It is also one of the ways to prevent the condom from breaking.

4. Blow Job

Lube​ ​can​ ​also​ ​be​ ​used​ ​during​ ​a​ ​blow​ ​job.​ ​In​ ​this​ ​instance,​ ​an​ ​edible​ ​range​ ​of lubes​ ​would​ ​be​ ​ideal,​ ​or​ ​even​ ​flavoured​ ​lubes​ ​if​ ​you​ ​don’t​ ​enjoy​ ​the​ ​taste​ ​of​ ​penis. The​ ​role​ ​of​ ​lube​ ​in​ ​this​ ​scenario​ ​is​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​lubrification​ ​in​ ​place​ ​of​ ​spit.​ ​Women and​ ​men​ ​often​ ​use​ ​spit​ ​but​ ​it​ ​can​ ​be​ ​hard​ ​to​ ​muster​ ​up​ ​enough,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​well lubricated​ ​mouth​ ​provides​ ​enough​ ​wetness​ ​so​ ​that​ ​your​ ​jaw​ ​won’t​ ​get​ ​tired.

5. Massage

Lube​ ​can​ ​even​ ​be​ ​used​ ​to​ ​start​ ​off​ ​a​ ​steamy​ ​sex​ ​session.​ ​Everyone​ ​knows​ ​that the​ ​most​ ​important​ ​part​ ​of​ ​sex​ ​is​ ​foreplay.​ ​One​ ​of​ ​the​ ​best​ ​was​ ​to​ ​get​ ​your​ ​partner in​ ​the​ ​mood​ ​is​ ​with​ ​a​ ​sexy​ ​massage.​ ​Since​ ​any​ ​good​ ​quality​ ​lube​ ​is​ ​body​ ​safe,​ ​it can​ ​be​ ​used​ ​as​ ​a​ ​massage​ ​oil​ ​and​ ​often​ ​are​ ​marketed​ ​as​ ​being​ ​a​ ​lube​ ​and massage​ ​oil​ ​in​ ​one.​ ​Using​ ​it​ ​to​ ​massage​ ​the​ ​erogenous​ ​areas​ ​of​ ​your​ ​partner​ ​or even​ ​a​ ​simple​ ​back​ ​rub​ ​can​ ​lead​ ​to​ ​a​ ​pleasing​ ​long​ ​lasting​ ​sexual​ ​experience leaving​ ​both​ ​you​ ​and​ ​your​ ​partner​ ​satisfied.

Now​ ​that​ ​you​ ​know​ ​the​ ​various​ ​ways​ ​that​ ​lube​ ​can​ ​be​ ​used​ ​to​ ​better​ ​your​ ​sex​ ​life, I​ ​implore​ ​you​ ​to​ ​use​ ​this​ ​knowledge​ ​to​ ​go​ ​forth​ ​and​ ​open​ ​your​ ​minds​ ​and​ ​your bodies​ ​in​ ​self​ ​and​ ​mutual​ ​exploration​ ​and​ ​see​ ​where​ ​lube​ ​can​ ​take​ ​you!
