Discover the Best Lubes for All The Different Sex Acts You Do
The Difference Between Water-Based Lubricant, Silicone Lubricant, and Oil Lubricant
Happy Masturbation Monday! Many people have asked me about the best lubes out there in the world. So today I’m going to break it down for you.
There are three main kinds of lubricants: water-based lubricants, silicone-based lubricants, and oil-based lubricants. Under each of these are sub-categories like edible lubricant, heating lubricant, cooling lubricant etc.
Each of these three main types of lubricants offer different experiences for sexual pleasure.
Below are my thoughts and opinions on some of the best lubricants for each category and what these lubricants are good for in the bedroom (or wherever you happen to be doing it).
What are water-based lubricants best for in the bedroom?
Water-based lubricants are a good standard default lube to have. They can be used for all types of play with all types of people and all types of toys.
The number one concern with water-based lubricants is that they dry out quickly. If they’re a good water-based lubricant they can be revived with a bit of spit or you can always apply more. Of course, there are better options for anal sex since water-based lubes do dry out so fast and no one wants to fuck or be fucked in a dry ass.
If you’re going to use a water-based lubricant for anal sex I suggest purchasing a thicker, jelly-like water-based lube. This is also good if you’re planning to use toys in the butt as some toys are not compatible with the other types of lubricants.
Some people do not like water-based lubricants because they think they’re too sticky. These people are correct, some water-based lubricants are too sticky, which is why you have to get the best water-based lubricants.
Another big deal is that the cheap-ass water-based lubes often contain animal glycerin and/or parabens, which can throw off the PH balance for women and cause yeast or bacterial infections. If you are a woman do not use cheap-ass animal glycerin lube or you will be fucked in a way you do not want to be fucked.
Dudes you can use the cheap ass lube for wanking off and it works just fine as it’s much less likely to mess up your junk.
This is also an issue when it comes to flavored lubes. The sugars in flavored lubes can throw-off the PH Balance as well. Sugars can often trigger yeast infections. These flavored lubes listed below are sugar-free and actually taste decent. Personally not a big fan of flavored lubes as I like the taste of dick and I like the taste of pussy but I suppose if could be fun to change it up and have a pineapple penis or a tangerine twat every once in a while.

What are silicone-based lubricants best for in the bedroom?
Silicone lubricant is super slick and works best for all people combinations but is not great to eat and will destroy the material on your silicone toys (can be used with glass, metal, etc.).
It has also been known to cause staining on sheets.
Silicone lubricant is one of the best choices for penetrative sex (anal or vaginal) because it takes very little and you do not have to reapply it very often. It can also be used in water and will not come off (though you probably will).

What are Oil-Based Lubricant best for in the bedroom?
Usually, oil-based lubricants use coconut oil, smell really good, and are edible. These types of lubricants are best to use with people you are fluid-bound with as they are not compatible with condoms. Woo for Play sent me a sample to try and it’s amazing, great for masturbation and condom-less sex. It also tastes and smells like a fucking cookie, which puts a new spin on that old Limp Bizkit song. Yes, sir, I will take that cookie and stick it up my ass, thank you very much.
