How to use lube to make sex and masturbation *so* much better
What do use for lubricant? - relationship advice
Even some healthcare professionals still recommend it even though it was never designed for sexual use. Please note: we are not picking on Vaseline as a brand. It is a high quality petroleum jelly, and certainly has its place in the home medicine cabinet — the comments below apply to all petroleum jelly products. It is a soft and semi liquid mixture of hydrocarbons that is white, transparent and mainly used for healing of skin, intended to be used as a topical cream, locally applied over the part of the body where the skin has become wounded or cut. Naturally people assume that it moisturises and hydrates skin, therefore is good for sex.
Should you use Petroleum Jelly as Lube?
Lubricant still wrongly seems to be thought of as something only two types of people use: horny teen boys who've found their dad's 'jazzy mags' or older women who have lost their natural lubrication due to ageing. This couldn't be further from the truth. Lube is not only butt loads of fun to use and play with so many textures, sensations and flavours to try! Yep, using lube reduces the risk of tearing and injury - especially if you're having anal or super-rough penetrative sex.
If you're thinking about having anal sex or engaging in any kind of anal play, your safety and comfort and pleasure should always be at the forefront of your mind. Unfortunately, when it comes to anal penetration, you can't just go in there without any preparation. You're going to need a good quality lubricant especially designed for the anus.
