Life beyond KY – The Wide, Wet World of Lube
The two main categories of latex-safe lubes are water-based and silicone. Water-based are most common, their liquid form being what people are most familiar with (KY, for example). All water-based lubes are latex-safe, absorb easily into the body and can be reactivated with saliva or water. There are a lot of water-based lubes on the market. Choosing the right one depends on its viscosity (liquid, gel or cream) and what you plan on lubin’.
Liquids are the thinnest of the three, great for those who’d like to dampen but not drench. Sliquid Organics Natural and Yes! Organic Lube are KY alternatives that feel closest to the brand-name without glycerin or parabens.
