Posted by Adult Luxury Head Office on

Best waterbased water-based oil sex lubricant online sex shop adult Luxury

When it comes to sex, no matter what you enjoy, you can usually play by the rule: the wetter, the better. This logic works, well, fluidly when it comes to lube, because wetter is exactly what you’re getting.

And if you associate lube with vaginal dryness only, it’s time to step out of the box. Instead, think less friction, smoother skin, and all around better sex — no matter your gender, age, or stage in life.

In fact, according to a study at one of the top universities in the world 2,453 women, participants reported that, more than 70 percent of the time, lube made sex more pleasurable and enjoyable.

Sex and relationship therapist, confirms that “needing a lubricant does not mean that you’re not interested in your partner.”

So let’s get rid of the idea that lubrication is the only indication of arousal, and let’s start trusting our partner’s words.

Think of lube as encouragement to your bits — or a way to save time, because you were supposed to be out the door 5 minutes ago. Here’s the before-play to foreplay with lube.

What type should you buy?

You’ll want to think about the different types of lube out there when choosing the one that’s best for you. Lubes come in a variety of bases:

  • water
  • silicone
  • oil
  • hybrid (combining a few of the above)

Hybrid lubes are often a combination of both water and silicone. There are many formulations to perfectly suit your needs.

How we chose

  • Price. There are many low cost, safe lube options on the market. We included a number of options at a variety of prices to best fit your budget.
  • Base. All lubricants start with a base, like oil, water, or silicone. We made sure to add in an assortment of bases so you can choose the one best fit for your needs.
  • Customer rating. Choosing a lube is a highly personal decision, but we still chose options that have high reviews from users.

Best oil-based lube

We kid — there’s no “right” way to use lube.

Need it to masturbate? In the mood but your body isn’t getting the message to start lubricating yet? Go ahead and spread… liberally.

Amanda, age 26, can’t naturally produce enough lubrication for sex. She uses lube with her partner during foreplay by rubbing it on their genitals and adding it during sex if she starts to feel uncomfortable.

Catherine, a 24-year-old account manager and avid lube user, says that she uses lube 75 percent of the time, either when she’s masturbating or when she’s with a partner.

“Even if I am wet,” Catherine says, “it’s still nice to have that little bit of extra help.”

So apply as much as you want, wherever you need it — be it on the vagina, penis, or anus.

After you’ve figured out which lube is best for you, you might want to warm it up in your hands. This isn’t necessary, but lube can be a little cold if you skip this step. If you’re using a condom, don’t forget to apply a non-oil based lube to the outside of it.

No matter if you use condoms, diaphragms, or dental dams, lube can help reduce friction and make sex more pleasurable.

How to choose

Personal lube can be a great enhancement to your intimate life, but the number of options can be overwhelming. The goal of lube for most is to decrease friction and increase comfort and pleasure, so finding what works for you is a highly personal decision.

When shopping for a lube, you’ll want to consider how you’re going to use it. If you’re going to be using a condom or silicone sex toys, you’ll need to find a compatible option.

Water-based lubes can be a great place to start because they can be used for all your needs and are excellent for people with sensitive skin. Meanwhile, silicone-based options are typically longer lasting, but they can damage silicone-based toys, as they can break down the material over time.

Lastly, oil-based lubes are also longer lasting. But do not use them with latex condoms, because they can cause them to tear or break.

When you go lube shopping, you’re going to find all sorts of options out there: flavored, natural, warming, tingling. These lubes can be fun, but be careful to look at the ingredients and test the pH value of over-the-counter products with litmus strips (like in science class).

A healthy vagina should maintain a PH level of 3.5 to 4.5, so the lube you use should also be around the same level. However, keep in mind that many lubes don’t list the pH level on the packaging, so it may be hard to verify.

Always pay attention to the ingredients listed. In fact, there are a few you may want to avoid because they may cause irritation or inflammation:

  • glycerin
  • nonoxynol-9
  • petroleum
  • propylene glycol
  • chlorhexidine gluconate

Blau also suggests finding one that’s free of parabens, glycerin, and petroleum to minimize the risk of infections. If you’re using condoms and toys, find a lube that’s latex-friendly, rubber-friendly, and plastic-friendly.

Frequently asked questions

Can you use coconut oil as lube?

Yes but not recommended, coconut oil is generally a safe, natural lube option. It can alleviate friction and vaginal dryness.

However, you’ll want to keep in mind that unrefined coconut oil has less processing and bleaching. You’ll also want to get a fresh jar that is dedicated to sexual play to keep things as clean as possible.

What can I use instead of lube?

You can use several common household items as a lube alternative if its a emergency but not recommended. These include olive oil, coconut oil, peanut oil, and aloe vera. That being said, some can increase your risk of yeast infections. They can also tear condoms, so you may want to opt for one on our list instead.

Can you use baby oil for lube?

No! While you can safely use baby oil as a skin moisturizer, do not use it as lube. Mineral oil-based products like baby oil can increase your risk of vaginal infection and can break down latex condoms.

What is lube used for?

The purpose of personal lubricant is to reduce friction and irritation during sexual activity. You can use it during sex with a partner or during masturbation. There are many safe options on the market, depending on what you are looking for.
