Choosing Your Lubricant

Choosing the right lubricant is important for a comfortable and enjoyable sexual experience. There are various types of lubricants available, and the best one for you depends on your preferences, any sensitivities or allergies you may have, and the type of sexual activity you're engaging in. 


To ensure you make the best choice, learn more about the factors to consider when selecting a lubricant.




The base of a lubricant refers to the primary ingredient that gives its texture, viscosity, and compatibility with different activities. There are three main types of lubricant bases: water-based, silicone-based, and oil-based.


Water-based lubricants are versatile and compatible with most sex toys. They are easy to clean and won't stain. However, they tend to dry out during *activities* more quickly than other types.





Silicone-based lubricants last longer than water-based ones and are suitable for water-based activities. However, they may not be compatible with all sex toys and can be harder to wash off.


Oil-based lubricants, like the Agent NATEUR Holi (Sex), are the most long-lasting. Note: they are not recommended for use with latex condoms as they can weaken them. They are also not suitable for use with some sex toys.


Each will come in various consistencies, including thin, gel-like, or thick. Choose one that matches your preferences and the type of activity you have in mind.




Check for allergies or sensitivities to specific ingredients. Water-based lubes are generally hypoallergenic, making them a safer choice for most people. Lubricants that are pH balanced–like the Dame Arousal Serum–are designed to match the natural pH of the vagina, which can be beneficial for individuals who are prone to irritation.


It's a good idea to start with a small amount of lube and see how your body reacts. If you suspect you may be allergic to a particular lubricant, stop use immediately and wash it off thoroughly. 




It’s crucial to consider the type of sexual activity you'll be engaging in. Different lubes are better suited for different activities, such as vaginal or anal intercourse, or use with sex toys.


If you want to add some spice to your oral moments, there are flavored and scented lubricants available. When choosing flavored lube, opt for products with natural and body-safe ingredients to minimize the risk of irritation. Additionally, consider personal preferences and select a flavor that both you and your partner find enjoyable to enhance the overall experience.
