Water Based Sexual Lubricants

Water Based Sexual Lubricants

Using a sexual lubricant is one of the simplest ways you can make sex feel more pleasurable and last longer too.

Often seen as just for fixing a problem, sexual lubricants benefit not just female sexual pleasure but enhance male sexual performance too. They can also enhance your sexual experience when using a sex toy too.

Water based lubricants are the most versatile of all sexual lubricants. Here at Jo Divine we recommend YES Organic water based lubricants because they are:

  • completely organic
  • do not contain chemical harmful to vagina health such as glycerin, glycols and parabens
  • safe to use for all sexual activities
  • ideal for use with all sex toys, including silicone sex toys

  • free from any smell, taste, colour and are non-staining
  • easy to wash off
  • leave your skin feeling soft without any residue

Which Water Based Lubricant should I choose?

When choosing a sexual lubricant, it is important to consider what it is made from before you put it inside your vagina which is why we only sell skin safe sexual lubricants.

The vagina has a very delicate pH balance, so introducing chemicals found in many commercially available sexual lubricants and products people use as a lubricant substitute can actually do more harm than good.

We don’t recommend using saliva as it drys out very quickly.

Products found in your kitchen / bathroom cupboards should be avoided as they have not been designed as sexual lubricants.

Your vagina, clitoris and anus are both highly absorbant so it is advisable to avoid using products that contain substances which can cause irritation or an allergic reaction, just as you would with cosmetics and hygiene products. Some sexual lubricants available on prescription and frequently prescribed or recommended by GPs contain all the irritating ingredients mentioned above and parabens. These are preservatives that are oestrogenic and have no palce inside our bodies. So always ask your GP what the ingredietns are before theyr prescribe you a product.

To ensure you don’t experience any adverse reaction to your lubricant, alway check the label of any sexual lubricant you buy as many lubricants are manufactured with artificial ingredients and substances that can potentially be harmful to the body. Be aware that some well know brands do NOT list the ignredietns on their packaging, so no ingredients listed, leave it on the shelf. The same goes for condom brands too. Many people think they are allergic to latex when it is the lubricant ingredients on the condom.

Always do a skin test prior to use and if you do use a product and finds it sting, burns or causes itching, wash it off immediately.

Protect Your Sexual Health and Pleasure

Choose a pH balanced lubricant such as YES Organic Lubricants or SUTIL Luxe to keep your vagina happy and healthy.

Water based lubricants can also be used during anal play. YES have created YESBUT organic anal lubricants, specifically balanced to the pH of the anus which is different to the pH of the vagina, offering you a completely natural way to enjoy pleasurable anal sex with a partner or suitable sex toy. SUTIL Luxe is perfect for anal play as it is much longer lasting because it feels like a silicone lubricant.

So get lube savvy and choose a product that will protect your sexual health and pleasure and the environment too.
