Lube, Massage Oil, Lotion, Lions and Tigers and Bears Oh My!
I keep thinking there is an incredible amount of liquid form of something that either makes you slicker, softer or even a little warmer. What do you use when? Is there a type you shouldn’t use in certain areas? Sin Free Toys, Inc. wants to help you weave through that basket of moisture challenges.
Partner or No Partner?
This is really where we should start with your moisturizing challenge. If you are buy yourself, you might be more interested in Lubricants than KY’s Yours and Mine. However, regardless if you are with a partner or not, all different types of personal lubricants can still apply.
This is a huge category for us. I have to admit, I even said to myself, should I really sell a Gallon Jug of lubricant? Who am I to judge? Im still waiting for the day to see that purchased. But back to advice, that’s what I’m doing here. Choosing a lubricant should come with several decisions, one of the biggest is its effect on latex (condoms).
Lubricants or “lubes” are used in the bedroom for an easier glide during sex. This helps make sex more comfortable and pleasurable. Lubes come in several different types; Oil-based, Water-based, Natural, Flavored, De-sensitizing, and Warming.
There are however, three main categories for lubes. Oil-based, Water-Based, and Silicone-Based.
Oil-based lubricants are more like a jelly or Vaseline. Oil-based lubricants should not be used with condoms as they will break down latex. I generally give the advice that oil-based lubricants are not used because they can also trap dirt, germs and other foreign bodies which can then be coated all over and in your “fun zones”. Oil-Based lubricants however, do have a benefit. For Males, w/o a partner, oil-based lubricants are a great way to keep that “Glide” while masturbating and without having to re-apply. Wash up with soap and water afterwards to remove the coating and keep yourself clean!
Water-based lubricants are safe to use with condoms; including diaphragms and other latex products. You will find less allergic reactions from water-based lubricants and they are typically a “Squeeze and Go” product. Your lover might not even notice that he/she is moisture challenged with a little squirt of water=based lubricant. There is a small downside to water-based lubricants. They don’t keep you moist for a long period of time. They can dry out quickly and require you to use more. So if you are in a sexual marathon, maybe the Gallon is for you! It is also worth mentioning that some of these lubricants can contain glycerin which has been known to cause yeast infections in women. So be sure to clean up, as good practice anyways.
These are also safe to use with condoms and latex products, but the benefit is that they will outlast a water-based lube. The time to use a silicone lubricant is in the tub/pool. They will last in the pool or tub. However, we suggest you use these types of lubricants when you are going all-natural. You should not use silicone-based lubricants with Sex Toys. In case its not apparent, because they are so great to use in the water they are difficult to wash off. Soap is always your best friend.
Massage oil is used to help glide your hands across your partners body. There are a slew of massage oils. There are even ones that warm and some that are edible. Each oil can be made from a variety of oil types. You will want to check what your massage oil is made from to make sure you do not have any allergies. Massage oils can be made from coconut oil, grape seed oil, olive oil, almond oil, macadamia oil, sesame oil, pecan oil, and mustard oil. There are vegan massage oils as well.
Massage oils are made with different oil types to serve different purposes whether scent, application or for a specific use. These are great to use to massage your partner with and help him/her relax before you get down!
What is a Massage Candle?
A Massage Candle is a small candle that you can light and once the oil has melted, you can blow out the candle and use the oil for massage! Be careful when using these on your partner. If the candle has been lit for a long time, it can be one HOT massage; literally and you may not have a partner for much longer. These are more aromatic oils and entice the senses with a variety of scents.
Lotions can serve the same purpose as Massage Oils, but they do not generally last as long on the skin and will require you to re-apply. However, offering to lotion up your partner after he/she has had a shower, is a great way to initiate some fun time. Lotions come in all different scents and can help you show your partner that tender loving side as you softener their skin and entice them with fresh scents.
Lotions and oils can both be used for male masturbation.
All of these come in a wide variety of flavors, colors, scents and warming or cooling effects. Come check out the store to try some out!
