Lubrication

Slippery When Wet!

The wetness of sex is in our language ("that makes me wet!") and inour bodies. It's a truth of female sexual response. When women areturned on, there is an increase in vaginal lubrication. Thislubrication protects the mucous membranes of the vagina from beingdamaged during penetration, and it makes for smooth, slick, morepleasurable penetration. But the amount of natural vaginal lubricationcan really vary. Often it is not enough to go the distance through anentire sexual encounter. There are many factors affecting women'snatural vaginal lubrication. Lubrication is a hormone thing; it variesduring our cycle and is affected by such factors as smoking, diet,caffeine, medication and age, to name a few. Also, condoms and otherlatex safe sex barriers are drying, so using water-based lube withlatex is vital for pleasurable safer sex.

So Many Lubes...

The joy of lube isn't a female sexual secret. Plenty of guysdiscover the joy of a dollop of massage oil or butter in their palmduring adolescent masturbation. Oils stay slicker for longer thanwater-based lube and are generally thicker. But oils will break downlatex-?so no Vaseline, Crisco, massage oil, or mayonnaise from thefridge if you are practicing safer sex. Oils don't break down quickly,and are an inviting host for bacterium. Since using soap inside thevagina is bad for vaginal health, introducing oils into the vagina is abad idea. For pussy play, use water-based lubes. As for back-doordelights, the difference between ecstatic anal sex and a painfulexperience can be a generous application of a thicker lube likeLiquid Silk. If you're looking for a long-lasting lube, considerthe new brand of silicone-based lubes like Eros. These stay slick for along time, and won't wash off with water, so they're great for sex intubs or showers (it washes off with soap and water). Silicone lubes arenot always compatible with silicone toys, so don't use them together.
