They say communication is the best Lubrication, but sometimes we need a little help.
Many lubricants are full of chemicals that we don’t want to put on our delicate pleasure areas. Below is a list of options for Natural, Vegan and Organic lubrications.
Our skin is the largest organ, whatever we put on our skin mostly gets absorbed into our bloodstream. So choosing a lubricant that is NOT full of toxic chemicals is a great way to keep your sexual parts happy and healthy.
If you are using LATEX condoms, silicone and water based lubrications are the best.
Quick NOTE: Any oils or oil – based lubricants degrade latex rubber, degrading the rubber can cause the condom to break easily. Alternatively, you can use Polyurethane condoms with oil.
Water Vs. Silicone Lubrications
Upside: Water lubricants are the most popular lubricants because it’s condom, sex toy, diaphragm and vagina friendly. Easily comes off by just rinsing with water.
Down side: Some lubricants tend to dry up quickly, which means you have to stop and reapply.
Upside: Lasts longer and some say it’s silkier.
Down Side: Have to wash off with Soap, doesn’t fully come off by just rinsing with water. Can’t be used with silicone based sex toys, because it degrades or melts the silicone. Be careful not to ruin your toys.

Coconut Oil – Is my absolute favourite when NOT using a condom as it leaves my vagina smooth and silky, not to mention it lasts a long time.It can also be used for body massages. For some women coconut oil can be a bit too sweet especially if she has a yeast infection.
