Lube or ‘Lubricant’ is a liquid that comes in 3 different types; water-based, oil-based and silicone-based.
Sex education seems to miss out the part about how lube isn’t just for old dry grannies and I know for sure if I was told it was normal my first time would’ve been more enjoyable!
Lube isn’t for people who ‘Can’t get wet’ or ‘not turned on’ by their partner, wetter is better and lube makes sex even better. It is also essential when it comes to anal sex, as that hole does not self lubricate and can be pretty dangerous if you go in without!
It is important to understand the different types of lube as some dissolve condoms, so if you struggle to work out the differences between lubes or want to start using them carry on reading.
