Using lube is an effective, inexpensive and fast way to improve both comfort and pleasure during sex for both partners.
Reasons to use lube:
Adapting the regular use of lube is a winning strategy for better sex, even if dryness is not a noticeable issue for you and your partner.
Lube has been found to improve a women's sexual pleasure regardless of age or vaginal symptoms.
Using lubricant is a simple, quick way to improve sex for you and your partner.
According to the sex therapists, there is no one lube solution for everyone. The list below will help you choose a personal lubricant that suits your needs. However, you may want to experiment with a few different products to help find what meets your needs best.
Hybrid lubes are available on the market that are made of a combination of two or more of the base ingredients above, to get the best of both worlds.
There are also many organic and natural lubes available. One brand we recommend is the SUTIL brand of lubes. SUTIL believes that lube should be as simple and natural as possible, not contain any harsh chemicals, parabens and glycerin.
They always choose organic and ethical ingredients and have considered the impact of their packaging with the use of bio-degradable tubes.
SUTIL is recommended by Doctors, Pelvic Floor practitioners, sex therapists and educators. SUTIL is sold around the world in select Sex-Positive Boutiques. SUTIL is a Canadian Family run business located on Vancouver Island on the west coast of British Columbia.
Astroglide also has a range of natural and certified organic lubes.
Here’s a quick list of ingredients to avoid in lubricants:
When using lube for the first time, start with a small amount and apply more if necessary.
For some women, menopause can change their sexual experiences. Some reasons include vaginal atrophy, which sometimes leads to pain, dryness, and discomfort.
Fortunately, there are a number of resources available to aid with menopause-related changes in women's health.
Lubricant is defiantly your friend during this period of life, as natural lubrication tends to be produced less.
A decrease in estrogen and vaginal tissue can change during midlife. Vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) is the official term that represents the thinning and shrinking of vaginal tissue.
Post menopausal women experiencing VVA may have the following symptoms: vaginal dryness, pain with sex, burning, general discomfort, itching, pain when urinating, and spotting during intercourse.
Treatments include topical estrogen, vaginal moisturizers and lubricants, avoiding douching, and including supplements like probiotics or herbs (for more details on this, check out Natural remedies for Overcoming VVA).
When starting out with lubricants it takes a bit of trial and error to find the one that best suits you and your partner.
There are bound to be a few mistakes along the way. Remember to laugh and not take things too seriously.
You will eventually find what fits your personal preference and then you will take your sex life to a new level.
