What is the difference between water-based, silicone-based, and oil-based lubricants?

Many people think that using lubricants is a disgusting or shameful thing, or think that lubricants are used for mature women with vaginal dryness. But is this really the case? This time I want to share with you all kinds of lubricants, because lubricants are good friends of sex.

There are two reasons for female secretion
First, the foreplay is insufficient and the body is not ready;

Second, the body produces less secretion. Some are innate, and some are due to unhealed body, illness, mental stress, menopause, old age and other reasons after giving birth. In the second case, the use of lubricants can eliminate the discomfort during sex, which is good for both parties, so it is only when choosing the right lubricating fluid to linearly improve the sexual life index. If your sex life is uncoordinated for a long time, you should consult professionals.

Lubricants are divided into three types: water-based lubricants, silicon-based lubricants, and oil-based lubricants.

First of all, it is important to make it clear that Vaseline, BB oil, Hand Cream, shower gel, etc. cannot be used as lubricants. Because they are all petroleum by-products and contain oil. When used as a lubricant, they will erode the surface of the latex condom, increasing the risk of condom breakage, and making the condom lose its contraceptive and disease-preventing functions. In addition, because these items will seriously affect the Ph value of female Daoyin, forming an oil film inside Daoyin, which can cause problems such as tract inflammation, odor secretion, and reduction of natural secretion, so do not use these items as a lubricant.

Once a girl asked me, she didn't understand why she had no natural secretion at all, and she felt hard when she had sex. I asked: Have you tried using lubricant to help you? She said: I usually use BB oil as a lubricant, is it bad? It turns out that this girl used BB oil as a lubricant for a long time, which affected Daoyin’s health and made sex uncomfortable.

You may ask: Isn’t it said that there is an oil-based lubricant?

Yes, oil-based lubricant is a type of lubricant, but it contains oil, so it cannot be used with latex condoms. Oil-based lubricants have a long history. The earliest people used vegetable oils such as olive oil and coconut oil as lubricants, but the oil easily broke the latex condoms and affected women's dao yin health. The oil-based lubricant developed later, added with vitamin E, beeswax and other ingredients, can be used for medical purposes as well as for sexual purposes.

Since oil-based lubricants cannot be used with latex condoms, why would anyone buy them? The advantage of oil-based lubricants is that they are not volatile, super slippery, and relatively difficult to clean. It can be used daily in non-latex condom anal sex and non-latex condom vaginal sex. There are some sex toys that cannot be used with oil-based lubricants. Similarly, oil-based lubricants are not recommended for vaginal intercourse because they are not easy to decompose and can easily cause vaginal discomfort.

In the case of fewer people buying, there are very few oil-based lubricants on the market. When choosing lubricants, everyone will choose water-based lubricants and silicon-based lubricants.

What kind of lubricant is usually on the condom? The lubricant of the condom is always slippery to the touch, giving the impression that it is difficult to clean. Yes, this is a silicone-based lubricant!

Silicone-based lubricant, English Silicone-based lubricant, the composition is silicon-based, usually used to make shampoo, cosmetics and so on. Silicon-based lubricant is not absorbed by the human body, so it has the characteristics of long-lasting lubrication and will not cause harm to the human body. The characteristic of long-lasting lubrication is that silicon-based lubricants do not contain water and are not easy to volatilize. Water-based lubricants are easy to dry if they contain water. However, the silicone-based lubricant does not contain water, so it can be used in water. This is the best choice for people who want to play in the water with mandarin ducks.

Silicon-based lubricants are suitable for female sex, condoms, anal sex, and non-silicone sex toys. This lubricant is really popular!

So are there any disadvantages to silicon-based lubricants?

Silicon-based lubricants cannot be used on pure silicone sex toys, because the chemical interaction between silicon and silicon will cause the silicone surface of the sex toys to be corroded and tiny holes appear. Although the degree of erosion cannot be seen with the naked eye, bacteria will breed in the pores and affect the health of the reproductive area.

