Similar to the feel of natural vaginal fluids, you will find water-based lubes in a variety of consistencies from a watery liquid to a thick jelly. The liquids are great for all around play the gels seem to have more lasting power for extended encounters or anal sex. Water-based lubricants are specially formulated to be taste-free, non-staining, non-irritating, and they will easily wash out of the body.
Water-based Lubricants are specifically designed for use on moist membranes, where it should stay slippery. When applied to the rest of the body, it will dry, leaving a sticky residue, which makes it completely undesirable as a massage product. All of Love Zones Flavored lubricants are water-based.
Silicone is a super-slippery lube, which lasts longer than water-based lubes. This makes it ideal for extended play, anal play or in the water / shower sex. Silicone feels like an oil but it is safe for internal use. It has a couple of unique features; You can use it for an all over body massage and then go into lovemaking safely. Silicone never feels sticky and it is safe with latex toys and condoms (avoid using silicone lubes with silicone toys). It is your best choice if you are using a lubricant around water (like in a shower, hot tub, or bath) because it will not wash away as quickly as water-based lubricants. It feels warm when it goes on. Because it last so long it is an excellent choice for anal play. Unlike oil based lubes it is safe vaginally and will not cause any infection.
In recent years many specialty lubricants have entered the market. These include:
Warming lotions & lubricants – these warm with friction, getting even warmer when you blow on them. They are different from the old warming lotions that were not designed for internal use.
Stimulating lubricants – These lubricants like ID Pleasure will create a light tingling sensation and heightened sensitivity along with being a lubricant. These are not as strong as an actual arousal balm.
Natural lubricants - these include lubricants that use Grapefruit extract as the preservative, lubes with hemp extract (hemp is a natural anti bacterial and is said to cut down on yeast infections) and new vegan friendly lubes.
Oils have been used as lubricants for hundreds of years, but there are some facts to bear in mind. Oils are extremely hard to wash out of the body. Oils and petroleum products, like Vaseline, coat the walls of the vagina for days, welcoming all kinds of bacteria and creating an environment that promotes yeast infections. All oils will linger in the vagina longer than necessary, as there is no way for them to be flushed out of the body. And oils of any kind will destroy latex condoms, dental dams, gloves or diaphragms, so oils are completely incompatible with practicing safe sex.
The oil based lubes we sell are geared toward male solo sex activities or anal sex where the body is more capable of flushing the oils out of its system.
Warning never use oil based products with any toys or latex products the oil will melt or eat away at the latex.
