Condom lube is necessary for great sex. Whether it's water-based lubricant or silicone-based lubricant, it's important to have lube on hand. Learn more!
Lubricants reduce friction during sex resulting in fewer broken condoms AND may contribute to greater sexual pleasure, so it makes sense that many condoms are pre-lubricated right off the shelves.Latex condoms are lubricated with EITHER a water or silicone-based lube. You’ll NEVER see a latex condom pre-lubricated with anything oil-based, because oil can DEGRADE the condom and reduce its effectiveness. Water-based lube washes off very easily. If it ever dries up during sex, add a little water to revive it. A study conducted by the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University [GFX shows IU logo w/copy: Center for Sexual Health Promotion] showed fewer reports of genital pain with people using water-based lubes, but lubricants containing glycerin MIGHT cause yeast infections if a woman is prone to them.Silicone-based lubes last longer, but need to be washed off with soap and water. Left on the skin for too long, they might cause irritation. Also, be careful of using a silicone-lubed condom on a silicone sex toy…it could degrade the toy. Condoms lubricated with a spermicide such as Nonoxynol 9 offer extra protection against pregnancy. But, spermicide doesn’t offer any additional protection against STIs.Some people find spermicide to cause vaginal or anal irritation. In fact, spermicide condoms carry a warning that says they’re not for rectal use or more than once-a-day vaginal use. Use regularly lubed condoms if you’re concerned about this.
