Lubricants: the ultimate sex essential that every pleasure enthusiast needs in their collection! Whether you’re engaging in foreplay with your partner or you want to make your sex toys easier and more comfortable to play with, lubricants are versatile enough to accommodate any sex act you want to enjoy. They also can help improve or prevent conditions such as vaginal dryness and skin chafing. Since there are plenty of lubricant variations, this is your go-to guide for all lubricant information. You can find more lubes to add to your stash for all kinds of naughty occasions.

Anal Lubricants

Perfect for anal sex toys or booty romps with your partner, anal lubricants are essential for your pleasure and safety. Since the anal area isn’t self-lubricant like the vagina, it’s important for you to properly prep yourself for any type of anal play. Anal lubricants are specifically designed to provide long-lasting lubrication for comfortable and pleasurable stimulation. To make it easier to coat the anal canal with lube, try the Lube Tube Applicator where you put an amount of lubricant inside the tube, slide the tube inside you, and push the lubricant out of the tube into your anal hole.

Flavored Lubricants

Make oral sex extra sweet with a flavored lubricant! Safe to lick and taste, these lubricants are infused with delicious flavorings that are typically fruit-flavored to make oral sex even more pleasurable for both partners. You can use flavored lubricants for foreplay fun, too, such as nipple play and teasing your love with body licking. Keep in mind that these lubricants can contain sugar, which can cause yeast infections in women, so it’s best to use flavored lubes for external use only unless otherwise stated on the label.

Organic Lube

Made with pure, body-safe ingredients, organic lubes are excellent alternatives to regular lubricants and are great for pleasure seekers who are more conscious about what they use on the most sensitive parts of their body.

Organic lubes also contain no parabens or other harmful ingredients so that you have a completely natural and clean lubricant to use for sexual pleasure.

Erotic Massage Oils & Creams

Enjoy the foreplay thrills of an erotic massage session with your partner by using one of our sexually stimulating erotic massage oils and creams! The difference between oils and creams is that the oils are slicker and spread more easily. They’re also longer lasting compared to creams and make your body sleek and shiny, which enhances the eye candy factor. Creams are typically thicker and create a silky soft surface when applied to skin. Both types of erotic massage products are moisturizing and sensual, so you can your partner can enjoy massage oils and creams to your liking. Many massage oils and creams are edible for an extra fun factor for all your foreplay needs.

A special kind of massage oil is the 2-in-1 massage candle. This candle not only sets a sexy bedroom ambience, but it also melts into a warm, luxurious massage oil that you can drizzle over your lover’s body. The massage oil and candle duo is specially made for safe application to the skin. An example of a massage oil candle is the LELO Massage Candle All-natural Soy Based. These make great gift basket items for your friends or party favors at bachelorette parties.

Silicone Lubricants

Silky smooth and long-lasting, silicone lubricants are fantastic for those marathon lovemaking sessions with your partner or hours of naughty play with your favorite sex toys. These waterproof lubricants are more versatile compared to water-based lubricants since you can use them in the shower and bath for erotic water adventures with your toys or your lover. Silicone lubes, just like silicone sex toys, are hypoallergenic and are safe to use, especially for those with extra sensitive skin.

Note: Keep in mind that silicone lubricants should not be used with silicone-made sex toys. If you use a silicone lube with a silicone toy, the material can break down quicker and damage your toy.

These gels typically have a main ingredient that creates the tingling feeling like the peppermint oil in the Goodhead Mystical Mint Oral Delight Gel and are formulated to enhance targeted stimulation. You can find stimulating gels for the clitoris, female G-spot, male prostate, and more.

Many vegan lubes are also organic and made with all natural ingredients for a safer and better alternative to other lubricants. Anal lubricants, stimulating gels, and personal lubes are just a few examples of vegan, cruelty-free sex enhancing products in our Vegan Lubricants collection.

If you’re looking for a way to explore various sensations during intercourse or masturbation, these exhilarating lubes deliver exciting stimulation. For example, warming lubricants work great with lifelike vaginas since men can create their own partner and make the experience even more realistic; on the other hand, women can use warming lubes with realistic dildos.

Water-Based Lubricants

Smooth and slippery, water-based lubes are easy to use and a breeze to clean-up compared to silicone lubricants. They also tend to be less sticky and tacky, so they’re not as messy and troublesome as other lubes. You can also use water-based lubes with all kinds of sex toys, even silicone ones; silicone lubricants can’t be used with silicone sex toys since they can break down the material. If you want the long-lasting elements of a silicone lubricant along with the benefits of a water-based lube, you can try a hybrid like the Wicked Hybrid Water & Silicone-based Hybrid Lubricant and Bust It Nut Butter Hybrid Glide 4 oz.

Female Lubricants

Ladies, if you’re experiencing vaginal dryness during intercourse or when you’re playing with your sex toys, add a female-friendly lubricant to your collection. Lubricants help combat common problems such as dryness so that you can have a better sexual encounter. This is especially important for women who are going through menopause since one of the typical symptoms is vaginal dryness; even in your later years, you don’t have to put an end to your sex life. From clitoral stimulating gels to hybrid water-silicone lubricants, you can find a wide variety of lubricants just for women to use for your everyday pleasure.
