Slippery, safe sex is the hottest kind of sex. Lube, for instance, is one the best sex toys out there. It makes everything feel just that much more … more, lets you play harder and longer, and is essential for anal play. Condoms and other barriers prevent unintended sharing of bodily fluids; playing safe lets you feel confident, and frees you to pay attention to pleasure and fun instead of worry about STIs or pregnancy.
A few words of caution. If you have super-sensitive skin you may want to avoid any lube that uses methylparaben as a preservative. If you're prone to yeast infections lubes with glycerin or sugar may trigger them.
Lube makes a slippery situation even more slippery, lessens the chance of condom breakage, lets you give your guy the hand job of his life, is absolutely essential for anal play, and can even be substituted for hair gel in a pinch. All of the lubes we sell are slippery, and they're all nicer than KY and safer than oil (remember, any oil product will eat your latex and upset your vaginal microcosm).
All water-based lubes eventually dry up because the water evaporates; some last longer than others: H2O, Probe, and O'My are quite long-lasting, but may dry with a "sticky" feeling because they contain glycerine.
Lubes that don't contain glycerine, like Slippery Stuff, Eros Woman, and Maximus, are nice because they don't get sticky and won't feed a yeast infection.
If you have very sensitive skin you may want to try one of the all-natural lubes, such as O'My, Hathor, or Probe, because they have no synthetic preservatives like methylparaben.
If you're looking for a lube that won't dry up, get sticky and doesn't contain glycerine Eros Bodyglide or Eros Woman are good. The downside is that they're silicone based so they cannot be used with silicone toys.
Slippery Stuff is our overall favourite staff pick because it is silicone- and latex-friendly, doesn't contain glycerine, lasts quite a while, doesn't get sticky—and it's pretty cheap.
Most barriers are available primarily in latex which can be frustrating for someone with latex allergies. Gloves come in many different materials including nitrile and vinyl, but there is little choice when it comes to latex-free condoms, and the only latex-free oral dam we can think of would be plastic kitchen wrap. Keep in mind that something is better than nothing when it comes to barriers but plastic wrap hasn't been tested to find out just how much safer it makes sex.
