Info - and ingredients – you need to know to live your best (sex) life…
Today we’re sliding into the world of lady lube, the magical goddess designed to help you go the distance during sex with your partner or solo with your favourite toy. We’re going to discuss the misconceptions of lubricants and show you that, just like us women, they are all made differently…
The reality is that lady lube is for everyone. Vaginal dryness isn’t fun and can happen to anyone at anytime. Read on to learn the benefits and what to look for to buy the best women’s lubricant that’s right for you.
Who is Lady Lube For?
ICYMI: Lady lube is for everyone! It’s not just for when you get older… Whether you’re in your twenties or your sixties, adding a lube will only improve your sexy-time experiences - and who would say no to that?!
Lube is the game-changer for women suffering from vaginal dryness. If this has happened to you, you’re not alone. Dryness can be brought on by stress, certain medications, or a change in hormone levels, such as during pregnancy, after child birth, or during menopause.
Been given the 6-week postpartum nod from your Dr. that you can jump back on the horse again? For super sensitive, postpartum sexy-time reach for your lady lube to help you comfortably find your groove (when you’re ready) for sex after delivery.
Generally (or extremely) sensitive down south? Consider lubricant if you experience pain and irritation in the vagina as a side effect of sex.
How about this one…? You’re ready to go - but you’re not. Or, YESSSS, the sex is lasting longer than expected but, it’s starting to get dry down south. No need to feel discomfort ladies, this is totally normal and lady lube is here to help!
And finally, far too often, lubricant sits lonely in our bedside tables and is thought of as a last resort, only to be sought out if there’s sexual pain or only when absolutely necessary. Don’t forget, lady lube enhances all the good feels and reaching for it means you're empowered enough to have the best time in bed possible.
For the party of two, the added wetness can reduce any friction and actually helps increase arousal (for both of you). Flying solo? Add a big dollop or a little tease of lubricant to accompany your toy and get ready for new sensations! With vibrators in particular, the lube can amplify the intensity of the vibration.
The Many Benefits of Using Lady Lube.

• Allows you to enjoy sex in longer sessions

Finding the lady lube that is right for you.
Okay, so hopefully by this point we’ve convinced you that you need lady lube in your life! When shopping for the lubricant that’s right for you, there are a few important things you need to consider.
To start, there are three main kinds of lubricants: water-based, silicone-based, and oil-based and one may be better suited for you than others.
Some oil-based lubricants can be made with mineral oil or petroleum jelly, which can irritate the vulva, especially if you’re sensitive down there. Oil-based lubricants have also been known to destroy latex condoms, so if you’re having sex with someone who’s wearing a latex condom, then oil-based lube may not be the best choice.
Water-based lubes often contain glycerin, which can lead to an overgrowth of yeast, so if you’re prone to yeast infections, you may want to opt for a non-water-based lubricant.
If you plan on using the lube with sex toys made of silicone, then avoiding a silicone-based lubricant is key as this can make things greasy and less safe overall.
Finally, some lubricants may also affect sperm function, so if you’re having sex in order to get pregnant, make sure the lube you choose to use does not contain a spermicide of any kind.
If you take one thing away from this…
Generally speaking, when it comes to shopping for lady lube, no matter the type, look for one that is pH balanced, long-lasting, moisturizing, and contains gentle ingredients that won’t put your vagina or vulva at risk of irritation. Why pH balanced? So you don't disrupt the natural pH balance of your vagina because, an out of whack pH balance is an express highway to infection. If you want to ensure the best experience, you need the best ingredients.
