Silicone And Lubricants: What Works And What Doesn’t
Using lube is great! It can help you have more fun with your toys. Here’s how to do it right:
- If you can, don’t go for the cheapest options. Cheap lubricants are filled with ingredients that can cause irritation and infections. Avoid glycerine, parabens, propylene glycol, petroleum and its derivatives.
- Water-based lube is an ideal choice to use with silicone toys. It’s easy to clean and shouldn’t stain
- If your lube starts to dry out, the solution is to add more water, not lube
- Silicone lubes are great to use because they don’t dry out as fast and are usually thicker than water-based lubes, but you can’t use them with silicone toys!
- Oil-based lubricants are safe to use with silicone toys. However, they should not be used together with latex. Depending on where you live, though, a good-quality oil-based lubricant may be the hardest to find from these three types mentioned
- Always patch test before going all in if the product/brand you’re using is new to you
- Read the label and try to remember when you cracked open that bottle so you can always stay safe and healthy
