What to Look For in a Lubricant

What makes for a good masturbation session? Well of course ideally, it is one that ends in orgasm. However, when choosing the best lube for you, there is a lot to take into account.

Of course the sensation plays a large role, but we have yet to encounter a lube that doesn’t enhance the experience. The effort required to clean up afterwards is often overlooked. With some lubes, you may need to shower afterwards to properly get rid of the feeling you used it.

It’s also good to consider things like ease of application. Different lubes will perform better based on the situation: in bed, the shower, with a pocket pussy or other toys.

Also important, is the amount required for that ultimate experience, as this will vary based on the type of lube you’re using. Personally, we prefer water based lubricants for a (big surprise) wetter experience.