Another disadvantage is that it is difficult to clean. Silicon-based lubricants do not contain water. After washing with water, they will still feel slimy and require more cleaning supplies. This is also the performance of long-lasting lubrication, and the amount required during use will be less than that of water-soluble lubricants.

Common brands on the market include: eros, pjur, SuperSlyde, etc. Silicon-based lubricants are more popular with people who love anal sex. There is no natural secretion in the anus. Using silicone-based lubricants as a lubricating medium not only ensures that the condom works, but also reduces the pain of anal sex.

There is also a water-based lubricant?

Each lubricant has its advantages and disadvantages, but the best is the water-based lubricant.

The disadvantages of water-based lubricants include: easy to dry (because most of the ingredients are water), the amount used is more than silicone-based and oily, and may contain glycerin (Glycerin).

Speaking of the problem of glycerin, glycerin has a sweet taste, but it is not sugar. It is a humectant and is widely used in food processing and skin care products. Some articles believe that glycerin does not contain sugar, so it will not cause Candida attacks due to sugar. On the contrary, glycerin may affect the Ph value of Daoyin, causing bacterial growth and inflammation of Daoyin.

In addition, it is said that glycerin will be converted into sugar. Glycerin is an alcohol in the chemical structure, and there is no sugar in the structure. When glycerol encounters a certain invertase, it may be converted into sugar, causing the growth of Candida. But these articles do not explain what happens when glycerin is converted into sugar in Daoyin.

Regarding the problem of glycerin, the conclusion is that glycerin may affect the Ph value of tract Yin, thereby increasing the chance of bacterial growth and tract inflammation. As for how glycerin is converted into sugar and affects the health of Daoyin, more information is needed. The KY that everyone often talks about is actually a brand, not a synonym for lubricants. KY contains glycerin. If you or your female have a medical history of a yeast infection or are prone to allergies, use glycerin-containing lubricants with caution.

So how should we choose the water-based lubricant that suits us?

Common brands of water-based lubricants are: Durex, Viamax, Pjur, Sliquid, Hathor Aphrodisia, Lelo and so on. In order to improve the shortcomings of water-based lubricants, there are many water-based lubricants added with plant extracts on the market to create different textures. Some are sticky, some are more moist, some are edible and have different flavors. In addition to recommending women not to choose lubricants containing glycerin, everyone should not choose edible water-based lubricants of unknown origin because they are greedy for a while. These unidentified sweet products may contain sugar, and these sugars will make Candida active (Candida prefers an environment with high sugar content, so women with Candida infection will quit sweets), causing Candida to grow.

The edible water-based lubricant produced by reliable brands (such as Hathor Aphrodisia) uses sugar substitutes as a sweet source to avoid damaging the health of the tract. Water-based lubricants can be used in any way of sexual intercourse, and can also be used in sex toys. Made to imitate female secretion, easy to clean and easy to absorb.

As for male friends, if you want to enjoy the comfort of airplane cups, you can choose water-based lubricants with different viscosities. Since some lubricants are specially used with airplane cups, they will contain glycerin as a moisturizer to make the lubricant softer, so it is more suitable for men. Lubricants are not a patent for women. Silicone jet cups can only use water-based lubricants, so men should also pay attention to their own benefits.

If vaginal secretions are sufficient, lubricants are not needed during intercourse. However, when using sex toys, geisha balls, and menstrual cups, lubricants can be used to help the items enter the dao yin. It can be seen that lubricants are not necessarily used for sexual intercourse.

Don't use poor quality products casually, such as condoms and lubricants, to protect your health and quality sex life. We have to pay attention to many personal needs. Lubricants and condoms are one of the daily necessities. Like sanitary napkins and shampoo, you have to find what you like to feel comfortable.

Seeing this, I don’t know if you know something about lubricating fluid?
