Buying guide - Lubricants

Lubricants are essential products to improve pleasure and comfort during sexual intercourse or intimate play. They can make the experience more enjoyable by reducing friction and making penetration easier. However, with a variety of lubricants available on the market, it can be difficult to know which one to choose. This guide will help you better understand the different types of lubricants and make an informed choice for unforgettable intimate moments. We'll focus on the two most important types of lubricants: water-based and silicone-based.

Water-based lubricant:
- Suitable for most people, including those with sensitive skin.
- Compatible with all sex accessories, including silicone ones.
- Easy to clean, washes easily with water.
- May require more frequent reapplication than other types of lubricants.

Silicone-based lubricant:
- Provides long-lasting lubrication, does not require frequent reapplication.
- Ideal for underwater intercourse, as it does not dissolve.
- Compatible with condoms.
- It is possible to use it with glass or stainless steel accessories, but it is not recommended for silicone accessories, as it could damage them.
- May be more difficult to clean, sometimes requires soap to completely remove lubricant.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Lubricant

1. Skin sensitivity: If you have sensitive skin, choose a water-based lubricant without fragrance or flavor.

2. Type of play: Water-based lubricants are perfect for role play and penetration. Silicone-based lubricants are recommended for massage, friction play, and anal penetration because it does not dry quickly.

3. Condoms: If you use condoms, choose a water-based lubricant to avoid damaging them.

4. Erotic accessories: If you use accessories, be sure to choose a lubricant that is compatible with the material of the accessory. Water-based lubricant is very often your best ally with erotic accessories.

5. Texture: Lubricants can be smooth or thick. Try different textures to find the one that best suits your needs.

Additional Tips:
- Choose a water-based lubricant if you are new to this, as they are the most versatile and easy to use.
- Always check the ingredients to avoid any risk of allergies or irritation.
- If you use erotic accessories, make sure they are compatible with the lubricant you choose.
