The Truth About Personal Lubricants and Glide!

When trying to enjoy sex toys and intercourse, often times, sex doesn’t always feel as amazing as we think it should, and that’s where lubricants come in handy. Just by dabbing a small amount, maybe the size of a quarter,  either using solo, or by either partner will make things glide much smoother when the woman isn’t creating enough of her own natural juices. There are so many different kinds of lubricants to choose from.  Below is a guide showing you main differences between ones that are oil, water, and silicone based

Advice: I’d stick with a water-based lubricant like Romantic Deport Spring Water Glide which can be used solo with or without sex toys, with or without all condoms and is also great for sex toys and anal sex. . It’s the cheapest to buy, easiest to find (you can get it at most pharmacies and grocery stores), it can be used with all types of condoms, and it washes off easily from skin and fabric.
