Ever considered using lube during sex? Well, it’s def worth a shot as it can help improve your sex life.

But before you jump right in to using lube, consider using a water-based lubricant since those with additives like glycerin or silicone can cause irritation. Using sex toys? Opt for a thicker variety since the toy can’t provide any additional lubrication itself.

Here’s what lubing up can do for you and your partner:

Feelin’ Good
Vaginal dryness can cause serious discomfort for some women during sex and make the experience a lot less enjoyable. If you aren’t able to get wet naturally during sex or foreplay, apply a bit of lube to your vagina or your partner’s penis to keep sex comfortable and fun!

Keep You Focused
If you and your partner focus too much on why you aren’t getting wet, sex stops being fun. Adding a bit of lubricant during sex will keep you both in the mood and prevent you from worrying about something that is often out of your control.

Condom Assistant
A dry condom entering a dry vagina is the perfect recipe for a broken condom — which no one wants. Applying lube to yourself and to the condom will allow it to glide in and out of your vagina with ease and allow the condom to protect you more efficiently.

Through the Back Door
If you want to try anal for the first time, it’s essential that you’re well lubricated. Don’t skimp on the lube when it comes to this kind of sex. Even if you’ve tried anal in the past, it’s always a good idea to make sure you have lube on hand.
