WHEN things get a little hot and heavy, either on a date night with yourself or on a romantic couples getaway, dryness can really dampen the mood.
The best flavoured lube can change all of that by making things a little wetter, bringing a whole new dimension to a steamy session.
Lubes can help heighten your sexual experiences in many different ways: they can make sex toy sessions — both vaginal and anal — more exciting, and comfortable, for all sexes.
They can also help with any vaginal dryness during penetrative sex or masturbation sessions, and with anal tightness, if you’re trying your hands at anal beads, dildos, pegging or anal sex.
Flavoured lube takes it one step further, too, making oral sex taste and feel even better.
If you’re new to lube, it’s okay to feel pretty overwhelmed by the options on offer. There’s not much to watch out for, except that you should always opt for a water-based lube, and perhaps a dedicated anal lube for comfort as these often have extra cushiony ‘relaxation’ qualities.
If you’re using lube with a sex toy, make sure your sex toy is clean and fresh to prevent any nasty bacteria build-ups, both before and after playtime.
We’ve done the hard work for you and trawled through the best and most reputable sexual wellness sites to bring you our picks of the best flavoured lubes on the market right now.
The most important thing is to lie back, relax and enjoy the ride. Warning, you might get wet…
