1. What Your Lube Choice Says About You

    How Lube Will Change Your Sex Life

    Lube, lube lube… so much choice, so much fun to be had!

    Whether you’re a hundred-bottles-hoarder or someone who views it as an occasional necessity, nearly everyone has tried it out at some point.

    Despite the mountain of different types available to play with, let’s be honest here: we all have our go-to favourite.

    Just like when you order the same meal from your local takeaway as you did last week and the week before, or when you tell yourself you’re going to be daring with your make-up, but end up doing the exact same look you do everyday, we all have our preferences and routines.

    So, what does the type of lube you love say about you? Well, just read on to find out.

    Water-Based Lube

    Shower Lube

    Ah, the classic type. The perfect all-rounder product for any sexual activity, you operate just how this lube does: no nonsense, and to-the-point.

    Satisfied with the simpler things in life, as long as your lube is as fuss-free as yourself, you know you're onto a winner.

    You're the person who is always dependable and reliable, but that doesn't have to mean boring! Oh no, it merely means you can appreciate the small, joyous things in life and in the bedroom, and know that you don't need something elaborate to have an awesome time.

    Silicone Lube

    Get you, all slinky and seductive!

    The slick nature of this lube matches your personality perfectly. Charming and thorough, passion is your middle name. You don't agree that you can have too much of a good thing, so for you, the longer-lasting, the better.

    Perhaps you can be a little self-indulgent, and you enjoy the more luxurious things in life, but you merely see it as having good taste and not being afraid to treat yourself if you feel you deserve it.

    Flavoured Lube

    You are a little ball of sunshine! Fun and cheer are your priorities, so flavoured lube is the perfect way to inject that joy into the bedroom.

    You'd much rather go through life as a series of smiles, laughter and hilarious mishaps than be serious and proper. You love surrounding yourself with people who can give you a chuckle and who you can be silly with. Brooding, moody types do not attract you, and you find a promise of a fun and slightly adventurous night in the bedroom much more appealing than a dark stare and intense atmosphere.

    An enjoyer of giving, you always leave your partner with a satisfied smile.

    Warming Lube

    Look out, we've got a feisty one here! Bold and daring, you are a thrill-seeker. Not one to shy away from a challenge, you want to get out there and try it all.

    Sky-diving? Bring it on!

    Massive rollercoaster? No sweat!

    Climbing a mountain? Did it last year, duh.

    Like how this type of lubricant brings the heat to your nether regions, that translates to you occasionally being a bit of a hot-head, but it's just because you're fearless and aren't afraid to stand up for yourself.

    Everyone around is jealous of your confidence, and why not? You already know you're awesome! Your main aim in life is to make amazing memories that you can look back on in decades to come and recount endless wild stories that you'll never forget, so when it comes to choosing lube, only the most exciting variety will do.

    Cooling Lube

    Lovehoney Peppermint Lube

    Ice princes/princesses like you aren't as cold as your reputation suggests. Calm and collected, you can often come across as aloof to people who don't truly know you.

    This isn't necessarily a bad thing though – you have a mysterious presence that is rather intriguing. For this reason, you can afford to be picky about who you let into your life and only open up to those who you truly trust. Lucky be the ones who you indeed judge to be worthy of this, because once they get to know you, they realise how soft and mushy on the inside you actually are.

    The way this type of lube works actually increases sensitivity where you apply it, so you like how it can help bring out that loving core of yours by making you feel all those bedroom activities all the more intimately.

      I really dislike this post. It feels like a bad attempt at a buzzfeed post. Overly simplified as well. Oh hot lube equals fiery personality, cold equals ice queen, and flavour is colourful and cheery. It is very obvious and boring, I miss the blog before all of the tacky student bloggers were introduced. (I am a university student myself btw but I haven't found any of the student posts to be of any interest.)

      I really enjoyed this fun, lighthearted article just like I have thoroughly enjoyed all the previous student guest author blog posts. I'm no longer a student myself but I still find them really interesting, refreshing and informative.

      I wish that there had been a much more open-minded approach to sex and relationships and such an abundance of easily accessable tips and information when I myself was a student many years ago.

      Well done and many thanks to all those who have taken the time out of their studies and submitted a blog article :)

      Hi Mistress Freja,

      Thanks for your comment, it’s always handy to have feedback on our posts. We do try to offer a mixture of the fun and the informative in our blogs, so it’s a shame to hear that this one wasn’t for you :(

      We’re very proud of our student writers and their work, and while we appreciate that not all every article will appeal to every person, we do our best to ensure nothing causes offence or upset.

      As a student, we’d definitely be interested to hear what kind of topics and articles you’d like to see on our blog - if you’d like to share your thoughts with us, then please do drop us a line at students@lovehoney.co.uk.
