How to Choose the Right Lube
Water-based lubricants are truly the most versatile. They come in jelly or liquid forms, and are condom compatible. Water-based lubricants can get sticky or dry out faster than silicone lubes.
Tip: If your water-based lubricant dries out during sex, add a little water to refresh. You'll be good as new.
Oil-based lubricants are very slippery and won't dry out. They generally come in a thick oil or petroleum form. However, oil-based lubes aren't latex condom compatible. They're recommended for anal sex with a trusted, tested partner, or for use with non-latex anal toys. We don't suggest it for use with vibrators as it can gunk up the control pad, rendering the toy useless. Oil-based lubricants erode latex, jelly and rubber toys as well (silicone and hard-shelled plastic are okay).

Silicone-based lubricants are fantastic multi-purpose lubes. They're incredibly slippery, won't dry out and are condom-compatible. You can even use them under water. Disadvantages? Silicone-based lubricants break down silicone sex toys. Some people find the ultra slippery sensation doesn't feel quite like natural lubrication (water-based lubricants emulate the feeling of the body's own moisture much better).

Natural lubricants are hypoallergenic, and glycerin- and paraben-free. These lubricants are pH balanced for the female body, meaning they won't cause yeast infections. These lubricants are condom safe and can be either silicone or water-based. A good natural lubricant: Sliquid Organics Silk
