With so many lubricants currently available on the market, it can sometimes be a rather difficult task to decide just which one is best suited for your specific needs. So what should you look for when it comes down to selecting a good lube?

Firstly you need to ensure that the lube you choose will accomplish its task; you need it to be able to enhance the pleasure which you achieve from your sexual activities - a good lubricant can add a sensuality, as well as an element of fun, to the occasion. However, some lubes can interfere with birth control methods, and sex toys, so it is vital to be aware beforehand just what you're buying. Lubricants tend to fall into one of three categories; water-based, oil-based and silicone-based:

A water-based lubricant, such as Wet Light Lubricant, is an all-purpose lube. These lubes can be used in conjunction with sex toys, condoms and latex. They're recommended for use if you suffer from sensitive skin, because they generally don't incorporate any harsh or irritating ingredients. Wet Light contains aloe vera and Vitamin E, so it nourishes the skin without causing irritation. Most water-based lubricants are BodySafe, but it is always advisable to double-check beforehand. Water-based lubes are generally thinner, so you may need to use more, and reapply as needed. On the other hand, they are easy to clean up, and cause no mess to sheets and bedding.

Silicone-based lubricants last longer when used on the skin, as they stay in place, exactly where you need. However, it should be noted that these types of lube will erode your adult toys in no time at all, and can interfere with contraceptives. Silicone-based lubricants such as Wet Platinum Lube, are long-lasting, and can be used in water, which is a major advantage for silicone lubes.

Oil-based lubricants are normally priced at the cheaper end of the lube spectrum, due to the fact that they tend to cling to the skin, and can block the pores of delicate tissue. This strain of lube should definitely not be used as an accompanied to any kind of sex aids or latex. In addition, they may trigger certain allergic reactions, and can also stain bedding; although on the plus side, they do tend to last longer than other types. Nevertheless, it's fair to say that all-in-all these lubricants are best avoided.

Of course, the best method to ascertain which type of lube you prefer, and what works best for you, is to get out there and experiment with the different types. There are plenty of options open to you, alternatives which can offer you an array of distinct sensations. Flavoured lubes like Jo Flavoured are a fun addition to play around with during an oral sex session, or else you can employ them for an erotic massage, which you can bring to a conclusion by licking clean. Alternatively, there are varieties of lubricant which stimulate by creating warming or cooling sensations due to the addition of natural ingredients to the formula, ID Pleasures, is an example of this type, a lube which contains extracts of ginkgo balboa, or menthol, to supply a heightened sense of arousal.

Some manufacturers are designing lubricants that not only do their job with regards to lubrication, but they also improve skin texture and tone; these advanced lubricators have been medically proven to remedy problems related to dermal dryness. Still other new developments in the lubricant field are able to stimulate and tighten the muscles, a sex aid which will not only strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, but also arouse while being worn; the sensations which travel through the balls provide you with a great deal of stimulation. An example of this product is the Like A Virgin Kit, which not only contains a superb lube and jiggle balls, but is accompanied by your very own training guide, enabling you to develop and tone your vaginal wall, which results in not only better sex, but also greater health as well. Or if you desire, there are special lubricants available which can also tighten your vaginal wall, such as Sure Grip; this cream claims to restore the feeling of your virginity!!

Some top-end water-based lubes perform as well as some of the silicone- and oil- based lubes with regards to sustainability and durability, but before you buy any lubricant, it is always advisable to check what it says on the label concerning its advised usage.

Lubricants can really enhance your sexual pleasure - from arousal lubes to desensitising lube, which can prolong ejaculation allowing you to last longer and stay stronger too. You don't ever really need to buy lube in bulk, because there are so many deals on lubricants to explore, and many suppliers sell smaller bottles at competitive prices, enabling you to take your time and discover exactly what each one can offer you, and how it can enhance your sexual pleasure.
