Choosing A Lube: The Best Type of Lube for You

Choosing A Lube: The Best Type of Lube for You

We know our lube here at Juntos. But with so many varieties on the market today it can be a slippery slope when deciding which to choose when it comes to you and your partner’s satisfaction in the bedroom (or wherever). We’ve broken down the three main types to help you decide.

Oil-based lubricants

Oil-based lubes can be natural or synthetic, manufactured or found in your kitchen cabinet. Though products like Crisco and baby oil can work wonders on your skin, they’re typically not recommended for sexual pleasure. Why? Simply speaking, oil and condoms don’t get along. Oil deteriorates latex, so avoid it to prevent any unwelcome surprises. Not only that, some oils are irritating for women, so if you do choose this route do so with caution. Overall, oils are best used for massages and personal male lubrication.

Silicone-based lubricants

Not to be confused with computer chips or breast implants, silicone lubes are among some of the more popular products. They tend to last longer than their water-based counterparts, and are great for those instances of extended playtime. A little goes a long way with silicone, so use sparingly. It’s a tad more difficult to clean up than other lubes, but this makes them great to use in water. They’re also good to go with condoms.

Water-based lubricants

Water-based lubes are typically cleaner than their heavier counterparts. They’re less sticky and much slicker, making for a smoother transition. Because of this, however, you may find yourself needing to reapply them more frequently. Even so, they’re great to use paired with condoms, and some even come in a variety of flavors to add another dimension to the foreplay. Be mindful of those that contain glycerin—the sugar has been known to cause infections in the ladies.

No matter you and your partner’s preference, there is something to satisfy every lover’s needs. Here at Juntos Lubricants we pride ourselves in our high-quality products, and we want to ensure your satisfaction at all levels. Browse our products page to see what we have in store!
