What Makes Lube So Great

It’s the key to better sex with yourself.

If you’re still using hand lotion after all these years, swap it out for something that is essentially made for the purpose. Sex lubricants are designed to be safe for your genitals. They won’t have all kinds of chemicals you can’t pronounce or greases that can stick to your bits and cause infections or irritations.

Transgender women need lube for better sex.

Be a gentleman and always keep single-use lubricant packets on hand in a variety of formulas. No woman wants to dip into a bottle that’s had someone else’s fingers or germs in it. Her vagina doesn’t create moisture the way a cis woman’s does, and to keep sex comfortable and pain free, she will appreciate your consideration.

It’s the most reliable aid for all women of all ages to keep enjoying sex.

Cis women benefit from a bit of help too. Some women naturally create more vaginal lubrication than others. Medications can throw off production, as can hormones, stress, and nutrition changes. So whether or not a woman is transgender, keep those pillow packs handy!

Find your groove, but experiment too.

Find your favorite lube, but it doesn’t hurt to have a few kinds of hand. They are economical for what they give. Some last longer than others, some are stickier, some are better for toys.
