How to Choose the Right Lube

sliquid naturals organic lube

Why use lube?

It’s a common (and incorrect) assumption that lube is strictly for those with dryness problems. While lube does add a whole new level of comfort to those who may be struggling with their own natural lubrication, it also adds excitement, texture, and flavour to any kind of sex. It can help with a too-big man, condom dryness, breakage, and just generally cutting down the time between arousal and actual lubrication (if it ever comes at all!)

But one lube does not fit all, both for bodies and for certain sexual acts, so when it comes to choosing the right lube, it’s not so cut and dry. Factors like materials, safety, flavours, allergies, sensations, and much more all come into play whether you’re choosing lube for the first time or the twentieth. In partnership with Lubezilla, I’ve created a big ‘ol guide for the safest and most sensual lubricant that fits your particular sexual scenario. Let’s start with the basics first…

Review: MEO Cock Candy

meo cock candy lube review my tickle trunk

I like a good blowjob, and it’s a concept that needs little improvement. But much like eating your favourite food for years on end, you might want to change up the flavour of the week. Perhaps you love the taste of dick, but perhaps you also love piña coladas.

The aptly named MEO Cock Candy set comes in a nifty clear flight bag for easy storage and transport, with 5 colourful bottles of trial-sized, flavoured lubricant (in vanilla, piña colada, strawberry kiwi, strawberry, and cherry). I’ve mentioned previously that I’m not huge into flavoured lubes, but I’m game for anything that’ll make my boyfriend’s penis into an ice cream sundae.

Review: Sliquid Silk

sliquid silk review my tickle trunk

By now I’ve done enough Sliquid reviews that you probably get the message – OMFG I LOVE SLIQUID. I was truly lucky to find it early on and not have to endure too many bad lube experiences (with the exception of one later on), and I continue to sing its praises. But I thought I’d talk about WHY I like Sliquid Silk, especially in comparison to other Sliquid variations.

First off, I hold this bottle very close to my heart. Literally. When I spotted the vibrant purple bottle and looked at the price tag, I immediately clutched it to my chest in a primal “back off bitches” stance. See, Come As You Are had THE most bonkers sale last month, so bonkers in fact that I drove all the way back to Toronto for it even though I was visiting my boyfriend in another city. I had no intention on really buying anything, because so many sales are advertised in such a generous way, only to be a disappointing 10% off in reality. But oh was I wrong. Between 30% off ALL sex toys & props, and their clearance bins with savings of up to 90% off, I was happy I made the trip. Come As You Are retails Sliquid in the range of $30, and, guys…

Toxic Lube Ingredients (And On A Related Note, A Quick Review Of Forta Lube)

Toxic lube ingredients forta lubricant u-lube review my tickle trunk

It had happened a few times; my boyfriend and I would be going at it, and it was hot. Then after a couple minutes it was… hot. My vagina; it was washed over with a stinging, burning discomfort that I still can’t accurately describe. Like if you ran a hair dryer over an open flesh wound, or your hands were raw from climbing the monkey bars… in my vagina. It concerned me and made me worry that I might lose all enjoyment in sex, but it didn’t happen every time so I tried to push it out of my mind.

Review: Sliquid Naturals Lube Cube

Sliquid Naturals Lube Cube

Lube turns me on. It just does. I’ve had a long-running sexual fantasy involving a tarp and enough bottles of baby oil that I’m pretty it’d cause an accident, so it goes without saying that I like my sex wet. I want to hear it, feel it, taste it – and I’m glad to say that this pack from my favourite lube brand hits all five senses.

It’s no secret I love Sliquid, so let me give you the TL;DR of this review now: it’s awesome. What’s also awesome is a company who makes dozens of lube types AND has the consideration to say, “don’t waste your money on a whole bottle of something you don’t know” and instead packs an entire line of premium lube into a teeny little box.

Review: Sliquid Organics Silk Lubricant

Sliquid Organics Silk Sliquid Organics SilkWater & silicone based hybrid lubricant review

I don’t remember a time before my Sliquids. I don’t really want to. All I remember is lying there after sex thinking, “oh God get it off me”, and I wasn’t talking about the guy.

I received this lube as a review item years ago, and honestly, I’ve just finished the bottle. I remember the first time I used it, I had paired it with the Lovemoiselle Noemie Ceramic Dildo (which I won’t review because I had no idea how to use it back then), closed the blinds, and locked my bedroom door. I was very rudely interrupted by my now-ex-boyfriend who decided to pop in and mock me for masturbating. Needless to say, he didn’t finish the job, so I had to walk around for a few hours with this lube still on.
