Lube for Every Type of Sexual Situation

Posted by Dr. Sunny Rodgers on Jun 20th 2022

Have you ever thought about how many ways there are to have sex?

In all probability, there are more ways to have sex than any one person can imagine. This is reminiscent of Rule 34, which is described by Wikipedia as being the explanation of erotic films existing for every conceivable topic. 

And while all those thoughts are going through your head, keep in mind, there are certain types of lubes that work better for different types of sex. So, let’s get started!


Why Use Lube?

Lube makes sex feel better. We’re not just saying that. It’s been proven in studies.

Using lubrication during sex is important for several reasons. To begin with, when having vaginal or anal intercourse, these particular areas can sometimes be very dry, especially considering the rectum is not self-lubricating.

Lubrication can moisten intimate areas, which can allow for proper stretching of the skin and tissue when inserting toys or a penis. Using lube also allows for less uncomfortable rubbing and friction as the toy or penis shaft is inserted deeper.

But it’s also good to know which lubricants work best in particular sexual situations.


Lube for Almost Every Type of Sexual Situation


Lube for Straight Up Sex: Water-based Lubricants

Water-based lubricants are known as the most versatile lube. These types of lubricants can be used in practically any activity you can think up (see Rule 34 above).

Lube for Anal Sex: Anal Lubricants

While anal play continues to gain popularity, many people do not realize that the rectum is not self-lubricating. This means a quality anal lubricant is essential!

Lube for Extended Sex Play: Silicone Lubricant

Silicone lube is known for its long-lasting slippery glide. This attribute means reapplication is needed less, allowing for more uninterrupted sex play.

Lube for Sex Toys: Water-based Lubricant

This is where water-based lubes truly shine! They are the most compatible formulations for use with pleasure products—even silicone material sex toys. And choosing a water-based lubricant with a thicker gel can help lube stay on the toy, exactly where its placed.
