There are numerous benefits to using lubricant but to name a few: 

Stress-free Pleasure: Lubricants take the stress out of the equation when you are having a harder time getting properly wet. Allowing you to focus on what really matters – your pleasure. Because who needs added stress in the bedroom?

Enhanced Comfort: Say goodbye to discomfort and hello to smooth sailing! Intimate lubricants are your secret weapon for a comfy experience by helping your vulva to be (even more) lubricated.

Easier to Orgasm: Using lubricant can significantly increase your chances of reaching an orgasm. 50 percent of men and women who used lubricant said it made it easier to have an orgasm, according to a study out of Indiana University's Center for Sexual Health Promotion.

Increased Sensitivity: Ready to turn up the heat? Some lubricants enhance sensitivity, making every touch and sensation more electrifying. Get ready to feel it all!

Endless Playtime: Ever wish you had a magic potion for extended play? Well, here it is! This lubricant keeps the fun going without missing a beat.

Condom Control: If you're using protection, you're actually going to make your condoms even safer by using lube - the reduced friction by using lube creates more of a smooth and controlled motion that will prevent any worrying about the safety of your condom.

Water-Based Lubricants: These lubes give a very natural feeling. However, they may not last as long as some would like and may need to be reapplied during sex to maintain moisture. Water based-lubes wash off easily, are easy to clean out of sheets and won't leave stains. They are not very suitable for shower play as they will wash away very easily.

Silicone-based lubricants: Feel silky but slightly sticky on the skin. Silicone-based lubes tend to last longer than water-based lubricants. However, they do not rinse off as easily and irritate some women if they aren’t rinsed immediately after sex. Silicone-based lube is more difficult to clean and they might leave stains on your bedding. Be careful not to use silicone-based lubricants with silicone-based toys, as they can break down the rubber over time.

Oil-based lubricants: Have a silky feeling that lasts long on the skin. Oil-based lube doesn't wash off as easily and is more difficult to clean off your body and sheets. Oil-based lube should be used with caution; they cannot be used with latex condoms, toys or diaphragms as it will weaken the latex.

There is no right or wrong when it comes to lubes; it is very personal what you might prefer! Fannie offers a wide variety of lubes in our 'potions' section, with different ingredients and vegan options as well! Consult the descriptions on the product page's to see the different qualities of each lube.

Conclusion: Ladies, in the world of pleasure, intimate lubricants are the unsung heroines ensuring your experience is nothing short of amazing. So, embrace the quirks, try something new, and let the pleasure commence! Because, in the quirky world of pleasure, a little slip and slide can make all the difference.
