With so many kinds of lubes available in the market it might get a bit confusing when you are out there to pick one. Here’s a small guide that might help you choose the best lube for your intimate moments with your partner.
Water-Based Lubes For Regular Sessions
These are the ones that can give you the closest ‘natural’ feel. It is slick as a woman’s fluids. However, since these lubes are water-based they have a tendency of getting absorbed by the skin. Thus, there can be a need to apply the product more than once throughout the session. This means more usage of the product. The water-based lubes are perfectly okay to be used over a condom, and they are great as they do not leave any marks on fabrics. Also, water-based products are easy to wash off. Different flavours are also available for water-based lubes.
Silicone-Based Lubes For The Experimental-Lovers
Unlike water-based lubes, the silicone-based ones are long-lasting, and needs a little of the product. Also, these are the winners when you want to try a move in the shower. They are also a better choice if you want to take it from the back. They are designed for people who experiment different things and can go long in the act. A thorough cleaning of the product is needed after the act as they are not absorbed off by the skin. This might leave stains on fabrics.
Warming Lubes For The Tingling Sensation
Warming lubes creates a tingly experience. Some people freak out initially as they feel a slightly burning sensation when they apply it at first. However, it is not really a burning one, but a gentle and tingly feeling, that adds extra sexiness. The ingredients often use natural stimulates like cinnamon or peppermint. They feel nice as a massage oil, but these lubes tend to be oil-based, which means they degrade a latex condom. These are not meant for playing from the back, as they might cause pain.

You could make your own lube at home! A quick googling will tell you more about it. You could make it along with your partner for sharing more and have an extended intimate time. However, make sure the ingredients are fresh and do not use any leftover, if possible. Consider using olive oil, but again they will not be good for condoms.
When you pick up a lube, read the ingredients list and see if you or your partner is allergic to any of them. There are a number of options, so you will not find it difficult to find one.
