Jul 15,2016 | Sex Tips & Techniques


If you think you don’t need a lube, think again. We’ve got the skinny on lubricants for all types of play.

Lubricants are for everyone. Whether you’re drier than the desert, wetter than Niagara Falls, or somewhere in between, you should use a lubricant. Seriously. If you’ve ever said you “don’t need a lubricant,” then you don’t know what you’re missing! (But here's a hint: fun. Lots of sensual, slippery, uninhibited fun.)

A 2010 study from Indiana University’s Center for Sexual Health Promotion found that over 70% of women use a lubricant to make sex more pleasurable and satisfying. Ready to become one of the 70%? Then read on to learn more about all the different types of lubricants you can try!

Oh, and FYI: All of Pure Romance’s lubricants are pH-balanced. That’s important, because it’s about as easy to upset the delicate pH balance of the genital region as it is to down a pint of ice cream. And when you do? It’s not fun. Well, the ice cream thing is fun; the unbalanced pH is not. And like we said, we want you to have fun.

Water-Based Lubricant

Water-based lubricants are what most people think of when they hear “personal lubricant.” They’re gentle enough for even the most sensitive woman to use every day, and they can have delicious flavors or keep it simple with no added colors or flavorings.

But here’s the coolest thing about water-based lubricants: they have a unique “re-wetting” quality that can help supplement a woman’s natural moisture even hours after application! So if you want to try a lubricant but prefer not to stop your sexual adventures to apply (and nobody really wants to do that), a water-based lubricant might be for you.

Pure Romance sells three water-based lubricants: Just Like Me, Pure Naked Water-Based Lubricant, and Seductive Spotlight Water-Based Personal Lubricant. Just Like Me is designed to perfectly mimic a woman’s natural moisture, while Pure Naked is made with all-natural ingredients. Either one will make sex wetter and better! (You’re quite welcome!)

Silicone-Based Lubricant

Silicone-based lubricants offer a super-slick sensation that feels totally different from water-based lubricants. They’re also water-resistant—so if you’re into shower fun or pool play, silicone lubricants might be for you! And since silicone won’t absorb into the tissues like water-based lubricants, they’re ultra-long-lasting, making them ideal when you want to go at it all day (or at least try to)!

In addition, silicone should be your go-to lubricant for anal play. That’s because the back door is not self-lubricating, so it needs something with staying power that won’t absorb into the tissues. Silicone to the rescue!

Pure Romance offers two silicone-based lubricants: Pure Pleasure and Simply Silk. Pure Pleasure offers a classic silicone formula, while Simply Silk is specially designed for compatibility with all bedroom toys, even those made of silicone!

Creamy Lubricant

A lubricant that feels like a lotion? Yes, please! The playful possibilities are endless! A creamy lubricant can be used for massage, foreplay, and more—and a kissable flavor just adds to the excitement! Creamy lubricants are ideal for toys worn on a penis, such as a pleasure sleeve or c-ring. Pure Romance’s Whipped offers a smooth, creamy texture and flavors to satisfy any sweet tooth!

Warming Lubricant

Rub, blow, and lick—those three words only hint at some of the fun you can have with a warming lubricant! This playful, flavored lubricant starts out cool to the touch, then warms when rubbed into the skin—and when blown on, things really start to get hot! Perfect for foreplay and flavored for kissable fun, Sensations is Pure Romance’s warming lubricant. If you haven’t tried it before, a warming lubricant will get you hot and bothered in the best possible ways!

There’s no doubt about it—using a lubricant during all kinds of play will make you into a smooth operator! Whether you’re looking to spice up foreplay, try something new in the sack, or simply help make your regular awesome sex even better (nothing wrong with that!), there’s a lubricant (or two, or three) for you.
