These Could Change Your Sex Life Forever

This article was originally published on April 2, 2015 and has been updated throughout.

Lube is a little like masturbation. It's a big part of most people's sex lives, and almost nobody wants to talk about it. And, like masturbation, there are many ways to enjoy it. Even if you think you don't really "need" it, consider that you might really like it. Aside from the obvious uses, the right lube may be the accessory that lets you try something new or take an old favorite to the next level.

Furthermore, if you're struggling with irritation or discomfort, lube could be the answer — or the culprit. There are several types to choose from, and since every body is different, there is no #1 lube for everyone. If the #1 face moisturizer gave you a rash, you'd probably buy something else, right? You'd check the ingredients, do a little research, and find a product that made your skin feel good. Shouldn't your sex life feel good, too?

Here, we've rounded up a slew of the best lubes out there, plus the pros and cons so you can find your personal holy grail. All of them are body-safe and contain genital-friendly ingredients. Happy hunting!

Silicone Lubes

Pros:

The word "silicone" may not sound like the kind of thing you want anywhere near your most intimate parts, but the truth is, it's a very body-safe ingredient. Silicone is hypoallergenic and cannot be absorbed into the skin. But, the best part is its unmatched slickness and staying power. Silicone lube will not dry out, period. Plus, it will stay on in water but washes off easily with soap.

Cons:

Silicone lubricant cannot be used with a silicone toy (it will cause the material to deteriorate). It can also be tough to wash out of fabric, so, you know, try to be naked when you use it.

In addition to being Vegan-friendly (a.k.a. not tested on animals), Sliquid products don't contain glycerin, which can be a skin irritant for some people.

Water-Based Lubes

Pros:

While some might like the invisible slickness of silicone, others prefer water-based lube for its thick, cushion-y feel. This is the go-to type for anal play because it provides a generous, comfortable barrier. It's also safe to use with all toys and is generally less expensive than silicone. If it starts to dry out, water-based lube can be instantly revived with a little water or saliva, and it rinses off easily (no soap needed). It's probably the most readily available lubricant out there, and you can usually find a variety at any drugstore.

Cons:

Water-based lube will dry out eventually, so you may need to reapply (meaning you'll go through a bottle faster). And, since it's water-soluble, it won't stay put for shower or bathtub sex. Keep an eye out on those drugstore brands too, since a lot of them contain glycerin, which can trigger yeast infections.

Hybrid Lubes

Pros:

Sometimes you can have it all! Hybrid lubes (also known as "silk" lubes) are mostly water-based with just a small amount of silicone. In almost all hybrids, the silicone shows up in such a teeny amount that it won't damage silicone toys, so feel free to use these with all materials. And, as we know, a little silicone goes a long way, so these lubes give you that slippery feeling with a thicker cushion.

Cons:

While these lubes are like magic, they're magic with a little compromise. You shouldn't expect them to be as slippery as silicone or thick as water-based. Other than that, there's really no downside.

Oil

Pros:

Great for massage, foreplay, and hand jobs. Oil or oil-based lubes are an easy and accessible option for "outercourse" sex. Plus, you can't argue with accessibility. In a pinch, you probably have a bottle of EVOO in the kitchen, right?

Cons:

Oil is not recommended for intercourse, primarily because it's not easy to get off you or out of you. That stuff will stick around for a while, keeping bacteria with it and leaving you open to infection. Oil also damages latex, meaning it's not safe for use with most condoms, dental dams, etc. And, remember, that EVOO hasn't been processed or tested for this purpose. Plus, if it's been hanging out in your kitchen for months, it's probably come into contact with unwashed hands, food bacteria, and plenty of other things that don't belong on your genitals.

Sensitive-Skin Lubes

Pros:

Everyone's genitals are sensitive, and that's why we like them. But, some are more tender, dry, or prone to infection or tearing. For those folks, there are a growing number of sensitive-skin lubes that won't sting or irritate and will provide superior cushioning. These lubes are also great for everyday use outside the bedroom, as gentle moisturizers for anyone dealing with dryness or irritation. If you're easing back into sex after childbirth, injury, or a medical procedure, these are the way to go.

Cons:

Most of these lubes are water-based and therefore prone to the same minor flaws. Some may turn sticky and require reapplication.

Warming Lubes

Pros:

Some people really like warming lube.

Con:

Some people really don't like warming lube.

This isn't about pros and cons as much as personal preference. While some report that warming lubes significantly increase their pleasure, others find them pointless or uncomfortable. The only way to know is to give one a whirl. Here are some tried-and-true options.

Flavored Lubes

Pros:

Flavored lubes have come a long way, so don't write them off as just a silly novelty gift. A lot of brands have honed these products to taste pretty damn good, and if you like to add a little extra sensory experience in your sex life, these are an easy and fun way to accomplish that. Lube is a great addition to oral sex of all kinds, but traditional lube can often taste, um, terrible. Get a good flavored one and the problem is solved.

Cons:

But, yeah, sometimes they're gross. With flavored lube, it's a good idea to go to an actual sex shop — a female-friendly, sex-positive sex shop, that is. Take a minute to sample the options (for obvious reasons, flavored lubes are generally water-based and edible) and find the one that suits your palate.

The Game Of Thrones Stat You Won't Be Able To Help Laughing About

In case you didn't already know, people really love Game of Thrones. They love it enough, in fact, to forego porn in favor of catching the show live on HBO.

According to data from PornHub, the site saw a 4% drop in traffic during Game of Thrones' season 6 premiere back in April. The site saw similar traffic dips over the next four weeks when new episodes aired, suggesting that people are, presumably, watching the show instead of porn.

While 4% might not seem like a huge drop, considering the site's 60 million daily visitors, it still makes a difference.

PornHub search data also show that in the days leading up to the Sunday-night airings, people got their fixes through videos that were related to GoT. PornHub reports that pre-show searches commonly included terms like "medieval," "princess," and "ancient." More specific searches included "Walk of Shame" (possibly referring to that Cersei Lannister scene) and specific characters (namely, Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke).

Turns out, when we're not watching Game of Thrones, we're busy fantasizing about it. After all, if there's anything to interrupt your routine porn-viewing for, it's deep-seated revenge plots, death, and destruction.
