For a more pleasurable, satisfying experience, add personal lubricants to your sexual play. These specialized lubricants are designed to be safe for use in sensitive areas, such as the vagina, penis, and anus. The thicker consistency helps mimics a woman’s natural lubrication and provides a much smoother, enjoyable experience during intercourse, masturbation, or adult toy play.

The best part about personal lubricants is they come in a wide variety of types, scents, consistencies, and more. If you’re brand new to lubricants, also called lubes, start simple with one of the more popular varieties, such as Astroglide or Pjur Original Bodyglide. These are both unscented and work well for all types of bedrooms (or any place the mood might strike) play.

It’s essential to pay close attention to the type of personal lubricants you use to ensure they’re safe to use on your skin, with adult toys, and with contraceptives, such as condoms. For example, petroleum jelly can work as a lube but doesn’t last as long, which may damage condoms. It’s better to use lubes that are made specifically for sex for increased pleasure for everyone involved. Also, check ingredients if you have any sensitivities. Organic lubes, such as Sliquid Silver Silicone Lube are perfect for a long-lasting, natural lubrication feel even if you have susceptible skin.

Wet Dessert has all the juicy flavors that make sex tasty and pleasurable, such as whipped cream, frosted cupcake, tropical, and even a sampler to find out what you like best.

Depending on what type of sexual play you’re interested in, you might want to try different varieties of personal lubricants to see which ones feel better. For instance, a thicker, water-based formula, such as Sliquid Sizzle is ideal for anal sexJapanese lubes have the highest quality and long-lasting such as Pepee Lube.

A little lube goes a long way. Just keep a bottle or two by your bedside for instant lubrication for a fun solo session with your favorite vibrator or to keep things nice and slick for hours of passion.
