Water Based Lubrications
A water based lubrication is the most popular choice for vaginal intercourse because it has a natural feeling consistency. It has the closest makeup to a woman's own natural moisture when compared to other types of lubrications. Water based lubes are all completely safe to use with condoms as well as toys. High quality water based lubrications that are purely made and free from chemical additives present no risk of adverse skin reactions. The only downside to using a water based lubrication is that it will slowly evaporate and absorb into the skin, so it may need to be re-applied.
Silicone lubrications are usually thicker than water based, and are much more slick. Less lubrication is needed when using silicone, so a little bit will go a long way! It does not need to be re-applied like a water based, as it will not evaporate. Silicone is water resistant, making it the best choice for shower play. The downside to silicone is that it is not recommended for use with toys or condoms because it has the potential to be damaging to certain materials.
Unlike typical lubrications, an anal lubrication has an anti-bacterial agent to help kill any pesky back door germs. Some anal lubrications also contain a mild numbing agent, to help ease any discomfort felt during anal intercourse. Anal lubrications can be found in silicon and water based forms. Typically, a silicon lubrication is best for anal play, since it is very slick and will not dry out.
Stimulating Lubrications, Creams and Gels
For added excitement during vaginal intercourse, you may wish to try a stimulating lubrication with a warming, cooling and/or tingling effect. A warming sensation is created by adding ginseng to a lubrication, while a cooling or tingling effect is typically created by adding menthol. The increased stimulation can take you from "good" to "wow!"
