One Word: Lube

As a man about to hit 40 later this year, I can tell you that I’ve been with a lady or two. I’m really not trying to brag, I’m just trying to put my views into perspective.

I always thought that there were certain things that would “prove” whether or not a woman was truly enjoying herself with a man. I grew into my 20’s thinking that orgasms were the only way to truly prove that I was half-way decent when it came to sex.

Obviously, natural lubrication was a major deciding factor, as well. I mean, if it was really difficult to actually perform the duty then that must have meant I was doing things wrong.


Not quite. I’ve learned over the years that sometimes you might need just a little bit of a boost to help things along. It doesn’t say anything one way or the other about whether I’m doing something right or not…it’s simply an assistant to the process.

So thanks to, I can now say that I have found and have embraced the wonderful world of lubrication!

I had no idea just what I was in for when I first tried it. This stuff was like magic!! Sure I had used sex toys occasionally before, but this opened up a whole new world to me. Not only did it help ease the flow of things (literally speaking), but it seemed to increase the sensitivity of certain areas to the point that HOLY CRAP it felt good!

So for those as uninformed as I was just a year or two ago, please let me educate you on what’s available out there.

Oil-based lubricants are what you normally see in adult movies. Y’know, when people are either slathered in baby oil or cooking oil or even Vaseline. The biggest concern with these is that they eat away at latex, so if you’re using a condom then you might as well be using nothing at all. The other big concern is that they’re not really good for the female va-jay-jay.  So while they may be fun for men to masturbate to (umm…at least that’s what I’ve heard), they’re not the greatest when it comes to the female form.

Water-based lubricants have the benefit of being slick without being overly messy, although I can tell you from personal experience that sometimes they can get a bit sticky…thus the need to apply more. The primary reason for this is that because they are water-soluble, the skin will absorb them. As you can imagine, if you don’t have your lube right next to you during a pretty intense sexual session, things can come to a halt pretty quick if the stickiness turns to dryness.  Of course, if you have it standing by, you can end up having some of the most incredible sexual experiences of your life.

Silicone-based lubricants are very similar to water-based lubricants, but the big difference is that they are a lot more slippery and take a much longer time to dry out.  In addition, you can actually use them IN water and they will still work.  This is great in the sense that you don’t need to constantly re-apply, but it also makes the session REALLY messy.  Of course, as with the water-based lubricant, a little soap along with the water and you’re as good as new.

As a man with a little bit of experience, trust me when I say that lubrication isn’t just for those areas that are drier than the Sahara desert; it’s for the sexual beast in all of us. All it takes is a simple visit to an online adult shop and with a few clicks of your mouse, the world will be your oyster!

Simply put, lube is one of the greatest inventions ever made…and nothing says “I love you” more than a sexy gift for the woman in your life as mother’s day approaches.
