What is Lube?
Wetter is better, and that's a fact.
Lube comes in a number guises (more on those below), each one a luscious liquid designed to get things moving smoothly in the bedroom. The main job of lubricants is to reduce the natural friction that can occur during all sorts of play. Less friction means there’s less chance of chafing, straining, and accidents. And that means you can focus on your own pleasure in all its slippery glory.
We believe everyone should try lube at least once, and bet you'll be hooked once you do. No matter what you want, whether it’s vaginal lubrication, anal lubricant, lubricant for intercourse or something to add extra tingle to your mingle, you'll find it all here.
Why Do People Use Lube?
For some strange reason, lube has a bit of a negative reputation. It seems many people think this marvellous liquid is a treat only to be enjoyed by lovers on the older end of the scale. And while we love our sexy seniors, lubricants are for absolutely everyone.
Just a squirt of the good stuff and you can elevate your couple’s play, add a new dimension to masturbation, reduce the risk of breaking condoms, and make anal adventures a heck of a lot more comfortable.
The reason good lube is a must-have boudoir accessory is that it removes friction. This makes sex and masturbation even more pleasurable as it reduces any possible chafing and supports insertion.
It’s also absolutely essential for any sort of anal play. Because your tush doesn’t provide its own lubrication the way a vagina does, it’s really important to use a generous amount. Not only does this help with insertion but it also gives the receiver a much more pleasurable experience.
How to Choose the Best Lube for You?
Choosing the best lubricant really depends on where you’re going to be putting it.
Water-based lube is like that one friend who looks good in everything - it’s a multi-talented beast. Not only is it condom safe but it’s also always sex toy compatible, won’t stain your sheets and is easy to wash off.
Anal lubes are thicker, water-based lubricants designed specifically for bum fun. These assist with glide during play and are suitable for use with condoms and all anal toys. Some even boast formulas that relax muscles for even better play.
If you’re looking for nookie that’s kind to nature, consider using an organic lube. Containing organically produced ingredients, organic lubricants are formulated using as many natural ingredients as possible to ensure a body-safe sexual experience that won’t irritate your skin. Created using plant extracts, botanical oils and other naturally sourced ingredients, these organic sex lubes are the most natural way to enhance your physical pleasure.
For oral play, we’ve got a wide range of flavoured lubes. These enhance oral sex by adding a tasty flavour into the mix. Treat your dick to a hint of caramel, or cover your cooch in raspberries - you can even pretend it counts as one of your five a day.
