Lubricants can increase pleasure during sex especially when used with condoms and dental dams. Lubricants should be used with condoms if you or your partner experiences any vaginal or anal dryness. Some medications such as antidepressants tend to cause vaginal dryness along with low libido. Lubricants should always be used with anal sex because the anus does not self lubricate. Without lubrication the anus can sustain small tears or rips, which can lead to increased risk of contracting HIV and other STDs. Vaginal or anal dryness can cause condoms to break, so adding lubricant can prevent condom breakage and also tearing of the skin on the genitals and the anus.
If you're using a lubricant make sure that is it condom compatible. If it is not condom compatible, select one that is. This information should be on the located on the lubricant bottle. If a lube is not condom compatible it can cause the condom to tear or rip.Which are normally oil based such as Sensations, Whipped and Lickity Stiff.

Maybe you don't want to know, I won't be offended if you leave now! KY was invented by GM to grease mechanical parts and AstroGlide was designed by NASA to lubricate O-Rings on the Space Shuttle. Now, I don't know about you but that makes my lubricant-dar go off as not my thing. Just Like Me was designed for a women's body. It absorbs into the vaginal tissue to mix with your own natural secretions. The best thing about Just Like Me is the re-wetting ability that is has. One application is all you need. A little saliva or being turned on again will cause the natural secretions to mix with the JLM bringing that lubricant right back to life!
