10 Best Lubes for Masturbation, According to Sex Experts and Reviews

Guide For The Orally Challenged

No matter what you call it—solo sex, private time, good vibes—masturbation is often a key part of sexual health. And no matter how you like to get off, lube for masturbation is a must…even if you don’t know it yet. If you’re someone with vulva, then you might not have even considered using lube for masturbation (especially when a sex toy isn’t involved). But lube can be critical for enhancing sensation and avoiding irritation caused by dry friction—just like it is for the use of vibrators—which is why we’re here to present the very best lubes for masturbation.

The Best Personal Lubricants

A creamy white lubricant that combines water and dimethicone silicone, Sliquid Silk offers the best of both worlds: long-lasting, non-sticky wetness that is safe for use with all types of condoms and with some silicone toys (unlike pure-silicone lubricants). While it is pH balanced for the vagina, it’s also suitable for anal use and penile masturbation. However, its unpleasant taste may be a drawback for some people.

The Best Lubes for Moms for Every Occasion—From TTC to Living Your Best Sex Life

If I were limited to recommending one simple way to add a splash of extra fun, pleasure, and comfort to intimacy, it would be lube. Sexual lubricants are easily overlooked for a variety of reasons. Some worry that using them means you don’t get wet enough “naturally.” Others assume that they will inevitably irritate your vulva. While any fear or doubt is totally valid, it would also be a shame to miss out on a valuable resource that could potentially enhance your sex life in fulfilling ways.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: — November 17, 2022 — DALLAS, Texas — Sliquid has been recognized with two XBIZ Awards nominations, for “Sex Lubricant Company of the Year” and “Sex Lubricant of the Year.”

XBIZ Awards Nominations

“As a wellness brand built on the promise of formulating the most natural and effective lubricants for everyone, we are deeply honored to be nominated in these two specific categories,” Sliquid’s founder and CEO Dean Elliott said.

This past March, Sliquid hit a milestone anniversary as it turned 20 years old. Elliott started the company in 2002 with a single formula called H2O which, to this day, is still the brand’s top seller. Sliquid now boasts a range consisting of three collections, including its Naturals, Organics, and Ride Bodyworx lines. The company is also the creator of theFTM wellness range, the T-Collection, with Buck Angel, and a premium lubricant collaboration, Ride Rocco, with gay adult performer Rocco Steele.

Sliquid Sparkle, the newest addition to the Sliquid Naturals collection, has received a 2023 XBIZ Awards nomination for “Sex Lubricant of the Year.” Sparkle is Sliquid’s premiere Pride-edition sex lubricant that also acts as a fundraising campaign for two North Texas-based LGBTQ+ nonprofits, whose services directly impact the rainbow community in which Sliquid’s base of operations exists. Though Sparkle is marketed as a Pride-edition lubricant, it is available to the public year-round. Similarly, the donations to these two non-profits will also be ongoing.

“We truly value the acknowledgment of our company and Sparkle by the great team at XBIZ and our industry peers,” Elliott continued. “Being recognized for who we are as a brand, in our twentieth year, nonetheless, as well as having such an important lubricant as Sparkle also nominated, is invaluable to the brand. I thank XBIZ for this recognition and am looking forward to bringing home a win for the entire Sliquid team.”

The 2023 XBIZ Awards will crown the best-of-the-best in adult Sunday, Jan. 15 at the historic Hollywood Palladium; in keeping with tradition, select award categories under Web & Technology, Pleasure Products and Retail will be presented as part of the annual XBIZ Honors ceremonies..
