When I tried lubricant for the first time, I was in need of a guide. I saw all the options in front of me, and had no idea how to choose. It was enough to make me scream internally, “Why do we need so many options?” Well, after years of working at a sexual wellness company, I can safely say I know the answer. Even if you’ve never used a lubricant or feel like you don’t have any issues with dryness, adding a lube increases pleasure and fun. Here’s your guide for choosing the right lubricant for your situation.

I’m Sensitive and Dry.

Women can experience dryness at any age. Breastfeeding, menopause, perimenopause, and medication are all potential causes. That’s why using a lubricant that is perfect for everyday use or getting intimate is essential. It’s also why our most popular lubricant is a pH-balanced, water-based lube that imitates vaginal moisture. 

We’re Exploring Water Play

When having some extra fun in the shower or bath, you want to use the correct lubricant that will keep things wet and wild. A silicone-based lubricant has a long-lasting, slick, and slippery texture that ensures it won’t soak into the skin, unlike most water-based lubricants, making it ideal for water play. Another lubricant that is great for water play and combines the pros of a water-based and silicone-based lubricant is our hybrid gel lube which is uniquely blended to be gentle and long-lasting. 

I Have Some Pain During Sex

Your comfort is key! Nearly 75% of women have experienced pain during sex at some point in their lives. If this is a concern, please talk to a healthcare provider. Our customers love our water-based lubricant with CBD. One reviewer says, “Ever since having babies, sex has been very painful and something I barely tolerated… I had a friend recommend this lube to me to try and it was life-changing. Zero pain.”

We’re Entering Through the Backdoor

More Americans are enjoying anal sex. But before diving in, a silicone-based lubricant is a must. It won’t absorb quickly into your skin, giving you the lubrication comfort you need to enjoy anal. Use as much as you want to increase the fun. 

We’re Attempting to Sweeten Oral Favors

If you want your oral favors to taste like a cupcake or cheesecake, we’ve got you covered. Use a creamy lubricant that combines optimal glide and delicious flavors. Enjoy a sweet dessert, without worrying about those pesky calories. 

What Should I Use With a Toy?

You may have heard a rumor that you should not use a silicone-based lubricant on silicone toys. That’s not something you have to worry about with Pure Romance. We’ve tested Pure Pleasure with our toys and found it did not degrade the toy. In fact, all of our toys are safe to be used with all of our lubricants. We do recommend using our creamy lubricants for c-rings or pleasure sleeves. 

I’m Looking to Give Foreplay an Edge

Ladies, we know how important foreplay is. If you want to change up your foreplay and add a little heat, try a warming lubricant. When applying this lube, it goes on cool but the air-activated formula warms up when you add breath or friction. Plus, we have different flavors like cotton candy and pineapple paradise.

I Need a Lubricant that’s Great for any Situation

We’re back to a water-based lubricant! Just Like Me can be used every day, whether you’re getting intimate or not. This FDA-cleared lubricant enhances vaginal moisture with its unique re-wetting formula. Plus, you can choose to go unflavored or add a delicious twist with a flavor like sugar glazed donut.

Now that you have a guide on your journey for sexual pleasure, find a route that will lead you to new heights… and orgasms.
