Why do we need lubricants?
The sexual desire is different for everyone, you must have encountered events where your pleasure partner is not fully aroused or are stressed or tired, that would eventually lead to an insufficient arousal fluid production by the Vagina. And if you come across any such incident you must have a known the higher friction and pain leading to a unpleasurable night for your female partner.

- Water-based, and
Generally, lubricants package specify which type they belong to, making it convenient for everyone to choose from the avail variety.
You must be thinking why there are different category of lubricants are there, Lub is Lub right. We understand you and to cover that let's talk about these all lubricants one by one.
This type lubricant generally consists of various oil like mineral oil, synthetic hydrocarbons, animal and vegetable oils, etc. This type of Lubricant is very rare on the market at present and is only used by the hospital for digital anal examinations. This category of lubricant is also not very famous among the fun hunter firstly due to its difficultly to clean it after use and secondly due to its compound property that have a property to dissolve latex condoms, risking the it to rupture and fall off. The user of oil-based lubricants also needs to consider that since this oil remain in the body it can cause infections and inflammations.
Mere advantage of this type of lubrication is its longer application, oil-based lubricants can be considered better than the water-based but inferior then silicon-based lubricants.
These lubricants are water-soluble products. The main ingredients of water-based lubricant are water, glycerin, cellulose ether, etc. They are very similar to water in form, usually colorless and transparent, and are currently the most commonly available on the market. These lubricants also do not harm since the acidity and viscosity are similar to the liquid secreted by the body, that’s feels more real.
The water-based lubricant is very easy to clean after application. The user can directly clean the lubricant with the water and a tissue paper. These lubricants do not feel greasy at all and do not leave any color on clothes as well. Moreover, it is proven and tested that these lubricants don’t cause allergies in-general, and are safe to use with condoms and small toys.
However, water-based lubricants are not without deficiencies. Although they are safe and convenient to use, and also easily vaporised. Therefore, the water-based lubrication application time is relatively shorter than any other lubricant available. The user should note that generally, the lubricating effect of water-based lubricant is lost in about 15 minutes, so you need to reapply in the middle of the event. Although water-based lubricants look like water, they are definitely not water.
The main component of silicon-based lubricants is silicone resin. Compared with water-based lubricants, it has higher viscosity, strong water resistance, and non-vaporising properties. Therefore, the lubricating effect of silicon-based lubricants is much longer, and safe to use with condoms. However, it is a bit of a task to clean it after use. You need to use soap, shower gel and other things to wash it off. Moreover, in terms of experience, it is actually inferior as compared to the water-based lubricants.
In Europe and the United States, the sales of water-based lubricants are much huge, mainly because silicon-based lubricants are waterproof, so they are especially suitable for use in water-based sports. In addition, it has a long-lasting lubricating effect and strong friction that will not easily vaporise.
However, one needs follow a precautionary measure while using silicon-based lubricants is that they shall never be used with sex toys made of pure silicone, because pure silicone will be dissolved by it, that would be somewhat similar to the dissolving of condoms with oil-based lubricants.
Of course, under general circumstances, there will be no problems, because few adult toys on the market are made of pure silicone. Also, note that if the silicon-based lubricant gets on the clothes, it can be very difficult to clean it afterwards.
