Guide to Cooling Lubricants
It is really easy to put our expectations into little, specific boxes. We learn something we like, we refine something we like and then we go back to that something we like time and time again. There is absolutely nothing at all wrong with this! Finding pleasure and holding on to it is an important part of our lives. However, it is also good to push the boundaries of that box from time to time.
One of the sexiest ways to spread your sexual wings is to seek out different sensations for your skin. You can try different positions, outfits, toys and other ways to orgasm - but what we feel on our skin can set entirely different moods and create whole new scenes of pleasure. And one of the hottest ways to try something new is to actually cool your sensations down with cooling lubes!
What are cooling lubes?
Cooling lubes are specially formulated personal lubricants that feature specific ingredients that create a chilly sensation on the skin (more on that below). These unique lubes will send your skin shivering, which can be an awesome sensation when the action has gotten super hot and heavy. Cooling lubes are best used on penises and the skin around the genitals. They are sometimes irritating when used by women internally. They can feel great, but if irritation occurs, you should discontinue use.
Why should I use a cooling lube?
Trying different types of lube is all about experiencing different types of sensation. Different thicknesses, different materials... lube can provide many different feelings on and in your body. Cooling lubes are great as a foreplay experience that makes your skin feel fantastic. The cooling sensation can mimic the feeling of an ice cube being drawn along the body. Cooling lube can give you the best kind of goosebumps!
Can cooling lubes be used for masturbation?
Yes, they sure can. Most of us have been masturbating since we were young, and it is definitely easy to fall into a masturbation box. That box can feel amazing, but when you try new things, you just might discover an amazing new experience. Introducing cooling lubes into your solo sex sessions will definitely add a spark of sensation that will set your cock ablaze with pleasure!
What are cooling lubes made from?
Cooling lubes are available in both silicone and water-based, as well as some creams. Many people wonder what wild chemicals are used in cooling lubes to produce the sensation. Rest assured they aren’t wild chemicals at all! The ingredients in cooling lube that gives it that signature sensation is usually mint or menthol.
How do I use cooling lubes?
Cooling lube is one of those products that should be discussed among partners before anyone tries to use them. It could be quite a shock to suddenly have your skin feeling all cold! It is also a good idea to spot test the lube, before sexytime fun starts. It could be rather unfortunate to have to stop hot sex because one or both of you had a reaction to the cooling lube.
If everything works out and you’re good to get excited about cooling lube, here’s a neat trick that will drive your partner crazy. First, it really helps if you get your partner all worked up. Use the lube all over his penis or her vulva. Tease them, bringing them closer and closer to orgasm. But don’t let it happen, don't let that sensation take over. Instead, abruptly take your hand away, get your face nice and close and blow on their skin. The gust of air will activate the mint or menthol and make their skin tingle with cool sensation.
Another amazing experience you can have with cooling lube is rubbing it on the anus. Your back end is extremely sensitive and will feel the cooling ingredients as much or possibly even more than your genitals do! Gliding your lube coated finger on your partner’s ass while performing oral sex will give them such a thrill!
