Guide to Silicone Lubricants
The world of sex products is a rapidly evolving industry that grows by the day. It used to be that sexy items were a bit of a niche choice. Not many people knew about the potential of sex toys and different accessories. They were relegated to fringe stores and the back pages of magazines.
Fortunately, times have changed and not only are sex products more accepted, they are ripe for constant innovation. New and intriguing designs and materials are revolutionizing our sexual worlds. It used to be that mass produced sex stuff was made of plastics - and these just weren’t very body safe. Fortunately, we’ve learned a lot about the materials that are as good for our bodies as their shapes are enjoyable. And from this process, silicone has emerged as a great substance to create our playthings from. And when it comes to adding some extra slippery sensation to the mix, silicone lube is leading the way.
What is silicone lube?
Silicone lubes are fantastic personal lubricants that bring out the best in your sex. Long-lasting and durable, you can apply just a small amount of silicone lube and it will serve your sex needs for a long time (as opposed to water-based lube that dries out quicker). Silicone lube is waterproof, meaning you can take it in the shower or spa and it won’t wash off too easily - don’t worry it does come off with some soap! These great products are condom-safe and ideal for vaginal, oral or anal sex.
What will last longer?
You or the lube? That’s a really hard question to answer, but silicone lube will probably have you and your partner beat. Regardless of the type of sex you’re having, silicone lube can last through almost any sex act you put it through. The silicone formula can stand the test against tremendous friction, making it a favourite for masturbation - particularly for men. Stroke away and never worry about tackiness or chafing. This also makes silicone lube ideal for anal sex.
What is silicone lube made from?
Let’s drop some sexy science! Silicone lubricant is made from a combination of silicone and oxygen molecules. This formula is used in many different products, with personal lubricant being one of the most effective. It is also hypoallergenic, making it a great option for people who may encounter allergic reactions with other sex product materials. There is one warning with silicone lube - you cannot use it with silicone sex toys. Using silicone lube will cause the silicone toys to break down over time.
How is silicone lube used?
Silicone lube is a bit of a wonder material when it comes to sex. It has so many different amazing uses that it just might astound you how versatile it is. You can add silicone lube to almost any sexy scene for maximum sensation.
One of the uses mentioned above is enjoying silicone lube during masturbation. You’re not just going to enjoy it, it just might revolutionize your self-love routines. Whether you’re a man or a woman, you can definitely benefit from using silicone lube. The first time you try it out, squirt just a little bit on your finger tip. From there, glide your digit all around your vulva or penis. Not only will this feel fantastic, it is also a very sexy way to spread the lube while driving you wild! Once you’ve totally coated yourself (you might need to add some more), take over as usual and feel how long the silicone lube can last!
Another great use for silicone lube is as a way to introduce anal pleasure to your partner. Because it lasts so long, you could use a thin coating of silicone lube as a massage rub. Have your partner (again, man or woman) lie on their belly and give their bum, lower back, upper legs and thighs the massage of a lifetime. As you help them relax and enjoy the sensations, slowly work your hands and fingers a little bit deeper into their ass crack. Every few massage strokes you can open them up a bit more, letting their anus feel the air and eventually spreading some lube there. Keep up the massage as you slowly begin touching their ass and helping that gentle area relax as well. Not only will the touch feel fantastic, but you will also be adding lots of silicone lube there - a key part of ensuring great anal pleasure!
