Wait, You Have Sex Without Lube?
4 Reasons & Ways To Use Lube
Here’s the thing, having sex without lube can be totally amazing. But it’s a little bit like ordering a sundae and just receiving a scoop of vanilla without toppings. It’s delicious & does the trick, but how much more would sprinkles, chocolate sauce, and a cherry on top add?
We get it, if you’re a lube novice, it can be intimidating to just jump in and try it. We’ve heard all the same things you have before too, but we can promise you that adding lube into your sex life doesn’t mean there is something wrong with you, and the old phrase, “I don’t need it” has no place here. While it is true that some women’s vaginas produce less natural lubrication (due to a variety of reasons & lube is incredible for combatting pain during sex), that is not the only point of lube. Long story SUPER short: lubricants are designed to ease discomfort AND reduce friction while enhancing your sexual experiences both in solo and partnered play.
Lube is great for ALL sex– regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, and type (add Coconut Love Oil to your next bj and thank us later).
There are tons of options on the market– oil-based (reminder that oil-based lubricants are not compatible with latex condoms), water-based, silicone-based, the list goes on… And there is a lot of overwhelming information to match. We’re here to break it down for you.
So you get it, using lube should be easy, fun, and additive. Not stressful, scary, or difficult. Repeat after WOO: Lube is my friend.
We’re breaking down 4 easy ways to introduce lubricant into your life in order to SPREAD.THE.LOVE (Oil). Too far?
Using Lube By Yourself
People have two lives– the one they are born into, and the one they begin living after they masturbate with lube for the first time. Trust us here.
WOO Tip: Squirt a little lube in your palm, warm it up, and start to touch and tease yourself. Add Vibez into the mix and then go and apologize to your neighbors.
Using Lube With Your Partner
Lube 🤝 Partnered Sex
Whether you’re engaging in penetrative sex, oral sex, manual stimulation, or toy stimulation with a partner, lube will be additive (just make sure the chosen lube is compatible with your toy/condom of choice– a quick google search will help). Tell your partner you want to experiment with lube and make the decision together of what lubricant you want to try. A great way to start with lube is to use it as a massage oil during foreplay. Get your partner comfortable with the feel and the consistency on their body, before moving towards their most intimate parts. Once your partner relaxes into the activity, gradually move to manually tease your partner's bits with the lube to ensure full comfort. Then, if oral and/or penetrative sex is in the cards, add a little bit more to the mix before beginning (FYI, make sure your lube is safe to consume before including it in oral).
WOO Tip: Squirt lube directly into your hand & warm it up before placing it on your partner by massaging your palms together. Warm lube = less shock to the naked body.
Oral, Oral, Oral.
It goes without saying if you’re using lube for oral make sure it’s all-natural, safe to consume, and tastes delicious (*Hint* Coconut Love Oil).
We digress… Adding lube to oral sex is a total game-changer. We already know that your partner is a snack, but add some Coconut Love Oil and watch them turn into a whole dessert before your eyes (and mouth).
WOO Tip: Same note as above. Make sure you play with the lube in your hand before applying it to your partner’s bits. Nothing says limp dick like shockingly cold liquid. Also, if you want to spice things up, try using a vibrator at the base of his balls, or on her vulva while you’re orally pleasuring them. I hope you’re ready for a proposal.
The good news is that oil-based lube isn’t water-soluble, so it won’t break down in the shower or bath. This makes it the perfect addition to shower play, keeping you both smooth, soft, and friction-free. The bad news is you probably won’t get out of the shower once you try it. RIP water bill.
WOO Tip: Leave your Coconut Love Oil in the shower. When your partner jumps in to shower, ask if they mind if you join. Let the heat collect & the steam (and hot AF tension) build up. When they think you’re just reaching for your body wash, grab the lube and start to play.
