H20; BabelandI once asked a sex shop properietress for the best sex advice she could give to couples and she immediately waxed poetic about lube. Her arguments were so compelling, it made me wonder how anyone ever has sex without some lubricant at their bedside.
Venturing into yet another sex shop, Babeland, I then drilled the store clerk about the best lubes -- for any bedroom. She sent me home with some advice and three of the best lubes in Babeland.
She first clued me in about the first thing all women should know: Your lube needs to be glycerin free.
Glycerin is an irritant found in some lubes, and can cause a yeast infection -- which is so the opposite of what we want happening in the bedroom. Paraben free is also recommended by the Babeland super helfpul lady, as that whole connection to breast cancer is also very un-sexy. All of these recommended lubes are paraben and glycerin free.
The H20 lube has a thin consistency, making it easy to go on. But the best thing about this lube is what's lacking. No smell, no taste, nothing to make you gag and nothing gets stained.
This all-natural, vegan lubricant is thicker than the H20, and stays on for a long time. The store clerk also recommends this for the dudes, as the Horny Goat Weed herb is a natural aphrodisiac for men.
Another all-natural, vegan option, Sliquid Organics Sensation has a kick. A great lube when you want to shake things up a bit in the boudouir, Sensation starts off cool, then warms as things start moving. Babeland says this is a crowd favorite.
