Everything you need to know about lubricants

A lubricant is a substance with high viscosity that simulates the natural lubrication of the female body. Because of its properties, it facilitates intimacy by easier penetrations, avoiding the discomfort of dry friction, as well as enhanced experiences thanks to the advances in consistency, formulas and delivery systems.

Like in our other articles, it is important to know your body. Some women prefer more lubrication to avoid discomfort or simply the body does not produce enough natural lubrication and needs a little help. For that reason it is important to always have in hand a good quality lubricant so all sexual encounters are completely pleasant. At New Fine Arts, there are many options, but the most suitable lubricant will depend on the type of use it is intended for.

Water-Based Lubricants

Water-based lubricants are the most common in general, and the most natural as well. They are preferred because generally they do not stain, are fresh, evaporate quickly and are compatible with condoms as well as almost all types of adult toys. Compared versus silicone-based lubricants, which must be removed with soap or water, they are very easy to clean. However, it should be remembered that, due to their own base, they lose their properties in contact with water, so they should not be used while immersed in water, like hot tubs.

Silicone-Based Lubricants

Because of their silicone-based formula, these lubricants are denser and creamier in texture; usually recommended for women with vaginal dryness. Thanks to their properties and stickiness the penetration gets more comfortable for the partners. They last much longer versus the water-based and it requires less product as well. Another pro is that unlike the water-based ones, the silicone-based require one application against several of the former. Another pro is the ability to be immersed in water without losing effectiveness. However, you must be careful: they should not be used with silicone sex toys because they can break or cause irritation. Silicone-based lubricants can make sex a more pleasurable experience by reducing friction during intercourse or personal intimacy.

Flavored Lubricants

At the moment of having oral sex, a flavored lubricant may be the best option. Flavored lubricants increase the fun in fore playing games, intercourse and, especially, oral sex. Enhance your bedroom fun with products designed to boost flavors and sensitivity during oral sex. From fruity to atypical flavors such as bacon or adult libations; flavored lubricant, are water-based, condom compatible, non-staining, and easy to wash. They are gentle on the skin and will add a delicious flavor and aroma to most intimate moments.

Other Recommendations

Always pay attention to the expiration date of the product… because yes, a lubricant does expire! When buying a lubricant, it is important to read the ingredients and know your body as well as any allergies. Allergies to these products can occur. These will be noted when using the lubricant and an irritation or itching in the contact area appears. In case of suspected allergic reaction, discontinue the use and if discomfort continues, visit your doctor. Always buy them in an established adult store and with the packaging in good condition.
