A lubricant is one of the most useful sexual accessories. However, for many taboo-related reasons, it is often not used adequately. The right lubricant can completely change your sex life by reducing friction, increasing ease and sometimes sensitivity. In fact, you might find sex with a personalised lubricant to be much more enjoyable than sex without it.
Using lubricant is not difficult, you just need to know a few things to get the most out of it.
Find the best lubricant for the kind of sex you like.
Using lubricant is the easy part, choosing the right lubricant is the real challenge.
Here are a few tips:
-If you are prone to infections, avoid silicone lubricants and glycerine-containing lubricants.
-If you have sensitive skin, allergies or other chemical sensitivities, avoid those with the indication "paraben" on the label.
- Condensed lubricants such as silicone are easier to use in toys and anal play.
-Do not use silicone lubricants with silicone toys, they will break or spoil them.
- Do not use oil-based lubricants with condoms because they will probably break.
If you do not know where to start, go to a sex shop with a specialty like KinkQueer.gr and discuss what's best for your specific choices. Start with a small bottle or pack samples and try them on the wrists and inside your thighs if you are allergic.
First time using a lubricant
A little amount of lubricant ceeps the game going on, start applying the lubricant from the beginning of the sex act.
If you use your fingers and hands, put a small amount on your fingers or in the palm of your hand and rub your hands to warm them. Now touch the area where you plan to use the lubricant. Pay attention to how the skin has different feelings than touching without lubricant. If you use water-based lubricants, see how long it takes to dry out - you'll want to know about the time it takes to re-apply.
Where and how do you put it?
You need to put lubricant in your body as well as in everything else you use. Fingers, toys, or body parts of the other people are included here. Lubricating only one person / game will work, but it will be much better if all toys and people involved have a little lubricant on top of them.
If you use the lubricant for intercourse, go ahead and put some amount into yourself. This is necessary for rectal contact, but also applies to vaginal contact.
Check expiration date!
Lubricants are depleted and have an expiration date - it is important to note that the date refers to the life of the lubricant not opened. Most lubricants lose their efficacy after a while, including those that have sanitary action, so if they are old, it's likely that their use could even lead to contaminations. If in doubt, do not risk it and refresh your collection.
What about the anal game though?
If there is some kind of anal penetration, the lubricant must be involved.
The anus does not create its own lubricant like vagina, and by using lubricant you reduce the risk of fractures of the most sensitive tissues. It is better to use a thicker (condensed) lubricant for anal sex. Frequent use and maintenance of lubrication is recommended throughout the act. Use analgesic lubricants for anal sex ; always with care. Pleasure requires experience and clear limits. Above all, listen to your body.
Can a lubricate mess up my linen?
Most water based lubricants will not stain linen and pillows, but this is not a guarantee. So we recommend using it carefully (or with use of a large towel) on your favorite sheets. Many lubricants based on silicone and oil will surely stain, but some companies offer tips on how to remove stains from your covers
