Selecting and Using a Lubricant
Lubricants are essential to fun and safe play during sex. You will find that the use of a lubricant will ease any discomfort you may experience and may make sex more enjoyable in general. There are many types of lubricant to choose from and the choice is completely up to you.
The Ideal Choice
There are two main types of lubricant – water based and silicone based. Water based lubricants can get absorbed by the body so they stop working after some time, however you can reapply and some of them also refresh with water making them perfect for sex in the shower. If you're incorporating toys into your play, sticking with a water based lube that you enjoy is definitely best if you're unsure what type to purchase. This is because it won't break down your latex condoms or silicone toys over time. If you have sensitive skin or react easily to certain products, make sure you are checking for glycerin or cellulose content, as this may cause women to become more susceptible to various uncomfortable infections such as thrush and yeast infections.
Silicone based lubricants are great for anal sex and any type of sex where the lubricant needs to be very long lasting. Most of these are not compatible with condoms or silicone toys so you must be mindful of that when making your selection. They are never sticky, completely condom safe, and can be used in water! Unlike some lubes that begin to feel sticky or slimy, silicone lubricants always remain slick and very silky feeling.
We at D.VICE do to not carry any oil-based lubricants, because they are incompatible with condoms and dental dams (the oil dissolves the latex, and they are no longer safe to use). While there are oil-based lubricants on the market, they’re generally desired for male masturbation. The oil can disrupt the internal health of the vagina in addition to everything else, so we definitely do not recommend using it.
Efficient, Safe and Pleasant Use
A little goes a long way with a quality lubricant. The products sold at D.VICE are long lasting and do not leave a sticky residue as they do not contain glycerine. If you find that you are allergic to certain substances, D.VICE also has organic and natural options to suit everyone.
The most important thing when choosing a lubricant is to find the right one for you. This may take some trial and error but you will find the perfect lubricant!
