Flavored and Unflavored Sexual Lubricants
Lubricants are an important part of safer sex. Lubrication minimized friction during sexual activity which minimizes the chance of tears in the vagina, vulva or anus which make STI/HIV transmission more likely.
-Flavored lubricants are a bit of a gimmick, they don’t necessarily taste good. That being said the gimmick of a ‘flavored’ lubricant can sometimes be a great negotiating tool for use with condoms or when a sexual partner refuses to use condoms.
-When it makes sense, use unflavored lubricant instead, it’s less likely to stain or become tacky as fast.
-Because glycerin is often a main ingredient in lubricant, after a period of friction it can become dry or sticky, ‘re-activate’ the lube with a little water or saliva.
-If lubricating during sex is unpractical (i.e., in a car) or if you want a sexual partner to believe you are already turned on, pre-lube areas where penetration is likely to occur.
