The Ultimate Guide to Lube - Honour Blog The Ultimate Guide to Lube

Lube is one of the easiest ways to make sex more enjoyable, particularly if you struggle with loosening up. There are three main kinds of lubricant – water based, oil based, and silicone based.

REMEMBER – Do NOT use oil based lube when using condoms, as it breaks down the rubber, and leaves you at risk of pregnancy or an STI.

Water based lube is the easiest to come by, and you can pick up something like K-Y Gel even in your local pharmacy. Although it does dry a little quickly, meaning you need to reapply it more often, this also means it leaves no residue. Its safe for use in the body, and won’t damage your toys – however might be a little lightweight for some.

Silicone lube stays wet for longer, meaning its great for longer sessions, and is better than water based lube for when you’re getting into a tighter spot, as you would when having anal sex. However, it can be noted that silicone lube does not react well to silicone sex toys – it will start to erode the material, leaving it prone to collecting bacteria (no thanks!).

When it comes to any kind of anal play, the thicker the lube the better. As this area doesn’t have a natural lubricant (like the vagina), it’s super important to remember to lube up to avoid doing damage. Many brands do special anal lubes designed for this purpose – want to heat things up in the bedroom? 

Looking for a way to make oral even more enjoyable? Flavoured lube is your new best friend. In flavours like cherry, mango, and bubblegum – you’re sure to find a flavour that gets your taste-buds tingling.

So if you’re planning to get into any tight spots this Valentines Day, or just want to get everything gliding a little more smoothly shop lube and oils here
