How to pick your lube

Ever unsure as to which lube to use with what toy? Here are a few tips that will help you get the most out of your lubes and the toys you use them with!

Water-based lubricants can be used for anything! They're great for sex, ideal for using with sex toys, really enjoyable during masturbation and the thicker ones are perfect for anal sex.

Silicone lubricants are great if you want a super-slippery lube that will last and last! Ideal for using in the bath or shower, silicone lubricant is thinner but slicker; making it water resistant.

However: silicone lubricants ought not to be used with silicone or realistic-feel sex toys as the ingredients and materials can react, but they're great for everything else. (The combination of materials in your favourite sex toy and the ingredients used in your latest lubricant can cause a funny peeling or rotting effect that will make your sex toy completely unusable!)

Here is an easy guide to figure out which lubes are safe and which to avoid with your different toys.
