Lube | which one is right for you and your sexual wellbeing?

'The wetter, the better'.

Personal lubricants are not just about combatting vaginal dryness, they are also all about enabling amazing sex sessions with less friction and longer-lasting orgasms.

But, not only that - these days lube is also used for smoother skin, hair serum, makeup primer, massage oil, moisturizer, and even shoe polish just like the amazing Uberlube.

It doesn't matter how old you are or what your gender is, lube can benefit everyone, all of the time in many different ways.

Asking around my local area I asked a few people the following question. 'Why do you choose lube and how does it benefit you'? The most common answer I received was along the lines of  "Lubricant makes sex sessions more pleasurable, enjoyable and longer-lasting."

So how do you know which lube to buy and which one is right for you?

To start with, there are a few different bases of lubricants on the market today.

  • Water-Based
  • Silicone-Based
  • Oil
  • Hybrid - these lubes are a combination of both water and silicone.

Let's check out the Pros and Cons for Water-based and Silicone-based lubes.


Water-based lubricants are safe to use with condoms and have been known to decrease the chance of your condom breaking. People have been known to call water-based lube the 'VERSATILE' lube as it is a go-to for most women.

Water-based lubes are a unique dual purpose vaginal moisturiser and lubricant all in one and highly effective in treating the symptoms of vaginal dryness. They won't stain your sheets, they wash off very easily in water and they are super safe to use and also easy on your skin.

They can be used for amazing foreplay and sex sessions and also with your favourite luxury silicone sex toys. They are pH balanced which will maintain the health of your vagina and destroy any irritation.

Water Based Lubricant


Dame Products - Alu is water-based from Organic Aloe Vera. Luxury Lubricants are worth every single cent you pay for them. These products are not only being used with your pride and joy vibrator/s, but they are also being used internally and you want to make sure they are right for your body and your own sexual health and wellbeing. 


Silicone is hypoallergenic, so most people would not experience a reaction to this type of lube if you have really sensitive skin.

Silicone-based lubricant lasts longer than water-based and does not need to be reapplied as it won't dry out as quickly. Silky silicone is great for shower sex as a replacement to water-based. 

It is a great lube to use with condoms BUT, there is a downside to silicone-based lube. They should not be your first choice to use with your luxury sex toys. The silicone will deteriorate your toys and can cause bacteria to grow which is not safe for your sexual health and wellbeing.

Silicone-based lubricants can be messy and may stain your sheets so clean up  can be a bit of a sticky mess.

Silicone Based lube and massage oil

The Aphrodisia Silicone Gel is unique and can be used as a great massage gel and doubles as a silicone-based lubricant. This gel is infused with the Aphrodisia fragrance inspired by the Kama Sutra. It is long-lasting, for external use only and is 100% Vegan.

When shopping for lube always be careful to look at the ingredients and pH value. Always aim for the following:

  • Paraben-Free
  • Glycerin-Free
  • Petroleum-Free

If you are going to be using your lube with condoms and sex toys try to find a lube that is latex, rubber and plastic-friendly.
