What is lube and what is it used for?

We’re glad you asked.

In a world that is increasingly more accepting and open-minded about sex, there is still a lack of information about using personal lubricants.

Why is lube important?

We believe you deserve the most pleasurable, satisfying sexual experience possible, and we take pride in the products we have created to help you do just that. Here are the biggest reasons to use lube:

  1. Decrease friction and increase pleasure
  2. Decrease the possibility of micro-tears and fissures
  3. Decrease vaginal dryness

Increase pleasure using lube

Using a personal lubricant can decrease friction and increase pleasure. Used solo with pleasure products, lube will take your self-love to a whole new level, and used with a partner, it can enhance intimacy and make good sex great. Lube is also an integral component in anal play.

Microtears in condoms and skin

From a medical standpoint, lube decreases the possibility of micro-tears and fissures during sexual activity, reducing the risk of contracting or spreading STIs and HIV. When properly used with condoms, lube can also lower the risk of condom breakage during sex.

Lickable lube for dryness

Some seek out lube because of vaginal dryness, a common condition in people of all ages that can be caused by stress, changes in hormone levels due to the menstruation cycle, perimenopause, menopause, having a hysterectomy, and certain medications, either prescribed or over the counter. Vaginal dryness can contribute to painful sex, and our lubricants will help with that. Lickable lube with flavor is great for adding a tasty experience while increasing moisture. 


There are several types of lube to choose from, and it’s important to remember that all bodies are different. The more you learn and explore, the better your individual experience will be. We are honored to be a part of your journey towards sexual health and wellness.
