Let's talk lubes, shall we? Slippery, slidey, moisture-adding, friction-banishing — lubrication is a key part of sex, but it's not something that usually gets a ton of attention. For a lot of people and a whole lot of sex acts, the right lube is crucial to enjoyment and even safety, so it definitely should!

Now, we've noticed that there can be some stigma surrounding "needing" lube. While it's true that many bodies can produce their own lubes, in a lot of cases and for any number of reasons, sometimes production just doesn't match demand. In the case of anal sex, there's no natural lube produced by the body at all. So, whether you're feeling a little dry, playing with toys made of certain materials, exploring butt penetration or merely wishing for a little (or a lot) of extra glide, you'll definitely want to use some lube or anal balm!

Versatile, water-based lubes are your best bet for the majority of sexy doings. Safe for use with all toy materials and condoms, perfect for skin-to-skin contact and easy to clean, a good water-based lube should be in everyone's bedside table or toy chest. The one downside to a water-based formula is that it eventually dries and can get sticky or tacky — not exactly what you're going for. The good news is that slipperiness re-activates with more moisture, so whether that's more lube or even saliva, you'll be good to go again.

Don't want to re-apply? A silicone lubricant won't quit at an inopportune time and can even be used in water. Silicone lubes are safe for use with most toy materials and condoms as well, but keep in mind that they can't be used with silicone toys. They're also harder to clean from skin and fabric, but longevity and intense glide can trump that con. For the best of both worlds (water and silicone, that is), opt for a hybrid lube.

Oil-based lubes are a bit of an underdog. They're not very versatile and can't be used with most toys — they should never be used with condoms either. Latex and oil are a no-no! Oil-based lubes do shine when it comes to masturbation though — particularly if you've got a penis. Extra slippery and usually very thick, they're perfect for stroke sessions and external massage.
