Sex Toy Types and Best Lube to Pair
1. Wand Vibrators
A wand vibrator is a hand-held vibrating sex toy containing a long handle and ending in a rounded head. There are many of them, but the magic wand, formerly known as the Hitachi magic wand, takes the "wand of the year" award.
It can be used by both men and women who enjoy a strong sensation. This wand also doubles as a massager and as a nipple stimulator. It has four intensity levels and vibrations to double up the speed for a better feel. One round and you’ll be under this magic wand’s spell, but if you go for a second you might need a nap. They are mostly used externally, so lube isn’t always necessary with these vibrators.
2. Clitoral vibrators
These little fellas like to hand-on tight, but you’ll be the one going for the ride! They are often smaller, less phallic-shaped, and are designed to give your clit an "out-of-this-world" pleasure. They pair well with water-based lubricants. Some come with wings that wrap around, while others have "ears" to fill you with pleasure. Whatever your taste, get one and enjoy.
Dildos are the most popular sex toy for you love birds, as they can be used on any orifice for all genders. They are customized for people who enjoy the feeling of fullness in their back or front door. Most are made of body-safe silicone and others ABS plastic. If you are looking to use lube on the dildo, it is recommended that you use water-based lubes, especially if they are made of silicone. This is to avoid them getting damaged since silicone-based lubes are incompatible with silicone dildos. Don’t break your play toys and order some water-based lube now!
4. G-spot Toys
Every woman loves to orgasm. That is why a g-spot toy is a must-have if you are looking to get your partner moaning. These toys come with a slight curve or a well-positioned bump to help apply firm pressure to the g-spot and get your partner to a vivacious climax. A water-based or hybrid lube is the most efficient to use with this kind of toy.
5. Prostate Toys
“Do men have a G-Spot? Well yes, but it’s actually called the P-Spot!”
These toys are built for men to provide direct stimulation to the prostate. They are slender, similar to the g-spot toys, for those who want more pleasure beyond using their hands. Prostate toys pair well with both water-based or silicone-based lubricants. And while your partner might be a bit uneasy about playing down below, the prostate is one of the most sensitive pleasure centers for men. You’ll leave them vanquished and squirming back for more!
6. Anal Beads
Similar to butt plugs, anal beads are customized to give the sensation of the closing and opening of your dirty little booty hole. Pulling the anal beads out as you orgasm can create a more intense orgasm and raise your oxytocin to the highest level.
They come in different makes, some vibrate, some don’t. However, since the anus is not self-lubricating, you will have to use a lube to get it sliding and giving you the sense of anal fullness. You can use an oil-based or silicone-based lube (provided the toy is not made of silicone). It is recommendable that you lubricate the entire length and not just the first few beads, to provide an easy entry and exit. Don’t want those beads to get stuck half way out, or you might be walking around with a tail until they exit.
Picking the Right Lube for the Right Time
There are different types of lubes depending on your specific needs. Knowing which lube to use and when to use it is essential; specific lubes are used during specific times.
Water-based lubricants are the most popular and have a lot going for them. You can use them with a condom or any toy of your choice. They are preferably used during sex to add to vaginal lubrication. A bonus tip is they come in flavors of chocolate, watermelon, and strawberry so that you can enjoy sweet-smelling romance.
Silicone-based lubricants are suitable for both regular and anal sex. They last longer, don't get sticky, and a tiny amount is enough to get those engines turning. Most are compatible with condoms, they are not recommended for sex toys, especially those made with silicone.Whatever activity you want to use it for, a little #LubeLife will get things moving smoothly.
