The Best Sex Lubes That Don’t Smell Like Motor Oil

Lube is like Maldon salt—it just makes everything better. Sex with and without condoms, solo-masturbating, inserting tampons and making your foreplay into a downsized version of my favorite Japanese television program, Nuru Nuru Treasure Hunter.

There’s no right or wrong amount of lube to use. It’s a choose-your-own-adventure thing. Just clock your body’s needs, and build a rotation of a few different kinds of lubricants to live by your bed.

Best lubes—great buys for sex toys, the menopause and sensitive skin

Choosing the best lube can be overwhelming. There are so many different types, ingredients, and flavors, the options are seemingly endless. While it may make us blush in the pharmacy, it can banish serious chafing and make sex fun again. 

Lubes are great to use with your partner or with sex toys (speaking of which, read our guide to the best vibrators) for a pleasurable experience. “Lube is a great bedroom addition for anyone sexually active—they increase pleasure and boost intimate sensation,” says Stephanie Taylor, managing director of Kegel8. “Introducing extra lubrication to your sex life can make the process far slicker and seamless and can actually make sex safer, too. Condom friction is minimized, meaning they’re less likely to split and result in unwanted STIs and pregnancies.”

Adding lube into the mix can not only make good sex even better but is also great for female masturbation and makes solo play even more pleasurable. It’s also helpful if you’re experiencing common vagina problems post-menopause.

New Sensation: A Guide To Warming, Cooling & Tingling Lubes

While personal lubricants are great for reducing friction and making sex more comfortable, that’s not all they can do!

Warming, cooling, tingling, and icy hot lubes are the perfect way to experience exciting new sensations that can increase pleasure in unique ways.

Dr. Justin Lehmiller, who sits on our medical review board and is a social psychologist and the host of the Sex and Psychology Podcast, explained why people enjoy sensitizing lubes. He told me:

“Some people enjoy sensitizing lubricants because they add a novel element to sex. They can provide new and different sensations, or even heighten sexual pleasure.”

Fortunately, we’ve learned the ins-and-outs of sensitizing lubes so you’ll know what to look for when searching for a product that tickles — or tingles — your fancy.

Sliquid Debuts Soothe Hydrating Body Lotion

Top natural intimates manufacturer Sliquid ( is pleased to announce the addition of a new hydrating body lotion to their award-winning Balance Collection.

As summer approaches and outdoor temperatures rise, people begin exposing more skin in their coolest summer outfits.  Shorts, short-sleeve shirts, and tank tops will soon become the seasonal uniform of millions.  To keep their skin looking fresh and healthy, Sliquid is introducing Soothe, a line of ultra-hydrating body lotions that nourish, revitalize, and enrich skin from head to toe.

“We’ve had wild success and overwhelmingly positive feedback on our last addition to the Balance Collection,” says Dean Elliott, founder, and CEO of Sliquid.  Elliott is referencing Soak, Sliquid’s award-winning line of luxurious bubble baths, which debuted in 2018.  “Developing a creamy lotion that our customers can use to hydrate their skin once they’ve gotten out of the tub or shower was a natural next step in expanding our bath and body care offerings.”

Sliquid Soothe is a moisture-rich lotion that has been infused with natural butters, olive oil, and other essential oils that heal and support the body’s largest and most vulnerable organ, our skin. This luxurious, non-greasy body lotion absorbs quickly, without residue, resulting in hydration that leaves your skin supple and smelling delicious.  Soothe uses notes of mandarin, bergamot, and sweet coconut to envelop your senses while quenching your skin’s thirst for moisture.

Coconut is nearly sugar-free by nature but has a lovely natural sweetness. This refreshing aroma is perfectly captured in the new Soothe Sweet Coconut. With a milky, quintessentially tropical scent, the notes in Sweet Coconut transport your sense of smell right to a sunny beach.  This delicious scent is perfect for use year-round but is sure to become the ultimate self-care indulgence for summer.

Soothe Mandarin Bergamot combines two complementary citrus scents, offering the juicy aroma of mandarin, married with the spicy, floral notes of bergamot.  This bright, yet seductive, aroma is perfect for anyone who wants a little depth and intensity in the scent of their body lotion.  Sliquid Mandarin Bergamot will transport your sense of smell to a sultry summer night in the jungle, while also nourishing and protecting your skin.

