What are sex creams, gels and oils?
Creams, gels and oils are lubrication products that can be used for a variety of different sex acts. They offer many different sensations than other types of lube do. The thickness of sexy creams feels seductive when rubbed into the skin. The consistency of gels produce great consistency that goes on smooth and really lasts. And slick and slippery oils are an excellent way to get close with your partner.
Why should I use sex creams, gels and oils?
Creams, gels and oils are a simple and effective way to experience new sensations in the bedroom. They also help to aid penetration and foreplay. Depending on the particular type you buy, they can be used for both internal and external pleasure.
Can they be used with condoms?
The situation you need to be aware of when using creams, gels and oils is their interaction with condoms. If safer sex is a concern, it is highly recommended you do not use creams, gels and oils with condoms. In particular, oils will break down latex condoms and creams and gels may contain oil as well. This will compromise your condom. It is best to stick with water-based or silicone lube for penetration.
Can they enhance masturbation?
One of the truly awesome uses of creams, gels and oils is the many different sensations they can provide you during masturbation - particularly for men. The different textures will provide you the opportunity to enjoy different feelings depending on your mood. When you want to make your pleasure last and last, pick a gel lube. Or if you want to really get wet and slippery, slather yourself with oil and go wild! And when you want a slow and sensual solo session, break out a cream for extended pleasure.
How can I use sex creams, gels and oils?
We’ve already talked about how awesome creams, gels and oils are for masturbation. Well, don’t forget that the whole body can definitely enjoy touch all over. Creams, gels and oils all can be used as highly effective - and highly sexy - massage liquids. Think again about the different textures they come in. Creams are great for times when you want to give a deep muscle massage - you can really work those muscles by working in the lube. Gels are great for long, sensual massages - the kind that lasts so long your partner will be begging to put their hands on you. And oils are a classic of massage - naturally allowing your hands to glide across the skin in every direction.
If you are in a sexy situation that you feel is good to pursue without safer sex options, be sure to read the list of ingredients on the labels of your creams, gels and oils before diving right in. It is also recommended that you do a small spot test before trying to use them vaginally or anally. You don’t want to get all of your bits all lubed up and working and then discover that your body doesn’t agree with the cream, gel or oil.
