DEAR DOCTOR M: What lube products do you recommend, and what's the difference between water based and oil based lubes? - Kate S.
Whether you’re battling dryness and discomfort during sex, are with a long-term partner and have fallen into a bit of a rut, or simply are looking to try something new – lubricants are a great way to change things up and add a bit of experimentation without getting too fancy. If you’re looking for a simple, standard lube – you can’t go wrong with Astroglide.
Astroglide Liquid is a thin, water-based lubricant that enhances pleasure for you and your partner. It can be used for personal pleasure as well as for intercourse. It does not come with any bells and whistles, like unique flavors or sensations, but is rather a fabulous all-purpose lube. It performs very well, and I would recommend it to anyone!
Features: Water based, Latex Safe, Not Sticky, Long Lasting, No Residue, No Taste, No Smell
Ingredients: Purified Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Polyquaternium 15, Methylparaben, Propylparaben
Astroglide is an odorless, colorless, and tasteless lubricant that is designed to enhance your pleasure without overstimulating your senses. While other lubricants promise warming sensations, come in different flavors, or offer other sensations such as tingling – these sensations sometimes take away from what your partner is doing to stimulate you. Instead, Astroglide Liquid is simple and easy to use – allowing you to focus on your pleasure with an easy, natural glide.
This lubricant is thin, soft, and silky for ultimate pleasure. Unlike other brands, it does not get thick or sticky during use. It is also incredibly long-lasting, so you can easily transition from foreplay to sex without having to re-apply. Once you’re down, clean up is easy, and the lube leaves no residue behind.
Since it is water-based, soap and water do the trick for a simple clean up. However, due to the pH and glycerin levels of the lubricant, you should clean up immediately after use. Otherwise, it could lead to an uncomfortable yeast infection. Just be aware that this lubricant contains both parabens and glycerine, which are known to be irritating chemicals. If you tend to get infections or pain from lubricants, try a natural or paraben and glycerine free alternative.