Soothe Sweet Coconut and Soothe Mandarin Bergamot are available in beautiful, matte black 8.5 bottles equipped with a gold, easy pump top that is re-lockable, making it ideal for travel. The sleek aesthetics of Soothe are distinctly reminiscent of the spa-inspired packaging associated with the Sliquid Balance Collection. For wholesale information, please email, or contact your preferred distributor to check availability.


Journey into the green sex market among bio lubricants, vegan condoms and ecological sex toys

Yes, eco-friendly sex is finally a reality.

Vegan condoms, sex toys created with bio plastics, green lubricants: eco-friendly sex is finally a reality. Of course, maybe vegan condoms (currently) you won’t find them in the supermarket next to those of Durex (which in any case has made a line of lubricants with natural ingredients), but now online you can choose from many brands that use natural and sustainable materials, have a cruelty free and zero impact (or almost) production process and are dedicated to creating sexual culture and eco awareness.

How to Have Super Intimate, Romantic Sex In The Bath

There are a lot of depictions of shower sex in movies and shows, but if you’ve ever given it a go, you know it’s not for the faint of heart. What I don’t understand is why we rarely ever see people having sex in the bath.

Don’t get me wrong; there’s a lot of sensual, romantic, pre-sex (I assume) soaking in the bathtub. Bathtubs equate to romance in our culture. They’re seen as part of the overall seduction, but not for actual sex.

Our Favourite Lubricants on the Market

Using a personal lubricant during intercourse (vaginal or anal) or while using a sex toy is ideal for everyone. It’s known to enhance your sexual pleasure, relieve dryness and soreness that can occur from penetration (both the penetrated and penetrating partner), and reduces friction to lessen your chances of becoming injured during sexual play. For folks into anal sex, it’s quite necessary to use to prevent tearing, as the anus is not a self-lubricating orifice.

Nonetheless, there are so many different lubes on the market to choose from, each with their set of ingredients and promises of sexual enhancements. How does one pick the best option for them?

5 Vegan Non-Toxic Lubes Gwyneth Paltrow Would Approve Of

Not all personal care products are created equal – and the same goes for your lube.

In a perfect world, the products we buy from stores would be kind to animals, have as little negative impact on the environment as possible, and not contain potentially harmful ingredients. This is especially true when you’re looking for very personal products, like lube. It’s something that’s completely normal for anyone to buy, but some of the most well-known brands not only rely on animal testing but also contain ingredients you might not want near your nethers.

In an article on Goop, the wellness brand created by Oscar-winning actor Gwyneth Paltrow, Doctor Maggie Ney, co-director at the Women’s Clinic at the Akasha Center in Santa Monica, explains how toxic ingredients in common lubricants can have a negative effect on health.

Sliquid Set For SPAM Takeover

Dallas, TX — Top, natural intimates manufacturer Sliquid ( is staging a takeover of the Sex Professionals and Manufacturers (SPAM) Facebook group from February 8th – 12th.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the crew at Sliquid is taking their turn at facilitating the content for the popular industry-led Facebook group called Sex Professionals and Manufacturers, or SPAM.  The group, created by Deja Vu Love Boutique’s Megan Swartz, was launched in April of 2020 as the world began to shut down due to the pandemic.  The group, as stated on their page, “is designed to help retail sales associates learn about new products to come and polish up on the old as well.”

“We are super-duper excited to be taking over the SPAM page next week, says Michelle Marcus, VP of Sales and Merchandising for Sliquid.  “The group is a very useful resource that has successfully kept retailers and manufacturers connected at a time when we are unable to see each other for in-person training.  Erik and I have a lot of fun things planned, including hilarious video content, fun contests, tons of fabulous prizes, and, most importantly, training on every item in our extensive product range.”

Facebook Live product training will take place Tuesday through Friday, starting with the Sliquid Naturals Collection on February 9th.  There are also several giveaways planned for every day of the week and members can expect a Facebook Live appearance by trans activist Buck Angel on Friday.  The full schedule of events for the week will be posted this coming Sunday afternoon.
