Condoms & Lube: The Bestest Of Friends


This article by Erika W. Smith for Refinery 29 discusses the many reasons why lube and condoms make a great team. Read an excerpt below, then the full piece here:

“There are many ways that lube can make sex better — you can use it to make penetrative vaginal or anal sex easier, rub some on your clitoris during masturbation, and even use it to enhance nipple play. When used with a condom, lube reduces the risk of breakage or tearing —and of course, feels amazing. But did you know that can use lube both on and inside a condom? First, choose the right lube. Oil-based lubes can break down latex condoms and make them less effective and more likely to break, so a water- or silicone-based lube is the way to go.”
