Lubrication is the key to enjoying any type of bedroom game for gay men. While natural lubrication, such as spit, is welcome, artificial lubricants are much more fun. Gay lubes come in a huge variety. Depending on your taste, flavor, texture, and packaging preferences, you can find the perfect liquid for your use. Sexual stimulation with anal sex toys without lubrication can end up hurting you or your partner. We recommend investing in a high-quality lubricant, which can transform your sexual experience. No matter which anal dildos you use to reach the p-spot or the masturbators you play with for personal satisfaction, lube is the king! You can choose from many different lubricants. Usually, they fall into one of the three categories.
Oil-Based Lubricants: Oil-based lubricants are made with plant oil. They are strong and long lasting. These lubricants are excellent for dry and sensitive tissues. They don’t just lubricate, they protect as well. Oil-based lubes are a natural alternative to synthetic lubes, such as petroleum-based products like Vaseline. Oil-based lubes double up as massaging oils, improving your sexual pleasure and extending bedroom games. You can use these lubes all over your body. The downside of these lubricants is that they are not condom compatible. If you use a condom, you need to look for other types, for example, silicone or water-based lubes. However, if you want to have sex in the shower, an oil-based lube is the way to go since it will not wash off.
Water-Based Lubricants: As we already mentioned, you can use them with condoms. They are widely available. Unlike oil-based lubes, these products are easy to wash off with soap and water. They can be an excellent choice for your quick bedroom games. Water-based lubes provide the most natural feeling compared to others. However, due to their nature, these lubes evaporate faster than others do so you have to think about reapplying them. If you are planning an extensive BDSM shenanigan, you better opt out of this lube type. Not all water-based lubes are suitable for everyone. Some of them may contain glycerin, which can cause irritation. Others may feature parabens. It’s important to carefully read the label before buying a lubricant. At Idickted, we have an impressive choice of high-quality lubes. So you don’t have to worry stumbling upon unnecessary ingredients.
Silicone-Based Lubricants: Silicone-based lubricants have a high level of slipperiness. They are excellent for anal intercourse as well as masturbation. They can be used with latex condoms. You don’t have to worry about them getting washed off in the water. The majority of such lubricants have safe ingredients. Check the label carefully to see that they don’t contain glycols and glycerin. The big downside of such lubes is that they can damage your favorite silicone toys. So when you are planning to play with such toys, chose the above two options. The second problem with the lube is that it’s hard to wash off. Overall, silicone-based lubricants are the most popular among gay men nowadays. However, the trial-and-error method is still important.
Flavored Lubricants: If you want to add some flavor to your next sexual experience, consider investing in flavored lubes. Flavored lubricants can be either water or oil-based. They can make your oral sex session truly zesty. Remember, the flavors you’ll find in lubes are mostly artificial. So don’t expect them to taste heavenly. However, they are definitely better than non-flavored products. Lubricants are important for safe sex. That’s why you need to make sure that the one you choose is condom-compatible in case you are not 100% sure of your partner. When using a condom, don’t apply the lube directly on the penis. It should be applied over the condom. Always add a sufficient amount of lube around the anus to facilitate sexual intercourse and prevent friction, which can cause the condom to tear. Lubricants are just as fun as sex toys. When you get the hang of using them, you’ll understand how many things you can do with these liquids. We recommend browsing our lube collection and ordering several lubricants for testing. You may be surprised that some of the most popular and expensive lubes are not what you need. Meanwhile, moderately priced products can become your favorites. At Idickted, we have many years of experience helping people buy the lubes they really need. We suggest the trial-and-error method to everyone.
