Condom Depot has compiled useful information to assist you with purchasing the best personal lubricant for your pleasure and needs.
The most frequent questions that our customers ask us, are which lubes are best for sex and anal sex, and which ones contain “benzocaine” a numbing agent that extends the males erection and longevity. Take a look at the descriptions of various lubricants below to educate yourself on their benefits, ingredients, and key performance factors, to find the perfect match for you and/or your partner’s desires.
The #1 reason for condom failure, is lack or absence of good lubrication. Using a quality lube, will without a doubt accentuate your experience when paired with condoms and overall will make you and your partner feel more comfortable while doing the deed. While shopping we strongly encourage steering away from all lube that contains oil. Products such as Baby Oil, Petroleum Jelly (AKA Vaseline), and Massage Oils will damage Latex condoms and products. Condom Depot suggests quality lubes by WET or Pjur. The Number one Rated Favorites are Pjur Original Body Glide (Waterproof & Silicone Based) and WET Original (Water Based), which both have received critical acclaim throughout the media.
Water based lubricants are made from a water soluble base. They are designed to be used with ALL adult sex toys and approved to use with ALL condoms. These lubes are slippery and may need to be re-applied. Depending on the level of quality, water based lubes have a tendency to get what is known as a “Sticky Feeling” and may possibly dry out after bit. Our Favorite Water Based Lubricants are the highly acclaimed new product, WET Ecstasy Water Based, for those who prefer a long-lasting, light liquid formula with an added sensation, and Pjur Aqua for Women, created for daily use and is stain free. Remember, water based lubes are not as silky feeling or as long lasting as silicone based, but are a definite must-have while playing with your adult sex toys.
One of CondomsDepot’s all-time personal favorites! Silicone based lubes are unlike any other. We highly recommend Pjur Eros Original Body Glide or WET Platinum. They are never sticky, completely condom safe, and can be used in water! Unlike some lubes that begin to feel sticky or slimy, silicone lubes always remain slick and very silky feeling.
PLEASE NOTE: Silicone based lubricants SHOULD NOT be used with sex toys made of Cyberskin, Futurotic, NeoSkin, Silicone or EuroSkin, as it will damage your toy.
RECOMMENDATION from the Owners of Condom Depot: John & Kim Fidi personally find the Pjur Brand to be “Hands Down” the BEST lube on the planet. The Pjur Eros Light has a very thin water like consistency while the Pjur EROS Original Body Glide is slightly thicker. Lastly, REMEMBER when using the Pjur EROS Lubricants, only use one or two drops. They are super concentrated, use it SPARINGLY, as a Little Goes a Long Way!
When choosing an anal lube, keep in mind that some anal lubes contain benzocaine (think Novocain for your rectum) that will gently numb the anal area to make anal sex easier. At we suggest the following anal lubes for beginners: China Anal Balm, Durex Play Longer or Anal-ese or the newer Pjur Analyse Me. Although some are cherry flavored, keep in mind that the benzocaine will numb your mouth so oral sex is not recommended. Also try Pjur Backdoor Relaxing Anal Glide contains botanicals that aid in the relaxation of the anal sphincter.
Oral sex with a twist! Wet Fun Flavors come in a variety of flavors, from tropical to refreshing, to tantalize your taste buds. All are condom and toy safe, stain free, and will be sure to add an interesting dimension to your sex life. They are also safe for vaginal use however, they do contain Glycerin so they should be avoided by women who are prone to frequent yeast infections or have any type of sensitivity or allergy to Glycerin.
These lubricants contain special properties that help make your lovemaking experience even more memorable. Condom Depot has some products the when blown on or rubbed create heat and/or cooling sensations! Our three favorites are WET Warming Lubricant, Burning Desire Warming and our newer pick that also helps with dryness is, WET Synergy + Cool Tingle! All of these are great for giving your partner a mind-blowing hand job and additionally can be used for vaginal sex, and they are condom safe. Another cooling lubricant we recommend is Durex Play Tingling that sets off a tingling and cooling sensation when blown on.
Many women have reported that some lubricants aggravate recurrent yeast Infections. If this is an issue for you, we advise you to use Probe Light Personal Lubricant, Liquid Silk or our BEST SELLER and Staff Pick, WET Naturals Silky Supreme. As yeast infections can be extremely troublesome for those with weakened immune systems, we also advocate talking to your healthcare provider before choosing a lubricant.
We now stock a great NEW personal Lubricant From WET that is all Natural. If personal Lubricants have caused you irritation in the past, we highly recommend WET Naturals Line. It contains NO Glycerine, NO sugar and is Paraben Free. Our NEW Favorite!
Please Note: All lubes on our website are safe for use with condoms and adult toys unless otherwise noted. And WE DO NOT SELL products that contain NonOxynol-9 Spermicide.
