Water-Based Lubricants Water-based lubes, such as Pjur Aqua, Swiss Navy, YES! or Astro glide may be used on virtually any body part, vibrator, masturbation sleeve, erection ring or dildo; it is the most universal lubricant, most used by couples, and is shown to be one of the safest. We’ve got the latest and greatest of the water lube world, and they are sure to have you ditching that old fashioned K-Y in no time. The greatest advantage of water-based lube is the easy cleanup: You simply rinse off the toy with warm water, and voila! The lube is gone! However, this “no muss, no fuss” quotient also has a down side — if you like to use waterproof toys (during a bath, in a hot tub, what have you), a water-based lubricant will rinse right off — which really defeats the whole purpose of using lube!You definitely want to use a water-based lube with anything made of silicone. A silicone lube used on a silicone toy will destroy the toy. Silicone lubricants should not be used on silicone solids because the lube will actually start to dissolve the solid! So stick with a water-based lube for your premium silicone toys, and use silicone lube for the purpose for which it was intended! For a water based anal experience (if silicone toys are involved), try a thicker long lasting water based like Astro glide Gel. Silicone-Based Lubricants The best thing about silicone lubricant is that it lasts…and lasts and lasts. Silicone lubes never really get absorbed or evaporate the way a water-based lube may. On the other hand, this also means that getting your toys (and yourself) clean will take a little more effort, but it certainly doesn’t need to be sandblasted off. A good soapy wash should do the trick and that can be fun in itself! Silicone lubes are the perfect choice for sensual fun in the water. If you love your waterproof toys (or just love having sex in the water), you and a silicone lubricant will be lifetime companions! Of course, a silicone-based lube is not as readily available at your corner drugstore as a water-based lube, but fortunately, you can get plenty in our store or from our online store!Another note to point out, please keep silicone lubes away from silicone toys. We love silicone toys so dearly, that we don’t want them being ruined by using the wrong lube! Maxxie’s Favorite is the super concentrated Pjur Body Glide, which also comes as Pjur Body Glide Woman, which has been specially formulated for women’s soft and sensitive skin.Oil-Based Lubricants Oil-based lube should really only be used for heavier kinds of back door play, male foreplay or men’s solo action. These lubes are great for anal play because they’re generally thicker than other types of lubricant, making entry easier. We do NOT recommend using any lubricant with a desensitizer in it, as this may aid in overlooking some medical problems. It is important that any pain or discomfort is not ignored during intimate play. A relaxant however is often desirable, such as Innuendo. Although not a lubricant, Innuendo is all natural and will help relax the muscles to make everything that little bit easier. Do not use an Oil-based lube with anything made of latex -– toys, condoms, gloves or silicone products -– as the oil will destroy the latex (or silicone) on contact. As Oil-based lubes break down the latex in condoms, practice safe sex by opting for non latex condoms (or a water or silicone lubricant) when partaking in anal penetration. Oils tends to irritate a woman’s vagina, so we don’t recommended this type of lubricant for intercourse or for use with any sort of vibrator or dildo intended for vaginal penetration. The female body cannot properly flush out the residual oil left in the body and as a result bacterial growths and other nasties can occur. Flavored Lubricants Flavored lubricants are great for oral sex and we highly recommend them. Although some may taste like cough syrup, or a chemically foreign flavor, our Swiss Navy Flavors are delicious! In Strawberry Kiwi, Pina Colada, Passion fruit or Very Cherry! As it contains no sugar, its delicious, long lasting and…makes a great dessert. Mmmm
Thats all for this week… Next time, we’ll give you a peak inside the world of actually using lubes… how much, when… and experimentation.until then… Love Maxxxie!
