Choosing the right Lubricant for you

Lubricant Guide

Water-based: Water is the main ingredient which makes it soothing and great for sensitive skin, plus it's easy to clean off your body and sheets. Water-based lubes are compatible with all sex toys, but they're not great for the shower/bath (since they wash right off) and they're not very long-lasting.

Examples: Pink Water, Pink Natural, Gun Oil Loaded, Gun Oil H2O, Good Clean Love

Silicone-based: Silicone lubes have a unique silky feel and they're usually hypoallergenic. Since the silicone molecules are too large to absorb into skin, the lube is super slippery and lasts much longer so you don't need to re-apply as often — and it works for water play. But silicone lube will actually ruin silicone sex toys, because it breaks down the surface and makes the toys gummy and gross.

Examples: Pink Unity, Hot Pink, Gun Oil Force Recon, Uber lube

Oil-based: Oil-based lubes feel great and you can find them in your kitchen (coconut and olive oil work great). However, they're not safe to use with condoms because they make the latex porous so it's prone to ripping, which increases the risk of pregnancy or STIs. While it's good for masturbation and massage, it's also oil, so it'll be hard to clean, and it can stain sheets or clothing.

Examples: Coconut oil, Olive oil, Jojoba oil
