Why is using lube essential?

I hate to break it to you but...

At one point or another you’re going to need to use lube during intimate moments with your partner, or with yourself.

Relax, it’s completely normal.

And yes, I’ve heard the rumors that if you need to use lube down there, there’s something wrong with you.

Let’s shut that down right now.

Here are 5 reasons why you should feel free to use lube whenever you want during sex


Sometimes your body takes its time catching up to your mind.

We all know that getting wet down there is a sign of arousal in women.

But the thing is, even when you’re turned on, it takes a while for your body to get on the same page as your mind.

This is also why we have foreplay, and a little lube helps speed things up for your body.

Using lube can lessen the painful friction that gets in the way of all those good feelings.


Even a small amount of lubrication can get you going.

You’ll probably discover that as you go along, you’ll become more turned on, and your body will take care of the rest.


It can help offset some issues that affect your natural lubrication.

There are a lot of reasons why you might feel like your vagina isn’t lubricating itself enough or than it used to.

Your cycle alone can affect lubrication.

But luckily, lube is now widely accessible to help you when you most need it.


Lube can help you figure out what you like while self-pleasuring.

There’s no reason to only pull it up during partnered sex.

Lube can also be great for self-pleasuring!


It can make anal sex more pleasurable than painful.

Whether you’re thinking about attempting anal sex or have already tried it but want to give it another shot, using lube is an essential aspect of making it enjoyable rather than terrifying.


Using lube will not make you less of a woman.

The next time you think that there is shame around using lube, remember that sex is wonderful.... but so are slip and slides.
