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.

Sliquid nominated at 2011 AVN Awards – Best Sex Accessory

Sliquid Lubes was announced as a nominee for “Best Sex Accessory” for the 2011 AVN awards show. The AVN awards show, held annually in Las Vegas, and known around the world as the “porn” awards, began incorporating the adult novelty market in the awards show in 2009. Sliquid Organics won “Best Lube, Lotion or Potion” in 2009 at the AVN Awards show, and we are expecting a solid lead on the competition this year, with the complete rebranding of the Sliquid Naturals line.

If you are unable to make it to Las Vegas this January for the tradeshow and festivities, you can always catch up after the fact on Showtime, who has broadcast the Awards show for many years, though the adult novelty awards probably won’t make it out of the cutting room. If you are in the review industry, put in a good word for Sliquid!
