Lube Helps Condoms Feel Better
Condoms are incredibly important to use when engaging in sexual activities such as anal sex, vaginal penetration, and oral sex on penises. They prevent the spread of STIs and can help prevent unwanted pregnancies. Many condoms now have a small amount of lubricant on them to make this process easier, but not all condoms have lube on them. With friction, it can sometimes dry out the condom. We recommend a water-based lubricant, so it doesn't compromise the integrity of the latex that most condoms are made of. If you’re wearing a condom: apply a small amount of lubricant to yourself, and slowly slip the condom on. Then, after the condom is on, apply some more to prevent any tearing while you're getting it on! Have your partner apply some too, the more the merrier!

It Makes Masturbating Better!
When you want to get in touch with yourself, grab some lube first. It can immediately change the sensations when you start out! If you enjoy manual stimulation, we recommend a silicone lubricant because it’s long lasting and doesn’t wash away so easily! It requires less lube application and is especially great for masturbation in the shower. Note: make sure not to use silicone-based lubricant with silicone-based sex toys, since they can break down the toy’s rubber over time. If you’re looking to enjoy some vibes from your favorite toy, use a water-based or hybrid lubricant!
Lube Helps Anal Feel Better (And Safer)Anal is a favorite way to play for many, but it's important to know how to enjoy. A hybrid or thick water-based lube are both great to use. Since the anal cavity does not self-lubricate, lubricant not only makes it safer, but can also enhance your orgasm!

That’s why foreplay is such an important element of sex, as it gives your body ample time to match your mind. Also, some women simply don’t lubricate as much as they would like - factors such as menopause, medication, or menstrual cycle can all play a role. Lube is very helpful in taking the pressure off!
