Why hybrid lube

We all try our best to be educated consumers, and bedroom products are no exception. When shopping for your next bottle of lube, it’s important to look for something that will not only feel silky smooth and amazing, but also keep you safe. Many lubricant types are linked with increased risk of UTIs, and some are known for degrading condoms.

Let’s discuss the different types of personal lubricants available, and how the hybrid lube outdoes them all.

How We Love Lube: Our Top 5 Reasons to Use Lube!

Some people are hesitant to try lube because they think they shouldn’t need it. But even people who don’t need to use lube find that it helps them have more pleasurable and longer sex. Plus, there are unexpected health benefits to using lube.

1. It Makes Everything Feel Better

Fingers? Toys? Penises? Anything you can penetrate yourself with usually feels better with a dollop of lube. Insertion is easier. Plus, you can last longer, so you needn’t worry about things becoming uncomfortable if it takes you longer to orgasm!

Lube isn’t just good for the receiving partner, either. Penetrating partners can also experience more pleasure when you add a little lube to the equation.

2. It Prevents Infection

Even if you don’t feel like you need lube, not using it might lead to tiny tears and cuts. These micro-tears can become a breeding ground for a bacterial infection. What’s more, they can make it easier to contract an STI (the person on the receiving end is always at more risk).

To get more out of your lube, look for one that has an osmolality (the measurement of dissolved particles in the solution) rating on the package. For vaginal or anal use, look for a lube with an osmolality in the range of 200 and 380 mOSM/kg. Two lubes that fall into that range are Yes lube and Aloe Cadabra.

3. Your Butt Doesn’t Self Lubricate

Anal stimulation feels good for everyone regardless of gender, but no one’s butt creates lubrication like a vagina. Enter lube! It can turn something from painful or uncomfortable to pleasurable, and the reassurance allows you to relax, which only helps with penetration.

Note that you can buy anal lubes that numb or desensitize, but you actually want to feel your body’s feedback, so we don’t recommend them.

4. They Can Add Sensations

Warming? Cooling? Tingling? Arousal-enhancing? His and hers? Flavored? These are just a few lube options available. Think of sensation lube like you might condoms that have different textures. Sure, they serve a practical purpose, but they can also be just plain fun!

Psst, a silicone-based lube can also be used as a massage product. Try it out!

5. They Can Help You Get Pregnant

Most personal lube actually has a spermicidal effect, which is important to know if you’re trying to conceive. But specifically designed TTC lubes are friendlier to sperm and help you and your partner become pregnant.

Now that you know why we love lube, we hope you consider adding some to your play time! Looking for lube suggestions? Contact us and we can help!

The Amazing Warming Wand

The warming wand heats up your pleasure sleeve and gives you a more realistic experience when masturbating with sleeve type toys. It only takes about ten minutes to heat up your toy, and that gives you time to lean back, get comfortable, and start sinking into your rhythm. Once your toy is heated up you can slide in with a standard lube, or a warming one to increase the sensation you crave.

Remember when you play with new toys or lubes to test them out first and make sure that they are compatible with your toys as well as your body. Try a little bit of lube out on a small sensitive part first and pay attention to your body. When using heated toys, try it first on the inside of your wrist to gauge the heat and how hot you want it.

Have Better Anal Sex Tonight: These are the Best Anal Lubes Out There!

These are the Best Anal Lubes!

Although you might be able to get away without using lube for vaginal penetration, it’s a no-no not to use lube anally. Why? The anus doesn’t naturally lubricate like the vagina does. Not using lube not only ensures that anal sex is less pleasurable than it can be, but it can lead to painful damage to your body.

Fortunately, there are plenty of personal lubricants available, so many, in fact, that you might have a difficult time choosing the right one for you. Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered!

There are generally two schools of thought when it comes to anal lubes. You go for a thicker water-based gel that’s nice and cushy for your tushy or you choose a super-slick silicone option to make sure your partner’s penis or your favorite toy glides right in. However, water-based lubes can become sticky as they dry, and they’re not ideal for shower sex because they’re water-soluble. And silicone lubes can interact with toys made of silicone. Depending in your needs, you might want to try one of the following anal lubes.

Pjur Back Door Glide

Pjur is a brand known for its silicone-based lube. If you prefer something thinner but longer-lasting for anal sex, then Back Door Glide is right up your alley. It contains Jojoba to soften your skin and ease penetration. The lube will last until you wash it off, but you may want to take care not stain sheets by putting down a towel.pjurlube

Pjur Back Door Comfort Water Anal Glide

Not everyone likes silicone. For those users, there is Pjur’s water-based Anal Glide. This personal lubricant is safe for use with all your toys. One of the ingredients is hyaliuronan, which helps the lubricant to remain slick and not sticky as it dries. An added benefit of this ingredient is the ability to help cells repairs themselves!

Wicked Jelle Water-Based Anal Lubricant

Thin anal lubricants can drip and become messy. That’s not the case with Wicked Jelle, a water-based anal lube that’s designed to stay exactly where you put it, making cleanup a breeze. It will also cushion your anus during sex. The texture is similar to silicone lubricant.

System Jo Hybrid

System Jo brings the best of both worlds with this hybrid lubricant. It combines coconut oil, which is an ideal anal lube, with water-based lube. The result? A creamy anal lube that will make all your anal play Heavenly while moisturizing your skin. Use it with toys

because there’s no silicone, but opt for another anal lube from this list if you’re using condoms.

Swiss Navy Anal Lube

The final anal lube on this list is a premium lube from Swiss Navy. If you’re hesitant to try anal sex
