Sex is a common subject –very common. So much so that a lot of work, money, and research have been put into it to make it more pleasurable, fancier and, yes, healthier.
As much as sex needs to be pleasurable, it also needs to be a healthy experience–very important. You can’t have one without the other and this is where condoms and lubricants come in.
Ironically, most people are still in the dark about the use of condoms, worse even is the case of the use of lubricants. If you ask some they’ll say they’ve never really bought or used a lubricant before.
So, here is your ultimate guide to choosing condoms and lubricants.
Let’s start with lubricants, shall we? You’re all tense and worked up and in need of ‘action’ but your lady isn’t really in the mood, but she agrees anyway. And when you try to go in, you hear her wince in pain. Uh-oh, the danger sign. Instead of causing pain to her because her vagina may still be dry, why not apply a lubricant. You’re essentially saying ‘okay body, you’re out of action and I’m just gonna jump start you with this’. And it works. Remember, a dry vagina can cause sores and wounds to her, and awkward please-finish-quick sex; you don’t want that.
Here’s what you have to look out for when choosing a lubricant:
HEALTH: Obviously. Your health matters when it comes to making a choice in lubricants. Your age and the medications you take may affect you and can cause you to have a dry vagina or maybe vaginal infections, so you’ll need a glycerin-free brand of lubricant.
TASTE: Not as weird as you think. If you want your man to go down on you certainly he’s going to have a taste of the lubricant you applied not ten minutes ago. So the taste definitely matters; a wrong, slightly-awful taste is enough to ruin your session so look out for flavored lubricants. The good news is there are different flavors like banana, chocolate, strawberry, e.t.c
TYPES AVAILABLE: Something else to look out for is the types of lubricants available. There are many different types of lubricants available like water-based, which wash off very easily with water, Silicone-based, which last longer than water-based but doesn’t wash off up so easily unless, with the use of soap, it also works really well with a condom. There are also Oil-based lubricants, now these last really long and have a pleasant feel to it, not a good choice with a condom. Aloe vera based lubricants are also available, this is a good choice because it is extremely soothing to your skin and has healing properties.
Allergies: Now this is something you don’t want to make a mistake with. We’re humans and it’s quite natural for our bodies to react differently to various products, including lubricants. Imagine the bummer if you turn out to be allergic to the lubricant you just applied –I assure you your attention will not be on sex at that moment. So what you do is rub a tiny amount of the lubricant on a part of your arm and see if there are any reactions like reddening, numbness or itching. So buy a few and test them, before picking the right/suitable one.
