Not all lubricants are created equal.  As I always say, a cheaply made lube is like drinking bottom shelf liquor; it'll get the job done, but you may not like it in the process!  Below is a quick tutorial....If you'd like to know more about things like the viscosity of different brands, the benefits and drawbacks of particular ingredients, or hear our staff's top picks, then be sure to stay tuned to our blog for all of the deets.  You can sign up for our emails and be sure not to miss a thing.


Water based: Easy to clean up, compatible with all toys and condoms

     Hypoallergenic/Sensitive: Water based lube that doesn't contain the         most common irritants; parabens and glycerin

Silicone:  Made of silicone and sometimes other things like Vitamin E, great for use in water, skin to skin and condoms, not for toys, stays slick

Hybrid: A blend of water based and silicone, doesn't dry up as quickly

Anal: Could be water based or silicone, most often has an ingredient that either warms or cools the area, and or is very thick like a jelle

Flavored: Generally a water based or hybrid, sweetened with glycerin, stevia or aspartame, some taste fantastic, not always a good choice for toys or intercourse, always 2 thumbs up for oral

Temperature & Stimulating:  These could be any variety of bases, the key is the extra ingredients...warming and cooling will have natural products that promote the feeling of either temp.  Stimulating lubes make the area slightly warm and tingly.
