The different types of personal lubricants and their uses
Personal lubrication is important as it adds to pleasure-enhancing sex and also adds to the comfort of penetration – with fingers, toys or a penis. Lubrication is also used to enhance sensation and sensitivity during masturbation. Keep the Vaseline for hand jobs and away from sex toys! Read on to find out more.
There are three different types of personal lubricants
1. Oil based lubricant
Not compatible with latex condoms – they dissolve them! Also difficult to clean and can stain bedding. This is also not good to use with silicone and jelly sex toys as they can damage the finish. Oil based lubricant is best suited for tried and tested solo hand jobs only!
2. Silicone based lubricant
Can't be used with any sex toys containing silicon or jelly material as it can bond to the material and damage the surface. Silicone based lubricant is great for glass and metal sex toys. It is also the preferred lube when it comes to anal sex as it is super slick and long lasting.
3. Water based lubricant
Safe with condoms, contain no oils and are easy to clean and does not stain. Water based personal lube is ideal for use with all sex toys. At Moodtime we recommend using water-based lubricants with all toys.
