Lube Reviews

Lube reviews are priceless when it comes to choosing the right type of sex lubricants for you. There are many different kinds, and even within the major types the formulations can differ enormously.

What are the main types of sex lube? There’s water-based lube, silicone lube, anal lube, oil-based lube and hybrid lube. Hybrid lubricants are usually a blend of silicone and water which give fantastic longevity and glide, while many of them are safe to use on a variety of sex toy materials.

Can you use silicone lube with silicone sex toys? Yes, contrary to popular belief. If your sex toy is genuine silicone, you can use silicone lubricant with it. If you’re unsure, try a dot on a small area of the toy (such as the base).

Why should you use lube? Sex lubricant is obviously fantastic to ease the glide and avoid chafing and discomfort when using your sex toys. Particularly if you’re using butt plugs and other anal sex toys, as the anal area does not produce its own natural lubricant like the vagina.

Lube has additional benefits too. It can help increase sensitivity during intimate moments and sex, as well as giving you a helping hand if you don’t produce enough natural lubrication. Lube is fantastic for self-exploration and masturbation, too. Allow your fingertips to roam freely with the help of a few dots of lubricant, and you’ll soon realise how enhanced your self-pleasure session is.

The lube reviews here on the Cara Sutra sex blog provide honest and thorough write-ups of many different types, brands and formulations of lube. I hope you enjoy browsing these reviews and finding your next fantastic lube.

Spurt Premium Silicone Lubricant 250ml Review | Pleasure Panel

Brand:
Spurt
Materials:

Silicone lubricants use far fewer ingredients than water based or hybrid lubes; which tends to be great for me as I have very sensitive skin and have had some quite nasty reactions in the past. Its also great if, again like me, you are susceptible to UTI’s or yeast infections as there is no glycol/glycerine etc, so you aren’t adding sugars to your vagina.

Described as being a super thick water-based lubricant that is also free from parabens and glycerin we couldn’t wait to take the Wicked Sensual Care Toy Love Water Based Lubricant from Simply Pleasure for a spin.

Brand:
System JO
Materials:

A little back story this System JO H2O Lube Cotton Candy Flavoured Lube (available from Simply Pleasure) is what kind of attracted me to it in the first place -as I thought it was such a lovely idea. Its history is described as nostalgic to the 1904 when candy floss was first invented at a fair and gives you a very romantic idea especially the year and era it is based on which really gave the product it self a bit of story almost.
