Lube can be a really great addition to sex stuff.
BUT it's important to use the right stuff, which might take some trial and error.
There are three main kinds of lube: Water-based, oil-based, and silicone-based.
So let's get to some lubes! We asked the experts for their best picks for every type of sex. Here are their suggestions:
FYI: We talked to Dr. Jennifer Berman, urologist and female sexual health expert; Claire Cavanah, co-founder of woman-friendly sex shop chain Babeland; and Dr. Mary-Jane Minkin, clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Yale School of Medicine.
It's great for vaginal sex because it's non-irritating and doesn't get sticky — which also makes clean up a breeze."We love it because it works on all toys, and it's free of glycerin, a sugar compound," Cavanah says. But since it's water-soluble, you probably don't want to use it in the bath or shower because it'll dissolve quickly.
Buy it at Babeland in a variety of sizes from $.50 to $22.
