It’s Back to School Time! Even if you don’t have children heading off to school, there’s something about September 1st that leaves you longing for some extra knowledge about something, anything!
There’s nothing like the first day of school when you start the year eager to learn, with your clean notebook and freshly sharpened pencil. By December, you’re over it. Right now though, inspired by all the back to school specials in stores, we wanted to give you a quick overview on sex education, starting with Lube 101.
Fantasy Gifts believes that lubricant is an essential ingredient for any sexual encounter. Whether you are alone, or with a partner, a satisfying, healthy sexual experience must include lubricant. But which one and why?
The first factor to consider is why are you using a lubricant? Believe it or not, different lubricants can enhance or diminish a sexual experience. Are you using it alone or with a partner? If you are using it alone, are you using it with a toy or without a toy? Why does it matter? Because if you are using a silicone toy or a latex condom, you must not use a silicone based lubricant, like Pjur Eros Original Bodyglide, because it will break down the silicone material. This is not only bad for your silicone based sex toy but can be downright dangerous when you’re talking about a latex condom.
Try a water-based lubricant like System Jo H2O Personal Lubricant. This high-quality, water based lubricant reactivates when you add more moisture to it so it will never become dry and tacky.
The second factor to consider is your own body. What sensitivities does your own body have? If you are prone to yeast infections, we do not recommend using a flavored lubricant. While flavored lubricants cannot cause a yeast infection, the sorbitol which provides the flavoring can feed an already existing yeast infection. If you are looking for a different sensation without the sorbitol, try a warming or cooling water based lubricant like Wet Synergy.
If you prefer a product that is made with only natural or organic ingredients, try System JO Organic Lubricant. This lubricant is 100% natural certified USDA organic. It is made with aloe vera and acai making it silky smooth and long lasting. It is condom and silicone toy compatible. Best of all, it is glycerin and paraben free.
The third factor to consider is what experience are you hoping to enhance? If you anticipate oral sex (and do not have a yeast infection as discussed above) then we love the flavors of System JO H2O Flavored Lubricants. Available in vanilla, mint, tangerine, apple, strawberry, cherry, raspberry, and pomegranate, there’s a flavor for every taste! If you want to warm it up or cool it down, we like the Wet Synergy mentioned above.
If you are going for anal play, you must have an anal based lubricant. The viscosity is thicker, making it perfect to protect the anus which does not produce its own moisture. Our favorite is System JO Anal H2O Personal Lubricant. Whatever your desired outcome, a lubricant will enhance it!
